Bouncy Balls is a 5-reel slot that has 10 pay lines, with the following being the main information you’ll want to know about it:
There are, frankly, no special features of note. The only thing other than the jackpot that we’ll draw your attention to is the rather painful sounding Exploding Balls Feature.
Exploding Balls For Continuous Wins
If you see at least five balls of the same colour line-up when you press the spin button and they come crashing into the game screen then you’re allowed a mini fist-pump – it means you’ve won some money. The amount of money that you’ve won will depend on factors such as how many balls there are lined-up, which balls they are and how much money you’ve opted to play with in terms of your stake.
Where the game starts to get exciting is when the balls explode after they’ve been counted up and added to your winnings. That means that other bouncy balls from above can replace them, with the added possibility that if they’re also winners then they will also explode and disappear! This means that you could end up getting a chain-reaction win that keeps the money pouring into your account until there are no longer any winning combinations on your active reels.
The jackpot on Bouncy Balls is a progressive one, meaning that any time it’s not won it increases ever so slightly. The long it goes without someone winning it, therefore, the larger it gets until someone gets very lucky indeed.
You’ll need to play the maximum bet of £10 in order to win the full whack, with a lower stake resulting in less of a share of the total amount. In order for the jackpot to kick-in you’ll have to get eight or more fireballs landing in your square of bouncy balls.
Gameplay & RTP
Let’s be honest, 93% isn’t the best RTP out there. There are numerous games within the Virtue Fusion network that offer you more than that if the amount of money you’re likely to get back from every spin is really important to you. That said, it’s not terrible and there are also a fair number of games with a lower RTP if you end up having a look around. That’s why it’s always worth judging whether or not you want to play a game on things other than the RTP alone.
One of the things you’ll want to make that decision on when it comes to Bouncy Balls is the gameplay itself. It’s a fun little game, with each of the bouncy balls that it’s name after having a personality of their own. From the green ball that looks as though it’s been sleeping in a bin, through to the orange ball that seems delighted with life, you’ll enjoy watching them enter the game and react to bouncing into place. The reel spins nice and smoothly and the entire game works without any major hitches or problems.
The lack of decent special features is a bit of a disappointment. There are no wilds, no bonus games and nothing worth writing home about apart from the Exploding Balls Feature. That is likely to be more of a deciding factor for some of you than what the RTP is. There’s also a bit of a disconnect when it comes to the graphics. The balls are all full of personality, but their game screen sits in front of a pair of trees with a winding path behind them. It’s a touch boring in comparison to the idea of the game itself, so you might want to look for something a bit more immersive if that’s the sort of thing that matters to you.
