The primary characters are Buck and Chip as lovable astro-chimps. The planet is filled with not only bananas but a multitude of fruit. The action heats up when wild symbols land on one of the three middle reels. These wilds have the ability to expand to fill the entire reel. This will trigger the cosmic respin feature.
When the respin feature is activated, those expanded wilds will remain locked in place. The other reels will respin and any additional wilds have the ability to trigger further respins. The end result could produce some significantly lucrative rewards.
