Return of the Rudolph Slot Review

Return of the Rudolph is a Realtime Gaming progressive slot with 50 pay lines. It's the third game is a series of Christmas theme slots and combines the free spin features from the previous Rudolph's Revenge and Santa Strikes Back slots. Max bet is 50 coins so you can play for as little as 0.50 or as much as 250.00 per spin.

The progressive jackpot starts at $5,000 and is won by getting five of the scattered Thug symbols anywhere on the screen. It's quite unusual to have the scatters as the jackpot combination as you would expect that this is easier to hit than getting five of the same symbol on a pay line.

The Rudolph symbol is wild and appears on all five reels. The wild appears stacked on the middle reel only and if the whole reel is wild any win is tripled. Five Rudolph symbols pay a nice 2,000 coins or 6,000 coin is the whole middle reel is covered.

After the progressive win and the top line win the five of a kind payouts range from 1,500 to 100 coins or 4,500 to 300 if the X3 multiplier is activated by the stacked wilds. In total there are 39 unique winning combinations on the reels.

Return of the Rudolph has three different free spins bonuses, two of which have been uses before on previous games in the series. All three features are triggered by getting three, or four of the scatters anywhere on the reels. Getting five scatters triggers the jackpot only and does not award any free spins.

Every time you get three or more scattered Thug symbols you have to select a thug to reveal your random free spin feature. The features you can win are as follows;

Rudolph's Rampage Feature (Preview)

You move to a pick a box bonus stage where you have to find elves to win free spins and bonuses. The amount of free games that you win is based on how fast your find the elves. Get them all in 3 pick sand you win 50 free games. Take 8 picks and you get just 5 spins.

During the pick a box stage elves can appear with gifts. These gifts can make the free spins even better. You can get all three gifts in a single bonus and the special features awarded are as follows;

  • Blue Gift : All prizes are quadrupled during the free spins.
  • Red Gift : All scattered Thug symbols become wild during the free games
  • Green Gift : Rudolph wild appears stacked on reel three for all free spins.

Once you have finished the pick a box stage you move back to the reels. If you did not find a Blue Gift all wins on the free spins are doubled. If you managed to find the Blue Gift and the Re Gift it's possible to get multiplies as high as X12 on the free spins.

Santa Strikes Back Feature (Preview)

This bonus is the same as the one found on the original Santa Strikes Back slot machine. You start the bonus with 7 free games and a multiplier of X1. Candy Canes are added to the Santa, Rudolph and Thug symbols and Stars appear on each reel. Light up all five stars to reset the free spins to 7 games and increase the multiplier by X1. The free games can be reset up to 9 times for a big X9 win multiplier.

Rudolph's Revenge Feature (Preview)

Again, this is the same bonus that the original Rudolph's Revenge slot machine has. Once triggered you win 7 free spins with all wins doubled and multiplied by the amount of Rudolph symbols appearing on the screen. If you trigger this bonus with four scatters the Thug symbols also transform into wild Rudolph symbols.

While all of the free spins bonuses offer some great ways to win it's pretty clear that potentially the best feature is the Rudolph's Rampage bonus where you can win up to 50 free games with a fixed wild reel and up to X12 multipliers. As you would expect this is the least common of the three features to come up.

It's also worth noting that while the progressive jackpot can be triggered during the free spins it is never multiplied no matter what win multiplier you have,

In the end, Return of the Rudolph combines the features from all of the previous games in the series. This makes it a bit like three games in one and keeps things exciting as you never know what bonus will come up when you hit the three scatters.
