Asian themed slot games never seem to go out of style which is why NetEnt provided us with Gold Money Frog. It is a 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 25 ways for the player to land a winning combo. The theme itself is common, but players will be impressed with the design. Great features and some impressive payouts are what should be expected.
The Asian theme is in the top three themes used in the making of slot games. As one of the top providers out there NetEnt knows how to make a common theme interesting to see. They outdid themselves in the making of this game and managed to provide us with something unique.
The background looks beautiful with many lotus flowers everywhere. There is also a huge traditional building contributing to the theme. The sun is setting so the sky is a beautiful purple. The design is more on the cutesy side, but it does paint a classic Asian landscape beautifully. It makes the game stand out from the crowd as one of the better ones out there.
The soundtrack is quite calming with sound effects of water dripping and frog croaks. It gives the game a Zen vibe which is a trademark of the Asian culture. The symbols are just as well designed as the rest of the game. They include the regular royals, bridges, kites, golden owls, and golden frogs. Colorful lanterns act as the scatter symbol. The game also features a wild and bonus symbol.
The prizes are also satisfying and players have the chance to win up to 2000x the stake in a single spin. The minimum a player can bet is 0, 25 and the maximum is 50 coins per spin. It is a medium volatility game, which is what many players are going to like. The only disappointing thing about this one is that the RTP is set at a below-average 92, 96%.
The features of the game are creative and quite interesting. Just like any other, the game has a wild symbol that does its regular duties of substituting for all symbols except for the scatter and bonus symbol.
Then there is the Free Spins feature that is triggered when 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. The player then gets 10, 20 or 30 free spins and depending on the number of scatter symbols a win of 4, 50, or 400 times the stake. But that is not all, every win during the free spins round is multiplied by 3. This is the feature that is going to impress the most since it is not that unlikely to be triggered and brings amazing wins in.
Last but not least, is the Bonus Game feature that is triggered when the player lands 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols on the first three reels. The player then gets to spin a wheel to win a prize of 2x the stake and 1 of 3 progressive jackpots. There are the Minor Jackpot that starts at 50 coins, the Major Jackpot that starts at 500 coins, and the Super Jackpot that starts at 5, 000 coins.
Overall, the game is a good one. The theme is common, but the designers managed to make the game look unique. The features are quite impressive as well, and most importantly they pay quite well with a bit of luck. The only bad part is the low RTP, but it can be dealt with. The game is one for the players who like the fun and artsy side of the game.
