Get crazy with Our 80’s Themed Online Pokies Game
The decade of the 1980’s was by far one of the most zaniest of the 20th century and its influence continues to be felt today well into the 21st century. It was a decade of unique yet questionable fashion trends, new technology, iconic movies and music that still maintains a large following even today.
Questionable to say the least is what comes to mind upon perusing the fashion of the 1980’s. Many a woman had the then popular TV show Dynasty and Madonna to blame. Those breaking through the glass ceiling took their pointers from Dynasty and started to sport tops with shoulder pads – a trend that continued into the early 90’s. The youth, having their fashion dictated to them by MTV, were more than happy to parade around in short skirts worn over leggings along with crucifix jewellery and fishnet gloves all due to Madonna’s release of ‘Like a Virgin’.
Upon harking back to the technology of that era, the list is long and memorable. The commodore 64 was the leading home computer system – it even went head to head with Atari to dominate the video game industry. Land based casinos were still rife with their coin operated slots that would only much later be rivalled by their online cousins such as jackpotcity online casinos. VHS outranked and eventually destroyed Beta-max as the most popular medium on which to watch home movies. The CD player came to replace the vinyl player, and the audio cassette got even more play time thanks to the Walkman. Blaupunkt, which no one remembers today, was a household name and the mobile telephone which was a rich man’s commodity, was nowhere near fitting into anyone’s pocket.
The 1980’s gave us some of the best films of all time; films with endearing characters and mass appeal, not to mention million dollar box office success. Everyone watched in total disbelief as Darth Vader revealed himself as Luke’s father in the Empire Strikes back. Michael Jackson declared ET the Extra Terrestrial his favourite movie of all time. Michael J Fox solidified his success with the Back to the Future trilogy. Audiences were thrilled by the adventures of Indiana Jones sporting that leather jacket and trademark fedora. Subsequently George Lucas garnered even more bang for his buck when he introduced Indi to the world of online slot machines similar, in nature to the type of games one could find and play at JackpotCity pokies. Finally, just before 1990 rolled round, Batman found his way to the big screen in Tim Burton’s 1989 gothic rendition.
Music materialized in its strangest form ever as many artists succumbed to the synthesizer player and gave birth to Electro pop. Bands like Depeche Mode, The Human League and Soft cell lead the way with sounds similar to those found on TV games like the Mario Bros. New Romantics like Duran Duran were responsible for the second British invasion (after the Beatles) and for establishing the template on which many music videos would come to rely.
The 80’s is about nostalgia and staying power. Today a lot of its trends are being replicated in fashion and music and even online casino games have taken advantage of its legacy.
