Royal Joker Review
Fans of Playson slots will be familiar with the Hold and Win mechanic. It's become a staple in a majority of Playson slots such as Lion Gems: Hold and Win, Ultra Fortunator: Hold & Win and Pirate Chest: Hold and Win to name a few.
Royal Joker: Hold and Win is the next respin slot from the developer. However, this slot plays on 3-reels with paylines and features a fruit machine theme throughout. Find all the slot has to offer in this review.
Like most fruit machine slots, the overall design of this game is nothing special. There are traditional fruit symbols including cherries, oranges, lemons, blueberries, grapes and watermelons as well as bar and bell symbols.
The main symbol is the joker who looks absolutely terrifying. He looks neither royal nor like a joker rather seeming like a jester instead. However, the purple background promotes a regal experience.
As for the audio in the slot, there is barely anything during the base game. There are some sounds indicating wins but that's about it. There's a little more during the bonus round but it's nothing too exciting. We're just grateful that the audio is not too annoying.
For a 3-reel slot, Royal Joker is entertaining with some simple gameplay. The base game keeps is traditional with nothing special - but the bonus round changes this entirely.
With the bonus round, you'll gain 3 respins that reset with each new symbol. There are also fixed jackpots and multipliers throughout to add even more thrills to the slot.
However, it's worth pointing out that players looking for feature-heavy slots may be a little disappointed. We recommend Playson's Pirate Sharky if that's what you are looking for.
If you are looking for massive wins, then Royal Joker is the slot for you. In this slot, you can win up to 20,000x the stake during the bonus round with multipliers and fixed jackpots. This is quite a hefty amount that high rollers will be excited for.
This high volatility slot does disappoint with an RTP that is under the average at 95.62%. This is something that will put off a few players as the general standard is 96% and above. However, with the massive win, it's easy to forgive the lower RTP for the bigger win.
Royal Joker is a slot that is easy to recommend to players looking for 3-reel slots with something different. The same standard gameplay remains throughout the base game but this is improved with the bonus game.
With the bonus game, you'll find modern mechanics such as multipliers and fixed jackpots. The design is nothing special but this is made up for by the maximum win of 20,000x stake.
