Bierhaus: My Opinion
The Bierhaus slot from WMS is innovative. It's a bit of G+ Deluxe, a bit of 5x4 and a bit of something new. It took me a little while to appreciate it and while it runs a bit slow on my PC compared to other WMS slots like the excellent Spartacus
or my favourite Bruce Lee slot
, it became a "go-to" game for me for quite some time.
The keys to the game are the fact it has stacked wilds (and other symbols) plus you can get up to 80 free games with a few sticky wilds thrown in for good measure depending on the colour of the triggering symbols. Watch the video and you'll see me trigger 10 free spins with 2 sticky wilds (these crop up when the purple Frauleins appear in the triggering pattern).
You do have to get these Fraulein triggers from left to right on the reels, and you need 5 or more to start the free spins. For every extra Fraulein trigger over 5, you get 5 more free spins.
I've not yet hit anything more than 100x on Bierhaus - yet - but it's a game that keeps you immersed more than many other recent slot games. It's one of those where the balance between entertainment and winning is close to what you want. Not as perfect as on Thunderstruck
by Microgaming or Great Blue
by Playtech or even the Colossal Reels games like Spartacus, Giants Gold
but Bierhaus isn't far off being a great game. If only it ran a bit faster.
If you like Bierhaus then you should also check out Black Knight 2
which combines the look and feel of the WMS 5x4 games such as this with the excellent feature of Black Knight
with it's sticky stacked wilds.
