With just under a week to go, we find ourselves ‘slap-bang’ in the height of festivities for Oktoberfest. The annual German Festival comes around this time every year, kick-starting 2 weeks of beer drinking, frankfurter eating, and pretzel snacking.
The event, which holds its main festival in Munich, Germany, is celebrated around the world by Germans and non-Germans alike, as some people will make any excuse to chug loads of beer while being served by blonde ladies with pigtails.
Traditional regalia is adorned, including green shorts, white shirts, hats, and suspenders, while accordion led music ensures that the atmosphere remains lively.
At VegasCasino, we want to envelop you in the culture of this great festival in our own way, to ensure that you are able to catch at least some of the spirit involved. As such, we would like to point out that we have our very own Octoberfest slot game by game-maker, Booming Games. The title is adapted especially for wagering in Bitcoin, to offer something special for crypto gamblers.
For a full review of our offering, please continue reading.
Booming Game has supplied us with a very simple Oktoberfest game, which is spelt with a ‘c’ instead of the traditional ‘k’. Put that behind us and we can move on to the fact that the offering provides us with some attractive features, such as a free spin round, with 2-way pay possibilities to boot.
Winning ways are never far away, and this slot has the ability to pay you out over 2,000 times your line stake (200x total stake) over a single payline. On maximum bet, that will fetch you 200,00000 mB.
As stated above, this slot celebrates Oktoberfest to the full. The reels are transparent and set neatly on an unobtrusive background that keeps most of the focus on the reel symbols. The blue fabric base is dotted in small iconic pictures of traditional items from the festival, such as beer chugs, beer barrels, pretzels, frankfurters, and more.
The reels come alive with the sound of music. The tune is catchy and vibrant, provided by an accordion dominated melody. It can be a little repetitive after a while, but you can switch the soundtrack off if you prefer to play in peace.
The main focus rests with the reel set, which offers icons that bolster the game theme nicely. Higher paying symbols include a mug of beer and a traditional hat, while smaller icons represent traditional playing card values that range from 8 to Ace.
While the symbols on the low end are a tad generic, at least they are ornately designed to fit the game’s theme; each of them representing a piece of embroidery on what seems to be gingham fabric.
There are three special symbols in the game as well. The Wild is represented by a Blonde Barmaid, which will substitute for all standard game symbols to help complete winning combinations. The scatter is the trigger for the main feature and is iconized by the Master Beer Brewer.
The third and final special icon is a heart-shaped cake, which has the unique ability to transform reels into 2-way pay zones.
The game holds a very traditional setup of 5 reels with 3 rows of icons. It offers an adjustable payline structure, offering you the opportunity of playing between 1 and 20 paylines per spin. This can be done for a total bet as low as 0.01000 mB, or as high as 200,00000 mB.
Once your desired wager is in place, you can spin the reels for the outcome of the round. The Auto Spin feature in the game allows for you to set the machine to roll the reels for you on consecutive spins. This is a great feature if you want to just sit back and enjoy a ‘cold one’ while the game plays and the wins come rolling in.
Wins are made when you manage to land three or more identical symbols over a single payline, starting from the left-most reel to the right.
Octoberfest is not cluttered with too many bonus rounds and special features but does offer a great Free Spins bonus. This can be triggered by landing 3 or more of the scatter symbols on the reels on a single spin. This action will grant you 10 free spins for bonus action.
During the free spin round, you may land some Special Cake symbols. Should three of these appear at the same time, it will trigger the 2–Way Pay feature, where you will now not only reap rewards landing wins from left to right but from right to left, as well. This means twice the chance of wins.
Good slots entertainment always offers supreme high stakes action, but especially when you are able to wager and win Bitcoin. All your wins can be held in your wallet for investment purposes, thanks to the holding value of the e-currency.
