Welcome to the jungle wombat fans. A warning- this is no game for banana-phobes, but no need to fear; those bendy yellow fruit are your money-making pals now!
Now if you’re not an expert in monkeys, don’t worry, the Go Bananas slot from NetEnt is about to throw the whole animal encyclopaedia at you and better still, these hairy acrobats (I’m just jealous), are the key to making a great dollop of dosh.
Now, this wombat loves a jungle escapade- who doesn’t want to feast on coconuts, meet a raucous bunch of monkeys and make a mint? So join me up in the branches to spin the reels and set off on a treetop feast. As we have come to expect from NetEnt, this game is a visual treat when compared to more traditional fare like the Atlantis: City of Destiny slot and others, so tuck in!
Look and Feel
With graphics that are crisper than a carrot, Go Bananas slot is a treat for the eyes, and that’s not just because I love fruit… a lot. The game is soaked in all the colour and fun of a toasty and tasty jungle. This is at the opposite end of the scale to le Kaffe Bar slot from Microgaming. There are no subtle colours on this one!
There’s some great drumming and the sounds of jungle birds to deliver into your exotic game- in the trees.
Get your fruity action in a tree house over 3 rows, 5 reel and 20 pay-lines. Just collect three or more matching symbols from left to right across the reels. If you prefer Ways to Win then we’d suggest you head to the “Our Days slot” which has 243 of them.
A stonking great ruby is the highest value icon on the reels, five of this decorative gems will give you a 700 coin gift. Next up is a toothy golden statue, a stash of cash in a monkey money clip, a pair of monkey drums, and, a bowl of mouth-watering fruity dessert.
Five yummy fruits with patterns are the lower value icons of this carbohydrate heavy slot (how dreamy).
There are five different monkeys instead of a regular Wild. Which is no surprise I guess, given the game’s title. When a monkey Wild lands, it brings gifts by making some of its neighbouring icons turn Wild too. What sets these generous beasts apart is that each one brings a different pattern for creating further Wilds.
Keep that primate spotting book open for a big Wild Gorilla; a Wild Orangutan, a Wild Langur, a Wild Baboon and a Wild Tarsier (see what I mean about getting a reference book out??)
The Go Bananas slot offers a smorgasbord of delicious extras when you land one of the five monkey Wilds. So which primate will serve you up with the best chances of a banana party? After each of the beasts makes an animated entry onto the reels, the Wilds spread and turn into golden bananas with the word “Wild” across them.
Land a Wild Gorilla and you’ll see that he’s one big animated boy on the reels. He swings onto the reels creating an “X” shape of Wilds.
A boisterous Baboon makes the two adjacent icons on a reel turn Wild, vertically.
The Wild Orangutan will turn three neighbouring icons Wild to make a square of 4 Wilds.
The 3 icons in a row (vertically) can turn Wild with a Wild Langur.
And that lesser-known Wild Tarsier, makes one icon either up, or down, turn Wild in addition to the original.
I loved the swish styling and the animated characters of the five “reely” fun primates, all bearing gifts, (they’re more generous than my family!) With that many Wild extras on offer, there’s nothing to be done here but swing about and make some money.
