The bright and colourful Dropz slot by Elk Studios may look sweeter than ice cream, but as a volatile game, you’ll need a lot of patience to hit that huge top win.
We love slots with that sweet touch, from the Casumo Bonanza slot to the Sugar Rush review. The 7 is the highest-paid symbol, followed by strawberry, apple, grapes, and lemons. You have equal colours of candy, from red, green, blue, and yellow, as low paying.
The Dropz slot online is a 6×6 row game, with 3 locked reels that start with 729 ways to win that can unlock up to 26,2144 ways to win thanks to avalanching reels and expanding reels. Add wilds, multipliers, and free spins, and this has a little bit of everything.
Except we couldn’t help but notice that while the top win of Dropz slot was a huge 25,000x your bet, and the volatility a decent mid to high, the RTP was set at a rather low 94%. So is it worth playing?
Symbols pay left to right on adjacent reels starting from reel 1. However, you’ll notice you only play with 3 rows of symbols to start with – 3 of the row are covered in hard chocolate.
When you win, the symbols explode and burst open the chocolate nearest to them, allowing more symbols to drop down from above and giving you more ways to win.
The chocolates can hide all sorts of special symbols. Respins to give you an extra chance to get more symbols with the open ways, wild symbols, sticky wilds for 3 wins, scatters, or level-up symbols.
The level-up symbol is one you’ll want to trigger, increasing the reel from 6×6 to 6×7 to 6×8. The more rows of symbols you can open up, the higher the ways to win.
During the base game of this Elk Studios created slot, a high-paying and low-paying colour-matching set is picked – the more you collect, the higher the multiplier over all the wins during that spin.
The problem is that getting to level three in the base game is difficult, especially as you need so many avalanching wins on this Dropz game to get there.
But not if you hit 3 scatters and get to the free spins, where you start with a 6 reel 8 rows game; the multipliers don’t reset, and you can hit the biggest wins.
Of course, the 94% RTP makes it difficult to get anywhere near the amount and means we have to lose a star to this Dropz slot review.
Still, it’s a slightly friendlier casino slot than the 300 Shields Mighty Ways slot, thanks to its mid to high-variance nature, allowing for more players to join in the fun at their favourite mobile casinos online.

Wild: The wild symbol replaces all other symbols in a win way, creating a win where possible.
Unlocking Win Ways and Avalanching Reels: The game starts at level 1 with 6 rows and 3 rows blocked by chocolates. You always start with 729 ways to win.
The Chocolate is a blocker and can contain special symbols. When you win, the reels' symbols explode; if they explode anywhere near the chocolate, they unlock that chocolate.
The avalanching wins continue for as long as new symbols drop from above. However, you need to unlock a level-up symbol from within the chocolates to go up a level.
You can get up to 262144 ways to win with each level-up chocolate unlocked. The level reset between paying spins.
Pair Matching Plate: On the top of the slot, there is a pair matching plate displaying two symbols of the same colour - one high paying, one low paying. When the two symbols pair up on the reel, you collect them and are removed from the grid.
You are awarded the win multiplier when the pair matching meter is full. Then a new pair of symbols is chosen to be collected, and a new multiplier can be won.
Any multipliers or bonus symbols stay in play throughout the levels.
ReDrops Feature: Randomly, the game will add 1-2 extra drops to the ongoing base game or bonus game.
Bonus and Free Drops: Collect 3 bonus symbols and you start the free spins.
You play on 8 rows with 3 rows in play, with 5 blocked chocolates. Any multiplier and pair matching meter are kept from the base game. In the chocolate, you can find locked wild symbols which stay throughout the bonus for up to 3 wins.
You can open up 262144 ways to win.
If only the RTP of this Dropz slot machine could have been a little bit higher, we wouldn't even have minded a lower top win.
A video slot like this should be supercharged with lots of action and frenetic energy that makes you want to keep playing.
Instead, after a while, you quickly get disheartened as you fight to get multipliers, fight to go up levels, and even fight to get to the free spins bonus.
It's a lot of fighting, so this volatile game requires a real love for high-variance slots. If that sounds like you, you should go play at the best Elk Studios casinos.
