Catch Fire for Cash
Fire Joker is a 3-row, 3-reel, 5-fixed payline, online slot set against a dark, diamond patterned background. The flatness of the background is what anyone would expect of a plain game styled after classic slots. The overall graphics quality is subpar when compared to competing slots which incorporate 3-D graphics and animations. However, subtle animations such as fire engulfing the reels and surrounding winning symbols are incorporated which adds a nice touch. The music has a retro feel reminiscent of early console gaming.
Fire Joker displays cash values for Balance, Bet and Win along the bottom of the slot screen making it incredibly convenient to track cash flow during gameplay. Selecting a bet has never been easier. Simply click the + or – button to choose from 13 Cash Bet options (0.05, 0.10, 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 1.50, 2.00, 3.00, 5.00, 10.00, 25.00, 50.00, 100.00) at Mr Green. Fire Joker Paytable values are multiplied by the Bet/Line when calculating wins and remain fixed despite changes in Bet.
This classic, online video slot’s 9 symbols consist of nostalgic Fruits, BARs, Stars, and Red-7s. There is one special symbol only. The Flaming Wild is a smiling Joker head which flames up and replaces any symbol. The regular symbols, listed in order from highest to lowest value, include Red-7, Star, BAR, Plum, Grape, Lemon, Cherry and X.
Fire Joker’s 5 fixed paylines payout from left to right only. So, get 3 symbols along any active payline to win. For a single payline profit, get 3 Lemons, Grapes, Plums, BARs, Stars, Red-7s or Jokers. Multiple wins on differing pay lines are counted toward the Total Win. For example, if a spin yields 3 Lemons along lines 1 and 2, then a win of 10 would be applied to the Bet/Line. For a Bet selection of £1 pound, the Total Win would be auto-calculated by the game as follows: 20p x 10 = £2.
Fire Joker’s highest paying symbol is the Flaming Joker Wild symbol. The Wild pays 80 for a match of 3 giving the Main Game the potential to award up to 80x the Bet/Line each spin. That’s a potential to win up to £8,000 on one spin. Of course, it is possible to increase that potential tenfold with the Wheel of Multipliers Bonus Feature.
As is standard in several Play’n GO slots, Fire Joker’s Autoplay gives 5 options ranging from 10 -50 consecutive spins. Advanced setting s include setting Autoplay to stop on any Main Game Win/Bonus Game Win, stop if a single win exceeds a set amount or if the Cash Balance increases/decreases by a set amount.
Fire Joker also allows players to press Stop once the reels are in play to freeze them quickly allowing players to control game speed. Some players also enjoy this feature for the feeling of added control it gives over where the symbols land on the reels.
Fire Joker Bonus Features
Flaming Re-spin: In the event that spin yields no win, yet the first 2 reels match, then those first 2 reels freeze in place while the 3rd reel re-spins. This Feature gives players another chance to form a winning combination.
Fiery Wheel of Multipliers: If all 3 reels fill up with the same symbol, a flaming wheel will spin and a random multiplier will be applied to the win. Get a random multiplier in the amount of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x. This Feature increases the Main Game’s potential to award up to 80x the Bet to 800x the Bet.

Spin and Hope Fire Consumes the Reels
Players who favor slots which give the opportunity to take a stroll down memory lane will find that Fire Joker holds enough classic slot machine elements to do just that. The fruity symbols, 3 x 3 reels and chance to win a moderate jackpot of up to 800x the Bet serve to deliver a nostalgic slot experience.
While testing the demo at Mr Green, Fire Joker delivered about 1.8 wins every 10 spins. Though less frequent when compared to other online slots, those wins were mostly profitable, and around half were multiple Line wins. The Flaming Re-spin Feature activated 9x out of 100 spins, and the Fiery Wheel of Multipliers activated once awarding a win multiplier of 3x for a big win of 5x/Bet.
This is certainly not the 1st time that we have seen a classic slot with a Joker theme. Check out popular titles such as NextGen Gaming’s Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge or Play’n GO’s Mystery Joker. When comparing Fire Joker to Play’n Go’s older slot, Mystery Joker, we see a marked improvement in the potential max prize. Fire Joker offers up to 800x/Bet as opposed to 100x/Bet.
