Introducing Jesters Joy slot
Jester Joy is the newest release this November from the gaming developers at Booming Games. This is a three-reel classic slot which offers a lot more than you would expect to get from most fruit slots that are currently available whilst also offering some great features along the way. Even if you are not a fan of the Jester, who is usually thought of as the main character in older slots, but thanks to the features that are on offer in this slot I expect all players will forgive the common Jester theme.
Theme & Design
Jesters Joy is a typical fruit themed slot that and has been designed to look as though it is a far older slot with dated graphics, however the graphics suit this slot perfectly. The slot is well designed, however in my opinion the slot may have worked better had there been a story attached to the game, unfortunately though this seems to be something that the developers at Booming Games appear to have forgotten. You will end up with a mix of common classic symbols, there is also the wild logo, Jester scatters and a x7 multiplier wild. The other symbols you will have come across many times and include the usual fruits lemons, plums, cherries, and then stars and bells.
The slot plays out over three reels with 10 active pay lines and this is more than enough for this game, as there is the chance to activate pay both ways in some of the slot’s features. When it comes to the features, there is the scatters, free spins, and wild's and each of these are central to the game and most appreciated when they land. This slot offers a medium volatility and a return to player which stands at 96.23%, this is above the average in this industry, and has the capability to provide you with some huge rewards.
When it comes to winnings during the free spins the pay both ways mechanic comes into play and this is where you are likely to land the top prizes.
When it comes to the wild symbol which is represented with the wild logo you can form new winning combinations thanks to its substitution powers and there are also wild multipliers which are represented by the x7 symbol and will boost your wins by the amount they revel to you. This can have a huge impact on the amount you can win, and this is also a good way for you to get nearer to the game’s jackpots. The scatters are represented by the jesters and landing three of them on your reels will activate the free spins feature where you have plenty of opportunities to create some fabulous wins.
Once you land a winning combination you have the choice to take part in the gamble feature, however unlike most slots this is not just gambling the win, you also have the choice to split the gamble instead, whereby you do not risk all of your winnings as well as giving this slot a unique feature that you will not find in most fruit slots, or any themed slot actually.
You can play Jesters Joy in a demo mode and I highly recommend doing so as this is the best way to get to grips with what the slot has to offer and decide whether it is for you before you have to bet a single penny. I know there are players who would scoff at the idea of the free play being classed as a feature but to me it is worth the same as some of the best paying features as I am a fan of learning all about a slot before I start to play.
I personally like playing these old-fashioned style slots as it takes me back to my childhood days, when 3-reel fruit slots were all the rage! Not everyone will feel this way and therefore the slot may not appeal to all, however I do feel that there is enough variance in the game to appeal to a wide audience. My rating for this slot would be 7/10 and this is purely based on the gameplay rather than the features or anything else the slot offers. Having said this the features can be lucrative, but you will have to be patient to walk away with the really big wins.
