Hillbillies is yet another slot offering from Real Time Gaming, but this one does promise that things will be wacky and a whole lot of fun. The game is a prequel to another version by RTG, so what stands out from this, the original?
Overview of Hillbillies
The first thing to note is that Hillbillies has a 5×3 reel filled with cool graphics. It also offers you 20 different paylines to choose from, which may be slightly below the average number, but it still provides you with ample opportunities to win. For the symbols, look out for the likes of the Grandpa, the woman, and the man, mixed in with their dog popping up from time to time as well.
How to Play Hillbillies
Playing this game is very straightforward. Obviously, you need to start things off by selecting the size of the coin you wish to bet with. This is changed with ease by clicking on the up or down arrow. Once you are happy with this, you can then select the number of lines you want to bring into play and, once again, this is achieved via the up and down arrows. After these two areas have been set, it’s then time to sit back, hit spin, and see what happens.
Bonus Features for Hillbillies
The wild symbol in this game is represented by the Hillbillies themselves. Land the grandpa or woman and receive a 2x multiplier bonus while the man lands a 5x bonus. Also, if you get 2 or more of them on the reels, and this includes mixing different ones, then you get the chance to have 8 free spins. These free spins can be re-triggered if you land those Hillbillies again, so there’s real potential for this thing to just keep on going.
With those free spins, any wins that occur during them will be doubled with the potential for this to be as high as 20x your initial bet. It’s worth noting that there’s also a progressive jackpot that can be triggered after any spin, so this alone could result in a pretty substantial win.
Betting and Payouts for Hillbillies
Hillbillies has a simple coin range available with it starting at 0.01 and going up to 5. This does mean you have the possibility of playing all 20 paylines for a total of $0.2 or, alternatively, the maximum bet would be $100. The payouts do vary quite considerably, but it does require multipliers with wilds to hit the big time. When you do, it’s possible to get up to 5000 coins for landing 5 bloodhounds, while other symbols do drop quite considerably to 4000 coins or less.
Hillbillies is certainly a smooth slot game, and the characters that appear in it are lots of fun. There’s nothing too different about the game itself, but at least the theme makes things better than the gameplay would suggest. With such a low minimum bet, even covering all paylines, it should at least be capable of letting you see what it’s like to play the full game without breaking the bank.
