At first glance, this innovative game seems to be a strange combination of futuristic and snow-covered settings. However, after you get used to it the beautiful contrast between sleek design and cold weather works great! The theme of Ho Ho Tower looks great with a laser show as you ascend the Hong Kong skyline during a snowstorm. The symbols are all festive themed with candy canes and humbugs as well as the higher value symbols of a golden lucky seven and even a bonsai Christmas tree. Even the music sets the Christmas mood with festive songs playing throughout.
The Ho Ho Tower slot is full of festive treats that can make your Christmas no matter the time of the year. To begin with there are 99 ways to win available and although the maximum bet is not huge at £/€/$50.00, the wild substituted for a mystery symbol adds excitement and opportunity to the wins. The generous RTP (Return to Player) available at 96.4% supports this claim. To begin with all of the symbols look the same however once they have been spun the transform into what could be the symbol you need to win.
What’s more is that the mystery symbol can transform into a Yin Yang scatter that will become what you need to play bonuses with maximum lives. The game being set in Hong Kong makes sense as the bet assistant allows you to set an automatic strategy to your bets a lot like ones used on financial markets. There are setting available to recommend your next bets, the optimizer, leveller, jumper and booster setting automatically look at past results and can offer insight for those who do not like risks.
As mentioned, the bonus round can be activated with 3+ Yin Yang scatters, ideally 5 that will let you play the bonus with max lives. Once you have landed the required number the game will send you up into the sky in a brilliant animation, so that you can spin the bonus reels above the clouds.
The bonus round works in a wheel of fortune type setting that can land great cash prizes for the player, or a wheel upgrade, or a blank. The blank spaces will take a life until the player has none left, this is why it is bets to have as many lives as possible when spinning to get the most chances of landing a winning symbol.
