As the saying goes, ‘Christmas comes but once a year’, but with Play ‘n GO’s Xmas Joker slots you can enjoy all the trappings of the festive season all year round. Launched in 2015, Xmas Joker is another Christmas themed slot game to add to the already lengthy list of similar yuletide games.
Xmas Joker is available to play on many different devices and is available on iPhones and Android devices as well as desktop computers and laptops and is available to play at Casino77.com.
This is a medium volatility game with a Return to Player percentage of a generous 96.98%, and comes with three reels and five paylines, and allows the user to change the coin value from 10p to £2. There is also an autoplay option, that allows you to set the number of continuous spins up to a maximum of 100.
Visually, the game comes with all the yuletide animations and symbols you would expect from a Christmas themed game. The reels are set on a stripy green wallpaper, and this is decorated with red ribbon and gold bells, and the reels themselves are encased by red and white striped candy sticks, whilst the paylines are denoted with numbers in white icing on a circular gingerbread biscuit.
The symbols are represented by gingerbread men, blue bows, a bauble with holly, golden bells and stars. The most important symbol of all is the joker icon and landing three of these will launch the free spins bonus feature.
Because this game is a 3-reel game, you only need to land three of any symbols to gain a payout, with three gingerbread men or blue bows rewarding you with 10 coins, the bauble and holly 30 coins, three bells, 40 coins, and three stars 50. If you fill all the reels with star symbols, then you will win 250 coins.
However, for those of you who like wild symbols, you are going to be disappointed as there are no wild symbols in this game.
As this is rather a basic slot game, Xmas Joker only comes with one bonus feature and that is the Free Spins feature triggered when you land the three joker symbols. You will receive 10 free spins, but this feature can be triggered again and again up to a maximum of 50 free spins.
Once you are into the free spins feature you need to look out for the Xmas gifts symbol as landing just two of these give you the potential to win from 1x to 100x your initial stake.
There is no doubt that playing Xmas Joker will instantly get you into the Christmas spirit, and this Play ‘n GO release is a fun game to play if a little bit sparse on bonus features, so may appeal to the more casual gamer. Having only three reels means that small wins are easier to come by, but in order to land bigger winnings, you really need to trigger the Free Spins feature.
