Octoberfest is the biggest beer festival in the world and was cancelled in 2021 because of Corona. However, the madness starts on Saturday, September 17, 2022, and it’s likely to get wild after the long period of restrictions. Pragmatic Play’s Octobeer Fortunes seems like a perfect warm-up in this regard, following in the footsteps of previous releases like Treasure Wild and Black Bull.
In fact, it’s almost identical to those two sequels, and the beer-infused theme will probably appeal to certain players more than others. Reeks revolves in a typical German tavern setting, accompanied by cheerful Bavarian folk music. The base game is all about collecting money symbols, and the cash prizes keep accumulating in the bonus round as they are collected by each wild that lands.
Octobeer Fortunes Slot Bonus Features
Premium symbols pay out between 3 and 15 times your bet for 5 matches, and the barmaid wild can appear on all reels. Wilds substitute for payout symbols to complete wins, and the wild pays out the same as the high value beer keg when 3 to 5 appear on a payline. Money symbols land with values between 0.5 and 50 times your bet, and each visible wild collects the cash prizes if at least one appears at the same time.
You need 5+ money symbols to trigger the bonus round, and this awards 9 free spins. The beer tower in the front right collects all triggering money symbol wins, and any new money symbols that land are also collected there. The total accumulated value is collected as a win per wild that lands, and you cannot retrigger or get extra spins.
Finally, players outside the UK and anyone living in an eligible jurisdiction can use the bonus buy options. There are 11 regular options to trigger money symbols, and you can pay between 100 and 200 times your bet to get between 5 and 15 triggering beer money symbols. In addition, there is a mystery option that costs 150 times your bet, and all options give you 9 free spins.
The 200 Spins Octobeer Fortunes Slot Experience
You get a decent taste of the base game, but nothing too exciting happened there for us. We buy the bonus round at 1:30 in the 4:29 minute highlights video and opted for 10 start/release money symbols. You can see for yourself how our 9 Free Spins played out by clicking the play button below.
Beer lovers will probably prefer this upbeat release to the original and somewhat distant Treasure Wild, and the clichéd Oktoberfest theme has a certain charm. If you’re trying to cut down on alcohol, Octobeer Fortunes is hardly the best choice, but that really goes without saying. The game is perfect for warming up before a pre-party and definitely makes you thirsty after a cold.
As with the original release and the slightly more advanced Black Bull in between, the gameplay focuses mainly on collecting money. Occasionally you’ll get good payouts in the base game, but it’s much more exciting when the prize accumulation reaches a decent level in the bonus round. You can “cheat” in this regard by buying up to 15 triggering cash beers (not available in the UK), which is another reason to prefer this festive re-release.
