Family Guy, an online slot developed by IGT, is based on a popular TV show featuring characters such as Stewie, Meg, Brian, Peter, Meg, and friends. When it was released into the industry in 2012, the slot became an instant success. The cartoonish characters are presented beautifully along the slot's five reels and three rows. Since it is meant to be humorous, the sound effects and animations are quite amusing. You can also listen to the original TV show music and famous lines as you spin the reels.
Family Guy has thirty paylines. In order to start playing, players have to choose from coin values 1.00, 2.00, or 3.00 and click on the Spin button. If the reels display a winning combination at the end of one paid spin, they will win a payout.
The slot's bonus features yield the most satisfying payouts. At the same time, the slot has a fixed pay table, which shows some decent returns. If you land five wild symbols along a line, you can win 500 coins. While the character symbols yield prizes from 250 coins to 5 coins, the other symbols have prizes from 125 coins to 5 coins.
The Family Guy logo symbol serves as the wild and substitutes for all other symbols except the World Bonus symbol and the character symbols during the Lois Feature. It also has a payout structure of its own. If you land five, four, or three wild symbols anywhere on the reels, you will win 500 coins, 200 coins, and 40 coins, respectively.
If you land three World Bonus symbols anywhere on the second, third, and fourth reels, the World Bonus game gets activated. A globe appears on the playing area, and you will be prompted to set it spinning. Depending on how the globe comes to a stop, you will be able to unlock one of the three bonus games--The Drunken Clam, the Chicken Fight, and the Lois Hot Free Spins.
If you unlock the Drunken Clam Bonus, you will be prompted to select one of the characters from the Family Guy television show, who will be displayed on the play area. You can win anywhere between 25 to 1000 times the coin value you selected before the spin that activated the World Bonus. This bonus game gives you a multiplier value of x1 to begin with. The value of this multiplier increases as the characters you leave unselected collapse.
The Drunken Clam Bonus also encourages you to choose beer taps and win prizes in the range of x5 to x750. If you are lucky enough to click on a tap that reveals the Win All symbol, you will receive a prize equal to the sum of all the prizes revealed by the other beer taps.
If you activate the Chicken Fight Bonus, you have to choose either the giant chicken or Peter Griffin. The chicken fight takes place in three rounds, and you will receive one to seven picks in each round. You have to choose prize sacks equal to the number of picks you received in each round. The prize sacks hold rewards ranging from 5 to 1000 times the coin value you choose before the spin that unlocked the World Bonus. The amount you win is then multiplied by the multiplier value you earn during the three fighting rounds.
Your selected fighter will win multiplier values of 1x to 2x if he wins the first round, 2x to 3x if he wins the second round, and 3x to 5x if he wins the third round.
If you unlock the Lois' Hot Free Spins Bonus during the World Bonus, you will receive 10 free spins. Whenever the wild symbol appears on the fifth reel, a heart located next to a character symbol displayed at the bottom of the game screen will be filled. There are three hearts next to each character symbol, and as soon as they fill up, the character symbol turns into a wild symbol that can substitute for all other symbols except the re-trigger symbol and the regular wild symbol during the rest of the free spins.
In addition, you can make quite a lot of money in the slot's Griffin Family Features.
Family Guy mobile slot is compatible with a variety of iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Since the slot is based on HTML5 technology, you can access it across multiple platforms without having to download any casino gaming software or native app.
Family Guy is a great slot, especially as it is based on a TV show that got very popular. The bonus features may overwhelm you at first, but don't let this keep you away from the game.
