Three Stacked Wilds on three different reels activate Nudge Spins and Free Spins features, plus a thrilling bonus game based on the 'Say hello to my little friend!' shootout sequence from the film." The game was revealed January 24th at the ICE Totally Gaming conference at London's Earls Court. "As the curtain fell," states the press release, "they greeted the sight of the iconic image of Al Pacino as Tony Montana with applause before being treated to the game’s fantastic intro sequence and demonstrations from Net Entertainment staff." Net Entertainment president and CEO Björn Krantz said, "Scarface is a hugely popular film and we’re delighted to be able to present such an iconic title to the gaming community. It’s been a joy to see the concept develop and we thank Universal for their cooperation in bringing the game to life. As with Frankenstein, our previous branded game, we aimed to use a world-renowned title as a platform on which to build a slot game that pushes the boundaries of innovation and excitement value."
