Joker's Jewels Wild: Slot Overview

Nostalgia for the past is an intoxicating emotion. Just remember how great the world used to be before x, y, and z happened? Shoot, in the not-so-distant past, someone who worked in a shoe store could own a house, a car and support a wife, two kids, and a dog. These days... Oh wait, that's the TV show Married With Children, which might not have been real... The point is the objective past may not have been quite as great as our memories make it out to be, and helpfully, here is Pragmatic Play's online slot, Joker's Jewels Wild, to test the theory.

This is because Joker's Jewels Wild is like stepping back to another age of gambling. It's presented as if (with a healthy dose of imagination) you are standing before a physical machine about to yank on a lever to push a set of reels into motion. If that seems like a stretch, then lists of symbol values above the reels help reinforce Joker's Jewels Wild's classic slot credentials. This is back-to-basics gaming, light on extras, a vehicle to provide a wee trip back to an earlier era of betting.

Joker's Jewels Wild slot by Pragmatic Play

Joker's Jewels Wild has 5 diamond patterned reels, landing 3 symbols on each of them. In the spirit of keeping things basic and bare, there are just 5 paylines for landing regular line wins on. It is a medium volatile device, Pragmatic Play has given the math model a 3 out of 5 rating in this area. The default theoretical RTP is quite high, that's something Joker's Jewels Wild has going for it, generating a figure of 96.58%. The stake range is wide, as it usually is in a Pragmatic Play slot, where thanks to the 5 paylines, bets start at 5 c and go up to $/€250 per spin.

All regular pay symbols award a win when 3 or more (2 or more of the highest value symbol type) land on adjacent reels beginning on the leftmost reel. From bottom to top, we find diamonds, green gems, blue orbs, light blue gems, bells, joker shoes, juggling pins, and lutes. Landing lines of 5 matching gemstone symbols pays 20 times the bet, or landing 5 OAK matching high pay symbols awards 40 to 600 times the bet. Wilds may be used to substitute any of the regular paying symbols, and when a wild symbol hits, it expands to entirely cover the reel it is on.

As well as the expanding wild, the closest things in Joker's Jewels Wild resembling extra features are its star-shaped scatter symbol and its crown scatter symbol. The star-shaped scatter is present on the leftmost, the middle, and the rightmost reel, and if 3 of them land in view, players win a 20x the bet prize. The crown scatter hits on all reels, and landing 3, 4, or 5 of them pays 3x, 20x, or 100x the bet, respectively.

Joker's Jewels Wild: Slot Verdict

Brah, there's not much to Joker's Jewels Wild, is there, and no doubt that is Pragmatic Play's point - as it was when the studio made the similar functioning slot Tucanito. The game provides an outlet for gamblers aching to escape from modern, hyper convoluted, frighteningly volatile, tortuously Daedalian online slots to get right old back to basics. If that's on your to-do list, then oh yeah, Joker's Jewels Wild's got you. It's practically featureless; well, there's no bonus round to speak of and the extras, such as they are, amount to prize pay scatter symbols and an expanding wild. Meh, pretty middling if you're used to richly designed games, and outside of keeping your eyes peeled for big line wins from the lute, there isn't much else to do. Nothing really, except for maybe pondering the bizarre mix of 1,420x the bet max win, and a 1 in 37,729,144 max win frequency.

In other words, this won't be for everyone, though it is hard to deny Pragmatic Play probably achieved its objectives when making Joker's Jewels Wild. It's certainly able to cater to people who ache for the past's so-called simplicity, an early time when we were younger, more virile, more hopeful, looking forward rather than backwards, excited about what the future may bring. Nostalgia is a powerful drug, after all, but at the same time, former US Ambassador to the United Nations, Geroge Wildman Ball, did say that 'Nostalgia is a seductive liar.' A quote that popped out while reviewing Joker's Jewels Wild.

Mediocre

Joker’s Jewels Wild plays the part of a rudimentary classic slot to a tee, but a lack of depth puts a question mark on its shelf life.
