American Dad is an adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The première of this series was shown on February 6, 2005, following Super Bowl XXXIX. It focuses on the eccentric upper middle class Smith family in the fictional community of Langley Falls, Virginia. Of course, there’s the dad, the mum and the two children. And this game manages to bring all of the thrills of the TV show to life on its reels. And what would thrills be without a touch of comedy too? Fortunately, the American Dad game also incorporates such into its reels. So, all in all, you’ve got a great take on the show. And while you’re playing, you’ll get to see all of your favourite characters make an appearance. Although, even if you’re not specifically a fan of the television show, the game still holds great appeal!
The design of this game gives you a five reel and four row interface. This is slightly larger than the average video slot game layout. However, it simple provides you with extra opportunities to form wins. Upon its reels, you will get to see the variety of different icons, all of which relate to its theme. Even the first of them – the regularly seen playing card symbols – have the red, white and blue colours of the USA flag. Joining these basic symbols, you’ll also get to see multiple different characters appear as icons. There’s Steve, the son of the family, and Hayley, the daughter. Klaus is also present as the man-in-a-fish-body pet. Then, Francine and Stan who portray the mum and dad of the series are also present. Stan is the game’s highest paying standard symbol. He can pay out a maximum of 250 coins if five show up on a winning bet line.
As well as its reels, rows and icons, American Dad also has a total of 40 separate bet lines for you to wager on. These lines are completely set in place though, so you do not have the option of adjusting them in any way. However, you can change around the value of the wager that you place per spin. Simply make use of the plus and minus buttons underneath the ‘Line Bet’ section. With these, you can change the amount of your bet per line between £0.01 and £10. This means that you have the opportunity to place a maximum overall wager of £400 per spin. You can also use the ‘Turbo Mode’ button to speed up the reel spins, or the ‘Auto Spins’ button as well. This sets the reels of spinning several consecutive times at the same bet level.
Comedic and Intriguing Specialities
There are some very high quality graphics in this slot, and base gameplay is exceptionally intriguing. However, does it also provide some appealing special features? The answer to that is, yes. Roger, the alien, provides the game with its wild icon. As a wild, he will stand in for all other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination. The only exception to this rule is the game’s bonus wheel icon. And if you bring five of the wild icons into view on a winning pay line, you will receive a maximum reward of 750 coins!
The biggest inclusion of this game is the Schmooblydong Bonus Wheel round. This can come into play whenever the icon for such appears on reels one and three simultaneously. This begins a re-spin of the reels, with the first two wheel icons locking in place. If a third of this icon comes into view on reel five, the free
spins round begins. The Schmooblydong Bonus Wheel icon on reel one will determine which character’s feature will be in play during such. The one on reel three will power up each feature in a different way, while reel five presents you with the total amount of free
spins you will get. You can win anywhere between three and 25 free
spins in total. The following character features are present in the game:
- Stacking Stan Feature. Stan shows up in stacks below every other Stan icon during free spins. The Bonus Wheel icon on reel three will determine how many Stan symbols are seen per stack.
- Roger’s Random Wilds Feature. Roger ends up vomiting chunky random wilds on every free spin. The Bonus Wheel icon determines how many random wilds are in view per spin. This can be anywhere between two and 10 random wilds.
- Francine’s Holy Grail Feature. You need to help Klaus reach Francine’s Holy Grail. Every free spin, Klaus will show up in random positions and leave fish patches behind. If Francine lands on a position with a patch on it, she turns into an expanding wild symbol.
- Hayley’s Progressive Multiplier Feature. Hayley will collect signatures on every free spin, which increase your multiplier by one. This can go up to times 10!
- Wheels and the Legman Feature. This sees Wheels and the Legman chase across the reel set, leaving a trail of wild icons behind on every free spin.
The Final Word
It may seem like an online slot game focusing on a television series isn’t such a great thing, unless you’re a fan of the show. Fortunately, American Dad puts all that theory of thinking to the side. You see, this game is fun from beginning to end, even if you’re not a fan of the series. And the special feature rounds further enhance this to the maximum!
