Celebrate Life with Lucky Oktoberfest
Oktoberfest is a world-famous beer festival which takes place every year in Munich, Germany. The festival runs from the middle of September to the beginning of October, and attracts millions of visitors who collectively imbibe many more millions of litres of beer. Throw in almost as many pretzels, along with plenty of Bavarian dancing, and Oktoberfest is a great excuse to set aside the mundane cares of the world and celebrate life for its own sake.
Whilst attending Oktoberfest in person is something that takes plenty of planning for anyone who doesn’t happen to live in Germany, a new slot from Red Tiger Gaming now makes it possible to enjoy at least some of the celebratory atmosphere in the comfort of your own home. Lucky Oktoberfest is a five-reel slot with three rows and ten pay lines, and the designers have been careful to include all of the festival’s most iconic traits to provide as authentic an experience as possible.
Welcome to the Beer Hall!
As you would expect, Lucky Oktoberfest takes place inside a traditional beer hall
, so you have the main game in the foreground and a variety of drinkers shown in silhouette in the background. The symbols used in the game include the playing card suits of diamonds, clubs, spades and hearts (all cleverly presented as drinking glasses containing various beers and wines), a pretzel, a Bavarian hat, an accordion, a beer keg, a Bavarian shield, a Free Spins symbol on the first, third and fifth reels, and a Bier mug symbol on the first and fifth reels.
The artwork in this game is very good, and gives you an accurate feeling of being right there in the beer hall that is portrayed. Traditional oompah music plays as you drink – sorry, play – and there is a liberal amount of audience participation, including spontaneous cheers, rounds of applause, and so on.
Bier Reels Feature
In Germany, the traditional toast word is Prost!, and in this game it has inspired its own feature
. The Bier Reels feature is triggered by getting Bier mug symbols on the first and fifth reels at the same time, and when that happens, random reels will fill with beer. As the symbols in those reels are covered in the golden liquid, they will be transformed so that all matching symbols of the same type are left behind. Hopefully that will give you something extra to start celebrating!
Free Spins Feature
Get a Free Spins scatter symbol on the first, third and fifth reels
at the same time and you will instantly trigger the Free Spins feature. However, if you get fewer than three Free Spins symbols on the reels, those symbols will lock in place so that you have an additional chance to trigger the feature on the next spin.
When the Free Spins feature has been triggered, you will be awarded ten free spins. In this part of the game, two special character symbols will come into play, with Hans appearing on the first reel and Helga appearing on the fifth reel. When either of those characters appear on their respective reels, with either a Bier mug or the other character on the opposite reel, you will be treated to a special bonus, as follows:
- Get Hans on the first reel and a Bier mug or Helga on the fifth reel and he will start drinking. He will also give you a randomly increased multiplier for any wins that you get from your remaining free spins.
- Get Helga on the fifth reel and a Bier mug or Hans on the first reel and she will start drinking with just as much gusto as her male counterpart. She will also give you some extra free spins.
Lucky Oktoberfest is a very enjoyable, feel-good game which could be the next best thing to actually attending the world-famous festival in person. With great graphics, superbly atmospheric audio and a highly volatile gaming experience to keep you on your toes, there’s plenty of fun to be had here. Visit your favourite casino which offers Red Tiger Gaming titles to enter the virtual beer hall, but be warned that beer itself is not included, so you’ll have to bring your own!
