Go Bananas is an online casino slot game created by the well known Net Entertainment software developer. As with all Net Entertainment games, Go Bananas is dripping with atmosphere, high production value, high quality symbol designs, and interactive music. There is, after all, a reason Net Entertainment is regarded as a leader in the online slot game industry.
It is difficult to not immediately be charmed by the five monkey characters that feature in Go Bananas, all of which have a unique personality and visual design. But these monkeys are not just delightful to look at, they also offer the player many unique opportunities as far as game play is concerned. Speaking of game play, Go Bananas uses a fairly standard five reel, twenty play line system, and it is in this regard that the game is a little disappointing.
The player is not allowed to manually select the number of play lines they would like to bet on, with all twenty automatically used for each spin. This robs the player of a great deal of freedom and strategy, and it seems a very odd choice by the developers for an otherwise outstanding game.
All the symbols in Go Bananas are monkey related in one way or another. The most valuable standard symbol in the game is a large gem held my monkey hands, which grants enormous payouts if matched with itself the maximum of five times. This is followed by, in order of descending value, a golden monkey statue, a book featuring a monkey shaped lock, a pair of bongo drums with a monkey face on each, and a banana split ice cream.
The lowest value symbols are all fruit related, including a coconut, lemon, and pineapple. In order to really rake in the cash, however, the player must turn their attention to the money characters for which the game was named.
The five monkey characters include the intimidating gorilla, notable for the crown atop his head, the feminine orang-utan, the mischievous looking baboon, the friendly wild langur, and the small but energetic tarsier. When any one of these characters appear on the reels they will instantly add a number of golden banana wild symbols to the play area. This event will also be accompanied by a delightful animation featuring the character.
The trick is, and there always is a trick, that each character adds wilds in a particular pattern, which may or may not be beneficial to the player at online casino Sri Lanka. The gorilla, for example, adds a wild to each side of his own symbol, up, down, left and right. It may seem like there are no down sides to getting extra wild symbols, and there technically aren’t, but the pattern of wilds given may yield absolutely nothing, depending on the other symbols currently in the play area. It should be pointed out at this time that there are no other bonuses of any kind in Go Bananas, and all chances the player has of hitting a big payout lie entirely with the monkeys. Not to say the game is a bit stingy as far as bonus payouts go, but delightful charm doesn’t count for everything as far as slot games go.
