The Incredible Balloon Machine Review
Crazy Tooth Studios is constantly working to create innovative iGaming titles that shake up the industry entire. Some of these adventures have been bad but others have led to interesting games such as The Incredible Balloon Machine.
This is a unique type of crash game with no reels or paylines but instead contains the original Wincrease mechanic. Whilst this may sound scary, it basically allows the players to hold down the middle button to inflate a balloon and collect just before it pops.
There is a definite steampunk edge on this slot are brassy colours such as bronze and gold. This slot seems to take place during the Victorian era or in a futuristic setting where steampunk stands tall.
In the centre of the screen is the balloon machine with the steampunk-looking invention. The slot opens up in the sky with clouds moving, other balloons in the distance and leaves blowing in the wind. However, it's worth mentioning that the background changes to nighttime during the bonus round and multipliers.
In between spins, the music is a steady drum beat paired with ambient noises but this changes to a more intense sound throughout the gameplay. The music almost feels tropical and it's what you'd expect to hear on vacation which is quite strange.
The name of this game may sound quite convoluted, but it's incredibly simple to follow. Firstly, players click on the red button and then they hold it down until there is a collect button. After this moment, players decide when to collect.
Menu buttons such as the bet level and other paytable settings can be found to the right of the reels. The middle of the screen contains the red spin button that blows up the balloon.
The Incredible Balloon Machine has respectable statistics for a crash game starting with the RTP of 96.75% which is high for an online slot and decent for a crash game. Most crash games do not have a volatility level, but this one has a medium level giving both high and low volatility wins which sounds about right for this game.
As for the biggest wins, many different facts have stated the maximum win of 3,082x stake but we never saw anything over 100x the stake. For players to win the bigger wins, they will certainly have to have patience and the bankroll to sustain themselves.
Crazy Tooth Studios is definitely hit and miss with most of its releases but there is no denying that The Incredible Balloon Machine is original. It's different to typical crash games but also completely different to online slots.
It's a mixture of the both blended together to create easy but entertaining gameplay that is sure to keep players engaged if only for a little while. If this sounds like the sort of game for you, then do not hesitate to give it a spin.
