The Codfather Slot House Review
We’ve seen all kinds of slot machine game themes, but The Codfather by NextGen has to be one of the most unique – and fun! In this game, you venture beneath the waves to the underbelly of fishy society and come face to face with the Big Boss of the underworld – The Codfather!
But before you joins hands with this fishy mobsters, it would be best to understand how their world works so that you can increase your chances of snagging the bit loot!
The Codfather Gameplay
To begin your induction into the gangs of the underwater underworld, you need to first lay your bets. How you lay your bets will have an impact on how you win at The Codfather.
You need to choose the number of paylines you wish to play with which can be between 1 and 20. Then, you need to decide on the coin value, which can range from 0.01 to 2. When you set these two bet features, you can have a bet size that can range from 1p all the way up to £40.
While the potential to win in The Codfather is huge (5,000x your bet!), it is wise to remember that this game of chance has an RTP of 95.20% and it is a low variance. This means that getting that mega win will be very difficult. So, if you are trying for that jackpot, then it would be best to use all 25 paylines. If you’re a high roller, go ahead and make the maximum bet, but if not, then it would be wise to keep your coin value low so that you can compensate for the cost of using all 25 paylines.
This strategy does not guarantee you big prizes. It only increases the potential for you to win those big payouts.
Once you are done setting your bet, you can click on the Play or the Autoplay button to begin your watery underworld adventure.
The symbols in this game are high-value and low-value. The low-value symbols are the playing cards (9 to A), and the high-value symbols are the Worm on a Hook, the Seahorse, a Swordfish in a Guitar Case, and the Mafia Fish Bosses!
Landing all 5 of the Aces (the highest of the low-value symbols) will get you 150x your stake. But if you land all 5 of the Mafia Fish Bosses, you will win a massive 5,000x your bet! But that is a very rare occurrence, so if it happens, enjoy your massive wins!
Additional Game Features
The additional game features can help you achieve bigger wins.
- Wild Codfather
The Codfather is the Wild in this game (obviously!) and he appears only on reels 2 to 4, and can substitute for all other symbols but the Logo Scatter. When he makes up a winning combination with other symbols, your payouts are doubled!
- Codfather Logo Scatter
The Logo of this game is the Scatter, and it can land anywhere on the reels. Landing 2 Logos will give you a 2x win. 3 Logos give you a 5x win, 4 give you a 15x win and 5 Logos on the reels win you 100x your bet!
And if you land 3 or more Logos, you trigger the Free Games Feature!
- Free Games Feature
When you trigger this feature after landing 3 or more Logos anywhere on the reels, you win 10 Free Spins. And all winning combinations while this feature is active are multiplied by 3x.
And if you land even more Logos during this round, you can re-trigger this feature! But this can only happen once, so good luck with the Free Spins!
- Big Boss Bonus Feature
When the Wild Codfather appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, you will trigger the Big Boss feature. This is a classic Pick-Me mini game, where you are shown 5 Mob Bosses. You have to pick one of them, who will present you with a prize as a peace offering.
The Codfather Game Design
The Codfather’s game design is just absolutely, crazily wonderful! In the background, you can see the ocean floor, full of sea weed, the remains of a sunken ship, corals and the like. The reelscape is a beautifully designed piece, with bubbles on the reels, which actually look like the murky waters of the deepest ocean.
The low-value symbols – even though they are just the playing cards – are gorgeous. And the high-value symbols are a lot of fun! The music during the bonus game is so evocative of the Italian mafia that you will look over your shoulder to see if one of those fishy goons is right behind you! And we love how the gamescape changes to the inside of the Codfather’s house when the bonus game starts.
This is definitely a well-designed game – very creative, fun and engaging. In fact, this is one of the best themes we have seen on a slot machine in a long time!
This slot machine that NextGen has created is not only crazily fun, but it also gives you the kind of payouts you will love! For just a £40 bet, you can win as much as 5,000x your stake, which is £200,000! The Codfather is a game that would definitely recommend to all players, especially those who love quirky-themed slots!
And now that this game is available for PCs, tablets and your mobile phone, you can play The Codfather on the go!
