NetEnt is back with the classic and retro vibe as they bring Groovy Sixties. NetEnt designs a game along with the classic-themed series, Funky Seventies and Super Eighties. Groovy Sixties features some dandy Wilds and Scatters. Also move to the beat of the music with some big wins at hand. But what exactly do you remember from the 60’s? Let this video slot take you back in time and reminisce your favorite 60’s memoirs. Tune in to some funky sixties music now and play Groovy Sixties!
The Groovy Sixties is a NetEnt-powered video slot with 4 rows, 5 reels, 40 win lines, and a theoretic payout of 96.5%. The theme revolves around the 1960s where knee-high boots, lava lamps, and the Volkswagen Beetle have taken over the world. Groovy Sixties will take you back in time with their groovy visuals and amazing features such as Stacked Wilds and Scatters. Three or more Scatters activate 20 Free Spins and multipliers that can grant you with a maximum win of €200,000.
Groovy Sixties’ visuals will take you back in time with its overall visually stimulating 60’s-themed with popular 60’s symbols such as lava lamp, VHS, VW Bugs, and more. The video slot will be laid out with vivid hues of orange as you spin those reels to your heart’s content. However, the spinning animation takes some time. The animations aren’t that outstanding but still fun when you hit big wins. But thankfully, the music is well-composed and sets the appropriate mood for the 30 free spins gameplay. Overall, the visuals are just average but still appealing enough.
The Groovy Sixties video slot symbols revolve around 60’s-themed items such as knee-high boots, lava lamp, black and white TV, VW Bugs, reel to reel tape recorder, film projector. There are also the conventional low-valued symbols A, J, K, and Q with A as the highest paying and J as the lowest.
The Scatter symbol is a groovy 60’s woman with brown hair and blue spiral backdrop. This Scatter rewards your total bet a 2x multiplier when 3 of these appear on the reels. In addition, 3 Scatters activate 5 Free Spins that pay wins by 2. In Free Spins, 3 Scatter symbols pay total bet of 2x and also rewards 5 additional Free Spins.
The Wild symbol is a literal 60’s Wild that substitutes for all symbols except Scatter symbols. Multiple Wilds on each reel line up to create Stacked Wild which means the 60’s Wild symbol can appear stacked on top of each other. This tends to form more winning combinations than a single wild.
Groovy Sixties has 40 win lines and 5 bet levels. You can play with a minimum coin value of 0.01 on bet level 1 or a maximum of 0.50 on bet level 5. But this depends on your preference because there are 6 coin values to choose from: 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, and 0.50. Thus, if you set the bet lines to 40 and the bet level and coin value to the lowest, the minimum bet you can make is 0.40 Euros. If you set the bet level and coin value to the highest, the maximum bet is at 100 Euros.
The pay table is designed in a blue backdrop and yellow font color with the word Paytable at the bottom left part of the screen. The pay table will first display the functions and values of Wild and Scatter symbols as well as the 40 winning combinations. Only the highest win per bet way is paid and bet line wins pay if in succession from left to right.
These are the main buttons found in Groovy Sixties:
The Groovy Sixties video slot has the usual game settings found in NetEnt slots that may be adjusted. The wrench button gives you Sound Effects and Background Music that you can turn on or off. There is also the speaker icon for the volume, the question mark to trigger Help option, and the AUTO to activate autoplay.
Like any other NetEnt offering, Groovy Sixties can be played in desktops or laptops. It is compatible with operating systems like Windows, Mac, Linux and can also be played on mobiles and tablets.
Overall, the video slot is average. There’s nothing exemplary, yet knowing NetEnt, they never disappoint especially in developing good quality games. Hence, Groovy Sixties still has some good qualities to offer. This may not be the best offering by NetEnt in terms of visuals, features, and payout but if you are a fan of classic-themed video slots or the type to try anything, then Groovy Sixties is a good option.
