Play’n GO Is Taking Us Back to Basics with Its New Star Joker Release
- January 2, 2019 By Oliver Young -
Classic fruit themed slots never cease to surprise us, and Play’n GO’s Star Joker only proves that these slots, even though simple, provide us with so much fun. Play’n GO has managed to introduce the new to the classic by adding a huge payout potential to a seemingly straightforward game. Star Joker is set out to become the new star to the developer’s slot selection.
A Simple Fruit Slot Done Right
Star Joker is a 5 reeled slot giving you the chance to bet on 10 paylines. It gives you the old-school simplicity when it comes to the gameplay, as well as fairly simple symbols. You will see the usual fruit symbols such as plums, oranges, watermelons, strawberries, but also the well-known diamonds, bells and lucky 7s on the reels. Even though Play’n GO used the original layout, it has visually enriched the slot using impressive graphics, sophisticated visual effects and well-done design. You will hear the standard classic slot machine sounds of coins falling whenever you form a win, so you will definitely get the classic meets the modern in Star Joker.
It Takes a Few Spins to Grab the Highest Payout
Even though the fruit theme may imply the game doesn’t have special features, Play’n GO has made sure to make the gameplay a little more engaging by implementing a Wild, a Scatter and a chance of triggering Free Spins.
The Wild in Star Joker will be the Golden Star. You will see the Golden Star Wild forming wins with other regular symbols as a substitute, but you will see it form wins with its own symbols, and giving you the highest 500x the stake payout.
The Scatter symbol, on the other hand, is the Joker, which you will see in two versions. First, during the base game, you will see the regular Joker symbol. Three regular Joker symbols will trigger 10 Free Spins, and during the Free Spins, you will see the Golden Joker. The Golden Joker will act as a Wild during the Free Spins, since it will replace for all symbols, including the Golden Star Wild, in the formation of winning combos. Three Golden Joker symbols will retrigger the Free Spins. This is where you get a second chance to win the highest payout of 500x the stake.
The RTP, Betting Range and Payout
Since the game offers 10 paylines, you get the chance to bet $0.01 per each line, meaning the minimum bet you could place is $0.10. The betting range is suitable for both low and high-rollers, since it can go up to $10 per line, meaning you can wager a maximum of $100.
Payout-wise, you should know that the developer has set a decent RTP of 96.25%, which makes the potential reward better than in most slot games. As mentioned, the slot promises 500x the stake payout for a winning combo, per line. Multiply that with 10 paylines, and in the best case scenario, you get 5,000x the stake payout. For the max bet, we’re talking whopping $500,000 for grabs! Now, this is, indeed, a payout worth your time. For a fruit machine, Play’n GO’s new release and payout potential definitely deserve your attention.
