Jokerizer is an unfussy 5-reel fixed 10-pay line online slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. This is a ‘traditional’ online slot with a difference – the difference being that every time you manage a win on the slot, you can gamble your winnings by changing the game mode to ‘Jokerizer’ mode. The symbols in the game are all traditonal pub fruity style symbols – bells, lemons, cherries and lucky 7s, for example – and winning is as simple as lining identical symbols up on one of the pay lines. There are only five lines in total, but they run both left-to-right and right-to-left, creating ten. All ten lines are in play at all times, so your coin size (0.01 to 2.00) is multiplied by ten for each spin.
When you win (which, to be honest, does not happen as frequently as you might expect based on our experiences) you have the option of entering ‘Jokerizer’ mode. This costs twenty coins per spin, and you have the chance of winning bigger ‘mystery’ prizes.
Payouts start at 20 coins for three cherries, lemons or grapes, and run up to 400 coins for five stars.
The joker acts as the scatter symbol and can appear anywhere on the centre three reels. Landing three joker symbols anywhere on the reels will award a mystery win, which can be anything from 1,000 to 6,000 coins. If you manage to land three joker symbols in a straight line, then you win the jackpot of 6,000 coins.
When you are in ‘Jokerizer’ mode you only need to land TWO jokers to be awarded the mystery win, although it can be anything from 20 coins to 6,000 coins. If you land a win of over 1,000 coins then Jokerizer mode automatically ends.
Jokerizer is a nice idea, and we can see why the game has become popular with punters who prefer simpler slots. However, most online slots players these days prefer something a little more sophisticated, and one where wins do not happen so infrequently, it has to be said.
