Oktoberfest Spins from 888: Slot Review - time to taste some fine German beer!
Oktoberfest is a famous beer festival that is celebrated in Munich every year and it attracts tourists from all over the world who want to experience this joyous event for themselves. The game is a celebration of this festival, so get ready to strap on some lederhosen and drink as much German beer as possible!
It is a 5 reel slot game with 25 paylines and comes with features such as an oktobeerfest bonus game, a refill option and a progressive jackpot.
The first thing worth highlighting is the Refill feature. This is triggered when you have a non-winning round and you are awarded a single free spin. It is a very neat feature but cannot be retriggered.
The Wild symbol is depicted by a green and grey keg. It substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus symbol. If a Wild symbol appears on reel 3 during a Refill spin then it will expand to cover all positions on the reel but this only occurs when you have a winning combination.
The bonus symbol is depicted by a lovely Dachshund sporting a green cap. If 2 of these symbols appear in the centre of reels 1 and 5 at the same time then the Oktobeerfest bonus game is triggered. In this feature, you are given 3 chances to choose items that award multipliers. The multipliers range between 3 and 33 so if you choose correctly you could win a nice payout.
The last feature to mention is the progressive jackpot. This jackpot is awarded randomly and no matching symbols are required in order to win it. The size of the bet you wager will determine your chances of winning this jackpot.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The graphics are fantastic and the slot is superbly laid out. The moment you load the game, you are greeted by an attractive blonde lady and a really cute Dachshund. The background is covered in a clear blue Munich sky with a big wheel and revellers everywhere enjoying some fine German beer.
The symbols are colourful and nicely detailed and run along the reels smoothly.
The music is quite celebratory and full of traditional German sounds. It is really catchy and a nice addition to the game.

Oktoberfest Spins is produced by 888 and it’s a delightful representation of the Oktoberfest festival.

I really enjoyed the refills feature as it is a nice consolation when you do not land a winning combination on the reels. So drink up and raise a glass to the Oktoberfest!
