What can be said about Oktoberfest that has not been addressed in countless books, movies and magazines? Quite a lot actually as this great slot game will show you! You won’t have to travel to Germany to be part of the fun and excitement of this annual sixteen-day festival.  You can join in on the fun with Amaya Games and their Oktoberfest slots game.

Unfortunately you will have to bring your own ice cold mug of beer as Oktoberfest slots only brings bonuses, free spins and a great jackpot. Oktoberfest features 5 reels of play, with three symbols per reel. It has 9 pay-lines and offers a progressive cash jackpot of $125,000.

Meet The Bar Staff

All the pay symbols are related to the traditional Oktoberfest imagery. There is the buxom, blonde barmaid. She is almost certainly carrying a tray of beers just out of view. There is also a moustachioed gentleman dressed in full lederhosen and a high smile plastered across his face. Interestingly the usual nine to ace lower value symbols have all been replaced by Oktoberfest paraphernalia.

There is a snazzy green tolearan hat that will get anyone in the mood for a festival. A lovely oak beer barrel filled with festive spirit, a delicious plate of bratwurst for when you get a bit peckish. The lowest value symbols round out the Oktoberfest theme with a large bottomed pipe and a red and white accordion, clearly ready to pump out the jams and get everyone into the correct spirit.

Finally there is the highest value symbol, a smiling horse who has clearly had a few, as well as three beer barrel bonus symbols, a freshly poured mug of beer, a cool beer bottled that’s just had its top popped and a refreshing glass of water, that would definitely come in handy the next day.

Hops To Your Betting

In Oktoberfest slots your betting limit ranges from$0.001 to $5, so if you are a low to mid level player, you will be to have a great time still. The progressive jackpot is determined by your betting behaviour so the more you play and wager the bigger your rewards. The top jackpot prize will be paid out only on max bet spins, which is 45 credits. If you hit the jackpot during lower wager spins, the jackpot payout is adjusted accordingly

The Beer Barrel Bonus Feature

The main draw of October fest slots is the beer barrel bonus feature. If you manage to get three or more water glass, beer mug or beer bottle symbols. If you get between three, four or five of these symbols on screen you will trigger the bonus multiplier. Four symbols will trigger a 2x multiplier. Five matching symbols trigger a 3x multiplier.

Once the beer barrel bonus triggers, you will be taken to a new screen where you will be presented with twelve beer barrels. Clicking on one of these barrels will reward you with cash prizes. If you click on the collect barrel the bonus feature finishes. If you manage to select the collect barrel on your first pick, you will be rewarded with the maximum bonus multiplier.
