GoodFishes’ name and theme are derived from the legendary crime film of Martin Scorsese Goodfellas. The background story involves the insane decision to replace the authoritative gangster figures, played by great actors in the film with various kinds of fish, which makes for a very funny atmosphere in deed.
The background of the reels displays the big city with two bridges going over the water. It is under the surface where the gangster shark-inhabited crime world exists. Many other nautical beings have also put on a suit and tie and have joined the fish underworld.
The game is in possession of 5 reels, 3 rows and 30 paylines. The available coin sizes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 25, 50 cents and 1, 2, 5 and 10 dollars. All the paylines pay from left to right with the exception of the All Ways Da Pays bonus round. Six fish main characters will have their own symbol, the combinations of which will pay generously.
The leader of the criminal bunch goes by the name of Frankie the Fishmonger and he is a shark. It is the highest paying symbol of the game. Some of the other symbols, which can make an appearance on the reels and form winning combinations are the Ace, the Clamshell, the Fishes, the GoldFishes logo, the Jack, the Queen, the King and the 10.
The gameplay of GoodFishes also features special wilds that have the stacked effect, meaning that they will be taking up more than a single position on the reels. Naturally, the wild of the game is also capable of replacing the rest of the symbols in the game in order to create new winning combinations and those two effects will produce terrific prizes.
The bonus feature of the game can be activated when the player gets 3 Frankie’s Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. The bonus round will require the gambler to select one of 3 fishes, which are placed in Frankie the shark’s special butcher shop. Once the selection is made, one out of six prizes will be awarded – The Big Catch, All Ways Da Pays, Sticky Wilds, 15 Free Spins, 8 Free Spins or 5 Free Spins.
GoodFellas is a gorgeous 3D-animated slot, featuring an outlandish theme and best of all – plenty of great opportunities for solid earnings, which can make you as rich as a gangster in an instant.
