Overview Of Benny The Beer

Benny the Beer and all his friends invite you to join them on a foaming forest adventure, this cheerful beer keg awaits your arrival in this whimsical Stackways meets book gaming creation cloaked in signature Hacksaw visuals and oozing oodles of charm.

Slot Description

Benny The Beer is a 5 reel, 4 row slot with ways wins and the Stackways mechanic. The game has 2 versions of the Free Spin feature and that’s it! No over complicated features, just simple but effective mechanics. 


Land one of two types of Stackways symbols to cover that reel with identical symbols.

The Normal Stackways symbol can stack up to 4 rows high, and with the Revealing type, it’s possible to fill the entire reel, 10 symbols in length, with matching symbols.

The stacked symbol is chosen by the longest winning length of all wins present, and stacking only occurs if a win is possible after the stacking.

Kicking off with 10 Free Spins, the Book of Stackways bonus sees 2 pay symbols randomly selected to represent the Special symbols.

Should either of these land across 3 or more reels, they will duly stack up to 10 rows high in classic Book fashion according to the respective numbers displayed under each reel.

Should you manage a win with both Special symbols during the same spin, they will take it in turns to stack starting with the lesser value of the two.

Re-triggers are possible; 2 FS symbols gets you an extra 2 spins and 3 grants 4 more.

Catching 4 FS symbols at the same time upgrades the round to the SUPER BOOK OF STACKWAYS feature while awarding 4 additional spins on top of your remaining tally..

The SUPER BOOK OF STACKWAYS is triggered by 4 FS base game symbols landing at once, this round selects 4 pay symbols at random to be the Special symbols.

As in the previous bonus feature, whenever any of these symbols drop together across at least 3 reels, stacking will be performed in accordance with the values displayed at the bottom of the reels. When more than one Special symbol is stacked, they will stack one by one from the lowest paying symbol onwards.

Benny The Beer Paytable

The paytable in Benny The Beer is dynamic and changes with your stake, the example below is set to £/€1 per spin. We start with the low paying J’s, Q’s, K’s and A’s which all pay 0.70x stake for a full way, the Padlock’s pay 2x respectively. 

Moving onto the premium symbols we have the Alarm Clock which pay’s 2.20x stake, the Camera pays 2.50x, the Bomb pays 3x and the main character Benny pays 4x for a full way. This doesn’t sound a lot but bear in mind each symbol can be stacked up to 10 times per reel making up to 100,000 pay ways!

Final Thoughts On Benny The Beer

Benny The Beer has an RTP of 96.17%, the volatility is rated Medium and the maximum win is 10,000x stake. I would personally rate the volatility as Medium/High from my limited test play but Hacksaw Gaming’s rating is probably more accurate as it’s taken from millions of spins.

It’s a very clever game and like beer it’s rather moreish so careful with those feature spins! Overall it’s a slot I really enjoyed and would highly recommend.
