Net Entertainment is back with what is sure to be a contender for the best slot of 2012. Get ready to immerse yourself in the riveting story of Tony Montana in NetEnt's newest video slot, Scarface. Directly inspired by the classic 1983 film by Brian De Palma, Scarface is the platform's second branded game. Judging from initial reception, the game brings out some of the most innovative and entertaining characteristics that have ever graced an online slot machine. Although Scarface is still unreleased, we've got some behind-the-scenes info about what fresh elements it has to offer.
Brave the Streets of Miami
Scarface is based on one of the most captivating and action-packed stories ever told. Upon loading the game, you'll be taken into the gruesome world of street crime as portrayed by the legendary Al Pacino. This riveting tale of greed, corruption, and violence translates perfectly into the intense and unpredictable gameplay of a video slot.
Audiences at the January 2012 ICE Totally Gaming conference at Earls Court, London, got to see firsthand what Scarface had to offer. When NetEnt took the stage to showcase the game, they began by playing the slot's introductory cinematic. Whether or not you're a fan of the original film, there is no doubt that this mini-movie sets the tone for this dark game beautifully.
Easy to Play
After it pulls you into the story, Scarface continues to impress with its gameplay. To ensure that players can get started right away, Scarface uses a standard 5-reel layout with a total of 20 different paylines. The object for the base game is to get matching symbols along the paylines, whether they be characters from the film or simple objects. Get lucky enough, and these standard line wins could add up faster than a speeding bullet.
NetEnt is famous for its unique and exciting bonus features, but very few work as cohesively as the ones in Scarface. By triggering various specials, it actually feels like you are taking part in the action. Work hard by getting the right symbol combinations and see what these bonus features could bring you.
Scarface offers players stacked wilds all over the place, and if you get 3 reels filled with them, the riches really start flowing in. This combination can activate special features like Nudge Spins and Free Games. If you're really lucky, you could even make it to a special Shootout round directly inspired by the famous scene that gave us the line, "Say hello to my little friend."
Coming Soon to NetEnt!
It's not long until all of the world's fine NetEnt casinos add Scarface to their repertoire. When they do, you can rest assured that we'll be the first to provide in-depth analysis on every aspect of the game. But by knowing that the game is powered by a genius software provider and based on a true Hollywood classic, we can already guarantee that this is one video slot release that won't disappoint.
