The Sopranos Slots - Playtech
ABOUT THE SOPRANOS SLOTS
Themed on the American TV series of the same name, The Sopranos video slot was rolled out by Playtech in November 2012 to great reviews. The New Jersey's most famous family returns to the screens in the five reel twenty-five payline branded slot game, which offers endless win opportunities to casino gamers through the long list of special features.
Main characters from the popular TV drama populate the reels as high value game symbols, meaning you will be seeing Tony Soprano, Paulie, Christopher, Artie, Bobby and Johnny on regular basis. The Sopranos game logo, container and five high cards complete the list. The interesting thing is that each playing card is depicted with an addition icon, such as casino chips, glass of scotch, golden watch, bottle of wine and cigar.
HOW TO PLAY
With bet per line option removed from the equation, the process of placing bets has been seriously simplified. Simply use + and – below 'Lines' and 'Line Bet' to activate up to 25 paylines and choose from ten available coin denominations, ranging from $0.01 to $50. Press spin, bet max or auto play to start the game, or click on 'Info' to check the paytable.
Tony Soprano acts as the Wild symbol, substituting for all but three feature icons to complete winning combinations. The Wild also awards payout on its own. The Sopranos Logo is Scatter and while it unlocks the Crime Family Free Games, it also pays out Scatter Wins for three or more icons in any position.
Playtech clearly wanted to do The Sopranos TV series proud with their branded slot machine, introducing a host of highly rewarding extra features. The Crime Family Free Games come with four different modes – Solider, Capo, Boss and Family, whilst Raid Bonus, Bada Bing Bonus and Stolen Goods Bonus offer players additional opportunities to strike it rich.
The main bonus round is titled Crime Family Free Games and it is triggered when three or more scattered The Sopranos Logo icons occur in any position.
The first mode that is unlocked is Soldier and this is where players get 25 free games where Christopher acts as Extra Wild and awards 5 more free games when it appears in center position of reel 3.
Capo is the second mode that is unlocked, awarding 20 free games with random multipliers of x2, x3, x4 or x5. One or more Paulie symbols appearing anywhere increase the multiplier by +1, whereas the multiplier decreases when there are no Paulie icons on the reels.
Boss mode awards 10 free games where 2 to 5 Extra Wilds are distributed randomly on each spin. Tony Soprano symbol appearing anywhere on reel 3 wins 5 more free games.
Ten free games are awarded in Family mode, where only five family members, Artie and The Sopranos Scatter appear on the reels. Tony Soprano doubles all wins when it substitutes to form a winning combination.
Raid Bonus is triggered randomly during base play and it will see players stash four envelops in four hideouts and win the accumulated value of envelops that are not discovered.
Bada Bing! icons appearing anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time activate Bada Bing Bonus. Choose whom of the five characters Tony will meet and receive a cash prize.
Container icons anywhere on reels 1 and 5 in the main game trigger the Stolen Goods Bonus. Pick up to three containers from a total of 10 and win an instant prize.
Scatter symbol is represented by The Sopranos Logo and its main purpose is to award entry into the four-level Crime Family Free Games. This feature can subsequently award massive payouts, but the symbol also have another role. It will award payouts equal to 3x, 10x and 100x the total bet for three, four and five icons respectively on the game screen.
For a game with so many stunning bonus rounds, The Sopranos video slot will not leave the players disappointed with base line payouts. Tony Soprano Wild acts as the highest-paying icon, awarding 3,000 credits for five matching symbols on an active payline. Paulie is the only other icon that can pay out 1,000 coins or more.
