It’s a jungle out there thanks to the developers at Netent who have put together the 5-reel and 20-fixed paylines slot Go Bananas! It’s fair to say that this slot doesn’t monkey around with prizes of as much as 140,000 coins if you can land 20 paylines with red ruby symbols!
Appealing graphics & sounds
The cartoon setting for this little adventure is a tropical jungle dotted with palm trees and rolling hills, which is home to our primate friends who will play a pivotal part in the success of your coin-gathering hunt. Big mouth-watering plums, lemons, coconuts, pineapples and oranges are your entry-level prizes, but you can also land banana splits, bongo drums, a book, monkey idol and red ruby for greater rewards. You will also find that the primates come in all sorts of fun shapes and sizes and swing by on occasion which is never a bad thing for your pocket! The sound effects are spectacular with the effect of a real live jungle with birds and primates almost making you believe that you are actually there. The music has a tropical beat with the sound of drums, which may even have you rocking in your seat.
Apes really do go wild!
The banana wild symbol in this slot substitutes for any other symbol but can only be triggered with wild monkey symbols. There are five different wild monkeys that include a gorilla, orang-utan, langur and tarsier that can appear on the reels. Each one of them has the ability to transform themselves and adjacent spaces into wild symbols based on a pattern unique to each of them.
No Monkey Business
The theoretical return to player for Go Bananas is 96.9%. Bets can swing from €0.20 to €20 letting you decide how conservative you want to be. With 20 paylines and 5 very effective banana wild symbols you might forget that there is really very little in the way of features so forget scatters, bonus’ or gambles to name a few. Still, you will likely find that the wins occur frequently anyways with prizes that are along the lines of your bet size with the potential for a larger payout every once in a while, to keep your appetite intact. I found the theme playful and comical at times and the game does offer excellent prizes of up to 700x your bet with some lesser but still significant prizes of 350x, 250x and 180x your wager. There is no monkey business with this slot and we think that the prizes are appealing and while the lack of features might make the game a little less exciting to play for extended periods of time it is certainly worth playing.
