Electracade are the developers behind the Family Fortunes slot machine, which is based on the popular UK game show of the same name. Family Fortunes was a big hit when Les Dennis hosted it and later Vernon Kay, so it is no surprise that the slot itself has become popular, especially since there are many similarities with the original game show. The slot is played over 5 reels and 20 adjustable lines, with players able to bet anything from a floor of just 0.01 per line per spin, up to a ceiling of 500.00 per spin in all. The slot is quite dated now, but can still provide decent cash prizes, some of which can be worth as much as 500x your total bet if you strike it lucky playing this nifty online slot machine.
The wild symbol is impossible to miss in this game. It appears as a purple, starry block of text. The wild symbols can substitute for all other symbols in the game save for the slot’s two bonus icons, namely the Double Money and Big Money symbols.
Each of those bonus icons will trigger special bonus rounds in this game. These take the name of the bonus rounds which featured in the show and offer players the chance to get in on a slice of traditional Family Fortunes action, just like the show.
To begin with, there is the Double Money Bonus, triggered when 3 such symbols appear on the third, fourth and fifth reels. In the bonus, players can start with an unlimited number of free games, with wins coming from right to left, as well as left to right. All wins in this feature are doubled. Once 3 red crosses appear below the reels, the bonus round ends.
The second feature is triggered by landing 3 or more Big Money icons on the reels in any position. In this feature, players can select from several answers to questions, and just like the show, they are looking for the “top answer”. Players will win money for every answer but can win big cash prizes they manage to find all of the top answers.
