Quest for Beer is a promising slot, at least theme wise being one of those few titles that can get a smile out of a player. The action inside will see a Viking warrior as he goes on a quest, looking for beer and apparently finding it. You see this wonderful brew, as it is being brought to our Viking, by an attractive beer wench. You have free spins to take advantage of, a bonus game with axe throwing action, scatter symbols and wilds. The slot has the standard 25 lines, 5 reels and you can get a prize worth $25,000.
Betting and Prizes
Quest for Beer slot has a betting system that is not unusual, though it does have a large number of coins that you can use each spin. Up to 500 coins are in a single round’s bet, each line accepting up to 20 of them. One other way to influence what the wager will be worth, will be with the help of the coin value, going up to $0.25. The largest total bet will be at $125, while the line bet gets $5.
The regular top payout gets to a value of 2,500x, which could offer you 50,000 coins. If the win is obtained during the feature with free spins, it will be at 5,000x instead, or up to $25,000.
Quest for Beer Slot Features
A Beer Tankard is a pretty natural symbol to use in such a slot machine, and it gets a major role, being the only one to act as a substitute for other symbols available in the game. You’re not going to replace a Beer Wench scatter with a Beer Tankard, but all regular combinations will use the wild if it’s in the right location.
The free spins trigger with the help of the Beer Tankard wild. Three of them have to appear, on the only three reels which get wilds, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th ones. You receive 10 free spins and a 2x multiplier at this point.
As for the Beer Wench, this is a scatter feature, the symbol having the ability to appear in any position, yet still brings a large payout for you. Up to 100x the wager is the value of the prize that is offered by up to 5 of these Beer Wenches when they’re present.
The Beer Wench gets you access into the bonus game, the Axe Throwing feature. The trigger is the expected one, with 3 or more scatters having to be present. Three axes will be thrown, at three kegs of beer, out of the five available on the screen.
Theme & Design
The theme is Viking and beer related, a perfect mix of topics, which obviously can blend quite naturally. The design style tends towards a caricature, but the fact that it can be funny as well is a plus for it. The downside is the fact that there are too many poker cards, a bit too silly looking and not very manly, the way they should be where Vikings and beer are involved.
Quest for Beer offers its funny theme and design, its list of features which is quite complete, plus some prizes which seem lower than regular, but still respectable.
