Booming Bananas from Booming Games: Slot Review - you'll go ape for this game!
Jungle-themed slots are always a big hit with players as they offer you the chance to explore lush green forests with a few wild animals thrown in here and there, all the while offering you the opportunity to make your jungle trip worthwhile with a nice payout in return. Rising games developer Booming Games decided to base their latest slot release smack down in the middle of a colourful jungle but this is no ordinary jungle as it filled with a gang of crazy monkeys who have a penchant for wearing human clothes such as shades, hats, as well as a bit of jewellery!
Booming Bananas is a 3 reel slot game with 10 paylines that includes Free Spins, 2-Way Pay, Multiplier Wins and a Gamble feature.
The first feature to highlight is the Wild symbol and this is represented by an image of a smiling gorilla. Like standard Wild symbols, it substitutes for all other symbols except for the Scatter and Special symbols to help form winning combinations on the reels. The Wild symbol is also used to trigger the 2-Way Pay feature. Manage to land 3 Wild symbols anywhere on the reels and this feature will activate, enabling wins from both left to right as well as from right to left. This lasts for 10 Spins and rewards double winnings for matching symbols on active paylines. If you land 3 or more Wild symbols during 2-Way Pay Spins then you’ll be awarded a further 10 2-Way Pay Spins to really boost your chances of landing a big win on the reels.
As you play the game, keep a close eye on the Special Red 7 symbol. This symbol only appears on reel 2 and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. When this symbol is part of a winning combination then your winnings will be multiplied by seven!
The Scatter symbol is depicted by a grey and white circle with the words ‘Booming Bananas Scatter’ displayed inside of it. Land 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on reels and you will trigger the Free Spins Bonus game. In this feature, you will be given 10 Free Spins and it is possible to get 10 additional Free Spins by getting 3 or more Scatters during Free Spins.
The last feature to mention is the optional Gamble mode. This is triggered whenever you land a win on the reels and is a Double-Or-Nothing round where you have to pick between a red and a black banana. Guess correctly and your winnings will be doubled but make sure to choose wisely as if you guess incorrectly then you will lose all of your current winnings and be taken back to the main game.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The presentation of the game is fantastic as it is set deep inside a living jungle with the reels placed below a straw hut that is covered in bright pink lights, a bunch of bananas and strangely enough some red cloth. Symbols consist of a variety of colourful Monkeys, the number 7, and some Bar icons. The animations are decent as symbols enlarge and shine brightly whenever you form a win along the reels.
The music is atmospheric and full of loud tribal sounds. It suits the jungle theme of the game perfectly.

Our Verdict on Booming Bananas
Booming Games created this ape-tastic slot and it is a really fun game to play. Although the Jungle theme has been explored many times from many different software developers, somehow this game feels fresh and unique when you play it. Booming Bananas does not contain that many features but it is great that you win both ways thanks to 2-Way Pay and that you can also retrigger additional Free Spins. I found this game to be of Low variance so you'll be landing a nice payout from these cheeky monkeys in no time at all!
Swing your way to a huge win in Booming Bananas!
