Konami Launches Frogger Slots in Casinos

frogger-slotsNot long ago, we discussed how Rival Gaming released Frogged slots, which allows online players to relive one of the greatest arcade games of all time. Now, Konami has rolled out Frogger slots at land-based casinos across the country.

So what’s the difference?

Aside from the fact that you play Frogged online and Frogger live, both games’ backgrounds are different. Frogged is almost a replica of the 1981 arcade game since you see a highway background during the main game and a river background during the free spins bonus. Konami’s Frogger also has a highway background, but most of it’s covered up by red reels.

Another difference is that Frogger takes advantage of its large cabinet by featuring two bonus screens above the main game. Frogged obviously doesn’t have this because PCs, smartphones and tablets only offer one screen to play the game.

Other than these differences, Frogged and Frogger are very similar to each other. They both have symbols that represent the hit arcade game (frogs, various cars) and offer retro video-game sounds. Another thing: both slots are doing well with their respective audiences.

frogged-slotsLoren Gill, general manager at San Manuel Casino, told the media that players have been lining up for the Frogger machine.

“Guests have been lining up to play Frogger with such a fun energy and anticipation, you can’t help but recall the enthusiasm created by the original game when it first hit arcades,” said Gill. “Our players know we’re always working to bring them the latest slot games available, so they were thrilled to see Frogger here at San Manuel and couldn’t wait to explore the pathways to win.”

If you can’t make it to San Manuel and other land-based casinos to play Frogger, be sure to check out Frogged slots at Bovada Casino.
