Slot Gods spoke with Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer at Relax Gaming to find out what to expect from the Dream Drop Jackpot
Only last month, Relax Gaming unveiled its impressive Dream Drop Jackpot due to be released alongside the highly anticipated Temple Tumble 2. This five-tiered progressive jackpot looks to shake up the iGaming industry as it presents a unique offering that delivers a guaranteed win to players every time they enter the Dream Drop Jackpot feature.
This new jackpot will be featured in future titles from Relax Gaming as well as its partners offering something different to players. Ahead of the release of the upcoming slot Temple Tumble 2 and the Dream Drop Jackpot, we spoke to Simon Hammon, the Chief Product Officer at Relax Gaming, to uncover more about this remarkable jackpot and what makes it so special.
The Dream Drop Jackpot launches next week alongside the release of Temple Tumble 2, how important is it that the jackpot is bundled with a highly anticipated slot?
Simon: It felt pivotal to everyone involved in the development of Dream Drop that we debut this exciting new Jackpot alongside a headline-grabbing slot, and we genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better release than Temple Tumble 2.
The Temple Tumble series has become synonymous with players for being well-crafted, visually stunning and lots of fun to play. Cluster Tumble, the release that followed the 2019 original built on the storyline and enhanced the gameplay, so to be able to deliver the latest iteration with a progressive jackpot already built-in feels incredibly special.

Progressive Jackpots aren’t something we’ve seen from Relax Gaming before, what was it that prompted you to develop your own?
Simon: There are some impressive jackpot products on the market right now, but if we’re being honest, we believe it’s stagnated over the last few years, and we felt that we could come up with a fresh new approach.
We’re proud to have some of the best and brightest minds in iGaming under our roof at Relax Gaming, so we set them on a mission to work out how we could shake up the medium and offer something truly new. As a studio we’re renowned for having ambition and not being afraid to think outside the box, we wanted to use this reputation to make a bold statement, both to slot enthusiasts and the rest of the industry.
Almost immediately we realised that we didn’t want to develop another classic legacy-type jackpot that was already commonplace in the market, however, we were also quite aware that innovating in such a crowded space would be a challenge, but we’re confident we’ve pulled it off with something that really drives differentiation.
How does the Dream Drop Jackpot differ from other progressive jackpots on the market right now?
Simon: Our team has worked tirelessly to develop a Jackpot product that combines high-end progressive prizes with more defined win points, ultimately this will lead to a significantly more exciting experience for players.
More often than not, jackpot slots players are sat there for a very long time waiting for a slot to gain traction and drop, this then leads to another lengthy period where the jackpot seeds, in our opinion this sucks all the excitement and anticipation out of jackpot gameplay.
Our solution is to turn this concept on its head, the Dream Drop Jackpot offers high-frequency jackpot wins faster and more often than any other jackpot on the market. What’s more, we’ll level up the Dream Drop every two wins, increasing the overall maximum prize by €500,000.
This cycle will continue until the Mega Jackpot reaches an astonishing maximum of €10,000,000, also making the Dream Drop jackpot the highest paying jackpot slot on the market right now.
Jackpot slots have become fairly linear in their design and math model over the last decade, do you think players will see Dream Drop Jackpots as a new dawn for the space?
Simon: Relax Gaming is well known for driving differentiation and creating industry-defining titles such as Money Cart 2 Bonus Reels, Hellcatraz and of course Temple Tumble, so I see no reason why our jackpot offering won’t raise impress just as many players as our slot offering.
It’s hard to tell whether or not the Dream Drop Jackpot will be the catalyst for change across the entire jackpot landscape. As long as players are enjoying what we have to offer, then we’ll be satisfied. Judging from the excitement we’ve seen from the entire slot community so far, I think it’s fair to say we’ve come up with a winning formula that will inspire other studios to innovate.
What can we expect from the Dream Drop Jackpot later on in the coming months and years, will the jackpot be bundled with more games?
Simon: Absolutely! We have an incredibly exciting roadmap drawn up detailing future games that will feature the Dream Drop jackpot, we’ll be revealing details on this in the not-so-distant future.
One of our long-term goals is to extend the Dream Drop Jackpot opportunity to select partner studios. As an aggregator we’re lucky to have access to a huge portfolio of incredible games, and it’d be great to be able to see these games boosted by the addition of a life-changing progressive jackpot.
The dream is to be able to look back at this in a few years and proudly be able to say that we’ve been responsible for creating lucky players with fantastic prizes. There’s something truly special about jackpot slots that leaves enthusiasts happy and entertained, and we want to be the number one studio responsible for creating that level of excitement.
