WMS’ Dr Reactive Mega Drop Slot Review

Cooking up explosive chemical cocktails is the name of the game in the Dr Reactive Mega Drop slot, an unusual 8 reel, cluster pays game from WMS and Red 7. Land a cluster of 5 or matching symbols to create a winning combination which in turn leads to a cascade. Land special combinations of symbols to clear reels, rows and low value symbols. Land at least 5 cascade wins in succession to trigger the free spins feature where wild multipliers can send payouts rocketing by up to 10x. Enter the lab from between 20p and £100 per spin.

Dr Reactive Mega Drop Theme/Symbols

We don’t get to see Dr Reactive in the slot that bears his (or her) name. The setting is the doc’s chemical laboratory. The reels are made up of an 8x8 grid where you’ll find 3 coloured beakers full of chemicals alongside lightning bolt and DNA symbols.

Cluster Pays

There aren’t any traditional paylines in Dr Reactive Mega Drop. To create a winning combination, you need to land a cluster of 5 or more matching symbols. These can be formed vertically and / or horizontally. The more symbols in the cluster, the bigger the potential rewards on offer. If you find 15 of the DNA symbol in a cluster, you’ll pocket an award equal to 50 times your total stake.

Cascading Reels

The Dr Reactive Mega Drop slot uses a cascading reels game mechanic. After a winning cascade is created, the successful symbols are removed. New symbols drop down from above and a new payout consideration is made. The cascades continue as long as a new winning cluster is created.

Multiplier Wilds

Helping your winning chances is the W symbols which is the wild. As usual, this replaces all the standard symbols. These wilds can also come with multipliers attached which can boost a payout by 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x in the base. In the happy circumstance of landing more than 1 multiplier wild in the same combination, the amounts are combined for an even bigger boost.

DNA Reaction feature

Joining the standard symbols and the wild is the atom. This causes a special reaction when it appears next to the DNA symbol. All the symbols on the reel and row where the DNA symbol is situated are cleared and a new cascade follows. A DNA reaction also awards a payout equal to your total stake.

Lightning Reaction feature

Expect more potentially explosive action when the atom lands next to the lightning bolt symbol. Here, all instances of the lowest value symbol on the reels are removed. Again, a new cascade follows.

Free Falls feature

The Free Falls feature offers 10 or 15 free spins. It’s triggered by landing 5 or more cascade wins in a single paid game. To get the 15 free spins, you’ll need to land 7 cascade wins in succession. You can keep tabs on how you’re doing via the meter to the side of the reels.

Wild multipliers of up to 10x

Just like in the base game, the W wild comes with multipliers attached. They’re larger during the free spins though and can boost payouts by 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x or 10x. In the base game, wilds disappear following a successful cascade. That’s not the case during the feature though. Instead, the lock in position. Their multiplier drops by 2x with each game until they reach their minimum 2x. Only then do they disappear from the grid.

Mega Drop Jackpots of up to £200,000

As part of the Mega Drop network, you’ll have a chance to land one of the Minor, Major or Epic Jackpots. The latter offers prizes of up to £200,000 if you’re lucky.

Dr Reactive Mega Drop thoughts

This science-themed slot can deliver some decent action. It’s about as far removed from an old school fruit machine as you can get so if you enjoy classic slots, it’s probably one to swerve. The gameplay can be a little repetitive but a good run of cascades can make a trip to Dr Reactive’s lab a potentially explosive one – this is because you can win 65,001 x stake if the multipliers work their magic! However, this is a cap of £250,000 per spin.

If you like grid slots though, you cannot go wrong with Quickspin’s Golden Glyph slot which offers 13,185 x stake wins and takes to you the popular ancient Egypt.
