The New Banana Odyssey Slot Added to Microgaming's Offering

Travel Across Galaxy and Find Hidden Treasures

The main protagonists of this fresh release are two astro chimps Buck and Chip, who’ll join players on an exciting intergalactic mission to the Banana Planet, whose immense riches are just waiting to be discovered. The game features a standard five-reel three-row layout with 10 paylines on offer.

In addition to its nice visuals, Banana Odyssey has plenty of features on offer which can not only add to the excitement, but can also help punters scoop handsome prizes. Players can look forward to such exciting features as free spins, expanding Wilds and re-spins, with the game paying out both ways. All in all, this space-themed slot promises plenty of action and chances to win big.

Players will join Buck and Chip as they journey across the galaxy to rich the Banana Planet and grab as much of its riches as possible. Whenever the Wild symbols find its place on one of the three middle reels (2,3 and 4), it will expand to cover the entire reels. This will activate the game’s Cosmic Re-spin features, locking the expanded Wild in its position, with the remaining reels re-spinning. Any extra Wild landing during this re-spin can add more re-spins to the player’s count, significantly improving the win potential.

And as the mission progresses, the Free Spins round will further enhance the gaming experience. To turn this feature on, players will need to land three Scatter symbols on the three middle reels. Apart from getting 10 free spins, players will also benefit from the locked expanding Wilds making its way to the Free Spins, which can lead to out of this world payouts!
