Pizza and mobile slots games – who would have thought it would take this long to put those two together. If it wasn’t a game developer you would have thought Domino’s or Pizza Hut or somebody would have done it themselves. But it took NextGen Gaming to marry the two passions.
Pizza Prize is a five-reel game with 25 paylines. There is no progressive jackpot but a 10,000 coin in-app jackpot is available.
Pizza Prize takes place at Tony’s Pizza parlour which Tony runs himself with the help of a delivery boy. We get to see the ingredients Tony uses in his pizzas and even the minor card symbols are spiced up with toppings. The “K” wears a toque, just like Tony. You are the only customer, we don’t see any other diners or any pies being picked up. Tony can concentrate solely on making you the perfect pie. Italian music plays on a loop and when the pizzas are ready they pop out of the oven.
Tony is our host as the pizzas bake and he is an excitable fellow although his reactions are not always in synch with the happenings on the reels. Tony is also the Wild symbol on the reels themselves and he substitutes for all the other symbols to cook up winning combinations. If Tony shows up five times on a payline he returns 10,000 coins. Make sure to leave a tip.
Beyond that the only topping to put on Tony’s pizza is the Free Spins Bonus. It is triggered by the Pizza scatters where three or more are ready on all the reels. You get 15 free spins on your plate and bottomless refills are possible by re-triggering the Bonus. All prizes are doubled during the session.
During the Free Spins a tiny oven appears on top of a random reel. If a Pizza scatter appears anywhere on that reel Tony pulls a lever and a prize is revealed. Prize toppings are different in each oven. On Reel Oven 1 there is cash worth up to 5X your stake or maybe an extra wild. On Reel Oven 2 there is again cash up to 5X your bet. Reel Oven 3 dispenses more Wilds. Reel Oven 4 is bursting with multipliers – 4X, 5X or even 8X. Reel Oven 5 awards extra games – 1, 2 or 4. Molto Bello!
