Coming off a week in which BGaming launched two new slot titles, the leading iGaming developer has not taken long to launch yet another. Following Forty Fruity Million and Wild Cash x9990 is Beer Bonanza, a new slot that is set to launch tomorrow!

The title gives a big clue about the theme of this new casino game. The world-famous and largest beer festival, Oktoberfest, is just around the corner. BGaming has created this engaging video slot to help celebrate that festival.

So aside from the reels containing symbols that represent different types of beer, what can you expect from beer Bonanza? Quite a lot, actually. For a start, there are no paylines in this title. Instead, you form wins when matching symbols land anywhere in view. A cascading symbols feature also gives you the chance to land multiple wins on any spin.

Plus, there is a lucrative free spins bonus that comes with bonus symbols that will offer multipliers of between 2x and 100x. Any wins that you land on the same spin as a multiplier will have their win value multiplied by that amount. I have enjoyed playing the demo version and cannot wait for the full version to hit the online casinos tomorrow. This title offers entertaining gameplay, a fun theme, and plenty of lucrative bonus features.

Highlights: Beer Bonanza is the latest release from BGaming and is themed on Oktoberfest. You play on a 5×6 reel format but without paylines. Instead, you win when symbols appear anywhere in view. You can also look forward to features including cascading symbols, free spins, multipliers, a buy bonus feature, and a Chance 2x feature. This slot carries a theoretical 95.84% RTP, top potential payout of 15,000x your stake, and a high variance/volatility.

Beer Bonanza Slot Gameplay & Bonus Features

BGaming’s Beer Bonanza is a title that we appeal because of its variety of bonus features and unique reel mechanic. The action takes place over a 5×6 grid system that does not offer paylines. Instead, you land wins whenever you land 8 or more matching symbols anywhere in view. This video slot also uses a cascading symbol feature that can lead to consecutive spins on any spin.

  • Symbols Pay Anywhere: You receive payouts when 8 or more matching symbols land anywhere in view.
  • Refilling Feature (Cascading Symbols): Winning symbols disappear, which allows new symbols to land in the vacated positions. This can create additional winning combinations.
  • Scatter Pays: Scatter symbols pay in any position when you land 4, 5, or 6. You will receive 3x, 5x, or 100x, respectively.
  • Free Spins: Those scatter symbols also trigger the free spins bonus feature. You will win 10, 20, or 30 free spins when you land 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols, respectively. You win an additional 5 free spins whenever you land 3+ scatter symbols during the free spins feature.
  • Bonus Symbols with Multipliers: During free spins, bonus symbols can land to increase a global multiplier of between 2x and 100x.
  • Buy Bonus: You can buy straight into the free spins feature for 100x your stake.
  • Chance 2x Feature: For an increased stake of 25% you earn 2x the chance of triggering the free spins feature.

Free Spins, Multipliers and a Buy Bonus

The free spins round offers you the best chance to pick up some good payouts and you can either try to trigger it manually or buy it outright. Depending on how many scatter symbols you land, you will receive 10, 20, or 30 free spins. The best part of free spins is the addition of bonus symbols with multipliers. When those symbols land, they will increase the global multiplier for that spin by between 2x and 100x. Those multipliers will apply to any payouts you receive on that spin. If you would rather gamble in return for triggering the bonus free spins, then you can use the buy feature mentioned in the bullet points above. Additionally, you can double your chances in return for 25% on top of your chosen stake.
