FanDuel Casino News - Pragmatic Play Launches New Cluster-Paying Video Slot: Chicken Drop


Pragmatic Play has carved a reputation for itself as a leading software developer in the online gaming scene, and its late July release has further cemented that status. The developer closed out the month of July with the launch of its feature-loaded Chicken Drop slot. Pragmatic Play's most recent release before Chicken Drop was themed around the famous battling Vikings of ancient Scandinavia.

With Chicken Drop though, the developers went down a different lane. The cluster-paying online slot combines cartoonish graphics with a banjo-dominated country soundtrack to give players a "fun-filled farm retreat". It also features some impressive bonus rounds, progressive elements, and a generous 5,000x max win. 

Chicken Drop Slot Setting

Pragmatic Play's idea with this slot was to serve players a laid-back farmyard feel, and that much is obvious from the very first glance at the backdrop. A lush. green and grassy expanse dominates the background, along with a big red barn. In the distance, players can enjoy the sight of a classy mountain range. The game's action occurs across a 7×7 grid matrix surrounded by a big tree and a weird-eyed chicken character. 

49 symbols fall onto the reels at the start of every spin. They consist of card suit symbols (spades and hearts) with the more rewarding mushrooms, acorn, corn on a cob, blueberry, and a strawberry. The strawberry is the highest paying symbol in the Chicken Drop base game, dishing out a huge win of 1,000x your stake when landed in a cluster of 37 or more.

Gameplay Features

The Tumble feature is at the core of just about every rewarding action in Pragmatic Play's July-ending release. The feature brings up new symbols to replace the ones which form a winning cluster, increasing your chances of recording a second, and maybe even third, win on the same spin. The wins keep coming around after each tumble, only ending after a winning cluster is absent from a new tumble. Regular wins form every time you hit a cluster of at least five matching symbols. 

The Free Spins round activates when four or more scatter symbols land on the reels. It rewards players with 20 free games. Landing four or more scatter during the Free spin will re-trigger the round; this could go on and on until infinity. After every tumble, an egg drops onto the reels and increases the multiplier to a value of 11x. This egg, which can expand up to a 6x6 size, blends with every regular symbol it comes in contact with.   

Summer Moves

Pragmatic Play's Chief Business Development Officer, Yossi Barzely, commented on the company's new summer release, saying; 

"Moving away from the Viking-inspired action of our previous release, we wanted to treat our players to a fun-filled farm retreat. Chicken Drop provides players with various huge progressive features and huge win potential, all contained within a wholesome environment that our players would love.”  

Before the launch of Chicken Drop, the developer's summer lineup included Book of Vikings, Empty the Bank, and 5 Lions Megaways. These titles join Pragmatic Play's award-winning slot selection when the provider expands its African fan base with a multi-product partnership with Rahisibet. The East African operator will partner with Pragmatic Play for its online casino and sports betting offerings.

Gaming fans can enjoy Chicken Drop's wholesome farm experience as they look forward to more hit titles from Pragmatic Play.
