Qualification phase

The game begins with the Qualification phase, played using a five-reel, three-row slot with 10 fixed winlines, one scatter symbol, one Expanding Wild and eight paying symbols (10, J, Q, K, A, Bronze Ribbon, Silver Ribbon).

The goal here is to land a set of any three symbols — either scatter symbols or Expanding Wilds. Scatter symbols might occasionally include multipliers. Expanding Wilds can substitute for any other symbol across the entire reel except for the scatter, increasing your odds of hitting a qualifying combination.

After successfully qualifying, any multipliers (up to 10x) you gathered are added and used in the Balloon Race Bonus round to calculate the final multipliers. 

Spin modes

The Qualification slot features three spin modes: Normal spin (set by default), XXXtreme spin and Super XXXtreme spin.

To spin the Qualification slot, select the bet amount and click/tap SPIN.

  • The bet selected in Normal spin mode becomes your base bet and will be used to calculate your winnings.
  • Activating either of the XXXtreme spin modes will help you qualify faster by guaranteeing either a scatter or Expanding Wild symbol in each spin at the cost of an increased spin bet amount. Activating XXXtreme spin mode costs five times your base bet for one guaranteed scatter or Expanding Wild symbol and increases the chance of getting better multipliers.
  • Activating Super XXXtreme spin mode costs 50 times the base bet for two guaranteed scatter or Expanding Wild symbols and increases the chance of getting even better multipliers.
  • Payouts will be calculated using the base bet.

Top-Up phase

After qualifying for the Balloon Race Bonus round and while waiting for it to begin, you have the option to participate in the Top-Up phase to boost the multipliers for each balloon colour.

Press TOP UP to release 3-6 balloons (maximum two of each colour), each containing a possible Top-Up value. As the balloons ascend, they can either pop or reach the top, where the respective bonus value of the balloon is added to the corresponding finish target. These values will be added to the Bonus game's total bonus value.

To spin and release the Top-Up balloons, the minimum Top-Up bet amount equals the base bet you qualified with.

By choosing to increase the Top-Up bet amount, you also increase the value of multipliers.

Once the Top-Up time runs out, you are transferred to the Balloon Race Bonus round. 

Before the live Bonus round begins, a plane will unleash random multipliers for each colour. These multipliers will be multiplied by the scatter multipliers, then added to your Top-Up multiplier to determine the final multipliers for the Balloon Race.

Balloon Race Bonus game

The Bonus game features a ball drawing machine with 80 balls in yellow, purple, green and red (20 balls of each of the four colours) and different multipliers awaiting the hot air balloons at the finish line.

The race begins with coloured balls being drawn, and the balloon of the matching colour ascends one step upwards. The ball-drawing fun continues until a balloon reaches the top after five repetitions. The colour of the winning balloon determines the multiplier for all players.

At the end of the race, your final payout is determined by combining all multipliers from the Qualification phase, Top-Up phase, and Bonus round.
