Gold Money Frog Slot: Review

Gold Money Frog: Demo

Take the well-trodden path to Asia in the Gold Money Frog slot, a 5 reel, 25 payline jackpot title from NetEnt. This trip east is a simple one. The highlights are the free spins round where all payouts receive a 3x multiplier boost and the wheel bonus where you could land 1 of 3 jackpot prizes. Play this straightforward game on all devices from between 25p and £50 per spin.

Bold NetEnt design

The visuals in Gold Money Frog are bright, bold and just what we’ve come to expect from a NetEnt release. The reels are framed within a traditional building and backed by pink flowers and a pagoda. Joining the lower value A to J symbols are a kite, a red bridge and a gold emblem. The Gold Money Frog is the most lucrative of the standard symbols. It pays 20 x bet if you land 5 in combination.

5 Wilds = 300 x bet

Complementing the standard symbols is a gold wild symbol. This can appear on all 5 reels and replace all the standard symbols. The wild can be very lucrative too. Payouts of 0.2, 8, 80 or 300 x bet await if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Up to 30 free spins with a 3x multiplier

The lantern symbol is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll activate the Free Spins feature as well as receiving a payout of 5, 50 or 400 times your total bet.  Depending on the number of scatters on the triggering spin, you’ll play out 10, 20 or 30 free spins. All payouts during the feature are boosted by a 3x multiplier and trebled during this feature.

Bonus Wheel – 3 potential jackpots

The other symbol to look out for is the Bonus. Land 3 or more of these from left to right, starting from reel 1 to activate the Bonus Game feature. You’ll then get to spin the bonus wheel which is made up of 12 segments. These contain coin prizes as well as Minor, Major or Super Jackpots. The prize awarded depends on where the pointer lands. The jackpots can start as high as 500 x bet (for the Super Jackpot).

Straightforward Chinese action

There’s nothing complicated about the Gold Money Frog slot. There’s a classy look to the visuals which are backed by a catchy, Asian-themed backing track. You’ll have seen similar features in plenty of other slots. They’re both old favourites though and keep things ticking over enough to keep things interesting.

Variance wise it’s low and has a rather disappointing 92.96% RTP. If you were to fill the reels with wilds, you would technically win 7,500 x bet but the max win is a mere 714 x bet. With the low win totals and standard bonus features, Gold Money Frog is a game that doesn’t stand out at all.

If you want progressive jackpot slots that can give you life-changing sums of money, NetEnt’s Mega Fortune or Microgaming’s Mega Moolah are much better options.
