Bier Haus Oktoberfest is a six-reel, six-row slot machine designed by WMS. It is played with fifty paylines that cannot be turned on or off. Available special features include three progressive jackpots, persisting Wilds, free spins, Heidi’s Wheel and several other prizes.
The game looks quite nice, with the action taking place inside of an actual beer house. We can see large beer barrels in the background. Bright blue ribbons cover the ceiling, adding to the cheery mood. On the left side of the reels, we see Heidi in a traditional Oktoberfest getup. She is wonderfully animated and clicking or tapping on her will cause her to clap or pull back in surprise.
Symbol designs are quite varied, offering playing card suits, pretzels, green hats, tubas, accordions, and beer mugs. We also have Heidi’s beer house, Hans and an overflowing glass of beer! The glass is a Wild, and can substitute for almost any icon on the playing field. Heidi serves as a Scatter, and comes in three different variations. WMS colour coded them as green, purple and red Heidi to make them easier to differentiate.
Most people will play this release for one reason only: the progressive jackpots! They offer massive prizes, but ones that are never too out of reach. The developers added a cap by which the progressive jackpot has to hit. The bigger your wager is, the higher odds of winning the progressive jackpot are. Bier Haus Oktoberfest has a medium variance and an RTP of 96.18%, which is above the current slot average.
The minimum bet you can play on each spin is €0.18, which is a fantastic lowest possible bet considering we have 50 active paylines. Your maximum stake is €180 per spin. Use the plus and minus buttons to change your total stake. After you set it to your liking, you can spin the reels manually or use Auto Play and watch the rewards come pouring in.
Keep an eye out for purple Heidi Scatters. If they are present on the playing field when free spins are triggered, they transform into persistent Wilds on the first free spin. These Wilds will remain locked in place, and not move until the bonus ends. If any purple Heidi Scatters appear on the board when free spins are re-triggered, they also transform into persistent Wilds.
To activate free spins, players need to find at least five Heidi Scatters in adjacent reels. The game does not care which of the three Heidi Scatters are included to award free spins; any additional bonuses they bring are granted later. The maximum number of free spins is 100 extra turns, granted for landing twenty Scatters in adjacent positions. Players can retrigger free spins by drawing five or more Scatters. They are also guaranteed to win at least 50x during the bonus.
When a Red Heidi Scatter appears on reel four and activates a free spins round, Heidi’s Wheel is activated. The wheel can grant cash prizes, Hans spins, Bigger Mugs spins and additional free spins. Winning a cash prize also awards an extra wheel spin. It is possible to unlock Hans spins and Bigger Mugs spins at the same time. The wheel can award up to ten additional free spins.
Hans spins places up to ten Hans Wilds in random positions on the reel, except for those covered by persisting Wilds. They can also be activated randomly on every free spin. Bigger Mugs creates an overlaid Wild in the form of a beer mug. It covers multiple positions, and can occur randomly both during normal gameplay and special features.

Players can effectively unlock all bonuses without Heidi’s Wheel. It just gives us the option to have their activation guaranteed for the duration of free spins.
The jackpot amount is reset to a reseed value valued at 25% of the won amount. That means if the progressive jackpot was won at €100, the new progressive jackpot would start at €25.
Not accounting for progressive jackpots, the top prize possible is €250,000.
The largest possible win you can achieve on Heidi’s Wheel is 20,000x your total stake. This amount cannot exceed the €250,000 limit.
Unfortunately, Persisting Wilds can only land on the playing field during free spins.
