Rudolph Awakens from RTG builds on the successful series of Rudolph vs Santa slots with the help of a nudge feature, expanded Rudolph wild and free games.
Following the success of, ‘Return of the Rudolph’ and ‘Rudolph’s Revenge,’ this latest instalment offers maximum payouts of 50,000x bet per payline.
Comical Christmas Twist
Rudolph Awakens has improved on the artwork of its predecessors with a less-cluttered design and animation. Rudolph Awakens slot is not your conventional feel-good Santa Claus story as you’ll quickly discover. It seems that Santa and Rudolph have had a falling out – to put it mildly!
The setting is the frozen outdoors of the North Pole, where the transparent reels are decorated in Christmas lights. Still, curiously enough there’s evidence of war with caltrops laid in the snow, unexploded bombs, arrows and a half-buried hatch descending into an underground bunker.
There are four top-paying symbols which payout with as little as two on a payline. These include a machine gun-packing Santa, missile-carrying penguin, an elf with a flame thrower and a very revealing female Claus. It’s not hard to imagine what her weapon might be!
As part of the lower-paying symbols, the classic 9 through to ace royal flush family of six symbols round out the total.
The artwork is a hilarious contradiction to the seriousness of the ‘Jingle Bells’ tune that chimes in the background. Animation in this slot further adds to the amusement which might come from a baseball bat-swinging Rudolph, machine gun-firing Santa or other sources.
Rudolph Awakens Wild
Rudolph awakens as a wild symbol that can appear on the second to fourth reels only. He replaces all the other symbols except the ‘Extra Games,’ and is fully expanded. When partially appearing on the second and fourth reels in the main game, the Rudolph Wild will nudge his way to cover it entirely. Rudolph can nudge himself onto all three reels during the free games.
Rudolph Awakens Feature
When Rudolph fully appears on the third reel, then the slot awards ten free games with the triggering Rudolph initially frozen in place. Rudolph, who nudges himself to cover the second to fourth reels fully, is frozen in ice when first appearing. He remains frozen on the reel until the ice holding them melts.
During play, it is possible to receive three extra games, up to three times, when the ‘Extra Games’ symbol appears on the first and fifth reels.
Not Your Childhood Rudolph!
Rudolph Awakens slot is played on 5×3 (reels x rows) with anywhere from one to thirty paylines. For the best odds, we recommend that you activate all of them. South African players can play the slot from as little as R0.01 to as much as R150 per round. Take the slot with you on an Android or iOS device for your tablet/mobile, or play it on desktop.
The game is an entertaining twist to the conventional childhood notion of a jolly Santa and a Rudolph engaging in reindeer games. Visit a casino today to see for yourself! For more RTG slot game reviews click here.
