Destinations include the company's two most successful hotel and casino properties in Tampa and Hollywood, Florida, both owned and operated by parent company The Seminole Tribe of Florida, as well as other locations including Bali, Chicago, Cancun, Ibiza, Las Vegas, and San Diego.
"We are constantly looking for opportunities to increase and deepen brand affiliation among Hard Rock's millions of loyal fans around the world and we are excited to bring them this new game, which will also allow us to unite the online and offline experiences that the Hard Rock brand offers," said Kresimir Spajic, senior vice president of Online Gaming at Hard Rock.

To acquire Free Spins, players need to achieve three or more Scatters anywhere on the gameboard, which will award ten. With a win, players can gamble their winnings in a double or nothing round by guessing which banana the Orangutan will choose.
“We can’t wait for our players to get their hands on our latest release,” said Booming Games CEO Max Niehusen. “Exhilarating gameplay, charming styling and innovative features make Booming Bananas destined to become a firm favourite amongst both casual and professional players.”
