Everybody knows that Oktoberfest means beer! Amaya has done a great job with this slot, and it is not only fun, it also has great bonus features and payouts.
For those of you that are not yet as excited as we are about this online slot, Oktoberfest is a 16 day beer festival hosted in Munich annually, and has grown to become a world phenomenon with over 6 million enthusiasts attending each year.
The online slot scene has quite a few slots that feature the beer theme, but the Oktoberfest slot form Amaya is the first slot of its kind to celebrate this renowned festival.
Slot Symbols and Betting Options
Oktoberfest is a 5 reel, 9 payline slot and features symbols true to its theme. Players can expect to see beer bottles, water glasses, beer mugs, beer kegs, beer wench, an accordion, a beer wench, a Tyrolean hat, wurst and a guy dressed in a lederhosen.
Oktoberfest is a fun and interactive slot and the betting options are versatile and suitable for any type of player. Betting starts at as little as 1c per line, and the maximum bet is capped at 5 coins per line. The total maximum stake for Oktoberfest is 45 coins, and this slot also features a progressive jackpot that adjusts itself according to your stake.
The Wild symbol of the Oktoberfest slot is represented by a horse of all symbols. This does not make any sense, but it adds to the crazy fun of this slot. This Wild symbol does not substitute all normal symbols like you would expect from a Wild. The Oktoberfest Wild only replaces the Lederhosen Guy and the Beer Wrench. As an added feature, 5 of these Wilds on 1 active payline will result in bonus winnings.
Beer Barrel Bonus Feature
The main feature of the Oktoberfest online slot is called the Beer Barrel Bonus and this is triggered by landing 3 or more matching symbols of either the beer mugs, water glasses or beer bottles. If you land 3 matching symbols, you are in for a 1 time multiplier, 4 symbols will secure 2 times multipliers, and 5 reels of matching symbols will award you with a 3 times multiplier.
As soon as the bonus feature activates, 12 beer barrels will appear on the screen. You can click on these to win instant prizes. Players can keep selecting beer bottles until you reveal the Collect Barrel. The trick here is to try and guess the which beer bottle is hiding the Collect Barrel, because if you select this one first, you will win yourself a maximum bonus multiplier.
Oktoberfest is not all about beer, it is also about winning. This point is proven by the progressive jackpot this slot has to offer. Only spins played at the maximum bet are eligible for the grand jackpot, but do not despair, as Oktoberfest also has a smaller jackpot on offer for the players betting smaller stakes.
