Gameplay: Float and win a way higher!
The gameplay is something to admire: there are no conventional rotating reels, just joyful Balloonies playing their little show just for you. They are not only playing: they award very nice prizes if you play for real money. There are 20 paylines, all constantly on, with only a line bet parameter adjustable within a range from 1 to 100 coins per line. This means that the minimum bet is set at 20 coins while the maximum bet goes up to 2000 per spin. Such a nice and round bet is bound to earn huge wins, and this is exactly what high rollers are looking for in online casinos.
There are 7 non-feature symbols which pay from left to right when you manage to land 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols on a payline. All non-feature symbols are balloons representing 3 playing card symbols (Q, K and A), 3 inflatable animals – a Giraffe, an Elephant and a Monkey – and a Blue Balloonie with flapping ears. The wins start from x5 your line bet and go as far as x1000. A line win is multiplied by your line bet; do the math and see that the slot is worth every penny you bet. Line wins are earned by non-feature symbols greatly assisted by 3 feature symbols: a Wild, a Star Multiplier and a Bonus Scatter symbol. Hitting winning combinations on several lines, you earn on all of them: line wins are added and paid, all of them.
Floating Reels Feature: Designed to win more
The base game mode is equipped with a Floating Reels feature, also found in IGT’s Balloonies Farm slot. It is a nice and jolly feature designed to make each spin do a show and also present all its winning potential. When you set your line bet and hit Spin for the first time, Balloonies float upwards, they are all gone and a completely new set of Balloonies appears.
A winning combination in this set triggers a Floating Reels feature: all winning Balloonies burst and a line win is added to the win meter. Vacant positions are occupied by new random Balloonies; if there are new winning combinations, wins are added to the win meter and the feature goes on again and again until there are no more winning combination. All these respins are free for you: one single bet may trigger quite a long row of respins, all free and potentially winning. Besides, these respins are played with a Wild and a random Star Multiplier.
Special symbols: Wilds and Stars
A Star Multiplier symbol looks like a big yellow star which appears in any position on reels 2, 3 and 4. A Star pays an instant cash prize of x2 your line bet in a spin it appears. Besides, it bears a promising mark, an “X” and a digit which is in fact a value of a random multiplier attached to the Star. The Star keeps all its promises and multiplies your total win in a round by x2, x3 or even x5.
A Star may give you even higher multiplier in a base game: if you are lucky enough to score several Stars within a single spin, the values of multipliers attached to each Star are added and this aggregate multiplier is applied to your total win in a round. This means that 3 Stars with x2, x3 and x5 multipliers give a total multiplier of x10 (or even greater if you are lucky to score more Stars or Stars with higher multipliers).
When a Star appears on the reels, it goes to the Star meter and empties its place for a random symbol which may help you build up a new winning combination. In a free spin mode Stars get plentiful and appear on the reels more often.
A Wild symbol appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4 in base game and free spins, and it does duty for all non-feature symbols.
Bonus Free Spins feature
A Bonus Scatter symbol does a very important job: it earns free spins and does it in an exciting way. A Bonus Balloonie appears on reel 1, 2 and 3 during a base game only. If you manage to land 3 Bonus Scatter symbols in any position on any of the first three reels (counting from the leftmost reel), you are awarded a Scatter win which is x40 your line bet. Then a Bonus Free Spins feature activates and offers you a selection of 3 balloons. Each balloon contains 4 to 14 free spins. You make a choice, the number of free spins is revealed and free spins are played.
Free spins run with an improved, more abundant and more frequent Star multiplier, so chances for winning it big increase considerably. At the same time a bet in a free spin mode is the same as you have set for your base game.
A Bonus Free Spins feature cannot be retriggered in a free spin mode because a Bonus Scatter does not appear on the reels at all. To get another set of free spins you have to land three Bonus Scatters on reel 1, 2 or 3 during a base game.
This 5-reel 20-payline slot is designed primarily for high rollers. It accepts bets from 20 to 2000 coins per spin and pays out up to x1000 a line bet, scatter wins of x40 a line bet and Star wins of x2 a line bet. The gameplay offers a Floating Reels feature, random multipliers of x2 to x5, a Wild and a Scatter that awards up to 14 free spins played with random aggregating multipliers.
