New Holiday Online Casino Games: Reindeer Games
It is time! The holidays are quickly approaching, and the first of the holiday-themed online slot games are almost available on Australia’s hottest online casinos.
Reindeer are popular in the newest games this season, as Realtime Gaming releases Rudolph Awakens and iSoftBet takes a different path with Raging Reindeer.
Realtime Gaming Introduces Rudolph Awakens
This game is set to be released on November 27, and players will find Rudolph with a different attitude than what was portrayed in children’s stories. This is most definitely an adult-themed game.
Realtime Gaming shows Rudolph with some previously unreleased anger, holding a bat and smoking a cigar. Santa and the elves are armed with machine guns. And Mrs. Claus is popping out of her skimpy Christmas dress.
Rudolph Awakens Basics
Set to the tune of Jingle Bells, Rudolph starts each spin trapped in a block of ice. This game is a part of an ongoing series wherein Rudolph and Santa Claus battle it out.
Rudolph Awakes is a 5×3 slot that offers 30 paylines and a maximum jackpot of 50,000x the bet. The minimum bet is $0.30 to play, and the max bet is $90.00. This gives players a wide range of action.
Features and Gameplay of Rudolph Awakens
Players are specifically watching for the Rudolph Wild, which takes up one of the three center reels. It expands to fill the entire column, at which point Rudolph is able to break through the ice with his bat and express his anger.
The other high-paying symbols to be discovered are Santa (who uses his machine gun when he creates a winning payline), penguins, gifts, and the PG-13 version of Mrs. Claus.
When Rudolph appears in enough force, the Rudolph Awakens bonus game begins with 10 free spins. The middle reel wild is sticky until it melts, and wild nudges begin. Players can also trigger extra spins if the “Extra Games” symbols land on the first and fifth reels.
iSoftBet Prepares Raging Reindeer
The soundtrack is a cross between Christmas country and rock music, setting the scene for the reindeer to kick back a few of whatever they drink and hit the town for a wild night.
The graphics in the 6×4 game are very detailed and colorful, giving each character a unique expression.
There had been no release date set for Raging Reindeer, so many assumed that it would release later in November. However, in very recent news, iSoftBet is now offering the game on some of Australia’s most popular online casinos.
Raging Reindeer Basics
With 4,096 ways to win and a max payout of 4,332x the bet, the game is full of excitement. The RTP is set at 95.94%, which is somewhat low, but players can get into the action for as little as $0.20. The max bet is $20.00 per spin.
The main symbol is the reindeer wearing the fake Rudolph-style nose, but the other animals in the game are also interesting. The higher-paying ones include a wolf, coyote, owl, and rabbit – all of whom have clearly been partying in town with the reindeer.
Features and Gameplay of Raging Reindeer
The primary feature in Raging Reindeer is the Jingle Spins Bonus. When the game’s logo appears, so do the free spins, along with a rock-n-roll version of Jingle Bells.
- 3 scatters = 8 free spins
- 4 scatters = 15 free spins
- 5 scatters = 20 free spins
- 6 scatters = 50 free spins
And if the wild is a part of a winning combination during the bonus round, it triggers a multiplier of 2x or 3x. And during those free spins, more scatters can extend those free spins to a maximum of 100.
The game operates as a continuous party. The vast number of paylines makes the game exciting despite the lack of many features.
Where to Play Reindeer Games
Both of these reindeer-themed holiday online slot games are different from usual holiday themes. By giving reindeer unique personalities and atypical situations, casino operators give players a break from overdosing on traditional Rudolph tales.
Realtime Gaming is preparing to launch Rudolph Awakens in the coming weeks, and it will then be available on Fair Go Casino and Uptown Pokies. Planet 7 Casino and Raging Bull Casino are also likely to offer the holiday game.
As mentioned, iSoftBet had kept the launch date of Raging Reindeer a secret but released it exclusively – in pre-release form – to several online casinos popular with Australian players. Joka Room and Pokie Pop! have the game loaded and ready to play.
(Tip: Joka Room and Pokie Pop! are offering 10 free spins on Raging Reindeer for any deposit.)
