Octobeer Fortunes by Pragmatic Play takes much inspiration from Oktoberfest held annually in Germany, where millions of liters of beer is consumed in a 16 -18 day period. Whether you’re a beer fan or not, you get to experience all the fun of the world-famous German festival on these reels and hopefully get big wins at the same time!
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Played on 3 rows, 5 reels, and 20 paylines, this game has an RTP of 96.53%. Highly volatile Octobeer Fortunes can produce some huge wins, the maximum of which is capped at 4,500x the stake. The symbols here all help to reconstruct the feeling of being right there at the festival, including accordion, pretzel, stein, and beer barrel - the highest-paying symbol.
The gameplay of Octobeer Fortunes revolves a lot around the Money Collection feature. The Wild symbol is a waitress while money symbols are beer glasses, carrying a random value ranging from 0.5x to 50x the bet. If you land 1 Wild and money symbols on the same spin, the total money symbol value is multiplied by the number of wilds. To get to the bonus round, players need to collect at least 5 beer/money symbols.
The bonus game begins with 9 free spins and all existing money symbols are added to the total progressive value. This progressive feature lets each new money symbol build the total value up and every wild symbol collects all of it. Although you cannot retrigger the free spins round, you can buy it and even choose the number of starting money symbols. Be aware that every extra one past 5 will cost 10x more.
Octobeer Fortunes is far from the most unique slot in the Pragmatic Play portfolio. In fact, some people may recognize that the game is a reskin of Treasure Wild, another title from Pragmatic Play. But this doesn't take away all enjoyment of the slot.
For the atmosphere alone, Octobeer Fortunes is highly enjoyable: you do get a sincere feeling of having a good time with friends at the popular festival. Plus, the fact that wilds can collect money symbols right in the base game is such an underrated aspect of the slot. People seem to forget that this very mechanic is exclusive to the free spins feature of many other games. So, even though gameplay is not very original and a weird-sounding name, Octobeer Fortunes can still give you a banger experience!
