Balloonies Slot Review

Balloonies is certain to bring out the big kid in you no matter what age you are as it is based on balloon animals – and don’t worry, you’ll not face the humiliation of failing to blow one up or bursting one as you attempt to interlink it with another. Not only will you look on in awe at the striking realism of the balloonies that feature on the reels, you will be astounded by the massive prizes up for grabs whenever the balloons pop in a simple yet effective online slot!

Developed by IGT, Balloonies uses their most common structure as it is a 5 reeled online slot containing a total of 20 paylines which cannot be adjusted. As usual, there are a wide variety of coin options for you to choose from enabling players of all bankroll levels to spin the reels with bets from 20 coins up to a colossal 20,000 coins per spin allowed to be staked each spin, plus there is a varying return to player percentage of 92.40% up to 96.23% due to the plethora of bonus features that have been incorporated into this fun-filled spectacle.

Meet the Balloonies

A whole host of balloonies feature on the reels with the very prickly Henry the Hedgehog overseeing the other balloons (they know he’ll make them pop if they step out of line) as the Wild symbol with the power to substitute for all other symbols aside from the Bonus and Star symbols.

There is also a rather dopey looking blue dog (whose eyes feature in the logo above the reels) who is the most valuable symbol of all with five seeing you rewarded with 1,000 coins. This docile character is accompanied by Mia the Monkey whose long arms and tail stick out, Ernie the Elephant whose trunk hangs low, Gerry the Giraffe who will cause you neck ache to look up at, plus there are standard Ace, King, and Queen symbols which have been created using balloons and these are worth the least of all.

Floating Reels See Symbols Pop

One of the main reasons you will love the Balloonies slot machine is the Floating Reels feature which is like the Cascading Reels feature except here the symbols rise instead of fall. With the reels floating high up in the clouds, every winning combination that you land sees the symbols that contributed to that win pop and drop down, with new balloons rising into those positions, enabling you to have another opportunity to create winning combinations, with this continuing until there are no new wins.

Star Multiplier Feature

The bright yellow Star symbols only appear on the first, second and third reels with each one bringing a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier bonus, with the multipliers being added together should you be lucky enough to land more than one at once. In addition to this each of the Star symbols that land on the reels pays 2x the line bet, and considering how lucrative this can be, it’s especially generous that this feature is also active in the free spins feature.

It’s Popping Off with Free Spins

Things really pop off whenever you land the Bonus symbol on the first, second and third reel at the same time with you then having to click on a red, blue or green balloon to reveal the number of free spins that you have won – either 6, 8 or a maximum of 12.

While you may feel disappointment when you land the minimum number of six free spins, the Star Multiplier feature usually makes up for this, however one aspect of the feature that I cannot hide my disappointment of is the fact that you cannot retrigger additional free spins due to the Bonus symbols only appearing during the base game.
