Fortune Frog from RTG Slots is a somewhat unusual slot game. In this game, you will find special features such as the Frog Bombs and Cascading Reels. You will not find the standard scatters and wilds as seen in most slot games. The graphics are clear and of good quality although some of the symbols are somewhat simplistic. There are five reels and three rows in this 20 pay line slot. Each space on the reels is in the shape of a hexagon, creating a beehive style shape to the reels. The reels are set on a background of a rain forest, and when you spin the reels, the Fortune Frog sends the symbols to the reels. The frog sits in front of the reels, and opens his mouth when he shoots the symbols onto the reels.
You can place bets ranging from 0.10 up to 5.00 per spin. The game saves the progress for the different betting amounts. Symbols on the reels include purple, red, green and golden creatures. Lower paid symbols include blue, green, pink and red gem stones. There are also four Frog Bombs on the reels in green, blue, pink and red. While the reels may look a bit unusual because of the hexagonal shapes, you will soon get used to the winning pay lines. You can press the lightning bolt to speed up play, and you can spin a single spin or set the Auto Play feature if you prefer to let the computer spin the reels for you.
When it comes to fixed payouts, the best payout comes with a win of 150x the line bet. You will find the bigger wins from the cascading feature and the Frog Bombs feature. The maximum win for a single spin is 50,000x the line bet. The slot has low volatility which means you are likely to make more frequent, but smaller, wins. At different stages of the game, the RTP (return to player) can be as high as 97.5% or as low as 91%.
When there is a winning combination, the winning symbols disappear and new symbols fall into their places. This includes both regular winning combinations along with the spaces opened up by Frog Bombs. If new winning combinations form when new symbols cascade onto the reels, they are paid out and also disappear from the reels. This continues until there are no more winning combinations formed. Players cannot take any actions while the cascading feature takes place. Once this feature is complete, the spin button is available for players to take the next spin.
Frog Bombs appear on the reels as a number value. They can appear during regular spin and during the cascading wins feature. The Frog Bombs appear with random numbers between one and three. The number counts down for each spin or when cascading wins exchange symbols. At zero, the Frog Bombs explode. The different color Frog Bombs explode in different patterns.
Frog Bombs can disappear before they get to zero if they are affected by the blast of another bomb. In the spaces that explode, a random symbol will take the place of all the open spaces. The same symbols appear in all the open spaces, making it more likely that you will achieve a winning combination. If there are overlapping Frog Bomb explosions, the same random symbol will cover all the open spaces.

We think that Fortune Frog is an interesting and somewhat unusual slot game. The beehive style reels, along with the frog who shoots the symbols onto the reels, makes this slot more interesting than many standard slots. We do miss the regular slot features such as scatters, wilds and free spins. The game does compensate for these missing features with cascading wins and the explosive Frog Bomb special feature. Both these features help create additional winning combinations.
As with all slots, the game would be better with a jackpot or progressive jackpot feature, and the gamble feature would also be nice. Despite this slot having only more unusual special features, it is certainly worth playing. While the game has low variance and wins might be smaller, we do win more often than slots of higher variance.
