Designed and powered by Simbat, Crazy Bananas is a video slot game that takes nothing very seriously.
Packed with humour, plenty of ways to win big and straightforward gameplay, Crazy Bananas will help players begin stacking up some new prizes and have entertaining fun spinning the reels.
The entire backdrop is encased in a dense layer of vegetation, with the reels protruding out of the tree right in the centre of the screen. The multiple command buttons in the bottom part of the screen are shaped like pineapples to compliment the tropical fruit theme.
Crazy Bananas is packed with fruit-shaped characters and absurd humour that make Crazy Bananas stand out on from the market.
The game matrix contains five reels, and nine paylines in total if players wish to play this many. When specific symbol combinations fall onto activated paylines, players will activate cash prizes that will be transferred automatically as they play. The pineapple command buttons under the reels will let players select a bet and the number of paylines they wish to play.
By betting higher, and with more symbols landing on the reels, players will unlock more substantial rewards during the base gameplay. Players get to select both the coin value and the number of coins they wish to play when the reels turn. Should players want to speed up the process of spinning, then hitting the auto spin mode is the way to go. Auto spin allows players to turn the reels for a determinate number of times at a chosen bet stake.
The different reel icons of Crazy Bananas will be trigger according to the size of a player's initial bet. Players can bet either one, two or three credits per turn.
With one credit in play, players can only access the most essential icons that are the lemons, cherries and bar signs, that come in either singles, doubles and triples. Players should note that the bar signs can be mixed and are still valid while forming a winning combination. The maximum prize for these icons will be three-hundred credits.
With two credits in play, players can activate more exciting prizes. The two banana character icons come into play, and they can also be mixed with other symbols to form a winning combination. The banana symbol wearing sunglasses is the most valuable of the game, activating wins in the region of 7,500 credits at once!
Crazy Bananas is precisely as it's namesake, crazy. For a slot game, this odd game mixes a modern setup with classic, retro-style credit-based rules and adding big bonus wins on the top.
The lack of wilds and scatters is a bit of a disappointment, as those icons would have added even more entertainment to the gameplay. That being said, the current gameplay of Crazy Bananas will still keep players engaged for many spins. The best way to win big and to win fast remains to play with a minimum three credits at every spin and hope for as many banana symbols to fall on the reels.
