Joker Fire Frenzy Review
Most slot developers turn their attention to the fruit machine theme at some point, as there’s a huge fanbase ready and waiting for more.
But the original slot mechanics don’t really deliver all the thrills that the modern slot player is looking for, which is where games such as Joker Fire Frenzy come in. Upgraded symbols and some hot features make for more complex gameplay, with tempting prize payouts for a few lucky players.
Classic slot games can look a little jaded, but that’s not something that applies to Joker Fire Frenzy. The symbols may be traditional, but the design team at Aurum Signature Studios has made them bright and shiny, so the game has a luxurious edge to it.
A dark background ensures symbols really stand out, and the flame animations are realistic enough to give you a warm glow. There’s an adrenaline-fuelled soundtrack too, to keep things moving along nicely – we couldn’t fault this game’s presentation!
Joker Fire Frenzy is easy to play, so you won’t have to spend time studying how the features work to get started. Just set your wager and spin the reels. The game is crossed by 20 fixed paylines and a Wild symbol is on hand to help out with winning combinations.
The Joker symbol is a Scatter, but it doesn’t introduce any bonus features. Land three or more Jokers anywhere on the reels to win a cash prize, with the amount shown alongside the game. To activate the bonus free spins round you’ll need to land a diamond symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 with a single spin. This awards you a spin of the bonus wheel, which offers up to 30 free spins along with a multiplier worth between 1x – 3x.
Cherries and BARs return your stake for five-of-a-kind wins, increasing to 2x for bells and 3.25 for stars or a mixture of 7s. Single, double and triple 7s pay up to 7.5x, 20x and 37.5x respectively, but it’s the Wild that tops the main paytable, awarding 125x your bet for a full payline.
Naturally, it’s the Joker symbols that you’ll want to see filling the reels, if possible. Landing at least 9 Jokers triggers the game’s top payout, which comes in at a pleasing 2,000x your bet. This is a medium-volatility game, so good bankroll management is needed to get the most out of the game – test out a few demo spins, if you can, so you get a feel for payouts before putting your own cash on the line.
We’re not great fans of fruit machine slots, but even we had to admit we’re impressed by the graphics and presentation of Joker Fire Frenzy.
The top payout of 2,000x isn’t going to be attracting any high rollers, but playing slots doesn’t always have to be about chasing the big jackpot payouts. If you’re looking for an interesting take on a traditional classic, Joker Fire Frenzy could just be your perfect new game!
