This is another take on the classic fruit machines, this time by BF Gaming.
Online video slots have kept the tradition of simple fruit–themed games as a way of paying respect to the machine that started it all.
…there is a significant number of players who like to walk down the memory lane from time to time and get reminded of the simpler times.
…in the case of this release, the gameplay is not as basic as the choice of the theme might insinuate.
The see-through reels…
…are set against a multicolored background. The soundtrack is rather modest, but the visuals are top-notch. Graphics are stunning and so are the animations.
Betting Options and Symbols
Joker Spin is played on 5 x 3 grid and 20 fixed pay-lines.
The betting range goes from 0.01 to 2.5 € per line. With bet per spin going from 0.20 up to 50 € high rollers won’t be satisfied.
…when we look at the pay-table, we’ll find good ol’ plumbs, oranges, kiwis, lemons, grapes, watermelons, and cherries. The most rewarding of them are cherries with 10x total bet for lining 5 of a kind.
…among the regular symbols are the golden bell and the red 7 which are the high – value icons with 15x and 20x total bet for the ultimate combination of 5 on the pay-line.
During medieval times, every celebration on the court and in the house of a nobleman had one very important protagonist – the jester. These entertainers…
…in their silly outfits and eccentric hats in a motley pattern possessed a wide variety of skills. Their acts included singing and dancing, storytelling, acrobatics, juggling, telling jokes and performing magic tricks.
…the Jester made its way into the world of gaming in the mid-19th century when they were used for the first time to depict the Joker card.
In this title…
…the Jester is the Wild symbol and it appears on middle 3 reels only. As per usual, the Wild can substitute for regular symbols bar the Scatter. If 1 or more Wilds land on the grid during the main game, it will trigger one Extra Spin during which the activating Wild will be kept in its position from the previous spin.
When it comes to the Scatter, it is represented by the blue diamond and just like the Wild, it appears only on the middle 3 reels. As a part of the paytable, it will reward you with 2 or 20x your total bet for landing 2 or 3 of them.
…more importantly, by landing 3 Scatters player will trigger 15 bonus rounds with 2x multiplier. This round can be retriggered.
After every winning spin, players can choose to play the Gamble feature. This simple card game, where you have to guess the color of the hidden card, can double your win from the previous spin or annul it.
All in all, a classic fruit – themed slot with modern gameplay.
With different fruits as main actors on the reels, the overall look of the release is quite retro, but once you start with the spinning, it will be obvious that there is more than what meets the eye. With features like Sticky Wild, bonus spins, multiplier and Gamble round, the gameplay can get intense.
