Bouncy Balls is a game that has divided keen slot players across the board. Unlike almost any other video slot you’ve played before, this Playtech game does not have a traditional pay line and reels set up. Instead, Bouncy Balls has a set of balls which explode in turn and reward you with cash prizes. Seasoned slot goers will recognise the style of game play in Bouncy Balls as being nearly identical to the classic Playtech number, Chain Reactors.
There isn’t much to say about the theme of Bouncy Balls. Playtech have kept the design of the game refreshingly simple, with a sunshine soaked meadow in the background and two oak trees on either side of the reels. There are only six symbols for you to play with in this game. They are each a different brightly coloured ball; Fireball, Hardball, Oddball, Iceball, Furball and Goofball.
How to play
The game play in Bouncy Balls is quite unlike anything we’re used to in Playtech slots. It is most similar to Chain Reactors and is, in fact, extremely simple to pick up and get used to. All you have to do in this straightforward game is find matching lines of five or more symbols going either horizontally or vertically. When a winning combination becomes lined up, the balls will explode and disappear, allowing more symbols to fall into their space. The Fireball symbol is the key to the progressive jackpot. Find eight or more to nab the top prize.
Bonuses and extras
Sadly for bonus lovers, there are no free spins rounds, multipliers or even scatters and wilds in this game. The progressive jackpot seems to be the only extra feature available. So, if you like your slots to be straightforward with no frills, you’ll love this one.
