Balloonies Farm Review
This is a 5-reel 20-payline video slot that further develops a playful and joyful balloons theme, which was originally introduced in the Balloonies slot by IGT. It looks like a toy but it is all about a serious business of high stakes and heavy wins. The game accepts 2000-coin bets and pays wins amounting up to x1000 a line bet. The slot has a Floating Reels feature that is made to explore all winning opportunities and is reinforced with a x2–x5 Wild multiplier. A Scatter awards x2 a total bet and triggers up to 15 free spins with random x2–x10 multipliers.
The gameplay is something to wake you up and make you smile. Balloonies are toy-like and behave like cartoon characters. Besides, a Floating Reels feature makes the gameplay a distinctive one: the reels are still recognizable but they do not rotate as they are used to do in a typical slot, they float instead. This is a natural solution: balloons are made for floating in the air and symbols featuring Balloonies do exactly this thing: they float upward. Along with your bets and balance, hopefully!
The game is made to play on a PC or mobile device on 20 paylines. The only thing Balloonies ask you to adjust is your line bet which is clearly made to attract high rollers. The slot accepts line bets running from 1 to 100 coins per line or up to 2000 coins per spin.
When you hit Spin, Balloonies float up and create combinations. If there is a winning combination, it adds a respective win to the win meter and disappears. Empty spaces are filled with new random Balloonies which in their turn may also create winning combinations and add some cash to the win meter. The feature goes again and again until there is no winning combination; indeed the feature is designed to get hold on all possible winning chances in each spin. Finally, when it is over and no new winning combination appears, a total win in a round, which is displayed on the win meter, is added to your balance.
You may also trigger an autoplay mode and concentrate on adoring Balloonies movements and tricks. Set your line bet according to your gambling habits and select 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 auto spins. You may stop an autoplay mode after any spin and restore a base mode.
There are 9 symbols, including 7 non-feature pics, a multiplying Wild and a Bonus symbol, all featuring diverse Balloonies. The seven non-feature symbols pay from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel when you manage to land 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols on any payline. Again, all paylines are constantly on so you are not going to miss any winning combination. Non-feature symbols pay wins ranging from x5 up to x1000 your line bet (not a total bet in a round).
To make things better and merrier, there is a Wild symbol featuring a Star and it is indeed a star of the game. The thing is that a Wild symbol in the slot is equipped with a random multiplier. In a base game, each time you land a winning combination comprising a Star, it awards you a random multiplier which may be x2, x3 or even x5 a line payout. A Star appears on reel 2, 3 and 4 only. Naturally, a Star Wild substitutes for all non-feature symbols.
If there are two or more Star Wild symbols in a spin, their multiplying values are added. The values of each Star Wild multiplier appearing in a single spin, including all replacements of non-feature symbols due to a Floating Reels feature, are added and applied to a total win you have earned in this spin. So a single spin may raise a random multiplier to x10 (x2 + x3 + x5) or even more as soon as there is no limit imposed on the feature. So your total win may jump tenfold in each round.
Free Spins Bonus: A greater freedom of choice
Balloonies Farm would be a dull place without a feature that would be truly bright and colorful, have huge winning capacity and hide an intrigue or surprise in it. And there is such a feature in the slot, this is a Free Spin Bonus arranged in an exciting way. To trigger it you have to land 3 Bonus balloons (a Scatter symbol) in any position on reels 2, 3 or 4. The feature activates and pays you x2 a total bet in a triggering round. It then offers you a selection of four options. Each option features a number of free spins and random multipliers:
- 5 free spins with x5 and x10 Wild multipliers
- 9 free spins with x3 and x5 Wild multipliers
- 12 free spins with x2 and x3 Wild multipliers and
- 15 free spins with a x2 Wild multiplier.
A Wild symbol plays an important role in a free spin mode as well. It appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, substitutes for all non-feature symbols and multiplies respective line wins. In a free spin mode a Wild is equipped with higher multipliers, up to x10, which you are free to choose. When you make your choice, consider the chances and balance the risks. More free spins means lower risks and lower multipliers while fewer free spins increases risks along with a value of multipliers. Follow your intuition and make your decision. During free spins, the multiplying Wild symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, just like in a base game, but they do substitutions and multiplications more frequently and way more generously.
A Bonus symbol does not appear on the reels in a free spin mode. This means that a Bonus Free Spins feature cannot be re-triggered during free spins. Free spins are played at a bet you have placed for a base game before the feature starts.
This 5-reel 20-payline slot developed by IGT is equipped with a Floating Reels feature, a Wild symbol with aggregating x2-x5 multipliers, a Scatter awarding x2 total bet and up to 15 free spins with x2–x10 Wild multipliers. Bets range from 20 to 2000 coins per spin and wins range from x5 to x1000 a line bet. The slot is compatible with mobile devices.
