The Codfather is a slots game developed by NextGen. This slots game has five reels and twenty five pay lines to play. The entertaining action in this game all takes place in an underwater world of colour and sound and charming characters. There are the standard card symbols, 9 through Ace, but most of the symbols are the underwater characters.
There are lots of fish symbols, but in this game they are smart fish who wear striped suits and hats and smoke cigars too. The Codfather himself is the head of this aquatic dynasty, and is a gangster looking individual, which may make players think of the Godfather in Mafia stories. There are some familiar mobster occurrences in this comedy game, like a seahorse’s head instead of a horse’s head in the Godfather movie.
The Codfather Is a Valuable Symbol
The Wild in this game is the Codfather himself, and he will replace all other symbols except the scatter. The Codfather will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and all the wins obtained with the Wild will be doubled, so although he is not always easy to find, he is one of the favourite icons when he does appear. The scatter is the Codfather Logo, which on its appearance can increase the player’s winnings dramatically.
Two of the scatters appearing on the reels will give the player his original wager times two, three scatters will increase the wager by five times, four scatters by fifteen times, and five scatters will give the player a huge one hundred times his original stake. Two or more of the games’s logo symbols award scatter payouts, whereas three or more will activate the free spin bonus round. The free spins bonus can also be re-triggered with the appearance of more of the scatter symbols.
The appearance of three or more scatters will also grant the player ten or more free spins. During this round all the player’s winnings will be tripled. The free spins round can also be reactivated. Another profitable feature is the Big Boss Bonus. When the Codfather appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time the Big Boss Bonus will come into play. The player will need to choose one of the five fish Bosses, and the player has to choose which of the Bosses will bring the most money, and if the player has made the right choice he will receive plenty of coins as a reward. The Big Bosses are a group of shady looking characters, including a Hammerhead Shark.
Extra Features Also Offered
There is an interesting Gambling Feature too. The Canadian casinos player can gamble every winning with the Gamble button, and if the right colour is chosen the winnings will be doubled. If the correct suit is chosen the wager will even be quadrupled.
Before diving into the water and starting the adventure, the player needs to set his bet. It is possible to choose from 1 to 20 pay lines, and the amount per line can be between 0.01 and 2.00. There is a button called MaxBet that will set the bet instantly, and the AutoPlay button that is there for everyone who wishes to play the same value wager without hitting the spin button each time. The Codfather also becomes a multiplier of two times the wager.
