The Joker Strikes at House of Jack

April 16, 2018


Quite a few new online pokies featuring the joker or jester have been launched this month. Many of them have been late for April Fools’ Day, but that does not matter in the long term. One such video pokie is Joker Strike from Quickspin. It is live at Australian online casinos like House of Jack. Joker Strike has some interesting high roller options that bring into play lucrative features for larger bets.

Joker Strike is a 5×3 online pokie with 10 paylines. The maximum total bet per spin is AU$100 without the high roller features. The artwork is minimalistic but colourful and elegant. The symbols that award line payouts are joker, seven, star, bell and the four playing card suits. The Wild logo is the wild symbol. It also awards line payouts. The Joker Strike Feature is available for all bets and is automatically activated on any payline win. There is an outer wheel on the border of the reels that contains all the symbols. It comes into play in the Joker Strike feature. It adds symbols to the reels if the indicator in the outer wheel stops at a winning symbol. Three-of-a-kind win adds 6 extra symbols. Four-of-a-kind win adds 8 extra symbols. Five-of-a-kind win adds 10 extra symbols. Payouts are again awarded.

There are three different high roller modes each consisting of five spins. You will need to place the corresponding extra wager to activate a particular mode. Then for the next five spins you will have access to the additional feature offered. As in all such high roller features there is no guarantee of winning, only the increased likelihood of winning larger amounts. In addition to the specific features offered, the line payouts are also considerably enhanced. The Joker Strike feature will continue to operate.

The Guaranteed Wild will cost an additional AU$20 over the total bet. In each spin a wild symbol will be added to the reels. A wild symbol moves clockwise around the reels and will stay on the position it occupies when the reels stop. The Wild Strike feature will cost an additional $AU30. Two wild symbols are added to the outer wheel. If the indicator stops on any of these symbols then the Joker Strike feature will add wild symbols. The Double Chance feature will cost an additional AU$50. An extra indicator will move on the outer wheel, giving two chances for the Joker Strike feature to be successful.
