Oktoberfest begins in Munich later this month. If you cannot journey half way round the world do not worry. Imbibe your favourite beer at home and spice up the action with some great beer themed pokies. There are two from the leading online casino software provider Microgaming that will keep you occupied for hours.
Long before Oktoberfest, the centre of beer consumption was further north in the land of the Vikings. Quest for Beer takes up this theme with symbols like Viking, longship, beer barrel and horned helmet. The beer tankard is the wild symbol. It also awards 10 free spins when it appears on the middle three reels in the same spin. All payouts are doubled in the free spins and the feature can be retriggered. The sexy beer wench awards scatter payouts and triggers the Axe Throwing bonus game on the second screen. You have to open three of the five beer barrels by throwing axes at them. You can win up to 40 times the triggering bet. Quest for Beer online pokie also offers the Microgaming gamble game.
Steinfest online pokie is properly based on Oktoberfest. It brings to life the Bavarian festival of beer, music and food. The visuals and win animations are amazing. The top payouts are awarded by the two serving girls carrying mugs and steins of beer. They pay when they appear as like symbols and also in mixed combinations. The other symbols include accordion, drum and tuba. The low paying symbols are Oktoberfest culinary delights like turkey, ham, bratwurst, brat dog and pretzel, instead of the usual playing card icons. The Steinfest logo is the stacked wild, the pub sign is the scatter symbol and the stein is the bonus symbol. Three or more stein symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the Beer Chug bonus game. You will have to choose beer drinking patrons on the second screen and will win random bonus prizes. The pub sign awards scatter payouts and also triggers the free spins bonus round. You will be awarded ten free spins in which all payouts are doubled. The free spins can be retriggered an infinite number of times.
Steinfest and Quest for Beer are live at all Microgaming powered Australian online casinos such as Casino Mate, Platinum Play and Royal Vegas. All of them are completely licensed and regulated gambling sites. If you want you can also play these games in the practice mode.
