Grog, for those of you that don’t know, is any variety of an alcoholic beverage. It originally described a drink made of water and rum, but it is now associated with different drinks. Apart from alcoholic beverages, grog is often used as another term for magical potions in fairytales.
Many fairytales also revolve around frogs. Mythical creatures on their own, frogs are often used as an ingredient in cauldron brews in many tales. Thunderkick recently decided to “marry” the idea of frog and grog, crafting an impressive slot which is even crazier than it sounds.
The Frog Grog slot looks stunning. Set inside a medieval lab, you can see numerous inviting potions filled with moths and plants on the shelves. In true horror fashion, there’s a skull in the background on the right side, with a dim candle providing light in the lab. The animations look perfect and the soundtrack is exciting, which shouldn’t come as a surprise knowing that the slot was developed by Thunderkick’s creative geniuses.
Boasting an RTP of 96.1%, the Frog Grog online slot pays just around the industry standard. Indian online casino players will surely want a taste of the massive max win prize of 161,000 coins. With a medium to high volatility, you’re not likely to win often. However, when you land high-paying symbols on the reels, you can expect massive prizes.
Instead of traditional reels, Frog Grog has wooden shelves which hold the potions (grog). Technically, the slot has 5 reels in 3 rows with 23 betways. You can place bets ranging from €0.10 to €100. There are plenty of prizes to be won in this slot – to unlock the biggest ones, you’ll have to max your bets out.
As is to be expected, the symbols on the reels are all potions. There’s a blue, green, red, and purple potion, plus two more which have a moth and thistle (probably) inside. Of all these high-paying symbols, the moth potion pays the most – five on a pay line will bring you a prize worth 10 times your stake.
Even though it looks pretty unusual for an online slot, Frog Grog is simple to play. Instead of spinning reels, you get dropping symbols on the shelves. Every time you win a line, the symbols included in it are replaced by new ones, potentially bringing you another winning combination.
The wild symbol in this game is a frog. Just like all wilds, it replaces all symbols on the reels apart from the scatter, but also serves another purpose in the Frog Grog slot. After it presents all pay line wins, the wild will eliminate all symbols on its row and reel except for frogs, which remain in place for the duration of the game. As soon as a wild becomes a part of a win, it will be removed.
The Frog Grog online slot lacks a traditional bonus game, which is replaced by an interesting mystery game. It is triggered randomly when there are no dropping symbols on the reels. During this game, all symbols are eliminated except for the Frog wilds, moth and thistle potions. All the symbols that are removed award enticing win up to a count of 5.
On the left side of the slot, you’ll see a multiplier that goes up to 7x. It rises whenever you land a win. If you’re so lucky to line up a number of wins, it will grow up pretty high, boosting your winnings pretty nicely.
There’s no question that Frog Grog is a unique and interesting game from one of the best developers in the industry. Even though there’s no bonus round to get excited about, the rising multiplier, dropping symbols, and mystery game are just enough to fill that void.
The wild frog symbol can be a part of amazing winning combinations. Add the up to 7x multiplier to it, and you can expect a solid payout. So, get a taste of the frog grog – it’s definitely more delicious than it sounds.
