slot review (CT Gaming)
Banana Party is a fruits slot published by CT Gaming. It is set on 5 x 3 grid with 25 paylines and bet spread ranging from 5 cents to 5 Euro/Dollar, which gives a nice spread of 100 times that is not very often nowadays. There are only six different fruit symbols in play plus Scatter and Wilds, which ensures wins are not hard to get. On top of that, symbols are stacked so it is not a rare sight to collect 5 of a kind of any type. Graphics are pretty good while sounds are basic but pleasant and complimentary to the fruits theme. Gameplay is quite fast and can even be quickened by pressing the spin button/space bar twice.
Not counting the Wilds, Sevens and Scatters (in the form of Disco ball) pay the most. Banana symbols serve as Wilds and they do appear on all five reels which means you can collect a full screen of Bananas for a nice Jackpot. Unfortunately I did not manage to collect that yet, but Wilds are coming out quite often and will almost certainly be included in any fruit combination. Like in this video that was almost full screen of Wilds and Lemons. As usual, you need to collect at least three of the same on an active payline for a win.
After every winning spin, there is an option to double up or even go for quadrupling of the win. This is the option I have so far only seen on CT Gaming games and it is the best bet you can make in the Casino. Simply, there is no house advantage included here. For 50-50 chance you will win double the amount, while for 25% chance you will have it quadrupled. Unfortunately, not to take the advantage too much, doubling up is enabled only up to the certain amount. You can even half the winnings and risk doubling only the half which is great option when you have no inspiration which colour or card suit could come up next.
Banana Party is the essential fruits game that is fun to play. Although it is volatile, it will rarely take you down to the bottom directly. For most of the sessions you can get ahead of your starting money, especially if using the double up feature often. Overall, a very good representative of the fruits genre which are easy to understand and features are very much appreciated by the novice and core players as well. Check out another nearly full screen of plums this time in this video!
