How to Play

Get in the mood for some monkeying around. It’s a piece of cake to get started with this slot.

Start by choosing your Coin Value, which goes from $0.01 to $1. Then in Level choose the number of coins you want to bet per payline – you can choose from 1 to 10 coins. There are 20 paylines, which means that the smallest bet size is $0.20 per spin. Then just hit that Spin button. And when you like how things roll, then consider trying the Autoplay function where you can choose to let the game spin automatically for 10, 25 or more spins.

When you win, it’s the number of coins as per the paytable multiplied by the Level of your bet. So in general, we recommend that you bet with a higher level! The Max Bet button will set your Level to the highest possible without changing your coin value. Your coin value directly determines how your payout translates your wins to real cash, so the higher the value, the more your coins mean in NZD.

Now, onto the symbols in Go Bananas. It starts with the many different Wilds:

  • Wild Banana: A basic wild that can substitute for any other symbol to form a payline.
  • Wild Gorilla (Blue Monkey): Transformative Wild
  • Wild Orangutan (Orange Monkey): Transformative Wild
  • Wild Baboon: Transformative Wild
  • Wild Langur (White Monkey): Transformative Wild
  • Wild Tarsier (Small, Brown Monkey): Transformative Wild

More details about Transformative Wilds and how they multiply across the reels in the Special Features section!

High Value symbols

  • Red Ruby
  • Tiki
  • Cash
  • Drums
  • Banana Split

Lower value symbols includes various fruits like oranges, coconuts, and pineapples.

Graphics and Sounds

As with all NetEnt pokies, Go Bananas is a smooth production. The colourful and juicy graphics are 3D and wild monkeys regularly take over the screen to transform symbols into wilds. Wins pop out and are celebrated properly. It’s all set against a backdrop of birds chirping in the jungle and it’s the perfect mix between crazy spinning and chilled out entertainment.


The base jackpot in Go Bananas isn’t very high – 5 Red Ruby symbols will only get you 700 coins. Go Bananas is more about frequent but smaller wins. To maximise your win, increase your bet level to what you can afford. However, with a bit of extra luck you might have some extra paylines and take away the maximum win of 140,000 coins

Special Features

Go Bananas is all about the Wild Monkeys that transform multiple regular symbols into Wilds according to different patterns to form more winning paylines.

Wild Gorilla

A big blue monkey will turn 5 symbols into wilds that will cover the center of the screen

Wild Orangutan

The orange monkey will change 4 symbols into wilds. The 4 wilds will be in a 2×2 grid.

Wild Baboon

This angry primate will make a vertical column of 3 wilds.

Wild Langur

A white hairy monkey that will make a horizontal row of 3 wilds

Wild Tariser

A small cheeky thing that almost looks like a squirrel, the Wild Tarsier will give you 2 wilds that are paired together either vertically or horizontally.


Go Bananas is a playful and colourful pokie from NetEnt. It’s a simple game that has no bonus features, but the many expanding wild monkeys makes this game a worthwhile venture. The jackpot isn’t very high, but with so many wilds, it’s much easier to hit a winning payline and to pick up lots of smaller wins.  Definitely worth some spins!
