Freibier is a 5 reel, 4 row, 40 payline slot which is powered by Novomatic. Playable from 40p to £20 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices (including Android and iOS), this game is based on famous Bavarian beer fest and has a free spins feature where you can get up to 20 free spins with an extra wild symbol on the reels.

Visually, Freibier is a step up from what you usual see from Novomatic – with wooden reels, symbols on the reels include German style playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9) as well as culinary traditions such as pretzels, gingerbread hearts and pork knuckles.

There’s also beer which is the wild symbol and appears only on the 3 middle reels – it also substitutes for all other symbols bar the scatter. The highest value symbol is the woman in the Bavarian costume who rewards you with 25 times your total stake for 5 across a payline.

The scatter is the barrel of beer – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 2, 6 or 20 times your stake plus 12, 15 or 20 free spins as it triggers the Free Games feature. In the base, the remaining reels will respin if you get scatters on 3 or 4 reels giving you an extra chance to win up to 20 free spins.

The feature also benefits from an extra wild symbol. During the feature both the wild and Freibier wild substitute for all symbols. Both wilds only appear on the 3 middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4).

Freibier is quite a simple slot which will appeal to the beer drinkers out there – variance wise, it’s somewhere in the middle with the bigger wins coming from having 2 wilds in the Free Games feature. There’s nothing revolutionary on show here but it’s a decent addition to the expansive Novomatic portfolio. I recommend you try some of the more volatile offerings like Kingdom of Legend and Red Lady.
