The Godfather video slot by WMS was one of the top 5 slots I was looking for on my recent trip to Vegas. Being a huge fan of the books and movies, I had to try the slot out. Thankfully, WMS has made an incredible video slot machine. I was not disappointed at all when I sat down to give it a spin, turned out I gave it a few spins.
There are two flavors in this theme, My Daughter’s Wedding (243 Ways to Win) and Coreleone’s Office (25 lines). I played the latter with a max bet of $3.00. The minimum bet is .50 cents on the penny denomination.
There is a free spin bonus and progressive bonus. During the free spins bonus, you collect icons, which icons depends on the free spins bonus you are in, and if you match the correct amount or go over, you get to pick an envelope which will give you credits or more free spins or both.
The progressive bonus can be entered by landing 3 icons plus the revolver symbol on the last line. In this bonus you choose a bullet that will reveal a progressive win or credits. After each win you are given an offer(the win) or you can decline the offer to increase the progressive amount or credit amount you have won. You then choose from a number of icons, choose correctly and you move up, choose wrong and you end the bonus and usually half of what the original win was. There are 6, yes 6, progressives available to win!
Both games have a wild icon that can become stacked. Why do I bother mentioning a wild symbol? Most every new game has wilds! Well, the only negative I can find in this title is the wild icon. It seems that game should have Don Corleone as the wild icon, not the “Godfather” logo. This seems to be a new trend in slot machines, the symbols that seem to be common sense choices as wilds are in fact NOT wilds. That being said, it is far from being a large enough issue to not play The Godfather.
WMS has done a tremendous job in all aspects of this slot theme, the sounds, the bonuses, the icons chosen for the game, they all are very much part of the very popular movie that the slot is themed after. This is a must play for all those “wise guys” and gals, that love the Godfather movies. It also is good enough to draw slot player who may not be into the gangster movies.
As of June 2011, M Resort Spa Casino and Red Rock Casino had this title.

- I rate The Godfather video slot machine a 9 out of 10. It is a game that has a higher hit frequency than most on the slot floor and an excellent amount of progressive jackpots to win. The mood the game sets will have you feeling you are part of the family! Excellent release by WMS !
