Rudolph’s Ride is part of a very large collection of Christmas themed slots, which has been increasing in size over the years. In the last 4-6 weeks of each year, a lot of developers are releasing new slots for this category, and here we have one from Booming Games.
We’re looking at a slot which has 20 fixed bet lines on 5x3 reels, so pretty much the standard layout for such a game. It’s going to have wins as high as 1,000x the stake, or up to $200,000 per spin, but that’s not taking into account the 3x multipliers from the free spins. Other features involved are the wild and the scatter.
Betting and Prizes
When you’re betting in Rudolph’s Ride, you need to keep in mind that you’re setting it up for 20 lines at a time, and so you can’t go lower than $0.20. If you want to max out the line bet, you will have to do it for all lines at the same time, and this can take you to $200. The line bet hits a maximum level of $10.
The regular rounds will bring you rewards of up to 1,000 coins per line, or 1,000x the total stake for all lines. What this means is that a $200 bet will bring you up to $10,000 per line, or $200,000 total. You can triple this amount during the third level of the free spins, so in theory you could get even as much as $600,000 in one go. It’s a lot of money, but you get only 3,000x the stake, a better than average amount but not an impressive one.
Rudolph’s Ride Slot Features
You mostly have regular features in Rudolph’s Ride, but I’ve found some interesting options as well.
First of all, the Majors, or the high-paying symbols, are going to be stacked on the reels. They make it a little bit more likely to have multiple wins at the same time.
Wild symbols are the ones to deliver the slot’s biggest wins though, as symbols which offer 1,000 coins if you get five lined-up on the same line. Otherwise, you can still count on them to be substitutes in other situations, when they’re next to regular symbols.
Second, you have a symbol with the game logo in it, and this one will help you reach the free spins feature. Three on the reels are required, and the slot triggers 8 free spins at level 1. If you retrigger the feature after that, you finish up the first set of free spins, then advance to level 2, where wins are doubled in value. Get another three scatters after that, and once again you gain 8 free spins at level 3, with tripled wins. This is the last level, so once you get to this point, you keep getting additional level 3 free spins if you retrigger the feature.
Theme & Design
You will get a Christmas themed game here, with a focus on the famous red-nosed reindeer, called Rudolph. Once you go past the feature symbols, with the Wild or the game logo, you have images of Rudolph, Santa, Mrs Santa, the sleigh with gifts, an elf and four card suit themed gift socks, filled with goodies. It’s a traditional-style Christmas, in a slot that is well designed.
Rudolph’s Ride looks like a fun game to try out for the winter holidays, thanks to both its features and its payouts.
