Beyond The Reels: Baliukonis talks Elvis Frog Trueways return

The latest episode of SlotBeats’ ‘Beyond The Reels’ saw BGaming Game Designer Alex Baliukonis take the hot seat to discuss the igaming provider’s latest title; Elvis Frog Trueways. 

The rock and roll frog title returns to provide more Elvis-inspired themes such as Las Vegas, Cadillac cars and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

Baliukonis discussed the return of the fan favourite and the key components of what makes the character and the slot appealing to customers, as the BGaming Designer highlighted that players “like to play with someone”.

He added: “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. He’s like your buddy who’s helping you to win.”

Elvis Frog Trueways is a six reel slot with up to eight rows, powered by the Trueway mechanic. The slot offers up to 262,144 ways to win, including special features such as free spins and a new coin respin game mode, which gives players a chance to win the mega jackpot prize. 

The Trueways mechanic, which Baliukonis describes as helping create a “true experience of playing a slot machine”, launches new game formats for players to interact with. 

He explained: “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. Also, 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.”
