Raging Reindeer Slot Review

Raging Reindeer is a 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win Christmas-themed slot from iSoftBet. You won’t find the usual chocolate box version of Christmas so beloved of slot developers here. This is the like the morning after a particularly heavy Christmas party. The highlight is the bonus round that awards up to 100 free spins where symbols don’t need to be on adjoining reels to create a winner. Look out for wilds that turn into 2x and 3x wilds. Play on all devices from between 20p and £20 per spin.

Not so festive design

The theme in the Raging Reindeer slot might be festive but the character symbols look like Santa’s staff who’ve enjoyed a night on the sauce. With a bar and (north) pole dancing club in the background, you’ll see A to 9 royals plus an assortment of cartoon animals which look decidedly worse for wear.

The Raging Reindeer is the best symbol. It pays 1. 3,75, 5, 7.5 or 10 times your stake if you land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 on adjoining reels, starting from reel 1. There’s also a wild that can land anywhere apart from reel 1.

Up to 100 Jingle Spins

The Jingle Spins feature is triggered by landing 3 or more of the Raging Reindeer logo on the same spin. Hit 3, 4, 5 or 6 of them and you’ll receive 8, 10, 15 or 50 free spins. During these Jingle spins, symbols don’t need to land on adjoining reels to create a winner. For example, matching symbols on reels 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 would result in a 5 of a kind win. Retriggers are possible too meaning up to 100 free spins in total.

Magical wilds

Any wilds that land during the Jingle Spins feature also developer some magical properties. If a wild forms part of a winning combination, it will act as if it’s the equivalent or 2 or 3 individual wilds.

Anarchic Christmas action

If you’re looking for the slot equivalent of a movie like Bad Santa, then you’ll find it in Raging Reindeer. The cartoon design is nicely done, backed by a catchy guitar-heavy backing track. The range of extras isn’t massive but the Jingle Spins can be well worth hitting – you can win up to 4,332 times your stake in total.

If you want a slot that offers a break from festive schmaltz, then Raging Reindeer could be what you’re looking for. I would also try NetEnt’s Santa vs Rudolf which has a similar feel.
