First impressions of Heidi and Hannah's Bier Haus
Even if your knowledge of the German language is non-existent, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Bier Haus translates into Beer House. The Germans really, really love their beer, to the extent that they have an entire annual festival dedicated to it for a couple of weeks in October. It’s known as Oktoberfest, and although Germans like to claim that it’s dedicated to folk music, everyone knows it’s really about the beer!
In celebration of this annual tradition, Heidi has moved the festivities of her Bier Haus outside. And she’s recruited the assistance of her dark-haired friend, Hannah, to help out with the expected crowds, flocking to sample the traditional brews on offer.
As was the case with Heidi’s Bier Haus, the game which precedes this one, the reels themselves are surprisingly small, with the majority of screen space given over to the garden. This wouldn’t matter quite so much for a five-reel pokie perhaps, but this is a six-reel, six-row game. And there are 12 base symbols, including the Wild, plus 10 additional Scatters, so that’s a lot of information to put across in a relatively small space.
As with all the other games in the Bier Haus series, the backing track is a mix of general bar chatter accompanied by a equally traditional Oompah band. Whether or not you enjoy that type of music is a matter of personal taste, but if it’s simply too much for you, look for the Settings symbol at the bottom of your screen, which gives you an opportunity to mute it.
What is the RTP of Heidi and Hannah's Bier Haus?
Heidi and Hannah’s Bier Haus has a stated RTP of 96.15%, so players can rest assured that it’s a perfectly fair and legitimate pokie game. For those not sure what RTP is all about, it represents the amount of money that is returned back to players. So in this case, for every $100.00 that players wager, the game pays out $96.15. But keep in mind that this statistic is reached after collecting several weeks’ worth of player data, and actual results vary widely.
What is the volatility of Heidi and Hannah's Bier Haus?
Apparently, Heidi and Hannah’s Bier Haus is rated as being of medium to high volatility, but our playing experience tended more towards high volatility. If you’re not sure what that means, you need a quick crash course in pokie volatility, as it’s essential to play games that suit your attitude towards risk.
Low-volatility games pay out very frequently, so you get the reward of winning, but the sums of money involved are usually quite minor. But these games are perfect if you’re just starting out on your pokie journey, if you don’t much like risk, or if you don’t have a huge gaming budget.
High-volatility games, on the other hand, rarely pay out, but when the symbols do line up in your favour, the rewards can be huge. High rollers are irresistibly drawn towards these types of games, and they have the bankrolls to support them through the long periods when nothing crops up on the reels.
Medium-volatility games aim to offer the best of both worlds, with a mixture of occasional, big wins, interspersed with plenty of lower-value cash prizes. It’s usually fairly easy to spot the volatility of a game by looking at its wagering range. The higher it goes, the more likely it is that the game is aimed at high-risk, high-stakes players.
Whether Heidi and Hannah’s Bier Haus is medium-to-high or just plain high volatility, it’s worth taking the time to play the game in demo mode before risking your own cash at an online casino.
How to play Heidi and Hannah's Bier Haus
Fifty fixed paylines mean that players only have to decide how much to stake with each spin. Your options range between $0.18 - $180.00, so every type of player should be able to find their sweet spot. The aim is to spin up three or more matching symbols across one of the 50 paylines, with the first example occurring on reel 1, followed by at least two further matches on adjacent reels.
The Wild foaming beer tankard can substitute for any of the other base symbols, although it can’t stand in for any of the Scatters. But with every appearance, it holds the possibility of helping to create a winning line for you. And like all of the other base symbols, the Wild can appear stacked, bringing you even more chances to win.
Heidi and Hannah’s Bier Haus extra features and Free Spins
A randomly-triggered feature sees the ladies fill up one or more of the reels with beer, making it a temporary Wild Reel. But this game is really all about the Free Spins, with the chance to win up to 100 of them. To trigger Free Spins, you’ll need to spin up five or more Scatters onto the reels. The more you spin, the more Free Spins you’ll receive, and if you’re fortunate enough to spin up 20, you’ll receive the maximum amount. Depending on which Scatters you land, you’ll also receive guaranteed wins, the chance to spin the Bonus Wheel, or claim extra Wilds. You could even win one of the four jackpot prizes!
