Enjoy some cartoon waterside adventure in Frogs ‘n Flies, a 5 reel, 1,024 ways to win video slot from Lightning Box Games. The graphics may be simple but there’s plenty of action on show here courtesy of the bonus feature that offers up to 20 free spins as well as added bonus wilds. Get splashing from between 40p and £20 per spin.

The first thing to consider in Frogs ‘n Flies is the game engine – instead of traditional paylines, winning combinations are formed when the same symbol lands on successive reels. In this case, it all adds up to 1,024 ways to win which keeps the pace bubbling along nicely.

Set against a deep blue freshwater pond with air bubbles separating the reels, symbols include water lilies, turtles and bright yellow fish as well as playing cards from A to 9. They’re drawn cartoon style and though perfectly acceptable look a little dated against the lavish HD representations we’ve become accustomed to with other developers.

The jolly green frog is the game’s wild – it only appears on reels 2 and 4 and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the scatter. The Frogs ‘n Flies Logo is that scatter – landing 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels will deliver payouts of 1, 5 or 125 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the bonus feature and receive 5, 10 or 20 free spins (depending on how many scatters you hit).

There’s a Brucie Bonus in the feature too in the form of the Bonus Wild which appears on the middle 3 reels – these come in addition to the standard frog wild which is also in play during the feature. You can trigger more free spins too if the scatters appear during the feature with once again up to 20 on offer.

Given the placid watery setting, it’s perhaps not surprising that Frogs ‘n Flies isn’t the most volatile slot you’ll come across as it’s on the low side of medium. Expect plenty of smaller wins thanks to the 1,024 ways to win game engine. The bonus feature triggers fairly regularly too so you shouldn’t be waiting too long for action in the cashier.

Frogs ‘n Flies is a simple slot, both in terms of visuals and features. If you’re after some easy to play, low bother action then this watery escapade should do nicely. However, if you want more volatility, there are plenty of underwater-themed slots like Novomatic’s Lord of the Ocean and WMS Gaming’s Nemo’s Voyage being highly recommended.
