There’s not much that we Brits love more than a pint of beer at the pub. It’s more than just the drink. It’s where families have gathered for Sunday lunch for decades; it’s where strangers have become friends, tales have been told, broken hearts mended, and new loves met. It’s rainy evenings before a fire or warm afternoons in the beer garden.
Whether it’s old-school ale, creamy stout, crisp Pilsner, traditional lager, or a citrusy Indian pale ale, beers of all shapes, sizes and tastes are loved worldwide. Every country has a cherished brew, from Chibuku in Zimbabwe and Asahi in Japan to the Victorian Bitter in Australia and Cerveza Polar in Venezuela.
That’s why we want to celebrate International Beer Day by offering some of the finest beer-themed online slots in the UK. Let’s take a quick look at the history of International Beer Day and our best slots online that you can play to celebrate.
What is International Beer Day?
International Beer Day hasn’t been around for all that long and was only founded in 2007. Originally started in Santa Cruz, United States, the day was declared to celebrate brewing and appreciation for all those involved in the making of the amber fluid.
From rather humble beginnings, it’s now celebrated in over 200 cities and 50 countries. Festivals take place across the globe on Beer Day, with brewing demonstrations, tastings of rare or new beers, and more.
Beer-themed slots at The Phone Casino
If you’re looking to play online slots this Beer Day, why not settle in with the following beer-theme casino games.
Beer Barrel Bash
If there’s one nation that’s known for its outrageously festive beer celebrations, it’s got to be Germany. And the soundtrack for Beer Barrel Dash will transport you straight to Oktoberfest, with a serenade from a traditional Oompah band on offer.
So, strap on your lederhosen and get on down to the bierkeller for an exceptional beer-themed slots game. The reels are brightly coloured and reveal a whole host of Oktoberfest symbols such as lager, bratwurst, a tasty pretzel, an accordion, a Tyrolean hat, and a number of the renowned bierkeller hostess too.
It’s a five-reel slot that has four rows, 80 fixed paylines, and a tempting RTP (return to player) of 96.5%. The locking wilds are the standout feature for this game and they are represented by a stein of beer. They can substitute for all other symbols other than the scatter and can deliver 15-of-a-kind wins. Wilds are locked in place when they land and upgrade with each spin. If you manage to get three steins of beer, you could be looking at a whopping 40,000 coins maximum win.
Heidi at the Oktoberfest
Given the name of the slot, you’d be forgiven for thinking it is set at Oktoberfest. However, Heidi at Oktoberfest is actually set in an old antiquated German tavern. It is designed to be an old-school slot machine sat in amongst benches with food, gloriously large tankards of ale, barrels of booze, and stained glass windows.
The symbols themselves are a little more recognisable, with a few different versions of Heidi the Oktoberfest host posing with a variety of ales, barrels, tankards for toasting, an old pub, an accordion, huge platters of sausages, pretzels, and more.
The game has six rows, six reels, 25 fixed paylines, and an RTP of 94.9%. While it may be a little thin on the ground in terms of features, it makes up for that with the amount you can win on the base game. The foaming stein of beer is the highest paying symbol and if you land six of these across the reels, you will win 120x your original wager.
Five or more Heidi symbols on the reels will trigger five free spins, which can be increased to a maximum of 200. Every Heidi that is triggered in the round will turn into a wild and replace all symbols except the scatter. These stay in place during your free spins and hugely increase your chances of forming a lucrative winning combination.
If it’s tasty Bavarian food, a smorgasbord of beer, and jolly oompah tunes you’re after, then you certainly can’t go wrong with Bier Party. The reels are set in a gorgeous little town with cobblestone streets, beer barrels, wooden houses, and people on their way to a beer festival. The game has an RTP of 94.01%, as well as five reels and three rows.
On the reels, you’ll find a random assortment of beer-related symbols, as well as some traditional food items from the area. As expected, there are a couple of hostesses with steins of beer on offer, some pretzels, foaming beer mugs, an accordion, a plate of chicken and potatoes, and a radish.
The free spins feature is the most rewarding one and is triggered by three accordions landing on reels two, three, and four. You’ll then get to choose between three types of bonus rounds. In the Bier Guzzling bonus round, barrels will appear on the reels and if enough land, they will trigger the Bier Guzzling mini-game. This is where you wait to see how many of the rewarding beer mug symbols land on your screen and award you cash.
Then there’s the Smash Hit bonus round, where mallet symbols land and increase every symbol’s multiplier value by one.
In the Food Fest bonus round, pretzel wilds can land on reel five and expand horizontally to take up the whole row, turning them all into wilds and increasing your chances of landing a winning combination.
