On Saturday 16 September, one of the greatest events on planet Earth takes place, the Munich Oktoberfest. Thousands gather as the hammer is swung and the so-called Anstich (tapping) takes place with the number of strokes required to get the beer flowing being counted loudly.
But just before then, another memorable event takes place – Apparat Gaming is encouraging players to grab their pretzels and a beer before firing up the reels on October Bier Frenzy, the latest slot to leave its production line on 13 September.
This game celebrates the jovial atmosphere of the Munich Oktoberfest with plenty of beer, bonuses and potentially big wins. October Bier Frenzy is set across five reels and three rows with 10 paylines active in the base game. It sits at the high end of the volatility scale and has a return to player of up to 96.23%.
Those who love beer will want to trigger the Beer Frenzy Feature. This occurs when three or more Scatter symbols land on the reels. When this happens, the soundtrack of the Bavarian brass band changes to a famous Oktoberfest party song with the motto of the drunker you are, the easier it is to sing.
Free Games are then awarded and while they play out, players will want to collect the Beer symbols that land on the reels. Collect 40 and an additional 10 Free Spins are awarded with any winnings from the Beer symbols multiplied by x2, x3 or x10 – Free Games can be re-triggered up to three times a max win potential of 4,500x and up to a total of 50 Free Games.
During Free Games, if the Beerman appears together with Beer symbols, he drinks all of the Beers symbols around him and Collects all of the values that are on the symbols. If there is a Wild but no Beer symbols, he cheers the bar with a “Prost” and turns random symbols into Beers before collecting their values.
For those who struggle to handle their beer, there is the option to Buy the Bonus to trigger the Free Spins and Collection feature.
Alina Dandörfer, Co-founder and Director of Apparat Gaming, said: “Munich Oktoberfest is one of the most important celebrations in the world and October Bier Frenzy puts players in the middle of the party. They can expect beer, bonuses and plenty of big wins in this playful, highly volatile slot.
“Of course, October Bier Frenzy has been made with our trademark German accent – so a quality experience, augenweide (eye candy), solid engineering and absolutely no sense of humour whatsoever.
“This makes for a truly excellent slot that will have players shouting Prost as the Beer symbols drop and the Beerman collects their values for plenty of top payouts. So what are you waiting for – gather round and get ready for the Anstich.”
