It’s Christmas time, and we all get into that festive mood, whether we want to admit it or not. Everything is related to holidays these days – movies, shopping, food, but games as well. Christmas is the best time of year for cute, fun slots, and probably the best examples can be found in Realtime Gaming’s games suite. Remember the ones called “Rudolph’s Revenge” and “Santa Strikes Back?” They turned the Christmas innocence upside down. Well, if you liked those, I bet you’ll also love “Return of the Rudolph,” the third one in the Rudolph series.
This hilarious Christmas slot is played on five reels and as much as 50 paylines, which occasionally prove to be very generous. If you played its predecessors, you’ll probably recognize the main characters – Rudolph, which is now more devilish than ever, attacked Santa, poor tortured Elf, and many torn gifts. The setting of the slot is wonderfully Christmasy, and it’s hard to imagine what’s going on all over its reels. The battle is serious this time, and there’s no winner in sight. Just winning possibilities. And with special features, like wild and scatter symbol, as well as free spins and multipliers, winning seems like a realistic prospect.
However, winning is not possible in this game if you don’t invest some money first. To place money into the machine, you need to pick the coin amount, which goes from $0.01 to $5 per payline. Unfortunately, you aren’t given the option to choose the number of lines, so you have to play on all 50, which may force you to spend more than you initially counted on.
The mean Rudolph’s back, and he plans to reward the attention you gave him. He will do so by substituting for all other symbols in the slot, except the scattered Thugs. Grouped Rudolph can be seen only on the third reel, and when you get all three of them on reel 3, they expand and turn into a wild reel, which triples all prizes it participates in.
If this is not enough for you and you’re up for more excitement, then you should hope for a bonus round, which is triggered by three or four scattered Thugs, appearing anywhere on the reels. You may wonder why five scatters don’t start the feature round – it’s because five scatters will win you the”Return of the Rudolph” jackpot, which is a prize high enough for a single combination.
So, when you do trigger the bonus round, you’ll be prompted to choose one of the scatters to get one of the three possible features. Rudolph’s Rampage feature gives you up to 50 free spins, and potential additional benefits during the free games; Santa Strikes Back feature also gives away free spins with increasing multiplier, just like Rudolph’s Revenge, which also grants free spins with a 2x multiplier and potential additional Rudolphs.
Prizes in “Return of the Rudolph” are rarer but bigger, so don’t despair if you don’t get anything in the first couple of spins. The possibilities offered in this game are immense, and all you have to do is make yourself comfortable and prepare for loads of fun. And hopefully, loads of money, as well.
