Nextgen Gaming introduces you to the jolly Italian pizza baker Tony in this Pizza Prize video slot

Tony bakes Pizzas for you with nothing but love and preferably with a nice prize as a topping. If the right ingredients are used, and the pizza delivery guy is on time, you could very well give this simple video slot a thumbs up.

At the start of the game, you immediately find yourself in front of the pizzeria with a typical Italian tune in the background, and that’s how your Pizza Prize experience begins.

The symbols you need to keep an eye out for and fill you up are the pizza scatter symbol and the Wild symbol displaying the head of the jolly Italian pizza baker Tony.

We dive into the pizza oven to figure out this yummy Pizza Prize video slot, Nextgen so lovingly developed for you. Buon appetito!

How does Pizza Prize work?

Tony’s pizzeria is located on a typical little Italian street and is open for business on a warm evening. The ovens are operating at full capacity to bake pizzas for you.

You play the Pizza Prize video slot with 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines. If you play the game with all 25 paylines, the minimum bet will cost you $€ 0.25 per spin. The maximum you can put down per spin is $€ 62.50. The payout rate does not stand out at a modest 95.37%.

Symbols and payouts

The symbols of this pizza video slot can deliver tasty prizes to you if you figure out how to spin winning combinations. The pizza baker himself, Tony, is the Wild symbol of Pizza Prize. The wild substitutes all other symbols, except for the pizza symbol.

Why? The pizza symbol is the scatter symbol in the game and causes the free spins to spew out of the oven. I will explain the ingredients of the Free Spin bonus game in a while.

Depending on how many Tony Wild symbols you manage to get on the reels, your bet is multiplied 10 x, up to as high as 10,000 x.

Other symbols you will see on the reels are sliced onions and tomatoes, the rolling pin, the slices of salami, and the pizza delivery guy’s image. These are the medium value symbols that will multiply your bet 15 x, even up to 500 x. Not as spicy as the high-value symbols, tasty nonetheless.

The symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A that we know from card games are decorated with elements from the pizza theme. They make up the low-value symbols and multiply your bet 5 x, up to 150 x.

Pizza Prize Free game Feature

The tastiest pizzas come out of the oven during the Pizza Prize Free Game Feature. This bonus game is activated as soon as you spin three scatters on the reels. You are then rewarded with no less than 15 free spins, and with every winning combination you create during the bonus game, your prize value is doubled.

Once inside the Pizza Prize Free Game Feature, a world of, or rather an oven full of extra wild symbols and multipliers, opens up for you.

When a pizza (scatter symbol) drops on a reel, baker Tony opens up the oven above that reel, and the following prizes can appear:

  • Reel 1: pizza changes into a Wild symbol or multiplies your bet between 2 x and 5 x
  • Reel 2: You win 2 x up to 5 x your bet
  • Reel 3: the pizza changes into a Wild symbol, or the entire 3rd reel changes into Wild symbols
  • Reel 4: The multiplier is increased during this spin to 4 x, up to 8 x
  • Reel 5: you receive 1 to 4 extra free spins

If you manage to get Tony to open up all the pizza ovens above the reels, you will earn an extra-large prize on top of the rewards that you had already earned.

Our verdict on the Pizza Prize video slot

This simple Pizza Prize video slot has many similarities with other Nextgen slots and is not unique. But the design, the theme, the music and the sound effects come together so nicely that the game keeps feeling enjoyable.

That the sound stops when there is no spinning action makes me a bit nervous. Fortunately, that is not the case with the Pizza Prize Free Game feature, and there are no distractions to reeling in those prizes.

Activating the Pizza Prize Free game feature was not that easy. Then again, baking a genuinely delicious pizza isn’t either.

Once the baked pizzas drop on the reels, it is game on, and you are golden.

With a bit of luck and high stakes, you will be getting extra-large prizes out of the oven, and it’s Buon appetito!

3.5 out of 5 stars.
