Joker Millions Slot from Yggdrasil Gaming is another attempt at updating the classic fruit machine, in the form of a five-reel, three-row offering incorporating 25 fixed Paylines.
Visuals are kept simple and unassuming yet high quality, and there’s a jazzy backing track alongside the whirring sound of an authentic fruit machine. Reels turn inside a red and gold-rimmed frame, as a red, sparkly background fades into a lugubrious distance.
The game celebrates the Joker figure’s long history, from court jesters to the Nordic trickster Loki plus similar incarnations. The friendly character presented in this game has set himself the task of giving away the crown jewels!
Look forward to a number of creative perks and a progressive jackpot on this 2015 release, which was updated in 2019.
How to play
Spin away on mobile-optimised Joker Millions Slot from just 25p a pop, or for up to £25 a go.
Expect to see a multitude of familiar symbols among the bright, oversized icons, from bells, cherries and plums to melons, oranges and lemons. The most rewarding is the lucky red 7, shelling out at 300x line bet for five on one active Payline.
Joker Millions Slot special features
You won’t find a Wild in Joker Millions Slot, but there is a Scatter, as represented by a Joker on a golden casino chip.
Freeze and Respin
Launch this function when three similar icons (but not the Scatter) arrive on the same Payline. The symbols forming the winning combo remain frozen in place while the other positions respin.
Should another icon of the same type show up, the same thing happens again. This continues until no further icons freeze when you’ll be paid your winnings before the game shifts back to normal mode.
Fill one or more of the slot columns with identical icons to multiply your win by however many winning columns you have. (E.g. Two winning columns give a multiplier of 2x.)
There’s a progressive jackpot in Joker Millions Slot, and 5.5% from every bet is stored away towards it. Clearly, the more you stake, the more you’re likely to win. The jackpot kicks off at €100,000, but in theory, can reach €3m or more. All casinos offering the game share the same jackpot pool, so that it becomes supersized.
Jackpot Spins feature
This activates when you get a Joker on every reel, i.e. five in total. They all freeze, the game respins and the process repeats itself until no further Jokers rock up. Each fresh Joker also comes with a mystery reward of up to 2,500 coins. Match all 15 and you’ve hit the jackpot, whose value is shown above the reels.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Play in Joker Millions Slot is 94.3%, which may sound somewhat mediocre. However, it’s not that bad when you take the game’s progressive jackpot into account. Volatility is low to medium, while the hit rate of a whisker over 14% is also relatively low.
Even in its speediest mode, Joker Millions Slot plays very smoothly indeed, with intuitive gameplay. It also suits a broad range of players. And because the fast-paced, straightforward features are integrated within the base game, you’ll find a lot going on to maintain your interest. So there’s actually quite a bit more to this one than just another jazzed-up fruity.
Try it for yourself to see if it’s a game that works for you, and share your thoughts.
