Time for Oktoberfest! Question is, will you remember what happened in the morning after playing on the Bier Fest mobile slot?
Time to head to the barrels in a new game by Genesis where wild pig race, beer runs free, and pretzels leave you all in a twist.
The action comes pretty fast with this Bier Fest slot, as you are faced with four bonus features that just keep on coming.
And as you spin the rolling barrels of beers, gaze at the pretty fraulein, and watch the autumnal leaves fall around this very pretty mobile slot machine, you might not even notice that you’re not winning very much at all…
You won’t win very much over these 25 paylines, even for a 5 of a kind win, much like in Gods of Giza slot by the same provider.
And technically, there’s only 3 real bonus features that give big wins. We can almost immediately remove the ‘bier’ symbol that shows up on reel 2 and 4, as you barely get much more than 1 to 4 times your bet.
That said, all these tiny little top ups do keep you singing along until the main bratwurst of wilds and free spins come into play.
You either get the flying pig, that come across your screen, leaving a series of wilds in their trail.
Then, you have the barrel symbol on reel 3, that expands to cover the whole reel. If you are really, really, lucky, it will cover reel 2, 3 and 4 at the same time.
Now you’re cooking with bacon fat. We’ve had a blazing 130 times our bet win with that feature, that left us frolicking happy as pigs in mud.
The ultimate problem with this Bier Fest slot machine is that you are always looking for the next feature to bring you luck. And whilst the free spins don’t come often, many a time we’ve felt frustrated when we’ve only won 8 free spins with 1x multiplier, and little more.
It makes you feel like there’s a lot of wasted spin, as you know between features, that not much will occur.
And then, out of nowhere, you get 25 free spins with a 4x multipliers, and 200 times your bet, and you’ll wonder if a beer mug hit you over the head.
There’s no doubt those kind of wins are hard to come by in this Bier Fest video slot.
But they are there, and for a low variance slot machine, that’s a nice touch.
Mostly, be prepared to sing along for some easy playing spin. Not quite as joyous as the brilliant Machine Gun Unicorn slot game, but a decent addition to the genre.

Wild: The blue wild symbol replaces all other symbols except scatter.
Barrel Wild: The barrel wild only appears on reel 3, and when it does, expands to cover the whole reel.
It can also, tip over onto reel 2 and/or 4, for some truly impressive wins.
Bier Drinking Symbol: A mug of beer will spin on reel 2 and 4. If they land, you'll either get instant cash, ranging from 1x to 4x your bet, or just a mystery symbol.
Wild Pig Racing: A wild pig landing on reel 1, and a pretzel landing on reel 5 will trigger this feature.
You'll then get 3 flying pig, one on each row, flying across the screen, racing to get the pretzel. In their wake they leave wilds on screen, from about 1 to 5.
It's better not to ask where they keep the wilds.
Bier Stein Free Spins: You will get a cart stand full of beer, when you get 3 or more scatters.
Here you will pick from the beer mugs, until you hit collect. You either get free spins, or free spins and multipliers.
The maximum you can win here is up to 46 free spin games and up to 15x multiplier. Which is impressive, but difficult to get.
Mostly you'll get 8 to 10 free spins, with a 1x or 2x multiplier, and then, every once in a while, the multipliers increase and things get interesting.
The Bier Fest mobile slot will appeal to fans of all things German, beer, and bacon. It's got beautiful graphics, and a fun theme, that elevates it from what would otherwise be a fairly average low variance game.
Still, the hope of bigs wins are right there, with stacked wilds and 15 multipliers, which makes this a great learner slot for beginners.
If you like the game play, but looking for some higher wins and action, we'd also recommend the wonderfully different Eye of the Kraken slot machine.
