Go Bananas! takes its theme from the world of our monkey friends, and in this instance they have brought plenty of fruit and goodies with them. The graphics are basic and cute and rather than music there is some jungle ambience as a soundtrack. The reel symbols to watch out for are The Ruby, Bongo Drum, Golden Monkey, Monkey Book, Wrist Band and Rune, as well as some classic slot symbols such as Orange, Pineapple, Lemon and Plums. The best-paying reel symbol is The Ruby, which is worth 700 coins for spinning 5 into an active pay-line. The Golden Monkey symbol is the second best symbol and will be good for 350 coins for 5 matching symbols in an active pay-line. 5 Bongo Drum symbols will win you 180 coins.
The key feature of Go Bananas! are the Monkey Wilds. There are five types of Monkey Wild that you will see on the reels, and each one has its own specific type of formation associated with it. The Wild Gorilla will bring you 5 Wild symbols in an X formation. The Wild Orang-utan will bring 4 Wilds in a Square shape. The Wild Baboon will bring 3 Wilds Stacked. The Wild Langur will show up with 3 Wilds in a row, while the Wild Tarsier will land on the reels with 2 Wilds, either vertically or horizontally. Of course, the appearance of one or more Monkey Wild can lead to some big pay-outs.
The game does not feature any Bonus games, Free Spins or Multipliers. However, the frequency of the Wilds does make for some fairly regular pay-outs and the variance does feel rather low. As you might expect with low variance games, the pay-outs tend to be on the small side. However, there are also some very high pay-outs at the upper end, as the game advertises a Jackpot pay-out of 140,000 coins.
The Return to Player (RTP) for Go Bananas! is 96.9%, which is excellent value for a Video Slot. The Monkey Wilds are clearly its best feature and possibly the only thing that will keep players coming back to this game. It is a pity that Net Entertainment didn’t elaborate further with some Free Spins or a Bonus Round, as this game could have been one of the best games going if there was another dimension to the gameplay. As it stands, this one is worth a look, even if it doesn’t hold your attention for too long.
