Since we haven’t for some time reviewed an online pokie by the creative design team at Amatic, we were exceptionally pleased to get to review their latest Oktoberfest release. The game is themed around the world’s biggest and grandest beer festival, after all, which calls for a celebration in our books.
The symbols seen on the 5×3 set of reels and 10 fixed paylines leave no doubt as to what the game is really about – not that the name of the pokie does either. Symbols include a Bavarian hat, a large keg of freshly brewed beer, a beautiful Munich Maiden, a German sausage presented on a dining plate, a delicious looking pretzel, an iced biscuit shaped into the form of a heart, and a French horn musical instrument.
The game also features Wild and Scatter symbols, which constitute the pokies’ special bonus symbols. These are represented by a huge cooling Beer Mug filled with delicious ale and a Beer Barrel, respectively.
The Wild Beer Mug will substitute for all of the pokies’ regular symbols – i.e. all symbols except for the Barreled Beer Keg Scatter. Best of all is that whenever it completes a winning combo of symbols, even during regular base-game play, the Wild will apply a 2x Multiplier.
The Scatter does make an appearance on all 5 of the pokies’ reels, and landing 3, 4, or 5 of these simultaneously, will instantly trigger either 2x, 10x, or 50x the player’s bet – all depending of course on how many Scatters were landed in simultaneous fashion.
