Santa vs Rudolf Review

Santa vs Rudolf is all about Walking Wilds re-spins in combination with win both ways. Win both ways also means that a Walking Wild has the potential to win multiple times as it moves from reel to reel. The Walking Wilds also trigger Free Spins, so no scatter gets in the way of paylines!

Theme and Graphics

The Santa vs Rudolf slot game has an obvious Christmas theme. It's based on the magical time of year, but all is not as it seems at the North Pole - Rudolf is up to no good, having hidden Santa's hat just before he's about to deliver presents around the world.

With cartoon-style graphics and a cheerful soundtrack, you'll be whisked away to the North Pole, where Santa and Rudolf squat on either side of the reels. Symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 in the style of candy canes - you'll also see letters to Santa, snow globes, reindeer collars, gift bags and Santa's sleigh. The latter pays the most: 3, 4 or 5 on a payline will bring you 1, 7.5 or 25 times your total bet. Winning combinations are formed from left to right and from right to left.

RTP and Volatility

We experienced a mix of low and high wins in this game, and this is due to the volatility of Santa vs Rudolf, which is in the middle range on the scale. The bigger wins were not as frequent, but we had enough balance to keep the game interesting. The RTP on Santa vs. Rudolf is also rather generous at 96.35%. So, If you are looking for a slot with balanced winnings, Santa vs. Rudolf with its high RTP is a good place to start.

Betting Limits

The game has 1-10 standard bet levels and different coin values: (€) 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1. The default minimum/maximum bet is 0.2/100 €. Minimum free spin values - bet level 1, 20 bet lines, €0.01 coin value (cost €0.2).

Free Spins and Bonuses

During the base game, you can trigger two different wilds - one for Santa and one for Rudolph. Whenever Santa appears on the reels, he triggers a respin sequence where he moves to the left on the reels and the respins continue until he no longer appears on the reels. The same happens with Rudolph, except that his symbol moves to the right on the reels.

When Santa and Rudolph appear on the reels at the same time and their symbols collide, they trigger the free spins round. During this bonus, you get 10 free spins and two metres appear above the reels: one for Santa and one for Rudolph. Each metre increases when one of the wild symbols appears. If you manage to fill either metre, you trigger one of the following bonuses:

  • Santa's Gifts: a pick-a-prize bonus where you can get cash prizes or multiplier increases.
  • Rudolph Spins: three free spins where additional Rudolph wild symbols are added to the reels on each spin


Santa vs Rudolf slot machine is visually different from other Christmas-themed slot machines - it has a certain authentic feel. This medium variance slot can pay out up to 1,000 times your bet on each spin or free spin if you fill the reels with the high value Santa sleigh symbol (500 times bet in both directions).

You can expect rather low volatility here. You can spend an hour with this slot and still end up with the same balance as when you started. It's not particularly generous in terms of potential, and the only way to really win big is to hit the Rudolf Spins.
