NetEnt launches Christmas slot Santa vs. Rudolph

Santa vs Rudolph NetEnt

With Christmas just around the corner, Swedish casino games developer Net Entertainment has released the latest installment to its Xmas catalogue. Players will find themselves in the company of Santa Claus and Rudolph who have just had a serious spat.

Instead of trying to secure the Christmas magic, the pair will fight for player’s affection, offering better rewards. The game brings festive cheer to the holiday season. In fact, players will find an amusing twist to the whole jolly old man idea.

Players will also dig in deep in the snow-dusted North Pole. It’s the place where Santa has set up his workshop to produce the world’s supply of presents. However, one thing seems amiss. Rudolph has decided to sit out the holiday, and he has hidden Santa’s hat – the source of Father Christmas’ magic.

And so, you will have to choose whether to side with Santa or Rudolph. Help Santa retrieve the magic hat, a highly valuable item, or accept gifts from Rudolph. All Rudolph wants is your affection.

The Christmas Spirit at Stake in Santa vs Rudolph

The slot itself features several fresh gameplay elements, such as Walking Wilds, Free Spins, and Re-Spins. There is even the opportunity to substitute your wild symbols for even better presents this Christmas!

As to the user interface, you will see all the usual symbols reminding you of the time of the year. There are gingerbread-shaped letters and various presents, Santa’s belt and a snow globe with a reindeer inside.

All of this amounts to 96.35% in total return-to-player (RTP) rates so ready yourself for a real blast this year! NetEnt Director of Games, Bryan Upton, was pleased with the latest addition to the holiday season catalogue. He noted that Santa vs Rudolf was inspired by the success of Jingle Spin and was building on that specific ambience.

As it turns out, Rudolph and Santa are really just looking to square out who represents the season better.
