The Groovy Sixties

The 1960s was a time of free love, hippies, and the Beatles. I know this because of the many nostalgic documentaries I’ve seen. Spin your through this groovy 5 reel online casino game and match up knee-high boots, psychedelic Morris minors, and lava lamps to earn the baby boomers some significant pension money and cash rewards.

About The Game

Think back 50 years or so, when slots were physical and phones were something you had to pop round somebody else’s house to use. Or, if that’s too far for your own physical memory to go, instead envisage the sociocultural explosion of freedom and free love that your parents or grandparents still eulogise about! The Groovy 60’s are back, this time as an online slot powered by NetEnt, who have given us 5 reels and 40 paylines with which to discover the era for ourselves.

From as little as £0.01 (which, in the mid-60’s, would be about £0.14) to £0.50 (a more robust £6.77), we can spin the reels of sentimental 1960’s fare, and take home some 21st Century winnings. There are four card symbols in the game, J through A, and six standard symbols; a trio of Lava Lamps, some sultry Knee-High Boots, a Film Projector, a Reel-to-Reel music box, an old Television, and a groovy, flower-power VW Beetle. They are joined on the reels by a hypnotising 60’s Wild symbol, and a Scatter symbol featuring a rather happy-dazed hippy-chick, who has evidently been enjoying the era in some free-love-for-all way.

The Wild symbols will substitute for any other symbol than the Scatter, and will regularly rack up in lines of Stacked Wilds, especially during the Free Spins feature. Three of the Scatter symbol will trigger the Free (love for all) Spins, and land an immediate 2x win, along with a 2x multiplier on all subsequent wins during the feature – even if it is reactivated.

Alongside this straightforward gameplay, there is a cool, catchy 1960’s audio laced with the feel of an upbeat The Doors vibe, and sound effects to match. Interestingly, the spin of the reels themselves has that classic, languorous feel of a physical slot machine – and perhaps the laid-back feeling of the era itself. This does show the level of detail NetEnt have put into the game, in order to create its theme, and make the game play at a nice, leisurely pace. This means it’s a nice title to spin, simply for some 60’s inspired, super-chilled fun (man!).

The Verdict

NetEnt have put a lot of thought into what would otherwise have been a rather simplistic online slot game. The audio and SFX are perfect for the theme and the visuals have that vibrant freedom that we imagine when we try to think about (or hazily recall) the era. Dream Jackpot enjoyed playing this homage to the past, and give it a groovy 9/10.
