Joker Strike is powered by Quickspin and is a 5 reel, 3 row, 10 payline slot that can be played from 10p to £100 a spin on all devices. You get to take on the Joker with an outer wheel which comes into play when you get a winning combo. With extra symbols landing for bigger wins, it comes with a Hi Roller feature where additional wilds and wild strikes are in play for huge wins.
Joker Strike is simple in terms of appearance and looks like a modern fruit machine – with classic symbols like diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades, you will also see stars, bells, lucky 7s and Jokers on the reels. The latter is the most valuable giving you 100 times your stake for 5 on a payline. There’s also a wild symbol which replaces all symbols when part of a winning combination – it offers you 30 times your stake for 4 on a payline.
When you get a winning combination, the outer wheel surrounding the reel set comes into play – this is known as the Joker Strike feature. The winning symbols are highlighted on the wheel – if the light stops on a lit/winning symbol, you’ll get a strike. Then more of that symbol will be randomly added to the reel set with a new payout to follow. Now, if you get a win with a Joker wild and the wheel stops on a lit Joker, 2 wild symbols per joker are added to the reels for huge wins.
Joker Strike is the first Quickspin slot to use the Hi Roller feature – you will get 5 linked spins with additional goodies coming into play. You have 3 options which are as follows:
- £20 option – a Joker wild is added to the reels which moves clockwise on every spin.
- £30 option – a Joker wild is added to the reels with Jokers appearing on the outer wheel.
- £50 option – a Joker wild moves around the wheels with extra markers on the outer wheel. This doubles your chances of getting a wild strike on each of the spins.
When playing using the Hi Roller feature, the value of the symbols dramatically increases – for example, you can achieve 5 of a kind wild wins which gives you 200 times your stake. As for all other symbols, the value doubles – for example, the Joker gives you 200 times your stake as opposed to 100 times your stake in normal mode.
That’s it regarding bonus features – there are no free spins unfortunately. Joker Strike is simple but it’s fast paced and exciting. It’s a high variance game with maximum wins of 1,211 times your stake on each spin. Using any of the 3 Hi Roller options doesn’t increase the maximum payout but does increase the win potential/probability though. Saying that, the probability of winning really big is better in the base game that using the Hi Roller feature.
Joker Strike is very similar to Second Strike (also by Quickspin) which offers slightly higher maximum wins. If you prefer bonus features and free spins, Quickspin has plenty of options including Volcano Riches and Sticky Bandits.
