Hoist A Few Wins With Oktoberfest Slots
Just in time for the world’s largest beer festival and traveling funfair held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany comes the Oktoberfest Spins online slot to the 888 NJ Online Casino.
It’s relatively standard 3-row, 5-reel, and 25-payline online slot. But Oktoberfest Spins is unique in that it offers a bit of a two-for-one special on every spin and the chance to win what has become a massive progressive jackpot
As the name suggests, Oktoberfest Spins is an Oktoberfest-themed online slot.
That means the game is filled with Oktoberfest symbols including various Beer Steins, Pretzels, and Sausages. Plus, Oktoberfest Spins is hosted by a Beer-Stein hoisting Bavarian Beer Girl.
The addition of a traditional festive Oktoberfest soundtrack and sound effects really completes the game’s beer festival feel.
There are three rows and five reels, meaning Oktoberfest Spins has five three-row columns filled with Oktoberfest symbols. With 25 paylines Oktoberfest Spins offers 25 ways to line up these symbols that pay off.
Click on the “i” information tab to find more information about the paytable, the pattern for all 25 paylines, and all of Oktoberfest Spins’ bonus features.
Starting the game
You can start Oktoberfest Spins by clicking the “Spin” button on the right-hand side of the bottom of the screen.
However, you can decide how much you want to bet first by toggling through the bet amounts to the left of the “Spin” button.
Just to the left of the “Spin” button, you’ll also find and “autoplay” button allowing you to set the game to automatically spin a specific number of times.
The highest-paying symbols
The first clear objective with each spin is to line up three or more of the same Oktoberfest symbols along any of the 25 lines.
The highest paying symbol is the Light Blue Oktoberfest Beer Stein symbol offering up an instant 5,000-credit win for lining up five. However, there’s also an Oktoberfest Slots Beer Keg Wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except for Bonus.
Plus, there is an expanding Wild feature when that Wild symbol appears on reel three during a Refill spin. It expands to cover the entire reel to complete wins.
Don’t win, don’t worry. Every Oktoberfest Spins losing spin is followed up by the appearance of the beer glass Refill symbol. It offers up an instant second chance single free spin.
Unfortunatley, this cannot be retriggered after a second losing spin in a row. However, these second chances really add up to a lot of free spins regardless.
The Okto-Beer-Fest Bonus Game
The Okto-Beer-Fest Bonus Game is triggered if two Oktoberfest Dog Bonus symbols appear in the center of reels 1 and 5 at the same time.
Players get three chances to choose Oktoberfest items that award various multipliers up to 33 times the total bet.
There’s also a progressive jackpot that is awarded randomly. Although, the bigger the size of the bet the more chance there is to randomly trigger a jackpot win.
