Balloonies graphics and design
While most online slot games give a wink to the fact that we’re playing adult games with childhood themes, Balloonies goes all in and appears as if it was actually made for children. A cartoon-drawn sky serves as a backdrop for a transparent reel set that contains 3D symbols made from balloons, including a giraffe, elephant, monkey, and dog as premium symbols and A, K, and Q as lower-paying symbols.
Cheery music plays while chimes and bells signify spins and wins. The various balloon-related sound effects might as well have come right out of a Saturday morning cartoon. The experience can be a little more disconcerting than fun at first because you can’t help but wonder what motivated them to design the game this way.

How Balloonies’ bonus features work
Balloonies slot keeps things popping with floating reels, star multipliers, and free spins.
Floating reels are tumbling reels in reverse. Winning pay-lines pop and are replaced by new symbols that float up to take their place. New winning pay-lines continue to be replaced until there are no more wins, and the spin is complete. While the max win would be the highest-paying symbol covering every position for 1,000x your bet, because it would pop and potentially be replaced with more winning pay-lines, an absolute maximum payout is difficult to determine.
Star balloons appear on reels one, two, and three and shoot multipliers of 2x, 3x, or 5x to the clouds. The star itself pops and is replaced by a floating symbol even if there are no current winning pay-lines.
If two or more stars appear, or an additional star appears in the floating reels after another star, the multipliers are added. For example, a 5x, 5x, and 2x star would give you a total of 12x your total spin. The game rules don’t state a maximum for star multipliers. All preceding floating reel winnings during the spin can be subject to a multiplier that doesn’t appear until the spin ends. Star multipliers appear during regular gameplay and free spins.
When three or more balloons appear during regular gameplay, they trigger the pop-me picker feature. Three large balloons appear on the screen, and you choose one to reveal the number of free spins you will receive, from four to 14.
The free spins reel set changes to a bedtime scene with the blue dog wearing an old-fashioned nightcap. Star multipliers are still active during free spins and may appear more frequently. The balloon scatter doesn’t appear during the free spins game, so you can’t re-trigger more free spins.

Final thoughts on Balloonies by IGT
At first glance, you might find yourself wondering who would want to play a slot machine that seems to be made for children. Once you get past the Sesame Street feel of the game, the star multipliers, which seem to appear quite often, are exciting enough to make this IGT slot game worth playing.
On the other hand, if you feel you’ve outgrown balloon animals and cartoon sound effects, this game may not be for you. Looking at both sides, we give this game a 7/10 rating.
