New Spinomenal Online Slot Game: Spinning Beers
Spinomenal may not be a household name, but for those in the online casino world, it is a common name. The company has developed more than 100 HTML5 games, with more released each month. Its latest release is a unique one called Spinning Beers, just in time for Oktoberfest.
A Bit of a Break from the Norm
Scrolling through the impressive list of Spinomenal slot games shows quite a lot of fantastical titles and themes. The Book of Tribes, 4 Horsemen, Book of Rebirth, Story of Hercules, Majestic King, and African Fortune take players into mythical settings for unique experiences. The most famous of them, Demi Gods, has been such a hit with online casino players that it has released four versions thus far, Demi Gods IV as the latest.
Of course, Spinomenal also releases fun titles like Penny Fruits and Summer of Luck. Clearly, the developers love a theme.
Game developers also love holiday-based games. Hallow Reels for Halloween, Arctic Adventures for the December holidays, Wild Santa, Year of the Rat, and Spinoween.
Last year, Spinomenal released Oktober Spin Fest to celebrate Oktoberfest. Players enjoyed the 5×4 slot with its 100 paylines and stacked wilds. So, they created a new version to honor the Bavarian tradition of Oktoberfest: Spinning Beers.
Chief Commercial Officer Nir Ronen noted that there is a dedicated promotion along with the game. And it fits into a larger strategy that will carry on through the holidays. “It is the first shot that announces the grand opening of our yearly holiday marathon,” Ronen said, “which will include promising themed game slots and some more exciting network promotions.”
Spinning Beers Overview & Payouts
Like its predecessor, Spinning Beers focuses on beer and pretzels but provides quite a few fun features. It is a 5×4 slot “dedicated to the best beer party in the world.”
The game offers 10 up to 100 betways and a 95.8% RTP (return-to-player).
The maximum win is 3,000x the total bet. Speaking of bets, the minimum is $0.10 for 10 lines. The combinations are then up to the players, as bets max out at $1,000 for 100 lines.
When playing the very minimum bet, the payouts for each symbol with five on a payline are:
- German Alpine hat = $10
- Hops (green and leafy ingredient) = $6.00
- Pretzel = $1.20
- Bratwurst = $1.20
- A or K = $0.40
- Q or J = $0.20
The Bavarian woman is the Wild of the game and substitutes for all symbols except the Free Spin scatter.
Spinning Beers Gameplay & Features
As mentioned, the Wild is a feature, but in Spinning Beers, players can hit a Stacked Wild. The Bavarian woman symbol then expands to take up an entire reel. During the bonus round of free spins, one Stacked Wild will appear on a random reel for each spin.
Speaking of free spins, there is one primary way to get earn them. The scatter symbol, which is a beer mug that reads “Free Spins” must appear in at least three spots on the grid. Players can win 10 spins on up to 100 free spins via this feature.
- 3 scatters = 10 free spins
- 4 scatters = 25 free spins
- 5 or more scatters = 100 free spins
Most online slot games cap the number of spins at 10 or less, so the ability to win up to 100 free spins is very rare and exciting.
When the required number of scatters appear, the beer mugs spin – the name of the game – and the player then proceeds to the bonus spins.
The trend in today’s Aussie online casinos is to provide a way for players to get to bonus rounds more quickly. Instead of spinning until the required scatters trigger the free spins, the “Buy” feature allows players to buy their way into the free spins.
The amount of the “Buy” is based on the amount of the bet and number of lines. Players can modify those numbers for the free spins they want to purchase, and that will determine the cost of the free spins. Players can then decide whether or not they believe the free spins will be worth the price.
Where to Play Spinning Beers
Players interested in trying Spinning Beers can try the game for free – for play-credits only – on the Spinomenal website.
One of the great things about this opportunity is the ability to see all of the features. Since there is no real money at stake, players can use the pull-down tab called “Features” above the grid and choose a feature to see how it works. Click on “All Spots” to see what the payout would be if the same symbol lands on all spots. Click on “Wilds” to see how that payout will look. This is available for free spin options as well.
