Wrap up warm for this frosty design

Finding Rudolph as a wild icon is hardly a surprise, landing on the middle three game reels. Reels two and four include the chance of a nudge element. This means that if the tall Rudolph symbol partly appears on one of those reels, it might be nudged into position to display the reindeer at full height on that reel.

There are no bonus features in this game

Don't worry about that though, as there are still plenty of details to share with you.

Can you unlock some free spins?

The trick for doing this is to find Rudolph in every position on the middle reel of the game. This will freeze those wilds where they landed for 10 free games. You can also expect to get frozen wilds whenever they land on the second and fourth reels.

Be wary though because the game also includes the appearance of an elf. It seems this is the only character that can free Rudolph from his frozen position. This would obviously reduce the number of wilds you'd have in play for your free spins.

One other good thing to note is that the free spins include a special icon that says EXTRA GAMES. Landing one of these on reels one and five at the same time would trigger a further three free games to add to however many you've got left.

RTP info might come from the casino

Realtime Gaming does not release return to player information for its games. That's because we believe they have several settings for the casinos to choose from. It also means you need to check before you play to see what the value might be.
