Family Guy at Mr Green

It’s never easy to replicate the characters, tone and mood from a hit movie or a TV show in a slot… and many have failed in the past trying to. That said, the makers of the Family Guy slot (IGT) either worked closely with the producers of the TV show or were huge fans themselves; because they’ve certainly captured both the humour and quirks of it. The result is a game that will appeal to viewers of the show and anyone who loves a good slot, with this one boasting as many bonus features as anything else that’s on the market.
Let’s find out what makes it such great experience.

How to play Family Guy

To start the chaos in Peter’s house, you’ll first need to select your stake. The number of pay lines is always the same at 30 so all you’re selecting is how much you want to play per spin, with £0.50 being the minimum per spin and £1500 being the maximum.

Playing at the latter amount might for some people rival some of the things Peter says on the show on the stupidity ‘stakes’ (see what we did there?) so make sure the betting amounts are sensible for you.

The autoplay function is available for those who want it.

Family Guy features

It’s a 5x3 reel slot and all the family members are present on the reels. So, in order of value, most valuable first, they are: Peter, Lois, Brian the dog, baby Stewie (why does he speak with an English accent if he’s clearly American?), Chris and Meg.

Making up the numbers in terms of symbols are a TV, a bottle of beer, laser gun and a teddy bear.

All of the family members can appear above the reels at any time and deliver one of their catchphrases from the show. It doesn’t actually help your cause but it’s pretty entertaining anyway.

Family Guy Wild symbol

It’s represented by the game’s logo and can appear anywhere on the reels. It’s even more valuable than Peter so it’s actually the slot’s richest symbol of all. Five of them win you 500x your bet, four win you 200x and three reward you with 40x your bet.

Either way, that’s a lot of beer and fried chicken money for Peter so that’s the symbol you really want to see show up.

The Wild can substitute for any other symbol except the World Globe symbol, which we’ll talk about below.

Family Guy Bonus Features

Griffin Family Features
The family members appearing and delivering their catchphrases on cue isn’t helpful but on other occasions, their random appearance certainly is. Here’s what each of them do:
Peter: Get up to 500x the value of your coin awarded instantly.
Stewie: Three Wild symbols appear on the reels to help you win.
Lois:  One to three of the Griffin family member symbols are shown and will be awarded according to the symbols shown.
Brian:  One or two of the world bonus symbols will appear on reels 3 or 4 and this helps you trigger the World Bonus feature.
Chris: Any symbol anywhere on the reels can instantly become a Wild symbol.

World Bonus Feature
Getting three world globe symbols anywhere on Reels 2, 3 and 4 activates the World Bonus Feature. This in turn leads to one of these three features being awarded:

Lois Free Spins
You get 10 to start with. So far, so normal. What’s less usual is the presence of a Giggity Retriggity symbol on Reel 3 which will give you five additional free spins. There are four different types of Lois symbols in this round and for every three heart symbols that appear on the reels, one of those Lois symbols turns Wild when appearing on Reels 2-5. Theoretically all four of them could be Wild each time they appear, which leads to huge wins.

Chicken Fight
A recurring theme in the show is Peter’s ongoing feud with his arch-nemesis, the Giant Chicken. Here they literally come to blows in a boxing ring and you have to decide who your money is on: Peter, or our feathery friend.

Drunken Clam
When it all gets a bit much, Peter hits his favourite watering hole. Choose a character from four on offer and hope they drink everyone else under the table. As the others pass out from too much beer, you keep choosing new beer taps and they keep revealing new prizes till there are no more taps or no more characters standing.

Progressive Jackpot
If you randomly trigger the Stewie’s World Domination Jackpot Progressive bonus, you’ll get the chance to win one of the six Progressive Jackpots on offer.

Mechanics of Family Guy

If what we’ve described so far doesn’t sound like a right hoot, then maybe this slot isn’t for you. But if it’s the maths side of things that fascinates you instead, here’s what you need to know.

Max win (coins): 500

Max Bet (£): 0.50

Min Bet (£): 1250

Return to player: 94.2%

Volatility: Medium/High.

Thankfully, as a result of technology, you can take one of the USA’s best-known families around with you and play their slot whenever you wish. All you need is a smartphone or tablet. You can also enjoy Family Guy from the comfort of your home by playing on desktop or laptop.


Final conclusion


With all your favourite characters, six Progressive Jackpots on offer, loads of bonus features, clips from the real show and erratic and unsavoury behaviour from all of them thrown in… if you don’t like this slot it’s probably because you don’t like Family Guy.

There’s more than enough going on here to keep you engaged at all times and with so many different ways of securing a good win out of the blue, you’re kept in permanent suspense as you play.

One word of caution though: the slot is described almost everywhere as being low on the volatility scales, but we disagree. Base game wins aren’t as frequent as you’d think, much less significant ones. Ultimately your bank will very much depend on how often you trigger the bonus features, especially the more valuable ones, so bear that in mind.
