Where to play?
Joker Strike is a 10 payline,3 row, 5 reel, medium to high variance video slot from Quickspin. The top cash prize (non-progressive jackpot) that you can win on a single spin is 1,211x your stake. It gives players two options: A Normal and a High Roller version. The RTP (average return to player percentage) of the ‘Normal’ version is 96.46% and the High Roller version’s is 98.11%.
Unfortunately the game does not have a Free Spins feature, it does however have an Outer Wheel that’s triggered by every winning spin that gives you extra wilds (Joker Wilds) for the bigger wins. The second bonus mode is a High Roller feature that awards wild strikes and wilds, basically you’re guaranteed a payout on every spin.
When it comes to the game’s appearance all we can say is that it looks like a glorified fruity machine. Symbols on the reels are spades, clubs, hearts, diamonds, stars, bells, lucky 7s and Jokers. The symbol that offers the biggest payout is the Joker, land 5 of them at the maximum wager on the reels, you’ll pocket 100x your stake. The wild is the next valuable symbol 5 of them pays 30x your stake.
The smallest bet per spin is £0.10 up to £100 per spin. Personally we prefer to play with the Hi Roller switch flicked on. Yes it’s more volatile but the wins are pretty decent. We’ll elaborate more on this feature in a bit.
The wild symbol appears only on the outer wheel in the Hi Roller mode containing the ‘Wild Strike’ feature as well as 5 of a kind wilds.
The Joker Strike
After each payout you’ll notice that the winning symbols become animated on the outer wheel. A marker randomly spins around the the wheel. when it stops on a highlighted symbol extra symbols will be added to the reels. It works like this:
- 6 Extra symbols for a 3 of a kind win
- 8 Extra symbols for a 4 of a kind win
- 10 Extra symbols for 5 of a kind win
High Roller Function
”The value of each symbol during this feature shoots up drastically, 5 of a kind Joker wins pays 200x your stake.”
The ‘High Roller’ button is next to the ‘Spin’ button, once you clicked on it the feature is activated. A new screen opens up which gives you 3 options offering you 5 spins:
- The first option is a €$£20 bet with a guaranteed wild (97.89% RTP).
- The second option is a €$£30 bet that gives you a wilds during the Joker Strike feature. (98.02% RTP).
- The third option is a €$£50 bet. Extra wilds and wild strikes are given and an additional marker on the outer wheel which spins both ways. It increases your odds at triggering the joker wild strike feature. Although the RTP is higher (98.11%) it doesn’t mean you’ll get a decent payout.
Joker Strike is a fast-paced slots that doesn’t beat around the bush, what you see is what you get. The volatility is sharp, it doesn’t have a free spins feature; it does make up for this with the ‘High Roller’ function which makes it all the more exciting.
Your chances of hitting a really big win here is better than the Standard version. If you can afford those High Roller spins go for it. Alternatively, if you prefer a slots with free spins we recommend Leprechaun Hills (https://casinowhizz.com/slots/leprechaun-hills-quickspin-slots-review/).
