Here’s another game that is a bit of a throwback to the days when games only had three reels and there wasn’t the theme related symbols we have now. ‘5 Line Jokers’ has some traditional fruit symbols, some stars and 7’s just like in the good old days.
There may be only three reels but the game has a more modern feel with a total of five paylines in all. This isn’t expensive to play and it also incorporates more 21st century features and has a wild symbol, a mystery bonus and the chance to gamble your wins.
The look of the game is a rather simple one. That’s logical I guess as games in the past didn’t really blow you away with their design. You simply wanted to get in the arcade and start playing and hopefully winning some money. Little did we imagine how games would develop in the decades to come.
One area where older games had a few problems was their soundtracks. The noise in arcades used to drive me crazy sometimes. The music for this game follows down that route so the mute button was quickly pressed.
Symbols include lemons, cherries, oranges, grapes, watermelon and plums It’s the lemons and cherries that are the lower value symbols in this game. Away from the fruit it’s the 7s and Joker symbols that will get you the big wins. Three matching symbols on an active payline will see you winning some cash.
The wild symbol in this game is the Joker and it’s really important when this arrives on the reels as it has the ability to substitute for other symbols to get you some excellent winning combinations.
It’s really important to open up the paytable. This tells you lots about the game including details of how each winning combination pays and details of the bonus games. Reading through that and having some free games will build up your knowledge of the game ready to do battle with your real cash balance.
Look out for the star symbols. This doesn’t have a set value but If you can get three of them on a payline then there’s a bonus coming to you. This can be between 2x and 25x your win There’s also a random bonus that can be awarded and this can be anything up to 25x your bet.
There’s a gamble feature in this game and it’s a double or nothing one. Now I like the idea of doubling a base game win but the nothing bit is rather worrying. That’s why it is important not to go overboard on these gamble features. You’re here to win money but not to chuck away wins you’ve already managed to get. You don’t have to gamble and can just turn the offer down and go onto the next spin of the reels if you want. If you do go ahead.
There may only be three reels in this game but there’s still a decent amount happening here going on. Whether it’s the mystery bonus, the random bonus, the wild symbol or the gamble feature then you have chances to get good wins. It’s fun waiting for the random bonuses to come along but be careful with the gamble feature. This is definitely recommended so don’t be put off by its retro look and lack of free spins etc.
