Santa Claus Slot with a Twist!

You’ve undoubtedly heard of reindeer games, but Rudolf has taken it too far! Santa vs Rudolf turns everything you thought you knew about Christmas on its head in this amusing and cartoonish 5-reels and 20 fixed paylines slot.

An animated and very confused Santa stands at one end of the reels while a defiant Rudolf stands on the other. Get ready as the sparks are about to fly!

The transparent reels hold all manner of Santa-related references including his sleigh, bag of toys, sleigh bells, Naughty or Nice list and a snow globe. Five very tasty-looking candy canes moulded into royal flush symbols make up the low-paying end. The orchestral Christmas music is playful, mischievous and magical all rolled into one.

Wild Symbols: Santa Claus and Rudolf

Santa vs Rudolf slot game features two wild symbols which are the Santa and the Rudolf. They surface on the fifth and first reels respectively in the main game and on all reels within the free spins. They can substitute for all the other symbols.

Each of these symbols is a walking wild that shifts one space linearly after each re-spin towards the reel farthest from them until they fall off completely.
