Get a hot air balloon they said. It would be fun they said. Wrapped around an electricity pylon I ended.
You’ll be up, up and away as you take to the skies in the Great Balloon Adventure online slots game. Loosely based on Around the World in 80 Days, the popular 19th Century novel by Jules Verne, you don’t need to have read the book to enjoy playing this light-hearted slots game, which is packed with entertaining features.
As you’d expect from an online slots game with a hot-air ballooning theme, the reels are predominantly a clear, sky blue. Behind them, you can just catch a glimpse of the dastardly villain, complete with a black top hat. His dark beard, moustache and eyebrows manage to convey the message that he’s up to no good, as he leans out of his balloon’s basket, intent on mischief and mayhem.
In addition to the villain, you’ll also find a bumbling character attempting what seems to be the world’s first ever bungee jump, a beautiful woman in a red dress and our hero, who wears a white suit and hat, to make him easily identifiable, according to conventional depictions of good versus evil in popular culture.
When any of the principal characters appears in a winning line, their symbols animate with a touch of humour. So you’ll find the hapless buffoon seemingly hurtling towards the ground, before being pulled back to his balloon by a length of elasticated rope. And the heroine waves her white handkerchief at her beau, before it’s snatched from her hand by the wind and blown back into her face. These are nice touches that encourage players to engage fully with the game.
Aside from the main characters, you’ll also see the usual court card symbols, so popular in online slots games. Here they have been given a balloon-themed makeover, appearing as giant symbols stitched onto individual hot-air balloons. These smaller-paying symbols spin and float away when they feature in a winning line.
An elegant hero, a dastardly villain, a bumbling buffoon and a beautiful girl are all battling to compete in the world’s first hot-air balloon race, as you spin the reels in search of that longed-for Big Win.
The Great Balloon Adventure slots game offers a minimum 2x multiplier. This equals a low-limit bet of 0.80 per spin, and you can raise this by scrolling through multipliers to a maximum stake of 200.00 per spin. The pay table shows your wins in coin values without any multiplier.
Following a win, the symbols involved in every winning line disappear, with new symbols falling down from above to take their place, with the potential to create further winning lines.
Of course, in Great Balloon Adventure the new symbols float up from below, rather than dropping down from above, but the principle remains the same.
The game’s logo is the wild symbol, and although it doesn’t bring any cash rewards of its own, it has the ability to substitute for all the other symbols on the reels, other than the scatter symbol, so it has the potential to deliver some tempting cash rewards whenever it appears.
There’s also a scatter symbol, which is represented by a trophy and appears on the second, third and fourth reels. Whenever three scatter symbols appear on the reels simultaneously, the bonus round is triggered, leading to even more chances to win.
This game is supplied by Scientific Games and is certified by the UK Gambling Commission as having been independently tested and up to the required standards for players in the UK. If you experience any difficulties with this game or any other game you should follow our Complaints procedure and contact us.
The game comes with a Tumbling Reels feature – although this happens in reverse, as symbols tumble upwards. Often called cascading reels, this feature sees any symbols that make up a winning combination disappear, leaving spaces for new ones to float up into.
If new combinations are created, these will also vanish and so on, until no new wins are seen. It’s a fantastic feature which saw our Great Balloon Adventure online slot review team landing several wins from a single stake.
The game logo, designed in a classic Victorian style that fits in with the era, is a wild symbol. It isn’t worth anything on its own and can’t replace the image of a trophy, but it’s very useful in completing extra winning lines for you when it’s able to bridge the gaps in a sequence of matching symbols.
The trophy is a scatter symbol that awards ten free games whenever three or more are seen on the middle three reels. The free spins round of the Great Balloon Adventure slot machine will play out on different reels, although it’s mainly the colour scheme that changes, as the payouts are the same. You can retrigger this bonus round with any three or more scatters, to a high limit of 60 free spins.
