This is an excellent video slot for all the newbies out there, but before you hit the reels you need to set your betting range.Clicking on "Select lines" button sets the number of lines you wish to play. With "+/-" you choose to increase or decrease the coin size. The "Bet Max" button helps you set the maximum bet and start the spin automatically. Minimum coin size is 0.25 and maximum is 5.00. Both the minimum and maximum amount of coins per line is 1.By clicking on "spin "you start the reels.

In the What a Hoot video slot you have regular and expert betting panel which can be changed by a simple click on the button. In the Expert panel you have features such as "Auto-play" which allows you to spin the reels for a certain amount of times without interruption. With "5X" and "10X" buttons you choose to auto play for 5 or 10 rounds and with the "auto-play" button you can set how many times you wish reels to spin automatically. 

Given the fact that this slot game lacks in special features and bonus games, the closest you will get to a special feature are wild symbols and scatters. The highest value symbol in this video slot game is a blue owl and can pay-out up to 5.000 coins when you hit five of them on any active pay-line.

When it comes to wilds,much like other wild symbols, it acts as a substitution for any other symbols except for the scatter. Wild symbol in this game can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. However, it does not create its own winning combos when multiple symbols appear in a line on an enabled pay-line. This slot's wild is represented as a Tree which, once you hit it and it ends up forming a winning combo, becomes animated.

When it comes to Scatter symbol, it is represented in the form of the fireflies escaping from an opened jar. This symbol completes a winning scatter combo when three or more of these appear anywhere on the reels. Wins are calculated by multiplying the total bet by 2x, 10x or 50x. 

Game Play:

Bet +/-: Change the total bet.
Regular/Expert panel: Switch between the two playing panels.
Select Lines: Change the number of lines you wish to bet.
Bet Max: Set the highest bet possible.
Spin: Start the game.
Auto Play: Turn the reel without interruption for a desired number of times.

This game popped up in the "recommended" section as I was closing Vinyl Countdown and I was looking for another new game to try so I figured I'd give it a shot. I immediately noticed this to be another nine line game and couldn't believe I had found yet another old school Microgaming slot that I had yet to try out!

It didn't take long for me to notice that the amounts I was winning were identical to the last game I was playing, and checking the paytable it was obvious that this was in fact just a clone of Vinyl Countdown which must be the reason the two games were suggested as being similar by the casino software. I felt really quite disappointed, it seems like every game I try these days from Microgaming is just a clone or copy of another machine I've already played but alas, What A Hoot is still a fun game when judged on it's own merits.

One thing I will say about this particular title is that it was much more kind to me than it's twins Vinyl Countdown and Lucky Twins - I had a 200x stake hit within my first 100 spins, which always helps you to grow a preference for one clone machine over another ;)
The graphics don't appeal to me very much, this is a game that could certainly benefit from a HD overhaul however I can't imagine Microgaming going to the trouble of working on such a task for an all but forgotten game. Anybody who does enjoy this game could also just choose to play the more recent "Lucky Twins" slot too, which has an identical paytable matched with a new symbol set and updated user interface, bringing the basic mechanics of this game bang up to date.

If you like nine line games and are happy with a maximum jackpot of 1,000x your stake then you might get a kick out of this game. I respect it as a decent effort for it's time, though I'm shocked to learn that even two decades ago Microgaming was already copying their games relentlessly, rebranding them and re-releasing instead of putting out brand new machines. I honestly thought it was a recent phenomenon as well!

What a Hoot seems to be an old video slot game powered by Microgaming software. This is an animal themed slot with 5 reels and only 9 pay lines. I found this game by chance. I made a deposit of 20 euros and I thought to myself I will pick the one that it looks appealing to me. Probably the large symbols and the serene blue colour intrigued me. I cannot say the same for the sound effects. They were rather annoying so I had to lower the sound on my computer while I played this game.

Once I started playing the slot I was amazed of the wins that were coming on regular basis. It did not take me awhile to increase my balance. I had a really long session because the slot was more than generous to me. All the time I was getting five of a kind wins. The most that I have got during the base game was 30 x bet. I did not hit a colossal win, but still those small wins helped my balance which was slowly but surely increasing. I got 50 x bet only for 5 scatters. That happened only once, but I liked that there is a scatter payout. Even though they do not trigger some mini game they still have a function in this slot. And another good thing is that they appear very often on the reels.

The game itself is nothing special. It is very simple slot with no bonus round or free spins. I played the game on min bet though but at the end of my session I made a withdrawal of 200 euros. I have to say that the money were great and I had a really great gaming experience at the same time. I would warmly recommend this game to anyone. I know I had a great time while I played this slot.

What a Hoot it is an old microgaming video slot which is really boring and not interesting, i tried this game only once at 32red casino when just opening all games to find something interesting for myself, and i am from beginning saying that better even not try this game, it is boring.

What a Hoot it is 9 lines game, and at least here we can bet with low amount of 0.09$. Wilds here presented on all reels, but another one reason to blame this video slot is that wilds did not have payout itself, or did not have multiplier, so generally they useless, it is just too boring to see when wilds just substitute, this means that game created without any inspiration i think. Best paying 5 of a kind will pay a bit more than 500 x total bet, but i think it is too low for such slot that did not have any feature or multiplier.

Scatters here appear on all reels, but payout for 5 scatters is just 50 x total bet, seriously? On video slot without any feature or payout for 5 wilds you can give us only 50 x total bet for 5 scatters, oh god why? I tried this game only once at 32red casino, and i can be sure that i will never play it again, i think i can nominate this video slot to the worst microgaming game ever. I will not play it again like i already said, and i recommend you did not even download it, it did not worth your time or did not worth to even be downloaded, boring, surprisingly very boring.

Low variance 9 lines game, without any feature, bonus game, or anything extra, with no payouts for wilds, with low payout for 5 scatters and almost for all other symbols. I think this is enough to not play this game.
