Scarface Movie Slot
Even if you didn't see the Scarface movie starring Al Pacino back in the 80s, it won't take you long to get to grips with this slot's themes: we're talking power, money (a lot of it), beautiful women and lethal violence. The Scarface story is about a Cuban immigrant, Tony Montana (Pacino) who arrives in Miami in the 80s in the middle of the cocaine boom. Montana goes on to take over a drug cartel but gradually succumbs to greed and cocaine addiction until the movie ends with Tony's violent last stand - a shoot-out in his luxurious mansion which features in this slot's interactive bonus game.
NetEnt's (officially authorized) take on the Scarface movie contains lots of original footage and music from the motion picture. For free slots players, this game is all about WILDS. There are three varieties, all of which trigger a different kind of reward feature. The movie footage, animations and interactive features of this movie slot make it a great game for real-money players and for players just spinning for fun.

The majority of the symbols on the reels are characters from the movie or high value playing cards (from 10 to Ace). These symbols don't display any animations when triggered in a payline, but you get plenty of that with the various WILD symbols:
- The NUDGE WILD (see below)
- The STACKED WILD (see below)
- The SCARFACE WILD (this substitutes for all other symbols and appears when a PARTIAL STACKED WILD comes up anywhere on the reels)
The NUDGE WILD and the STACKED WILD always feature an image of a character taken directly from the movie, along with audio and animation. What you also get in terms of animations - when you hit a winning payline with regular symbols - is a blood spatter across the screen with $100 bills flying all over the place: a gruesome but entertaining little addition which lends authenticity to this movie slot.
Wagers and Jackpots
The highest payout you can pocket on a regular spin is 2000 coins for 5 Tony Montana symbols on an active payline. The lowest is just 5 coins for 3 of any of the playing card symbols on an activated payline. There are 20 paylines in total on this 5-reel slot game. You can wager 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20 up to 0.50 maximum in whichever currency you might choose to play this game in for real money. You can increase your prospective winnings (or losses!) by betting up to 10 coins per payline. This makes Scarface a flexible game for real-cash players - you can spin this one on a tight to medium-sized budget.
Other ways to win
There are two other ways to win pots of cash on the Scarface movie slot: FREE SPINS and the BONUS ROUND. There are two types of FREE SPINS game - it's all about which reel your STACKED WILD falls on:
- NUDGE SPINS - triggered by a full STACKED WILD on reel 2; this converts the WILD to a NUDGE WILD and launches the NUDGE SPINS. During these spins the WILD (which substitutes for all other symbols expect other STACKED WILDS) is nudged down the reels as they spin, thereby increasing your chances of a winning symbol combination.
- FREE SPINS - when a STACKED WILD falls on reel 4, the FREE SPINS round is launched: 15 free games with a x3 multiplier and the chance of winning additional free spins if another STACKED WILD hits reel 4 while the first round is playing out.
The BONUS GAME is the highlight of the Scarface slot. Kindly, NetEnt have provided a FEATURE PREVIEW tab at the bottom right of the reels so you can check this out even without spinning if you wish. The BONUS GAME is launched when a full STACKED WILD lands on reel 3. The reels change and you'll see footage of Tony Montana's last stand in the original movie. His mansion is under attack and in a drug-fuelled frenzy he fights back. Your job is to select targets from among the attackers for Tony Montana to shoot and kill. You are rewarded with a bonus for each successful hit you make in Montana's last stand, before he meets a grizzly end.
Music, audio and graphics
Very good indeed! A lesson from NetEnt in how to produce movie slots; the only comment we have is that the reels would be improved by some animations within the reels symbols themselves.
The Last Word
Bearing in mind that this slot is not for the faint hearted, we recommend it for fans of movie slot games, mafia-style movies and slot fans who enjoy a free spin. There's plenty to see and to keep you entertained. Eight out of ten.
