If you were a young child and the Balloonies came on the screen, you’d absolutely adore them. Parents out there might be a bit fearful of how much they are going to have to spend on the related merchandise and how many times they will have to sit through the show. Well this isn’t a TV show but an IGT slot but its cartoonish look makes for a fun game and more importantly it can provide its players with some big wins too.
If you play a few IGT slots, then chances are you will be familiar with the Balloonies who star in the game of that name. That’s a great game to play and the same can be said of ‘Balloonies Farm.’ This is a five-reel game that has a total of 20 pay-lines, that’s a fixed amount so while you still must work out your stake for each spin, it’s always going to be 20 pay-lines active on each spin of the reels. Check out the paytable and have some free spins before playing this slot because as you will read, there’s a heck of a lot going on here.
After their initial adventures, the Balloonies find themselves on a farm in this sequel. This slot has a cartoonish look with its symbols hanging in mid-air. The backdrop shows a lovely sunny day with the farm house on the right-hand side of the screen and on the left, one of those wind machines.
Setting your stake is dead easy to do with the control button situated underneath the reels. The minimum cost of playing ‘Balloonies Farm’ is 0.20 and the maximum a total of 2000 . Simply go for a stake that you feel comfortable playing with and can afford to lose. When the reels spin, it’s a little bit different from most games. Rather than them spinning it away and the symbols going from top to bottom, this time they go from bottom to top.
The symbols in this game are a pig, a sheep, and cows all looking as if they have escaped from a kiddie’s cartoon. There’s also the Queen to Ace playing card symbols. If you can get five of the Balloonies symbol, then that wins you 1000x your stake.
The wild symbol is the star and can substitute for other symbols to get you wins, especially with the Star Multiplier feature. Any star wild symbol which forms part of a winning combination will multiply the value of that win. That can be either 2x, 3x or 5x so well worth getting. It’s even better if a couple of wild symbols get you a win as their two multipliers are combined. So, if it was a 2x and a 3x, it’d become a 6x. Of course, that means the multiplier could be as high as 25x! They don’t appear on every reel though, just the second, third and fourth.
This slot includes one of my favourite features, it has a few names depending on which slot designer you are playing with. In ‘Balloonies Farm’ it’s called the Floating Reels. When you are lucky enough to get a winning combination, the symbols responsible for that win suddenly disappear. They are replaced by a new set of symbols and the reels re-evaluated. If another win is produced, then the process is repeated over and over again. When no new wins are created it’s time for the next spin of the reels.
To get some free spins you need to get the bonus symbol anywhere on the second, third and fourth reels at the end of a spin. How many free spins do you receive? Well your next task is to choose from one of the four balloons and this reveals just how free spins you will be playing with. The red balloon offers you five free spins with a wild multiplier of between 5x and 10x. Go for the blue balloon and the free spins are up to nine but the multiplier is only 3x to 5x. With the green balloon, you get 12 free spins but that multiplier drops to 2x or 3x. Your final choice is to go for the blue balloon where you find yourself playing with 15 free spins and that wild multiplier is 2x. There are more star wilds on the reels during the bonus round and it’s best to go for the options that have the highest multipliers.
If you enjoy the gameplay of this slot, have a go at this couple of other games. ‘Star Lanterns’ is another IGT slot and also features a 5×3 grid with 20 pay-lines. Just like ‘Balloonies Farm’, it’s a medium to high variance slot with free spins to be triggered. From Red Tiger, there’s ‘Persian Fortune’ in which you can win free spins with some tasty multipliers boosting your wins.
This is a fun slot to play and can also be very lucrative. It contains some fun features and the floating reels are always likely to produce good results. The look is a humorous one and the farm noise soundtrack not too irritating, though it can be muted. Definitely recommended.
