We are at a point now where we think that just about everyone has seen at least one episode of Family Guy, and even though BBC 3, its spiritual home in the UK has now disappeared, there are still plenty of ways to watch. We can also imagine that there are people out there that do not appreciate the style of humour on the show, but we definitely do not fall into that category ourselves and we actually find it pretty hilarious! TV shows are always prime property for game makers and the only surprise when it comes to this slot is that IGT, perhaps the biggest of them all, has gone all out to be the ones to bring the game to our mobile screens. They have not disappointed either, as the game is absolutely packed with great features that draw brilliantly on the subject material, and this is a game that is worthy of carrying the name of one of the most popular shows in the world.
What to Expect
This is of course certainly not our first rodeo when it comes to mobile slots based on cartoons targeted at adults, as NetEnt did something similar with not just one but two different South Park mobile slots. Funnily enough, they were feature packed feasts too, and it seems like that is the way that developers like to go with licenses like this one. The graphics here on Family Guy are exactly what you would expect, replicating the characters and settings from the show perfectly, and thirty lines ensure that the symbols land thick and fast too. The Family Guy logo is the wild card on this one and it makes plenty of appearances over the course of any given session to keep those wins coming, although even the base game bonuses can potentially be much more important.
These bonuses are all based on the Griffin family, and a member can appear randomly on the board while any spin is playing out. It could be Peter, who will award an instant prize in a rather creative manner, Stewie to bring between one and three extra wilds onto a certain reel, Lois creating additional scatter wins or Brian to potentially bring the main bonus into play by adding more symbols.
That main bonus is the World Bonus, named as such because you might find yourself in one of a number of different locations from the show. It might be the Drunken Clam, or perhaps in the Chicken Fight – or it could even be in Lois’s bedroom for some ‘Hot Free Spins’! We won’t spoil the action too much, as these features are a sight to behold in their own right, but it is fair to say that they are packed with every bit as much value as you would have come to expect from IGT.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
There is quite a bit of randomness to the Family Guy mobile slot, in that you never know which of the main features you will land on nor if or when one of the family will land on the board. However, in terms of cramming in enough feature action to keep anyone thoroughly entertained, this game most definitely delivers. If you are already a fan of the show then that is most definitely a bonus although we would play this one even if we had never seen the subject matter before. We would definitely suggest checking it out when you get the opportunity as this is one mobile slot that we feel is not to be missed!
