Review of Relax Gaming’s new Epic Joker slot machine.
There are a few things autonomously associated with casino gambling. A trio of lucky sevens (7-7-7), a spinning line of fruit symbols, and—of course—the face of a Joker. Their absurdly brash carpets could also be included on that list, but I’ve left that one off because everything else makes up the classically symbolic nature of Relax Gaming‘s latest digital gambling title, Epic Joker.
After several years developing games for other companies, Relax Gaming has spent the last two months focusing its creativity on the brand’s first proprietary network slots. The new Epic Joker Slot is their third such release, following the recent introductions of Erik the Red and Zombie Circus.
This morning’s press release announcing the launch calls the new game a “modern twist on a classic slots formula.” It comes with classic 3×3 reels and a classic fruit-machine theme, but with several more unique features that classic slots don’t generally offer, such as Super Mode free spins, Joker re-spins, and a 500x bet jackpot.
Relax Gaming CPO Simon Hammon comments:
“We are delighted to have expanded our video slot portfolio with Epic Joker, an engaging title that captures all of our flair for rich and expertly constructed gameplay.
“Well-timed pay-outs encourage longer play sessions, and we are sure that both new players and veteran slots fans will love the game’s fresh twist on a classic formula.”
Epic Joker Slot Machine Review
Epic Joker is a digital slot machine that’s optimized for game play on any and all devices and operating systems via HTML5 programming. Desktop and mobile, Windows and Mac, Android and iOS—all run the new online slot seamlessly.
The game’s 3×3 reel-set comes with the usual 5-line pay table. Being fixed paylines, the minimum $0.01 coin size presents a great opportunity for recreational gamblers to make a budget bankroll last by wagering the lowest possible $0.05 per spin.
The symbols are the usual fruit machine type—7s, stars, bars, oranges, plums and cherries—with the Wild Joker in the mix. All symbols, including the wild, can appear stacked, making for more opportunities to strike a lucrative combination, and to unleash the game’s Super Mode feature, worth 5 Free Spins.
Super Mode Spins are awarded when the full 3×3 reel grid is covered in all of the same symbol. Any standard symbol will do the trick, so long as they all match. The player immediately receives 5 free games, played at the same coin value as the triggering bet.
Joker Re-Spins is another unique feature of the new Epic Joker Slot. Whenever a stack of wild Jokers appears on a reel, the Jokers will hold in place as the other reels take off for one free re-spin. The Joker Re-Spin can occur in the base game, as well as during the Super Mode free spins.
If another stack of Jokers appears, a second Joker Re-Spin takes place. This is the easiest time to line up the best paying combination in the game—a full screen of Jokers—releasing the Epic Joker Jackpot of 500x the stake.
