Once again, we’ll be taking a look at two supremely popular TV shows these days that have been given the virtual slot treatment, so let’s get started with a biggie:
First up comes a show associated with winning created by a man associated with fabulous wealth and success. Suffice to say therefore, an attractive prospect in online slot stakes. Britain’s Got Talent comes courtesy of the folks at Ash Gaming, delivered in the form of a five-reel, 20-payline slot with two interesting bonus rounds to play for. If you’re out for some high-rolling action, spins start out from as little as 20p each and go right up to…get this…£1,000 each! Fancy your chances at a grand a go? Not sure we do, either!
In visual terms, Britain’s Got Talent is a relatively simple affair – much simpler than we’d expected, in fact. Symbols include a variety of contestant types, including singers, dancers, jugglers and so on in silhouette form. Of the bunch, it’s the singer that has the potential to produce the most plentiful prizes – up to 1,500X your stake if you land five in a row.
As for the special symbols, the wild takes the form of a Union Jack and can substitute for any symbol in the game, aside from the scatter. If you’re lucky enough to land a five-symbol Union Flag combination, you’ll be walking away with a massive 10,000X your wager. Which could be interesting if you happened to put £1,000 on the line…which you probably didn’t!
One of the main bonus rounds to play for is the Live Show bonus feature, which can be accessed by landing the BGT logo on the first, third and fifth reels at the same time. You then get to choose whether you want a dance act, singer or novelty to represent you. The wheel will then spin, determining which contestant you’ll be playing with.
You’ll then be shown video clips from the show itself with your act doing their thing. If they get a yes from the judges, they go through to the next round and so do you. You start out at the first audition and try to make your way right through to the final. You’ll stack up multipliers along the way, from 50X up to a maximum 1,000X.
The second of the bonus rounds to play for is the Free Games feature, which can be accessed by landing at least three Free Spins symbols on the second, fourth and fifth reels. This will trigger three stars to appear, which will then determine how many free spins you win, up to a maximum of 20. A number of sticky wilds will also make their way onto the reels, increasing your chance of taking home a healthy prize.
To be honest, it’s a bit of a mixed bag with Britain’s Got Talent and one that’s dependant on whether or not you like the show. If you’re a huge BGT fan, you’ll definitely get a kick out of the way it is put together and presented. This counts double when it comes to the bonus rounds, which are guaranteed hits for fans of the show. By contrast, if you’re not what you’d call a true BGT fan, it might not have the type of depth to hold your attention.
An incredibly popular slot from IGT, Family Guy is nothing short of “freakin’ sweet” for fans of the show. If you haven’t already met the Griffin family, it’s pretty hard to sum up what it is about them that’s captured the hearts of the world. Suffice to say, you really need to go check out the show…and the slot too, for that matter!
Doing its business on desktop and mobile devices alike, Family Guy is a five-reel, 30-payline slot with a massive SEVEN bonus features to play for. And just like BGT, it’s right up there with the best of the for high-rollers – spins costing anything from 50p to an extraordinary £1,500 each! The visuals are absolutely superb and so too is the audio – perfectly recreating everything you know and love about the show itself.
The Family Guy World Bonus feature can be accessed by landing the World Bonus symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4, which then gives you the opportunity to spin the globe and access one of three bonus rounds.
The Drunken Clam Bonus feature means choosing a character and getting into a drinking competition, which could see you take home 25X to a full 1,000X your wager. The round plays out until all but one of the characters is unconscious!
Then there’s the Chicken Fight Bonus round, where you can take the side of the Chicken of Peter Griffin as the two do-battle. You’ll get up to seven picks throughout three rounds of fighting, winning prize multipliers from the sacks you choose – anything from 5X to 1,000X your wager.
Lois’ Hot Free Spins Bonus feature makes up the third of the trio, where 10 free spins are awarded along with a bunch of wilds for bigger and better prizes. It’s also possible to earn extra five spins by landing the Giggity Retriggity symbol on the middle reel. And every time you collect three Peter Heart symbols, one of the Lois symbols will turn wild and stick in place.
Want more? Well, there’s also the awesome Griffin Family Mystery feature, which can kick in at any time randomly during normal play. When this happens, it’s then a case of making your way into one of another FOUR bonus features, based on Brian, Lois, Stewie or Peter. Brian’s feature makes it possible to get into the Family Guy World bonus round with just 1 bonus symbol on the reels, Lois’ feature provides additional spins, Stewie’s features add three wilds symbols to the reels and Peter’s feature means an instant cash prize of up to 50X your bet.
As you can see, Family Guy is absolutely packed with features and presented beautifully. Not only this, but there are some seriously hefty prizes to play for, enough depth to keep you busy long-term and it’s surprisingly simple to get the hang of. Chances are that whether you’re a die-hard fan of the show or not, you’ll get a real kick out of the Family Guy slot!
