IGT providers have released many amazing slot games over the years, but Balloonies is probably their most fun slot that comes with a few promising features. The slot is designed in a foolish and childish way with the transparent reels set high up in the blue sky. The slot may have the childish looks, but not in a bad way as even those serious players will definitely find this slot enjoyable in so many ways. Despite the fun and colorful looks that may deceive anyone, this slot definitely has to offer good features that can boost up your budget such as the free spins bonus, scatter multiplier, or Floating Reels feature. The slot is a 5 reeler with 20 fixed pay lines where all the symbols on the reels are made of balloons that include 4 balloon animals and 3 balloon card symbols. The special symbols are a wild with a standard substitution function, bonus icon, and a star multiplier.
Instead of the usual way of symbols appearing on the reels from above and falling down on their positions, Balloonies has the symbols float up on the reels. And floating has a big role in this slot since the Floating Reels feature provides you with additional chances for hitting the wins. It functions similar to the Avalanche feature or Tumbling Reels where the symbols from a winning combination will disappear and be replaced by new symbols. The Gonzo’s Quest or IGT’s Pixies of the Forest slot contain this kind of features. But the Floating Reels in Balloonies will cause the winning balloons to explode and float up in the sky while other balloons will float up taking their positions. This happens as long as there are wins giving you multiple chances for more wins.
Free Spins Bonus and Star Multiplier Feature
What is better than multiplier symbols appearing in both base and free spins game boosting up your wins? We all love multiplied wins and Balloonies is a slot that provides this kind of treat. A yellow star scatter icon appears on reels 1, 2, and 3 only and pays 2 times your line bet. But also, these stars are a part of Star Multiplier Feature, meaning that each star awards a x2, x3, or x5 multiplier. If there is more than one start during one spin all those multipliers will be added together. Combine this star feature with Floating Reels and you’ll get an amazing winning potential on just one single spin.
The Free Spins Bonus round is where naturally, you can benefit the most. All you need is 3 balloon bonus icons anywhere on reels 1, 2, and 3 and you’ll start the feature. The number of the free spins depends strictly on you since before you enter the free spins round you’ll have to pop one of the 3 balloons to reveal the number of free spins (between 4 and 14 free games). There are no bonus icons appearing on the reels during the feature so you cannot re-trigger the bonus, but that’s fine since star multipliers appear more frequently than in the base game, which will make your wins even bigger.
Enjoy the Balloon Party on Your Mobile Device
You can check out and enjoy this fun slot on any device (desktop, tablet, laptop, or any smartphone). The game works perfectly on both Android and iPhone devices and no apps download is needed so you can access the game right away. All in all, Balloonies comes with fun and childish looks that will entertain just about anyone. Besides the great looks, this slot comes with some great features out of which the Floating Reels is our favorite as you have the chance for multiple wins on a single spin.
