Tally Ho is a slots game that takes place in a world where the Foxes live in the mansions, drive the flash cars, eat in fine restaurants and chase the humans round the countryside. This game by Microgaming is real fun, and players can have a most enjoyable time with this quirky slots game. The master and mistress of the mansion is a smart, well dressed fox couple. The gentleman fox smokes a pipe and with his lady appears regularly in the reels.
Microgaming has surpassed themselves with this slot game, and all the symbols and reel icons are designed especially for this game. The symbols are bugles and horses, Lord and Lady Fox, mansions and a sleek yellow luxury car, coats of arms, teapots, strawberries, cucumber sandwiches and scones. In fact the player will find all the trimmings of a high society life.
There are five reels in this game, and the sounds of the countryside including birdsong can be heard in the background, while the reels spin to the sound of horses galloping along during the hunt. With the five reels, there are only nine win lines, which makes Tally Ho a fairly simple game to play. The top prize, however is a huge 60,000 coins, which can afford an impressive payout. When this is combined with the maximum possible bet, there can be a large prize indeed. This game is therefore popular with everyone who likes to play for big wins.
Wide Array of Special Features
There may be only nine pay lines in Tally Ho, but there is a wide array of special features to be won. The Stallion is the wild and these icons are wild for all the other icons apart from the scatter, which is the hunter’s bugle. Any win attributed to a wild symbol will also be doubled. Two or more Scatter symbols appearing on the reels will win the player an instant cash prize. If three or more appear the free spin bonus round is activated. The free spins bonus game is very important to the player of Tally Ho, as this round offers not only the free spins, but also quadruples the payout values of the pay line wins. In the event of another set of three or more Bugle Icons appearing, another set of ten free spins will be made available.
The wild symbol, the Stallion, can also be of immense value to the player if it appears. The Wild is active in both the base and free spins games. This means the Stallion symbol can take the place of a regular icon and help the player to achieve another winning combination. When the player has accumulated a set of two, three, four or five Stallion symbols, the reward paid out can be as much as 60,000 coins.
The Bonus Gamble Feature
Another possibility for a big reward in the game of Tally Ho, is the Bonus Gamble. At the bottom of the screen is a button which when pressed, will allow the player to wager all his wins on a card guessing game. If the player can predict the colour or the suit of the next playing card to appear, the amount of his bet will be doubled. The new winnings can be collected, and the player can then return to the main game. If, however, he guesses incorrectly, Tally Ho will be ended.
