Now that all the festivity of Christmas is over, it’s time to celebrate the New Year in style: with alcohol! The Quest for Beer online slot machine is just one of Lucky Nugget’s fantastic range of online slot games, but it’s perfect for getting in the celebratory mood. Join the marauding Vikings and find your flagons of beer.
Stoutly search the reels for beer
This slot’s primary theme is centered around a burly party of Vikings on the hunt for thirst-quenching beer. It’s an amusing and fun online slot, as well as being fairly simple to play. There are five reels to choose from, each of which has three rows of symbols for a total of 15 different spaces. Even better, there are 25 paylines to take advantage of – so you can bet on as few or many as you like. There are enough paylines to give you variety and a number of ways to win, which certainly adds to the excitement.
There’s a nice old-fashioned aesthetic to this slot, with the reels taking place on a piece of ragged parchment. In keeping with the Viking aesthetic, all the symbols are fairly easy to recognise too: there’s horned helped, barrels of beer, regal longships and thirsty soldiers with thick facial hair. There’s also a great sense of professionalism with the music: jaunty tunes provide a very cheerful backing track, and the slot has responsive sounds that help the experience to feel even more immersive.
Enjoy the intoxicating bonus features
Firstly, there’s the most common slot machine bonus feature: the wild symbol. A tankard of beer acts as the wild symbol, substituting for anything except the scatter symbol to help boost your payroll. It’s also a multiplier, so landing it within a combination can double wins in the blink of an eye.
If you’re looking for the scatter symbol, then it’s the blond Viking maiden who will help you out. If you find two or more of her then you’ll get a payout reward, while three or more will trigger a bonus game. It involves throwing axes at kegs of beer, giving you extra winnings which are multiplied by your original bet. There are five kegs: you can keep throwing axes till you hit an empty one, meaning there’s some variety in how much you’ll win each time. We wouldn’t recommend throwing axes after a few pints of beer — or ever — but it’s actually a great idea in this game!
Then there’s also a fun free spins feature available. If you can find the wild tankard on the middle three reels on the same spin then it’ll trigger 10 free spins with the chance of retriggering further spins. Additionally, all free spins have a 2x multiplie, making big wins more likely.
Finally, if you’re feeling brave like a Viking, there’s also a gamble feature. Correctly guess the colour of a card to double your wins, or select the right suit to quadruple it – but if you’re wrong, you lose it all.
Nothing will start off 2017 in style like drinking with your friends. Recreate the experience by playing the Quest for Beer slot by Microgaming, and party like a Viking!
