Hee Haw Slot Machines
Bally Gaming’s Hee Haw Slot Machines are an attempt to cash in on the success of pop culture themed slot machines. Their competitor, IGT, has had more success than anyone else, but Bally’s TV show and movie themed slots are excellent as well. The Hee Haw slots game is based on the classic TV show Hee Haw.
Hee Haw was a country music and sketch show that made a huge impression. Hee Haw was one of the most popular shows on television–a hit in every major market, including New York City and LA, Hee Haw’s blend of good old American country music and clean humor appealed to lots of people.
Other “genre” live shows that were around in this same time period were shows like Soul Train (which appealed largely to black households) or the Lawrence Welk show, which appealed mostly to older audiences. Hee Haw came out during the golden age of niche TV, and has been in syndication in some form in at least one TV market for more than 35 years.
The spirit of Hee Haw lives on in Bally’s Hee Haw slot machine, which are always popular among the older crowd at slot machine banks all over the USA.
Hee Haw Slots Specifications
Hee Haw slot machines are five reel slots with twenty paylines. You can bet as much as ten credits per payline, for a total max bet of 200 credits. The maximum possible jackpot is a massive 500,000 credits, and that jackpot is available with just one credit per twenty paylines. Since Hee Haw is a penny slot, you can bet anywhere from twenty cents to $20.
There is another version of Hee Haw slot machine games that are five reel slots with thirty paylines. A max bet of 300 credits is paired with a top award of 2,500 credits. Like the game with fewer pay lines, denominations for bets range from just one cent to ten cents.
The reel symbols for Hee Haw slot machine reels are the TV characters Buck Owens, Roy, the Hee Haw donkey, as well as the free games chicken, a barn, and a bundle of ears of corn. The Hee Haw symbol itself is wild and doubles all paylines except for the free game and corn symbols. The corn symbols trigger the scatter bonus when three corn symbols appear anywhere on the spinning reels.
Hee Haw Slots Free Game Bonus Round
Speaking of the bonus game, the Hee Haw Slots free game bonus round starts when the free games chicken symbol pops up anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5. During your Hee Haw slot machine bonus round, the screen changes to depict the inside of a barn where five chickens sit on their eggs. Next to each of these symbols are your choices for your free spin bonus. You can choose from any of the following options:
- 30 spins at 1X
- 15 spins at 2X
- 10 spins at 3X
- 5 spins at 6X
- 3 spins at 10X
Depending how you want to play, you make a selection and the reels spin allowing you to rack up your bonuses and multipliers.
Hee Haw slots are popular in the casino, in part because the slot machine playing population trends older than the general population. Even when Hee Haw was on TV it was popular with an older audience. The same reason why
Wheel of Fortune slot machines and Jeopardy slot machines do so well–old people watch TV shows like Wheel of Fortune and Hee Haw, and are drawn to slot machines that are familiar.
Hee Haw Progressive Slots
Bally’s Hee Haw slot machines are also available in a progressive format, though some gambling jurisdictions disallow progressive gaming and the game exists as non progressive flat tops. There are five progressive award levels on Hee Haw slot machines. Each level is based on the number of ears of corn symbols appear on the right reels–either 5,6,7,8 or 9 ears of corn will appear anywhere on the reels allowing you to win the progressive jackpot that matches those symbols.
