Apples are nice, oranges sweeter but Bananas Rock! That is what we will enjoy on this brand new release from Play’n GO. Based on a theme evolving around a musical band of monkeys, this brightly coloured slot promises to deliver mega wins via multiple features and a new mechanic called Encore Spin, which can lead to a win of up to 2,500 times your stake.
The action on Banana Rock goes down on five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Low rollers will be pleased with bets starting at 0.10 credits while the big bettors can stake as much as 100 credits. Banana Rock has been released with a generous RTP of 96.60% and falls into the high variance category according to Play’n GO.
This groovy slot has a flashy game window with speakers blaring rock tunes and stage lights flaring up on winning spins. The monkey band members feature prominently on the reels. The colour palette is held in mostly neon colours with the band name towering on top of the window.
The four card suits J, Q, K and A are the low paying symbols, awarding wins of 4 times your bet for five on a pay line. The five groovy monkeys are the premium symbols. In ascending order, they are the bongo drummer, the bass player, the keyboarder, the drummer and the guitarist. Hitting five on a line pays 8 to 40 times your stake.
A smirking monkey on a golden vinyl record is the lead singer of the band and the Rock ‘n’ Rollin’ wild symbol. The scatter symbol is a bunch of bananas with the slot logo, appearing on reels one and five only. Landing both simultaneously will trigger the free spins feature.
The first moment to score big wins comes from this base game feature. It is triggered when two or more Rock ‘n’ Rollin’ wilds land in view on a spin. While the reels respin, the right most wild will move first horizontally then vertically towards the left most wild, connecting with any other wilds on the reels and leaving a trail of wilds in the path they have taken as they move to their new position.
The feature with initially 10 free spins is triggered by landing banana scatters on reels one and five on the same spin. Any scatter during the round will award one extra free spin. The aim in the free spins is to hit fully stacked premium symbols as they will add a x1 multiplier for each occurrence, up to x5 for each band member. The multipliers are applied to associated winning combinations for the remaining free spins.
Sounds like a pretty normal free spins round so far, but there is an extra twist waiting after the last free spin. Once that is completed, the game awards one Encore Spin with only the band members on the reels. All multipliers collected during the free spins are added and the total is applied to any wins from the Encore Spin. The very moment where the game can produce the maximum win of 2,500 times the bet.
Well, Rock ‘N’ Roll or time to just Roll Out? Rock ‘N’ Roll it is, the louder the better. The catchy graphics, the groovy soundtrack and big win potential, even on smaller bets, all comes together on Banana Rock to deliver a truly enjoyable slot that deserves to be on every player’s favourite list. No doubt, Play’n GO are proving once again why they are one of the leading game providers in today’s crowded online casino world.
