Spooky Family Introduction
If you have ever seen the television series The Addams Family, then Spooky Family might well look a little familiar. While not an official spin-off of the creations of American cartoon maestro Charles Addams, the fictional family members certainly give you the spooky sensation that you have seen them somewhere before.
The original group of characters in the Addams Family included Morticia, Gomez, Uncle Fester, Lurch Pugsley, Wednesday, and Thing. If you have ever seen them, you cannot fail to notice the resemblance to the Spooky Family. The pokie family features a woman with long, dark hair like Morticia, a moustachioed Gomez-type man, a dark haired ‘Wednesday’ girl and a chubby-faced boy who could well be Pugsley himself.
Then, of course, there is the appearance of the Frankenstein character. Hello Lurch! Even the gothic castle makes you think of the freaky family first seen by many at the end of the 1930s. Play this Pokie Free, if it's not your cup of tea try the 1000+ other Free Pokies we have here!
The Addams inspiration
Just in case you have no idea who the Addams Family are (where have you been?), here is a quick lowdown. They were originally intended as an inverse idea of the perfect American family - one that was wealthy but weird and whose members seemed totally oblivious to the effect they had on others. The characters made their first appearance within an unrelated, 150-strong group of single-panel cartoons.
Half of these were published on the pages of the New Yorker between 1938 and 1988, the year of Addams’s death. Since then, the family has been incorporated in a huge array of different media formats, from live and animated films and musicals to video games and online pokies.
A new era for the family
It might not have the Addams name, but Spooky Family has plenty of appeal in itself. There is certainly no shortage of atmosphere and spooky spectacles, from the graveyard scene complete with bats and wailing werewolves to the reels set in a gothic gate, melting candle, skeleton and slithering snake. The animation adds to the atmosphere, as do the cartoon-style characters who manage to inject just enough humour to the proceedings.
The symbols, meanwhile, follow the theme. From spooky playing card symbols to the characters themselves, the family feel continues throughout.
Nothing to be afraid of
Spooky Family is a 20-payline poke that is really easy to play. There are also plenty of betting choice to suit all tastes - and levels of bravery. There are bonus symbols in the form of skull wilds and spiral circle scatters. Surprisingly, there is no set prize for getting five skull wilds on a payline, but prepare for a haul if you spin in at least three scatters.
Meet the family pet
Spooky Family offers extra winning potential in the form of the Family Pet bonus game. Feed the weird and wonderfully creative creatures and see what your rewards will be. There are as many as 250,000 coins available. The main game also features a minor bonus: the end of a spin can randomly result in the appearance of a skeletal hand to give you some coins.
These are immediately credited, even if the spin did not appear to be a winner. How's that for a handout?
