Re-Spins After a Wild symbol appears on the reels and all wins are awarded for that spin, each Wild shifts one place horizontally on the reels and a Re-Spin is awarded.
If a Santa Wild and a Rudolf Wild are in the same position on the reels, the Wilds will lock into that position and merge together. At the end of the current spin and after any potential bet line wins are awarded, Free Spins are activated.
