Funnily enough, Family Guy was not an immediate hit. Seth MacFarlane, the show’s creator, graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in film, video and animation, and subsequently submitted a short demo of Family Guy that he had made on his computer in 1999. However, for a couple of the years the show struggled against weighty competition; turn of the century classics like Frasier and Friends.
However, after the show was canned DVD sales exploded. It became a cult phenomenon and was renewed for a fourth season in 2004. Since then, the cult of Family Guy has grown to exponential levels. Macfarlane himself said of the show; “The success of “The Simpsons” really opened doors. It showed that if you were working in animation you didn’t necessarily have to be working in kids’ television.” Like the TV program, IGT’s Family Guyvideo slot is also not for kids.
Family Guy is a 5 reel, 30 payline slot. You can bet between £1 and £50 on each line, with a maximum bet up to £2,500. The symbols include all your favourite members of the Griffin family; Peter, Lois, Chris, Meg and Stewie, as well as other miscellany from the show including Pawtucket Patriot Ale (which plays a big role in one of the bonus games), and Rupert the Bear, Stewie’s teddy and confidant. See the paytable for more information on each symbol’s relative worth.
Each family member (except Meg, notably) has their own feature, which can appear during any spin. Peter’s feature is a long fart which seems to translate into money. With Lois’s feature, you choose family members which, if they show up, mean you win lump sums of money in addition to any regular line wins. Brian’s feature means that you just need one World Bonus scatter symbol to trigger the bonus rounds. Finally, Stewie’s feature transforms up to 3 reels into wild columns offering the opportunity for massive payouts. The World Bonus scatter symbols appear on reels 2,3 and 4, and one per reel is enough to trigger the bonus rounds.
