It’s time to get into the spirit of the festive season with another new entry into the Rudolph vs Santa selection of slots from one famous software provider. We’re going to learn everything there is to know about Rudolph Awakens in our slot review.
It’s RTG, of course, who created other superb titles in this series in recent years.
Exactly like the real thing, you can try the demo to see how good the game is before working out a budget to play it.
It seems Rudolph has a beef with Santa, as this game ramps up the drama we saw in previous series entries. However, at its heart, this is a Christmas-themed online slot.
Just as festive as you would expect, with a snowy backdrop for the reels to appear in front of. Various festive characters appear on the reels, including Rudolph and Father Christmas, of course. This is a cartoon-style slot and it looks every bit the part.
This is a five-reel slot, but it does not have a festive progressive jackpot involved. That said, the paytable contains plenty of potential prizes.
You can expect to see Rudolph Wilds during play, which can potentially appear on the middle three reels of the game. They also have a Nudge feature, which means they can nudge into position to cover the second or fourth reels before your prizes are calculated.
It looks like we are going to see 30 of them here.
Just under the line quantity, you’ll see a chance to adjust your coin value. RTG has given us a selection of coins to suit most budgets.
This is always a good idea, but especially if you want to play the real version of the game. The rest of our review will touch on some special features, but you should check out the various elements explained in the paytable as well.
Don’t worry, though – we’re not done yet!
To secure 10 free games, you must receive a full height Rudolph Wild on the third reel of the game. During these spins, any Rudolph Wild that appears on any of those middle three reels will always Nudge into position to ensure he fills the relevant reel. That includes the third reel, which isn’t the case in the base game.
But that doesn’t cover everything you can expect to see in the free games. Whenever Rudolph appears on a reel, he is frozen in a block of ice. That means he stays put until a helpful elf comes along to free him. This applies to the Rudolph Wild that triggers the free games to begin, too. You could end up with some frozen fun and games during this feature, for sure.
Watch out too for an extra symbol that says EXTRA GAMES. You’ll get three more free games if this appears on the first and fifth reels simultaneously during the freebies.
This is unknown at present.
We haven’t had the chance to play this yet, but from what we know this must surely be at least 8 out of 10. We might even upgrade that to 9 out of 10, as Rudolph looks useful during play.
Reports state the biggest prize would be 50,000x your bet, so if you managed to trigger that, you could well be celebrating even more than usual this Christmas.
When the game is released, you’ll get to try the demo version. We suggest starting with that to see what you think.
This festive season, you’ll get the chance to see the new Rudolph Awakens slot game, so you can find out how exciting it really is.
Yes, the game is released on all platforms this year, including Android and iOS.
