NetEnt – Santa vs Rudolf

Casino content developer NetEnt has also embraced the Christmas spirit, with fun and festive cheer released in the shape of Santa vs Rudolf.

Set deep in the snow dusted North Pole, the 5×3, 20 fixed-payline slot invites players to help Santa find his magic hat, hidden by the mischievous Rudolf, in time to deliver presents across the world.

Santa vs Rudolf features Santa’s gifts and Rudolf spins bonus features and is “packed with re-spins, free spins wild substitutions and walking wilds”.

With candy cane, sleigh bell and reindeer symbols decorating the reels, the title offers opportunities and prizes with a 96.35 per cent return-to-player.

“Santa vs Rudolf is following on from the huge success and laughs of Jingle Spin and a merry addition to our seasonal portfolio that perfectly captures the joy and cheer of this holiday season. Santa vs Rudolf continues the humorous trend with goofy antics from our two favourite holiday heroes battling it out for seasonal supremacy.  This narrative will be hard to resist even amongst the scrooges in our player base! Happy Holidays.” – Bryan Upton, NetEnt director of games.

Play’n Go – Chronos Joker

In the new 3-reel slot in players must use the powers of the Chronos Joker, the game’s main character, to manipulate time, in a variety of entertaining features.

Using the concept of travelling through time, all of the games features can increase or decrease the size of a player’s wins as they progress, making it a literal race against time to get the most out of wins.

“Chronos Joker is an exciting game, with several creative and unique features to enhance the player experience. Players are going to love the unique nature of this game and the excitement of finding their favourite feature, and that’s what it’s about for us, providing a high level of entertainment that players will love.” – Johan Törnqvist, CEO of Play’n Go.

Yggdrasil – Avatars: Gateway Guardians

Yggdrasil is to send players on an intergalactic journey via its extra-terrestrial title, Avatars: Gateway Guardians.

Designed exclusively for LeoVegas, the gateway has been barred off to earthlings with players challenged to set the Avatars free with out of this world cash rewards if they succeed.

Four guardians stand before the Avatar kingdom, bringing wins every time a player lands on a hotspot area, triggering the ancient multiplier wheel. The wheel will spin a random amount of times, each time adding up the multiplier to the previous one. The luckiest players can get x20 on x20 multipliers taking win potential to new levels.

“Here at LeoVegas we constantly strive to earn ourselves the coveted title of king of casino. Introducing bespoke games to our existing portfolio gives us the opportunity to offer and promote unique content to our esteemed players and it was with this in mind that Avatars: Gateway Guardians came to be.

“The fourth instalment of LeoVegas’ collaborative journey with Yggdrasil and the fifth for the Leo Vegas Originals series, this game positions itself as one of the most unique looking slot games on the market.

“We would like to thank Yggdrasil for allowing us to spread our creative wings on this project while continually providing us with invaluable expertise at each step of the way. Today we are proud to present Avatars: Gateway Guardians and we hope our players will enjoy the game play experience.” – James Ford, head of casino at LeoVegas
