Ho Ho Tower is a 5 reel, 99 ways to win slot from ELK Studios. Playable from 10p to £50 a spin on all devices including iOS and Android, it’s the Christmas edition of another ELK Studios game – Hong Kong Tower. It comes with a Wheels of the Sky Bonus feature where you win cash prizes as well as mystery symbols which transform to give you bigger wins.
Visually, Ho Ho Tower takes place in Hong Kong and is all about Christmas – set against a city skyline, there are laser beams and fireworks that light up the buildings. Symbols include Christmas bonsai trees, lotuses, Christmas sweets and a festive gold 7.
Look out for the icy Ho Ho Tower logo symbol as this is the mystery symbol – when it appears on the reels, you’ll trigger the Mystery feature. Basically, the mystery symbol changes into another randomly chosen symbol gives you extra chances to form winning combinations. The mystery symbol can also reveal the blue Ying Yang bonus symbol which can trigger the Wheels of the Sky Bonus feature with 2 extra lives.
The Wheels of the Sky Bonus feature can also be access when you get 3 or more red Ying Yang bonus symbols or 1 or more blue Mystery Ying Yang bonus symbols. If you get more than 3 red ones, you will get 2 additional lives too.
You will then see 3 wheels of the sky which adorn the Ho Ho Tower roof – the first wheel spins and gives you a cash bonus. You can also hit the Level up symbol which moves you to the next wheel for even bigger wins – in the Christmas edition, there’s an extra levelling up chance on the 1st wheel (compared to Hong Kong Tower).
The aim is to reach the final (3rd wheel) where naturally you can win bigger – all before your lives run out. There’s a cool 500 times your total stake to prize on offer as well as the other amounts from the 1st and 2nd wheels.
Ho Ho Tower is a medium to high variance slot whilst Hong Kong Tower was a highly volatile offering – the maximum win potential per spin is lower as you can win 1,530 times your stake as opposed to 3,016 times your stake. Personally speaking, I prefer Hong Kong Tower due to the higher win potential but Ho Ho Tower offers great wins and is perfect to play around the festive period. I also recommend you play ELK Studios’ Wild Toro which won the 2017 Game of the Year at the EGR Operator Awards.
