Mega Joker Pokie Review
Mega Joker is a Novomatic throwback to the old days of when people used to play fruit machines. These land based pub classics have grown on the hearts of many seasoned players, which is why the gaming supplier has decided to strike with a hefty dose of nostalgia. The pokie features 5 reels, 40 paylines and 4 rows – to compensate for the additional paylines.
Various fruits in the likes of oranges, pears, strawberries and the mandatory numbered symbol – 7, are the main attributes of most fruit machines. They are of course, present on the reels of Mega Joker along with a few special appearances.
The game, in essence, is quite simple and not all too eye-catching overall. Sometimes less is more, and we certainly can’t fault the game’s aesthetics for not accomplishing something they’re not even supposed to.
About The game
Coins Range:0.01 To 1.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:No/No
The Wild symbol in this pokie, the Joker himself always flies in stacks across your reels, but does not necessarily mean you’ll always see more than one of him. On the flip-side, it’s not unusual to see over 5 or even 10 Wilds at once.
The Wild, as per usual, substitutes for all other symbols except for the Scatter. The game also boasts a Scatter symbol, but unusually enough the Scatter does not lead to any bonus round. It merely acts as an additional multiplier.
No matter what type of pokie we are talking about, Novomatic never fail to include the Gamble feature in their games.
As is the case with Mega Joker, you can either Gamble or Collect any win. Should you choose the former, you’ll get a shot at guessing the right card color between red and black.
Be careful though, as by guessing wrong you’re losing what you won in the first place, which is why we wouldn’t recommend meddling that much with this volatile feature – especially on bigger wins.
The base game symbols are not too shabby at all, but the Scatter symbol is where the jackpot is hiding.
When 5 Scatters appear on a certain payline, a massive coin reward will be bestowed upon you – far higher than any other symbol. The actual amount depends in your initial stake, but theoretically you can be rewarded with a win of X500 of your bet and upwards.
Overall, it would be no surprise if most of you won’t be satisfied to hear the game doesn’t boast any bonus rounds.
Nonetheless, this game is one of Novomatic’s most played pokies, and the reason for that is that the base game can be quite rewarding and make your time spent playing quite worthwhile. The Scatter, Wild and the almighty 7’s can act as fantastic multipliers.
