Frogs Fairy Tale is powered by Novomatic and has been produced in co-operation with Mazooma (which is owned by Novomatic now) – it has 5 reels and 20 paylines and can be played from 40p to £40 a spin. The game is a progressive jackpot slot too which can be played on mobile, tablet and desktop devices.
The game, aesthetically, is green as this is the colour of the little frog which can turn gold coins, jewels and more into twists. Set in a dreamy fairy-tale forest, there are plenty of bonus features to benefit from – there are 7 in fact! The frog king is key to the game’s theme as he sits on the top right-hand corner above the reels.
Firstly, you have the Frog Bonus feature which is triggered randomly as the frog can start eating flies – each fly he eats increases the bonus multiplier.
Then you have the Lily Pad Bonus feature which is played when you get 3 Lily Pad scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously – you are then taken to the bonus lake where you pick from the lily pads to reveal bonus symbols. Matching 3 symbols will trigger 1 of 4 bonus features. If you find 5 Jackpot symbols, you will win the progressive jackpot prize.
As for the bonus features, you have the Free Spins Bonus feature where you will receive 5 free spins on enchanted reels. Look out for the stacked Wild Princess symbol which appears as well as the Wild Frog. If both the princess and frog appear on a free spin, the frog turns into a prince with a kiss – a stacked Wild Prince symbol!
Then you have the Enchanted Stream Bonus feature where you press the leaf to reveal either a number of moves along the Enchanted Stream, a love heart that increases the prizes on offer, a frog which moves you forward or collect which ends the feature.
If you reach the end of the stream, you will then play the Golden Ball Bonus feature – you will be presented with 5 golden balls with multipliers on them which fall into the pond. You then pick one to win a prize up to 300 times your stake!
The Colossal Spin Bonus allows you to spin the reels with all symbols on the first 3 reels replaced with Colossal Reel symbol – this guarantees you a win on all 20 paylines! Finally, there is the Princess Prize Bonus feature where the princess blows you some kisses rewarding you with cash prizes – each kiss increases the prize on offer.
Frogs Fairy Tale is definitely an entertaining slot game with plenty going on – it doesn’t use the classic Novomatic soundtrack which can be seen as a bonus. In the variance stakes, it’s somewhere in the middle which means nicely balance gameplay and payouts.
I found the free spins feature to be the most rewarding especially when you get a few stacked Wild Prince symbols. If you like Novomatic offerings, you should try Showgirls and Gorilla which are the newer generation of games.
