Here’s a game that hosts more than a large swig of southern comfort and a theme with a bit more personality than a single item-turned-centerpiece to the stylized design: “Moonshine” slots creates a stereotyped atmosphere, but one nonetheless, of prohibition-era hillbillies that seem to embody simple times and dim wits (or else playful drunkenness).
Such a marketing angle would be most effective to deep south casinos full of nothing but such a demographic of thoughtless gamblers and quixotic American Dreamers fueled by one too many bouts of liver-poisoning.
Nonetheless, the charm is well-received with the aid of whisky-and-banjo-wielding caricatures including a sheriff, granny, and a complete redneck family (not to mention some props and items commonly found in their rural kitchen’s food pantry, such as sardines and grits).
The game is a 5-reel, 25-payline progression-type slot that rewards up to 8,000 coins ($50,000) and can accommodate those who have anywhere from a penny to a dollar in their boot heels, so to speak.
The Grandma represents the wild symbol in this game and is the key to the greatest gold rush possible (getting 3 in a row lands the maximum jackpot), while the Sheriff is the relative scatter symbol (which yields the opportunity for more multipliers). Bonus Bottles also provide free spins (i.e. further opportunities to fill that space between your mattress and box spring).
This quirky virtual slot machine sure hurts like a porcupine cushion when it’s not fruitful, but it certainly is loaded with enough animated alcohol to help you forget.
