Celebrate Oktoberfest At Canadian Online Casinos

Oktoberfest is a European event and perhaps will not be celebrated much in Canada. However, players at Canadian online casinos would be conversant with Oktoberfest through some fantastic video slots. The festival actually begins in September and runs into October. All through the festival beer keeps flowing through the Bavarian region in Northern Europe. Also on offer are the choicest local delicacies like sauerkraut and pretzels.

Microgaming is a leading games supplier to Canadian online casinos like All Slots, Jackpot City and Spin Palace. It offers a number of beer themed online slots in its portfolio. The most suited for Oktoberfest is Steinfest. The high quality artwork brings the festivities to life. The bold and colourful symbols are designed in detail. The highest payouts are awarded by two waitresses. One of them carries beer mugs and the other carries beer steins. These symbols also pay out smaller amounts in mixed combinations. The other high paying symbols are accordion, drum and bugle that provide music during the Oktoberfest celebrations. In order to enhance the theme Microgaming does away with the usual playing card icons as the low paying symbols. Delicious Bavarian snacks are used instead. The pub is the wild symbol that appears stacked on the reels. The stein and the pub sign board are both scatter symbols. They award payouts multiplied by the total bet and also trigger the bonus features.

The first bonus is the free spins feature, which is triggered when three or more pub sign symbols appear anywhere on the reels in the same spin. You will be awarded 10 free spins in which all payouts are doubled. The wild symbol gets double stacked on the reels so it will appear more often. The free spins can be retriggered. The second feature is a bonus game on the second screen called the Beer Chug feature. It is triggered by landing three or more scattered beer stein symbols. You have to pick customers in the pub and win bonus credits. The number of picks awarded is equal to the number of bonus symbols in the triggering spin.

Steinfest is a five reels and three rows video slot with 9 selectable paylines. Both waitresses pay 2000 times the line bet for five like symbols in an active payline. Steinfest online slot will have variance on the higher side. The maximum line bet is $2.50 and the maximum total bet is $22.50. High rollers may not persist with this video slot once the Oktoberfest attraction has worn off.
