Players who are thinking of Christmas can wager on two excellent Christmas themed Realtime Gaming online slots available at All Star Slots online casino. The first is Rudolph's Revenge in which Rudolph tired of slaving it out for Santa plots a trick. The elves are gagged and Santa is under threat from a time bomb ticking away. The red nosed Rudolf stands guard smoking a cigar and wielding a baseball bat. But the free spins bonus round is full of goodies with a number of symbols becoming wilds and the payouts being doubled. Santa is not one to take this humiliation lightly. In Santa Strikes Back he turns the tables on Rudolph. This time it is Rudolph who is trussed and Santa is brandishing a sword. But in the scatter symbols a battle is on. In one scatter symbol Santa is victorious and in the other Rudolph is victorious.
