Joe Exotic Review
Everyone's favourite Tiger King has now got his own slot with Red Tiger Gaming leading the fray. Titled Joe Exotic, this bizarre slot plays on 5-reels with 20 paylines and has a maximum win of 3,500x your stake.
For those of you living under a rock for the past few years, Joe Exotic is a pop-culture icon who became famous due to Netflix's Tiger King series. The series focused on the life of a zookeeper and convicted felon Joe Exotic with a documentary style that had people hooked throughout 2020.
It's clear that there is only one Joe Exotic, and therefore only one Joe Exotic slot. So journey to the G.W Zoo in Oklahoma to join Joe and all of his kooky associates in this bonkers slot.
As expected, the background of the slot relates to Exotic and his life with pictures and stills from the series in the background. Surrounding the reels, you'll find a golden tiger print that adds some extra flair to the slot.
Now, the symbols on the reels contain different figures and memes throughout the series. You have James Garretson, Allen Glover, Jeff Lowe and of course Joe Exotic as symbols with Joe being the main star. Once you land on them, they animate with bling around them to create an extravagant appearance.
Sadly, the music is generic country sounds and we found there was no audio dialogue from Joe himself after the opening credits - which felt like a missed opportunity. If they got permission from Joe Exotic, they could've added in one of his famous tracks such as Here Kitty Kitty or I Saw a Tiger.
Honestly, the gameplay is pretty straightforward and formulaic. Don't worry about picking up the gameplay as all you need to know how to do is set your bet and spin.
Of course, the bonuses are exciting and full of laughs but the gameplay is still easy to follow. The spin button can be found at the bottom right of the screen with the autospin and bet level to the far left. At the bottom of the screen, you'll find the paytable and help button with further settings at the top of the screen.
Joe Exotic is a high volatility slot with a mediocre RTP of 95.70% - this is above the average but just barely. According to the developers, the maximum win for this slot is 3,500x your stake which can be won through the free spins with a multiplier of x15.
This slot promised us the world but sadly didn't deliver. Honestly, the premise of using Joe Exotic as the topic for a slot is genius but the execution just isn't there and the design is lacking. Similarly, the win potential is just too basic for a high volatility slot and we expected a little more. Perhaps, if they had voice-over lines from Exotic himself or even just bigger wins, this slot could've been a legendary slot that is remembered by fans.
If you were obsessed with Tiger King last summer and loved the whole world of Joe Exotic, then definitely check out this slot as there are some fan moments within. For those of you looking for a bonkers slot with loads of raunchy moments and exciting moments, then we suggest trying out Sausage Party instead with even more wins.
