Epic Joker is a classic fruit machine reboot from Relax Gaming. It’s played using a 3 reel, 5 payline game engine, it comes with wild reel re-spins. Fill the whole of the reels with the same matching symbols to activate Super Mode and with it up to 10 free spins. Play on all devices from between 5p and £200 per spin.

The set up in Epic Joker is very simple but there’s a glossy look to the design. On the reels you’ll see cherries which pay 0.4 times your stake if you land 3 on a payline followed by plums and oranges which award 0.8 and 1x respectively.

Next come the bars which pay 2 times your stake and the lucky 7s which award 4x. The best standard symbol is the star. Land 3 of these in one of the game’s 5 paylines and you’ll get an award of 8 times your stake. The symbol you’ll really be hoping to see though is the joker which is the wild. This substitutes for all other symbols and pays 100 times your stake if you land 3 in a row. The joker is also central to 1 of the 2 features.

Joker Re-Spin feature – land 1 or 2 stacks of jokers and they’ll lock in place and you’ll be awarded a re-spin. Land another stack of jokers and the process is repeated. If you’re lucky enough to fill all 3 reels with jokers, then you’ll win a bonus prize of some 500 times your stake.

Super Mode feature – fill all 9 positions on the reels with the same matching symbol to trigger Super Mode. You’ll then receive 5 free spins. Re-triggers are possible here too giving you up to 10 in total.

A 3 reel, 5 payline fruit machine was never going to overloaded with extras. There’s enough going on in Epic Joker to keep things interesting though. The wild re-spins offer plenty of potential. The theme here is classic but there’s a fresh look to the visuals and the synth heavy soundtrack gives the game a modern feel.

If you enjoy a well-designed classic fruity with the odd twist thrown in, then that’s precisely what you’ll find in Epic Joker. I also suggest you try some other 3 reel slots which offer more bonus features like ELK Studios’ Vegas Diamonds.
