What is this mobile slot about?

IGT introduce to you the hexagonal Bubble Craze mobile slot, that’s more than a little different, yet still much of the same.

The craze for slot games that aren’t slots continues. First we had a bet real money Bejewelled, then Betsoft came long with SugarPop! and Play’n Go brought you the strangely captivating Gemix slot.

Now IGT have done their own variation with the techno crazy Bubble Craze video slot game. Played in portrait only (you’ll understand why when you load the game), it’s far more suited as an Android phone or iPhone slot than tablets for that reason alone.

A game is still a game, even if you can bet on it

The little coloured bubbles float from the bottom up. You’ll need to get four of the same colour touching to get a win. Though we found that unless you get at least 8 symbols on screen, the wins in this Bubble Craze slot machine are pretty minimal.

Thankfully there are a couple of symbols helping your wallet along the way. The multiplier bubble gives you either x2 or x5 your win, though it’s far rarer than the unique Transform bubble. This little beauty turns every bubble adjacent the same colour, which if it sits right in the middle of the screen, gives you at least a 6 of a kind win, if not usually more.

As you can see, this isn’t your run of the mill slot machine.

We want an IGT video slot

The thing is, that IGT do slot machines beautifully well. But Bubble Craze lacks that IGT magic. The sounds are something that a 16 year old created at home with their electric keyboard, which meant we turned the sound off early on.

And once the sounds were off, the theme become fairly boring and standard, even with the special symbols.

But, IGT can be relied on to do one thing right: the free spin games.

The Bubble Craze slot free spins round

Here’s where the real wins come, and the real excitement lies. You only get 5 free spins, but every one of them counts, as you are guaranteed a multiplier and a transform symbol on every spin.

Meaning you can actually walk away with about 40x to 50x your bet on an average free spin round. Sometimes a lot more.

Still, unless you catch those free spins early on, we suspect that Bubble Craze mobile slot will get old very quickly.

In-game bonus features

Bubble 'All Ways' Win: This just means that you need 4 bubbles of the same colour touching to get a win.

Transform Bubble: This is a bubble that has arrows pointing every which way in the centre. They come in several colours and when they show up, they turn any adjacent bubbles the same colour.

Multiplier Bubble: Some bubbles show up with either a 2x or 5x multiplier on them. However they only count if they are part of the same group of colour bubbles, not by simply being next to a winning group of bubbles.

Honestly we didn't think we'd ever have to write 'bubbles' so often in a few sentences.

Free Spins Bonus: The multicoloured atoms are the free spin symbols, and you need three anywhere on the screen to trigger 5 free spin rounds.

The good news is that you are guaranteed to get a 5x multiplier symbol and a transform symbol on each and every round. It makes for some fairly profitable wins.


Closing thoughts

The free spins save this Bubble Craze mobile phone slot game, but we just don't see ourselves returning to it often enough to give it more than two stars.

The fact you need at least 8 or more symbols to get anything above your bet is probably also why we couldn't enjoy it, as with the sounds.

Yet, as low variance slots go, this is one of IGTs few games that won't eat up your budget completely and offer something a little different.

Though we'd probably still prefer to play the Balloonies slot machine.
