It’s our favorite family coming from Quahog, Rhode Island. This amazing and hilarious TV show has been on the air since 1999. It follows the life of an average American family which on occasions seems very dysfunctional, but in a humorous way. All of them have their own issues, and yet they still manage to cope with what life throws at them. IGT (WagerWorks) got the privilege to work on this magnificent project. With no doubt they did an outstanding job. It may seem easy to put a show on the reels since there already are preconceived characters, but depicting their personality is the crucial issue many TV show themed slots turned out to be a failure.
Family Guy by IGT is a 5 reel video slot with 30 paylines. The number of active paylines is fixed. There are quite a lot of bet constraints in terms of available bet range. For example, players can’t place more coins per payline. Furthermore, since the number of paylines can’t be adjusted casual players may have to raise their standards a bit if they want to enjoy in this slot game. Nonetheless, at least they can play with the coin value which ranges between the values of 1.00 and 50. Therefore the minimum possible bet is 50 and the maximum a staggering 2500. You better be careful with the bet settings as you don’t want to ruin your game night with one spin only.
It’s catchy, hilarious and Family Guy fans simply adore it. We can’t see any reason why this won’t be their next favorite game. Each of the characters is shows at its best with random quotes during normal game. During Free Spins or any of the bonus games there are additional unique quotes and audio effects that further increase the degree of interaction with the original characters. IGT carefully designed the bonus features to suit the player’s personality. The Wild Symbol is represented with the logo of Family Guy. Using the logo as a Wild Symbol is a common practice among game designers when working on TV show themed games. In this game the symbol that says World Bonus represents the Bonus Symbol or the Scatter. Its role can vary depending on the positioning of other symbols on the reels.
All of the special bonus features are activated by hitting 3 World Bonus symbols anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4. Once you hit 3 of these a Globe will appear and it starts spinning. There are 3 outcomes which in the same time are the 3 bonus features: The Drunken Clam, Chicken Fight and Lois’ Hot Free Spins.
Lois’ Hot Free Spins depicts the romance between Peter and Lois with some rather kinky elements. In this bonus game the player is rewarded with 10 Free Spins. A whole new set of symbols is in play. The more Heart Shaped Peter Symbols you hit the higher and more frequent the wins become. There are 4 bars below the Reels. Once a bar is filled with hearts an additional symbol will act as a Wild on reels 2 through 5.
Drunken Clam Bonus requires the player to choose one of the 4 taps to pour a drink. Until the 10th turn there’s a chance that one of the characters will pass out. In case the selected character passes out the bonus game ends. After the 10th turn a character passes out each turn. The more rounds you manage to reach the higher the multiplier will be.
Last, but not least is the Chicken Fight Bonus. In this game the player is required to guess the winner of the fight between the Chicken and Peter. The more time the player guesses the winner the more picks will be granted. After 3 rounds the player receives 4-7 picks. After you choose one of the money bags the opponent will choose his and removes it from play. The multiplier count increases as you progress in the game.
You don’t have to be a fan of the TV show to find this game interesting. Even as a standalone product it’s still amusing and hilarious. The most distinctive element of the game are the random quotes you get to hear in the background. It has tons of special features. You can’t know what will happen next as Family Guy Slot game is fast paced. Jumping from one bonus game to another the prize counter keeps on spinning.
