The stage is set and there are two families waiting to wrack their brains to beat their opponents. Five member of each family stand before you on the stage as the bright lights shine and the studio audience sits in silence. The reels of the game take centre stage and are yellow in colour and feature the following symbols, Family Feud Bonus, Family Feud logo, buzzer, answers 1 to 8, blue team, pink team, red X and card values of 10, J, Q, K and A.
The control panel to the lower of the screen offers pre-set stake buttons, there are eight in total offering you to bet; 0.15, 0.30, 0.75, 1.50, 3.00, 7.50, 15.00 and 30.00 – just lick the one you wish to stake and the reels will spin instantly with your chosen bet value. The paytable sits above the more bets button and you can keep track of your total bet and wins above the wager buttons.
Just like the gameshow, there can only be one winner and whether that’s you is a different story. If you can spin in five of a kind of the Family Feud logo symbols, you will be rewarded with a top prize of 10,000 coins. The coin values will reflect the bet you stake, so the more you stake, the more cash you will be able to win.
There’s plenty of big cash to be won and you can do this by spinning in a payline full of high value symbols, these are; the buzzer with 1,000 coins, answers 1 to 8 with 500 coins plus the blue team and pink team both with 400 coins. The low value symbols are the card values which offer between 100 coins and 200 coins.
Through to the Next Round
Family Feud logo is wild; this symbol will substitute for any symbol on the reels except for scatter and the bonus symbol. Scatter is represented by the red X symbol – this is designed to indicate a wrong answer in the gameshow and at least 2 anywhere on the reels will return a multiplier coin value between 3x and 50x your stake. Spin in three or the Family Feud bonus symbols and you will trigger the pick me bonus feature. Click on the cards on your screen to reveal a number of free spins you have won and a multiplier attached to all winnings.
Just like Family Feud, the Family Fortunes TV gameshow has its own slot machine – thanks to Fremantle. The 5-reel, 20-payline slot allows you to relive the excitement of the families going head to head to enter into the final round where there’s big cash to be won. Play from 0.20 to a max of 500.00 and you’ll come across wilds, scatters, a big money bonus game, free spins and a top prize of 500x your stake.
While the Family Feud slot game is based on the gameshow of the same name, the design of the is very basic and lacking added oomph. The graphics are standard and are not the best we’ve seen. Players of all budgets can play but those who love to stake high roller cash sums will feel held back by the 30.00 maximum stake on offer. Big cash will come during the free spins feature, this is all thanks to the increased multiplier values on all winnings.
