Fox hunting is a very popular activity in the UK and it’s been a long tradition practised by rich people with large domains. But what if the characters are reversed and the foxes are really those rich hunters with the luxurious life. This is the main idea behind Tally Ho, a video slot released by Microgaming in January 2004.
How to Play
Although it’s been a long time since the game has been developed and released, it can still be found on plenty of online casinos in the UK, most of them offering you the possibility to try the game for free in the demo mode, without having to gamble real cash or to register with them. The symbols you will stumble across when spinning the reels are related to the theme. Therefore you will find some British food and dessert specialities like sandwiches, strawberries, cheesecake, cheese, scones or the pot of tea. You will also find the coat of arms symbol, a classic yellow car, a mansion and the male and female fox. The special symbols and features you will need to consider are:
- The wild symbol represented by the horse capable of replacing any missing symbol (except scatter) to create a winning combination. The combination including this symbol will have the prize doubled;
- The hunting horn is the scatter symbol and if landed at least 3 times will trigger 10 free spins with a 4x multiplier. During this feature you can also get more free spins if you land scatter symbols again;
- The Gamble Feature allows you to pick the colour or the suit of the next drawn card which can double or quadruple your payout. You can do this maximum 5 times during this round.
How to Win
Tally Ho has 5 reels, 3 rows, 9 pay lines and 95.87% RTP. Bets are low starting from 1p and can go as high as 50p. The jackpot can reach the value of 6000 coins, which is the full row of wild symbols. To get the most out of it you will need to bet max on all the pay lines.
This video slot may not promise huge payouts, but it can guarantee tons of fun, action and excitement. It’s the kind of games that newbies and the more cautious players would enjoy.
