Ballin’ Slot Review – Blueprint Gaming
Well, it has been some months since I last reviewed a slot release by the studio Blueprint Gaming. There is no particular reason for this; It is just quite difficult keeping up to date with all of these wonderful providers as a solo reviewer. Blueprint Gaming has had an impressive year, with new Megaways additions and big success within the casino community. The last game I did look at by the studio is titled ‘Into The Wild Megaways’, which has a max win capped at 10,000x and a Free Spins feature with a win multiplier on offer. Today we are learning all about ‘Ballin’, which is available to play now!
This slot is all about stacks of cash and luxurious items. The game name is ‘Ballin’ which When you do some research, the term means ‘Having an ostentatiously wealthy lifestyle’. There are other meanings, but this one sums it up best. The game background looks to be set in a big American city like Los Angeles, maybe. There is a beautiful sunset between the tall buildings and palm trees. On the right is a yellow Lamborghini and on the left is an old-school red car. The reel set is a building; instead of windows & doors, there is the reel set. Plus, neon purple lights on the top & bottom and a billboard on the top with the game name. The game background has a lot of detail and depth to catch your eye. Symbols are a little more vibrant & luxurious with gold or Silver borders.
Ballin’ has a setup of 5 reels by 3-4-4-4-3 rows; this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.01% and a max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.20 to £10.
Ballin’ Symbols & Pay Table
There are 15 symbols in total; this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K and A. There are also 6 premium symbols, which are represented by Gold Watches, Gold Rings and 4 character symbols. In addition to these regular symbols is a Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Big Balls Scatter, Super Star Bonus Symbol and a Star Wild. The highest paying symbol is the Gold Bordered Character Premium, which pays 25x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds only appear on reels 2, 3 & 4, substituting for all symbols except scatters.
Ballin’ Features & Mechanics
Super Star Wilds can land on reels 2 to 4, revealing Wild Multipliers in its place and upward the reel. If a Super Star Wild lands in view and goes over any Wild Multiplier, it will upgrade any Wilds to 3x.
Big Balls Free Spins (10 Free Spins)
Landing 2 regular scatters & a Big Balls scatter during a base game spin will trigger the Big Balls Free Spins feature. Awarding 10 Free Spins, during spins, any Wild Multiplier that lands on reels 2 to 4 will remain sticky for the duration of this feature. A full reel of Wilds will award 4 additional Free Spins. Super Star Wilds are not active during this feature.
Super Star Free Spins (6 Free Spins)
Landing 2 regular scatters & a Super Star scatter during a base game spin will trigger the Big Balls Free Spins feature. Awarding 6 Free Spins, during spins, any Wild Multiplier that lands on reels 2 to 4 will remain sticky for the duration of this feature. Super Star Wilds are active, and any that land will reveal Wild Multipliers in its position and upwards on the reel. Activating a full reel will award 2 additional spins.
Overall, I think this slot is something different from Blueprint Gaming and uses a popular theme which is familiar. The art work is filled with so many details, the style is something we haven’t seen before from the studio and shows a big improvement. With a beautiful sunset in a city which never sleeps, tall buildings and luxurious cars which stand out on the streets. Low paying symbols are the typical J to A with vibrant neon colours. Premium symbols are expensive items and different cat characters. Now onto the features & mechanics;
There are 2 main Free Spins features, the first includes Wild Multiplier symbols which remain sticky on the reel set. A full reel of these special Wilds will award a retrigger. The second is with active Super Star Wilds, which reveal Wild Multipliers in its place when it lands. Be sure to try out the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
