Banana Rock Slot
- Another music-themed slot which looks great and has good features
- Re-spin feature allows you to get more Wild symbols for extra wins
- Encore Spin can generate some huge payouts up to 2,500x your bet
Banana Rock slot from Play N Go is another game that seems to be contributing to the increasing trend of music themes in slots. We’ve seen a bunch of these types of games recently like Parrots Rock slot and while I think the theme works pretty well, I hope it doesn’t become overused too soon. This is definitely one of the better-looking ones though with a short animation at the beginning and good graphics with cool colours throughout.
Where Banana Rock slot really stands out though is it’s gameplay with some unusual and fun and potentially very rewarding features. These include respins, free spins and multipliers but I’ll explain how they work shortly. To play the game, all you need to do is spin the reels to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Jack, Queen, King or Ace (lowest value)
- Purple Ape
- Blue Ape
- Brown Ape
- Green Ape
- Yellow Ape (highest value)
Banana Rock Slot Bonuses and Features
There are also 2 Wild symbols in the game as well as these base symbols and each works a bit differently. Firstly, you have your regular Wild symbol which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Scatter symbol. Then you have the Rock N Rollin Wild symbol which plays a part in the following feature.
Rock N Rollin Re-spin. If you land 2 or more Rock N Rollin Wild symbols on the screen at any one time, shown as a monkey with golden glasses, you’ll be awarded a re-spin with these Wild symbols held in place. The farthest right Rock N Rollin Wild will move towards to the leftmost Wild, connecting with any other Rock N Rollin Wilds on the way. Throughout its path, it will leave Wild symbols to give you some extra wins hopefully. Because of this, you ideally want the farthest left and right symbols to be as far away from eachother as possible. They work in the same way as the regular Wild symbol.
Free Spins Bonus. If you land 2 of the Scatter symbols, shown as the Banana Rock logo, anywhere on the screen at the same time you’ll trigger the bonus and be awarded 10 free spins to start with. These Scatter symbols can only appear on reels 1 and 5. You can win an additional free spin by landing another Scatter symbols on these reels. Furthermore, if you manage to collect any of the band member symbols fully stacked on the reels you’ll be awarded a multiplier which will be applied to any remaining free spins. You can collect up to 5x multipliers for every band member.
Encore Spin. This kind of works as a follow on to the Free Spins Bonus, as once it has completed you will be given an Encore free spins. All the multipliers that you managed to collect during the Free Spins Bonus will be combined and applied to any wins that you manage to get from the Encore free spin. During the spin, only the band members can appear so your winnings will be higher, if there are any that is. This spin allows you to win up to 2500x your bet if you can collect 25x multipliers from the Free Spins Bonus.
Play N Go have created an interesting game with Banana Rock slot that has some fairly basic features but they work in a more unusual way than you typically see them. The respins bonus is a nice way of allowing you to get some extra Wild symbols but don’t expect much from this. The Free Spins Bonus is pretty good but again, won’t pay out too much on average and you shouldn’t expect to get too many additional free spins. However, if you do manage to get some good multipliers from it, the Encore spins can be very rewarding and I think this is a brilliant feature. Admittedly you do only get one spin which means you might end up with nothing even if you collect lots of multipliers, but that’s just how this slot works, it’s high risk. Overall, I think it’s a lot of fun with some pretty original gameplay and definitely worth checking out. Let us know down in the comments what you think.
