The Wombat says: Ho Ho Tower slot is the second Hong Kong slot from ELK Studios: a Christmas version of the high-rise cityscape themed game Hong Kong Tower.
This 5 reel and 3 row game was launched in November 2017 and is a Medium to High variance game with 99 Ways to win.
The RTP is 96.4% and it has a hit frequency of 22.6% on average. Features include a Bonus Game (2 bonus symbols), with Bonus wheel, Multipliers and mystery symbols. The theme is Hong Kong of course! A cityscape full of neon and Yin Yang action.
This is a slot that comes with jaw-droppingly gorgeous graphics and the kind of seriously slick user interface this Wombat has come to expect from ELK Studios. . This game kicks off the festive feeling with a welcome carol from a host of characters from ELK Studios and that’s before the “reely” good fun has even begun! Or you could always head for the Foxin’ Wins a Very Foxin’ Christmas slot if you like.
Let’s take a look at the Tower…
Look and Feel – Ho Ho
This game is a knock-out when it comes to its design. The supersonically good graphics and crisp images are just the beginning as the background to the reels is a detailed skyscraper building and each corner of the building is beset with festive fairy lights. Think of the Legend of Shangri-La slot and then add neon, city noises and the buzz of Hong Kong!
The reels are full screen bringing a clear and luxurious feeling to game play and while we you spin, snow falls gently, creating a laid-back Yuletide setting for the game. While those dreamy reels roll you can also enjoy an immersive soundtrack of Hong Kong’s atmos, along with the gentle hum of Christmas carols. Awesome!
Ho Ho Tower Slot Game Play
Ho Ho Tower slot is a 3 row, 5 reel and 99 “Ways to Win” game that can be played across all devices so that you can have fun on the go.
Christmas vibes have been liberally sprinkled over the symbols on your reels which are synonymous with the Far East (but it looks warmer there than it does on the Wolf Cub slot machine or on Secrets of Christmas).
The high value icons are a festive and sparkly number 7, a pair of beautiful red Lotus flowers, a decorated Bonsai tree and last but not least, some striped seasonal candy.
The game’s Mystery Symbol is the Ho Ho Tower icon. In the base game the Mystery symbol brings a seriously fun surprise by changing, as if by magic, into another icon once the reels are have stopped spinning. This adds another layer of festiveness to this classy game and makes you more winning combos.
The key to making the most of Ho Ho Tower is to land the all-important Bonus symbols, the red and gold, and the blue and gold Yin Yang icons, which will unlock Ho Ho Tower’s most exciting feature, the Wheel of the Sky bonus mode. 3x or more of the red Bonus symbols, or 1x or more of the blue ones and you’ll trigger this feature.
There are three wheels of fortune on top of the skyscraper which make up this bonus, and here you can spin to win extra prizes. Progress through the first and second to the third (and by far the most lucrative wheel), where there is a whopping x500 multiplier up for grabs!
This is a game which has something to offer slot fans who like to play with a game plan. The Ho Ho Tower slot has a Betting Strategies function which allows the player to choose which type of game to play. Optimizer, Leveller, Booster and Jumper strategies are all up for grabs in this high stakes game.
Ho Ho Tower is a glossy, good looking fast-paced slot that is perfect if you like your play up-tempo with some occasional ‘seat of your pants’ high stakes. This Wombat was charmed by the Christmas theme and hooked by the tension. This is definitely one to add to your Christmas list!
Wombat score: 4/5
