It may look like a traditional old-school fruit machine but start spinning on Jokerizer and you’ll soon find that there are some surprises in store. This 5 reel, 3 row, 10 payline video slot from Yggdrasil Gaming offers win both ways payouts and most importantly the Jokerizer Mode where mystery wins of up to 6,000 coins are on offer. Join the jovial jester from between £1 and £20 per spin.

Our host in Jokerizer is the clown in the jester’s hat who is central to the game’s best features. Find 3 or more Joker symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll be awarded a Mystery Win of between 1,000 and 6,000 coins. Even better is if the 3 Joker symbols are in a direct line either horizontally or diagonally. If this happens, you’ll automatically be awarded the maximum prize of 6,000 coins. The Joker only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the 3 middle reels).

After every winning spin, you will activate the Jokerizer Mode. Here you’ll be given the choice of collecting your win or carrying on playing using that spin’s payout in Jokerizer Mode. This will cost you 20 coins per spin. The advantage of opting for the latter is that if even 2 Joker symbols appear anywhere you’ll be awarded a Mystery Prize of between 20 and 6,000 coins.

You can collect or carry on playing in the Jokerizer Mode until you run out of Jokerizer coins. A Mystery Prize of 1,000 coins or more will also bring the feature to a close. Be careful if you’re using autoplay as the Jokerizer Mode will start automatically and you won’t have the option to collect immediately.

The sound and visuals in Jokerizer are typically excellent as you’d expect from Yggdrasil. The symbols are glossy, HD style and set against an amusement park backdrop. Even playing at turbo speeds, the reels are super slick. The backing track has a slightly creepy film, but fits in nicely with the joker theme.

For a slot that doesn’t offer free spins, multipliers or much in the way of bonus features, there’s plenty to enjoy here. The key to winning is hitting the Jokerizer Mode where the Mystery Prizes on offer can be very impressive, especially as you only need two for a payout.

A little unusual it may be but the Jokerizer can have you laughing all the way to the bank. Saying that, Yggdrasil have produced better slots such as volatile titles like Cazino Zeppelin or Chibeasties.
