Roll out those barrels and get the beer flowing, because it’s time for a very European celebration. This Rival Gaming slot takes you into the heart of Bavaria for Oktoberfest, where barrels of ale will be on tap for paying customers, and plates of bratwurst with sauerkraut are being served to soak it all up. Roll Out the Barrels is a lesson in Bavarian culture – if Bavarian culture is all about lederhosen, home brewed ale, and accordions, of course.
The slot features a layout consisting of five reels and three rows, so everything is quite standard. Across this layout, Rival has also added 20 pay lines which you can easily customise if you so wish. Bets are also customisable, which is done by bringing up to 10 coins of a value between 1p and 25p into play per line. This means a maximum bet of £50 per spin is possible in the game.
Roll Out the Barrels also includes some wonderful graphics thanks to Rival Gaming’s hard working art team. Upon the reels, you’ll see a pretzel, a plate of food, lederhosen, a green hat with a feather in it and a cuckoo clock. It’s the green hat which is able to provide a maximum pay-out of 500x your stake during base gameplay.
What would Oktoberfest be without people to celebrate it? That’s potentially why the jackpot symbol is the traditionally dressed Bavarian man who already looks like he’s had his fill of beer.
As a jackpot symbol though, he can provide you with some wonderful pay-outs whenever two or more come into view. Should five of them show up your wager is multiplied by 2,000x over.
A slot about barrels of beer wouldn’t be the same if it didn’t actually have any barrels of beer would it? Well, fortunately, it’s the beer barrel that works as the slot’s expanding wild symbol in this game. Therefore, wherever it appears it will count as one of the standard symbols, helping you with forming wins.
Should it be possible to create wins on other pay lines, the barrel will expand to cover the entirety of the column it’s on. In the game, wilds are only able to appear on reels one, two and three.
There’s also the addition of a free spins icon in the game, which is represented by the man playing the alphorn (or Alpine horn). You’ll need to spin three or more of this symbol into view in order for the free spins round to begin. A total of 15 free spins will be granted for three of these appearing, while 25 free spins are handed over for four of them. You’ll get the maximum of 50 free spins for five free spins scatters showing up.
During this feature round, you’ll get the added benefit of the expanding wild providing you with a double multiplier if it should contribute to a win. Additionally, if you spin three or more of the free spins scatters into view while the round is in-play, you’ll activate the Tap the Keg round.
Tap the Keg
If you do manage to spin three or more of the free spins scatter symbols into view while free spins are in operation, then the Tap the Keg bonus feature begins. As with the original free spins trigger, you’ll receive 15, 25, or 50 Tap the Keg spins, depending upon how many scatters activated it. The expanding wild multiplier also increases throughout this feature to 3x. During this round, you also stand the opportunity of triggering the Barmaid Bonus Round.
Barmaid Bonus – While the Tap the Keg round is in-play, you will see barmaid symbols come into operation. You’ll need to ensure that three or more of this one appear anywhere to activate the Barmaid Bonus Round. This feature allows you to further enhance you win balance by playing through an extra bonus round.
Roll Out the Barrels has such a compelling theme behind it that it would be very difficult not to be entertained by it. Rival Gaming further enhances that with the wonderful graphics that can be found in the slot, while the special features add a sense of expectation. Overall, this game brings something unique and exciting to the Rival catalogue.
