Why Joker Pro
With Christmas and New Year well and truly over, we thought that you could do with a bit of fast paced, neon-coloured, futuristic fun. So that is why we have chosen Joker Pro as our Game of the Month for January 2018. The game is simple, with only 10 pay-lines, simple animations and a basic bonus round. However, keeping things simple has made it easy to play, fast paced and lots of fun with great payouts. Just what you need to help get through the January blues.
Joker Pro is a cool, slick, fast-paced, futuristic 10 pay line video slot game from NetEnt. It was launched in July 2016 and has been a firm favourite of slots players ever since. The game is aimed at traditionalists who enjoy a simple game that is just about the spins and bonus round.
Type of slot
Joker Pro is a video slot that has crisp graphics and smooth game play, just what you would expect from one of the industries biggest slots game providers.
The theme of Joker Pro is futuristic, neon, bright city lights with a hint of nostalgia in the form of its symbols.
Style and Feel
Classic 777, bells and clover leaf symbols gives this a game a slight classic style but the neon colours and digital display background bring it into the modern era. The use of dark blues and purples give it a slick, cool feel that reminds us of the latest futuristic sci-fi movies. It also has a upbeat soundtrack that adds to the overall style and feel of the game.
Although Joker Pro doesn't contain any characters, is still just as exciting to see the colourful jester hat appear.
Paylines and Reels
Joker Pro offers players 10 fixed pay lines and 5 reels, with two becoming fixed wilds when the bonus round is triggered but more on this to follow. Not the biggest selection but it keeps the game simple and fast paced.
Mini Slot Feature
The game is not the most feature rich in the market but it does have the basics and they are done well. The game offers a scatter symbol, the jester hat, and a wild card, which is just the word 'wild'. When one or more scatter symbols appear in reels 2, 3 or 4, a special feature called 'Joker Pro Re-spin' is triggered. During this bonus round, reels 1 and 5 turn into wilds, whilst reels 2, 3 and 4 turn into hot spot positions. The scatter symbol that triggered the bonus round turns into a wild and sticks on the reel whilst the other reels re-spin. During the bonus round, if another wild symbol lands on the reels, then another bonus round is triggered or if three wilds land then 1,000 times the stake is awarded. Wow, now that is a big bonus round.
