Dropz - GAME REVIEW
Dropz is a sweet and sticky game from slot provider ELK Studios where you get to dress up your action in one of the more sugary themes out there. ELK has stuffed a few fruity items in there as well.
With its jazzy 70s symphonically swingy soundtrack, Dropz provides a fairly tasty snack for both eyes and ears. You might bring your toothbrush with you, because after playing this online slot, your teeth will never be as clean as they were.
The first step is to pick your bet, where options range from 0.20 up to USD/EUR 100 per spin. You can play this game on both desktop computers and handheld devices!
The default game state for Dropz is a 6×6 sized grid, but only three symbols on each reel are active. The rest sits beneath chocolate blocking tiles that can be removed with the avalanche function.
Dropz is a medium/highly volatile online slot that produces an RTP potential of 94%, which is absolutely below average! On the positive side, the max win is a massive 25,000x the bet.
You win when three or more identical symbols land on consecutive reels starting from the left. The 729 to 262,144 paylines are in place to determine a win, based on these matching symbols. The four lowest paying symbols are hard candies of different colours and shapes. The premium symbols are consecutive: lemons, grapes, apples, strawberries and last but not least ‘english licorice’ 7s.
A six-of-a-kind hard candie combination pays 0.25x the bet. For the fruits 0.5-5x the bet and for the 7s 50 times the bet.
Wild and locked wild symbols substitute for any other regular symbol, creating extra chances for you to win!
Dropz is a game where the rules might be unclear if you jump right in without looking over them first.
The Avalanche feature triggers when a win lands. It removes the winning symbols from the grid and adds new ones into their places! Also the chocolate blockers next to the winning combination will explode.
The avalanche ends if no more wins are in place. The chocolate tiles might reveal a special feature or symbol. If so, they will be activated.
Beside the normal wild, Dropz has a locked wild as well. This special symbol, displaying the number 3, signifies the fact that it stays on the grid for three wins. The locked wild will fall off when there’s no win left.
The Level Up symbol activates the following levels:
- Level 1 (starting level) – six rows with 3 active rows and 3 rows of chocolate blockers.
- Level 2 – seven rows with 3 active rows and 4 rows of chocolate blockers.
- Level 3 – eight rows with 3 active rows and 5 rows of chocolate blockers.
The game will unlock new levels when you fail to win any more. All multipliers, paired matchmaking meter progress and collected bonuses carry over into the new level.
Symbol pairs and multipliers
On the top you’ll find the Pair Matching meter. This meter indicates specific pairs – Fruit and candy with the same colour.
A win multiplier will be added when the meter is full with pairs presented on the grid.
When a pair is removed from the board, it causes other symbols and chocolate, below or above, to also avalanche in its place. Multipliers reset between paid spins.
ReDropz respin bonus
When landing 3 Bonus symbols through an avalanche sequence, the ReDropz feature will be triggered and awards 5 free ReDropz on an 8-row high grid with 3 active rows and 5 chocolate rows.
Mentioned that there’s no level progression used and wilds remain between spins. Furthermore there are no extra chocolate blockers added on spins to come and in some chocolate tiles you’ll find new features.
You have an opportunity to buy specific ways to play Dropz:
- Bonus Hunt: Buy a game round with more bonus symbols – 2x the bet.
- Feature Crescendo: Buy a game round with more features or ‘7’ symbols on the grid – 5x the bet.
- Feature Wilds: Buy a game round with 3 locked wilds on the grid – 25x the bet.
- Buy Bonus: Buy the bonus game – 100x the bet.
- Super Bonus: Buy the bonus game starting with x10 multiplier – 500x the bet.
Okay… The game is like an explosive snowball. Avalanches, chocolate blockers removal, symbol unlocks, multiplier pairs and level ups, all in one spin! It is too much.
When you compare it to the movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, you know exactly what i mean. Not just by theme and decor but also by the excess of everything.
The 94% RTP is also not helping at all. When everything that’s mentioned is not a concern, then there is plenty of glazed goodness here to digest.
