As human beings, we're somewhat fascinated with different types of monkeys and primates because we are so closely related genetically. This has led to everything from gorillas to chimps being used in different types of media like books, television shows, movies and more. The Booming Bananas slot by Booming Games uses the same kind of theme, and you'll find yourself out in the middle of a beautiful jungle with a handful of helpful monkeys who will help you to get bigger and better wins.
Format and Layout
Many players have a problem with three-reel slots because they don't provide enough action, but that won't be the case here because this game is definitely the exception. While it does have three reels and three rows of symbols, it also has 10 paylines, which is up there with a lot of very popular video slots. You'll always bet one coin on each of the 10 paylines, and those coins can range from $0.01 to $50 each. The result is a set of bet sizes that starts at $0.10 per turn and that goes all the way up to the dizzy heights of $500 per spin, and it's clear that they have given players a particularly wide range of bet sizes to pick from.
We want to point out two things here as well. First, all wins in this game are based on a multiple of your entire bet size instead of the wager per payline. Second, you have the option to play with fewer than 10 paylines, but we strongly recommend against it because it will drop your payout rate and increase the house advantage.
Wild Symbols and Two-Way Pay
You'll see a symbol on all three reels that has a purple diamond in the middle of it and a monkey looking out of it straight at you. That is the wild symbol, and it substitutes for everything in this game except for the scatter symbols. Three of a kind is worth solid 7.7x win, but the real value from this symbol comes from all of the extra winning combinations that you'll get by using it as a wild. With only nine symbols showing at any given time, just one or two wilds is enough to give you additional payouts that you wouldn't have otherwise received.
If you get three wilds on the screen at once, you'll activate the Two-Way Pay feature. When this feature activates, the following 10 spins at the same betting level will be given a bonus where you can win on all 10 paylines in both directions. This essentially doubles your wins for three-of-a-kind combinations since they are counted in both ways.
Wild Multiplier Symbol
There's a special wild that appears on the second reel sometimes as well, and it has a giant 7 on it. While it acts as a normal wild symbol in terms of helping you to get extra prizes and not substituting for the scatter, it also acts as a huge 7x multiplier. When you make a winning combination that includes this 7x wild, you will be given a prize worth seven times the normal value for that payout. That's a huge value waiting to happen, and what's even cooler about it is that it can be included as a part of multiple wins on the same spin.
Free Spins Bonus Round
The Booming Bananas logo symbol is the scatter, and it has two things about it that you'll want to pay attention to. First off, you'll win a 7x payout when three of them show up anywhere on the game's reels, even if they don't line up on a given payline. That means you have 27 ways to win with this particular symbol. Second, when you get all three on the reels at the same time, you'll be rewarded with a set of free spins. Players get 10 free spins to start with, and you can re-trigger the feature to add another 10 free spins to that total.
Important Winning Combinations
The monkey in the red box pays 2.5x for three of a kind, and three of the younger monkey in the green box earns you 2x. The purple triple-bar symbol is worth 0.7x for three. The blue double-bar earns 0.50, and the green triple-bar will pay out 0.30x. Remember that all of these pays can be multiplied by a factor of seven with the wild multiplier, and they can be doubled on top of that for another 2x multiplier with the Two-Way Pay feature.
Booming Bananas is an interesting name for this game since no bananas really appear on the reels all that much outside of the game logo, but it's an interesting take on an older style of game. Booming Games did a solid job with the graphics in this slot, and they've added an interesting mix of features that gives players quite a bit of action. It won't be everyone's favorite slot, but there are certainly players to whom this game will appeal.
