Jackpot Jester 200,000 Introduction
Jackpot Jester 50,000 was released in 2016 and is still available today. As the name suggests it has a max win of 50,000 coins, which translates to a top prize of €50,000. It's successor, Jackpot Jester 200,000, is a pimped up version with improved graphics and higher max win. These types of traditional Las Vegas-style fruit machines have been around for quite a while and there are several versions available online, one of the more popular being the progressive jackpot slot Mega Joker by NetEnt.
Jackpot Jester 200,000 is a 3-reel, 5-payline video slot with 2 reel sets powered by NextGen Gaming. It's playable on all devices from €0.10 to €20. It's a typical fruit slot jackpot machine, so if you've ever played one you've pretty much played them all.
There are 8 symbols present in the game. From low to high value, these are - cherry's, lemons, plums, strawberries, diamonds, bells, sevens and the top paying Jester wild symbol which is worth 100x for 3 across a line in regular mode. Just like with most of these games it comes with 2 different paytables - Bet 10 and Bet 20. Jackpot Jester 200,000 is all about the Super Game and to be able to activate it you have to choose the Bet 20 option. When you do - both the bet size and payouts are doubled, while also giving you a chance to transfer the game to the upper reel set to play the Super Game. The max win in regular mode is 100x.
Jackpot Jester 200,000 Super Game
To be able to transfer the game from the lower 3-reel matrix to the upper reel set player's have to choose the Bet 20 option. Whenever you have a win of 5x or more, you will be allowed to either collect your wins or activate the Super Game. In the Super Game, the bet size is multiplied by 5 and Jester Wild symbols come stacked full reels high. A full screen of Jesters here will award you an impressive 10,000x max win.
Jackpot Jester Conclusion
To be honest, we're not huge fans of these type of slots, but we know a lot of people like them. Maybe it's a nostalgia thing, or people just like the blinking lights. Either way, Jackpot Jester 200,000 is useless unless you activate the Bet 20, and to get anything out of it you have to land loads of Jester symbols in the Super Game...which you must try to initiate first.
Jackpot Jester 200,000 is a high variance slot with a relatively low RTP, ranging from 94.9% in regular mode and 95% in the Super Game. If, however, you enjoy playing these slots you will likely enjoy this one too. The max win is not bad by any means and the second best win of 2500x is not terrible either. We'll probably try it once it goes live, but not feeling super hyped about it.
