Fortune Frog Skillstar Review
A sequel to Chicken Fox 5x, the first release in the Skillstar series from Lightning Box, the Fortune Frog Skillstar enjoys a near-identical setup but in a completely different location. The country theme this time is moved to the Far East and boasts a mix of lucky charms from Asian culture. The most fortunate is the wild frog, as it comes with a 5x multiplier, but until you reach the coin catching bonus round, it won’t bring you any fortunes. The Skillstar mini-game is also fun, making the slot quite catchy, but if you can’t win from it, are you just wasting time? Read our slot review below to find out.

Fortune Frog Skillstar Bonus Features
Initially, the game has 3 bonus features, but if you strip it of its optional Skillstar mini-game and take away the Buy Bonus function, you’re left with just one – free spins. To clarify, buying free spins is not an option for UK players and the mini-feature doesn’t impact your gameplay in any way, whereas the free spins bonus round is where the magic happens.
Three wild symbols appear in Fortune Frog Skillstar. One is a lady wild that only shows during the base game, and the other two, frog and frog5x, appear in the free games only. As usual, the lady wild substitutes for all paying symbols except scatters. On the other hand, the toads substitute for all golden coin symbols but won’t replace each other.
There’s one more frog to take note of in this Oriental slot, and that’s the bonus symbol, appearing in the base game only. Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters awards 8, 12 or 20 free games, respectively.
Within the free spins bonus round, you’ll only have frogs, coins and Ingot symbols appearing on the reels. All coins have random cash values of up to 40x, and if they land together with a frog, the toad will roll out its long sticky tongue and collect all cash in view. If the same toad catches a pretty blue Ingot symbol, you’ll win 1-5 free spins. Ideally, you’ll want to land the beastly frog5x alongside coins. That’s because not only will it multiply all cash in view 5x but it will also boost your current free spins counter 5x too.
Used for the second time in a slot game by the developer, the interactive Skillstar mini-game has no monetary value and is added for fun only. It triggers just before free spins start and has you helping frogs cross the water safely using the up and down buttons on your keyboard. If you fail to save 3 frogs, the game is over, but you don’t have to play it all. Just skip it if all you want to do is play the free spins bonus round.
Fortune Frog Skillstar Jackpot
There are no jackpotsadded to this game, but if you’re fortunate, the frogs will catch you just enough coins to win a prize of 4,672x your stake.
