The latest episode of Beyond the Reels sees Alex Baliukonis, Game Designer at BGaming, join CasinoBeats’ Business Journalist, Danny Lee, to discuss one of the supplier’s latest sparkling slot titles, Elvis Frog Trueways.
Elvis Frog Trueways is a six reel slot with up to eight rows, using the studio’s Trueways mechanic to offer up to 262,144 ways to win. The game has special futures including free spins and a coin respin game mode, which gives players the chance to win a mega jackpot prize.
This slot sees the return of the amphibious rock and roll star, which Baliukonis stated is a key component in the success of this game as players “like to play with someone”.
He continued: “It’s always great when you get that big win and somebody can celebrate it with you. So Elvis Frog is about emotional design and retention. Above that, he’s also part of the game and all the greatest features are triggered by him.”
“He can bring you a multiplier. He can bring you free spins. So he’s like your buddy who’s helping you to win.”
This recent Elvis Frog slot uses the studio’s Trueways mechanic, with Baliukonis stating that BGaming launched the new game format in a bid to “make a true experience of playing a slot machine, but online.”
When explaining the game’s features, Baliukonis said: “The main character, Elvis Frog, plays the role of the wild and can replace any symbol in a winning combination. In free spins, he has a wild multiplier which gives the ability to increase the winnings.”
He continued: “Also, in the mechanics of Trueways, we have got the hold and spin mechanic, which is very popular amongst players. If you get six or more scatters, you are going to get from 12 to 20 free spins.”
