Gold Money Frog Slot Review
NetEnt started 2020 off by releasing a brand new jackpot, which is always good news – the fact that it was a homage to one of its classic games, Super Money Frog, was even better.
But, does this newer oriental-themed jackpot stand up to scrutiny on its own and is it worth a play? Let’s find out.
Straight off the bat, this game has a mix of interesting features for you to explore with its Free Spins multiplier, bonus game (featuring a bonus wheel) and 3 separate progressive jackpots.
The game itself doesn’t have an abundance of features, but those included offer you multiple opportunities to increase the payout potential of this release.
Gold Money Frog comes with 4 default bet levels, letting you between €0.25 and €50 per spin. During the base game, the maximum win you can hope to achieve is 2000x your stake, but you can also win 1 of 3 Jackpots ranging in difficulty from minor to super. The hit frequency in the main game is 49.35%.
Just like with most newer slots, Gold Money Frog contains Wild Symbols that will swap with all other symbols, except Scatter and Bonus symbols, to improve your chances of a landing a winning combination.
Wild symbols pay the highest possible winning combination on a bet line – so these are the icons you want to be aiming for!
To activate the Free Spins mode, you’ll need to hit 3 lantern Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels and the more you can land, the more Free Spins you’ll receive in return.
|Scatter Symbols||Free Spins Awarded|
|3 Scatters||10 Free Spins|
|4 Scatters||20 Free Spins|
|5 Scatters||30 Free Spins|
During the Free Spins mode, any wins that you get are multiplied by 3!
Gold Money Frog Jackpots
To be in with a chance of winning from one of Gold Money Frogs jackpots, you’ll first need to score 3 of the Bonus Symbols.
When you do, the slot will transform into a Bonus Wheel that’s made up of 12 segments:
- 4 Segments will give you a coin win
- 4 Segments award you with the Minor Jackpot
- 3 Segments award you with the Major Jackpot
- 1 Segment awards you with the Super Jackpot
How Likely Are You To Win These Jackpots?
Jackpot games can often feel like carrots on sticks. The Jackpots encourage us to play in the hope of winning big, but how likely is it to actually win the big bucks on Gold Money Frog?
Before releasing this game on 6th January, NetEnt ran a simulation of 300 billion game rounds and came up with the following odds for each jackpot:

Gold Money Frog Verdict
If you’re looking for a revolutionary new Jackpot game with lots of cool innovative features – this isn’t it. Instead, it’s more of an oriental reskin of a time-tested classic, Super Lucky Frog.
Still, players can win tremendous amounts on this 3-tiered Jackpot game – around €35,700, according to NetEnt!
We recommend trying this one out for yourself – who knows perhaps you’ll love it, but in the long scheme of things, NetEnt has definitely released better jackpots that stand up better in recent months such as Mercy Of The Gods and Imperial Riches.
