Scarface pokies review
Scarface pokies review
One of the top leading gambling software developers, Net Entertainment, earned the rights to make a online slot based on the iconic 1983 film Scarface, in conjunction with Universal pictures. Released in 2012, the graphics, in our opinion, are a lot better.

Scarface is considered to be one of the best gangster films in history, with Al Pacino lighting up the screens with his performance of Tony Montana, a Cuban refugee who rises from nothing to a powerful kingpin. It is also the film that is considered to have kick started Michelle Pfeiffer’s career.
How to play Scarface
Scarface opens with a video intro, which you can indeed skip, that features stills of the movie that move through big, bold, red text. We are then taken to the slot, which features 5 reels and 20 paylines, and a mysterious and suspenseful soundtrack from the movie (you can mute this in the top right hand corner).
There is a background picture of a gold coloured globe, with the text ‘The World is Yours’, which is in reference to the Scarface video game brought out by Radical Entertainment and Sierra Entertainment in 2006.

The lower value symbols on this slot are the traditional, 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A, and an array of mafia symbols including cash, chainsaws, and more. Interestingly there are no Scatter symbols for this slot.
There are however, four Wild symbols, that only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 and these can be Stacked.
Manny Wild: If you spin a Stacked Manny Wild on reel 2 you will trigger the Nudge Spins Feature.
Elvira Wild: If you spin a Stacked Elvira Wild on reel 4 you will trigger the Free Spin Bonus Feature.
Scarface Wild Logo: Substitues for all symbols.
Free spins and bonus features
There are two bonus features and one free spins feature, all activated by the Wild symbols.
The Nudge Spins Feature
After spinning a Stacked Manny Wild symbol on reel 2, the Nudge Spins Feature will be triggered and the Stacked Manny symbol will turn to a Nudge Wild, which substitutes for every symbol except Stacked Wilds.
The Nudge Wild will then ‘nudge’ down the rows and remain for free re-spins (depending on where it landed when it first appeared) for a chance at huge wins. The re-spins will stop when the Stacked Manny symbol is no longer on reel 2.
You can activate the other bonus rounds here, and the Nudge Wild will remain during the other bonuses if this occurs.
Scarface Bonus Feature
Tony’s gun will either be loaded with bullets to kill the enemy via the selected square, or a grenade to kill to the enemy via the selected square and any other enemies in surrounding squares.
For every kill you make you will receive a coin reward (these are based on your initial wager).
If you survive you will advance and a new Scarface bonus round will occur. There are 450 possible scenarios with a new scenario occurs every time.
Additionally, there is 8000 coins available to win in the Scarface Bonus Feature.
Note: There is a graphic violence warning for this bonus.
Free Spin Bonus Round
After spinning a Stacked Elvira Wild symbol on reel 4, the Free Spin Bonus Round will be triggered and here you are awarded 15 Free Spins, with all winnings tripled.
The free spins can be re-triggered throughout gameplay with no limit on how many times they can be re-triggered and even if you activate the free spins via the Nudge feature, winnings are sill multiplied.

Our thoughts on Scarface pokies
When we first saw that there wasn’t a Scatter symbol, we thought that might mean there wasn’t going to be any free spins, but there is, and the fact that the free spins are in conjunction with two other bonus rounds makes this slot an entertaining one.
If you aren’t a fan of graphical violence that you may find in some video games, then perhaps avoid this slot, but otherwise we think this is a great video slot with an array of features to keep you interested.
