January 31, 2012 – Press release – Net Entertainment, the world’s leading provider of high-quality casino games, has revealed its latest platinum game, Scarface™. Adapted from Brian De Palma’s 1983 hit film, Scarface™ players follow the story of Tony Montana’s rise and fall in gangland Miami. The game itself is a five-reel, 20 win-line slot. 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.
A large crowd gathered to witness the unveiling at the ICE Totally Gaming conference, Earls Court, London, on Tuesday 24th January. As the curtain fell, 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.
It is the second time Net Entertainment has created a game based on a major classic Universal© movie title, following Frankenstein™, which launched in May 2011. Frankenstein™ was well received by the casino and gaming community and has since grown to become extremely popular.
“Scarface is a hugely popular film and we’re delighted to be able to present such an iconic title to the gaming community,” comments Björn Krantz, Act. President and CEO of Net Entertainment. “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.
“We’re extremely hopeful that Scarface will support our partners’ agenda for growth and our investment in the brand is yet further proof of our commitment to provide portfolio excellence in everything we do.”
