ELK Studios Ho Ho Tower Slot Review and Free Play

Ho Ho Tower: Demo

If you’re looking for a festive slot that doesn’t overdose on schmaltz then ELK Studios might have the answer. Ho Ho Tower is a 5 reel, 99 ways to win video slot that is a sequel to Hong Kong Tower. Once again, giant spinning wheels are central to the action. Play this volatile game on all devices from between 10p and £50 per spin.

Hong Kong’s skyscraper-filled skyline forms the backdrop to the action in Ho Ho Tower. There’s a festive feel to the symbols which include candy canes and other sweet treats, poinsettia plants, lucky 7s and bonsai-style Christmas trees.

The main action comes from the Wheels of the Sky Bonus feature which is triggered by landing 3 or more of the yin and yang scatter. These activate the giant bonus wheels that are perched at the top of the tower. Spin the first wheel. Wherever the pointer lands is the prize awarded. Hope to see the pointer land on a yin and yang symbol as this awards a level up.

You’ll then progress to next wheel where the process is repeated. The goal is to try and make it to the third wheel where the biggest awards of 500 times your total bet are on offer. You’re guaranteed a win when you trigger the feature.

Keep a special eye out for the Ho Ho Tower logo symbol in the base game – when this lands, it will transform into another symbol and a new payout calculation is made with the new symbol in place. Hope to see it morph into the yin and yang symbol as this automatically triggers the Wheels of the Sky Bonus feature, complete with 2 added lives.

There aren’t any free spins on offer here. Ho Ho Tower remains a volatile game though with wins of up to 1,530 times your total bet on each spin. There will be times when Santa will seemingly forget to deliver you any goodies. Get lucky with the wheel spins and he can deliver sackfuls of coins though.

Developers usually fill their Christmassy games with an overdose of saccharine visuals – ELK Studios has managed to avoid that. A tower in Hong Kong wouldn’t immediately jump into most heads when asked to think of Christmas. Then again, Die Hard is hardly traditional festive fare and it’s gone on to become a yuletide staple. Unusual it may be for a Christmas video slot but Ho Ho Tower can deliver plenty of cheer if luck is with you.
