When casino games keep coming out with new features, sometimes it’s nice to have something simple that fills the ache for nostalgia. Joker King by Pragmatic Play is a perfect slot for this purpose.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Many of you surely remember those early days when slots in online casinos were still very ‘fruity’. Old slots do have a charm to them, don’t they? Well, Joker King is basically a refined version of fruit-themed slots with the familiar orange, plum, cherries, bar and the sweet sweet 7, all in flashier graphics.
The game has a 6-reel, 4-row grid and 25 paylines. When you play Joker King slot, aside from the normal symbols, Wilds will appear randomly. In addition, this game also has a solid RTP of 96.5% and highly volatile reels which promise to be thrilling. Different from the straightforward fruit slots, Joker King has a trick up its sleeve: after a Wild appears, one random symbol type will turn into Wilds as well.
Once in a while, you will come across a crown symbol which is the scatter. Scatters carry a multiplier of either 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x or 25x, which takes effect on the total win. If there are more than 1 scatter on the reels, scatter multipliers are added together. But remember: a 3x and a 5x will result in an 8x, not 15x.
As expected, landing 3+ scatter symbols will take us to the bonus game with up to 20 free spins. In the bonus round, wild symbols will appear on every spin. What’s more, the free spins feature can be retriggered with 3 or more scatters with no limit.
Lesson number one here Troops: never judge a slot by its cover. Some people might think Joker King looks out of fashion, but there’s nothing wrong with minimalistic gameplay from time to time. Plus, the joker wild symbol transformation feature does a good job spicing things up.
Pragmatic Play games deliver once again, and if you like chasing big wins like me, you will enjoy the crazy high volatility of the slot. I may not have patience for naughty followers but I can always wait a bit to chase the 5,000x max win!
