Enjoy a stein of lager in a Bavarian beer garden in Heidi and Hannah’s Bier Haus. Created by WMS, it’s a 6 reel, 50 payline video slot that comes with wild reels, replacement symbols and a bonus round that can award up to 100 free spins (initially) with wild extras. There’s also a bonus wheel where 4 jackpot prizes can be won. Play on all devices from between 18p and £180 per spin.
There’s a cartoon feel to the design here. The setting is the garden of a traditional Bier Haus. On the reels you’ll see playing card suit symbols as well as a collection of more Teutonic-themed images. They include a pretzel, a green felt hat, a tuba, an accordion, a tankard, a traditional house and Hans, sporting a fine pair of lederhosen. The giant stein of lager is the wild. This substitutes for all the standard symbols.
Above each reel you’ll see a beer tap. On any spin these taps can open and fill the reel below full of beer and in the process turn it wild. Anywhere between 1 and 6 reels can turn wild on any spin. Look out too for special replacement symbols. Specific scatter and wild replacement symbols appear on different reels. The scatters include Heidi and Hannah who can appear as singles or combined as well as Hans blowing his horn.
The main feature is the Free Spins Bonus feature. It’s triggered by landing 5 or more scatters from left to right on adjacent reels on the same spin. The minimum allocation is 5 free spins. Land the maximum though and you can look forward to 100 free spins.
Heidi and Hannah can appear on green, red and purple symbols. The added extras on offer depend on these colours. These include sticky wilds that remain in play for the whole round, wild reels and floating wilds. You could also get a spin of the Bonus Wheel. This can award 1 of 4 potential jackpot prizes (worth up to 1,111 times your bet) as well extra free spins or Hans Spins where up to 10 extra wilds are in play on each one.
Heidi and Hannah’s Bier Haus is a jolly video slot. The colourful visuals are bright and bold and there’s a classic oompah backing track playing in the background. The features aren’t bad either. Working out exactly what’s going on is pretty difficult though. The paytable reads like the video slots equivalent of War and Peace. All you really need to know though is that if you trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature, you’ll pocket at least 50 times your bet.
If your idea of a great holiday is the Munich Oktoberfest, then Heidi and Hannah’s Bier Haus could be the game for you. Being honest, WMS has produced much better video slots like Enchanted Kingdom and Battleship Direct Hit.
