Go Bananas Review
Go Bananas is a 5 reels and 20 pay lines video slot powered by NetENT. The slot includes a variety of Monkeys, Gorillas and Apes, to be more specific all creatures that are known to adore bananas and act bananas at times.
The slot is playable from as little as 20p a spin to a maximum of 200 a spin. It’s a fast paced slot that comes with the crazy surprise of 5 Wilds that take over the screen in animated form once they are triggered. Players can win up to 500 times their stake while player this slot. The only downside of this simplistic and incredibly fun slot is that it is only playable on Desktop which means mobile and tablet using gamers won’t have the opportunity to Go Bananas on the go.
Look & Feel
The graphics of this slot is a breath of fresh air, the superb designs are funky, colourful and animated. The reels are set in a tree house in the middle of a tropical jungle and mischievous monkeys take over the screen as your high value symbols along with a Red Gemstone, a Golden Monkey statue, a roll of cash in a monkey clip, monkey bongo drums and a banana split.
The slot breaks away from using card symbols as the low value symbols of the slot. Instead the low value symbols are exotic fruits including Coconuts, Pineapples, lemons, limes and plums. The slot has five wilds namely: The Wild Gorilla, Wild Orangutan, Wild Baboon, Wild Langur and Wild Tarsier and they become animated when they are triggered for a bonus feature. The slot is truly a visual delight, It’s easy to play and it just makes you feel like a child again where you get to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
Sound & Score
Go Bananas comes with a highly energetic and nature themed soundtrack. Whenever you are not spinning the reels the sounds of nature will fill your ears. To be honest, we found ourselves just taking it in at times. It’s so realistic that it’s easy to picture yourself in the middle of the jungle somewhere surrounded by exotic birds, animals and plants.
When you spin the reels you’ll find yourself wiggling along to the funky music complete with bongo drums and other more natural instruments. What’s nice about the soundtrack is that each spin has a different tune accompanying it, so your first spin and second spin will not have the same tune which keeps the repetition from becoming annoying. It was highly refreshing to find a slot that takes that into consideration.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The Go Bananas slot doesn’t include a lot of Bonus features but it does offer 5 Wild Symbols. What makes these features so unique, special and rewarding is the fact that they Wilds will become live and appear on the screen to well… Go Bananas while awarding you with magnificent winning combinations.
The ultimate Wild of the slot is the Golden Banana with the word “Wild” written inside. As mentioned there are five symbols that turn wild in the slot. The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols on the reels to provide you with the highest possible winning combination per bet line. In this slot the Wild Symbol only becomes visible when it is activated by the Wild Monkey Symbols.
Each of the five different Wild Monkey Symbols turns themselves and adjacent symbols into Wilds in a unique way. Each monkey has its own pattern and amount of symbols it turns into wilds.
The Wild Gorilla will turn 5 connecting symbols into wilds, the Wild Orang-utan turns four adjacent symbols into wilds (in the form of a block), the Wild Baboon turns three symbols in one reel into wilds, the Wild Langur turns three horizontally aligning symbols into wilds and the Wild Tarsier turns two adjacent symbols into wilds and they can either be horizontal or vertical.
Is it worth playing?
Yes! Go Bananas is not nearly as rich in bonus features as Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood but it is a slot worth playing simply for its uniqueness. Go Bananas is all about the fun; while playing it you’ll forget about stress, worries and anything else that mind be on your mind. You’ll be able to lose yourself in the moment with the sounds of nature calming you and the goofy monkeys turning your frown upside down. Go Bananas is definitely a slot for everyone.
