Family Guy is one of the most successful and long running series on TV. The first season of the show hit the TV screens in 1999, introducing Peter Griffin and his family – his wife Lois, the children Meg, Chris and Stewie and their pet dog Brian. Such is the popularity of Family Guy that it still runs today and has been the recipient of many awards, including three primetime Emmys. The show has seen many spin-offs, including potential movies, video games, linked TV shows and of course, this online pokie!
If you enjoy games where the bonus action is fun and varied, Family Guy might just be perfect. Here are the highlights:
To enter the main bonus feature you’ll need to land the ‘World Bonus’ symbol (featuring Stewie) on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin. You’ll now enter Stewie’s bedroom where he sits next to a desk featuring a large globe. Stewie will now spin the globe which will stop on one of the three following features:
Chicken Fight – This feature starts with you picking either Peter or the chicken, where you’ll see the two slug it out in a boxing ring, featuring inlay video clips from the series showing their classic fights. At the end of the round you’ll get to pick from a selection of money bags, with more selections if your chosen fighter won. There are three rounds in all, with the multiplier increasing after each round.
Lois Hot Free Spins – You’ll enjoy 10 free spins on a new ‘romantic’ set of reels, featuring handcuffs, strawberries dipped in chocolate and a naked Peter Griffin. Every time Peter appears (he’s the wild) a love heart will fill a meter at the bottom of the screen, turning the four Lois symbols wild one by one as the meter fills. By the end of the feature there could be wilds everywhere.
The Drunken Clam – In this feature you’ll enter the bar where Peter and three of his friends are enjoying a drink. Pick a character and then select beer taps to award instant prizes. Look on and hope your chosen character doesn’t collapse – the longer he can remain drinking the more selections you’ll have and the higher the multiplier.
Mystery Bonuses can hit any time during the base game, where Peter, Stewie, Lois and Brian can appear. These characters will add wilds, bonus prizes, extra bonus feature chances and wind-assisted (courtesy of Peter!) instant cash wins.
Family Guy has a five-reel set up and a set total of 30 win-lines. The cost of each spin is 50 credits, costing 30 credits for the lines and an additional 20 credits for the many features. The show’s title / logo acts as the wild symbol and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the bonus, also offering a top win of 500 coins. The six characters on the reels pay between 250 and 125 coins, while accessories such as ray-guns, broken TV’s and beer bottles feature at the low end of the pay table. There are no playing cards or other filler symbols – this pokie is on-theme all the way!
The design of this IGT game will be instantly familiar to you, with the colourful animated characters filling the reels. This gives the pokie an entertaining and humorous feel from the start, while the madcap action continues apace in the bonus features. Look out for the video clips from the show throughout play. The familiar Family Guy theme tune plays while you spin.
Family Guy is an enjoyable, high on entertainment pokie from IGT. This game features all of the leading characters each with their own added bonus action. Enter the world bonus and you’ll be slugging it out with a chicken, enjoying(?) amorous adventures with Lois and Peter or sitting in a bar getting drunk! A series of randomly awarded features add to the great variety of bonuses too, while video clips bring the series to life. This is a must play pokie for fans of Family Guy and anyone that enjoys varied and entertaining gambling.
