Santa vs Rudolf

The game is accompanied by supporting Christmas music with a lighter and funnier theme. Special features of this slot include wins both ways, walking wilds, free spins and two types of bonus games.

Walking Wilds with Re-Spins, Free Spins and Bonus Games
The game has two wild symbols that can stand in for other game symbols to create paying combinations and they start re-spins. The Santa Wild can appear on reel 5 and it moves one step to the right with each re-spin. The Rudolf Wild can appear on reel 1 and it moves to the left.
These re-spins can be very rewarding, especially when more wilds appear on the reels and the re-spins continue. If you're lucky and the two wilds meet on the screen the free spins will start. You start with an initial 10 free spins, but if there are more symbol collisions you can win up to 30 free spins.
During the free spins feature you'll see two meters above the reels, which will be filled with Santa and Rudolf symbols respectively each time you get one of those symbols on the screen. Once a meter is filled the corresponding feature will be activated at the end of the free spins.
Rudolf Spins: You'll get three free spins with five wild symbols scattered at random positions on the reels in every spin.
Santa's Gifts: In this pick and click bonus game you'll move through three stages collecting gifts along the way. You can collect coin wins and multipliers. You can pick prizes until you open the End of Stage gift. The collected coins are then multiplied with the collected multiplier, which can be a maximum of x4.
