Banana Town Review
There's no denying that Relax Gaming has been crushing it with a multitude of 8-bit slots such as Hellcatraz and Santa's Stack. Banana Town is the next slot to get the 8-bit treat with the characters resembling Donkey Kong.
This retro slot plays on 6-reels and uses the Scatter Pays mechanic to generate wins from at least 8 matching symbols in view anywhere on the grid. In addition to this, there are free spins and multipliers reaching up to x64.
The first thing that will catch your eye with this slot is the unique visuals of the 8-bit graphics. All the characters and the setting look deliberately 2D with bright colours all over the slot.
All of the monkeys resemble Donkey Kong but with a gangster twist making it more unique and exciting. On the reels, there are different monkey symbols as well as cute little bananas. One cool little attention to detail is the fact that players can click on the monkeys to animate them.
To match the visuals, there is an 8-bit inspired musical score playing throughout. It sounds like an old video game from the 1980s but fits in well with the visuals.
There isn't anything too complicated going on in this slot as wins are matched up through Scatter Pays and the main feature is the free spins round. Anyone can pick up and play this slot.
At the bottom of the screen, there is the spin button and the bet level. Non-UK players will find a bonus buy button on the left side allowing them to purchase the free spins round.
Like most Relax Gaming slots, the win potential is quite respectable in Banana Town. The RTP is a decent 96.12% and the overall volatility is high leading to larger wins but less often.
The maximum win for this slot is 10,000x the stake which can be achieved through the multipliers and during the free spins round. Whilst the maximum amount isn't anything earth-shattering, it's a good amount that will satisfy many slot players.
Banana Town is exactly what it sounds like. The design is funky but fun, whilst the gameplay is simple but provides some thrilling moments.
Of course, some players may be frustrated by the lack of features - but this slot isn't designed for them. Banana Town is for players who appreciate straightforward gameplay paired with a lighthearted theme.
