Banana Town is a retro-themed slot that wouldn’t be out of place in an eighties arcade. However, the simple graphics add to the games appeal.
With an exciting bonus round and payouts of up to 10,000 x, it’s a slot that has attracted some attention since being launched by Relax Gaming midway through 2022.
Banana Town features a 6×5 grid with falling symbols rather than standard spinning reels. Spins in which 8 or more feature the same symbol payout with the more matching symbols paying out bigger wins.
Along with the 8-bit style graphics, the music is also very retro and those who grew up playing Sega Master Systems, Nintendo’s or Atari’s will certainly appreciate the game more.
With each spin, symbols fall from the top into each of the 30 blocks. Should there be 8 or more of a matching symbol, a win is paid and those symbols are removed in way for new ones which can lead to additional wins.
Each time that a win is awarded, a multiplier is awarded to the winning symbol. Each symbol begins with a x1 multiplier and is doubled with each win featuring that symbol. For example, a win with 8 or more yellow bananas will be paid at x1 the winnings. However, if another set of yellow bananas land, it will be paid at x2 the winnings, then x4, x8, all the way up to the max multiplier of x64.
The Banana Town bonus feature is a free spins round which is triggered by landing 3 or more bonus symbols during a spin.
Three symbols award 8 free spins with 1 additional spin added for each extra bonus symbol. Bonus symbols can also land during the free spins round and will again award 1 additional spin.
When the free spin round starts, any multipliers that have been built up during regular gameplay will remain. Unlike in the base game, multipliers remain with every spin in the bonus round which allows the player to build up big multipliers for the different symbols.
The aim is to build the multiplier of the top paying symbols up to as close to the max of x64 as possible so that if 8 or more of those symbols land in a spin, the win is multiplied.
