This Cool Bananas slot feels old school, but simple features and wins of up to 21,840 times your bet will have you climbing buildings.
NextGen have been creating some pretty cool games lately, with the likes of Samurai Split and Renegades slot surprising us at every turn.
And then comes this Cool Bananas mobile game, which feels old-school, but not in a good way… at least at first.
The theme feels fun enough – imagine King Kong except if he wore Hawaiian shirts and decided to take a holiday in the city. But the graphics and animations feel a decade old.
It’s only once you start playing that you start to see the appeal.
Mostly thanks to a nice balance of wins keeping you afloat, and occasionally, go a little bananas.
A five of a kind of the monkey wilds will give you a sweet 5,000 times your bet, whilst you can win as much as 10,000 times your bet in the base game alone.
That literally doubles during the free spin slot games, but is still more than you’ll find in higher variance games like even Twin Spin.
The fact that you get 8 free spins for every single scatter you find across the five reels of this Cool Bananas 5 reel slot is a big draw and what saves this casino game from total obscurity.
Because not only is the minimum of free spin bonus games you get here a generous 24 rounds, but these all come with a 2x multiplier on the win.
Giving you that potential 21,840 times your bet we mentioned earlier.
And unfortunately that’s what this is all about, because it can be hard to look past the slot’s theme, even with a minimum bet of 0.25 a spin.
That said, fans of video slots like Agent Jane Blonde by Microgaming or even Mad Mad Monkey will find this NextGen slot game impossible to resist.
