Tally Ho is the cry most associated with fox hunting, which is a somewhat unusual, even controversial topic for an online slot to tackle.
However, Microgaming's fantastic mobile slot Tally Ho takes this topic and gives it a twist; for it is the foxed that live in unbridled luxury as Mr and Mrs Fox are the Lord and Lady of the Manor!
Indeed, other than the title, there is little in this slot to associate it with this most polarised of sports. Instead, the vast majority symbols on the reels evoke more a sense of living the high life and luxury, with perhaps only the hunting horn scatter being the link with the title.
One of the most pleasing things about Tally Ho is that this is a 5x3 reel game that offers up to nine non-fixed paylines on each spin. The good news for slot aficionados is that the game engine itself is based on the hugely popular and successful engine that powered the Thunderstruck slot game and as such, the rewards can be plentiful for a lucky player.
The graphics are cartoon style as you would expect and offer a range of items from cheese and biscuits, to scones and jam, cheesecake, a bowl of strawberries and cream to cucumber sandwiches, with the higher status symbols of cars, a mansion plus the lord and lady fox of the manor all contributing to higher value wins.
Tally Ho is a mobile slot that also features a decent number of top features, including the ever-popular Wild symbol and Scatter symbols.
The Wild symbol is the Wild Horse and this substitutes for any symbol in the game, bar Scatter symbols, in order to complete a winning payline. When a Wild symbol is used to complete a win, the symbol automatically doubles the value of the win for increased value for players.
In addition landing five wilds across a winning payline will land you the game jackpot of 6,000 coins, while landing four of them on a payline will see you earn a 1,000 coin payout, which is the second largest payline win available.
The other key feature in the game is the in game Scatter symbol, which is the easily recognisable hunting horn.
The first thing to note is that 2 or more Scatters across the reel triggers a Scatter win, which can be worth as much as 500 coins multiplied by the number of coins staked. In addition to this cash prize, if you land three or more scatters across the reels on any spin, you will then enter the free spins round.
Here you will receive 10 free spins and the best news for mobile players is that you can re-trigger these free spins by landing three or more scatters again in the free spin round. As your free spins progress all your winnings in the free spins section are automatically quadrupled, to ensure that you get as big a payout as possible.
One of the best features about Tally Ho is that mobile players can really decide exactly how much they want to spend per spin. You can play from as little as 0.01 per spin for a single coin of the lowest denomination on a single payline, or you can wager up to 90 on every spin for the highest denomination coin, with the highest number of coins across all nine paylines.
With suitably gentrified sound to accompany the ostentatious symbols on the reels, Tally Ho is a hugely enjoyable slot that is easy to play and offers a great variety in cost meaning it is suitable for all players of all bankroll levels.
