Rudolph Awakens Review
There are no prizes for guessing as to what this slot game by RTG is going to all be about. In fact, it feels as if Rudolph Awakens is part of a series of games with this festive theme, so does it do anything markedly different from the rest? Well, yes it does as Rudolph and Santa are on the rampage including holding weapons, so what’s going on?
Overview of Rudolph Awakens
The first thing you notice about the game is that it contains a 5×3 reel setup while it also offers you a total of 30 paylines. Also, the game has a medium to high variance rate, so keep that in mind when it comes to working out how likely you are to land some winning lines. The backdrop is clearly festive in nature while the symbols carefully reflect the game in question. There are gifts, Rudolph, Santa, Mrs. Santa, elves, and many others you will recognize.
How to Play Rudolph Awakens
To play, you need to select the size of your bet per line by clicking on the plus or minus symbols next to the box in the bottom left corner. Next, you have to select the number of paylines you want to bet on, and you change the value by clicking on the same symbols beside the paylines box. As you do this, check out how your total bet cost changes in the middlebox to see what you are gambling. Once you are happy, hit that spin button to see what happens.
Bonus Features for Rudolph Awakens
The game comes with both wilds and free spins as a bonus. The wild is represented by Rudolph himself, and he pops up on the middle 3 reels. When he does, he’s going to substitute himself for other symbols as usual.
The main bonus feature is the free spins, but you trigger this in a more unconventional way. Forget landing a number of scatters, you need to land Rudolph on the middle reel and for him to cover the entire middle reel. Then, you land 10 free spins which can be increased by another 3 free spins if you land the Extra Game symbols on reels 1 or 5.
Betting and Payouts for Rudolph Awakens
The betting range for this game starts as low as $0.30 for a single payline up to a maximum of $9 per spin. This is lower than you will tend to see elsewhere, while the RTP for this game is at an impressive 96%. Also, the jackpot is set at 50,000x your initial stake, so there’s a real chance of landing an impressive win. To grab this jackpot, you need to get Rudolph himself, but the odds of this remain low. Other high paying symbols include Santa and Mrs. Santa with the card symbols being more to the lower end of the payment ladder.
Rudolph Awakens is like a normal slot game aside from the theme which somehow doesn’t quite fit in with the game itself. The free spins section is slightly different from the norm, and the jackpot is an impressive figure even though it’s going to be tough landing it when so much is at stake.
