Steinfest Slots

SteinfestSteinfest seems to be an Oktoberfest themed slot machine, a game where Microgaming uses a lot of men in traditional German clothing, beautiful beer maidens, lots of German foods and there is also the beer of course. The game seems like it’s a lot of fun, the design making sure of that, along with the bonus game which takes you to a beer chugging contest. It’s not the first or the last slot to offer a view of Oktoberfest, but its design is so good that it’s clearly one of my favorites.

Steinfest has 5 reels and on them up to 9 paylines may be activated. A $5,000 top jackpot can be had, while the available features include beer chugging bonus games, free spins, multipliers, scatter symbols and stacked wilds.

Features of Steinfest

The stacked wilds are one part that is impressive about this game, the scatter and bonus symbols make up the rest, along with the free spins, multipliers and bonus games which can be activated when they show up.

The Steinfest Logo, with an image of a Bavarian House behind it, will act as the wild symbol in this game. What you will definitely enjoy about it is the fact that it comes in stacked on all the reels. You get the chance to have up to three wilds on a reel, so your odds of getting paid increase considerably. There are also much better odds of getting the wild during the free spins, since the symbols are double stacked. However, the wild doesn’t give you its own prizes, so you shouldn’t expect the jackpot to come from it.

Now, for the two scatter symbols. One of them shows you a Beer Keg and is marked Scatter, the other has a Beer Mug and it’s marked with Bonus. Both are scatter symbols, and both of them give you access to an additional feature and to a prize. The prize is in both cases offered for two to five symbols, with the value being 1x to 50x the round’s wager.

Free Games Feature

If you trigger the free spins, it means that you’ve landed 3 or more scattered Beer Kegs. Your reward will consist in 10 spins for free, with all the wins being doubled while this feature is active.


You also have double stacked wilds, meaning that they have six symbols instead of three. You have much better odds of getting a full reel of wilds this way.

Beer Chug Bonus

The slot’s most interesting feature is definitely the Beer Chug round. You need between three and five Beer Mug bonus icons on the reels, and it will start if those requirements are met.


You have to pick from among the patrons that are sitting at tables. You have as many picks as there were triggering bonus symbols. The patrons you choose will drink beer, and then will reveal how much you’ve won.

Betting options and jackpots

The line wager starts at $0.01 and can end up as high as $2.50. 1 to 10 coins are used if the line is active, with denominations between $0.01 and $0.25. When all the lines get the maximum bet, you can spend up to $22.50 per spin.

The beer maiden will deliver payouts of up to 2,000x, with 20,000 coins being up for grabs. That’s up to $5,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The designers made sure that Steinfest is all about the famous beer drinking holiday, which starts each September and lasts for a couple of weeks. There are no non-related icons here, only plates of food, beer mugs, beer maidens and Bavarian men in lederhosen. The image in the background is with one of the bars where the drinking takes place.


Symbols: Steinfest Logo (wild), Beer Keg (scatter, 50x bet), Beer Mug (bonus, 50x bet), Beer Maiden with steins (2,000x), Beer Maiden with mugs (2,000x), Man with accordion (600x), Man with drum (400x), Man with tuba (200x), Turkey (100x), Ham (90x), Bratwurst (80x), Brat Dog (70x) and Pretzel (60x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a game that will be appreciated by a lot of men, as long as they’re beer drinkers. Oktoberfest is a festival that a lot of people want to attend at some point, and this slot can be a way to enjoy it until then.

Steinfest can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
