Finally, the Bamboozled Bonus activates a picking bonus game based on a fictional, chaotic game show created for the TV series. 20 available tiles hide Hungry Money, Golden Mud Hut, Paradise Pond, Angel Pass, or Gimmie Award icons and you will have 3 chances to turn a tile over.

Friends slot has a lot of elements that may please fans of the show, but the gameplay falls short of the nostalgia value. Aside from the chance of triggering bonus features, the base game is standard, and you will have to hope to land a few wild symbols to squeeze any decent potential out. Luckily, the jackpot and bonus wheel features contain much more excitement. Either the Jackpot Wild or Bamboozled bonus give you the chance at the game’s maximum potential of $200 000 and having 2 ways to get to this top prize is a big plus.
The theme is not as imaginatively applied as some other titles based on popular entertainment franchises, which is a shame, as aside from the show’s theme playing on a loop and a few video clips, there isn’t much of an immersive experience on offer. Super-fans of the show may find enough entertainment value to spend some time with this slot, but most players are unlikely to give it more than a first go.
