Playtech brings forth its slot depiction of the popular animated TV show American Dad. It’s one of the few slot games launched on the Playtech ONE platform. IGT gave us Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy, and in all honesty, American Dad resembles it greatly. Players who haven’t seen the TV Show will definitely not enjoy the slot as much its loyal fans. In terms of gameplay, the American Dad slot is heavily bonus feature dependent, meaning if you want to profit, you will have to grind your way to a positive ending cash balance.

American Dad slot features a broad 5x4 symbol grid and 40 paylines, and players are not allowed to increase or decrease the number of active paylines. This has a huge impact on the payouts. With 40 paylines, the entry bet is €0.40 and high rollers can enjoy this video slot with maximum bets of €200. The game content is rich, showcasing 5 unique bonus features, based on the leading characters in the TV Show American Dad.
In essence, you should play the game with low to medium bets to explore all of the content. However, we also recommend playing with modest bets because they are the only reliable source of high wins. Playtech decided to incentivize their players to stay longer in the game, but using a counterintuitive approach, making the paytable modest.
As it turns out, you don’t have to be familiar with the TV Show to get hyped and raise the dopamine levels. The dynamic audio and the creative features steal away your attention, especially during the bonus games and whenever you land a medium to big win. Playtech’s ONE platform seems to be doing a pretty good job. The video engine is revamped, setting the grounds for crisp, clear graphics. The slot is truly created in the spirit of the TV Show.
We love how the designers approached the triggers of the bonus features. The tension rises until all reels don’t come to a full stop. Schmooblyndong’s Wheel is a starting point of any bonus feature.
Although we tried not to, but we have to admit that American Dad is indeed better than its “counterpart” Family Guy.
Each of the main characters has its own bonus feature. Schmooblyndong’s Wheel decides what bonus game the player will enjoy, whereas the special symbols appearing on reel 3, and occasionally on reel 5 decide the quantity parameters.
You have no idea what American Dad is? No worries. Playtech made sure that all characters are given proper introduction, at least to some extent. It definitely introduces many new slot mechanics that are hopefully, going to encourage other studios to experiment and take risks.
