iSoftBet is gradually gaining ground in the online slots world. Raging Reindeer is an exciting slot with a lovely (and lively) Christmas theme
If you, as a game provider, want to be taken more seriously, you need to at least be able to bring casino players into the Christmas atmosphere.
iSoftBet didn’t have a Christmas slot, until now. Apart from the Christmas theme, Raging Reindeer is a pretty good slot. As were other slots from iSoftBet, such as Lost Boys Loot (released in October 2019) or Ghosts ‘n’ Gold (released in September 2019).
Raging Reindeer stands out, thanks to the free spins, which we explain further below. And of course the maximum win of 4,332 x the bet helps.
The slot does not score the highest points when it comes to complexity or the number of different features.
But, the slot is well balanced, and, quite frankly, heaps of fun.
Gameplay and features of the Raging Reindeer slot
Raging Reindeer has 6-reel with 4 rows of symbols. It is a win all ways slot: you get winning combinations if you have adjacent symbol combinations (at least one symbol per consecutive reel, from left to right).
As there are 6 reels with 4 row, you get 4,096 (4x4x4x4x4x4) ways to win.
The most lucrative symbol is the Rudolph Symbol: 6-of-a-kind yields 150 coins or 7.5x the bet.
The other premium symbols are the four other party animals, and these symbols yield wins of 5x to 6.25x the bet (for 6-of-a-kind).
The card symbols are the lower symbols but are still pretty lucrative as the payout is still between 2.5x and 3.75x the bet.
You may think that these payouts are not so high, but remember that you have 4,096 ways to win. If you have more symbols on a reel (starting from the first reel) it can go pretty fast. You could easily have 10+ winning combinations in one spin.
The minimum bet is $€0.20, and the maximum bet is $€20.
What are the theoretical RTP, the variance and the maximum win of the Raging Reindeer Slot?
Raging Reindeer has an RTP of 95.94%, which is just about fair. It is a bit lower than the average RTP of online slots, but not dramatically worse.
The maximum win is 4,332 x the bet, which is based on 1 billion of simulations.
The variance of this slot is medium. We expect that the top prizes are typically in the range of 250x to 500x the bet. Only in exceptional circumstances, does this slot payout more.
You can expect lots of prizes in the range of 25x to 100x the bet. The base game (due to the 4,096 ways to win) has lots of substantial prizes. The result is that there is not enough money left for the real massive wins in the free spins.
The free spins frequency is pretty high as well – ideal for the entertainment, but not so much for the epic wins.
Bonus Free Spins – Jingle Spins
If you manage to spin at least 3 Raging Reindeer symbols, you win free spins. As we are playing a Christmas slot, the free spins are given a Christmassy type of name: Jingle Spins.
- 8 Jingle Spins if you manage to get 3 Reindeer Symbols
- 15 Jingle Spins for 4 symbols
- 20 Jingle Spins for 5 symbols and
- a spectacular 50 spins for 6 Reindeer symbols.
You can retrigger the free spins if you manage to get at least 2 Reindeer symbols.
When you play the Jingle Spins, and you get a wild symbol, it becomes a multiplier of either x2, as the wild symbol counts for two or even three separate wilds, on the reels where they appear.
Then the Rudolph symbols: these do not need to be adjacent (connecting) for these to be a winning combination. The same goes for wilds that can be used to form winning combinations with Rudolph symbols.
Your winnings can start to skyrocket, given the fact that there are 4,096 ways to win. If you have 2 or 3 wilds in combination with one or more Rudolphs, you are going to win big.
Our verdict of the Raging Reindeer slot
Even though the features seem simple, they provide more than sufficient substance. The Jingle Spins feature wilds with x 2 or x 3 multipliers and the premium symbol pay as winning combinations, even if they are not on consecutive reels.
In combination with the 4,096 ways to win mechanism, it all leads to an exciting and potentially very lucrative free spins bonus.
When it comes to the animations, the slot is a bit simplistic, despite the cartoonish graphics.
The RTP should have been at least a half percentage point higher, for it to be a scorching hot slot. Now it’s, just a great slot.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
