A Mega Old School Slot Game
Mega Joker, from Novoline, not to be confused with the jackpot slot of the same name from NetEnt, is an old school style slot game. It has 40 paylines which is quite unusual for a retro slot! Normally slots with this classic theme have only 5 or 10 paylines. With this jokerrific slot, you will play on 5 reels and there are 40 paylines! The RTP is over 95% so, your chances of winning are mega high. The main theme colours of this slot are red and yellow. In fact, most of the colours in the design of the game are prime colours, which adds to the retro feel of the slot. The Novomatic joker in this slot shows up in many other slots on the Novoline platform. He’s a well-known mascot of Novoline games! You’ll see this jolly joker symbol in Lucky Jolly and many other Novomatic slots. The Joker is joined by several other traditional slot machine symbols, including the famous fruits, sevens and stars. Novomatic’s Mega Joker doesn’t have any free games or bonus rounds. Sometimes, though, bonus features are all frill and no substance. With Mega Joker, you’ll feel like you’re playing a proper slot and that you’re getting proper wins.
Classic Symbols for a Classic Slot
Did you know that back in the day, before slot machines used to pay money, they gave sweets and gum as prizes? If you’ve ever wondered why slots have fruit symbols, then there is your answer. The fruit symbols used to represent the flavour of the sweet prize you would win if you matched up enough symbols. The idea stuck even now that slot machines no longer give out fruity treats to winners. The fruit symbols in Mega Joker have been designed in true Novoline style. A lot of their games have fruit symbols with similar designs. In this retro game, you will need to try and match up the cherries, watermelons, lemons, plums, oranges, grapes, strawberries and pear symbols. The pear is a bit of an oddball! As well as these juicy fruits, there are two seven symbols: a red seven and a golden seven. In addition, two extra symbols will show up on the reels and these symbols pay out huge wins! One of the special symbols is the joker and the other is a golden star.
The Joker and Other Features
The joker in Mega Joker is the Wild. Wild symbols are very common in Novoline slots and slots from other slot makers as well. A Wild symbol can help you complete a win. In Mega Joker, the minimum payout you can get is for three matching symbols. You can get higher payouts for four matching symbols and five matching symbols. For you to get the payout, the matching symbols must land on one or more of the 40 paylines. Because the paylines pay one way (from left to right), the first symbol of the combination must land on reel 1 (the leftmost reel). Then, the other symbols have to land on successive reels, following the path of a payline. If they don’t follow a payline or the matching symbols skip a reel, you won’t get the win. This is where the Wild symbol can help. If it falls in a gap or at the beginning or the end of a winning combination, it can act like the other matching symbols to complete the win! The Wild symbol in Mega Joker can act as a substitute for the sevens and the fruit symbols, but not for the golden star Scatter. The Scatter symbol can land anywhere and still pay, as long as three or more land in any position on any of the reels.
