Playtech, the online gaming company which has already given us a range of superb officially-licenced titles, including Top Gun and Superman, has just launched a premium-branded slot based on the award-winning animated series, American Dad! This new title will be available on all channels, platforms and devices, enabling players to spend time with the Smith family from any location that allows them to connect to the internet.

For readers who are not familiar with the series, American Dad! is an animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker (both of whom co-created Family Guy) and Matt Weitzman. The first episode aired in February 2005, and the show revolves around Republican CIA agent Stan Smith, his family (wife Francine, son Steve and daughter Hayley) and their housemates (Roger, an alien who came to Earth in 1947 in the Roswell UFO incident, and Klaus, a goldfish who hosts the mind of an East German athlete and retains the accent).

Whilst the concept might sound absurd (and it is), the comedy that arises from it is hard to dispute, and the new American Dad! slots title from Playtech includes plenty of humour that will make fans of the show feel right at home.

The game itself has 5 reels and 40 pay lines, and is set against the stripes of the American flag, with an appropriately patriotic colour scheme of red, white and blue. Symbols include each of the main characters from the show, and a ‘Schmooblydong Wheel’. 

The Roger symbol is Wild, and substitutes for any other, with the exception of the aforementioned Schmooblydong Wheel, whilst the Schmooblydong Wheel itself is one that can trigger respins and free games. Get Wheels on the first and third reels to trigger a respin, or get Wheels on the first, third and fifth reels to trigger free games. In the latter cases, each Wheel is spun to determine the parameters of the free games, including which character feature will be activated and how many free games will be awarded.

We won’t go into the details of each character’s feature game, as that would spoil the surprise somewhat. Suffice it to say that they are all quite different, and will bring a smile to the face of anyone who is acquainted with the television show. Players who aren’t so well acquainted, on the other hand, may find some of the features a little bizarre, and we will let you discover why in your own time.

'American Dad! is another top casino title and a fantastic addition to our leading portfolio of premium-branded games,’ said James Frendo, Playtech's casino director. ‘Based on one of the world’s most popular animated sitcoms, this vibrant, feature-rich game stands out in the market and provides players with unique and high-quality entertainment.’

Playtech games can be played at Ladbrokes Casino and other venues.
