Banzai slot by OpenBet has five reels and fifteen paylines and has been designed in a realistic cartoon style. It utilises the colour scheme as the show on which it is based. The show Banzai is a comedy television show produced in the UK that spoofs the various game shows on in Japan.
These Japanese game shows are known for being over the top and sometimes downright bizarre. The show tries to mimic this oddness and take it one step further.
The show is set up so that the people watching at home can bet on the outcome of each contest. The challenge is always very strange, such as elderly women playing chicken with electric wheelchairs, people eating eggs, and other bizarre contestants.
Music from the show is taken from the UK music charts from the nineteen seventies and nineteen eighties. The host of the show is Mr. Banzai but he doesn’t actually say anything in the show except for saying the singing the word Banzai over and over.
The background of the game is made up of bright orange red and blue colours. To the left and right of the slot, the player will see the various paylines displayed on blue arrows that are facing outward. Below the reels, the player is shown information about the slot and they are given options on changing several aspects of play. The bet per line is given and the player can increase or decrease this amount by using the blue and down arrows.
The player can also adjust the number of lines, going from one all the way up to fifteen. The player can also see their stake, the total amount paid, as well as select and view the paytable. Finally, the player can start the game by hitting the spin button or, if they’d prefer, use the autospin function in order to let the slot spin itself.
This is quite an exciting game, similar to the bingo for money options you’ll find around the web.
