Tally Ho Slots

Tally-HoTally Ho is a World War II themed slot from RTG, a game where the British fighter planes are at the center of the action. Royal Air Force pilots went through some heroic battles during those years, fighting Nazi airplanes and keeping their bombers away from British skies. This game celebrates their heroism with a slot that is dedicated solely to them and its name is the war cry that they used when German planes were spotted.

There are 20 paylines placed on the game’s 5 reels. Among the camouflaged playing cards, you will notice that there are some good features to take advantage of, including the scatter or the wild symbol, plus the free games and multipliers that they give you. Both the game’s own $50,000 jackpot and the random progressive prize that is offered contribute to how attractive this slot is for players.

Features of Tally Ho

The slot’s features are not what you would consider special. The developer seems to have went through the usual motions with it, but there isn’t a lot of innovation in the game. Despite that, I think you will agree that they’re good features and the game’s potential increased tremendously thanks to them.

The Pilot, a man with a leather cap and protection glasses on his forehead, acts as a wild symbol. It will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. From that position, the Pilot can substitute for any other symbol that forms regular combinations, so it can’t help you with the scatter.

Speaking of the scatter, the Roundel symbol is the one used for it, using a red dot in the middle, surrounded by circles colored in white, blue and yellow. Since this symbol is considered a scatter, its presence in multiple locations is enough to get you a prize and a round of free games. Prizes start at the amount that you’ve wagered during that round, and then will keep going higher with each additional scatter, up to 200 times the bet for five symbols.


Free Games Feature

While the scatter’s prizes need 2+ symbols to be awarded, the free games need 3+ Roundels on the reels. If that happens, your reward is a feature with 25 free spins and with 3x multipliers attached to all of them. You can also retrigger the free games, as long as you have 3+ scatter symbols in one of those rounds.

Betting options and jackpots

Tally Ho’s betting system uses the standard approach, using one coin per active line. There is also the option of changing the value of the coin, a decision that can have huge effects on the overall bet size (up to $100 possible). The coin’s range is $0.01 to $5 and up to 20 of them can be selected for a wager.

The payout is quite generous for RTG, going as high as $50,000 (10,000 coins). The second best payout would probably be the random progressive jackpot, but it’s usually not a huge one so the game might have better options for you even for the second place.

Design and symbols

The design seems to be classic military, using airplane or military influence whenever possible. An image of a squadron of World War II airplanes is used as the background, while the paytable takes the form of the airplane cockpit. The playing cards are unfortunately present as well, using a camouflage pattern on them and taking over way too many spots on the reels.

Symbols: Pilot (wild), Roundel (scatter, 200x the bet), Airplane (10,000x), Female Officer (2,500x), Map (1,000x), Medal (500x), Ace (250x), King (250x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), Ten (100x), Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Those that want to honor the memory of these great pilots, or who simply want to play a nice war themed slot, will find Tally Ho to be a good choice. Anyone looking for great features or above average payouts will probably not find that here, but the game makes a good effort.

The Tally Ho slot machine is offered through the RTG platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
