On the low end are numeric card values of A thru 9.
Bier Fest Pokies Review – Features
The games Wild symbol is unmistakable, plainly labeled “Wild”. It takes the place of any other symbol (except scatters) to create winning combinations. It’s also the highest paying symbol in the game for 5 on a line, set at 10.00x.
The Barrel is a special Wild that only appears on reel 3. When it does, more Barrel Wilds will drop down, expanding to cover the 3rd reel. It also has the random ability to spread those wilds to any, or all, positions on reels 2 and 4.
The Beir Stein is the Scatter symbol. It only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. When 3 of them appear, players will first receive a 0.05x payout, based on the total bet. More importantly, it triggers the Bier Fest Pokies Pick Me Bonus, followed by Free Spins.
The player will choose from a selection of 15 frothy beverages in various glasses and steins. Behind each is number that will either add to the amount of free spins to be awarded, or the multiplier at which those spins will be paid. Players can earn a maximum of 46 free spins with up to 15x multiplier. Once the word ‘Collect‘ is revealed, the bonus game is over and the free spins will start.
The Pint of Bier is another special symbol in Bier Fest Pokies, and can trigger the Bier Drinking feature. It only appears on reels 2 and 4. Anytime the frothy mug appears, it will be tipped and drained of its contents, revealing a new symbol – and possibly an instant prize of 1x, 2x, 3x or 4x the total bet – beneath.
Last but not least, what Oktoberfest pokies game would be complete with Wild Pig Racing? The Wild Pig symbol can only land on reel 1, while a piping hot Pretzel only appears on reel 5. Should both appear in the same position of reel 1 and 5, the Wild Pig Race begins!
Three pigs appear on all three position of reel 1, and will race across the reels to get to that delicious pretzel. Along the way, the piggies will leave random Wilds on the reels. When the race is over, all winning combinations produced by those wilds are paid.
