Forget about the “Empire Strikes Back,” Santa is hell bent on revenge against his defiant elves and Rudolph, in “Santa Strikes Back!”
Brought to you by Real Time Gaming, “Santa Strikes Back!,” is a 5 reel video slot with 25 pay lines full of vengeful, Christmas spirit. “Santa Strikes Back!” is the sequel to the hit slot, “Rudolph’s Revenge.” In this title, the north pole is the setting of a huge civil war between Santa and Rudolph. All the elves and the other reindeer have lined up between either Santa and Rudolph. All the game symbols are Christmas related.
The wild symbol in this game is represented by Santa Claus wielding a sword. An interesting note about the icons in this game is, that animations and sound effects accompany them when they land on the reels. The Santa wild will replace all the other symbols with the exception of the scatter symbol. The Santa wild is also instrumental in winning the progressive jackpot. Landing five on the reels will bring home the progressive jackpot.
The scatter symbols are represented by both Santa and Rudolph. What’s interesting about these scatters is if they both land, they will battle over the reels. The one that reigns victorious, will help determine the winning multiplier amount. The more of the victorious Santa’s that land, the greater the winning multiplier will become. The winning multiplier ranges anywhere from 2 times to 500 times. Landing three of this Santa scatter, will start the Santa Strikes Back bonus round.
In the Santa Strikes Back bonus, players start off with 7 free spins, where both Santa and Rudolph have candy canes. When a candy cane icon lands on the reels, it will light one of the stars atop the Christmas tree. If you manage to light all 5, then this bonus round plays all over with a fresh seven free spins along with an increased winning multiplier.
If the Rudolph scatter proves to be the victor, then the winning multiplier ranges from 2 times to 100 times. If you get three of this scatter icon to land on the reel, then players will play the Rudolph’s Revenge bonus round, where you will also start off with 7 free spins. Wins during this bonus will be doubled. This bonus round can be re-played if you land an additional 3 Rudolph icons on the pay lines.
If you are ready to do battle in the north pole, then all it takes is a penny to get into the mayhem in “Santa Strikes Back!.” The other icons in this title include Mrs. Claus, elves, reindeer, wrapped gifts, and the playing card numbers, nines, tens, jacks, kings, queens and aces.
