Return of the Rudolph Slots
Don't let the name of this popular Real Time Gaming video slot fool you - Return of the Rudolph Slots isn't just for the Christmas Holiday. Although it's true that RTG set it off a little while ago as the third member of a trilogy of Christmas-time-themed Slots, Return of the Rudolph can be played year-round for big cash and prizes. Just imagine sitting back with a cup of eggnog and a Christmas dessert, racking up the change on a winter holiday. If you played and liked Santa Strikes Back or Rudolph's Revenge, then this one is sure to be a hit because of RTG's improvements.
Return of the Rudolph Slots Game Details
Obviously, the hero of this game is the fabled red-nose reindeer of the jolly red gift-giver himself, Santa Claus. Sporting 5 reels and 50 paylines, Return of the Rudolph Slots is a rather large slot with dozens of ways to win. When you take into account the incredible $250 maximum bet per spin, this gears up to be one heckuva good evening of gameplay (potentially). Plus, it's a Progressive Slot, which means everyone player puts a piece into the end-game jackpot - but just one lucky winner takes it all home, to the tune of 50,000 times the amount you bet per payline.
The symbols on the reels should be familiar to anyone who's ever heard of Santa claus and his magic reindeer. Rendered crisp and bright with RTG's famous attention to detail, there's the Rudolph Wild symbol, which enhances your chances of winning by substituting for any other symbol except the Thugs Scatter symbol. Other symbols are the Elf, Dwarf, Sleigh, Teddy Bear Present, Santa himself and the higher card jackets like the Jack, Nine, Ace, Queen and King. Each winning spin combination greets you with a melodic chime. The Free Spins and Bonus Features add more money to the pot.
Return of the Rudolph Slots has so many Bonus Opportunities that there's actually a "pick 'em" feature, which allows you to choose which one you want to play - assuming you get the Thugs symbols needed to unlock the pick 'em attribute. Getting at least three Thugs allows you to try out:
- Rudolph's Rampage: The goal in this Bonus Stage is to find the loot hidden by Santa's Elves. Basically, since you're a reindeer, you're robbing family! All around Santa's workshop, the elves are hiding from you, and you need to use a limited number of chances to find them - the more of the eight picks you use to find the three hidden elves, the less valuable the Bonus prize you claim at the end. Up to a hopping 50 Free Spins await the true detective - along with whatever gifts the found elves bring along with them.
- Rudolph's Revenge: Yes; this refers to a Bonus Game within the game - not the main slot itself. A Double Multiplier kicks in to help you rack up the cash and prizes, along with seven Free Spins and the number of Rudolph symbols on the reels. There's a whole bunch of possible retriggers and extra spins in this Bonus Game.
- Santa Strikes Back: The final possible Bonus Game, there are Free Spins, Multipliers and more to help you stumble upon a winning strategy. The important symbols here are the Thug, Rudolph, Santa and a Candy Cane background. Every single Candy Cane that randomly pops up sets the star at the top of the screen alight; get seven of these and you get seven Free Spins. The Multiplier might show up to double these winnings even further.
Because Return of the Rudolph Slots is a Progressive, you might want to consider playing the max bet from time-to-time - do so responsibly, however! The end-game jackpot is worth it, and consistently betting all paylines means you up your chances for the Free Spins and the larger payout amounts. RTG has done it again - and you don't have to wait until the holidays to cash out.
