Santa vs Rudolf slot review (Netent)

Santa vs Rudolf slot review

Their mission seems not yet to be completed. After releasing makeover slots as Twin Happiness (from Twin Spin), Imperial Riches (clone of Cosmic Fortune) or Who’s the Bride (clone of Dead or Alive), it was now time for the classic The Invisible Man slot to get a makeover. Instead of an Asian theme, it is now a Xmas theme, which is universal.

With the Santa vs Rudolf slot, Netent has given the Invisible Man a makeover, with a Xmas twist

We must admit that the features of The Invisible Man and therefore of Santa vs Rudolf are original and a great find. We are talking about the Walking Wilds and Wild Respins in the base game.

The game tops off with Santa’s Gifts and Rudolf Spins at the end of the bonus (if you get the best treatment).

You can play Santa vs Rudolf for as little as $€ 0.20 per spin. The real high rollers get what they want: the maximum bet is an astonishing $€ 400 per spin.


What are the theoretical RTP, the variance and the maximum win of the Santa vs Rudolf Slot?

The RTP is an excellent 96.35%. No reason to complain there.

The maximum win (or cap) is 200,000 coins, equivalent to a win of 10,000x the bet.

What surprises us is that such a blistering win is possible, with a maximum bet of $€ 400 per spin. Imagine that you get the maximum win in that case: it would be a surreal win of $€ 4 million.

We expect that chances are minimal. Maybe once every billion spins?

Netent qualifies this slot as a medium to high variance slot, comparable to slots as The Invisible Man, Gonzo’s Quest or Secret of the Stones.

The top wins are typically around 1,000x to 2,000x the bet.


Gameplay and features of the Santa vs Rudolf slot

Santa vs Rudolf has 20 fixed paylines that pay both ways.

As expected, the premium symbols are the typical Xmas attributes. The highest paying symbol is the Santa’s sleigh. 5-of-a-kind yields a win of 25x the bet but effectively is 50x the bet, as wins pay both ways.

Vast amounts of money are not likely to be won in the basic game of this slot. If you manage to get a full screen of either wilds or Santa’s sleighs, you bag a win of 500 x the bet. If you manage to do this 20 times in the free spins, you reach the maximum of 10,000x the stake.

The basic game of Santa vs Rudolf is mainly about the Walking Wilds.

There are two different Wild symbols: the Santa Wild and the Rudolf Wilf.

Santa only appears on the 5th reel and then walks to the 1st reel before disappearing from your screen. Rudolf does the same but in the opposite direction. He runs from the 1st reel to the 5th reel. And while one or both walks, you get a free spin for every step. A Wild, therefore, gives you four respins.

Bonus free spins

When Santa runs from the 5th reel to the 1st reel, Rudolf does so from the 1st to the 5th reel… What happens then? You guessed it: they become closest friends and embrace each other. And, even better, you get 10 free spins!

The free spins work precisely the same way as the spins in the base game. So you continue to have the Walking Wilds. And each time Santa and Rudolf meet each other again, you get another four extra spins. This way, the bonus game can last for a very long time.

But wait, there is more!

And at the end of the bonus game,  a lovely surprise may be waiting for you. Or even two surprises. If in the free spins, you manage to spin:

  • 8 Rudolf Wilds gets you the Rudolf Spins. These are three free spins with 5 Random Wilds per spider. These spins are, almost always, very lucrative.
  • 8 Santa Wilds yields the Santa’s Gifts: presents from Santa Claus. These gifts include cash prizes and multipliers.

You have to make do with playing a lot of small prizes together. And that’s possible thanks to the Wild Respins, extra spins and extra features at the end of the bonus. 


Our verdict on the Santa vs Rudolf slot machine

Santa vs Rudolf is an entertaining clone of the Invisible Man, with original features such as Walking Wilds and presents from Santa Claus. As we have all seen it before, it’s hard to give full marks though.

But, for Xmas time, it is not a bad slot at all.

Santa vs Rudolf has enough potential for some massive wins. It’s always lovely to get presents!

It is interesting to see a slot with a pretty high variance with a high maximum bet of $€ 400 per spin. It makes Santa vs Rudolf an excellent high roller slot.

The wagering requirements on all deposit bonuses are quite decent: 40 x the bonus amount. Don’t forget: If you want to avoid these bonus wagering requirements, you can always choose to decline any bonus. The max bet per spin with bonus money is unusually high at $15 per spin.
