What’s The Deal?
A spontaneously combusting amphibian is the theme of Fire Toad slot from Play’n GO. Head to Hawaii with us, Wombat fans, where volcanoes are active and exploding Fire Toads fill the reels in this medium/ high volatility game.
Let’s see if it is as bonkers as it sounds, I guess they got bored of doing fruities like the 81 Frutas Grandes slot with its 81 pay-lines. Toads it is!
Graphics and Theme
Peer through the transparent reels and you’ll see an ominous volcano perched on top of an island looking like it’s about to erupt. There’s also misty clouds and a volcanic rock beach to set the scene. It reminds me of the Aloha! Cluster Pays slot, just with more lava.
And the soundtrack is cracking! Which is something we very rarely say. A relaxed Polynesian-sounding ditty accompanies your spins and will whisk you off to the tropics before you know it.
Your premium symbols are 5 brightly-coloured gleaming toads at different stages of their froggy life cycle; from purple tadpole to bright red fire toad. Meanwhile the hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs in blue, green, yellow and purple make up the lower values.
The neon butterfly (or is it a firefly?) will act as both the wild icon and the scatter symbol in Fire Toad.
Fire Toad slot has 5 reels, 4 rows and 1024 ways to win. Not as many as the Scarab Gold slot, but still, not exactly lacking in this area. You can place your bets from 0.10 to 100.00 per spin. The highest possible win is 5,000 x your bet and we reckon this game fits into the medium- high variance category of games.
Randomly during the base game if 2x of the wild firefly icons hit the reels simultaneously, they’ll pick a random toad and upgrade all other frogs on the reels to match that same one. This should create a whole load of winning combos.
Cheers to those fireflies. They’re such friendly flutterers.
Hit 3x, 4x or 5x of the firefly wild scatters and you’ll scoop either 9, 12 or 15 spins.
At the beginning of the round, the lower-paying tadpole dude has already been upgraded, and whenever you hit another 3x or more scatters you’ll continue to upgrade all the other high-paying symbols to the next value level.
Best of all, the round can be triggered an unlimited number of times – which is about as bonza as you can get! And can mean lots of lovely lolly.
Fire Toad slot is a simple game that is all about the Symbol Upgrade feature.
The theme is a bit odd if we’re honest, but there are good wins to be made in both the base game and the bonus.
Wombat score: 3.9/5
