Saturday night while waiting to be seated for dinner I played an old favorite, Frog Prince, and had a terrific experience that needs to be shared.
This slot from IGT is a 5-reel, 15-line, 5x max coin game with two magical bonuses.
The game itself is a play on the classic children’s fairy-tale book, Prince Charming, in which a prince is trapped in the body of a frog, and in order to escape from this imprisonment must be kissed by a princess.
It features symbols like castles, golden crowns, magic books – not to mention a scatter of sun and moon that magically spins a wild Frog Prince symbol and, of course, the frog prince himself.
The Kiss the Frog bonus is triggered when you get three Crowned Frog symbols in any position on second, third and fourth reels of the slot. You then go to a second screen with three frogs sitting on stones and are asked to choose one by touching the screen. The number that appears is the number of “kisses” you will get in the next stage of the bonus round.
You then touch, or “kiss,” the frog to find out what your frog turns into – a gross frog-like being, a friar, a jester, a warrior maiden, the old king or, hopefully, a handsome prince to reveal a credit amount.
You can then accept the offer or reject it and try again. You can accept or reject the win, until you have zero “kisses” left or the highest possible award is won.
The Magic Wish bonus starts when you get any combination of five Frog Prince and/or Magic Wish symbols on a played line. This is a free spin bonus and you receive up to six spins with a multiplier of up to five times your initial wager. The free spins bonus plays all 15 lines of the slot and can be re-triggered. In addition, the Kiss the Frog bonus can also be triggered during the free spins round.
I was playing 2x per line (30¢) when all of a sudden I got five wild symbols on a pay line. A first for me. This not only was the top pay in this game but also entitled me to the Magic Wish bonus. I picked my wishbook for five free spins and a magic wand for 4x pay. I won $7.35 on the bonus but the line pay on the starting screen was $172. When we were called for dinner I cashed out $197.63!
