Game in Action
The first thing that I said out loud after playing The Sopranos was that this game really has potential. It is also very interesting to see such a well executed game from PlayTech. The slot brings back a huge variety of memories from certain moments that happened in Sopranos, while it also offers huge winnings and a lot of bonuses. The only game based on a series that offers this much bonuses must be South Park, but that is a whole another slot to talk about. After playing this slot, I had already hit the bonus rounds twice in thirty minutes and the free spins once, which should also indicate something about the game’s frequency of getting to bonus rounds. All in all, The Sopranos is a pleasant experience that will probably surprise many people who have doubted PlayTech before.
The Sopranos has five reels, three rows, and 25 paylines. You can adjust the bet by changing the amount of active lines and the bet per line. The maximum bet is $1250, which is one of the highest maximum bets that there are, although you can already play very efficiently with a couple of dollars as your bet.
The Sopranos comes with five bonuses
Wild symbols are symbols which are found in every reel, and when they have a chance, they can fill in winning combinations by substituting for any symbol in the game, but take into notice that Bonus and Scatter symbols can’t be substituted by Wilds.
Scatter bonus can be activated by getting three or more Scatter symbols. The player can then choose one of the following free spin bonuses:
- Soldier Free Spins gives you 25 free spins, where the Soldier symbols are turned into Extra Wilds, and every time a Soldier symbol is in the centre position of the third reel, you will get 5 more free spins.
- Capo Free Spins gives you 20 free spins, where the first spin starts with you getting a random multiplier. If a Capo symbol appears during the spin, the multiplier will increase by 1x. If no Capo symbols appear, the multiplier will decrease by 1x. The multiplier can’t be lower than 2x.
- Boss Free Spins give you 10 free spins, where the Boss symbols are Extra Wild and at least two and a maximum of five Boss symbols will appear at the start of every spin. If a Boss symbol is found on the centre position of the third reel, you will get 5 more free spins.
- Family Free spins give you 10 free spins, where only the family members and Sopranos symbols can appear on the reels. All the winnings with Wild symbols are doubled. These free spins can’t be retriggered.
Raid Bonus is a bonus that is triggered randomly. During this mini game, there are policemen who are raiding two of your locations. You will need to hide four cash envelopes in any locations. Only two locations are safe. All of the envelopes that are not raided will give your current bet back with a 2x multiplier.
Bada Bing Bonus is activated if you get three Bada Bing symbols. During these rounds you will have to choose family members who will go and chat with Tony. Depending on how the chat goes, you will get random cash prizes.
Stolen Good Bonus is activated by getting a Container symbol in reels 1 and 5. This will activate a mini game where you will be able to open up containers that will reveal cash prizes behind them. You can either take a container or leave it, with the third one being your last and final choice.
Other Slot Machines You Might Enjoy
The Sopranos is an astonishing slot that is able to bring back memories from the time the show was airing. The amount of work put into details with this slot is amazing and the winnings are just ridiculous if you get to the bonus rounds. The game is also rather good for beginners, although it isn’t as simple as some other slots, like Mega Moolah.
