Balloonies Slot Review

IGT is always ready to introduce us to some really cool concepts. Who would have thought that a slot of balloon animals would become the focal point of an IGT slot game? Well, it has.

Balloonies is one of those slots that despite the strange narrative and story backdrop is still a delight. This game is quirky and interactive.

It is certainly one of those games that stir up some amazing childhood memories.

If you ever had a birthday party when you were smaller and had a clown who made all sorts of funny looking animals with balloons this game will seem familiar.

Expect to see some familiar animals, from giraffes, elephants, monkeys and some animals we can’t quite name. These all come in the form of cool looking animated symbols that play a major role inensuring you can score some impressive winnings.

Bonus Rounds and Payouts

  • Free Spins: A game of slots is almost always guaranteed to have free spins and Balloonies won’t let you down. The free spins bonus round is activated when you line up three ormore of the Pink Balloons bonus symbols. Doing so will activate the free spins feature. You will have to pop the balloon to reveal the number of free spins that will be applied to your game.The maximum number of free spins you can expect to get is 14. This feature won’t retrigger during the bonus round as the Pink Balloon only appears in the base game.
  • Payout Multipliers: The Scatter symbol is this game which is the Yellow Star Balloon activates the multiplier feature. The Star symbol only appear on reels one, two and threeonly. Should you land one during either the base game or the free spin round expect to be rewarded with multipliers of either 2x, 3x, and 5x. If you are one of those lucky souls that can landmore than one Star symbol during a spin, you will have your multipliers added up and your total wins at the end of that spin will be multiplied by the added up value.
  • Floating Reels: As if the above weren’t enough Balloonies features a floating reel. This feature takes play when a winning combination has been made. The symbols in the winningcombination will disappear and replaced with new symbols from this reel.
  • Maximum and Minimum Bets: The minimum bet per spin you can place is 0.20 and the maximum is 60 per spin.

Additional Game Features

  • Graphics and Visuals: Visually this game is just easy to look at. It isn’t that it is the best visually appealing slot game out there and certainly not in the IGT slot pool butit just works. Its silly looking. The blue sky makes for a sunny and light-hearted gaming experience. The animal sounds and special effects are just flat out hilarious. We laughed a coupletimes.
  • Mobile Compatibility: This game has been made available on mobile on a smartphone or tablet. It is compatible with both iOS and Android.
  • Symbols: The wild symbol in this game is the crazy looking Hedgehog Balloon. This guy replaces any other symbol on the reels except for the Star and Pink Balloon bonus symbols.

Summary

This game is seriously a breath of fresh air.
It is one of those games that could easily be overlooked. IGT has taken the initiative to ensure that it never is. They have incorporated some amazing free spins and multipliers to have youcoming back for me. A bonus feature would have been great but we won’t be too picky.
