Banana Rock is an exciting online slot developed by Play ‘n GO in 2018, featuring a group of rocking apes creating some rad jungle music in their band. In this game, players get to tour with the band through the local bar scene, featuring re-spins, free spins, and sticky wilds.
The game designers and developers of Banana Rock spent extra time on its appearance, which shows off impressive graphics and great animations. The game features a few extra features that enhance both the gameplay and the slot’s overall appearance. The setting of a band of animals playing in the jungle has been done before, but this game really goes for it.
As the game is based around a band, it makes sense that the soundtrack plays a significant role. We’re treated to a rocking song that plays in the background all the time, sounding suitably energetic and upbeat to feel like a song by monkeys. It does pick up an extra notch during the free spins mode, and I would have liked to have that song play the entire time. Extra sound-effects include someone singing, guitar solos for wins and the audience cheering.
The game features multiple highlights, including:
Banana Rock uses a combination of original and standard symbols. The low-paying symbols are card letters created to look like neon letters, which fits the theme pretty well but doesn’t make sense in the jungle. The high-paying symbols are the different band members, each of them drawn in a cartoon style. They all have their own color and character, and their own separate art when they turn into stacked symbols.
The symbols in the game include:
Banana Rock offers various features, including:
During the base game, the re-spins feature is enabled quite often as the Wilds are pretty frequent. The re-spins feature is only activated when there are 2 Wilds on the screen. At that point, the right-most Wild moves towards the left-most one, leaving behind a Wild on every tile it passes.
Getting the free spins mode to activate requires getting a Scatter symbol on both reels 1 and 5. Once that happens, the game switches the playing field slightly, showing different colors at the top of each reel. Each color is obviously associated with a specific band member. If the right band member appears on the correct reel, it will become stacked, filling the entire reel.
This will also add a multiplier to the free spins mode, going up by 1x for every time a stacked symbol appears. Each band member can have a 5x multiplier, which means a total maximum of 25x your wins. However, in my experience, the game rarely grants even a single stacked symbol, and I’ve had times where the free spins mode didn’t grant one.
Banana Rock is a rocking slot that immerses players in a colorful and nonsensical setting while they bop their head to the beat. The game’s ambience is impressive, and people who enjoy a rather light-hearted setting will surely find what they are looking for here.
The high volatility of the game can be punishing, and even though wins aren’t very rare, they aren’t high enough to compensate for the losses. However, the game lets players pick a bet between $0.10 and $100 per spin and offers a maximum win of 2,500x your bet, which is nice but lower than most other slots with the same volatility.
Overall, I had a good time playing the game, mainly due to its graphics and mood. If you want to immerse yourself in a slot to pass the time, Banana Rock is an excellent choice. However, if you find the gameplay of a slot very important, other slots may be more suitable for you.
