Joker Explosion Slot
We’re used to crazy jokers wanting to launch an explosive plan, so when Wazdan’s Joker Explosion was created it didn’t surprise us in the slightest that yet another joker was ready and waiting to blow things up, only this time instead of Batman it’s the reels on which you play!
While that sounds pretty bad and like you’re about to lose out on a lot of cash, it’s actually the opposite – the more this trickster shows up and blows up, the more money you stand to gain. The biggest decision you need to make is whether you’ll help him with this mad scheme.
Loaded with detonators and dynamite, you’re in for a ride that you’ll never be able to fully prepare for, and with the large progressive payouts available, we’ll doubt that’ll bother you in the slightest.
Your first look at this title may leave you asking what is so special about it – it doesn’t look very unique, nor does it appear unusual compared with many others? It’s all about the subtle details, visually and audibly speaking.
When the game first loads it’s with an epic explosion blazoned with the name of the game, and then you’re straight into the 5 reels and 5 paylines, most of which are adorned with bland card icons, however don’t let them fool you. By them being so generic they really emphasise the special symbols on the grid, which in turn adds more impact when they ‘go off’. And boy do they!
There are only two icons that come under the ‘bonus features’ category: the grinning joker himself and the lit sticks of dynamite. The detonator doesn’t hold any unique value other than rewarding you the most money at 20 credits every five matching tiles, so don’t let it fool you. Returning to the wild symbol, he will remove other icons besides the scatter, but he will also expand and freeze on your reels if he appears without rewarding you a win.
As for the scatter or free spins logo, it will give you between 10 and 20 bonus spins depending on whether you find three or four of them across your paylines. What makes these whirling icons so special is that they can be retriggered so that your extras keep on climbing, and it can happen quite a lot throughout your playthrough.
Paying the Joker His Dues
The betting opportunities given are quite thorough and enable players to start from a very insignificant 0.10 all the way up to a much higher 100.00 credits; these values can be scrolled through or determined by the Max Bet option, it’s completely your choice.
What isn’t determined by you is the number of lines you play with; this online activity is a fixed paylines machine, which means you have to play with all 5 given, which is a little unusual for the brand as they normally give you the option. Nonetheless, due to the lower end of betting, placing several coins on all the paylines shouldn’t cost you too much.
Speaking of cost, take a look at the progressive jackpot that is up for grabs, which has been known to increase to over €30,000 at any one time. Even though this has happened in the past, it doesn’t mean you’ll be graced with such high amounts, in fact your jackpot may be as small as €23!
The total is always changing though, so if one playthrough proves less than fruitful there is always another time. From what we experienced, how much you stake doesn’t affect the final amount you gain, which seems a little unfair.
You Can’t Kid a Kidder
Joker Explosion is one of the more classic slots we’ve come across, though we use the term classic with a pinch of salt – while it appears conventional in layout, the contents offer a wider selection than those that are truly old school.
Nonetheless, that isn’t to say it is the most uptodate slot machine you will encounter in today’s market. And while the element of uncertainty surrounding the final jackpot is indeed exciting, it can lead to a lot of disappointment for players who are expecting a lot and receive only a little, but that is the nature of such a game.
