When you hear the word “hillbillies”, there’s probably a very specific image that comes to mind, right? Well, in this slot game, RTG have provided exactly the stereotype you are imiagining. Hillbillies doesn’t have the greatest graphics in the world, but it will take you right into the thick of the action down at the ranch with larger than life characters and crazy goings on.
This means that alongside the basic playing card additions, you’ll see symbols like the jug of home-brewed moonshine, the hillbilly house, a symbol of a pig taking a bath in a tub with plenty of bubbles, as well as another of the family dog. You’ll definitely delight in the humorous side of this slot.
Accessing the Hillbillies slot reveals a standard layout featuring five reels and three rows in total. The developer has also taken the decision to add a set of 20 pay lines into the game, although if you would like fewer in operation you can reduce them with the relevant up and down buttons. You’re also able to alter your wager from the same place, between a range of 1p and 10p per active payline. So, if you have all 20 in operation, you’ll be playing a maximum bet of £2 per spin.
At the very top of the reels in the centre, you’ll see the “Random Jackpot” total. This amount continues to increase whenever someone places a bet on Hillbillies, and this amount is totally randomly paid out. This means that you don’t need to be playing for a certain amount of time or placing a specific bet amount to be in with a chance of winning it. You could receive it at the end of any standard spin.
There are three hillbillies alive in this game, and they all act as both wild symbols and scatters at the same time. The grandpa, the mother, and the son are all present and they can provide a pay-out from wherever they show up on the slot’s reels, while at the same time they will substitute for all other symbols in the game.
Hillbilly symbols appear on reels one, three, and five. If they do substitute in a win, they will also provide a pay-out multiplier of up to 9x, depending upon how many scatters are in view.
Freespins – You’ve got the potential to activate eight free spins when two or more of the hillbilly symbols come into view across the reels. During this round, all prizes are doubled with the exception of the Hillbilly Bonus reward. The free spins round is able to be re-triggered as well, and any Hillbillies appearing on reels one, three, and five will award you with a bonus prize of 2, 2 or 5, respectively. This prize is multiplied by the triggering free spins bet.
Hillbillies is one of those games that you really need to play and experience fully before casting any judgement on it. Sure, the graphics aren’t the best in the world, but with the inclusion of a progressive jackpot and a free spins round with bonus perks, it really does offer up an entertaining option from RTG with real winning potential.
