With Christmas fast approaching, Netent has just unveiled their seasonal online slot for 2019 in the form of Santa Vs Rudolf, an unusual battle between friends to get Christmas back on track starting with Santa getting his hat back…
Hello Casino has this colourful Xmas themed 20 payline slot already available to play at their casino. Ignoring the back story to this slot, the main features on offer are walking wilds which come from both directions granting lots of re-spins in the base game. An unusual trigger mechanic where the Santa and Rudolf wilds collide when they cross paths triggering the main bonus round, followed by 2 further triggerable bonus rounds that are reached by collecting a specific number of these wilds during the free spins.
For a seasoned slots player, this is might all sound familiar for a NetEnt slot, and that, unfortunately, is the case, as this slot really does seem to be a Christmas themed re-skin of the Invisible Man slot released back in 2014.
Whilst new players might not recognise this, unfortunately, we did and so it does make reviewing such a release difficult as you have literally seen it all before and know exactly what is in store, with a distinct feeling of disappointment that nothing new is on offer!
A low to medium variance slot, with very interesting mechanics that really could have benefitted from a bit more volatility!
Visually this slot is fine, if you never got round to playing the Invisible Man then you might have some initial fun on this release as long as you are aware that hoping for 100x wins are more realistic goals rather than some incredibly huge wins.
