Banana Rock Slot Review – Play’n Go
With another year coming to an end already I have been looking back at older releases throughout 2020. Reviewing some underrated and forgotten releases by well-known studios within the casino industry. Today we look back to 2018 to learn about an underrated Play’n Go slot release. This slot is titled ‘Banana Rock’, originally released on 27th November 2018.
This slot has a band theme, which is a common occurrence from the studio with existing bands. Instead, Play’n Go created their own band with monkey characters and bright neon colours. The slot background shows tall speakers on either side and plants surrounding. The real detail can be seen within the reel set symbols, particularly the band member’s premiums. Overall, I love these slots’ visual aspects and think they have some unique qualities.
Banana Rock has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 10 set pay lines. This slot is medium variance with a set RTP of 96.6% and max win capped at 2,500x. You can bet from £0.10 – £100.
Banana Rock Slot Review Pay Table & Symbols
There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by neon light J, Q, K, and A. There are also 5 high paying symbols, represented by the monkey bandmates which all have different colored backgrounds and are playing various instruments. The highest paying symbol is the yellow monkey and pays 40x for 5 on a pay line. There is also the wild symbol which also pays 40x over all 5 reels and a scatter symbol for the free spins. Wilds substitute for all symbols except scatters.
Banana Rock Slot Review Features
To trigger this feature, you need to land 2 or more Rock’ N ‘Rollin wild symbols on any reels, the wilds which activate the feature stay in position for the duration of this. When the reels are spinning the wild symbol closest to the right will move horizontally and vertically to the symbol most to the left while leaving a trail of wilds. This feature can create some big wins as of all the wilds left in the trail.
To activate the Free Spins you need to land two scatters but on reels 1 and 5, this will grant a guaranteed win in the encore spin that happens after the free spins end. You are awarded ten free spins and are given 1 extra for each scatters that lands during these free spins.
During spins, you can collect the band members. You collect these by landing a stacked symbol (which covers the whole reel) of one of the band members. You fill up the member’s meter when you collect these, the first collection of the members is at x2 multiplier, and +1 multiplier adds for every further collection with a max of 5x per member. The respin feature is also active during these spins. It sounds confusing, but it is easier to understand visually on the slot, it just a simple collection mechanic saw a lot of NetEnt slots.
After your Free Spins have finished the encore spin activates, this spin is a guaranteed win that only has the band member’s symbols shown on reels. The end multipliers on all band members are added together with a max of 25x, this multiplier adds to the win of the whole spin. This extra spin can help top up your bonus winnings nicely.
Overall, I think this slot has great character and a unique theme on offer. Along with many different features and a max win of 2,500x for a medium variance. Be sure to try out the slot for yourself if you haven’t already. Also, be sure to check out our exclusive casino offers.
