Despite its 3-4-3-4-3 reel layout and stylish free spins round, Joker Stacks is heavily influenced by classic-style slots. The symbols (including 7s, cherries and bells) and upbeat, jazzy music are all throwbacks to those simpler times. It’s a fun, easy-to-play slot for players of any experience.
Joker Stacks is a medium-variance game, with semi-regular wins and occasional gouts of big money, even in the base game. It’s a 5-reel slot with a 3-4-3-4-3 layout, and offers the ability to wager between $0.15 and $15 per spin. This is pretty low for most modern slots, but not unplayable.
The symbols are what you would expect to find on a classic fruit machine:
- Cherries, melons and lemons
- Horse shoes
- Blue 7s
- Red 7s
The blue and red 7s are worth an almighty 125 and 150 times your stake respectively, making them the game’s most valuable standard symbols. Unlike traditional slots, there’s also the joker symbol – the wild! This substitutes for any other symbol if it can create a winning combination.
The wild can also become stacked on reels 1, 3 and 5, and this feature is activated randomly during play.
Free Spins Round
Players who land the gold star “bonus” symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 during a single spin are rewarded with a bonus round! You get 15 free spins, but can unlock more by collecting wild symbols as you play – check out the meter at the bottom to keep track!
Collecting six Jokers earns you two more spins, but also turns reel 1 completely wild. Earning another 10 wilds does the same for reel 3, and a further 10 will turn reel 5 wild too. Even a single wild reel is hugely powerful, but getting 2 or 3 will create jaw-dropping winnings.
If you enjoy classic slots but find them a little limiting compared to the bells and whistles of video slots, then Joker Stacks might be the perfect compromise. It’s light, fun, and packs a mean punch in the free spins round!
