IGT Launched Balloonies Pokie Machine

ballonies slot logoWe are all here to talk about yet again a “new” International Game Technology pokie machine. I figured that this company needs no introduction, since, well, they have over 40 years of experience in the business. If you are not new to the gambling scene, you have probably heard about them plenty of times, and you might have even played several of their games already.

This pokie machine since to be inspired in party animals, but probably not the kind of party animal you are picturing, but the ones that you would find in your little kid’s birthday parties.

As if they were made by clowns, all of the symbols appear to be balloon figures. From the odd little monsters original from the game to animals like monkeys, giraffes and elephants, along of course with the traditional J, Q, K, and A poker cards, also made balloon figures.

Balloonies started as a small project while dreaming big. International Game Technology had made this game for mobile devices only, such as smartphones and tablets, but due to its incredible success in that area, the developers decided to expand its availability to personal computers through their web browser servers.

What We Love

There are a lot of interesting things in this game, but the most peculiar one is the fact that, since all of the symbols are balloons, they do not spin downwards as we are already used to find in most of the pokie machines in the market. They actually float upwards.

Whenever you make a combination, the balloons pop, allowing the empty spaces to be filled with the symbols below them. This will keep happening until no more combinations are available. This feature allows you to make more combinations than you would with traditional pokie machines without having to pay for further spins.

There are also multiplier scatters. These are the yellow stars that will only appear on the reels 1, 2 and 3. Whenever you manage to get them, they will double up your pay-line’s winnings and, in addition, they will leave a 5x dynamic multiplier that will keep increasing if you pop more stars.

The wilds will, as always work as your “jokers” as they replace any regular symbol in the grid to help you make more combinations. These will be represented with one of the odd little monsters original from the game.

Last, but definitely not least, the bonus balloons will appear also in the first, second and third reels only. If you hit three of them, these will trigger a special pick feature with three options for you to choose one from and reveal a certain amount of free spin rounds for you. During these free spins the multiplier stars will appear more often than regularly.

What We Did Not Like

There might not be anything that I, for a fact, did not like about this game. However, I think a bigger maximum payout would have made a huge difference for this game. It does have quite a decent RTP though (96.23%) which guarantee you will be getting frequent winnings.

Worth Playing It?

Of course! International Game Technology has made all of these features to boost the game’s playability. The special features also make this game quite different than what we are already too used to find in the market nowadays.

It kind of gives me a fresh breath of air to see that there are still some companies out there trying to revolution the industry by making small changes to their games. If you are not eager to hit the biggest of jackpots I certainly recommend you give this pokie machine a try since you might find it quite entertaining.
