Get ready to join a loony cast of characters in Habanero’s latest online pokies game Loony Blox. This machine is made for fans of cartoons or for those of you who just want a bit of fun. And who doesn’t want a little bit of fun in their lives?
Will Loony Blox have you laughing or the way to the bank or turning it off before it gets going? Let’s find out all about this fresh pokie machine.
Loony Blox Fundamentals?
Loony Blox is a traditional 5×3 video pokie that has up to 243 possible winlines. It’s fresh to the online casino market with Habanero launching it on February 21, 2020. The game is advertised as being highly volatile, which is in line with other Habanero titles.
You can bet as little as $0.25 per spins or as much as $500 if you have the bankroll. Each spin makes it possible to win up to 1,000-times your stake, so the maximum possible win weighs in at $500,000!
We must warn you that Loony Blox comes with a wide range of Return To Player (RTP) figures. This feature is available on all Habanero pokies and we’re not fans. Why? Because casino set their own RTP as they see fit. One RTP can make a pokie awesome, another makes it unplayable.
Loony Blox’s standard RTP is 96.71% which is pretty good. It can go as high as 98.02% but as low as 92.06%. It’s worth noting anything under 92% tends not to be eligible for a gambling license. Personally, we wouldn’t play Loony Blox with an RTP less than 96.71%.
Loony Blox Visuals and Audio
The graphics of Loony Blox are almost cartoon-like, as you would expect from a pokie with such a name. All colours are clear and vibrant while the sounds also make you feel you’re watching a cartoon. We thought the sounds and music would get annoying after a while but they didn’t. We did, however, find ourselves humming the tune so be warned!
A variety of symbols are on show, including delicious cherries, mouth-watering watermelons, lemons, along with diamonds and bells.
You’ll also come across a trio of different animals. The elephant, wolf, and rabbit are higher paying symbols and also come into play in another way. More on that soon. A cactus is your wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols.
What Are This Pokies’ Features?
Remember we told you about the three animal symbols? Well, they each have their own special features they bring to the game. Each animal appears next to the reels and stays there for 250 spins before being replaced.
Having elephant in play randomly gives you expanding wilds. The wild cactus symbol stretches to fill an entire column, making big wins possible. Wolf is handy to have in play too because paylines payout both ways from left to right and vice versa. Finally, rabbit throws down a net that links reels two through five.
This novel feature is good fun and makes you want to continue playing until you’ve experienced all three characters.
Loony Blox also has a special map feature that acts as a mini-game. The game’s three characters are driving cars around the map. How far they move depends on how many animal symbols you match. There are coloured dots around the map that trigger special bonuses and features if landed on.
The green dot, for example, immediately gives you 12 free spins. All these map bonuses are amplified by the character shown on your screen. This means combining the likes of elephants expanding wilds while you enjoy free spins.
Loony Blox is fun to play and looks great but it is more than a pretty face. We’re big fans of the changing features brought on by the three different characters too.
Our Loony Blox pokie, which we played at Pokie Spins, had the 96.71% RTP activated. We enjoyed ourselves at this level so can only imagine the excitement of the 98.02% variant. Stay well clear of anyone offering this pokie with 92.06% RTP though.
