About Booming Bananas
Booming Bananas (2017) is a partly banana-themed and partly primate-themed video slot made by Booming Games; it also operates the other banana-inspired slot named Crazy Bananas (March 2019), and has yet another monkey-inspired slot called Cheeky Monkeys (February 2019). Even then Booming Bananas belongs to the Booming line that also includes Booming Seven (November 2015), Booming Seven Deluxe (December 2016), Booming Bars (November 2017), and Booming Gold (January 2016).
Apart from acknowledging its developer, the naming of the game “Booming Bananas” was partially influenced by the banana symbolism. There are no many possible combinations like in other video slots from Booming Games; instead, the players can only seek three matching symbols.
Booming Bananas Game Characteristics
Booming Bananas has a 3X3 grid that accommodates ten adjustable pay lines and eight symbols. There are four types of Booming Bananas symbols: monkeys, BARs, a banana, and the brand name. There are three special symbols: a substituting “Wild” gorilla’s face in a purple frame; a golden “X7” multiplier banana in a golden frame; and a round “Booming Games” brand name (Scatter).
Booming Bananas has four special features as showed on the loading page: the 2-Way Pay feature, the free spins-offering “Booming Games” logo, the winnings multiplier, and the gamble feature.
The five Booming Bananas ordinary symbols are: a bespectacled orangutan in a gem-encased red frame; a youthful orangutan with bling-bling and flashing the “V” sign, in a green frame; a purple triple BAR, a blue double BAR, and a green single BAR.
Booming Bananas has these “Bet per Line” options (also for a single pay line): $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $30.00, and $50.00. The minimum bet is $0.01. Selecting five pay lines offers average bet sizes: $0.05, $0.10, $0.15, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $1.50, $2.50, $5.00, $10.00, $15.00, $25.00, $50.00, $100.00, $150.00, and $250.00. Associated with selecting all the 10 pay lines, the highest bet range is: $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $30.00, $50.00, $100.00, $200.00, $300.00, and $500.00 (the maximum total bet).
Based on the $500.00 maximum bet, the Booming Bananas payouts for three matching symbols are similar to those in Booming Seven Deluxe. The “Wild” monkey pays $3850.00; the “Booming Games” logo pays $3500.00; the bespectacled monkey offers $1250.00; the green monkey with bling pays $1000.00; the purple triple BARs pay $350.00; the blue BARs pay $250.00; and the single BAR pays $150.00.
Three “Booming Games” symbols offer ten free spins, whereby three “Wild” symbols can appear to trigger the 2-Way Way feature that makes the hitherto one-way pay lines start paying right to left and vice versa. Every three-of-a-kind winning combination activates the “Gamble” feature at the bottom right, where the players predict whether an upcoming symbol is a red banana or a silver banana. The non-progressive jackpot of Booming Bananas is $1000000.00.
Apart from the unique grid, the good Booming Bananas software conforms to the maker’s other software designs. The sounds are interesting, ranging from the rhythmic instrumentals to the animal sounds like the roaring gorilla. The graphics are appealing, including the animated animal caricatures and the colorful see-through grid showing a rainforest in the background.
