Family Fortunes more than a trip down nostalgia lane

14 June 2012

For Family Feud and Family Fortunes fans (Family Fortune is the British show based on the American Family Feud), this has been a sad couple of weeks. The original Family Feud host, Richard Dawson, passed away earlier this month at the age of 79.

Dawson was a British actor who found fame and success in the United States, where he acted as Peter Newkirk in Hogan's Heroes. But he will be best remembered for hosting Family Feud, where he was know for kissing all the women on the show to wish them luck and his signature line: "Survey says...."

The Family Fortunes slots game at Sky Vegas brings the fun of the original game show back. The base slot game plays like any other 5-reel 20-line machine. Where Family Fortunes distinguishes itself is in the bonus games. The most interesting and interactive bonus feature is the Big Money bonus round. Here, you answer a series of 5 multiple choice questions. After you've answered the question, you get some money. And if any one of you're answers is the number one answer on the board (according to the people surveyed), your winnings are doubled.

The Double Money bonus is a free spins round with a twist. After each spin, one of the animated contestants, hits the buzzer (like on the game show) and offers an answer (you can't hear what they're saying, but the screen looks like the set of the show). If the answer is a "valid" one, the free spins continue. If the answer is "invalid," you get the dreaded "X." When you get three "X's," the free spin round is over.

So if you're feeling lucky, or plain old nostalgic, visit Sky Vegas and give Family Fortunes a try.
