What A Hoot Slot Game Review

General Info

What A Hoot slot game was devised by the people at Microgaming. It was released to the market way back in June 2010 so it is one of their older creations on the casino scene..

A trait of the older Microgaming slot games is the simplicity of the interface and that very much rings true with the What A Hoot game. What A Hoot can be played across all desktop, mobile and tablet devices.


When we saw the title of this game we knew there would be a bird involved but the intrigue came over which birds the slot would focus on. The answer is owls. This game is all about owls and having a party and it works quite well! What A Hoot comes with five reels and nine paylines.

The icons are all to do with the theme of the game which is always welcomed. The lower paying icons include fruit and nuts, chestnuts, sesame seeds and berries while the better paying ones are four different owls – the white one which has a party hat, the blue one with a hotter, the yellow one which possesses a joke book and the brown one that is accompanied by a drink. The highest paying icon on the reels is the What A Hoot logo. The special icons are the Wild which is a tree which is full of pairs of eyes while the Scatter icon is the open jar.

Bonus Feature

When you see that there is a Wild icon and a Scatter in this game you could be forgiven for thinking that the game is full of bonuses and features. That is not the case however. Indeed there isn’t a single bonus feature so all we are left with is what is on the reels, which is very disappointing.

That means the highest paying icon – the What A Hoot logo is as good as we can do here. If you get five of them on a payline then you will be collecting 5,000x your stake so we can’t complain at that, but getting to that stage is quite difficult.


The RTP rating for What A Hoot slot game is a very good one at 96.94%. This is well above the average and very much on the side of the player.

CasinoNZ Verdict

What A Hoot promised to be a very good game with a different theme to what we are used to but when you get playing it, you can be quickly disappointed it has to be said. This is very much a simple and classic machine. There isn’t anything wrong with that if there is a feature or a bonus to compliment it and keep the entertainment coming but that isn’t the case with this game. The reels fill the majority of the screen too so there isn’t even any striking graphics to get to grips with. If you like a simple slot or are new to slot games then you might like this but if not you may well prefer to look elsewhere.
