The second instalment of these air filled animals sees us head to the Balloonies Farm mobile slot for some more fun filled action.
It’s been 3 years since the original Balloonies slot hit our mobile casino screens with jungle themed balloon animals floating around giving us some pretty decent wins.
Now IGT games studios have decided to make a sequel, taking us to the farm where we see some big eyed sheep and cows along side A, K and Q symbols making a big bang.
However, it wouldn’t be a sequel if they hadn’t changed a few things up; for one this Balloonies Farm game is medium instead of low variance machine and you get your choice of free spins.
Thank-fully they’ve kept the floating reels and multiplier wilds.
This is pretty much the same as the original, whenever there’s a win the symbols will pop and the remaining symbols will float up to replace the winning ones.
Much like you get with the cascading reels in Microgaming’s Jungle Jim, except the symbols float up from below rather than drop from above.
A feature that can give you multiple wins in a row, and brings some much needed action to these five reels, however it feels a little more forced in this Balloonies Farm slot.
Don’t get us wrong, the star multiplier feature which sees wilds provide you with 2x, 3x or 5x multipliers on a win, certainly help liven things up.
But you don’t get as easy an avalanche of wins as with the first, making things very slow till you get to the free spins.
Unlike the original, where you got a pick me game to randomly reward you with free spins, here you get your choice of 4 different free spin scenarios each with a different multiplier.
The question you have to ask yourself is do you go risky and choose five free spins with 5x or 10x wild multipliers (and potentially bigger wins)? Or do you play it safe with 15 free spins and 2x multipliers?
There are three more options in between. Our advice: go for those bigger multipliers, the wins might not always be that big and this is your one chance of getting 60x your bet wins, or more.
It’s the one plus to choosing this Balloonies Farm slot over the original; and, to be honest, it’s one real thrill.

Star Multiplier Feature (Wilds): The bright yellow wild is the wild symbol, and when it shows up during the base game on a winning payline it will provide you with either a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier on that win.
Floating Reels Feature: Basically cascading reels but in reverse. Symbols that make up a winning combination will explode and more symbols will float up from below to replace them. If they create another winning combination it will repeat, hopefully creating more and bigger wins.
Free Spins Bonus:
Find the red balloon bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you'll be rewarded with a choice of 4 different free spins bonuses with multipliers:
A few of the main features, and the bright funky colours that made the original mobile game so popular, are back - which is always good.
The choice of free spins offers you the chance to go all out and hopefully win big or play it a little safer in the hope of some decent returns.
However, it doesn't quite match the originals success mostly because increasing the volatility creates some fairly boring base game base game wins.
However, if you like the slower pace of IGT games like Pixies of The Forest slot game, for example, then this is perfect for you.
This is a quirky, fun-filled slot and you can't go wrong with some Balloonies Farm on mobile slot action.
Or you can play Balloonies Farm at one of these mobile casinos: Vera & John,
