The Godfather is the first in a planned series of slots by Gamesys based on the classic films and is designed for repeat play, with unlockable bonus features and achievements (all of which will need to be collected to unlock the next slot in the series).
The Godfather has 3 bonus features that can appear in the base game but must be unlocked by getting achievements. The Family feature randomly has the Godfather show up to gather the three Mafiosa into a single high scoring Family Business symbol. The Money feature randomly has the Godfather showing up to make you a cash offer; you must choose between that or a mystery multiplier (2x to 10x) that will be applied to your next winning spin. The Respect feature randomly adds up to 5 extra wilds (in the form of horses’ heads) to the reels.
The bonus round in The Godfather is called the Free Spins Wedding Bonus and it is triggered by getting 3 wedding cake symbols (they appear on reels 1,3, and 5 only). During the free spins, stacked wedding cake wilds appear on reels 2,3 and 4. At the side of the reels during the free spins is a 5 tier wedding cake. You start at the top with a x1 multiplier. Each winning spin moves you up a tier (if possible) and increases the multiplier. Each losing spin moves you down a tier and decreases the multiplier (unless it’s already 1).
A losing spin if you are already on the bottom tier of the cake triggers the Cut The Cake feature which ends the free spins. For the final free spin, pieces of cake land randomly on the reels creating up to 10 extra wilds.
One very notable feature of the Godfather is the care that has been taken to ensure players have control over exactly how much they are spending. There’s no autoplay button (apart from one giving you the option to autoplay free spins) and instead of a spin button there are buttons for choosing bet level (ranging from 25 x 0.01 to 25 x 2) and a box which shows the total bet. You then choose Play for the first spin you make and Repeat Bet for subsequent spins. This is a very entertaining slot with a sense of social responsibility that is somewhat at odds with the subject matter!
