The Wombat says: A retro-looking slot with all the features of a brand new up-to-date game you say? Complete with fully Wild reels and a Re-spin Bonus?
Thanks NetEnt we don’t mind if we do! Joker Pro is a game from those NetEnt slot wizards (those nice people behind the Koi Princess slot machine) and they’ve really gone back to the old school. This Wombat can’t wait to get playing, so see you on the other side!
Look and Feel
Just as we’ve come to expect from NetEnt releases, Joker Pro looks pretty awesome. The graphics are simple – there are no animated characters, game intros or elaborate backgrounds here – but they are very well done and include 3D symbols and some super-fast seamlessly spinning reels. Crisp and clean, there’s no messing around in this slot which makes a nice change. It’s back to basics like some of their other games- Fruit Shop for example.
Joker Pro Slot Game Play
Joker Pro slot is your standard 5 reel, 3 row game with 10 paylines. Your flashy 3D symbols on the reels include such fruity classics as the 4 leaf clover, lucky horseshoes, golden bells, bars, lucky 7s and shiny shiny diamonds. Said diamond is the big baller in the game, and you’ll bag a rather generous payout of 200 coins if you land 5 of the beauties on your reels.
The Wild symbol in the game is the the flaming ‘Wild’ Logo and it will only appear on the middle 3 reels. As always, it substitutes for all the other symbols in the game to help you form winning combos. Bless those Wilds. The Wild also comes into its own during the Joker Pro Re-spins, but a bit more on that later…
The symbol you really want to land Wombat Fans, is the Jester’s hat. Yes, if this colourful little blighter ends up on either the second, third or fourth reels, you will set off the Joker Pro Re-Spins feature. And here is where you’ll find the big payouts!
During the Joker Pro Re-spins, reels 1 and 5 become fully wild, plus you’ll get 3 ‘Hot Spot Positions’ in the middle of reels 2, 3 and 4. If no extra wilds appear during this feature it ends and you will return to the main game.
BUT if a Wild should land during the Re-spin bonus, it will turn sticky – and you’ll get another re-spin. We’ve seen Sticky Wilds before – in the Lucky Angler slot for example, but these bad boys will just keep on coming until you get a spin that doesn’t turn up any new Wilds. Nice touch!
But here’s the best part of the Joker Pro Re-Spin; if you land 3 Wilds in a row across the Hot Spot Positions, you really will hit jackpot. Yes, the gift of 1,000x times your bet will be paid out to you. Happy happy happy days.
Joker Pro has fairly basic gameplay, and lacks the Bonus Features and multi level play of some other new slots, but we think the Respins and Sticky Wilds are good enough to make up for it. This Wombat likes the slick yet minimal design, and the souped-up classic fruit machine action that the game offers. Fancy something different? Then give Joker Pro slot a go. I looks great on a mobile and tablet too, register online and try our free demo.
This slot is Pro, we’re not joking.
Wombat score: 4/5
This slot is no longer available to UK players. Why not try Joker Reelz from Tom Horn Gaming instead?
Players from New Zealand and other countries can still play NetEnt’s Joker Pro pokie at Wombat Casino.
