Rudolph Awakens Slots
Christmas must be one of the best themes for software developers to get their teeth into. Some go for traditional festive themes and ideas, while others try and put a different spin on things. That's what we are going to see here, with the new Rudolph Awakens slot - ready to bring on the Christmas cheer and er… drama?
Developer details for Rudolph Awakens
If you thought this could be the latest in a series of festive slot delights from RTG, you were right about that. But could it be the best of the lot so far?
Don't miss the demo experience
And what an experience it is. Be sure to check this out first, so you can see if you like it enough to try the real thing.
A Christmassy theme you'll love
We certainly did when we tried it. It's festive and features all the relevant icons and images you would expect to see.
A festive design from Realtime Gaming
There may well be a dramatic edge to this theme, but we think it is possible to have some entertainment spinning the reels of the game. Santa, Rudolph, and everyone else appears on the reels here, along with gifts and plenty more besides.
Basic features to expect from Rudolph Awakens slots
This game boasts five reels, but while there is a lot to look out for, progressive jackpots aren't part of the deal.
Rudolph Wilds are part of the action though, cropping up on all the middle three reels of the game. They offer a Nudge feature on the second and fourth reels. If one appears in partial form, it is nudged to cover that entire reel. This would occur before prizes are calculated, as the Nudge feature could result in an extra prize or two.
How many paylines are there in Rudolph Awakens?
There are 30 paylines present and ready to use during play.
Plenty of bets to suit most players
RTG games tend to have lots of assorted bets and values to work with. This one looks to be no exception to the rule.
Have you seen the paytable yet?
If you are about to begin play, hang fire and check out the paytable first. It explains everything you would need to know about playing the game.
No bonus to look out for
Oh no… have things started going downhill? This slot seemed like a winner. Hang on, though… there is far more to this than you might think.
Get ready for the free spins feature
This is where the entertainment really gets underway. The middle reel may produce a Rudolph Wild during the base game. There is no Nudge feature on the middle reel, remember, so watch and see if Rudolph can fill the reel without help. If he does, 10 free spins will begin. When they do, you can expect the Nudge feature to work on reel three as well as the other two either side of it.
From the start of the first spin, the wild that triggered the round is frozen in position. Rudolph is literally frozen in ice. It doesn't look good for him, but of course it is great for you as you can benefit from his wild status. An elf will gradually attempt to free him, so he'll stay there until this happens. If a wild manages to appear on reel two or four (or both), the same frozen feature occurs there too. This keeps the elves busy, and with the chance to benefit from those wilds, you could be kept busy collecting prizes too. We sure hope so.
There is another symbol to watch out for as you play these spins. It is marked EXTRA GAMES. You need one of them to show up on the first and fifth reels simultaneously. When this occurs, three further spins are added to your remaining total. Do it again, and you get more spins!
