The wombat says: Ever wondered what owls do for fun?  Other than turning their head around 360° and munching small rodents that is?

Well, wonder no more Wombat fans! Because those slot geniuses at Games Global (ex Microgaming) who also made the Pinocchio’s Fortune slot have made a whole game out of just that; yes a bunch of owls on the booze at a big old party.

We think it must have been a slow slot day at Microgaming when they gave the What a Hoot slot theme the ‘OK’, but still, we love an animal-themed slot so were more than happy to try it out. A quick note: this game has no Free Spins or bonuses, so it’s all simple game-play. Too-wit, too-woo!

Game Play

This game has five reels, three rows and nine pay-lines- but it’s not as volatile as Microgaming’s Lady in Red Slot if you bet max, strangely enough.

Ripe acorns, chunky horse chestnuts, a range of berries, a juicy peach and what appears to be a load of nuts and seeds, make up the lower-value symbols on your reels. We think they must be the owls’ party food – which makes a change from the canapes that Mrs. Wombat serves up, I can tell you that.

The four feathery owls are your higher-paying icons and these include the white owl with the party hat who looks like he’s been at the gin, a zany-looking blue owl with a party blower, a yellow owl swotting up on gags from a joke book, and the brown owl who is holding a boozy cocktail protectively under his wing.

The Wild symbol in What A Hoot slot is the tree that has several pairs of owl big eyes staring out of it, while the Scatter symbol is an open jar of something that says ‘Scatter’ on it.

what a hoot slot scatter symbolLand three, four or five Scatters anywhere on the reels and you’ll receive a nice little payout to the tune of 112.5x your stake (for five anywhere across the reels).

As there is no Free Spins round in offer here, the Scatter isn’t used to trigger a bonus game like it does in most other slots. Scatter wins are added to your pay-line wins.

Interestingly, this slot will please the high rollers among you who like games like the Break da Bank Again Megaspin slot, as the bets start at a chunky 2.25 a spin and go all the way up to a massive 45.00!

Play What A Hoot Slot on Mobile

Like most Microgaming releases, this game is optimised and designed for all devices which means you can play this slot wherever you are and whenever you fancy it.

The graphics look great on your smartphone or tablet, but sadly the owl party soundtrack has not been added to the mobile version – which makes it lose a bit of the fun atmosphere.


Well, there are no free spins or mini-games to keep us entertained which is a real shame, and while that’s not everyone’s cup of tea, the What a Hoot slot will appeal to those of you who prefer something a bit simpler to spend their coins on.

However, we are fans of the theme overall, I mean, who doesn’t want to know what owls do for fun?! Join the party and make up your own mind!
