So no one told you life was gonna be this way tatatata! Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s DOA…!
We could simply write down all the lyrics of I’ll be there for you and call it a review. Since anyone reading it would probably get some good memories out of it. But we have to forget nostalgia and be objective! So can this Friends Slot live up to the series?
Let’s start with the positives (mostly still nostalgic): you get to play with Phoebe, Rachel and Monica as well as Ross, Chandler and Joey. This makes every spin like visiting your old friends in the coffee shop. Like many good licensed pop culture based slots, there are many funny scenes woven into the gameplay. The last purely positive feature of this slot we need to mention is the bonus wheel. Entertainment at its best.
The Friends slot started as a land based casino, and is redesigned for online casinos. This is probably why the slot has such an usual interface, with a large tv hovering over the scrolls showing you the scenes of the series. This is a great asset for a physical slot machine, but it takes valuable screen space on mobile devices.
Not all that friendly..
The bonus wheel, entertainment at its best, has one slight problem. It is really hard to unlock. And if you unlock it, there is a 50% chance that you won’t be spinning any interesting. This makes the game play sluggish and even buggy sometimes. The RTP ain’t all that either:
- Thanksgiving Bonus: 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
- Wedding Bonus: 10 free spins with a sticky wild.
- Party Bonus: 11 free spins with a walking wilds that covers one or two reels.
- Bamboozled Bonus: a pick ‘n click bonus with a potential jackpot of 2000x.
This is why we suggest alternatives that might not have your favorite tv show characters, but do have a much more interesting gameplay. And you can still play I’ll be there on the background, with a central perk background on the computer and your favorite episode of friends on the background:)
