The Banana Odyssey mobile slot will see a couple of fearless chimps head onto the great unknown of space and ask you one simple question: will you be that third chimp?
You can’t help but be charmed by these space apes, as they fly into the depth of space with some monkey nuts, a laser gun, and some Ace to 10 symbols to play poker with on those long boring days.
With some great graphics and beautiful sounds, you even get movement with every spin as the stars move behind you as if you are gently floating through the emptiness of the universe, heading for brand new worlds.
And it will be brand new worlds you’ll be wanting to find, as the world is the wild symbol, and that’s the best symbol of the lot.
It may start sounding a little bit like the iconic Starburst video slot from NetEnt, and you wouldn’t be totally wrong.
But Slingshot studios, by Microgaming, have done something a little bit different from usual. For one, you only get expanding wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4, not all the reels. We know that sounds like a bad thing, but keep reading, it gets better.
And then yes you get a respin of the reels to try and capture more expanding wilds, much like Starburst. And symbols pay from left to right and right to left, giving you twice the chance of getting wins.
Mostly you do, you get so many little wins its great fun; these chimps certainly know how to have a good time in space.
So how is it different from Starburst? Well, for the one you get Banana Odyssey slot free spins, which Starburst doesn’t have.
And those bonus games are wicked fun because the expanded wild symbols will stay sticky on screen for the 10 free spins. Mostly you might only get one wild reel, two if you’re lucky.
But if you get three, that’s when magic happens and where you may get 400 times your bet (or close) spin, after spin. You may not, you probably won’t.
But that’s ok. Low variance slot is fantastic for beginners who want a little bit of an adventure but aren’t quite ready to jump into high variance games such as the Wild Turkey slot machine by Netent or even the Zombie Hoard slot also by Slingshot.

Pay Both Ways Reels: The symbols will pay from left to right and from right to left.
Expanding Wilds with Respins: Every wild that land (the planet) will expand to form a wild reel. Wilds only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and when it expands it will create a free re-spins of the other reels.
You'll then get another re-spin if you land another wild, and so on, until no more wilds will land.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 Free Spin scatter symbols will trigger 10 free spins. Any wilds that expand will be held into place for the duration of the bonus games.
We had great fun playing on this Banana Odyssey slot machine on mobile and online, but it doesn't have huge wins.
We particularly like how they turn the usual pay both way mechanics into something a little bit different, but still keep that high energy we love.
But as a fun low variance game, there's nothing wrong with this Slingshot slot by Microgaming and you'll have a real out of this world trip with all those expanding wilds everywhere.
Banana Odyssey is a 5x3 slot machine with 10 paylines that pay from left to right and right to left, with expanding wilds, re-spins, scatters and free spins with sticky wilds.
