Cool Bananas is a NextGen Gaming powered slot with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Playable from 25p to £250 a spin on all devices, this monkey themed game benefits from a Free Games feature where you can play with up to 80 free spins with all wins doubled.

Visually, Cool Bananas is rather simple – with cartoon style graphics, you will see a city landscape in the backdrop. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards, sunglasses, desserts, city buildings and a female character.

The Mighty Monkey is the wild symbol and rewards you with 10,100, 1,000 or 5,000 times your stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline – it also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. That scatter is the banana with 2, 3, 4 or 5 in view rewarding you with 1, 5, 20 or 100 times your stake.

When you get 3 or more scattered bananas, you will trigger the Free Games feature – you will receive 8 free spins for each banana scatter that triggered the feature meaning you will get 24, 32 or 40 free spins (for 3, 4 or 5 scatters). Once in the feature, all wins are subject to a 2x multiplier meaning all wins are doubled – you can also retrigger the feature giving you up to 80 free spins in total.

Cool Bananas is simple in terms of appearance and gameplay – the Free Games feature can be rewarding due to the double wins and up to 80 free spins. Saying that, it lacks anything innovative or unique – however, it’s a medium to high variance offering with maximum wins of 21,840 times your stake on each free spin (and 10,920 times your stake on each base game spin). If monkeys are your thing, I highly recommend NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes which is just superb.
