Joker Jester is a festive 3-row, 5-reel, 20-adjustable payline slot. The reels are set against a rainbow coloured background resembling a circus stage complete with the folds of a red curtain running along the top of the game screen. There is a certain appealing simplicity to the caroonish graphics that by no means takes away from the quality.
Joker Jester shows all values for Total Bet, Bet per Line and Balance in cash only along the bottom of the slot screen. To choose a Total Cash Bet ranging from 1p – £40 at Vera&John online casino, select a number of Lines (1 – 20) AND a Bet per Line (1p – £2). The regular coin pays listed in the Paytable are multiplied by the Bet per Line and displayed in the ‘win box.’ Scatter pays are multiplied by the Total Bet.
Joker Jester has 11 circus themed symbols. There are 4 special symbols including a Jester Wild, Basket, Barrel and Juggling Balls Scatter. The Jester Wild can substitute for regular symbols to complete winning combos and also form its own winning combos. The Barrel and Basket are involved in triggering special Bonuses. The Juggling Balls Scatter awards wins of 2 – 5 matching symbols which are multiplied by the Total Bet as opposed to the Bet per Line. There are 7 Jester Joker regular symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Castle, Lute, Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10.
This online slot’s gameplay is left to right. So, get 2+ (Lutes, Castles, Wilds) or 3+ of any other symbol to form a winning combination starting from reel 1. To profit along a single payline (all 20 Lines activated), get 3+ Scatters, 3+ Castles – Wilds, 4+ Kings – higher OR 5+ of any. Of course, with only 1 Line active, get 2+ or 3+ of any symbol to profit. The highest paying Joker Jester symbol is the Jester Wild showing a value of (500, 300, 150, 10). It gives Joker Jester the potential to award up to £1000 for a 5 of the kind match, and up to £20,000 along all 20 paylines.
NextGen slots often feature an Autoplay option that ranges from 5 – 100 spins. Advanced options include ‘Last Play’ which allows players to automatically repeat the last selection number of spins. During Autoplay, gameplay can be stopped by pressing the ‘stop spin’ button. Additional Joker Jester Game Settings are limited to switching sound on/off.
Joker Jester Bonus Features
Juggle Bonus: The appearance of 3 Baskets (reels 1, 2, 3) triggers this Bonus Feature. A colourful Joker Jester juggles 3 eggs to start with. Players must add eggs one at a time to increase the potential coin prize. The more eggs that the Jester successfully juggles, the higher the win. Golden eggs randomly appear greatly increasing the prize. Add as many eggs as you dare – if the Jester drops them, the bonus automatically ends. End the Bonus manually at any time by clicking on the ‘collect the win’ button.
Barrel Bonus: The appearance of 3 Barrels (reels 3, 4, 5) triggers this Bonus. Players must click on barrels for the chance to win coin prizes. If the Joker Jester is discovered hiding in a barrel, then the game ends awarding only the coin prizes that have already been uncovered.
Jester Wild Feature: This Feature is randomly awarded during gameplay. After a spin is completed, an animated Jester transforms symbols into Wilds for the chance to produce additional wins.
Gamble Feature: This Bonus is a special standard Feature offered in several NextGen Gaming online slots. After any win, the ‘Gamble’ button will light up indicating that this option is available. Players that wish to increase winnings by double or quadruple the amount must correctly guess the colour (red/black) or suit (diamond, heart, spade, clover). A maximum of 5 correct attempts is allowable. An incorrect guess results in loss of all winnings for that round.
