According to the creators, astronaut primates Buck and Chip depart for conquering space in order to become rich; they are ready to help players with it too.
Gaming process takes place on the field with 5 reels and 3 rows. The small number of rows determines the minimum stake of 10 cents. The maximum stake of 200 USD is available for those who risk large sums.
There are only 8 symbols in the game, 4 of which are cards’, which are less valuable, 2 are average and 2 more are highly paid. Obviously, the latters are the main game characters. The scatter symbol with the inscription «Free Spins» gives hope for the bonus game to start. Wilds with the image of Banana planet help to form winning combinations.
The main and only bonus feature in regular rounds is respins, triggered when wilds appear on one of the 3 middle reels. Before a respin, the wild expands into the entire reel and it is getting fixed. A combination with 3 wild reels can potentially turn out. A winning size will significantly depend on symbols that appear on the side reels.
Winning combinations are both ways. If not taking into account the bonus round with free spins, the slot is very similar to another very popular slot by a rival.
The free spins bonus round has an interesting feature, triggered with the appearance of 4 scatters in the first 4 reels.
When using 10 free spins, the wilds not only expand into the entire reel, but also remain on the field until the end of the bonus game. Obviously, there are no respins that ordinary rounds have.
You can expect to win a large sum of money only if the wilds fill the reels at the very beginning of the bonus game.
Microgaming has fixed its profit in the Banana Odyssey game at 3.69% of each users’ stake.
