Penny players walk away – this What A Hoot slot with its 9 paylines from Microgaming starts at €/£2.25 a spin all the way to €/£45.
What a Hoot mobile slot is two things. Very simple and very pretty. Sure it’s a “video slot”, but in the same way that 5 Reel Drive or Cash Splash are video slots. In as much that when you hit the Wild and the Scatter symbols, you get pretty graphics on the screen flashing before your eyes.
Yeap, you got it – no bonus features, simply scatters and wilds. This isn’t always a bad thing – bear in mind that as a one of the Microgaming slots it looks and plays beautifully on every device possible. This means that when you are on the train, plane or automobile, and you’re not sure how long you’ll be able to play, a simple 5 reel slot could be just the thing. Who wants to miss an important bonus feature in between jumping train platforms?
Because we can’t say that this real money slot is great for beginners; as you can’t control how many lines you bet on this slot, you have to play all 9, the minimum and maximum bet is therefore set quite high for first timers. This means that players with more conservative budgets should probably stay away.
However, if you are brave enough to go for the higher bet, then this little gem is not a bad choice. On the lower end of the volatility scale, it still has a decent 5,000 coins max win and pays out on 5 symbols often enough to give your wallet some love.
No life changing wins here, but you’ll be surprised how winning a couple of thousand during your lunch break can change your whole mood for the day.
Equally, we thought the theme was pretty cute. Who doesn’t want to be a Night Owl and party all night long? If you are a fan of the online version of this slot, unfortunately the great party sounds were not transferred to the mobile version, which loses some of the excitement. Still a hoot though (yes we went there).

Scatters: The fireflies in the jar are the scatter symbol, lighting your way to a few conservative wins when you get three or more anywhere on the screen. Scatter wins are multiplier by the total number of credits staked, so the maximum win (on the max bet) is 250 in cash.
Wilds: The eyes glowing in the dark of the forest is the wild symbol, substituting for all symbols except scatter. This little baby is the one you want to watch out for to complete the 5 symbol wins.
A simple beautiful 9 payline mobile slot, What a Hoot won't keep you entertained for hours unless you like the simpler spin.
That said, for some quick no frills spins, we could think of worst ways to spend our lunch break, especially as the fun colourful graphics look particularly nice on the small smartphone screen.
One for those who like to bet more than £/€2 a spin and play on autopilot.
