If you’re a lover of crime and gangster films, then you’ll be very familiar with the shady characters involved in Slotfather II. Immortalised in slot form thanks to the developers at Betsoft, this title has been a big hit since it first decorated the reels back in 2017 and we’re about to see why.
The cartoon criminals in Slotfather II help to add a fun element to the game but the majority of players will want to know how to trigger a heist and claim some cash wins.
If we go back to basics, we should start in the initial phase of game-play where the aim is to line up matching images along a standard set of reels. The developers have set Slotfather II down on a 5×3 reel grid and there is an impressive set of 243 paylines available. Match symbols on adjacent reels from left to right and a cash win is yours.
But what are the icons that we need to align? The theme of the game dictates that we have some seriously shady individuals involved in this section of the slot. The Slotfather himself is a focal point and he is joined by a cigar on a brandy glass, a picture of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, a cleaver and a pile of cash. Lower value images are made up by playing card symbols.
A quick glance at the pay table tells us that the Slotfather is the most valuable of those icons with 300x coin stake due to be paid out whenever five appear on a payline. It’s a colourful and potentially rewarding base game but the bigger prizes lie in a host of cool features.
Completing the heist
As with a number of games from Betsoft, the wild symbol is clearly marked in Slotfather II so you cannot miss it. Its job in this operation is to replace most other images and to give you a winning combination where possible.
There are symbols that the wild cannot replace and these are known as scatters. In Slotfather II, we have just one scatter and this comes in the shape of a big blue truck which has presumably been used for some nefarious purpose. The truck is key to the free spins section and when three or more land anywhere in view, between eight and 20 extra spins will be triggered.
All wins in this free spins round carry a x2 multiplier and the spins can be re-triggered if more scatters land.
More bonuses can be claimed and they drop-in when three full reels of matching gangsters land. This section includes new characters Fat Tony, Frankie Knuckles and Snake Eyes Sammy and they can lead to extra prizes via a pick game.
Slotfather II also has a gamble feature where players can go double or quits on wins so this really is a packed game. For a combination of fun and the chance to win some generous cash prizes, this slot is going to be hard to beat.
