ABOUT

Joker Bombs slot is one of Hacksaw Gaming’s releases featuring a lighter, more bubbly theme.  Due to the carnival-inspired game, players get to experience the explosion of colors and hopefully big wins which can land anywhere in the range of up to 5,000x the bet

Betting Options and Bonus Features 

The 6x5 grid is stationed in the sunny fairground with rollercoasters, carousels and balloons all over the place. Although theme and medium volatility might make you think this is more of a relaxed game, it wouldn’t take long before you see just how thrilling this slot can be! 

Joker Bombs features 96.48% RTP which meets the industry standards and cascading reels - winning symbols are removed from the reels to be replaced with the new ones, creating a chance for yet another win within the same spin. 

Instead of traditional paylines, Hacksaw went for All-Scatter Wins mechanics meaning the winning combos are made in the form of the matching symbol clusters. To land a win, you need at least 8 of them while 15+ symbols bring the highest prize.  

While balloons of different shapes occupy the bottom of the paytable, premium symbols of the Joker Bombs slot are represented by colorful candies. The top-paying Red Candy symbol will get you 200x the bet for a 15+ cluster

The Wild symbol is not part of the gameplay but there are Scatters and Multiplier Bomb symbols. As their name suggests, Multiplier Bomb symbols bring multipliers and if you land one or more multipliers their values are stored as a pending win multiplier which is applied to the total win amount of the spin. There are 3 types of Bombs available: ​

  • Normal Bomb - comes with 2x, 3x, or 4x multiplier attached and adds it to the pending win multiplier. 
  • Revealing Bomb - lands with a ? sign on it, explodes, reveals a multiplier with 5x, 10x, 25x, or 50x value and adds it to the pending win multiplier. 
  • Epic Bomb - lands with an X sign, explodes, and multiplies the pending win multiplier with one of the possible values - 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 10x. 

Jack in the Box symbol is Scatter and 3 or more of them appearing on the reels in the same spin will trigger 10 free spins. Multiplier Bombs appear more frequently during the bonus round and the chance of landing higher value ones is bigger than in the base game. Also, if you manage to get 3 Scatters in the bonus game, it will bring extra 5 free spins. If you don’t feel like waiting for Scatter to land, there is a Bonus Buy option for 100x the bet. 

Roshtein’s Take 

Not one of my favorites from the Hacksaw’s offer but certainly one of the better ones produced by this amazing studio. Multiplier Bombs are the most important feature of the slot and they can make this game explode in a skyrocketing winning frenzy! In combo with the cluster pays and cascading reels, these Multiplier Bombs can provide you with some of the best and most pleasurable gaming moments. They are what really makes Joker Bombs such a good game!
