Frogs Fairy Tale is a magically themed 5 reel, 10 payline video slot from Novomatic. Unlike many games from this developer, Frogs Fairy Tale is packed full of features including free spins, stacked reels, multipliers and mega reels. Also on offer is a potentially massive progressive jackpot. See if this frog turns into a handsome prince from between 40p and £40 per spin.

An enchanted forest is the setting for Frogs Fairy Tale – joining the lower value A to 10 playing cards are a castle, gold coin, selection of gems and a crown which awards 25 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline. The cheeky looking green frog is the wild, replacing all other symbols bar the bonus – land 5 of these on a payline and a bumper haul of 1,000 times your stake will be heading to the cashier.

There are plenty of extras on offer in Frogs Fairy Tale – the first can be triggered at random on any spin. When the reels are spinning, the frog perched at the top of the screen can flick his tongue and start eating flies. A multiplier increases with eat fly eaten. The total multiplier is then applied to any winning combinations once the spin is complete. This is known as the Frog Bonus feature.

To trigger the other features, you’ll need to land 3 of the lily pad bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then be shown a pond full of lily pads. Start picking. Land 3 of the same symbol to trigger that feature:

Free Spins Bonus feature – these are played out on enhanced reels. As well as the standard frog wild, the princess symbol will also appear as a stacked wild. Land the frog and the princess on the same spin and the frog will turn into a stacked wild prince symbol.

Enchanted Stream Bonus feature – this is a cash trail. Move along the trail by pressing on the leaf. The further you make it, the bigger the multiplier prizes on offer. Reach the end of the trail and you’ll trigger the Golden Ball Bonus feature.

Golden Ball Bonus feature – here you’ll be given a pick of 5 golden balls that have been dropped into a pond. Choose an area of water to reveal a golden ball and even bigger multiplier prizes.

Colossal Spin Bonus feature – the symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 are replaced by 1 giant symbol which is the equivalent of 9 standard symbols. You’re guaranteed to land a winner on all 20 paylines here which can lead to some spectacular results if the other 2 reels fall nicely.

Princess Prize Bonus feature – the Princess blows a kiss and awards cash prizes as she does.

Frogs Fairy Tale also comes with a progressive jackpot – to trigger it, you’ll first need to land 3 scatters to trigger the Lily Pad Bonus feature. Pick 5 progressive symbols from the pond and you’ll be walking away with the big one.

This video slot is a break from Novomatic’s norm – it looks and sounds excellent which is a step up from many of the developer’s more stripped back games. The range of features is also good too, offering a nice variety. As far as variance goes, Frogs Fairy Tale is in the medium to high category so expect some lengthy winless spells punctuated with the occasional decent payer.

Frogs Fairy Tale is a solid offering. Get lucky with those features and the frog can make this a real Prince Charming of a game. If you like fairytale themed offerings, NetEnt’s Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood is worth playing.
