The game uses two reels sets, but initially you will play at the bottom one. It features 3 reels and 5 fixed paylines and you are supposed to cover one of the paylines with symbols of a kind to win a prize. You can wager either 1 or 10 coins per spins at the coin denomination ranging between R0.20 and R10. Once you choose your total stake which can be anywhere between R0.20 and R100, push the spin button. On the left and right hand side of the reels you will see the possible winnings, so the higher the bet the bigger the prize. Match cherries, lemons, watermelons, bells and treasure chests along a paying line to hit a win and unlock the Jumbo Meter mode for more lucrative payouts.
To activate the Jumbo Meter mode you need to win of at least 20 coins in the base game. Your winnings from the bottom reels will be transferred to the Jumbo Meter and available for further wagering, but if you are satisfied with the amount you have scored you can cash them in as well. You can adjust your stake for the round on the upper reel set just like the regular one, by pushing the + and – buttons. Playing at the upper reels can result in higher payouts and Mystery Prizes ranging between 100 and 2,000 coins. Mystery Prizes can be won while playing at the wager of 100 or 200 coins when Joker symbols align to award on of the prizes.
The Jumbo Joker slot may remind you of the 2012 NetEnt release Super Nudge 6000 which also uses two reel sets and awards mystery wins. Two reel sets and a chance of winning higher payouts may add some excitement to the gameplay, but it can be a tricky business as you have to gamble your winnings or part of them in order to play this bonus game. This explains why Betsoft haven’t incorporated its standard Double Up feature in this game. Jumbo Joker can be played on your desktop or mobile device, so if you are looking for a classic slot which offers additions to the base game, give it a try. Our rating: 82/100
