Welcome to my Lucky Drop app Review.
With new game developers making their mark on the app store each day, I’ll be looking at a new one that has embarked on creating a series of making money games.
A few weeks ago, I tried out one of the first ones they made called Lucky Bingo, which went viral.
But today, I’ll be focusing on their newest game Lucky Drop which claims you can win a couple of hundred dollars.
All this just by tapping the screen and dropping balls through various holes on a table.
But as good as it sounds, is it achievable to make that amount by playing a game like this?
Lucky Drop App Review Summary
- Owner: Borg Studio
- What Are They?: Dropping Game
- My Worth It Rating: 2/5
What Is Lucky Drop?
Lucky Drop is a game where you can win rewards for dropping balls. It’s as simple as it sounds. However, contrary to the game’s name, there is a lot to suggest this one won’t leave you feeling ‘lucky.’
I have come across many of these idle and plinko esqe games on my quest to cover as many of these games as possible. This includes:
Above are a few games which are themed and play like this one. While this one is new, they are all relatively the same and have copied elements.
Back to Lucky Drop, and as I was alluding to at the start, they are one of Borg Studios’ latest games.
So far, they have got everything right apart from the earning aspect, of course, since their games have hit into thousands of installs.
But with the popularity, it doesn’t translate into a decent paying out game. In fact, it rarely does.
Lucky Drop was launched back on the 30th of October and had more than 100,000 thousand installs.
How Does Lucky Drop Work?
The game is easy to understand, and you can start playing Lucky Drop even after a few seconds of installing it.
It can be downloaded on the google play store but not on the IOS, if you are wondering. There is also a rating of 12, which means you must be this age or higher to play it.
So to play the game, you must drop balls through the many various holes. Each of which holds a different value associated with them. This range is from 5 to 150.
Along with the numbers, there are additional two holes that are horizontal from each other called ‘fever.’
If your ball lands in one of these two holes, you will get an infinite ball, which is basically a power-up.
This means you get to tap the screen, releasing unlimited balls for a certain amount of time.
At first, you are given 100 balls. However, once they are all gone, you will then have to either wait for them to refill or pay either $2 from your balance or watch a video to get an extra 50. This can be done 5o times a day.
How To Make Money With Lucky Drop?
Playing Lucky Drop for the first time, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, as it feels like there is so much going on.
You have the power-ups such as the fever, you have the slots that trigger by themselves, and you also have the coins/dollars you pick up too.
Now talking of the money, I found this game very interesting as, within about 10 seconds of tapping the screen, I made back instantly $10.
This was added to my balance, and it felt like money was growing instantly, like some cash generator.
As I carried on, I got to around $25 before it all started to settle down, and the money would come in less frequently. This is the same pattern as plenty of other games.
However, from trying the game out for an extended period of time, I found that the way to earn is through collecting green balls from the slots. As the balls you are given are yellow, which means you only get coins back from these.
Now because you are relying on the slot to award you these green balls, it does mean that there is potential for Lucky Drop to stop awarding you them later on. Especially if you agonizingly close to the threshold.
How Do They Pay?
If you have come to this Lucky Drop app review from playing the game yourself, you may have noticed how to like myself earning $20-50 was so easy.
But with that accumulated money, you are probably wondering how much use is it to you. So what I found in the game is this page with all the rewards.
As you can see, pictured in the top left is the PayPal icon along with its minimum amount you must earn of $150. With each of the other 6 boxes, there are conditions to meet for the rest of the currencies.
So if you wanted to cash out those coins, which from playing is the easiest to rack up, you must get to 3 million of them.
The other rewards to point out are the dolls, 777, and dinosaurs, which, if you collect all, will give you $1000.
Finally, they also have an iPhone in the store, which is priced at $1599, but you must collect 50 pieces to redeem it.
Alot of apps say you can win this phone, including Puppy Town and Golden Hen. However, I am still waiting for some proof of a person winning one from one of these games.
What You Need To Know About
1. Constant Pop-Ups
By tapping the screen, you will, as a result, be shown many pop-ups. This can get quite annoying for the reason I’m about to explain.
So with the power-up called fever, you are given unlimited balls for 30 seconds. However, as you tap as fast as you can, you will land quite a few in the slots hole.
Every time the slot is spun, you will either win or lose. If you lose, which happens quite a lot, you will be shown pop-ups to get you to watch videos for an extra spin.
This can be really annoying if you are trying to play the game, but keep getting shown this every few seconds.
Along with these pop-ups, you, of course, have ads appear, which do more often than you would like.
2. You Won’t Get Close Enough
As with every review, I checked out the complaints and the feedback on the store for the lucky drop.
Now when you play a game like this one and get $30 in a few minutes, you will get skeptical quick.
This happened to me, and because of that, I had doubts early on that any of that money would find its way to my account.
So as I spoke about earlier, you must reach $150, but what is happening is users are getting to $96 or around that mark and can no longer earn any more.
It means for any users looking to get to that threshold fast will be disappointed when they realize getting is not achieveable.
Lucky Drop is similar to the plinko games released earlier this year, and while neither of them is great if you take the earning opportunities out of the equation, this game feels like a step up in terms of gameplay.
But with that said, I know you are here for an answer on whether you can make money, and sadly this game is not going to be your answer.
You see, with what I talked about in this Lucky Drop app review, you are most likely going to be in a position where you can accumulate money almost too easily early on. But as you play more, the less you will earn, and the chances are those slots will not go in your favor.
I wouldn’t recommend anyone to pick up this game to earn. The only exception is if you genuinely like the gameplay, as there are no rewards to be picked up.
Before I bring this Lucky Drop app review to an end, I also want to make clear that if you are stuck on an amount or the app is no longer giving you cents, there is a reason for that, and that is because the app is designed not to pay you after a certain point.
