If you enjoy the simple pleasures of playing in a bricks and mortar venue but don’t often get the opportunity to venture to your local casino, you’ll love taking NetEnt’s Mega Joker for a spin. A classic three-reel, five-payline title that features four separate pay tables, Mega Joker is initially quite a daunting slot machine to look at, but once you get to grips with the simple user interface you’ll soon discover it’s not as complicated a game as it first seems. Essentially, winnings from the bottom set of reels can be collected or gambled on a more valuable set of reels, with all winnings being stored in the same supermeter window that players will recognise from Jackpot 6000.
Mega Joker is essentially a retro three-reel slot machine and the software designers have done everything in their power to make it look that way. The reels appear on an actual slot console just like the ones you’d find in a Vegas casino, while even the background features potted plants and coloured drapes as if it were located in a VIP gaming lounge. The symbols to feature on the reels include a traditional array of fruit symbols, with cherries, oranges, lemons, grapes and watermelons being joined by liberty bells and lucky sevens to complete a classic theme. The joker is a mystery symbol capable of awarding random prizes, while flashing lights indicate your currently selected pay table.
The fact that Mega Joker features two sets of reels is a bonus in itself, with players able to transfer any winnings from the bottom set into the supermeter in order to play for bigger prizes. On landing a winning payline, players can transfer a portion of or their entire win to the supermeter using the bet button, with this fund then being used to pay for several additional spins. Depending on your stake level on the top reels, an additional two paytables can be accessed, with any joker symbol now capable of providing a random mystery prize of 100-2,000x your bet. Winnings can be collected at any point during the supermeter game or players can choose not to risk their base game wins at all.
A pretty unusual slot to look at, once you know where everything is located in Mega Joker it’s actually a relatively easy game to play. Three coin denominations at the right of the screen allow players to select stakes of £0.10, £0.20 or £1.00, while the bet button lets you toggle between wagering one and ten coins in total. When combined, these two variables make the slot playable for between £0.10 and £10.00 per spin, with the bet button also being used to select what portion of your winnings you wish to gamble on the supermeter feature after a regular winning spin.
Essentially a classic slot machine that has been beefed up by multiple reels and bonus payouts, Mega Joker is the perfect compromise for players who enjoy the playability of retro titles but want to get a bit more bang for their buck in terms of features. In addition to the supermeter set of reels, the game even awards a random jackpot prize from time to time to ensure that players have plenty of opportunities to win big.
