Jokerizer Slot from Yggdrasil Gaming has the standard five reels plus three rows, but just 10 Paylines, half of which work from left to right, while half run in the other direction. This 2016 release is a glossy affair, which aims to recreate the traditional fruity, albeit with the odd hidden surprise, not to mention HD graphics.
An abandoned fairground is the backdrop here; the circus is in town, but there’s no one around, even though all the lights have been left on. You may find the backing music somewhat sinister at first, but it’s certainly in keeping with the theme of this slot.
How to play
Spin away from just 10p a pop on this game, which, as you’d expect, is fully mobile compatible.
Symbols here will be highly familiar to fruit machine fans and include grapes, lemons, cherries, bells, 7s and purple stars. The Joker is the only other icon, described in more detail below.
Jokerizer Slot special features
You won’t find free spins, multipliers or indeed that much in the way of bonus features at all here. But there’s still a lot to enjoy nonetheless.
The Joker symbol serves as your Scatter here, and he only shows up on Reels 2, 3 and 4. He is also the key to the bonus features in Jokerizer Slot. There are no Wild icons in the game.
Land a minimum of three Joker icons wherever you like on the reels to reel in a mystery win of between 1,000 and 6,000 coins.
You’re in even more luck if the symbols are in a direct line, either diagonally or horizontally – this automatically grants you the top prize of 6,000 coins.
This is triggered after every winning spin. It means that you’ll be able to choose between banking your winnings or continuing to play using the payout from that spin in Jokerizer mode. The price for that is 20 coins per spin, but even if two Jokers rock up, you scoop a mystery gift of anywhere between 20 and 6,000 coins.
Either collect or keep on playing with this middle until the Jokerizer coins run out. Equally, any time your prize is 1,000 coins or higher, the feature finishes.
One word of caution – if you’re in Autoplay mode, Jokerizer mode starts up automatically and without the option to collect any winnings straight away.
The game doesn’t have a jackpot as such. Maximum win here is 6,000 coins, as explained, or €12,000, so make the most of that instead!
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player in Jokerizer Slot is well above average at 98%, and you’ll find this a high-variance game.
Offering a high entertainment factor plus some creative features and excellent visuals and sound effects, Jokerizer Slot is well worth a second look, and it stays true to its fruity heritage. It plays smoothly, even in its fastest modes.
Equally, its simplicity makes it a good choice for the new or less experienced slots player. However, if you want Wilds, free spins and other slot machine bells and whistles, or plentiful snazzy features, you may need to look elsewhere.
But give it a go, and see for yourself whether it’s a game that works for you, then tell us what you thought.
