The Bada Bing Bonus

The Bada Bing Bonus features a video clip from the TV series and when this finishes, it’s possible that you will get yet another chance to pick a character and win even more cash rewards.
Crime Family free games
This is the feature which will most likely reward you with the biggest wins and is triggered by landing three of The Sopranos logos. In this feature, you will start with the soldier mode, but if you manage to fill up the trio of bars displayed under each of the modes, you can move on to a higher level.
You can unlock the modes by getting Scatters during the main game. Four to five of the scatter symbols will unlock two steps and your progress will be recorded. This means that you can return to the game at a different time and you won’t have to start from scratch.
The four modes offer different rewards. Here’s how it will work out for you, depending on which modes you manage to unlock.
You will get an impressive 25 free spins, while a Christopher Moltisanti icon will be added as an additional wild. If the Christopher symbol appears in the middle of reel three then you will be rewarded with a prize of five extra free spins.
Hit the Capo mode and your prize will be 20 free spins plus a dynamic multiplier which could be anything from 2x to 5x. You also need to keep an eye out for the icon showing Paulie ‘Walnuts’ Gaultieri. If he turns up after one of your spins, then your multiplier will increase by one. If he doesn’t show up, however, your multiplier can go down by one.
Ten free spins is the first reward for making it to Boss mode in The Sopranos and these are accompanied by between two and five additional Wilds, which will be randomly scattered around the reels.
These Wilds will be awarded for each free spin and you need to look out for a Wild symbol which can land in the centre of reel three and reward you with another five free spins.
The highest level is family mode and this can be a really lucrative feature to unlock. On the face of it, a prize of just ten free spins doesn’t seem like the jackpot reward that it should be, but just wait until you hear what the reels you’re going to spin will contain.
If you make it to the family free games level and take advantage of the ten free spins available, your reels will only contain family member symbols, Wilds and Scatters. This means that massive wins are on the cards. If this is still not enough, the Wild symbols which take part in this part of The Sopranos game will double in their value while you enjoy the free spinning action on offer.

This huge range of betting options means that there is plenty of scope to enjoy all of the excitement, action and adventure that The Sopranos has to offer however you choose to play this low to medium variance game, where big wins are on offer during the impressive free games feature.
