The Go Bananas! video slot starts with a picturesque view of a tropical island that at once makes you think of something romantic and mystique – like the Treasure Island or Pirates of the Caribbean. That must be a place to find a fortune!
Go Bananas! is a 20-pay-line video slot with five reels functioning on the NetEnt platform and having several wilds in the form of various monkeys. Besides, there are other symbols on the reels: diamonds, statues, tam-tams, ancient books or various fruits. Players are welcomed to try this colorful slot for free or to play for real money. The slot has got the same controls as all Netent slots do. The first step to start the jungle adventure is to set your bets. The bet level is modified by the Level buttons. The coins, ranging from 0.01 to 1, are adjusted by the Coin Value buttons.
There are three buttons in the middle of the bottom line: the large Spin button starts spinning the reels, the Auto Play button on the left of it rotates the reels several times in a row and the Max Bet button on the right of it spins them at the highest wager. The adjustable boxes Level and Coin Value set the level of the bets and the value of the coins for your stake respectfully. The Bet field on the extreme left shows the value of the bet per playing round and the Coins field on the extreme right shows the amount of coins available.
Any of the 5 funny Wild Monkeys can become wild symbols and so do the adjacent fruit symbols according to their arrangements. So the game possesses a Wild Gorilla, a Wild Orangutan, a Wild Baboon, a Wild Langur and a Wild Tarsier. They increase your chances to win. All of the Monkeys, when becoming wild, transform into Banana symbols with the word Wild on them. The most profitable one is the Gorilla however, it is found only on three reels out of five. The Gorilla diagonally converts four nearby symbols into Wild symbols, creating the X-like figure of five Wild symbols.
The Orangutan transforms three nearby symbols into a Wild symbol, creating a cube of four Wild symbols. Baboon changes two nearby symbols vertically, and the three Wild symbols cover the whole reel. If you can see the Langur on the reels, it converts two nearby symbols horizontally, creating a row of three Wild symbols. And the Tarsier changes only one adjacent symbol into a Wild symbol, either vertically or horizontally.
The paytable shows you what symbols are available in the game and how many coins they are worth. A winning line is formed if three or more matching symbols emerge on a fixed pay line, to read them from left to right. The paytable indicates how many coins are available for three matching symbols, four and five matching symbols. It helps you understand which symbols are most valuable after finishing a spin.
