Intro: Game Theme
Is there a beer lover from the world that has not heard of Oktoberfest? This German festival attracts thousands of visitors every year. It offers delicious local cuisine, beautiful women in tradition dress and of course, beer! This was the inspiration behind Gamomat’s 2019 slot, simply titled Beer Party. If you think you have what it takes to chug with the best, then you should definitely check it out. The person who handles their ale best will win an amazing prize!
You can tell the developers spent a lot of time perfecting the visuals. All the focus was placed on the playing field itself. You can see some fancy decorations above the reels themselves. The board looks like it is made out of wood, which adds to the atmosphere the game wants to create. As you spin the reels, you can hear cheerful Oktoberfest music playing. A huge upgrade in comparison to the physical machine sounds earlier releases by this developer used to make. Part of what sells the theme so well are the great symbol designs and their animations. Not all icons have them, but the ones that do look incredible!

How it Works
Beer Party is played on a five-reel board with ten fixed paylines. This means punters cannot remove individual paylines manually. The only way to change your wager is to press the plus and minus buttons on the Total Bet button. Wins are formed when three or more identical symbols are collected following an active payline. A winning combination must start with the leftmost reel; otherwise, the game will not register it. Gamomat’s control panel remains unchanged in this slot, remaining bright and colourful as always! Using it, you can change your wager, set up Auto Play and spin the reels. Above the reels, you can turn sound on or off and open the paytable and settings. You can bet between £0.10 and £100.00 on each spin of the reels.
What makes this game as good as it is visually are the icon designs. There are no generic symbols in this title: all of them fit with the Oktoberfest theme. Low value icons include radishes, onions, and pretzels. Meanwhile, higher value symbols are two traditional German dishes, a chocolate heart, and a blonde woman holding two beer mugs. While all of these icons look fantastic, the real star of the show is this release’s sole special symbol. The beer mug is a Scatter, and you will always be happy to see it anywhere. Partially for great it looks, and partially because it gives you access to a rewarding and simple special feature.
The Beer icon is a Scatter, meaning it pays from any position. As long as you have three or more of them in any position on the board, you can score a win. The more fields are covered in Beer Scatters, the higher the reward is. Using this bonus, you can win the highest possible prize in Beer Party! You just need to get lucky enough to land a full screen of Scatters. All we can say is good luck!
Alongside Scatter wins, you have access to two Gamble special features. The first Gamble tasks you with correctly guessing the colour of the facedown card. If you guess right, you win and can keep going. Guessing wrong results in a loss. The second Gamble takes place on a ladder. Your win is placed somewhere on it, while the slot alternates between highlighting a bet value above and below it. The goal is to catch it going up! However, losing does not end the ladder gamble. It only ends when you hit zero, or cash out. In both cases, you can wager all of your winnings or only half at once.
Part of what makes Gamomat games fun is that they never stop iterating. They are willing to break the traditional way we approach our favourite titles, and we love that. The absence of other special features might have scared off other developers, but not them. It just makes this release that much more memorable! With fantastic visuals, top tier animations and great rewards, Beer Party is guaranteed to charm you. It helps that it comes with an above average RTP at 96.10% and has a 1000x jackpot! If you enjoy simple, good-looking slots, then you should definitely try this one out!
