Octobeer Fortunes Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

Reels/Paylines: 5 reels + 20 paylines

Stakes Range: 20p to £100 per spin

RTP: 96.53%

Max Win: 4,500 x bet per spin

The Octobeer Fortunes slot is played on 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 fixed paylines. All symbols pay from left to right, starting from reel 1.

Stakes are typical of many Pragmatic Play slots and they range from 20p up to £100 per spin here. As always, use the + and – buttons on either side of the spin button to adjust your total bet. Autoplay is possible in most territories outside the UK, and so too are turbo spins.

The Octobeer Fortunes RTP is 96.53%, which is generous. It’s well above the 96% average, but please note that the volatility here is in the high range (4.5/5). In terms of hit frequency, around a quarter of all spins on average will result in a winner.

The maximum win is 4,500 x your stake, which isn’t too bad but not as good as a lot of other slots on the market. Your best chance of landing the top prize will come in the Free Spins feature.

Theme – beer and accordions galore

Theme: Oktoberfest

High Value Symbol: Barrel

Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop

The theme in the Octobeer Fortunes slot game is a giveaway from the title. It’s all about Oktoberfest, which is held annually in Munich, Germany. With accordions playing and the sound effects of people drinking in tents, you really are just 1 real beer away from being at Oktoberfest. The visuals are solid and the soundtrack is great.

Set in a beer hall, the reels are wooden looking with a green background. It’s not the most colourful slot around, but it’s ok to look at. Everything improves once you land the Free Spins feature, with the music speeding up and a gold glow coming from behind the reels. I like the clinking of the beer glasses in the Money symbols too when they land, that’s a nice touch.

The low-paying symbols on the reels are clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades. These are joined by higher-paying pretzels, accordions, hats, mugs and barrels. The barrel is the most rewarding symbol in the game, paying 2, 5 or 15 x your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

The game’s Wild is a female Oktoberfest waitress holding 2 steins of beer. It pays up to 15x for 5 in combination and substitutes for all except the Money symbol.

Octobeer Fortunes Bonus Features

There are 3 bonus features in the Octobeer Fortunes slot game – a Money Collection feature, a Free Spins feature, and the option to buy free spins. Let’s run you through how everything works.

Money Collection feature

On every spin, the Money symbol takes a random value from a predefined set, which is 0.5x, 1x, 1.5x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 7.5x, 10x, 20x or 50x. Whenever at least 1 Wild lands along with a Money symbol, for every Wild the total value of Money symbols on the screen is awarded.

Free Spins feature

octobeer-fortunes-slot-free-spins-feature

Land 5 or more Money symbols to trigger the Free spins feature. The bonus round will start with 9 free spins. But before it begins, the value of all Money symbols that triggered the bonus feature is added together and collected into the large glass of beer to the right of the reels.

This feature is progressive, so the values of all Money symbols that land are collected and every Wild symbol that hits awards the currently collected value.

The Free Spins feature cannot be retriggered

Octobeer Fortunes Review Summary – a traditional slot all about beer

The Octobeer Fortunes slot is probably only going to appeal to those who enjoy beer. There’s certainly a large section of players in that category but it’s not going to be for everyone. Black Bull or Treasure Wild might be worth a look if you want similar gameplay with a different theme.

I like the visuals and the soundtrack in this one, but then again I like beer so I’m bound to say that. It’s not going to win any awards for innovation, but if you’re looking for a solid slot with a good Free Spins feature, you won’t be disappointed. It’s similar to a lot of Pragmatic Play slots in that it’s not over-complicated, which a lot of players like.

The 4,500 x max win potential could be a little higher, especially seeing as the probability of landing it is 1 in 5,908,813. Pretty tough to achieve. But overall, it’s not a bad slot although you don’t really have too many features on tap here.

If you want more bonus features, consider the Going Underground slot, which has 10 bonus features in total and max wins of 5,000 x your stake. Another option is Nolimit City’s Punk Toilet, which is completely different but has beer wilds. It also has some great features and max wins of 33,333 x your stake.

Pros
  • 4,500 x bet wins
  • Fun theme
  • Great on mobile
Cons
  • Lacking bonus features
  • High volatility
