Joker Fortune slot game has been designed very differently from what we’re used to with a cute design full of bright pastel colours – the design looks like it’s come straight from Super Mario, with square gills, neon rainbows and lush green grass.
The reels are surrounded by Hollywood-style lights and to the top of it you can just about make out the wheel of fortune bonus game. Symbols that you will find on your reels include; cherries, orange, lemons, plums, watermelons, grapes, colourful star, golden bell, a laughing joker and the joker fortune wheel symbol. All fruity symbols have eyes, which humanises the slot game.
Featuring 5 reels and 10 paylines, you can adjust your bet accordingly, with the buttons to the lower of the reels. The paylines are not fixed, so you can choose to play one payline or all of them, but the more you play the better your chance of winning.
Joker Fortune offers a massive non-progressive jackpot of 5,000 coins and that can be won by tempting five of the golden bell characters to fall onto your payline. The second highest paying symbol is the colourful star – this awards 1,250 coins. These maximum amounts on offer are only available should you choose to bet maximum stakes of 50.00 a spin.
To start with, there are wild symbols which can form various wins by substituting all other symbols found on your reels.
Wheel of Fortune bonus is randomly activated during any spin. The wheel will come into play and automatically choose any of the reels to become part of the bonus. When we played, reels 4 and 5 were activated for this bonus and when the wheel stopped spinning, it landed on a watermelon symbol. Reels 4 and 5 spun and all of the symbols on those reels were changed into watermelons.
You can get your hands on free spins by spinning 3 to 5 bonus symbols on your reels. Three symbols awards 5 free spins, four symbols awards 10 free spins and five symbols awards the maximum 15 free spins.
Worth the Hype?
Joker Fortune slot game is a medium variance slot game so be prepared for periods of playing without triggering a decent win. The bonus is triggered automatically – this is what we love about the game, but it can take a while to make an appearance. Just because the bonus wheel is activated, doesn’t mean you are guaranteed a win – we had several goes of the bonus and didn’t win on every turn.
You will trigger wins during the base game and during the free spins bonus, the majority of our wins came from the base game, because it took a while to get our hands on free spins. The animations are superb – a bold move from Stake Logic Games, but it pays off.
Joker Fortune will suit all types of slots players, as it offers decent cash prizes for tall budgets. Wins are awarded left to right and right to left – so there’s plenty of chances to win big and fill your cashpot.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is 95.89%.
