In the hit pop song American Pie, Don McLean wrote that the decade of the 1960s changed music and much of the world for ever. There are two fantastic video pokies from Rival Gaming that take you back to that era and give you a taste of the culture. You can play these pokies at Australian online casinos like Joe Fortune and Ignition Casino.
Rock On features caricatures of popular rock icons of the 60s as symbols, including Elvis, George Harrison, Jimmy Hendrix, Paul Stanley and Bret Michaels. The other symbols include guitars, drum set and the well-known peace and rock on hand signs. You should play this game with the audio enabled because the cheering crowd and the music take you to a virtual rock concert. The green guitar is an expanding wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. But it appears on reels 1, 2 and 3 only. The drum set triggers the free spins bonus round when three or more appear anywhere on the reels. 5 free spins are awarded at tripled payouts. Three or more scattered Elvis symbols trigger the Rock On Bonus Feature. You have to catch the musical notes falling down from the top of the screen. The more notes that you catch the bigger will be your bonus. A popular rock song plays in the background during the feature.
Psychedelic Sixties takes a broader cultural perspective. Pastel psychedelic colours light up the background. The symbols on the reels are lava lamp, smiley, cross, tambourine, peace locket and an assortment of male and female hippies. The flower awards the highest line payouts. The heart is a wild symbol that can appear only on the first three reels. The payouts of any winning combinations are multiplied by the number of heart symbols on the reels. Three or more motorcycle symbols trigger 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier. In this feature the hearts become expanding wilds. The bus symbol triggers the bonus feature. In each bonus round, the bus goes s,to a different city. A hippie hitchhiker boards the bus and awards a bonus. If you visit all the cities in a single game then you get tickets for the rock concert where you can win further bonuses. The largest two line payouts are 2000 coins and 1500 coins. The other five symbol payouts are much smaller. Psychedelic Sixties has variance on the higher side.
