Christmas is about to be ruined, but this time it’s not Scrooge, the Grinch, nor the Gremlins who have the intention to throw a spanner in the works. Nope, this time it’s none other than Santa’s loyal reindeer friend with the red nose! Yes, Rudolf and his stubbornness result in Santa’s face becoming redder than Rudolf’s nose! Will he give in or not?
Santa vs stubborn reindeer!
When Christmas is around the corner, it’s all joy and happiness you expect with Santa’s elves being all cheerful and delighted with the best time of the year closing in! The elves might be as cheerful as can be, but it’s not all going well in the North Pole this year as Rudolf is up to no good!
The story goes that he’s hidden Santa’s hat and it looks like he’s not going to give in! Rudolf is a bit silly though as Santa is due to embark on his journey to deliver gifts around the world to the millions of children who have secretly written Santa with their deepest wishes, waiting for him with warm milk and cookies!
Have you ever wondered how Santa is able to transform himself into any size to fit into a chimney or teleport him and others around the world in a split-second? All of this is because of his magical hat, without his magical hat Santa loses most of his magical powers and this will end up in a true catastrophe even The Grinch would be jealous of!
It’s obvious that Rudolf doesn’t feel like going on a trip around the world and it can’t happen without Santa having his magical hat! Isn’t it The Grinch who’s trying to kill the spirit and joy of Christmas in the world in order to ruin Christmas, it’s Rudolf stealing Santa’s hat as well! Christmas is always in danger of being ruined because Christmas won’t take place without Santa’s hat, his magical bell and, most importantly, the spirit and joy of Christmas in the world! But who would have thought that the danger of Christmas being ruined this year is caused by Santa’s most loyal friend, Rudolf!
And if you think men, in general, can be super stubborn, meet Rudolf! He’s not much impressed by Santa’s anger, and they’re about to clash big time in NetEnt’s funniest Christmas-themed video slot Santa vs Rudolf™! Will Rudolf eventually give up in order to save Christmas?

Santa vs Rudolf™ slot features
Did you ever enjoy the Invisible Man™ slot, you’ll most likely enjoy the Santa vs Rudolf™ slot as well since they share the exact same gameplay! Therefore, you can expect a medium/high volatility, a both-way-win slot mechanism, and video slot features including Re-Spins, Free Spins, Wilds, Walking Wilds and 2 enticing Bonus features: Rudolf Spins en Santa’s Gifts.
Instead of the Invisible Man and the police officer, you now find an annoyed Santa and stubborn Rudolf next to the reels and on the reels. The Christmas spirit is brought to you differently this year as a battle between Santa and his usually loyal reindeer is about to take off! This might end up in a collision between the two and even though it doesn’t seem to be in the advantage of Christmas, it will be to you!
In the main game, you see a desperate Santa on the left of the reels and a mischievous Rudolf on the right. In between, on the five reels, it’s all Christmassy with bells ringing and presents waiting to be delivered by the sleigh. However, the focus will be on Santa and Rudolf, who are both owning a Wild in the Santa vs Rudolf™ slot. Both are able to substitute for any other symbol and activate Re-spins as long as they are walking on the reels, but Santa’s Wild will be running over the reels from left to right while Rudolf is stumbling over the reels from right to left.
That’s how the battle can unfold with Santa and Rudolf Walking on the same reel, but both in a different direction just like the Invisible Man en the Police Officer in The Invisible Man™ slot. Now it’s Santa vs Rudolf™, but the same Free Spins feature will be the result. So when the Santa Wild and the Rudolf Wild are in the same position on the reels, these two will collide after which 10 Free Spins are activated with a maximum of 30 free spins available.
During Free Spins, Santa is mad as can be and Rudolf still doesn’t want to give up on his newly invented game! During Free Spins, they both return to the reel as Wilds where the same incidents are about to happen. This time, a collision between the two results in an additional 4 free spins. On top of the Santa vs Rudolf™ slot, you’ll find two meters, one for Rudolf and one for Santa. As if Christmas could use even more hostility between the two.
If Santa’s Wild falls off the reels, one space on the Santa Meter is filled with 7 spaces more to go and the same goes for Rudolf’s Wild and the Rudolf Meter. A full meter for Santa triggers the Santa’s Gifts feature while a full Rudolf Meter activates Rudolf Spins.
Thanks to a full Rudolf Meter during Free Spins, you’ll be enjoying the Rudolf Spins. There will be 3 of them where 5 randomly placed Rudolf Wilds appear randomly on the reels.
Are you awarded the Santa’s Gifts bonus feature, you’ll be asked to pick 3 out of 5 items to reveal their prizes. The 5 items consist of 3 Coin Wins of various amounts, 1 Multiplier increase and 1 end of stage item. When you pick a Coin Win or Multiplier, you’ll be safe and lucky, but an End of the Stage item will send you back to the game. If you managed to pick the right items, you’ll make it to level two with higher prizes and another level to reach.
