Banana Odyssey is what you get when Planet of the Apes meets Star Wars. This space-themed video slot features a group of space marauding apes (Astrochimps) seeking for the control of the banana rich Planet Banana. You get rewarded with a Free Spins bonus feature when you hit three of the Scatter icons on specific reels in this game. To learn how you can activate this bonus feature, keep reading through this slot review.
Banana Odyssey In Search Of Planet Banana
In Banana Odyssey you have only 10 active line bets played on a 5x3 reel set. To begin spinning this reel set, you will need to place your respective bets. Fortunately, low-rollers are accommodated in this slot, as the minimum wager per spin is a miserly £0.10.
For those wishing to place much higher bets, the maximum wager per spin allowed is pegged at £400. In the backdrop of this game, you have a view of the milky way. The reel set features symbols such as; playing cards (J, Q, K and A), a jar of Astro Nuts, a banana blaster weapon and a couple of Astrochimps (Chip and Buck).
These Astrochimps will award you multipliers of 1.2x, 3x and 10x your wagered sum, if you land 3, 4 and 5 of the same Astrochimp on an active line bet. What's so exciting about this slot is that players can “win both ways”. Planet Banana represents the Wild icon in this game and this symbol shows up only on the three central reels (i.e. 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels). This Wild is known to substitute every symbol apart from the free spins Scatter icon.
The Planet Banana Expanding Wild And Respin Feature
There is a feature involving the Planet Banana Wild symbol. This is an expanding wild feature that comes alive whenever a Wild shows up on the central reels. As a Wild pops up on any of the central reels, that entire reel will be turned completely Wild.
You then get a respin while the Wild reel is in full effect to help you hit combo wins. If another Planet Banana Wild appears on any of the central reels during the re-spin, you will be rewarded with yet another respin (up to three respins) with the reel acting Wild during the respins.
Banana Odyssey Free Spins
Banana Odyssey also features a free spins bonus. To activate this feature, you will have to hit three of the Scatter icon on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel at the same time. You will receive a total of 10 free spins for your effort. However, if a Planet Banana Wild symbol hits the reels during the free spins, the reel on which the Wild shows up will turn completely Wild (similar to the Expanding Wild feature). Note that the free spins bonus cannot be reactivated during the round.
To Sum Up
Microgaming is the software behind the creation of Banana Odyssey. This game will also reward you with a 400x stake multiplier if you are able to occupy the entire reels with either of the Astrochimps symbols (i.e. Chip or Buck).
