Joker Ice Frenzy Review
A distinct feeling of deja vu may well torment you whilst you play this slot and if you weren't overly impressed with the fiery version, it's unlikely that the chilled-out vibe will do it for you either. You've got to be invested in this Joker character and the Epic Strike feature to really get the most out of this game.
As with the original, the look and feel of this game are nice enough, but won't blow your mind. All of the symbols are the same, the reels are the same, the main character is the same and even the music is pretty much the same. All you can expect is a few more icicles to adorn these icons. Take Joker Ice Frenzy for a spin on your mobile if you like as everything replicates perfectly on smaller screens.
The Epic Strike feature does keep you on the edge of your seat and saves this Base game from feeling a little boring. The Joker symbols are not shy in coming forward, so you never know what instant wins you might pick up along the way. Other than this, there's nothing else to get excited about and nothing much changes in the Bonus game either. Naturally, the additional multiplier should see some bigger wins come your way but don't expect the game to suddenly throw you a curveball. It might be possible for players outside the UK to get directly to the bonus via a buy-in option but the version I played did not display any info about this.
It will come as no surprise to hear that the maximum payout is still 2,000x, as it was in the original game. The volatility remains medium and the RTP is 96.24% once again.
I wasn't a huge fan of the first game but that was nothing to do with the slot itself. My irrational fear of jesters and clowns would’nt let me relax and so this game really didn't stand a chance! What I will say is that the Epic Strike feature can bring a slot session to life all of a sudden so regardless of the game choice, if this feature is present, you could be beaming from ear to ear. The medium volatility helps as you should hopefully see your balance remain largely intact while you wait for a slightly bigger win to come along.
