Joker Gems is an ELK Studios slot which is played on a 5 by 5 grid. Using a Cluster Pays game engine, you can spin away from 20p to £100 a spin across all devices including iOS and Android. Set in a Nebula, you find the gems of the universe where your wildest dreams can come true. It comes with a Light Chaser feature where a cluster of up to 5 symbols is added with a free respin to follow. With 3 fixed jackpots to be won, this medium to high variance slot offers payouts of up to 700 times your stake as well as 50,000 euros with 1 of the jackpots.

Visually, you are taken to Joker Gems which is a vibrant and colourful corner of the universe – with a space theme, you’ll come across a 5×5 grid. Symbols on the grid include green, orange, blue and red gems as well as purple bar gems, blue 7 gems and a female jester.

You can form winning combinations by getting a cluster of 3 or more identical symbols – the larger the cluster, the bigger the payout. The female jester character is the most rewarding symbol giving you 700 times your stake for 16 or more on the grid. The blue 7 gem symbol rewards you with 500 times your stake for 16 or more which is pretty good.

Once you get a winning cluster, the contributing symbols are connected with a free respin awarded – this gives you another chance for the cluster to grow. The respins continue as long as new symbols are added to the cluster or another cluster is formed.

Joker Gems comes with a randomly triggered Light Chaser feature – the light chaser travels over the grid and stops randomly. A cluster win of 4 or 5 identical symbols is then added which then gives you a free respin. Basically, it guarantees you a winning cluster of up to 5 symbols with a respin.

Now, you will notice Joker Gems offers you 3 fixed jackpots – the amounts are £10,000, £20,000 and £50,000. Any of the 3 fixed jackpots can be won randomly on any spin. The higher your stake, the better your chances of winning 1 of the 3 jackpots.

If you manage to get 16 or more jester symbols, you’ll win 700 times your stake. If you’re lucky enough to win the big jackpot, this could result in £50,000 as well as 700 times your stake. If playing at the maximum £100 stake, this would result in a 1,200 times stake win (£120,000).

Joker Gems looks the part and has the potential to pay out 700 times your stake on each spin/respin. If you add the 3 fixed jackpots into the mix, it becomes quite an interesting proposition. Saying that, ELK Studios has released better slots such as Sam on the Beach. Overall, a decent slot again from the rising provider.
