Santa vs Rudolph Slot Review (NetEnt)

Santa vs Rudolph SlotSanta is bringing the Christmas goodies with this new release by NetEnt. The new slot is based on a storyline touching on a fight between the video slot’s main characters, Santa and Rudolf.

Rudolph is a little cheeky and he has hidden Santa’s hat, a few hours to their trip around the world. This slot that comes with some really cool features is based on 5x3 reels. There are a total of 20 fixed lines available.

Santa vs Rudolf has the potential to pay top prices of upto1, 000 xs which translates to $100,000 when using the highest bet price.

For the RTP, Santa vs Rudolf doesn’t do so badly and the slot has 96.30%. What really excited me about this slot are the many features that NetEnt offers for this game. I was spoilt for choice with the free spins, wilds, and bonus features (2 in totals) not to forget the Walking Wilds that are accompanied by a respin feature.

Betting and Prizes

Betting price is within the normal range; it starts at $0.20 and can go to as high as $100 per spin.

Santa vs Rudolf is a Medium volatility slot which works well with the RTP of 96.30% that NetEnt offers for this slot.

Santa vs Rudolph Slot Features

The two Walking wilds are Santa and Rudolph. They are also present on the reels with Santa appearing on reel 5, while Rudolf appears on reel 1.Since these two are wilds, they, boost your odds of forming new combos.

To trigger 10 free spins, both Rudolph and Santa will need to meet as Walking Wilds. They will then be required to clash if they attempt to take over the same reel. If you manage to get the slot to this mode, it will be easy for you to land the Walking Wilds on any reel.

Santa vs Rudolf also comes with two meters with each representing a type of wild.          

The gift that Santa offers for this slot is the bonus game. This is more of a pick and click type of bonus that offers a payout of up to 188x.

Rudolf Spins has the ability to trigger up to 3 extra free rounds; this also comes with five regular wilds that are systematically placed each time. Throughout these 3 rounds, you can enjoy a payout of up to 1,350xs your total stake.

Theme & Design

Santa vs Rudolf bears a Christmas-themed storyline as is evidenced by its decorations that are based on a cartoon-style design. As I have already mentioned, the slot’s main focus is on a fight that is between the two main characters who are Santa and Rudolph.

Rudolph has hidden Santa’s hat as he was getting ready to give children some gifts for Christmas. This gets him really mad which degenerates into a fight between the two.

The symbols that you can expect to see here include candy cane style Royals, gifts, the slot’s two main characters, sleighs, statues, and a statue of a reindeer.


Santa vs Rudolph is a fun game to play during the winter holidays, with a good story and even better features.
