Joker's Luck Review
From the offset, there's not a lot to say about Skywind's Joker's Luck apart from the fact that it is a slot inspired by traditional fruit machines. Impressively, it only has 1-reel and only 1 bad combination which involves the red joker. The focus is to build up the cashpot tower and ultimately gain the biggest win at 500x your stake. It seems inspired by other fruit machine classics such as Fire Joker or Jackpot Bells in the colour scheme and design palette. There are no free spins, multipliers or special bonus rounds as the focus is all about the cashpot tower and not rolling the pesky red joker.
Take a trip down memory lane and enter the world of Joker's Luck. The background is reminiscent of a circus with the red and different swirly lines with the reel in the middle. Above the reels is the cashpot tower with the different symbols and indications of what level you are at. The symbols themselves look simple yet effective, with the jokers looking straight from a fairytale.
Don't expect over the top music or dialogue, as this slot is almost silent. There are noises of victory and failure, but they are quick and immediately forgotten. If you love slots without the hassle of annoying sounds and vibrant visuals, then Joker's Luck is one to check out.
As previously mentioned, this slot plays on 1-reel which ultimately means that the slot is about as easy as it gets. All you literally have to do is spin and hope not to land a red joker. The tactics come in with the decision to either keep spinning or collect your current winning. There is a paytable at the bottom of the screen, but you'll most likely not need it. All you'll need to focus on is the bet level and the spin button which can be found at the bottom. Players can even set autospins from 10 to 999.
Now Joker’s Luck is a high volatility slot, but one with a solid RTP at 97.61%. This is incredibly high especially for a traditional fruit machine slot. The maximum win in this slot involves filling up the 3 cashpot towers to win 500x your stake.
You basically have a 1 in 5 chance of rolling the red joker, but that doesn’t mean that he comes up. It’s up to players whether it’s worth it to keep going and risking a red joker, or safely cashing out early.
Naturally, this slot isn't for everyone. It's clearly designed for a selected audience who prefer nostalgic traditional fruit machine and are all about the wins rather than the game. If that is what you like to play, then you'll love Joker's Luck. With a phenomenal RTP and a decent maximum win, Joker's Luck is highly recommended for high rollers who enjoy this type of slot. For newcomers or modern slot players, stick to the classics such as Dead or Alive 2 or Immortal Romance.
