We head over to the gaming libraries of Pragmatic Play for this next slot. With its bright lights and wheel of fortune style set up, it certainly looks like it’s going to be an exciting one. But only time will tell whether we will enjoy it, as will spinning those reels.
Super Joker is a 3-reel, 5 pay line slot that offers players an RTP of 96.52% to enjoy. It’s set out to look like a casino floor style machine with the reels edged in gold and lots of flashing lights. It also has a video style track across the top of the reels, that sometimes turns into a wheel of fortune. Symbols are a mix of your normal slot game designs such as bars, bells and even a joker or two. There is a piano bar style music playing as the reels spin, which really suits the game overall.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Super Joker begins at 5p per spin and can be increased up to the maximum of just £25 per spin. In order to amend your bet you need to click the plus or minus symbol on either side of the spin button. Doing this will expand the bet screen and give you three different things to amend in order to find your perfect bet. There are the coins per line, coin value or total bet. On each section there is a plus and minus symbols allowing you to increase or decrease your bet accordingly. Once you are happy just hit the spin button which will immediately return you to the game, with a new spin at your chosen bet level.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol is the joker with a blue and red hat and joking smile on his face. He will substitute for all other symbols in the game and can land anywhere on the reels. He can appear stacked on the reels as well and this stacked symbol can help towards triggering one of the main features, so read on below to find out more.
Scatter Symbols – There is no scatter symbol in Super Joker unfortunately, but we found there wasn’t much need for it really. The two features that Super Joker has can be triggered without a scatter, so why add one?
Other Symbols – All of the symbols in Super Joker are retro in theme, as in they follow the old school design of bells, bars etc. Higher paying symbols are the diamond, bell, star, lemon and cherries. Lower paying symbols are your different sets of bars, the triple bar, double bar and the single bar. All the symbols in the game including the wild can appear stacked on the reels too and this will go a long way to helping create some wins.
Respin Till You Win Feature – As mentioned above all symbols can appear stacked on the reels. This comes in handy for triggering the Respin till you win feature. If you land x2 full reels of stacked matching symbols you will be awarded a respin of the remaining reels until a winning combination is formed. This feature can trigger numerous times throughout your gameplay, just so long as you land those all-important x2 matching stacked reels first!
Double Multiplier Wheel Feature – If you managed to land the same symbol on all reel positions then you will trigger this feature. The video screen above the reels will transform into a double wheel of fortune. The bottom wheel will spin and land on a multiplier from x1 to x5 or the word ‘up,’ which will push you up to the next wheel. The top wheel will spin only if you land on the word up and it holds multipliers on it from x5 to x20. If you land on the top wheel it will spin and you will be awarded one of the higher multiplier values. Once you land on a multiplier value, whether it is on the bottom or top reel your feature is over. The multiplier you landed on will be awarded to your bet amount and you will be returned to the main game.
Super Joker is a modern game cleverly disguised as a simple retro themed slot. This is all thanks to the guys over at Pragmatic Play, who are really good at taking something simple and giving it a bit of a kick. Main game wins come often enough to make the game passably enjoyable without the added extras. But factor in the stacked symbols, the respin till you win and the wheel of fortune, and you have got an absolute belter of a game on your hands. The respin feature doesn’t trigger very often and when it does it lacks a little on the entertainment side. But it is a nice addition as it will always guarantee a win of some form every time it triggers. The wheel of fortune feature takes a while longer to trigger as it needs to have all reel positions filled with matching symbols and we all know how long that can take. However, it did trigger for us twice whilst we played, and we got to spin the wheels which was super fun. Overall, Super Joker is an extremely enjoyable and playable game with plenty of win potential for those of you ready to play.
