Mamma Mia! Slot
Abba-haters take note! This max 30-pay line 5-reel slot from Betsoft has nothing to do with the famous Swedish pop group, or the musical or movie, so there's no fear of experiencing Pierce Brosnan's terrible singing! This slot is instead based on an Italian restaurant run by a rotund chef called Salvatore, who watches you while you spin, disconcertingly holding a very sharp knife. He will attend to his large pots while you spin away, and will also occassionally announce his joy if you manage to secure a win. The symbols in this game are ingredients you'd find in any decent Italian meal such as peppers, tomatoes and olives, plus other restaurant-related items, like bottles of plonk, and a very stern looking food critic.
You start the game by selecting the size of your coin (from 0.02 to 1.00), the number of coins you want to gamble (from one to five), and the number of lines you want in play (from one to thirty). Your total stake is these three values multiplied together. When you're all set, you hit the spin button. To win one of the payouts available, you just need to land at least three identical symbols in sequence from the left hand reel on an active pay line. When you do, you're treated to one of Betsoft's trademark animations.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts start at 10x your bet per line for three chopping boards, to 500x for five of Salvatore himself.
The first bonus game is the pizza bonus, which you gain if you land three of more pizza symbols anywhere on the reels. The entire board is replaced by pizza ingredients and a whole new set of prizes is available. You receive a random number of free spins, and prizes range from 10x for three tomatoes to 1,000x for five slices of salami. As you play the free spins, Salvatore will make you a pizza using the ingredients of the prizes you land.
The 'food cover' symbol is another scatter symbol. At least three of them anywhere on the reels triggers the 'Pick Me!' feature – choose one of the food covers to lift off and reveal your prize.
The wild symbol in this game substitutes for all other symbols, as you'd expect, but in a delicious twist, if you land a wild symbol you can 'lock' it in place for further spins, as long as you are willing to up your stake to the level shown.
This is another great game from Betsoft, and Salvatore is a real character. Why not take 'Mamma Mia!' for a spin and to grab a 'pizza' the action?
