While neither classic 3-reel games nor jungle themed stories are all that unusual for the genre, a mix between these two, which offers modern graphics as well, is not as easy to find. Kongo Bongo is coming from Tom Horn Gaming, and it’s just the type of modern game that we expect to see these days, the notable part being that it’s classic game that gets this nice design.

The civilization of the Inca is once again the main focus of a slot machine, one that comes from Tom Horn Gaming in this case. They managed to craft a good game here, graphics wise at least, and it offers a low volatility experience which should make it a fun choice for someone to spend time with.

Frozen Queen will have some awesome features and mechanics to give us, while graphics and theme wise we’re traveling to a colder part of our planet, the kind of spot where polar bears are actually a thing. So are ice queens though, so clearly this isn’t just a nature themed game, that Tom Horn Gaming is giving us.

Tom Horn Gaming is a developer which is quite active in game development, offering solutions to operators worldwide, both for the online and for the land-based market. They’re spread across three different countries, with technical operations and their HQ being based in Malta, while the software development and the sales team are located in Slovakia. Ukraine is another country where they have employees and offices.

The company has made a name for itself thanks to the innovation that they’ve shown over the last couple of years, with some very interesting and unique themes being used in the games they’ve released so far.

The company has two gaming licenses at the moment, both from highly respected countries. Both UK and Malta are considered to be among the top gaming jurisdictions, known for the protection they give players. You can see the same attention to player protection and to fairness in the choice of independent testing labs that Tom Horn Gaming is using, to insure that their games are random and fair. GLI Uk and iTech Labs are the two auditors which they’ve been working with, and both are highly respected in this field.

The list of partners with which Tom Horn Gaming is working at the moment include Pinnacle, Digitain, EveryMatrix, Solid Gaming, 777.be, Vivo Gaming, TopSport, iSoftBet and NetBet, plus quite a few others.

As for the solutions that they offer their partners and operators, they have their own remote game server and it can be used by platform providers and operators alike, in order to integrate all the Tom Horn games. These games have been translated into 22 languages and they support all currencies, even crypto ones.

They are considered an omni-channel supplier, by which I mean that they provide content for all platforms, from online, to mobile and land-based machines. Their games can be made available in retail locations and betting shops.

History

Not much is known about the early years of Tom Horn Enterpise, the name which this developer used for a very long time. They seem to have released their first games sometime around 2005, with 7 Mirrors and Panda’s Run being available since then. Their next releases have dates which start from 2012 going forward.

They changed their name, from Tom Horn Enterprise to Tom Horn Gaming in January 2016. They’ve continued to release casino games under the new name, and to expand to both the land-based and the online markets with them.

Tom Horn Casino Games

The four big categories in which Tom Horn has games are Video Slots, Table Games, Video Poker and Others. This is part of their strategy to offer operators a variety of options, so that their players have everything they could desire in one place. They still have a bit of work to do in these additional categories though, and the Table Games section only has four titles at the moment (American and European Roulette, Baccarat and Three Card Poker). With about a dozen titles, the Video Poker offer looks a lot better. As for Other Games, that’s where you get Bingo, Keno and Scratch Cards.

Getting back to Video Slots, that’s the category that I found most interesting. Tom Horn likes to innovate, and before we get to its game play, I’m sure that the themes they chose will get your attention first. Some of the games which stand out include Wild Weather, Red Lights (Amsterdam’s Red Light District), Monster Madness, Don Juan’s Peppers and Thrones of Persia (a destination that we haven’t seen in a lot of slot machines).

Graphics

The design is one of the strong points of the slot machines I’ve seen Tom Horn release, particularly recently. The ones I’ve seen them launch in 2018 have mostly been a lot of fun, featuring great attention to detail and skill. The same can’t be said about some of their older releases, which might pay well, but they’re not very attractive. Monkey 27 would be in that category for me, along with Sizable Win and several others.

Features

Once again, the collection is big enough and it covers several years, so there is variety feature wise. The newer titles look better, and include more than the regular features. Free spins, expanding wilds, sticky wilds, special stacked symbols and many more are available, in one slot or another. They don’t seem to re-use their features that much, so the experience is varied.

Payouts

You might get 1,000 coins from one game, or 75,000 coins from the next one, so payout wise they have something for everyone. It’s the RTP that interests me more, and Tom Horn offers some excellent games if this is the area that you’re looking at first.

I’ve counted close to 20 slot machines with the Return to Player set to 97% or higher, and plenty more are going to start from 96% and go up from there. Sky Barons is the only one with a 98.2% RTP.
