Oktoberfest is the slot machine that the whole world has been waiting for. The fact that this is currently being brought to online casinos by NoLimit City, a Swedish-Maltese software developer, is somewhat unusual, but only shows that this traditional beer festival is well-known and above all popular everywhere.
That NoLimit knows how to handle skewers and drinks has already been proven at the two Kitchen Drama Slots – BBQ Frenzy and Sushi Mania. Why shouldn’t this also work with pretzel and beer at the Oktoberfest?

A slot machine with such a name must of course fulfill all sorts of clichés. This of course includes the right tent music, pretzels, traditional costumes and beer barrels. All this is offered to us when we start the game. Folk music in waltz time and a lively pub atmosphere welcome us at the Oktoberfest slot. The machine is equipped with 5 semi-transparent reels with a total of 20 paylines on the 3 rows.
The 20 paylines are fixed and cost a minimum of 1 pens line, thus there is a minimum of 20 pens per spin. As a maximum bet, you can risk with 100 Pound per spin. There is also the Speed button, which allows the reels to spin faster. If you are satisfied with all your settings and do not want to press the start button after each round, you can also use the AutoPlay function. Here you can let the slot run automatically between 5 and 100 game rounds. It is also possible to set various parameters and limits at which AutoPlay is terminated.
As with most online slot machines, you need at least three identical symbols on a line, which are always counted from the left to get a payout. The exact table odds can be found in Oktoberfest menu. The wild symbol increases your chances of winning. It can replace all other symbols and also has the highest odds.
Due to the different extras, the slot is very entertaining and simply makes you feel good. NoLimit didn’t overdo it with the animations either. They simply fit well into the picture and make us smile from time to time. The maximum win with a single spin is set by the manufacturer as 50,000 Pounds and the theoretical payout ratio at 96.75% level.
From a technical point of view, as with all other NoLimit City slot machines, there is absolutely nothing to complain about. Even if it is a game with a traditional theme, you will find here the latest technologies. Slot runs smoothly in all current browsers as well as on mobile phones. What always strikes us positively at NoLimit City is the clear structure, simple menu and detailed design. Here everything is well thought-out and sensibly arranged.
You will recognize pretzel symbols which is responsible for the small winnings. When looking for medium and large prizes, festive symbols which range from the cut sausage, the Seppel hat, accordion to the beer keg and the post horn can help you. There are also three different wilds and a scatter, which we will discuss in more detail later.
As with most machines, extra spins and special functions are of course the salt in the soup, or in this case the frothy foam on the beer. Here, NoLimit has come up with some nice features, which not only keep the gaming mood high, but also provide decent profits.
- Already in the main game there are different wilds. So there is Gretchen on the second reel and Hansi on the fourth reel. These always appear stacked and can, with a little luck, cover the all the lines. When Gretchen and Hansi are completely on the reels there Prost Spins are activated.
- With Prost Spins, these two remain on the reels as sticky wilds for three extra re-spins. In addition, there is a Walking Wild on the third reel, which slips from top to bottom during the re-spins. This guarantees winnings for all three spins as a combination of 4.
- Party Spins – these are triggered randomly.
- Pretzel Party – also this extra feature is randomly generated. All pretzel symbol turn into wilds.
Besides these features there is also the Beer Scatter. This one is only available in the basic game and the Beer Spins, but not at the Pretzel Party, Prost Spins or the Party Spins. You need to collect 3 scatter to trigger the 10 extra spins – called Beer Spins. During the 10 free rounds, a beer-o-meter is displayed on the right side of the game. This shows how many scatters you collected during the extra rounds. There are 3 additional spins for each 3 beer scatters collected and the multiplier is increased by 1 to a maximum of 5. You can win up to 12 additional spins in total.
Oktoberfest is an entertaining slot that serves all clichés, but cleverly integrates them into the game and does not exaggerate. The bonus features and the associated chances of winning keep the entertainment. The slot machine seamlessly joins the high-quality slot machines. Cheers!
