Over the years we have seen many interesting slots with crazy plotlines and fantastical characters. This September, Slingshot Studios will be releasing their latest slot with a theme that is simply bananas.
Releasing in association with Microgaming, Banana Odyssey is the craziest, weirdest and most exciting slot Vegas Palms Casino has seen in some time. This is a space adventure game, where the main characters are two spacefaring chimpanzees in the midst of a galactic feud over the desirable Banana Planet.
If this sounds like the perfect game for you, here are the details.
Dominating the Banana
Banana Odyssey is set for global release on the 4th of September 2019. You can experience the crazy adventures of the astrochimps right here at Vegas Palms Casino on the day of the release. In describing this game, we would say it is a space action/adventure story about two rival chimps set sometime in the distant future, and or possibly in an alternate universe.
Buck and Chip are highly advanced primates with spaceships and ray guns, looking for the ideal planet to call home. Armed with a canister of nuts and a desire for exploration, they find the Banana Planet and subsequently clash over who gets to colonise the world.
Where Space and Nuts Meet
On plot alone, Banana Odyssey is highly entertaining and worth checking out. The good news is that it is also one heck of a slots game, with plenty of bonus features and big payouts for all your needs.
Set against a backdrop of slowly drifting stars the game features state of the art graphics, highly colourful imagery and a sound track that will have you tapping your leg the whole time you play. Everything comes together perfectly with visual style, humour, adventure, game play and entertainment. A lot of thought has been put into the visual style here such as the increase in light and shifting stars the further you get into the game, giving you the feeling of accelerating through space.
Going Ape for the Details
Going on looks and feel, Banana Odyssey has it all, but how does the slot stack up in terms of specs? This is a 5-reel game with a total of 3 rows and 10 non-adjustable paylines. It has a payout percentage of 96.31% and has been rated as medium volatility. What this means is that you can expect a reasonable frequency in the payouts with a decent win amount every time. Even with a shortened gaming session, you can still expect to grab a few wins.
At the start of each new spin, you have the ability to set the coin value, the number of coins per spin and the total bet amount. The coin value can be set from 0.01 all the way through to 2.00. The game starts out with a default coin size of 0.02. The maximum number of coins you can bet per spin is 200 and the default is 100. The total bet limit is 400 with a minimum of 0.1 and a default of 2.0. The highest payout you can expect from the jackpot is 80 000 coins on a max bet and 40 000 coins on a minimum bet.
High Paying Symbols
Chip and Buck, the two chimps are the highest paying symbols in the game followed by the image of a ray gun and the tub of nuts that presumably is carried on board for a quick snack. The lower paying symbols include the classic high card symbols from Jack to Ace.
Enriching Expanding Wilds
One of the best features in Banana Odyssey is the Expanding Wild Re-Spin feature. The Wild symbol is Banana Planet, the blue/yellow globe with a banana-shaped continent. When the Wild appears on reels 2, 3 or 4, it will automatically expand and fill the entire reel. Any wins will be awarded and then a re-spin will trigger with the Wild reel held in place. This gives you a second and even better chance at landing a big win.
Free Spins for Chimps and Humans
Microgaming has left nothing out in ensuring there are winning opportunities galore; Banana Odyssey has one more bonus feature in the form of free spins. The symbol you want to look out for here is the Scatter, which simply reads “free spins”. This symbol actually has two roles. Firstly, it plays the role of a traditional Scatter, paying out in any position from left to right and right to left anywhere on the reels.
It is also the trigger for the bonus round. Land the Scatter on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time and you win 10 free spins. These spins can be re-triggered and will play with the same stakes and setting from the base games used to trigger the bonus.
