Evolution’s 4th Gen Live Slot – Balloon Race Out Soon!

Here comes one of Evolution’s most anticipated live slot games of the year: Balloon Race Live. It’s inspired by the mechanics of Crazy Coin Flip and Crazy Pachinko, and has an aerial theme reminiscent of Pragmatic’s Sweet Bonanza Candyland. Here’s a quick look at what makes Balloon Race a standout addition to the live gaming arena.

The Three-Phase Gameplay

Balloon Race unfolds in three distinct phases, each designed to build anticipation and maximize your potential winnings:

  1. Qualification Phase: The adventure begins with a 5-reel, 3-row slot game featuring 10 fixed winlines. As usual, 3-of-a-kind or better wins a prize. There are also Expanding Wilds, which can help to trigger the main bonus with Scatter symbols. The latter come with multipliers of up to 30x, which carry over to the bonus round during a trigger spin: with either 3 Scatters or Scatters and Expanding Wilds.
  2. Top-Up Phase: After qualifying, you move to the Top-Up phase. During this phase, you can release 3-6 balloons each turn, containing potential top-up values. These balloons either pop or reach the top, adding their values to the total bonus. You can increase your top-up bet amount to enhance the multipliers, thereby increasing your overall winnings.
  3. Balloon Race Bonus Round: The climax of the game is the Balloon Race Bonus round, hosted live by a dynamic game presenter. In this phase, a ball drawing machine propels balloons upwards based on the color of the drawn balls. The first balloon to cross the finish line determines the winning multiplier, which is then applied to your bet.

Spin Modes

  • Spin Modes: Balloon Race offers three spin modes—Normal, XXXtreme, and Super XXXtreme. The Normal spin is set by default, while the XXXtreme and Super XXXtreme spins guarantee either scatter or Expanding Wild symbols at an increased cost. Specifically, the XXXtreme spin costs 5x the base bet, and the Super XXXtreme spin costs 50x the base bet, both increasing the likelihood of landing higher multipliers.

Statistical Breakdown and Bet Limits

With a theoretical payout percentage (RTP) of 96.09%, Balloon Race is designed to offer a fair and engaging gaming experience. The RTPs for the different spin modes are as follows:

  • Normal Spin: 96.09%
  • XXXtreme Spin: 96.00%
  • Super XXXtreme Spin: 96.03%
  • Top-Up: 96.05%

Here are the bet limits across different bets and game stages:

  • Normal Spin: 0.10 – 25
  • XXXtreme Spin: 0.50 – 125
  • Super XXXtreme Spin 5 – 1,250
  • Top Up Phase: 0.10 – 1,500.

Final Thoughts

Balloon Race by Evolution promises wins of up to 500,000 credits. While statistically far out of reach, the key to big wins hides in the pre-bonus Scatter multipliers and the Top-Up round. Therefore, make sure to plan ahead and don’t get too greedy with the base bet which can quickly eat into any profit. While the slot part of the game is rather boring and least-rewarding, the live Pachinko bonus round can get exciting very fast. 

The game will be rolled out across Evolution partner casinos from June 19 and is set for wide release on July 3.
