Cute, colorful icons and some great bonus features have contributed to the success of the Balloonies slot game from the maker IGT. Find out through the article below!
This is a low volatility slot machine, so you can expect to get a regular win, even though the average may be low. Having said that, Balloonies still had prizes up to 1,000 times the staked amount per line, or even more when the special multiplier feature came out.
All 20 payout lines are active, you just need to decide how much to bet for each line. Options range from 0.01, for a staked total of 0.20 to 100.00 giving high stakes a large potential bet of 2,000.00 per spin. This is a game for all budgets in which the simple plus and minus buttons adjust your bet accordingly. A useful payout panel, accessed from a small button at the bottom of the game screen, is full of details about how much each combination will pay you.
Placed on the see-through scroll, against a bright blue sky, all the icons look like sculptures on a hot air balloon, with the Q, K and A card symbols paying smaller prizes and symbols Giraffes, elephants and monkeys return higher prizes. The blue balloon is the highest payout symbol and has a value of 50x, 150x and 1,000x the stake respectively when it lands on 3, 4 or all 5 reels on a pay line. Whenever you hit a winning combination, the symbols that make up the victory disappear and new ones will emerge to fill the gaps. This can easily lead to new victories, which will continue until no more wins are landed.
The red balloon is a Wild symbol, which can act like other symbols to complete winning combinations, although it will not replace a bonus symbol or a star symbol. Select any of them to show some free spins, with up to 12 spins available. However, the most distinctive feature is Star Multiplier. Each star symbol seen on the reel after the reel awards a prize for the total stakes of 2x, 3x or 5x. If more than one star is seen, the values will be multiplied, which could lead to some large payouts.
Fun cartoon style may not appeal to everyone, but all players will enjoy the ability to win that comes from the many features Balloonies have to offer. The wide betting range means anyone will find the right bet, so this game is perfectly suited for all players!
