It seems a bit unfair that Santa only gives out presents at Christmas when you’re so good all year round, so we’re delighted to report that Ho Ho Ho is here to correct that problem!
Microgaming has fallen back on one of the old favourites in this slot, and there’s something about the Christmas season that can’t fail to get you in the mood for some slots action, but where will this slot rank in the hallowed halls of festive themed gaming? Let’s take a look in our Ho Ho Ho slot game review!
This slot has a nostalgic theme which maybe something to do with it being from 2008, but while it’s not quite up there with modern slots in terms of looks it’s at least bright, clean and colourful. There’s no room for any background distractions and the reels take up the whole screen, so if you’re fed up being distracted by animated stuff going on behind your game in other slots, Ho Ho Ho is for you. The symbols are very nicely drawn too, all unique, depicting a range of heartwarming Christmas scenes like gingerbread men and Christmas trees festooned with decorations and gifts.
As the overall look in this slot game is pretty simple, it should be of no surprise that the mechanics are pretty simple as well. There are five reels and three rows, while there are also fifteen pay lines to play on, and really the only slightly out of the ordinary element is the betting limit which sits nice and high at £/€/$150 per spin. There is also a wild in the form of Santa himself, though his only role is to substitute for other symbols to complete combos. The prizes themselves are pretty good, with the highest paying reindeer symbols giving you 500x your stake for five, while there is also a bonus game to help you top up your prize fund. The RTP of 96.5% is nice and high, so you should be confident enough to bet nice and high too!
The free spins bonus in the Ho Ho Ho slot game is surprisingly generous, granting you 20 free spins if you manage to land the minimum of three present scatters on the reels. That’s not all, though, because your wins are automatically doubled as well. It gets even better if you manage to land four or five presents, because this will grant you an amazing 20x or an epic 60x your win with each spin! That’s a massive bonus to walk away with on top of the generous prizes!
We were sceptical when we first saw Ho Ho Ho because it looks a bit dated, but our scepticism melted away when we saw the amazing prizes and bonuses on offer! The graphics actually look fine, they’re very well drawn and colourful, but the bonuses are even better with a fantastic 60x multiplier possible in the free spins!
