Our Verdict:

The Banana Odyssey slot game is made by the creator of Cash of Kingdoms and Zombie Hoard - Slingshot Studios - and it's been exclusively released through Microgaming.

With big prizes up for grabs, expanding wilds, sticky wilds, free spins, and re-spins, Banana Odyssey is sure to get your tail in a spin.

The cartoonlike graphics and upbeat techno music deliver excellent audio-visual effects.

And, while the Banana Odyssey slot uses just 10 paylines, it allows you to create winning combos from both left-to-right and right-to-left.

Design:

The background that's used in Banana Odyssey offers you a fascinating view of deep space. As well as the realistic images of stars and distant planets which move towards you as the spaceship continues on its journey towards the Banana Planet, there are sci-fi inspired symbols which can be used to form winning combinations.

There are laser guns, jars of peanuts, playing card symbols (J, Q, K, and A), the Banana Planet, and the two chimps - Buck and Chip.
5 reels, 10 paylines, and 3 rows of symbols form the main playing area in the Banana Odyssey slot game, and after you've chosen a suitable stake size, all you need to do is click the Spin button on the right.

If you'd prefer not to have to keep clicking or tapping the Spin button, you can use the Auto-Play option to take a set number of spins automatically.

As wins can be formed both ways across the screen, you're rewarded each time that three matching symbols land on adjacent reels starting from Reel 1 or from Reel 5.

Wild Symbol:

With Banana Odyssey, you get additional chances to create wins through the wild symbol which is represented by the image of the planet. Wilds can only land on the second, third, and fourth reels.

Bonus Features:

The wild symbol in the Banana Odyssey slot is particularly valuable as it becomes an Expanding Wild whenever it appears on reels 2, 3 or 4.

Expanding wilds fill all three positions on the reel, making it easier to create wins.

However, the excitement doesn't end there because once the wild symbol has expanded, you receive a free re-spin. Any additional wilds that appear following the re-spin are also held in place while a new re-spin occurs.

Three or more scatter symbols grant you entry to the Free Games feature where you get to take 10 free spins. This time, any Expanding Wild symbols stay on the screen for the duration of the bonus round.
