HOW TO PLAY OKTOBERFEST
Set in an old fashioned tavern Oktoberfest slot showcases a festive spirit with little decorative flags all over the place. The color scheme is something that was obviously been given a lot of thought. All the colors fit the autumn feel; we have brown, dark green, dark burgundy red, gold and dark orange. The symbols are also carefully chosen and round up the theme nicely. Apparently, the game benefits from 15 symbols. Base game symbols are divided into two groups: Fest Symbols and Pretzel Symbols.
The Fest Symbols category includes a Wild, a horn trumpet, a beer keg, an accordion, a traditional hat and sausage. Pretzel Symbols are actually low paying icons A, K, Q, J and 10, which is a standard, but here we have them shaped like salted pretzels – a pretty common snack that accompanies good beer. Yummy. Things get even tastier when Prost Wilds land represented by two beer mugs joined in a toast. There are two more Wilds shown as festival participants Gretchen and Hansi. All four Wilds can replace any other base game symbol, but not the beer Scatter.
At first sight, the Oktoberfest slot appears simplistic; there are 3 rows and 5 reels of symbols and 20 non-adjustable paying lines. For some people, beer is just beer, flavored water. But much like beer Oktoberfest has a lot to offer once the foam settles. As we said, the slot has 4 Wilds, that’s 3 more than your average slot. Those alone make the gameplay unique, without even looking at special features.
As for the game’s mechanism, NoLimit City redesigns an overcrowded control panel with one that is straightforward and easy to use. To make things easier for players who don’t want to waste too much time tweaking the smallest of details, the panel below the reels shows a big Spin button in the center then Autoplay and Fast Spin at its sides. There is a balance read and the possibility to adjust one’s total bet. The rest of the settings are hidden in paytable icon above the reels, with an exception of the sound switch on the far left.
