Whats not so hot?
Net Entertainment’s Joker Pro has 10 paylines, 3 rows and 5 reels that offers a top non-progressive jackpot of 200 coins or 1,000x your line bet. The video slot is suitable for play on mobile phones (Androids, iPhones, iPads or tablets) and PCs be it in the free mode or for real cash.
During the base game the Joker Pro Re-spins is triggered when one of more scatter symbols pitch on reels 2, 3 and 4, I’ll discuss this feature more in a bit. The game’s theoretical return to the player (RTP) percentage is 96.8%.
One of the features I like about the slots is its upbeat audio that has a bit of a futuristic ring to it, overall the game mechanics are pretty bland with no innovative streaks. Paying icons on the reels are bells, diamonds, horseshoes, 4-leaf clovers, red sevens and bars. Against the backdrop of the reels you’ll see lights flashing in the background. This is the type of slots you’ll find in pubs across the UK.
There’s also a wild symbol that spices up wins especially when it appears during the Joker Pro Re-Spins mode. Graphic wise the slots is okay but not near as sharp as Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild (https://casinowhizz.com/slots/jungle-spirit-call-wild-slot-review-bonus/).
The reels spin at a blistering pace so take your time in between spins especially if you’re playing with a small bankroll. In terms of appearance Joker Pro is quite similar to Twins Spins. The symbol that offers the biggest cash prize is the diamond, 5 of them at the maximum wager pays 200 coins.
What happens if you become disconnected during play? No need to worry, all Auto Play will return to default when the game is reloaded. In the event the game’s software malfunctions bets and payouts will be rendered void and refunded.
Joker Pro has 10 (1 to 10) Bet Lines, 10 Levels and the coin value starts with 0.01 up to 1. As you increase the ‘Level’ your average bet per spin will increase too. Bets can be made from 10 pence up to £100 per spin.
The wild symbol only appears on the middle 3 reels, it substitutes all the other symbols to form a winning payline except the scatter. The wild has a unique purpose too and it pertains to the Joker Pro Re-spins bonus mode-should a wild symbol appear they become sticky awarding an extra Joker Pro- Re-spin.
Joker Pro Re-Spins
The Joker Pro Re-spins feature is the beating heart of this slots, when the Joker Hat (scatter) appears on the second, third or fourth reels the feature is triggered. It does not end here, the moment 3 wilds land in the ‘Hot Spot’ position, the Hot Spot win of a 1,000 times your stake will be won ending the Joker Pro Re-spins.
During the Joker Pro Re-spins, reels 1 and 5 are turned into wild reels and three Hot Spot Positions appear in the middle of reels 2, 3 and 4. If no extra wilds appear during this feature it ends and you will return to the main game. The sticky wilds really boost wins during the Joker Pro Re-spins so keep an eye out for it.
I’m going to be perfectly honest here, NetEnt’s Joker Pro Re-spins did not grab me at all-I did take it for a few spins and found it to be quite tight even at the lowest bet level (£0.10). My take on the slots is that it’s medium variance and reserved for die-hard fans only. The money bit of the slots occurs when the Joker Pro Re-spins is triggered and the sticky-wilds re-spins.
