Slots don’t come much more self-explanatory that 40 Joker Staxx 40 Lines. Created by Playson, it’s a 5 reel, 40 payline game where the main chance of landing a winner comes from the stacks of wild jokers. Play this super simple fruit machine on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

Playson has kept things simple here. The plain maroon reels are filled with the usual assortment of symbols you’ll find in a classic fruity reboot. Starting at the bottom of the food chain are cherries, lemons, oranges and plums. Land 5 of these on the same payline and you’ll receive 3 times your stake.

Tastier still are the grapes and lemons which offer awards of 4, 20 or 100 coins. They’re followed by the golden bar and bell which offer payouts of up to 6 times your stake. The most lucrative of the standard symbols are the golden and red lucky 7s. Hitting 5 of these in combination will see you trouser 10 times your stake.

More rewarding still is the smiling female of the jester. This jolly looking woman is the wild. She can land on all 5 reels and replaces all symbols apart from the scatter. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of these will trigger an award of 1, 5 or 40 times your stake. You’ll see the wild spin in fully stacks which can lead to some very tasty wild combinations.

The last symbol you’ll see is the star which is the scatter. Hit 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the same spin and your reward will be 4, 20 or 200 times your total stake. You’d normally expect to activate a free spin or pick me round here. That’s not the case in 40 Joker Staxx 40 Lines as there aren’t any bonus features on offer.

All the action comes in the base game. The stacked wilds and 40 paylines means you can expect a steady stream of action. The variance here is in the medium to high range. You can win up to 1,600 times your stake however on each spin.

40 Joker Staxx 40 Lines is a very straightforward slot. It won’t be for players who enjoy plenty of bonuses and features. This is as stripped back as you’ll get. If you’re a fan of classic fruity machines, it’s probably worth a quick look though. I would rather play other Playson titles like Claws vs Paws and Viking Gods: Thor & Loki.
