Pragmatic Play, a leading content provider to the gaming industry, heads in a new direction with the launch of its farm-inspired video slot, Chicken Drop.

The chickens have come home to roost in the provider’s new title, packed to the brim with progressive elements, bonus features and cartoon-style visuals overlayed by a banjo-ridden country soundtrack.

In the base game the Strawberry is the highest paying symbol, where landing a winning cluster of 37 or more will trigger a win up to 1000x the bet. Central to the action is the tumble feature that replaces winning clusters with new symbols, which can lead to repeat wins from single spins.

The Free Spins feature is triggered when four or more scatter symbols land, awarding players with up to 20 Free Games and the ability to retrigger the feature indefinitely.

When tumbles are completed, an egg, that can get to the size of 6×6, will drop onto the reels, increase multiplier up to 11x and interact with other symbols. In certain jurisdictions, it is also possible to head straight to the Free Spins mode with the Buy Feature option.

Chicken Drop™ is the latest title to developed by Pragmatic Play’s, following in the steps of recent hits Book of Vikings™, Empty the Bank™ and 5 Lions Megaways™, which reside amongst 200+ HTML5 titles in the provider’s award-winning slot collection

Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “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 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 currently produces up to five new slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino and Bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through one single API.
