Anyone who has ever seen ‘The Adams Family’ TV series will instantly find some familiarity when playing this slot. The spooky family in this slot features a long dark haired female and a moustachioed male, alongside two children, one slightly chubby faced boy and a dark haired pig-tailed girl. The final member of the family is a character with a resemblance to Frankenstein. Any of this sound familiar? How about if I throw in the gothic looking, towering castle? Yes, this is effectively the Adams family with another name – however, the important thing about the slot is the following question. How good is it?
This slot certainly makes an impact when you first enter. You’ll find a graveyard scene with the sound of werewolves wailing in the background with bats flying across the top of the night sky. The reels themselves are set in the middle of a gothic style gate – the left hand pillar of the gate with a skeleton hanging down below a melting candle, while a snake slithers around the right hand pillar. All of the characters at the slot are drawn in an effective cartoon style, giving the game some comedy value; this added to by the swirling animation that contorts the faces of the winning symbols.
This iSoftbet slot has five reels and twenty win lines. This number of win lines is changeable – with options of playing 5, 10, 15, 20 as well as just a single line. You’ll also choose the coin value and the coin amount, the combination of which in conjunction with the number of win lines will give you your total stake for each spin.
You’ll gain a win if landing three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line, starting with the leftmost reel. The five main characters are the top paying and for five symbols in a row you’ll win 5,000, 2,500, 1,000 and coins for the man, lady, Frankenstein and the two children respectively. The symbols are completed by the jagged looking playing card symbols from 10 to Ace.
You’ll find a standard scatter symbol which pays an immediate cash win. This is represented by a dark spiral and you’ll win if landing three or more across the reels you’ll win 5, 10 or 15 times your total stake when landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters.
The wild at the slot is a crazy looking skull wearing a little black hat. Like any other wild, it will substitute for other symbols to give additional wins (apart from the scatter and the bonus symbols). Should you not gain a win with this wild, you’ll be given a second chance, as you’ll find another wild appear on the reels.
One nice aspect to the slot is the fact that you can win a random bonus where you can actually gain up to a 10,000 coin bonus immediately. There is no pattern at all to this award – this can be awarded after any spin.
The final symbol is the gothic looking house. This is another scatter symbol which activates the bonus round – the ‘Family Pet Bonus’ starting when this scatter appears three or more times.
The bonus feature takes you to another screen where you’ll find a series of creatures and symbols each with a number attached – these symbols including an octopus tentacle, an eye and a bats wing. In the middle of the screen is a wheel featuring each of these symbols. The wheel will spin and whichever symbol the wheel stops on will give you the win amount for the symbol. This is a somewhat unusual bonus round and in some ways makes a nice change from the free spins you’ll find at the majority of online slots – once again, this round is certainly fitting for the theme, with the dark gothic feel.
This is a very entertaining slot by iSoftbet. The look of the game is very appealing and the features offer something different to your standard slots. The best feature is the ‘Family Pet Bonus’ round and alongside the random awarded bonus offers some sizable pay-outs. This is a slot that will appeal to a wide range of players, with players who are happy to wait a little longer to gain slightly bigger wins perhaps most suited to playing the Spooky Family slot.
