Friends is still one of the most popular sitcoms ever and is still being broadcasted all over the world, all the time.
So no surprise that their is also a Friends slot game. This game has been out for some years now in land-based casinos, but now SG Interactive has released it online.
First I will give a quick overview of all the features and bonuses of this slot game and at the end I will give you a verdict about the game, which won’t be the nicest.
Friends uses 40 lines on 5 reels, each 4 symbols high. Every symbol, including wild, may appear stacked on all reels. Bonus symbols only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
On reels 2, 3 and 4 there are stacked bonus symbols. Getting three full reels of these symbols will trigger the bonus wheel.
Spin the wheel and land on either a cash reward, or one of the following features:
- Wedding Bonus – 10 free spins with sticky wild symbols
- Thanksgiving Bonus – 10 free spins with a three times multiplier
- Party Bonus – 11 free spins with randomly 1 or 2 reels of wild symbols
- Bamboozled Bonus – Picking bonus with a maximum win possibility of 2000 times your bet
I used to be a big fan of Friends and must have watched every episode like 10 times. I am not a big fan anymore, I think the show is getting a bit dated.
But I was excited to see a Friends slot game. Well, I was very disappointed. What a boring and annoying game.
First let me say that the soundtrack, from The Rembrandts is on a loop, all the time. Not the lyrics, but the music. That song was already terrible, in my opinion and will drive you crazy while playing.
Second, the game as a land-based slot game is one of those tall slot games, with huge screens. Somehow the online version has been cropped very strange, so everything is way too tiny.
Third, the game doesn’t pay out anything during the base game. A lot of non winning spins and some small wins, less than your bet and then now and again some decent wins of maybe 10 times your bet. This makes the base game very boring as well.
Fourth, the Bonus Wheel. To be honest, the bonus features are OK. Nothing spectacular, but OK. And also the only time you might win a decent amount, when you are lucky. Because I also saw terrible wins during the free spins features.
As you can see, I don’t like this game at all! It might be a very popular theme and it might lure a lot of Friends fans to this game, but I suggest skipping it.
I also feel that SG Interactive, or WMS, is really dropping the ball lately. They used to release amazing land-based slot games like Raging Rhino, Zeus III, all the Wizard of Oz games. But these days, a lot of their earlier releases aren’t even available anymore and all their new releases are really not that great at all.
What a shame!
If you want to see for yourself if this game is as boring as I say it is, you can find it at Videoslots. Which by the way is one of the best online casinos with a massive selection of games, good promotions and fast withdrawals.
