We’re not going to discuss the visuals of Golden Joker Double Up because it’s the standard fanfare.

You’ll snag a few pennies when 3 matching symbols appear.
The symbols on the reels are watermelons, plums, lemons, grapes, oranges, cherries, blue 7s, red 7s, and jokers.
A bunch of them any position on the grid offers a payout of up to 15x. The Wild only appears on reels 2, 3, or 4.
Moreover, it subs symbols and only 1 wild appears per reel.
Yeap, there’s a Bonus Wheel, come to think of it it’s the standard sideshow of the fruity slot.
Depending on the number of diamond bonus symbols that pitch. You’ll receive anything from 1, 2, or 3 spins on the Bonus Wheel.
Now, once the Bonus Wheel screen appears. Guess what? You can snatch 4, 6, 8, 12, or 20 free spins along with a Mini, Major ad Grand jackpot.
The size of the jackpots is 50x, 100x, and 500x your stake.
The premium joker symbol appears stacked or single in the free spins.
The wild symbols also drop random multipliers of 2x or 3x. Interestingly, if more than one wild multiplier occurs in a win, the values multiply up to 27x.
Moreover, when 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters appear during the free spins; they award 5, 8, 15, or 20 free spins.
Lastly, if 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters land during the bonus round. You’ll bag 5, 8, 15, or 20 additional free spins.
You can double your average bet when you use the Double Up Side Bet.
You’ll see that the bonus symbols double in size and they appear partially or in full.
The double bonus symbols count as a single symbol even if they appear partially.
You can skip the base game entirely if you use the feature buy option.
Consequently, you’ll purchase a spin on the Bonus Wheel. The cost for this little luxury will set you back 100x the stake.
We tested the buy option a few times with free credits and the results were disappointing.
The first time we used it the win was $150 and the second time delivered a win of $820.
Further, we managed 45 free spins for a combined payout of $940. To say the least, it’s not very encouraging.
Hence the reason, Golden Jokers Double Up will only appeal to a certain group of players.
Without beating around the bush Golden Jokers Double Up is as good as it gets. It’s a niche slot machine since it caters to a core group of players.
iSoftBet strikes up the right balance between the jackpot, volatility, bonuses, and hit frequency.
Yes, it has old-school written all over it, but who cares. The slots studio tosses a few goodies onto the grid as well.
That’s to say, a 27x multiplier, up to 20 free spins, and a 9,093x jackpot.
Perhaps the jackpot could have been bigger since the max bet is only $20. We dig the multiplier wins in the free spins.
Yet, we have this nagging feeling that the jackpots of up to 500x in the free spins are just filler.
Especially, if you’ve dropped a pretty penny of 100x to use the buy option.
