Noch ein Bier, bitte! Oktoberfest is among us and we’re heading to Germany for the world’s biggest Volksfest. You’ll need to brush up on your German if you’re to impress the jovial Faulin Greta, in Greta Goes Wild Slot.
The developer behind this one is iSoftBet, an online and mobile Casino Software Provider who’s gaming suit provides world-renowned content, like Euphoria, Hot Shots 2, Fu Fortunes Megaways and many more New Slots, as well as an impressive variety of table games.
Imagination and quality is something regularly seen from the provider, and we’re interested to see what features the beautiful Bavarian Greta has in store.
Hopefully you’re going into this one a little less inebriated than you would be at the actual Oktoberfest, but relish the theme and embody the culture nonetheless. The question remains, will the next round be on you?
Or will you be saying Auf Wiedersehen to your balance? Let’s find out what Greta Goes Wild has to offer.
The good times are rolling in Greta Goes Wild Slot. The game is featured within a classic looking Bavarian pub with music to match. Kegs are seen to the left of the right and the bar to the right.
All in all, it looks as if a lot of work has gone into the design, both visuals and audio, to make it an authentic Oktoberfest experience. Forget the pints and grab yourself a Stein. Every now and then you’ll see Greta herself, ample highly animated assets and all…
Betting options cover a wide enough array to please most players. Bets start from as little as £0.10, and go as high as £10. Realistically, these options cater to 99.9% of players, but high rollers might be out of luck if your usual option is somehow above the max stake.
As far as symbols go, Greta is both the top symbol and a Wild, paying 100x for a line of 5. Next top symbol is the ‘Greta Goes Wild’ symbol, and after that you have the Bavarian Man, Keg, Bavarian Hat, Pretzel, Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9.
It’s worth noting that the Greta Wild can also have multipliers of either 2x or 3x, but only during the bonus.
Mechanically, Greta Goes Wild Slot is pretty simple working on a more classic pay line system. There are 10 pay lines in total, and wins are calculated when 3 or more matching symbols sit consecutively along any of these 10 lines.
Pretty simple right? It’s bound to appeal more to people who appreciate that kind of classic way of playing than those who live and breathe for the quirky, complicated features and pay way mechanic.
Your best chance at a big win is landing Greta in a line, and as mentioned, 5 of her in a line will pay 100x, so there’s definitely something to play for.
During any spin, the ‘Oh Greta’ feature can appear. This will either guarantee a Bonus or a Big win. As welcome as a Big Win is, you’ll obviously be wanting that Bonus Feature. Big wins are calculated as wins that exceed 25x the current stake.
3, 4 or 5 Scatter Symbols anywhere in view will award 10, 12 or 15 Free Spins respectively.
During the bonus, any Wild that lands will become sticky for the duration of the Free Games. Whenever 2 Wild Symbols land on the same reel, both of them will become 2x Multipliers.
When 3 land on the same reel, they’ll become 3x Multipliers. Landing a Wild at least once on each reel will award 2 extra Free Spins. The bonus sounds extremely similar to the one seen in Dead or Alive 2 Bonus High Noon Saloon, almost identical in fact.
The only caveat is, 2 or more Wild Multipliers appearing on the same reel will only calculate the win based off of one of the multipliers in the line, rather than them all, and if they differ in value, it’ll use the highest multiplier.
Sadly, this means it has nowhere near the potential that High Noon Saloon has, but Wilds appear a lot more often than they do in that massively volatile game.
Greta Goes Wild Slot is a charming nod to Bavarian culture and Oktoberfest as a whole, and is a fun and interesting game that can lead to massive wins of up to 8,000x your current stake.
For this you’ll of course want Greta to live up to her name and go wild in the bonus, appearing on every reel with extra to get that multiplier up. It’s just a shame that it’ll only use one multiplier on the line to calculate the win rather than them all.
This doesn’t render Wilds on the reels to the right useless though, at the end of the day a Wild will cover a position on one of the 10 pay lines and will act as a connector as you hope for a line of symbols.
Greta Goes Wild Slot isn’t a game changer by any means, but it has potential, and lots of it, and it’s fun, which is what it’s all about.
This Slot is available to play at most Online Casinos now!
