Banana Rock is a slot game I’ve played the most in November 2018 when it came out because it offers such an effortless slot playing experience, paired with an opportunity to get some big wins, especially during and after the free spins feature. There’s also a re-spin feature that adds even more fun and big wins, so this is a quality title by Play’n GO. Let’s go through its pros and cons.
Main game and paytable
The paytable consists of four card symbols which only pay 4x your bet for five-of-a-kind, and the main cast of five band members, who pay from 8x to 40x your bet for five-of-a-kind. These main symbols can appear stacked, which then increases the chance of getting multiple winning paylines. There are 10 paylines on this 5×3 board, and the minimum bet is $0.10 while the maximum is $100.
Graphics are very good, and this is one of better slots Play’n GO released recently when it comes to theme and graphics. This theme is all about a band of four apes that, of course, love bananas so they’re doing the banana rock. Each character is nicely detailed, and the game really looks impressive on all devices, desktop or mobile.
Scatters appear on reels 1 and 5 only, and you just need to land both at the same time and you’ll trigger a fun and rewarding game that gives you 10 free spins. Any time you land a Banana Rock symbol, you’ll get an additional free spin, so it’s likely you’ll end up playing 12 to 14 free spins.
Every time a member of the band appears on your reels fully stacked, it will increase the win multiplier for that particular symbol, it starts at x1 and can go up to x5. At the end of your free spins, all the multipliers you’ve won are combined, for a maximum of x25, and you get that win multiplier on a single spin in which only the band members can appear. This is called the Encore Spin, and will likely give you a big win. The maximum win is 2500x your bet.
There’s another feature in this game, and it gets triggered whenever you land two Rock ‘n’ Rollin’ Wilds on your board. When that happens, one Wild will travel to the other Wild, leaving a trail of Wilds, and then you’ll get your re-spin. Depending on your luck, you can get a huge number of Wilds. If you land five Wilds, you’ll get 40x your bet.
Banana Rock Slots RTP
Theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.00%, which is expected from modern slots and it isn’t bad but nothing spectacular either. This game has high variance and it can pay huge wins, so it’s a good combination and many players will feel this game can actually be beaten. You just need a little bit of luck with that Encore Spin.
Banana Rock is a game that won’t disappoint any player as it’s a well-rounded game that does everything right. The free spins feature is a treat, and so are the re-spins which can get you a huge win with lots of Wilds on your reels. There’s nothing not to like about Banana Rock so go play this game.
