About What a Hoot

Microgaming’s What a Hoot video slot machine is of a higher variance than many other games from this software developer. It is a 9-payline game but does not offer the ability to control the number of lines in each bet. This makes the minimum bet required a bit higher than many games, but the payout is proportionally bigger as well, even if wins occur less frequently.


 The What a Hoot game has a dark blue background with glowing eyes peering out at the top of each corner. Different owl icons appear on the game’s 5 reels, and there is also fruit for the owls to eat, and nuts for them as well. The coin values range from $0.25 to $5 and all 9 paylines are fixed.

The fireflies in the jars act as scatter icons, and are responsible for the biggest win in the game, a possible $250 in all. There are wild icons, scatter icons, and “what a hoot” symbols that come into play, too. The wild symbol can substitute for other icons, but not scatter symbols. There are no free spins to win in this slot, and sadly no bonus rounds.

Final Verdict

The incredible graphics of this game are worth the higher wagers. It is a simple game overall, when compared to some other titles from this developer, but the theme and the fun graphics make up for the fewer options. It works well when played on computers; however, the mobile version does not have as many of the background sounds. It is not a game made for beginners or those who desire petite wagers. The fixed 9 lines with each spin gives the game higher stakes, but the maximum win of $250 is a thrilling temptation. The adorable owls are also a great addition. They bring playful fun to the game. Overall, the What a Hoot video slot is a great looking, fun game, and pays out just frequently enough to warrant the high stakes.
