Ho Ho Tower – Ho So Familiar
When we first clicked open this slot to find a Christmassy skyscraper, our first thought was Yippee Ki Yay, a Die Hard theme. Unfortunately, what we found was a repackaged version of another ELK Studios’ slot, Hong Kong Tower. The developer’s website states that “the theme seems familiar from Hong Kong Tower, but don’t make the mistake, this is a new game.” This lie will earn them some coal this Christmas, because this is the same game.

An Overview of the Rules and Features
Although ELK Studios claims that this slot is a new game, we found that not to be the case. We’ll admit that some of the symbols are different, elements have become peppermint patties, and a Bonsai tree has become a Bonsai tree with ornaments on it, but apart from that, the game is basically the same. Just like in the other skyscraper themed slot, there is a mystery symbol that turns into other symbols once the reels have stopped, a yin-yang bonus symbol, and the Wheels of the Sky bonus. The game has five reels, three rows, and 99 ways to win. The highest paying symbol is the seven, which pays up to 1,000 coins when five are spun, and the candies pay the lowest amount. To activate the bonus game, you must spin at least three bonus symbols. Four will get you an extra life, and five will award two extra lives. Once the bonus is activated, you are skyrocketed to the top of the towers, where you find three Wheel of Fortune like wheels that have different payouts on them. Beginning at the lowest paying wheel, players spin for a chance to win. If you land on the level up icon, you will move to the next highest paying wheel, if you land on an empty space, you will lose a life. If you run out of lives, the bonus game ends. If you can spin a bonus symbol, you will gain an extra life.
