Slotfather Slot Review
Setting the Scene
Take your place at the Slotfather’s table. You’ve earned the privilege of joining the Slotfather and his companions, Fat Tony, Frankie the Fixer and Sammy Quick Fingers, but you’ve still got to prove yourself. The Slotfather has built an empire based on placing slot machines in business establishments all over the city: now it’s up to you to see if you can win a jackpot by bringing in some earnings for the Slotfather. In the bonus round, you must choose three venues in which to place the Slotfather’s prized slot machines – choose well and the Slotfather will offer you a jackpot you can’t refuse. Now it’s time to get spinning – welcome to The Family.
The symbols in this 3D mafia-themed slot from Betsoft Gaming demonstrate great attention to detail. In scenes reminiscent of the “old country,” iconic images from mob movies and mafia tales decorate the reels: a map of Italy, fine cigars, plates of tasty spaghetti and meatballs, a tommy gun, a newspaper with headlines about a mob hit, as well as vintage cars, are just some of the symbols you’ll find on the reels alongside the Slotfather himself and his associates. The animations in the symbols are clever and entertaining: the cigar end glows as if someone where inhaling on it; the car pulls up and mob members shot out the windows; Sammy Quick Fingers’ suitcase full of cash opens up and he pulls some green dollar bills out of it.
Wagers and jackpots
The Slotfather is a 30-payline game that gives you the chance to bet up to 5 credits per line. Wagering amounts range from coins worth 0.05 to 1.00 in whichever currency you play in for real money. The maximum jackpot is 1,000 coins for 5 Frankie the Fixer symbols on an active payline. The smallest jackpot is 25 coins for two car symbols on an active payline. Of course, you have to playing for real money if you hope to win any.
Bonus Rounds and Features
Whether you play for fun or for real cash, you’ll enjoy the Slotfather’s special features and interactive bonus rounds. There are four special features:
- The Slotfather Bonus Round – This interactive round is triggered by three Slotfather symbols on an active payline. You’ll be transported to a city where you have to choose three business locations in which the Slotfather will place his slots. The total money you earn for the Slotfather will be added to your winnings. Once you’ve completed your assignment, you’ll be taken back to the Slotfather’s Italian restaurant hang-out to receive his praise.
- The Sneaky Instant Win – triggered by the Sammy Quickfingers symbol on either side of the Suitcase symbol on lines 1, 2 or 3; watch as Sammy crabs the cash from the suitcase and adds it to your winnings.
- Multiplier Mob Free Spins – when Frankie the Fixer appears on either side of the Tommy Gun symbol on lines 1, 2 or 3, watch as Frankie grabs the gun and shoots across the reels; click on one of the bullet holes to claim up to 20 free spins.
- The Underboss Scatter – this feature is triggered by three Fat Toy symbols on any payline, or by various combinations of other symbols; you can win up to 1000 free credits.
Music, audio and graphics
The Slotfather’s music and audio are what make this game really stand out. Atmospheric, Godfather-movie-style music plays throughout and each animated symbol comes with its own audio. The characters and the Slotfather himself address you directly at various points while you spin. The Slotfather’s greeting as the game loads up is arguably the high point of this game!
The Last Word
Brilliant entertainment for mob-movie lovers and anyone who enjoys a well-constructed, imaginative slot game with good back story. Nine out of ten.
