If you haven’t yet been to the world-famous Oktoberfest, software developer WMS will offer you that opportunity without you having to leave the comfort of your home. Heidi’s Bier Haus will cater to both fans of all things Germanic and beer lovers alike. You will find yourself in a traditional pub in Southern Germany, facing a waitress in good old-fashioned Bavarian attire. She will be serving your drinks tonight – straight from the tap. You will notice that each of the taps leads straight down to a reel, where all your other Bavarian-themed symbols are. Be sure to keep the sound on for the pleasant soundtrack that fits surprisingly well with the theme.
But moving onto the technical aspects of this offering, you’ll notice the layout boasts 6 reels and 6 rows, and it comes with a total of 50 active paylines. These are fixed, by the way, and you won’t have the chance to regulate or adjust them. As much as we’d like to say that the bets here won’t be as steep as the payline number implies, they’re actually steeper. Yes, this is by no means a cheap online slot game and the minimum bet will set you back a pricy 75p per spin. The maximum possible wager amount, though, isn’t at all that high at only £45 per single spin.
Besides the features we’ve covered below, Heidi’s Bier Haus also comes with its very own random feature. This is the Tapper Feature, which can randomly take place at any point during gameplay. As a result, it will turn anywhere between 1 and all 6 reels fully Wild.
Stein of Beer
Look out for the pint of beer as that is the game’s Wild symbol. It’s also among the most lucrative icons on the reels, and it will be able to land just about in any position. Furthermore, it can actually appear in full reel stacks, too. More importantly, the Wild has the capacity to substitute for all other symbols except the three Heidi Scatters.
The Heidi Scatters come in three different colors: Red, Green and Purple. Red Heidi will only be able to land on reel 4. The Heidi symbols will be responsible for triggering this game’s Freespins feature, and to do this you will have to land a minimum of 5 Scatters on adjacent reels, beginning from the leftmost reel. As a result, you will receive anywhere between 5 and 100 free spins depending on how many Scatters you landed.
We mentioned Red Heidi landing on reel 4 and this is no coincidence. You will want to land her on a triggering spin, because then she can award you Heidi’s Wheel Bonus. This wheel will give you the opportunity to win another spin or 1 of the 4 available jackpots. The most lucrative of these is of course Heidi’s Jackpot, which can grant you a whopping 5,333x your stake. The other options of the wheel include extra free spins and Hans Spins. Hans Spins are spins during which you get Hans Wilds on the reels.
For every Purple Heidi that helped trigger the Freespins feature you will receive one Sticky Wild. Then finally, players also get the chance to retrigger this feature again by landing 5 or more Scatters.
Heidi’s Bier Haus is a different kind of slot game. It has its own layout, its own structure and a rather complex bonus feature. But for what it’s worth, it has a guaranteed win from each bonus round, so that’s something. All in all, it’s an attractive offering with good sized prizes in store, but it certainly isn’t going to appeal to every player.
