A refreshing but petite taste of Frog Grog this autumn
Thunderkick players aren’t going to find Frog Grog very hard to swallow this autumn.
This refreshing cocktail of a funky theme and imagery, tantalising wagers, special bonuses, and, well…mediocre jackpot prizes, all make Frog Grog a slot which does down rather easily, and one you may wish to try.
Launched by Thunderkick this autumn, the new slot machine is all about witchcraft, in particular witchcraft related to frogs. Of course, there is no better time to release a witchcraft themed slot than Halloween, is there? This is exactly what Thunderkick has done, largely in a bid to lure in online slot players this spooky season.
Players are going to find that Frog Grog offers an unusual 5-reel, 23-line setup, with players able to potentially win as much as 10x their total bet (that bit’s not so good), on this wonderfully designed slot machine game.
What we love
You can’t beat the look and feel of this slot. Thunderkick has done a stellar job with this. Take the bookcases for instance. They represent the reels of the game, upon which sit bottles of liquid (symbols on the reels). Before them, a bubbling cauldron adds the dramatic effect of the game.
It doesn’t just look good. Frog Grog contains a cascading reels feature (or avalanche reels, if you prefer), which can see players pocket multipliers and additional winnings for single spins. All you have to do is bag consecutive wins and you will get to keep on bagging new symbols for those which appeared in winning combinations.
We’ve seen this structure time and time again in some of the more popular slots on the net, but scarcely ever in Thunderkick games. In total, these multipliers can rise as high as 7x the normal rate of pay.
What we do not like
The jackpot is this slot is a bit of a flop, too. Players can only hope to win 10x their total bet with the jackpot paying icons. This means that on a minimum bet, you’re looking at a top win of $1. On a maximum wager bet, the top prize is $1,000. It is hardly thrilling stuff is it?
Of course, if you were able to pocket multiple jackpot wins using the cascading reels feature in this game, you could potentially win 7x multipliers on those winnings – so 70x your total bet.
Total winnings of $7 up to $7,000; that is far more like it. The chance of doing this, as well as the odds of landing the jackpot as it is, is increasingly remote, though.
Elements of it are, yes. Frog Grog has a cracking theme, nice features, and a cheap wagering range. The jackpot is a bit of a downer, but you can’t have everything. There does seem to be more reason to praise this slot than criticise it, though, and we for one would be willing to give it another go.
