With companies like NetEnt releasing new online slot games packed with more features and eye-catching themes, a half-baked slot game would just result in that particular slot game getting lost in a myriad of existing titles. Unless the variance is high, online slot games need to offer interesting features to make themselves stand-out in the competition. That’s why NetEnt Gold Money Frog is a strange release, as it comes packed light in features and a very low RTP of 92.96%. So let’s take a closer look at this NetEnt release and see if it has any tricks up its sleeve.
NetEnt Gold Money Frog – Overview
NetEnt’s Gold Money Frog slot game is played on 5 reels over 25 paylines. With a coin range of 25p to £50, NetEnt’s Gold Money Frog features upto 30 free spins and a 3x multiplier and this online slot game can be played across all devices.
Before we jump into a detailed review of NetEnt’s Gold Money Frog, let’s take a look at the basic slot game information:
- Number of reels: 5
- Paylines: 25
- Coin range: 25p to £50
- Jackpot: Yes
- Bonus Rounds: Upto 2
- Free Spins: Upto 30

Visual theme and symbols
Visually, NetEnt’s Gold Money Frog has an Asian theme, with a background oriental music adding to the overall experience. In terms of graphics, NetEnt could have done better, especially with the new titles NetEnt has been releasing. Symbols in this game include A, K, Q and J; along with gold frogs, gold owls, red lanterns and bridges. Gold frogs are the highest value symbols in this game, with a potential value up to 20 times the stake when getting 5 symbols in combination.
The wild symbol has the usual function of substituting all symbols except for the scatter symbols. Getting a combination of 2, 3, 4 or 5 symbols would result in a payout of 0.2, 8, 80 or 300 times the stake. Winning combinations are formed through matching symbols across reels.
Free Spins feature
NetEnt’s Gold Money Frog has a Free Spin feature with nothing special to boast about. By getting 3 lanterns of different colors, the Free Spin is activated, with free spins between 10 and 30, depending on the combination the player lands on. A 3x multiplier is also at play for all winnings.
Bonus Game feature
The Bonus Game feature is activated when 3, 4 or 5 Bonus Wheel symbols are displayed in succession, starting from reel 1. Once the feature is activated, the player gets to spin the wheel and gain upto payouts worth 2 times the stake. The players can also achieve three kinds of jackpots here –
Minor – From £50 onwards
Major – From £500 onwards
Super – From £5,000 onwards
Now let’s take a closer look at NetEnt’s Gold Money Frog in action. At 01:10, we can see the player landing on three Bonus symbols on the first three reels. We then see the plater spinning the Bonus Wheel and landing on 25. Now the player has 25 free spins and at 03:37, we see the player achieving a Big Win of 450 coins. And that’s it, NetEnt’s Gold Money Frog offers only the above mentioned features, and achieving a Super Mega Win is realistically highly unlikely.
Keeping in mind the visually rich and feature packed titles NetEnt has been releasing, Gold Money Frog is a disappointing offering. With a low RTP of 92.96%, it’s safe to say that this NetEnt online slot game will not draw much attention from online slot players. While it can appeal to online slot players who don’t need much in terms of visuals and something that’s more recreational, Gold Money Frog’s low variance doesn’t really offer much in terms of appeal.
