Take a trip to Bavaria in Oktoberfest, a German-themed slot from Nolimit City. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game that comes with plenty of extras including respins with super stacked symbols or added wilds. There’s also a free spins round. Play on your computer, tablet or mobile device from between 20p and £100 per spin.
There’s a real Teutonic feel to the design of Oktoberfest. On the reels you’ll find A to 10 symbols in the style of pretzels. More rewarding are the sausage, accordion, hat and beer keg symbols. Best of all is the brass instrument that pays 1, 3 or 25 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
Those same payouts are on offer from the standard wild that replaces everything bar the scatter and can appear on all 5 reels. Nolimit City has packed plenty of extras into this German fest.
- Party Spins feature – this can strike at random on any spin and can fill a reel or better still multiple reels with stacked higher value symbols.
- Pretzel Party Spin – this too triggers randomly. All of the lower value A to 10 pretzel symbols turn wild for that spin.
- Prost Win Spins feature – look out too for Gretchen and Hansl. These are stacked wilds that can land on reels 2 and 4 in the base game. When these land fully stacked, you’ll trigger a special wild mode. The 2 characters raise a glass and form a single wild symbol on reel 3. You’ll then receive 2 more guaranteed win spins.
- Bierspins feature – land 3 scatters on the same spin to trigger this round. Your reward is 10 free spins. Collect scatters during this feature can bring multipliers of up to 5x into play. You could also add up to 12 extra free spins to your total.
The cartoon style visuals in Oktoberfest are nicely done and the brass heavy oompah backing track fits the theme perfectly. The range of extras offers a decent amount of variety too. It’s the Bierspins feature, complete with an even more jaunty backing track, that the best opportunities arise. The variance is just north of medium with top wins of 500 times your stake on each Bierspin.
We’re quite partial to donning the virtual lederhosen and enjoyed Oktoberfest. It’s well designed and the features deliver more than enough action to keep things interesting. If you fancy an internationally flavoured slot that takes a break from the usual destinations of China, Mexico and Ireland, then this German party is as good a place as any to start. I would also try WMS’ Heidi’s Bier Haus which has a similar theme.
