Frog of Riches Megaways slot review
Frog of Riches Megaways slot is the fourth Megaways developed by Roxor Gaming (ex Gamesys) and like the third, Double Bubble Megaways in that it’s based on an older Gamesys slot. It's actually a variation of Blueprint's Eye of Horus Megaways feature-wise and little like Bonanza or other classic ones. You have an oriental theme and symbols here along with gentle music to complete the look, nothing too extraordinary. So can these frogs make our bankroll jump a bit or will our cash end up croaked?
On the reels...
You will see 2-7 rows on each of the 6 reels therefore 64-117649 ways to win are possible on Frog of Riches Megaways. Winning symbols are not replaced by cascades and there's no top scroll of 4 single tiles either. The symbols are single or stacked on Frog of Riches Megaways, the top-paying 6-of-a-kind symbol is Red Dragon paying 20x stake, then Blue Dragon 4x, Turtle 2x, Lion 1x with six card values of 0.5 or 0.4x. Wilds can appear on reels 2-5 and you can get them double stacked or two separate ones can land on a single reel, each will display a random 2-5x multiplier which are multiplicative if more than one reel has them! Mystery Chests can appear randomly on any spin and don't guarantee a win. the final symbol, appearing on all 6 reels, is the Logo scatter.
We have a version here of the Eye of Horus Megaways bonus as mentioned above, but with far more potential. Land 3+ scatters for 12 free spins, with +4 for each one over the 3 for a maximum of 24 spins. Each scatter landing will do one upgrade to the premium picture symbols which are laid out in a line of 6 above the reels. They also award +1 extra spin but rarely when more than one lands, more spins are given i.e. 3 for two scatters, 6 for 3. So if you land 5+ scatters over the duration of the Frog of Riches Megaways bonus, all picture symbols on the reels will be the top-paying Red Dragon for any remaining spins and don't forget, you can still land the multiplier wilds so there's 20,000x potential here!
If you land 3 Purple Jackpot symbols, you'll be shown a grid of 20 single reels from which you then choose to spin one a time. When you eventually count 4 of any colour jackpot symbol you get the matching prize. There are 4 fixed jackpot amounts of 10, 25, 100 and 500x stake but also a Frog of Riches Megaways network progressive seeded at an initial 20,000 if it's your lucky day!
Frog of Riches Megaways slot has a RTP of 94.87% which includes 1.21% for the progressive contribution. It is a decent looking slot with easy sounds and animations along with good base game hits when you get a few multiplier Wilds landing for you. The bonus tends to pay well but is hard to hit and all about the upgrades and extra spins. Get the maximum upgrade for a few spins left and see a couple of multiplier Wilds land in a big 6OAK combination and the win can be huge. It's far better than the Blueprint version Eye of Horus MW in my opinion but as I said, don't expect frequent bonuses. Get lucky on this and the shouting could well leave a frog in your throat...
