If you love German traditions, including Oktoberfest, then you won't want to miss playing the new Steinfest Slots by Microgaming. This colorful and graphic packed slot game is a sure favorite for the beer drinking crowd with a terrific bonus game that includes chugging down frothy mugs of beer for additional winnings.
Steinfest Slots offers gamblers nine paylines on five reels, perfect for keeping track of all the possible winning combinations. The wagers range from a low of 0.01 to up to 0.25 credits on each betting line. As with almost all slot games the payouts are from left to right with scatter symbols adding to the fun of the game. Different combinations of symbols can result in 5 to 600 coin payouts per active bet line depending on the number of symbols that show.
With the German theme to the game it isn't surprising that the symbols all related to enjoyment of great food, entertainment and of course, the national drink of beer. The scatter symbol is the swinging pub sign that is appropriately named Scatter. The beer chug bonus game is triggered by hitting 3, 4 or 5 bonus beer stein symbols on the reels. The Steinfest German tavern symbol is wild, substituting for all symbols expect the scatter and bonus.
Other important symbols include the lovely blonde or brunette barmaids, the accordion player, drummer, turkey, ham, bratwurst, sausage and of course the pretzel plates. Matching 3, 4 or 5 of each of these symbols, with the two barmaids as mixed pay, provides the corresponding winning payouts.
Three of the tavern sign scatter symbols will trigger 10 free spins. During this time the wild symbol, the German Steinfest, will be double stacked, providing a huge possibility of additional winnings. All regular winnings during the free spins are doubled and the free spin option can be triggered during the free spins.
The bonus game occurs when three or more of the bonus beer stein symbols are present. This takes you to a completely different screen where you are able to click on three or more different beer guzzling patrons. The number of picks you have is dependent on the number of bonus symbols on the reels. In addition to providing you with bonus cash, some of the patrons you choose may also have an additional extra pick, allowing you to select another beer drinker for additional winnings.
The fun graphics, fast action and high winning possibilities of Steinfest slots really make it a great game to try. If you haven't played yet check it out at great online casinos such as Slots.LV Casino or Lincoln Casino, you definitely won't be disappointed you did.
