Ho Ho Ho Slots

Ho-Ho-HoHo Ho Ho is your typical Christmas themed slot machine, a game that in this case is offered by Microgaming. The title contains the famous words that Santa would use sometimes, announcing himself to those present. It’s a very holiday inspired design, with all sorts of goodies among the symbols used in it, but with graphics that feel somewhat dated. Despite the design, I had fun playing it, and thanks to a certain food inspired angle that it takes, you’re going to be famished by the time you’re done with it.

A typical holiday themed slot machine, Ho Ho Ho has 5 reels, 15 lines and lots of features for you to take advantage of, including wild symbols, free spins, multipliers and scatters. The biggest rewards advertised inside go up to $75,000.

Features of Ho Ho Ho

The features of Ho Ho Ho include the wild symbol, a scatter, free spins and multipliers, all of them being regular options for a modern title.

Santa himself is used for the image of the wild symbol. The wild is capable of appearing on all five reels, and from there it will try to create its own combinations, or to assist others in doing the same. Its substitution ability allows it to participate in the creation of new combinations, since it can take the place of another symbol needed in the exact position where it landed. Multiple wilds on the same line and going from left to right will award their own payouts, which go up to 15,000x.

The Gift is the scatter of the slot, a symbol that is known for the ability it has to appear in locations on the reels which are not on the same payline. The prizes start at 1x for just two scatters, but reach 60x when all five are present.

Free Games Feature

In addition to the prizes, the scattered Gifts will also give you free spins. 20 rounds are won, when 3 to 5 Gifts are on the reels, with all the wins being doubled with the help of a x2 multiplier. Retriggering free spins is possible in this game.

Betting options and jackpots

You can bet between $0.01 and $75 during each spin of Ho Ho Ho. The bets are placed on up to 15 lines, using 1 to 10 coins, while denominations will vary between $0.01 and $0.50. You can end up with $5 line bets, or $75 total bets.

As for the jackpot, it’s the kind of payout that will make you really enjoy your holidays, offering 15,000 times what the line bet was, so up to $75,000 (150,000 coins).

Design and symbols

The theme is Christmas inspired, and the entire screen is occupied by the reels and their symbols. There are only Christmas themed symbols, no playing cards, which is something I always enjoy seeing. There are Christmas trees, cookies, milk, gingerbread men, stuffed birds and all sorts of other symbols, some of them with delicious foods that you get stuffed with each year, others with things you might see at Christmas.

Symbols: Santa (15,000x, wild), Gift (60x total bet, scatter), Reindeer (500x), Sleigh (400x), Christmas Tree (200x), Turkey (100x), Pudding (90x), Eggnog (80x), Gingerbread Man (60x) and Candy Cane (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s worth at least a try, as it rewards its players with very generous prizes, it has all the right features, and its design does manage to bring the Christmas atmosphere to your screen.

You will find Ho Ho Ho at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
