The Joker Hot Reels slot comes with 5 reels, 3 rows and 5 fixed paylines. More importantly, winning combinations pay from left to right and right to left meaning it’s a win both ways slot. You need matching symbols from left to right starting on reel 1 or from right to left starting on reel 5 to get a winning combination.
Stake levels cater to all bankrolls as you can play from 5p to £500 per spin. With a Turbo Mode available for quicker spins, there’s also an Auto Play function where you can opt for up to 100 autospins. You can also play until you trigger a bonus feature. But please note that autoplay and turbo mode is only available for players outside the UK.
The Joker Hot Reels RTP is 95.51% overall. The RTP without the jackpot element is 94.52% meaning 0.99% is for the 2 progressive jackpots. Medium to high variance, most wins will be medium to high size but won’t land as frequently as a slot with lower variance.
Jackpots aside, the max win is 6,000 x your stake in 1 spin, which is quite generous.
The Joker Hot Reels slot has a slot machine theme and is as simple as they come. Based on a joker, you will see flames in the backdrop. Visually, it’s very basic but that’s the intention. The sounds are also simple and will remind you of an old-school fruit machine.
On the reels, you will see classic slot symbols. There are cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, grapes and watermelons. Then you have a flaming lucky red 7 symbol which is the most valuable. 3, 4 or 5 in combination pays 10, 40 or 300 x your total stake respectively.
The Joker symbol is the wild. As well as substituting for all symbols to make the best possible winning outcome, it appears on all 5 reels. However, it only appears stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the 3 middle reels). 5 wilds in combination will pay 300 x your total stake.
Despite being basic visually, Joker Hot Reels can be played on mobile, tablet and desktop devices. The simple 5×3 reel layout works well on smartphone screens and it’s an enjoyable slot to play on smaller devices.
The Joker Hot Reels slot comes with 2 bonus features. First, you have the Joker’s Respins where stacked wilds give you respins. This can lead to 3 fully wild reels in play. Then there’s the Joker Jackpot feature where any spin can randomly give you 1 of 2 progressive jackpots. Let’s explain them both in more depth.
Landing a stack of Joker wilds on reels 2, 3 or 4 will trigger the Joker’s Respins feature. You will then get 3 respins with the wild stack frozen in place. If you land another stack of Joker wilds, it will become frozen. This can lead to 3 stacks of Joker wilds or 3 wild reels.
The Joker Jackpot feature is randomly triggered. This will lead to you winning either the Mini or Grand Jackpot. Both jackpots are progressive with the Grand Jackpot being the biggest.
