You don’t need to know the daytime TV show this 100K Drop mobile slot is based on to enjoy it. But it might help.
We’ve never watched the £1 Million Drop, or the now recently revamped £100K Drop Channel 4 UK TV show.
This is a really specific reference, and other than the bonus game, isn’t really reflected in the theme unlike, say, the Wheel of Fortune on Tour game by IGT, for example.
You get a female wild, who (we guess) is meant to sorta look like Davina McCall the presenter (but doesn’t), a safe full of money, a suitcase full of money, wads of money and… Ace to 10 symbols.
This 100K Drop slot could be about anything, really. But we suppose, fans of the show might recognise it’s simplistic neon style?
Red Tiger slots have a habit of breaking convention and not giving you free spin bonuses all that often.
And yet they still work; games like Lucky Wizard, Masquerade, Reel Heist slot… they all have their own individual charm that makes you forget that you don’t have free spins.
Mostly that thanks to some inventive bonus games that keep you hooked. And this 100K Drop bonus game is inventive, we’ll give you that.
What it doesn’t have is much in the base game. You get decent wins, but you have to wait to get at least 3 wild symbols on screen for that to happen.
So if the base game is a low on big wins, surely that inventive bonus game will make up for it… right? Well, no.
The concept is good. You start with 2,000 times your bet in cash, and you have to split that money over suitcases.
Some of those suitcases will drop, and you’ll lose that money for that round. The amount on the suitcases is then moved to round 2 and you have to do this all over again for 4 rounds.
The good news is that this bonus round comes often. The bad news is that in 2 hours of playing this 100k Drop online slot, we’ve never managed to get any money out of this bonus round.
So yeah, technically you can win as much 2,000 times your bet, if you gamble all of your money on one suitcase on each round.
That’s about as likely to happen as Davina calling us and giving us 100 thousand in cash, personally.
For that matter, even if you bet the maximum of 40 a spin, you can only ever win 80,000, so perhaps Red Tiger Gaming didn’t think that name through very well.
Honestly, This slot is for fans of the TV series only. And even then, you are probably better off trying to apply for the real TV show.

Wilds: The female presenter is the wild symbol and can replace all other symbols to create a win, except the scatter. She is also the highest paying symbol of the lot.
The 100K Drop slot feature explained: You start the game with 2,000 times your bet.
There are four rounds in total you need to get through, whilst losing as little cash as possible.
You can choose to put as much or as little cash between the trapdoors, and once you've distributed all the cash a simple roulette game starts.
The trapdoors will open, and the one suitcase left behind is the money you have to distribute in the next round.
It's very like 'roulette' to leave you with an empty suitcase and you end with nothing, especially in round 4.
What is the best strategy to get to round 4? Distribute evenly between the max amount of trapdoors.
That said, we've had some luck with just splitting the amount 50/50 on two of the four trapdoors, leaving us with a larger chunk of cash by round 4.
That said, we've never once won any money in round 4, so we're not sure we are doing this right, or this online game is just rigged against it.
We weren't fans of the show to begin with, so the theme of this 100K slot on mobile didn't grab us.
That said, our major problem with it is that this is an extremely volatile slot with very little payoff for your efforts.
The base game rolls around quickly enough, thanks to a whole load of whiles and the frequently hitting bonus game.
But that bonus game is so frustrating that when it does hit you'll want to throw your Android phone or iPad to the wall as you come out, yet again, empty-handed.
Maybe it's supposed to reflect the TV show, maybe there's a smarter way to play this gambling game. Maybe there are many UK slot fans who will prove us wrong.
But personally, we're not sticking around to find out. We'll be playing Snow Wild and the Seven features slot instead, to remind us why we love Red Tiger games.
