Oktoberfest Slot (Amatic)
This word is not new, and Amatic has borrowed inspiration from the world-renown festival to create an amazing slot machine.
Octoberfest slot machine showcases Bavaria’s leading festival, and this slot is quite easy to manoeuvre.
From afar, it’s a slot that looks quite interesting. I was attracted by its vibrant colours, and after playing this game for a couple of times, here is my review:
Oktoberfest will give you a layout that comprises of 5x3 reels, and10 active lines. The slot lacks when it comes to features, and only wilds (with 2x multipliers) are present.
Betting and Prizes
Each spin will cost between $0.10 and $30, and for its 10 active lines, you will be required to use between $0.01 to $3.
Oktoberfest is capable of paying as much as 100x the stake from a single line. This means the entire slot will deliver up to1,000x the stake. Considering that up to $30 can be used per spin, we are talking of a maximum payout of 30,000 from just one spin.
Oktoberfest Slot Features
One of the major disadvantages of this slot is its lack of features. Amatic has created a very plain slot machine, and if you are used to features like free spins, there are none on Oktoberfest.
The wild symbol is present though, and it appears in the form of a Beer Mug. The wild can be used to form winning combinations, as well as substitutes.
If you manage to fill the reels with the wild, the slot will reward you with a jackpot that goes to as high as1,000x the stake. When used as a substitute, the wild feature will be very beneficial because it will bring along a 2x multiplier, which in return will double the value the regular spins.
The other feature symbol on Oktoberfest is the scatter (Beer Barrel), and it appears on all five reels. To benefit from the Beer Barrels, you must simultaneously land them on the 3rd, 4th or 5th reels. If you are lucky to do this, the rewards will be 2x, 10x or 50x the stake, respectively.
Theme & Design
Personally, I do not find the design of this slot to be very elaborate, and neither can I describe it as anything modern.
However, it’s an interesting slot that connects you to the Oktoberfest beer festival. I also love the themed symbols that Amatic has used here, and these include a Beer Mug (wild), a Barrel (scatter), a Beer Maiden, Sausage, Blue Bavarian Hat, Heart-shaped signs and Pretzels, as well as some Music Instruments.
Oktoberfest does not offer anything different from what I have seen on other slots with this theme. The slot lacks action primarily due to its lack of features, and this makes it a somewhat boring slot machine.
Amatic could have done better with this game, and I can only recommend it to beginners or casual players.
