The hippie culture from the 1960s promoting peace and love has since gone out of style. While the hippie culture has widely been condemned in the past, it did have its pros. It promoted a culture of sitting back, relaxing and enjoying life.
Skillzzgaming decided it was time to bring back some of this hippie culture and has come out with a new slot offering titled “Hippie Days“. This game invites you to join a pair of hippies and drop out from the rat race and take things easy.
While the theme is weird, Skillzzgaming has done a great job in bringing this laid-back-life theme to life.
Players are taken to a green meadow where two hippies are meditating. In the background, you will be able to see their Volkswagen minivan. The game’s music is a throwback to the flower days and gives you the hippie vibe.
The game’s grid is right in the middle of things and has five reels. Now, this is where the difference comes in. This game is a Match-3 game. If you are familiar with the likes of Candy Crush, then you have an idea of how this works. Players manipulate symbols so that there is a cluster of three or more symbols in one area.
The interesting thing about the match is that players will see their combinations disappear and new symbols come from above. Players can potentially set-up multiple cascades as new combinations form from the new symbols.
While the game is not exactly a typical slot game, there are several aspects of this game that should be familiar to slot game players. For one, there are the symbol meters. Whenever symbols are scored, players will add to the meters. When the meters fill up, players will be able to get a reward. This can range from half their stake to ten times their wager. The lucky players who fill up two symbol meters at the same time will combine the wins from each meter.
There are two special meters: the Guitar and the Rainbow. These are two symbols that players will want to aim for. This is because they provide players with either free spins or multipliers. Multipliers are added to the stake for each win. Free spins allow players to make moves with no wager.
Overall, this game is pretty interesting as it mixes the Match-3 mechanics with video slots in a unique way and does a good job with it. Players will have an interesting time when they give Hippie Days a few spins.
