How to play BubblesClick here for a print friendly version
The future is now and it smells like the 80s! Not so much of a themed slot, the brand new Bubbles from Quasar Gaming lands you straight on the dancefloor of a disco party taking place, like, 30 years ago with the glow of neon lights fusing with some proper synthpop tunes to create an ambience that simply won’t let you go! Prepare to spend endless hours gazing at… Bubbles! Yes, there’s nothing else on the reels but bubbles, yet the design and overall execution of the game is so much of a breakthrough that trying it out is an absolute must for every single slot lover out there.

No coins, no calculations: placing your bet is a matter of merely pressing the “+” and “-” buttons just below the reels to increase or lower the amount. The paytable will show you the worth of all possible winning combinations depending on your current bet, and once you’ve found the proper balance between your ambitions and bankroll, hit the Start button and let the bubbles do their thing… Alternatively, you can switch on the Autoplay function and meditate on their psychedelic dance without making a single move.
However futuristic the slot may look like, there are still five reels, so the best outcome of a regular spin is landing 5 identical bubbles on one or more of the 10 win lines which are always in play. The bubbles are completely identical except the colour: there are 7 kinds of bubbles on the reels – blue, violet, red, green, acid-yellow, purple and orange. As clearly shown in the paytable, colour determines the bubble’s value: for example, a combination of 5 yellow bubbles is worth 6 times your bet, while 5 orange ones will give you as much as 25 times the money you have staked!
You will definitely notice three strange objects floating below reels 2, 3 and 4. Those are the wild bubbles, and during any spin they can float up at random and turn the bubbles on their way into copies of themselves. Then they will lock in their position and the other reels will re-spin until a winning combination is achieved. If more wild bubbles float up during the re-spin, you will be granted more re-spins: in other words, a massive boost for your bankroll is guaranteed.
Every time the bubbles pay out, you can take a little bit of risk on go for the double-or-nothing Gamble game which involves guessing the colour of a downward-facing playing card – red or black. As long as you are correct, you can keep guessing and further doubling the already doubled prize, but guess wrong and you lose it all. This function is particularly useful when you are not quite satisfied with the amount won.
