The lead singer of the band is the yellow monkey sporting a bandana and is the most lucrative rewarding players with x40 of their stake for landing five on a pay line. The wild is represented by a disc and can substitute for all the other symbols to create winning combinations which pay in a similar way to the lead singer of the band. There is no denying that Banana Rock delivers in terms of features, the first of which is the Rock ‘n’ Rollin Re-Spin where the wilds move horizontally and vertically to create a trail of wilds aka the lead singer and only two are needed to activate the feature and the symbols that activated the feature are held in place whilst a free re-spin takes place. As the reels complete the re-spin the wild symbol that is situated on the furthest right position moves across the reels to the furthest left position and the wilds then connect to each other moving horizontally or vertically which can result in some truly amazing wins.
The scatter is represented by the Banana Rock logo and will land on the first and fifth reels, should it make an appearance on both reels at the same time, the free spins feature comes into play with ten free spins to get things underway. Players need to watch out for the scatter to land again as this gives players an additional free spin. Better still, players can also activate the Rock ‘n’ Rollin re-spin if they manage to land two or more of the Rock ‘n’ Wilds during the free spin. Players should also watch out for stacked symbols as these cover the whole of the reel and as players collect the individual band members they then move into there own meter. Each set of band members can add two – five multipliers to the amount awarded.
When the Free Spins feature ends the Encore Free Spin takes place which guarantees the player a win that contains just the band member symbols and can see maximum wins of up to x25. If anyone told me how much fun, you can have with a bunch of monkey musicians running riot I would never have believed them. This slot has an anarchic feel which is matched by the high volatility, but this is not surprising when you think it is possible to win up to x2,500 times the stake on every Encore Spin that benefits from the 25x multiplier. Personally, I think the design is superb and thanks to the re-spins, free spins and encore spin the slot delivers some really lively action. Whilst the theme is rather silly, players won’t go far wrong with this slot. Another slot I suggest you try is Shamrockers Eire to Rock from the developers at IGT as this also features popstars but they are in the form of leprechauns.
