Easy to Understand (10)
The pay table and rules can be accessed through the Help button in the bottom toolbar. These are clearly explained and are easy to understand.
Graphics & Sounds (10)
The highlight of the slot game is the animation in the scatter symbol that is accompanied by appropriate audio. The graphics and the other animations are also very good. The win sounds and the background music in the free spins features complete the great audio visual experience.
Theme and Concept (10)
The slot has an unusual Christmas theme of a conflict between Santa and Rudolph and this may not be liked by some while others may find it a welcome change. The theme is executed perfectly with symbols that tell a story in themselves. The animations and the background graphics also complement the theme. The Jingle Bells tune in the free spins round is the icing on the cake.
Game Features (9)
Santa Strikes Back has some excellent features. The Santa Strikes Back free spins round is innovative and once triggered is easily reset. Therefore it leads to high payouts. The scatter symbols have also been innovatively used and are a sort of mini bonus game in themselves. There are a couple of minor drawbacks. Both the bonus features are free spins features and this becomes repetitive. The wild symbol does not act as a multiplier.
Betting Options (9)
Santa Strikes Back allows players to manipulate only one betting option and that is the coin size. This is a drawback. However the coin size range is widespread and the total bet per spin varies from 0.25 to 125.00 which make up for the lack of options. Low rollers have greater flexibility because all coin sizes from 0.01 to 0.10 are covered.
The slot has a progressive jackpot and the fixed jackpots pay out reasonably as well.
