Following its milestone deal with UK-based sports betting operator Bet365, leading B2B supplier Relax Gaming has launched Wild Chapo Dream Drop, the “upgraded” version of the original Mexican-themed slot that dropped in April 2021.
Players will find the main differences between the two iterations is a considerable drop in the RTP, going from 96.36 percent to 94 percent, and the addition of the Dream Drop, a five-tiered progressive jackpot that has the potential of reaching a maximum of €10,000,000. Other than that, Wild Chapo is still a loose cannon, and the volatility remains high while the video slot is played on a 5-reel, 3-row game board with the same 15 fixed paylines.
Regular wins are scored by landing three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel, with low paying symbols consisting of colorfully designed card suite diamond, club, heart and spade, which pay from 0.40 to 4.00 for hitting five-of-a-kind. In ascending value, high pays are a chihuahua, owl, donkey and our explosive toting Chapo, paying from 1.00 to 25.00 for landing three, four or five-of-a-kind the same way.
The game’s “W” wild symbol can substitute for all regular paying symbols to form winning combinations, or they are worth 40x the stake for landing five of them.
In addition to the main jackpot, players will also come across Chapo’s stash of fire-explosives, including Expanding TNT Wilds, Sticky Wild Re-Spins and Bonus Bomb symbols, each of which adds substantial win potential to the base game.
In the base game, landing a TNT crate cause it to expand upwards to create even more wilds. Players can also trigger the Re-Spin feature by landing two bonus symbols in the base game. Once activated, the triggering bonus symbols convert to Sticky Wilds, while landing more wild symbols awards an additional re-spin. When re-spins are exhausted, any win is paid, and the sticky wilds removed.
Landing three, four or five bonus symbols triggers Free Spins, awarding 7, 9 or 11, respectively. Landing at least three bonus symbols in free spins, awards an additional 3 spins. While in the feature and bonus symbols land, a bonus symbol icon is stored in the position it appeared.
Then, on the final spin, the stored bonus symbols are converted into wild symbols, with a multiplier attached that corresponds to the number stored at the particular position. So, if the scenario is multiple wilds with a multiplier on the same line, the values are multiplied against each other.
Dream Drop Jackpots:
In the base game, single Jackpot Spins trigger randomly, and when activated, five special reels appear, with either wooden blockers or DD (Dream Drop) symbols landing on the reels. If you land a DD symbol on all five reels, the game awards one spin on the jackpot wheel, where one of five jackpots can be won – rapid, midi, maxi, major, or mega, with starting values of €1, €5, €100, €25,000, or €500,000.
Attention to Detail:
Commenting on the new slot title, Simon Hammon, Chief Executive Officer for Relax Gaming, said in a company news release…
“Wild Chapo Dream Drop’s array of dynamite features are set to explode onto our partners’ platforms, which we’re certain their players will love, especially considering that this classic slot has been upgraded with our legendary new Dream Drop Jackpot, boosting bankrolls every single day!”
The CEO noted that the “striking cartoon-style visuals and complementary audio fit the wild gameplay to a tee” and are “another example to detail that runs through everything” their development team create.
Wild Chapo Dream Drop follows other recently released online slots, such as Volatile Vikings 2 Dream Drop, the exciting sequel to the original launched in September 2021 and the third slot to be included in Relax Gaming’s Dream Drop jackpot network, along with Snake Arena Dream Drop and Temple Tumble 2 Dream Drop.
