In March 2016 Rival released another slots buster titled Frogged. The game has 20 paylines and 5 reels. If you’re wondering what the theme of the slots machine is all about. Your mission is to guide the friendly frog back home by avoiding on coming traffic and a river filled with dangerous fish and alligators. The slots is available in the download or instant play. The total jackpot that can be won per payline is $2,500.
Frogged is a vibrant game that features colorful icons like the frog, bulldozers, snakes, alligators, vehicles and symbols from 9 to A. It’s a non progressive game flushed with wilds, free spins bonus rounds and expanding wilds. The average return to the player is 94.5%. To be honest this is not much but because it’s Rival’s latest release it’s worth giving it a go.
To me Frogged is a classic arcade game. There are 10 bet lines. The coin bet starts with a mere $0.01 up to $0.25. Since there are 20 payline you can decide how many paylines you want to play. The total default bet is $2. This game will be a treat to low and medium rollers. My gut feeling tells me that high-end players might shy away from this one but you never know.
I’m happy to see that Rival added a bonus round to this game. The free spins bonus round is unlocked when you hit 3 or more Mr Frog symbols. You’ll note that a retro video game rounds opens up. Mr Frog will be teleported to the River Rapids round when three or more free spins symbols are hit. During this section of the game you must help Mr Frog dodge turtles, logs, snakes and alligators. Be on the lookout for the sticky symbol (wild fly) that sticks to the reel, it awards one re-spin.
Upward expanding wilds with a multiplier appears during the base game and awards a multiplier of 2x during the free spins. Unique symbols also appear during the river and road stages. If they do they award additional wins. When the sticky wilds grace the reels in the River Rapids game, re-spins are awarded. Note, during the re-spins the wilds will stick to the reels. This is a handy feature since it awards additional payouts.
At a glance Frogged looks like an exciting ”little” slots. You’ll note that I’ve placed special emphasis on little due to its small maximum jackpot payout. To be honest this game won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but if you’re looking for something different it might be a welcome change of scenery.
