Jackpot Jester is no longer available for real play at Wombat Casino. Have you tried Joker Jester?
The wombat says: Sometimes Wombat Fans I have a terrible thirst on me, a thirst that can be only quenched by one thing: some amber nectar (otherwise known as apple juice to you people). When this happens, I have to grab my knapsack and get into my hiking boots on, as the nearest public house is 2-day journey from Wombat Towers.
And in this establishment that I frequent from time-to-time, there’s a beat up old slot machine or ‘pokie’, as folks call them here. Anyway, whilst making myself familiar with this game from NextGen- the people behind the Maid O’ Money slot, Irish Eyes and James Dean, I had think of this old pub veteran.
Look and Feel
Not that Jester Jackpot slot has a lot in common with those battered old relicts from the 90s (you know the one’s you only found in old men’s pubs when all you really wanted was a fag machine), but it is a minimalistic looking game, with a Vegas backdrop, a traditional vibe and some authentic slot sounds.
Jackpot Jester Game Play
Jackpot Jester slot has 3 reels, 3 rows and 5 pay-lines – in the base game that’s quite a few less than games like the Andre the Giant slot, and that’s because Jackpot Jester is a high variance game.
Your symbols on the reels follow the tradition of old-skool slots and feature your standard fruits (lemons and melons), the lucky seven, the bar symbol, the golden bell and the Jester which acts as Wild. So far, so unspectacular. If you want more culture head to the Cherry Blossoms slot machine, I mean, what were you expecting?!
However, on a second glance this online one-armed bandit is full of cheeky little surprises that got this wombat very excited.
It’s most striking feature is the 2 sets of reels. The lower one is the base game, and the upper set of reels make up the super bonus game. Every time you land a win in the regular game, the amount is transferred to your super game account. Now you can either chose to cash in your coffers, or you keep it tucked away in the super game account and play it there as soon as you’ve scooped 100 or more coins.
‘So what’s so ruddy super about the super game?’ I hear you ask. Well, first of all (unlike in the base game), the Jester Wilds are very active which means that the chances for big wins are much higher. And this Wild substitutes for all game symbols, no if or buts.
However, that’s not all all this (slightly sexy) Jester has to offer: if all 3 reels are completely covered with the stacked Jester Wild symbol, you’ll scoop the massive Jackpot of 50,000 coins. Happy days indeed!
As mentioned above, this an honest, down-to-earth slot that doesn’t need fancy animations or endless free spins. Instead, in this game offers the one thing that really matters to this Womabt: a massive Jackpot which equals plenty of cold hard cash.
Jester Jackpot is targeted at the hardcore slotters among us who like to go all in, and is high variance. If you’re more used to NetEnt or Microgaming releases with their cinematic intros, epics soundtracks and franchise themes, it might take you a while to warm up to this old bandit. But if you feel like a change, then you should definitely give this one a chance!
