Leading provider of online casino games, Pragmatic Play, has managed to squeeze out one last hit to close out the month of July having launched its feature-packed video slot, Chicken Drop.

A complete departure from its previous Viking-inspired release, this cluster-paying title with cartoon-style visuals and banjo-heavy country soundtrack “treats players to a fun-filled farm retreat” while providing them with bonus features, progressive elements and a max win of 5,000 times the stake.

Pastoral setting:

Set amid a lush green field, a big red barn and what could be the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia can be seen in the distance and a large tree and a funny-looking chicken with bulging eyes flank a 7-reel x 7-row panel, where 49 symbols drop in on each spin.

The game’s symbols include heart and spades card suits along with a mushroom, acorn, corn on the cob, a blueberry, and a strawberry, which during the base game is the highest paying symbol, with a winning cluster of at least 37 triggering a massive win of 1,000 times the stake!

Gameplay dynamics:

Earning wins is accomplished by forming clusters of 5 or more matching symbols, and by doing so, the tumble feature is triggered, where winning clusters are removed and replaced with new symbols. This can lead to additional wins earned during a single spin, only concluding when winning clusters cease to hit.

Triggering the “Free Spins” feature happens when at least four scatter symbols land on the game board, awarding up to 20 extra games and the ability to reactivate the feature indefinitely!

On every extra spin, when tumbles have completed, an egg, that can grow in size to 6×6, drops onto the grid, increasing the multiplier up to 11x and work with other symbols. Moreover, depending on the jurisdiction, it is also possible to choose to go directly to the extra spins mode via the Buy Feature.

Summer refresh:

Yossi Barzely, who is the Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play, used a company press release to comment on the new hit online slot, stating that…

“Moving away from the Viking-inspired action of our previous release, we wanted to treat our players to a fun-filled farm retreat.”

He goes on to say that Chicken Drops provides players with “a huge variety of progressive features and huge win potential, all contained within a wholesome environment that our players are bound to love.”

Pragmatic Play’s latest title follows recent hit releases Book of Vikings, Empty the Bank and the Asian-themed 5 Lions Megaways, each of which comprises the provider’s award-winning, 200-plus, HTML5 slot collection.

Africa expansion and next up:

In addition to the chickens coming home to roost via its new title, the leading content provider to the iGaming industry also recently increased its presence in Africa via a multi-product agreement with East African operator, Rahisibet, for its Burundi online casino and sports betting domain, rahisibet.com.

Players can expect Pragmatic to drop its next hit, Fruit Party 2, on August 5th!
