Banana Odyssey — Microgaming Launches New Slot

Microgaming has joined forces with Sling Shot Studios to release an interesting new slot called Banana Odyssey. It is essentially a space exploration game, but it doesn’t take itself very seriously, mainly because the heroes of the game are monkeys in space suits who are roaming space, probably chasing bananas. Your job is to spin the reels and help these monkeys in their mission that could bring you hefty rewards as well.

The slot developer has always been innovative when it comes to topics for its slots, so putting monkeys in space and making a slot was yet another brilliant idea of theirs. It is this innovative approach to making slots that makes Microgaming one of the leaders in the industry, especially when it comes to online video slots.

The game itself was showcased during the London iGaming conference earlier this year, and many immediately labeled it as one of the flagship titles for this year that are made by Microgaming. People were not wrong, as this game has some really great animations and captivating gameplay.

Features Of The Game

Apart from the outstanding background which depicts space travel, players can also enjoy amazing symbols and reel animations, as well as great bonus features that can bring them various lucrative prizes.

One thing you should really pay attention to is the music in this game which perfectly fits the slot. The music is funky, but there is some space feeling to it that makes you want to spin the slots more.

Some of the symbols you should pay attention to are the Wild and the Scatter. The Wild symbol is represented by a planet, and it will substitute every other symbol on the reels except for the scatter. It appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. They are also expanding wilds so whenever you land them, they will expand in order to form a Wild Reel.

Moreover, as soon as they expand on the reel, they will freeze the reel and give you a respin with the remaining reels spinning again, which is a great possibility to win better prizes. In fact, the respin feature will continue as long as new wilds land! Moreover, all wilds that land and expand on the entire reel will remain that way throughout free spins.

When it comes to scatters, they appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 as well and if you manage to land three of them, you will trigger 10 free spins.

The game has 10 lines, and all wins pay left to right except for the scatter symbols, which pay any. The number of paylines is fixed, meaning you won’t be able to change how much bet lines you want to include in your spins.


What’s really interesting in this game is that you can set win and loss limits, which is something that is not that present in online slots, but should definitely become a part of every casino game. Moreover, there is a standard autoplay option where you can set a number of spins that you want to be executed automatically. The total bet amount starts at 0.10 and can go up to 400.00.

Moreover, you also get to choose coins that you want to bet per line (1-20) as well as the coin size (0.01-2.00).

To sum up, if you feel like traveling to space with monkeys, you should definitely check out Banana Odyssey and enjoy spinning the interstellar reels of the game. Join the two monkeys and use their laser guns as you eat nuts from their special jar, chasing bananas all over the cosmos.
