Steinfest will be a Microgaming video slot that celebrates the beer festivals of Germany, and what you will see on the reels of the game will support that. 100% themed symbols were chosen for this design, and they include images with Bavarian men playing at musical instruments, with beer steins, with sausages, hot dogs and gorgeous beer maids, just like you would imagine such an event to be. You might not be able to go to Oktoberfest, but it will come to you, in the form of Steinfest, this slot machine. It will even have some good features, with the Beer Chug Bonus, with free spins, multipliers, scatters and wilds. The slot has only 9 lines though, with payouts reaching $5,000.
Betting and Prizes
Because you have only 9 pay lines, the bets you can place in Steinfest will not go very high, but taken individually they will be adequate nonetheless. You can spend $2.50 at most per line, if you choose to use the maximum of 10 coins, and their denomination is set to $0.25. Since 9 lines are used, the wager will reach $22.50 in that case.
There is a top prize in play here, which will give you 2,000x back, or up to 20,000 coins. With the denominations that are possible in the game, the most you can win from them is $5,000.
Steinfest Slot Features
The logo of Steinfest, with a German house behind it, will act as a substitute, used in the game to take the place of all other icons that can use it, but not of scatter or bonuses. These wilds get a big advantage, the fact that they appear stacked on the reels in base game mode, and double stacked during free spins.
The free spins will start up with the Scatter Sign triggering it. Having these symbols in view, even if a line doesn’t host them all, will be sufficient to get you access to 10 free spins, where wins are doubled and where double stacked wilds are used. Payouts of 1 to 50 times the bet are possible, if two to five scatters are visible.
A feature which is called Beer Chug may also start, and once again you need 3 to 5 symbols of the right type to trigger it. Those symbols have the Beer Stein on them and they appear to be scatters as well. The payouts here will get up to 50 times the bet, and then there is also the matter of the prizes which the bonus game itself can award. You have 3 to 5 picks to make during this feature, for 3 to 5 triggering icons.
Theme & Design
I really enjoyed the game, with its well designed symbols, all of them connected to the beer festival theme. There are Bavarian men singing at accordions and other music instruments, there are a couple of attractive women serving beer, and then there are all the delicious foods that are shown.
Steinfest slot should be an attractive choice for most men, those that dream of going to Oktoberfest themselves at least. Payouts might not look impressive initially, but there are plenty of great features to make them look better.
