Microgaming, a leading supplier of award-winning online gaming software to the leading operators around the world, will be releasing a new slot game from Eyecon later this month titled “Bouncy Balls 2”.

The 5×5 grid new slot game is filled with colorful characters and players can win up to 5,000 and 10,000x their stake from the 2 top-tier balls. The bonus round in the slot game comes with a grid that expands after each spin sequence.

Bouncy Balls 2” is a lighthearted and fun slot game that comes with an RTP of 95.29 percent.

The Cluster Wins feature is activated by all wins and sees winning symbols removed to make room for new/existing symbols to drop down from above to fill the gaps. Players can get indefinite extra wins per spin as the process repeats as long as new winning clusters keep landing.

The Bonus Round is triggered by racking up a minimum of 3 Bonus Ball scatters in a cascading sequence. This comes with a special PowerUpBall symbol that lands at the end of each cascading sequence and increases the grid from 5×5 to 6×6, 7×7 and finally to 8×8. The bonus round ends when the cascading sequence is finished once the grid is fully expanded to 8×8.

The base game allows players to see some bouncy balls action for a minute or so until the bonus round is triggered.

The perfect scenery then shifts from day to night and the bird in the tree is replaced by a surprised owl.
