The Banana Odyssey slots game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the slots house edge information of all their games at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos). As such we can say that the House Edge of Banana Odyssey is 3.69%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.
Banana Odyssey is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game uses traditional paylines, with 10 in total playing from left to right and right to left.
Wild – The “Earth” is the Wild symbol, which will substitute for all other symbols other than Scatters. Wild symbols only appear on 2, 3 and 4 and every Wild that lands will expand to form a Wild reel and will award a re-spin.
Scatter – The Free Spins symbol is also a Scatter, meaning 3 of them anywhere on the reels will pay out and will trigger the feature. Scatter symbols are only available on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Wild Re-Spins – Any Wilds that land will fill the reel, which will stick in place whilst all the other reels re-spin. If you land another Wild the process will repeat and so on…
Free Spins – If you trigger the feature you will be awarded 10 Free Spins. Any Wilds that land during the feature will stick in place for the duration of the Free Spins.
First of all, I love how this slot looks. Whilst the space background is fairly basic the symbols are all very well designed in a cartoon style that adds a light-hearted tone to the reels. I would have liked a bit more from the features, as the Free Spins, Respins and expanding Wilds are crying out for a bonus game of some sort. Something I was surprised by is the distinct lack of Bananas in a slot that has the word in the title, but then it really would be a case of picking nits if I twisted my knickers over it. The house edge is good, offering what we would consider to be good value for money.
