Ho Ho Ho Slots

Ho Ho Ho… it's the call of Santa, of course, celebrating the festive season by bringing toys and gifts to all the world's children. That's quite a task, so we decided to settle in for something simpler… the chance to give you a review of the slot game called Ho Ho Ho. Let's see if this might turn into a festive favorite.

Which game studio created this one?

It comes from Microgaming, and is one of their much earlier slots, so that's reflected in its appearance.

It does still come with a demo though

Yes, it does, and you can try that to see if this is a bit old for your liking or whether it has reached classic territory.

You can figure out this festive theme

We're sure the title alone is enough for you to work out we have a Christmas slot game to play here.

The design supports that theme too

Look out for all the tasty treats you might see over the festive period, including turkey, Christmas pudding, candy canes, and egg nog. Look out too for reindeer, Santa's sleigh, and some gingerbread men.

How to play the Ho Ho Ho online slot game

If you're expecting a five-reel, three-row game, you're spot on with that element. You won't see any background here, as the reels occupy most of the screen aside from the controls. There is no progressive jackpot to go for either.

The game has a wild, and if you thought it might be Santa himself, you were spot on there. You can score some prizes from Santa alone if he appears enough times on a paid line, and he'll sub for other icons too apart from the scatter. This one is a gift wrapped in red paper with a gold bow.

An unusual quantity of lines to play on

Well, perhaps not too unusual, but you get 15 lines to play on this time, so fewer than we expected, certainly.

Is it an affordable festive game to try?

Yes, as the smallest coin is the smallest one of all… a cent. Even the largest coin size is only five cents, so there are some appealing bets here for those with a smaller budget to work with this season.

Paytable information helps you understand the game

It also reveals all the potential icons you might see as you play the slot. Ho Ho Ho contains all the classic festive symbols for the Christmas holiday, with some of them based on tasty foods.

Is there a bonus round here?

No, Ho Ho Ho doesn't offer a bonus on another screen.

Free spins are a real gift in this slot

Yes, that means you can find three or more gift scatters to unlock the round. You'll receive a generous 20 free spins for three or more scatters.

There are a couple of neat elements rolled into this part of the game. Firstly, the prizes are all worth double their usual amounts. Secondly, finding three more scatters will give you another set of free games to play.

Do we have an idea of the potential RTP for the game?

It looks as if the rating is around 95% for this one.

Did we like the Ho Ho Ho slot game?

Let's be honest here - it is very basic and that's down to its age. It's fine to play, but with lots of other far more modern Christmas slots to try, we think this is a one and done slot. It's worthy of a score of around 6.5 out of 10.

Check out the paytable to see the prizes

Some symbols are worth far more than others, of course. You can see the values of each one by reading through the paytable before you begin.

Demo action in Ho Ho Ho slots

If you find the game and you want to try the demo first, make sure you are indeed in practice mode.

Switch to real play if you're a member of the casino

When you find this game at an online casino, you'll need to become a member if you're thinking about moving on to the real game.

Mobile gaming doesn't look likely

The age of the game means it is far less likely to appear on mobile devices or at mobile casinos.
