Go Bananas! Online Slot by NetEnt
Go Bananas! is a 3D animated online video slot game designed by Net Entertainment. The game itself has a monkey/ape theme and is all about an entertaining group of primates that live together in the heart of the jungle. The backdrop to the game is a scenic view over the top of the jungle canopy. The reels themselves are constructed to resemble a type of treehouse platform. The game is filled with bright colourful graphics, smooth animation and entertaining sound effects. The background music gives the game a type of tropical feel with bongo drums accompanying every spin.
Go Bananas! is built around the standard slot setup of 5 spinning reels with a total of 20 paylines. On each spin, players can set the number of paylines played as well as the number of coins bet per payline. The game also benefits from a number of lucrative bonus features including a standard Wild symbol and transferring monkey Wilds. The highest paying symbols of the game include a strange mix of monkey themed objects. These include a large ruby, a monkey shaped wooden idol, a wad of cash with a monkey money clip, bongo drums and banana split.
Banana Wild and High Paying Symbols
The lower paying symbols in Go Bananas! are all types of fruit made to look like other types of objects. These include a basketball orange, a shuttlecock pineapple, a bowling ball coconut, a rugby ball lemon and a yoyo blueberry. The regular Wild symbol in this game is the banana. The banana can be used to substitute for any of the other regular game symbols in order to form a winning combination on any of the 20 paylines. The Wild symbol does not have a payout itself, the highest paying symbol is actually the ruby paying out 700 coins for all five across the reels on a single coin bet.
Wild Monkey Transfer Symbols
The main bonus feature in Go Bananas! is the Wild monkey feature. This is active throughout the game and is basically a set of transferring wilds. When any of the monkey’s land on the reels, they will become Wild and transfer neighbouring symbols Wild in a particular pattern. Each monkey has a different pattern. The Wild gorilla with a crown on his head will turn five symbols wild in a shape of an X. The female Wild orangutan will turn four neighbouring symbols Wild in a standard square box of four symbols.
The third monkey in Go Bananas! to turn wild is the Wild baboon. He can turn a total of three symbols Wild in a stacked pattern up and down. On the other side of the baboon is the Wild Langur. This guy can also turn 3 symbols Wild but in a side to side pattern in a single row. The final monkey that can be used a Wild transfer symbol is the Wild tarsier. This little guy is the least powerful symbol and can only turn two symbols Wild. The benefit of this symbol is that Wilds can either be stacked one on top of the other or next to each other on the reels.
