Another slot to trundle off Playson’s fruit machine conveyor belt is 100 Joker Staxx: 100 Lines. As its name suggests, it’s played using a 5 reel, 100 payline game engine. This new arrival doesn’t offer much in the way of extras but does deliver some simple, old school action. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
Like many of Playson’s fruit machine reboots, the setup in 100 Joker Staxx: 100 Lines is very simple. On the deep purple reels, you’ll find the usual assortment of classic fruit machine visuals. The lowest payers are the oranges, cherries, plums and lemons. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll win an award equal to 0.05, 0.25 or 2.5 times your total stake.
The melon and grapes follow, delivering 0.1, 0.5 or 5 times your total stake. Next come the bar and the bell. These deliver awards of 0.5, 1.5 or 7.5 times your total stake. Top of the bill as far as the standard symbols are concerned are the 2 lucky 7s. Both the red and gold 7s pay 0.5, 2 or 12.5 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The smiling jester in the harlequin hat is the game’s wild. As well as replacing all of the standard symbols, she can deliver some chunky awards in her own right, paying 1, 5 or 50 times your total stake for a 3, 4 or 5 symbol combination. The most lucrative symbol though is the golden star which is the scatter. This will get you 4, 20 or 200 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 anywhere on the reels on the same spin.
That’s your lot as far as gameplay goes. There are no bonuses or features here. This is as stripped back a game as you’ll find. The 100 paylines means that there’s plenty going on. As far as volatility goes, we’re in the medium to high range with a theoretical 20,000 times your stake available per spin (if you fill the reels with golden star scatters).
If you’ve played the other slots in Playson’s Timeless Fruits series, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect here. The very basic gameplay won’t be for everyone but if you fancy playing an old school, one armed bandit style slot, then that’s just what 100 Joker Staxx: 100 Lines delivers. If you want bonus features, Legend of Cleopatra is worth playing.
