Red Tiger focus primarily on slots games but do offer a few table games, albeit a very limited range of them.

Lucky Oktoberfest is a 5 reel slot that is 3 symbols high. The game uses paylines, with 10 in total, playing from left to right.
The Lucky Oktoberfest slot has all the trappings you would expect from an Oktoberfest themed slot. The steins are overflowing, the Oom-pah band are in full swing, the pretzels are ready, the lederhosen dusted off and buxom beer serving barmaids are ready with your order.
Bier Symbols – The Bier symbols can only appear on reels 1 and 5. If you can land one on each of those reels at the same time then you will fill the reels with beer, that will then disappear and leave behind the same matching symbol, which should ensure you have a winning spin.
Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol will only land on reels 1, 3 and 5. If you can land 3 at once you will trigger the Free Spins feature. If you land 1 or more but less than 3 in a single round, those Free Spins symbols will lock in place to give you another chance to trigger the feature.
Free Spins – If you manage to trigger the Free Spins feature you will be given 10 Free Spins in total. During the feature, if you land a Hans symbol on reel 1, along with a Bier or a Helga on reel 5, then you will increase the multiplier that is available during the feature by 1. If you land a Helga on reel 5, with a Bier or a Hans on reel 1 then you will be awarded additional Free Spins.
The Oktoberfest themed slot is one that tends to be very hot or miss. The fact that this one has been released in December is a little confusing, and might mean we need to wait until next year to see if it can gain any popularity. The slot looks OK, the symbols are well-designed, but the background is pretty basic. You get Free Spins that can come with an increasing multiplier and you can increase the number of Free Spins that you have been given. You get, what is essentially, a randomly triggered Mystery symbol feature but you do not get any Wilds. The house edge is too high, and as such we wouldn’t recommend you rush out to play this one.
