The action in this slot takes place across a 5×3 grid, with 40 ways to play. To score a win, you have to land a minimum of three matching symbols on a line, starting from the leftmost reel. Match five symbols, and your reward will be much bigger.
The low-paying symbols pay 1.25x your bet, while the premium symbols pay from 2.5 to 3.125x your stake. The Wilds are the top players, with a five-of-a-kind combo of beer kegs paying you 12.5x your bet.
RTP for this game is an above average of 96.18% to 97.26%, and the volatility is set to medium-high.
You can place bets of between 0.4 and 60 per spin, and the highest possible win is a massive 10,000x times your bet. Theoretically, that means a massive 600,000 win on a single spin.
Click on the three lines to the bottom-left of the screen, and you’ll find a complete set of instructions. You’ll be able to check out the paytable, understand the game rules, review your game history, and learn about the bonus features. Also in the menu are settings to control the sounds, music, and turbo mode.
You have two ways you can spin the reels, either manual or autoplay. Autoplay means the reels spin automatically until you hit stop or until free spins are triggered.
Every October, in Munich, Germany, locals, and visitors celebrate the world’s largest beer festival. Millions of people attend, and it’s not just about the beer, although it does play a massive part in the celebrations.
Beers on Reels takes its inspiration from this famous event, and the reels are set in a wooden tavern, warmly lit by a flickering fire. Decorating the reels, you’ll find steins of beer, sausages, pretzels, and an accordion. As for the bonuses, you have to fill the taps at the top and pour more beer onto the reels for stacked wilds. Then, journey into the beer garden, you’ll find yourself surrounded by beautiful mountains during the free spins feature.
The action is set to a genuinely jaunty soundtrack, although you can mute it if it starts to get annoying.
There are several unique features in this Beers on Reels slot. They include:
You have four missions to choose from: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. Each requires an increasing number of symbols. Collect enough specific combinations of symbols, and you’ll be awarded a prize. You can check how many you’ve collected in a meter at the side of the screen.
Prizes are as follows:
Above the first, third, and fifth reels, you’ll find beer taps with space for three wild coins. Once you collect your three coins on a single reel, the reel becomes a full column of stacked wilds for three turns. Accumulated coins stay in the tap until you have the three you need, so you don’t have a limited number of turns to find them.
Land three bonus symbols on one turn, and you trigger the free spins round. It starts with ten free spins. Then, for every silver coin you find, you’ll be awarded one extra spin. To add to the excitement, stacked wilds become sticky wilds during the free spins round and stay in place until the round is finished.
The theme chosen for the Beers on Reels is not one of the most common. However, the design of the game is well thought out, and there are some impressive bonuses. The symbols you collect in the missions and the stacked wilds don’t disappear until complete, so this does mean you’re in with a good chance of triggering these features and their potential for big wins, as long as you’re patient enough.
