The unique themed characters of the Balloonies video slots are hot air or helium-filled balloons. As being lighter than air, they float the reels. The backdrop is the vast open blue sky over which winning combinations are formed. After each winning combination, the winning balloon characters pop up and vanish leaving those empty positions to be occupied by further upcoming new characters. This creates possibilities for creating more winning combinations, and hence, more win payouts. The process continues until there are no more wins.
The free slot Balloonies game consists of 20 fixed play lines over 5 reels and 3 rows. The betting arrangement has 6 levels. It starts with 1 coin bet per payline, the next is 2 coins, then 3, and 20 coins are the max bet per line with 5 and 10 coins bets in between. Hence, with fixed 20 paylines, the minimum total stake is 20 coins, while 400 coins are the max total stake.
