Play N Go produce some top slot games and here’s one that takes a good look back at the glory days when fruit were the dominant symbol. They were here, there and everywhere and that’s the case in ‘Star Joker’ but as the title of this classic slot might suggest, it’s the joker symbol that provides the player with some great wins.
This free Star Joker slot is a five-reel game with three rows of mainly fruity symbols and a total of ten pay-lines. The background to this slot is purple and has grids of circles that have lights flashing across them. Those ten pay-lines are a fixed amount so you have no option but to play them on each spin. Setting your stake causes no problems at all, just use the control buttons underneath the reels. The minimum cost of playing is 0.10 and the maximum a total of 100 so ideal for a high roller. Just work out a level you can safely play at and enjoy playing this entertaining video slot.
Symbols remind me of the old fruit machines with the watermelon, cherries, oranges, plums, and strawberry. There’s also a bell, a red 7 and a blue diamond and they along with the fruit symbols are the lower paying ones in this game. The star is the wild and can substitute for all the other symbols apart from the scatter which is the joker. If you can get five of the wild symbols anywhere on the reels then that has a 100x multiplier so gamblers will love that. There is another wild symbol but this only appears in the free spins round, so more details about that soon. In the base game, there is also a Joker symbol.
Three of the scatter symbols triggers the free spins bonus round and this is when the other wild makes an appearance. That’s the Joker Wild and this substitutes for all the other symbols on the reels so in the ten free spins you win, there should be a fair few winning combinations. If those scatter symbols come along in triplicate again, then the free spins are re-triggered.
As well as the bonus game, there is also a gamble feature. When you get a winning combination in the base game, there’s a bit of animation with the symbols and then the option to play the gamble feature. You don’t have to and if you want can turn the offer down and collect your win. If you do opt to go for the gamble feature it’s the playing card game. You can either attempt to guess the colour of the next playing card to double your win or the suit of the next card to quadruple your win. You can have five correct guesses if you are lucky. However, if you make a wrong choice then you lose all your win so this review urges caution.
This isn’t the most complicated of free video slots but it is important for you to learn as much about it as you can before playing it for real. That means clicking on the information button that is at the far left underneath the reels. This brings up the paytable and it’s packed with information about ‘Star Joker.’ That includes telling you how much each of the winning combinations pays out. For example, five of the red 7’s has a 10x multiplier. The paytable also shows you where all the pay-lines are and has details about the bonus game, the wild and scatter symbols.
This slot also has an autoplay feature allowing the player to take a break. The control button is underneath the reels to the right of the spinner and it can be set for between ten and fifty automated spins of the reels. If you wish it can be set so that they stop when the free spins round is triggered, when your account balance rises or falls by a certain amount or a win of a certain size comes along.
This is an entertaining slot game to play and there are several others out there that have similar gameplay. For example, you could try your luck on the Novomatic slot ‘Blazing Riches.’ That also has just the ten pay-lines and uses fruit as its main symbols. The game offers ten free spins with a 1x multiplier and has extra wilds in the free spins round. Alternatively, you could play the Merkur video slot ‘Under the Rainbow’ which has a slightly lower RTP and has one triggered bonus round.
Another entertaining slot from Play N Go and one you will enjoy playing at online casinos. If you love retro style slot games then this is going to be right up your street. It’s always good to see the older symbols make a return and it’s even better when they are mixed in with modern-day gameplay. There are some good wins to be had, particularly in the bonus round if that extra wild symbol works its magic. Be careful with that gamble feature though especially when playing with real cash.
