Chicken Drop Review
A golden egg symbolises wealth and guaranteed success - thankfully this slot is all about golden eggs. Developed by Pragmatic Play, Chicken Drop is a Cluster Pays slot that plays on a grid of 7 x 7 and focuses on a chicken at a farm who happens to lay huge golden eggs.
This animal slot focuses on the golden egg that can drop huge symbols of up to 6 x 6 with multipliers of up to x11 as well. There's also a free spins round that even carry these bonuses across for the rest of the round! With all of these egg-citing features, there's no reason not to check out Chicken Drop.
Set against an idyllic farm, Chicken Drop is based on a rural farm that looks like the 'American Dream' with the typical red barn and the vibrant green fields. Thankfully, the background is animated so you can see windmills moving and butterflies fluttering just to give this slot extra life. The whole aesthetic makes the slot feel like a fun TV show that is cheesy but entertaining.
In the middle of the screen, you'll notice the reels on a 7 x 7 grid filled with various items that you'd expect to find on a farm such as mushrooms, corn and strawberries. Next to the reels, you'll find the star of Chicken Drop which is an animated chicken that looks like one of the creatures from Chicken Run. Thankfully, the chicken is charming and fun enough to provide some laughs that you can get past the creepy eyes.
As for the music, you can expect to hear upbeat barn music with accordion, banjos and other cliche American instruments that are associated with rural America. It fits in really well, especially with the ambient noises for the chicken and general farm noises. Overall, the design is exactly what you'd expect and Pragmatic Play hasn't failed to deliver.
The gameplay is focused around the Cluster Pays mechanic which ultimately means that the gameplay is straightforward as all you have to do is match up at least 5 symbols. There are no paylines and it's up to matching symbols instead.
All the relevant menus can be found at the bottom with the spin button being highlighted by Pragmatic Play's trademark crown. The bet level and autospin are just alongside the spin button - any other menus are just to the left-hand side.
Despite looking friendly, Chicken Drop is a high volatility slot that has some fast-paced gameplay. Make sure that you have the bankroll to sustain yourself and that you like playing slots that deliver big wins but less frequently. Thankfully, the RTP is at a decent 96.50% which is just over the standard.
As for the maximum payout, through the multiplier and the size upgrades, you could win up to 5,000x your stake. Sadly, this isn't a lot and the maximum bet is 100.00, so there could be big wins with the maximum bet but that's about it.
Chicken Drop is so much fun to play that you can't help but enjoy the way that all the symbols mix together and form a cluster. The design is exactly what you'd expect and the gameplay is simple but brilliant. Now, the only thing that lets down Chicken Drop is the low maximum payout but that's about it.
If you love Cluster Pays and animal slots, then there's no reason not to check out Chicken Drop. Of course, just make sure that you have the bankroll to sustain yourself and you should be set for a great time.
