Visit the quirky frog at his pond on the slot from Lightning Box and watch him not just catching flies but also awarding one of three progressive jackpots. The original Frogs ‘n Flies slot from this developer just received the Temple Cash treatment. The network-linked progressives are pooled from all games in the series, which can lead to the Grand Jackpot growing to life-changing amounts.
But the frog has more surprises waiting for you at his pond. Not only does he act as a wild symbol but will also get you up to 20 free spins in the bonus round that can lead to wins of up to 4,000 times your bet.
Temple Cash: Frogs ‘n Flies is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 1,024 ways with wins being paid for adjacent symbols from left to right only. Explore the pond on desktop or mobile from 0.48 to 60 credits per spin. The medium variance game comes with a factory RTP of 95.96%.
Who is expecting a temple setting might be surprised to see none of it on the slot other than small temple icons on the centre reels that will trigger the Jackpot bonus game. The game is held in deep blue colours with a faint marsh visible through the translucent and frameless game window. The reels itself are separated by air bubbles. The displays for the three Temple Cash Jackpots are placed in the top right corner. A quirky acoustic piece provides the main audio and is only interrupted by the usual reels sound and the distinct Lightning Box win count noises.
The pay symbols from the original have been kept, meaning you will see the card royals from 9 through to A at the low end. A water lily, a turtle and a fish are the premium symbols while the frog himself is the wild symbol. However, he appears on reel two, three and four only.
The slot logo is the scatter with minimum three needed to trigger the free spins. To get into the Jackpot bonus game you will need to land three small temple icons that appear on the water bubble separators of reels two, three and four only.
Three, four or five scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger 5, 10 and 20 free spins respectively. Plus, you will be awarded a coin win of 40, 200 and 5,000 coins. In real numbers 1x, 5x and 125x your bet. The feature can be retriggered indefinitely.
During the free spins, wild flies are added to reels two, three and four to increase the chance to hit a big win. The wild frogs appear as well in the free spins. There are no other multipliers or modifiers in the bonus round.
All slots in the Temple Cash series have three pooled progressive jackpots – Mini, Major and Grand. A fixed percentage of each bet contributes to them. Unfortunately, Lightning Box has not published the base seed value for each jackpot.
You will enter the jackpot bonus game that looks like the stairway to a temple after hitting three small temple icons on the reel separators for wheel two, three and four. The game is a pick-and-click round with six levels and one Jackpot level.
The first level has 15, the second 13, the third 11, the fourth 8, the fifth and the sixth five stones. Start to pick a stone from the first level to reveal either an up-arrow with or without a coin prize, both will let you progress to the next level or an “X” that will lose one of three lives. You can pick again until either all three lives have been lost or you reach the Jackpot level.
Once at the top, a new pick-and-click screen with coins appears. Pick three matching symbols to win the Mini, Major or Grand Jackpot, which is instantly added together with the coin wins from the previous levels.
The slot was fun to play in its original form but has now an additional level of suspense added with the three progressive jackpots. In my view, one of the best games we have seen from Lightning Box.
