Get ready to relive the volatile 1920 era on the slot from Peter & Sons powered by Oryx Gaming. The Mafiosi is taking you to New York in the prohibition days when gangs would fight for control of the city and a piece of the turf after the infamous dry law was imposed. You will roam the gangster reels with expanding wilds, win multipliers, a bonus meter and three free spins features that can lead to wins of up to 3,957 times your bet.
The Mafiosi is a 5×3 video slot with 243 ways to pay. Wins are paid for landing three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can become a reel gangster on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.20 to 40 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.01% and a hit frequency of roughly 1:4 spins.
In a commendable move, Peter & Sons is showing an unrivaled level of transparency, not seen in such detail from any other small or large slot developer. Accessing the game rules will give you an overview of the main facts such as RTP, hit frequency and odds of hitting the maximum win. GMBLRS welcomes this change as it provides players with an opportunity to be informed. Considering the secrecy of the gaming industry, we do look forward to the day when such transparency will be the norm for all providers.
A soundtrack filled with suspense and jazz tones plays while Don Giovanni, smoking a cigar, tosses a coin. The Don’s office provides the night time setting for The Mafiosi, with the wall behind acting as the play area. The artwork is exquisite and imaginatively pieced together to a high standard.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card suits held on coloured casino chips – violet spades, green clubs, blue diamonds and purple hearts – awarding 0.4x to 0.5x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by red 1920s cars, diamond & necklace sets, revolvers and three gang characters on green, blue and purple backgrounds. Hit five across the reels to win 1.25x to 5x your bet. A bank safe is the wild, appearing on the three middle reels only and substituting for all regular symbols, while a Mafiosi acts as the scatter on reels one and five.
The Mafiosi Slot Features
Peter & Sons are turning a few heads with the quality and creativity of their titles. Now and again, a developer pops up seemingly from nowhere and catapults to fame in the blink of an eye. There are a few to watch currently and Peter & Sons are one of them. Recent releases Johnan Legendarian and Robin: Sherwood Marauders have piqued some interest, so let’s see if The Mafiosi is destined for Godfather approval.
During the game and bonus features, watch out for the bank safe wilds to land on any of the three centre reels. Each will expand if it is part of a winning combo and does not appear in full view. For every wild the win multiplier will increase by x1, providing the potential for an x4 multiplier on a single spin. It will reset to x1 between spins.
Two bonus scatters feature on reels 1 and 5 only. Each scatter landing will contribute 0.2% towards filling the Bonus Meter. Hitting scatters on both reels simultaneously will trigger 10 Free Spins. During the feature, at least one wild is guaranteed to land and expands to fill the reel when part of a win. The multiplier starts at x1 for each spin and will increase by one for each wild in play – multiplying the win and adding to the bonus round tally.
At 70% full, the meter unlocks the Super Free Spins bonus game. You can choose to take this feature or continue to fill the meter, unlocking a Mega Free Spins feature when reaching 100%. Both bonus rounds follow the same logic as the organic free spins round but with an extra row that increases the game area to a 5×4 format with 1,024 ways to win. During the Mega Free Spins, in addition to the extra row, each wild within a win increases the win multiplier by x2 instead of x1.
The current wave of boutique designer studios surfacing means exciting times ahead. Competition tends to increase quality, and Peter & Sons are amongst the cream of the crop for artwork and theme design. The Mafiosi continues to raise expectations, in character with their growing catalogue. The base game has a fairly good hit rate with a natural bonus trigger to add to the increased potential of the Super or Mega bonuses. Wrapped in a respectable RTP of 96.01% with an honourable listing of the slots statistics means, The Mafiosi deserves your favour.
