Cool Bananas is an online slot game brought to you by software manufacturer NextGen Gaming. The theme is a funny one, and the graphics are of a matching comical cartoon style. The main character is Mighty Monkey, who is something of a chiller, a way more relaxed version of King Kong, and naturally, the backdrop of tall skyscrapers are being climbed by said primate. There is no real soundtrack in the game unless you land a winning combination of symbols, then you get to hear something. Aside from that, the reels feature the traditional lower value playing card icons, and alongside them you will see an unusual mix of symbols, including a blonde woman, sunglasses, a banana split, more buildings and of course the banana.
Moving onto the game’s layout, you will find it features a regular grid of 5 reels and 3 rows. The total number of available paylines is 25 but you can regulate them to your liking if you’d rather play with less. Thus, you can decrease them to the minimum of just 1 active payline, which affects the betting range accordingly. Stakes in this game span from a minimum of only 1p per single spin up to £250 per spin.
Mighty Monkey is the game’s most lucrative symbol, offering payouts of up to a whopping 5,000 coins, but more importantly it’s also the Wild symbol here. Therefore, it will substitute for any of the regular symbols, that way it can boost your winnings by helping complete winning sequences. You can also expect to see the Wild in just about any position, anywhere on the reels. However, there is one symbol that it will not be able to substitute for and that is the game’s Scatter.
It’s virtually all about the Freespins feature in Cool Bananas, so keep your eyes open for the Banana Scatter symbol. Like the Wild, it can land anywhere on the reels during gameplay, but in order to activate the one bonus round this game has in store, you will need to land at least 3 Scatters at the same time. This will award you a number of free spins corresponding to the number of triggering Scatters.
Each Scatter awards you a total of 8 free spins, hence, you can count on a minimum of 24 free spins for 3 Scatters. From then on, you can get 32 or up to a total of 40 free spins. What’s more, all prizes during the Freespins feature are subject to a 2x multiplier and you also get the opportunity to receive even more free spins. Yes, you can retrigger the bonus round by landing another 3 or more Scatter symbols simultaneously.
Cool Bananas is fairly simplistic, both in terms of its visuals and its structure. The game basically revolves around the free spins, but it is an impressive feature, too. You have the possibility of potentially benefiting from a staggering 80 free spins, and the multiplier makes them especially lucrative as does the medium to high variance of this game.
