Wagerworks has brought the fun and excitement of chasing cash prizes from the long-running UK game show Family Fortunes to mobile slots. If the symbols fall your way you can even take a turn at playing the iconic game show yourself.
Family Fortunes is a five-reel slot game with 20 paylines. There is no progressive jackpot and whether you cash out at the limit depends on your question-answering skill as much as luck.
Family Fortunes came to Britain from the American game show Family Feud in 1980. It has been airing ever since, pitting families against one another in a contest to match the responses of poll participants to everyday questions. The game delivers all the familiar catchphrases lovers of game shows will instantly recognize: “We asked 100 people,” “Let’s play All Star Family Fortunes,” and “Our survey said…” As the reels spin the show’s bouncy theme plays in the background. Other snippets of sound are pulled right from Family Fortunes into the app to announce the celebration of any win, so you can experience unrestrained joy just like the over-caffeinated contestants from televison.
You can play from one to 20 coins in your quest for single money, double money and, dare to dream it – “big money.” As the reels spin the purple background lights up just like the set of Family Fortunes. All line wins are multiplied by the line stake and pay left to right. Free spins are available and the star-packed Wild icon substitutes for every symbol in the game except the more important scatters, Double Money and Big Money. An Autoplay can be activated with any favorite number of spins to allow you to concentrate on your betting lines that can be changed with up and down arrows.
Double Money is triggered when three or more symbols pop up in Reels 3, 4 or 5. All cash prizes are now doubled on free spins with either a “Right Answer” or an “X” delivered to the podium at the screen bottom. The money stops piling up when three “Xs” have been registered and you are thrust back into the regular game.
Three Big Money symbols on Reels 1,3 and 5 put you right in the contestant seat of Family Fortunes. You get a series of five survey questions with six respondent choices that will add varying amounts of money to your prize stash. The top choices are revealed after all five questions and if you have matched just one top answer your winnings are doubled. The only way to qualify for the excitement of the Family Fortunes Big Money bonus game is to wager on all five lines. Good answer!
