The Wombat says: One thing’s for sure wombat fans and that’s The Incredible Balloon Machine slot from Crazy Tooth Studios is unlike any slot you’ve played before. We love a different spin on the usual formula (another classic is the Furlong Fortunes Sprint slot which is a mash up of a slot and virtual horse racing), so we were itching to get our paws on this one.
So what’s the deal? Well, instead of reels and rows, you’ll make your wins through a weird machine thing that inflates balloons. The aim of the game is to make these balloons as big possible before they burst, and as you do the cash prizes will also increase and pop into your bank balance.
Has it been inspired by Around the World In 80 Days by Jules Verne? And what kind of mad slot scientist came up with the idea in the first place? Who knows. But this wombat’s going to give it a go anyway…
Look and Feel
Your crazy inflatable gameplay is set in a hot air balloon with clouds whizzing past and the occasional flock of birds flying by. There’s also a light blue sky and that bonkers balloon-blowing machine which is made from shiny brass.
This wombat particularly likes the cool 3D effects on offer here – e.g as the balloons get bigger the machine starts to shake dangerously. Yup, visually this game is first class, with sharp animated graphics and a jaunty soundtrack.
There are no reels or paylines in Incredible Balloon Machine slot, instead the ‘spin’ button in the centre of the screen will inflate the aforementioned balloons and help you make wins. If you are more of a reels type of Wombat, we would recommend the Kalahari Safari slot as that has 1024 Ways to Win.
You’ll bag payouts when you have reached the top cash amount while the balloon is still inflated. It´s bananas! Even more so than the Banana Drop slot we would say.
If it pops, the prize is lost, if not, you can claim the wonga. Simple.
Oh, and if you can’t be bothered blow up balloons (which is fair enough really) the game also comes with an autoplay button, which you’ll find under the bet button.
Play starts at €0.20 and goes up €75.00 to per turn.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Now this is what we like to see! A random multiplier! This can be triggered at any time during any game and can add a 2x to 10x multiplier to your winnings. Kerching! That sounds very nice indeed…
Bonus Pick Feature
Inflate the golden balloon and you’ll set off the Bonus Pick round. It will begin to blow up like the other balloons, and if it reaches full size before it bursts, it will trigger the feature.
Next, you’ll see 5 balloons on the screen. As you pick each one you’ll uncover cash win amounts, multipliers and one that’s got ‘advance’ on it. If you get your mitts on this one, you’ll get the chance to pick from another 5 balloons. But, if you find the words ‘complete’, the bonus is over for you.
It all sounds bit crazy, doesn’t it wombat fans? And to be honest with you, it is. But it’s also a lot of fun, particularly if you’re feeling a bit jaded by the standard slot games. Take a deep breath and get ready go blow for gold! It’s a ‘thumbs up’ from us.
Wombat score: 4/5
