The Mega Joker Slot by Novomatic
Mega Joker is an online fruit machine with 5 reels and 40 winning lines developed by Novomatic interactive Greentube. As the reels spin, you will have access to a Wild symbol, scatter and gambling game. You can try this slot in the demo mode. As the game loads, you get 500 credits that you can use to pay for the spins. The highest-paying combination in the Mega Joker slot is 5 scatter symbols.
Symbols and Multipliers in the Mega Joker Slot
The symbols in the Mega Joker slot machine powered by Novomatic are divided in two unequal groups: special and regular. The special symbols include the Wild and scatter symbols. You can find their detailed description in the Paytable section.
The Wild symbol is a picture of Joker. When showing up on a line, it replaces any regular symbol. So, you can create a combination if the same symbols are separated by an empty reel or enhance a combination with one symbol and get a large award. The Wild symbol cannot replace the scatter symbol only. What's more, if Joker appears on the first, second and third reel, it forms its own combination and earns you a payout according to the Paytable. As you play the maximum bet, you get the award such as:
- 3 Jokers - 80 credits
- 4 Jokers - 400 credits
- 5 Jokers - 4,000 credits
The scatter symbol is a picture of the star. It earns you payouts in credits only. It has an advantage over the regular symbols in that it does not depend on a pattern or arrangement on the reels and lines. It is the scatter that pays the highest award on the Mega Joker slot. With the maximum bet, you earn:
- 3 stars - 320 credits
- 4 stars - 1,600 credits
- 5 stars - 32,000 credits
The regular symbols are the classic pictures of the fruit machines. Set the Bet/Line figure to 2 credits and earn:
- Cherry, lemon, orange and plum - 8, 40 or 200 credits
- Watermelon and grapes - 16, 80 or 360 credits
- Pear and strawberry - 40, 120 or 480 credits
- Bronze seven, gold seven - 40, 160 or 800 credits
As you play with the maximum bet, the spin will cost 80 credits. Collect four or five symbols of the watermelon, grapes, pear, strawberry and seven to return it. Or you can collect some winning combinations on different lines.
The only available way to increase your award won in the main game is the double-up round. It becomes available when a winning combination appears on the game screen. The amount you can win depends on your bet per line in the gambling game: with 0.01 credits no more than 200 credits, with 2 credits no more than 40,000 credits. Note that the gambling game isn't available in the Autoplay mode even if a winning combination appears.
Click the Gamble button, which is on the control panel, to open the double or nothing game screen. In the new window you will see a face-down card and two buttons to choose its colour. Your history of choices of card colours and two information windows are above the card - Gamble amount is your prize for a spin that you bet on and Gamble to win is the amount of your winnings for the right choice of the colour. Your aim is to guess the card colour. The right answer will double your balance and a wrong answer will write off your award for the successful spin and return you to the main screen.
Rules of the Mega Joker Game
You get 500 credits to start the game as the page with Mega Joker loads. If you refresh the page, you will have 500 credits in your account, even if you had more before. As a first step before playing the game, you have to configure the settings.
At first you have to put your bet per line. To do this, click the + and - buttons in the Bet/ Line window. The minimum bet per line is 0.01 credits and the maximum bet is 2 credits. The amount of payouts for combinations of symbols depends on the line bet.
The next step is about winning lines. According to the rules of the Mega Joker slot, the award is given for combinations that appear on active lines. It means that while you play on 20 out of 40 available lines, the combinations on lines 1-20 are counted and ones on lines 21-40 aren't. To get familiar with the arrangement of the lines on the reels, click the numeric icons on both sides of the game screen To change the number of the lines, either click those icons or use the + and - buttons in the Lines window.
Both Bet/Line and Lines options produce your Total Bet - the total cost of a reelspin. If your balance is smaller than the total bet, the Start button becomes inactive.
You get the award for the combinations where the same symbols are on one active line, starting with the first reel. If the symbols are on the first, second, third and fifth reel, the payout is awarded only for the first three. These rules do not apply to combinations of the scatter symbols, and you earn the award for any combination appearing on the game screen.
You can find all symbols and the number of credits that you earn for combinations of different length in the paytable by clicking the Paytable button. By changing the bet per line, you can see how your prize changes.
You can start the reelspin in two modes - manually and automatically. Click the Start button to activate one spin. After the reels stop, the winning combinations are automatically highlighted and the payouts for all lines are added up. The Gamble button, which starts a round in the double or nothing game, becomes active. The Autoplay button starts the auto feature where the reels spin without interruption as long as there are credits in your account. You can stop the Autoplay option at any time.
There are some information windows on the control panel that help you to see your progress in the game:
- Credit displays your account
