A jovial jester promises to deliver loads of excitement in Joker Strike, a slot machine powered by Quickspin. The five-reel, ten-payline game comes as a revamped rendition of the highly popular Second Strike slot, this time enhanced with a great design, sharp colours and the gameplay aimed more at high-rolling punters. The simple release benefits from the lucrative Joker Strike feature where you will see plenty of Wilds added to the grid, as well as the Hi Roller feature, upgraded with many extras, including Wild Strikes, Guaranteed Wilds and Double Chance wins.
Speaking of visuals, the Joker Strike video slot doesn't present any breakthrough. However, the simple design with traditional symbols such as diamonds, hearts, clubs, spades, as well as bells, stars and lucky 7s look pleasing to the eye and will, no doubt, attract the players that prefer classic slot machines with the straightforward gameplay. As you would expect, Joker is the most generous symbol on the reels, awarding 100x your bet for lining up 5 of them on a single line.
Before you team up with the playful jester, we would advise you to select your bet ranging between $0.10 and $100, by clicking on the Total Bet option. The Autoplay button is also available and will come in handy for players that don't feel like spinning the reels manually. Finally, the Spin button will set the reels in motion, while the Hi Roller button will allow for some feature enhancements, if you are willing to pay a bit more.
Any winning combo you create will trigger the Joker Strike feature, while the symbols that contributed to it, will be highlighted across the outer ring. A light will now start spinning around the ring and, should it land on one of the highlighted icons, you will proceed to the next stage, enhanced with twice the number of triggering icons that will be added to the grid.
The players that are not on a tight budget can try out the Hi Roller mode with three different options that will provide 5 spins with plenty of Wilds added to the reels set. By using this option, you can increase the RTP up to an amazing 98.11%. However, due to higher odds of winning, while playing in Hi Roller mode, payouts will be lower than during the regular play.
Joker Strike is a high-variance offering with simple, yet exciting and fast-paced gameplay that can offer up to 1,211x your stake on a single spin. Keep in mind, though, that using the Hi Roller mode will not increase the highest potential payout, but, it will definitely improve your winning power, so it's on you to choose the style you prefer most.
