Festive Cheer As iSoftBet Reveals Their Christmas Themed Raging Reindeer Slot!
iSoftBet is preparing to launch their Christmas themed slot for 2019 very soon in the form of Raging Reindeer, which is a 4096 pay any way slot with just a few design inspirations from the highly volatile Raging Rhino slot from WMS.
The slot is due for release in the next few weeks, and we are recommending Guts Casino as a fantastic casino to check this release out in. The decision is made even easier as they tend to run some of the best Christmas Casino promotions too!
Raging Reindeer is a 6×4 reel slot using the pay any-way payline format, effectively giving you 4096 ways to win, whilst even the title and design of this slot did raise our eyebrows initially as there has obviously been a fair amount of inspiration taken from the classic Raging Rhino slot including the multiplier wilds, 2 scatter re-triggers and general high volatility, thankfully iSoftBet has added a few twists which may actually make this slot appeal even more to players.
The most significant difference between this slot and Rhino is that during the bonus round, the highest paying Raging Reindeers symbols form wins in scatters positions rather than just traditional ways, making it a lot easier to score decent wins as the symbols and multiplier wilds can be on any reel, you need several of them to make that big win.
For such a highly volatile offering, this makes the bonus round a lot more appealing as you are simply looking for as many Raging Reindeerr Symbols and wild multipliers as possible to know you have scored a big win, the re-triggers from just 2 scatters award an extra five free spins and since you can trigger the bonus round with up to 6 scatters there is the chance of an initial 50 “Jingle Spins” from this slot too!
Check out the gameplay video below to see how the bonus features play out on this slot.

|Re-Trigger Bonus Round||Yes|
|Special Features||Free Spins
|RTP (Return To Player)||95.94%|
The Wild symbols appear on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and work as regular wilds in the base game where normal payline winning combinations are formed on the reels, however during the bonus round, they reveal 2x and 3x multipliers and also form Scatter wins when they include the highest paying Raging Reindeer symbols.
The free spins or Jingle Spins, as they are known in this slot, are triggered by 3 or more of the scatter symbols landing in view. Additional scatters award extra free spins as follows,
- 3 Scatters – 8 Jingle Spins
- 4 Scatters – 15 Jingle Spins
- 5 Scatters – 20 Jingle Spins
- 6 Scatters – 50 Jingle Spins
You can also re-trigger the bonus round multiple times during the bonus round. This can be done with just 2 Scatters, which awards an extra 5 Jingle Spins.
Raging Reindeer Slot Review
Raging Reindeer Overall Opinions
The Raging Reindeer Slot from iSoftbet is a reasonably solid medium/high variance slot. We have mentioned the design inspiration of Raging Rhino several times in our review, and whilst this doesn’t offer anything hugely different apart from the tweaks to the scatter like pays in the bonus round, it actually makes for an enjoyable bonus feature.
In our playtests, we managed several good bonus rounds well over 100x stake, several that included bonus re-triggers. The scatter like pays are a novel twist to this kind of slot and may actually make the gameplay much more appealing to players and slightly less volatile in nature.
Overall a decent Christmas themed slot that will definitely appeal to Raging Rhino fans, although it may not be as super high variance. Much more playtesting is required to validate that but definitely worth checking out over the Christmas period for a festive twist to a solid style of slot!
