The Joker might be the arch-enemy of Batman in the Caped Crusader’s endless stream of movies, cartoons and comics, but he can be your best friend in Net Entertainment’s Mega Joker Slot Machine. Mega Joker is an updated take on a classic slot machine that combines new and old elements, to make for a unique gaming experience.
The unique feature of Mega Joker in this progressive three-reel, five-pay line video slot is apparent to even the most casual player. There are two sets of reels at play, the bottom of which will be lit up from the time you begin. Coin values are either £0.10p or £0.20p per line with a
maximum bet of just £2.00 available. The aim of the game is to get 3 jokers, bells or fruits on a pay line which launches the bonus supermeter game.
Once you've lined up a Mega Joker win, you can either cash out or gain access to the top reels, also known as the Supermeter. The top reels are full of jokers, cherries, oranges and Lucky 7s, and have a substantially different pay table. Particularly if your on a max bet.
The top reels play much like the bottom reels, you use your winnings to try and win bigger prizes on the more lucrative reels. Beware though, as the cost of the top reels is significantly more than the lower. There are 2 sides to the top reels, the left and right. The left is half the size in bets than the right and pays half as much. You can swap sides anytime by pressing the "bet" button.
Anything less than 100 coins and you will play either 20 or 40 coins a spin. If you have 100 and are playing a max bet this allows you access to the Mega Joker random wild wins on the left hand side of the Supermeter. If you have over 200 coins and play a max bet you can play on the right hand side.
What these max bets do is give you the chance at winning random coin prizes for landing a single joker anywhere on the reels, anything from 100 - 2000 coins is paid out. This also gives you access to the Mega Joker Progressive Jackpot. The current value of which is available at the bottom of the screen.
Random Jackpot - Unique among classic style slots, Mega Joker slot machine has a randomized jackpot. The progressive jackpot has an initial payout of 2,000 coins. On the flip side, there are no scatter cards or wilds; the entire novelty of the game is the Supermeter function.
The screen of Mega Joker can be a bit intimidating to novice gamers, as it contains the entire pay table, a staggering array of jokers, fruits and numbers. And what appears to be a strange way to play the game. The game is a remake of an original genre known in Great Britain as a "Fruit Machine", or "Pub Fruity". Which are still massively popular slot games in the United Kingdom and are a staple in most pubs and bars.
