Balloonies Farm Slot Bonus Features
There are two special symbols in the game that will bolster your account with their special powers. Watch out for the yellow Star which acts as a Wild and the red balloon which is a Bonus trigger.
Apart from the standard function of any Wild symbol in a slot game and that is replacing any symbol in the winning combination, the Star Wild also acts as a multiplier here. During the regular spins the Star can add 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier to the combination in which it participates. What is more, if there happen to be two stars the multipliers will be combined.
The main Bonus feature are the Free Spins that comes as a result of a combination of 3 red balloons on reels 2, 3 and 4. The most interesting thing about this feature is that you get to pick one of four versions of the Free Spins round. (You might have encountered that option in Game of Thrones, Immortal Romance and other slots). Here you can control the volatility of the slot. More free spins – lower volatility. Higher multiplier – higher volatility.
You can choose to play 15 times for free with Wild multipliers of 2x or you can choose 12 Free Spins with 2x and 3x multipliers. There is also the option to get less spins with higher multipliers. For example, 9 Free Spins with 3x and 5x wild multipliers or 5 Free Spins with 5x and 10x multiplier. On top of that upon triggering the Free Spins you get an instant prize that equals two times your stake.
Balloonies Farm is pretty similar to its predecessor at least in terms of audiovisual impression. Cartoony design and superb quality graphics make this slot pleasing to the eye but what will keep you in the game are definitely the Free Spins with multipliers and Floating Reels. Balloonies Farm offers plenty of winning opportunities throughout both the main game and the bonus game. Wrapped in a childlike theme, you will find some serious winning potential.
