New Tom Horn Online Slot Game: Joker Reelz
Tom Horn Gaming prepared for 2020 to be a year on ingenuity and separating itself further from its competition. Instead of releasing new games every week, the company focuses on unique games when they are ready. Book of Ba: The Secret of the Netherworld was its most recent online slot release until this month’s introduction of Joker Reelz.
Joker Reelz is No Joke
The neon colors and upbeat music soundtrack create a game that appeals to those looking for an exciting game. The male and female jokers are ready to guide players through the game, which is set against an outer space background.
The music has a disco feel but with a relaxing subtlety that allows it to blend into the game. And the colors are neon, but the blue reels are set on a purple background, making for a somewhat calming scene.
Amidst what can feel a bit like a circus of colors and characters, the features stand out. Joker Spins and Towering Reels keep the action moving.
The RTP (return-to-player) is 96%, and it is a low volatility game. More winnings make it easy to continue playing for long periods without losing too much money.
Joker Reelz has five reels and three rows (without Towering Reels) and nine paylines.
Payouts for Joker Reelz
The lowest bet on the game is $0.50 per spin, but that is for all nine lines. Higher bets offer $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $25, and $50. The $100 bet per spin is the max bet.
Joker Reelz is interesting as players can simply click on any symbol on the grid to see the payouts for three, four, or five of that symbol on a payline. Most game developers don’t offer this option.
We also provide that information here, for all of the available symbols with five on a payline:
- Gold star = 50x
- Red seven = 15x
- Pink bell = 12x
- Bar on orange background = 5x
- Pink heart = 2x
- Blue diamond = 2x
- Blue club = 1x
- Green spade = 1x
All wins are multiplied by the total bet and paid left to right.
The max win available is 250x the total bet.
Joker Reelz Features and Gameplay
The feature players will hope to see often is the Joker Wild. It substitutes for all other symbols and triggers the Joker Respins feature. Each wild equals one respin, and they can be triggered again during the Joker Spin.
When a spin hits a wild, the female joker appears to the left of the grid to facilitate the respin.
It’s important to note that the size of the Joker Wild matters. If he takes up a 3×3 space on the grid, that is nine spaces and nine respins. The bigger the joker, the more spins he brings.
Also, remember that a respin does not guarantee a payout. The joker does not stick around – no symbols remain – as the respin brings all new symbols.
The other main feature is the Towering Reel. Two or three reels can combine randomly to create a giant wheel. It can happen during any spin (and does happen on most) and create more winning opportunities. One symbol can grow to comprise a 3×3 space, consuming most of the grid with just one symbol.
As an important aside, Joker Reelz is one of the few games in Aussie online casinos that offers game recovery. Should the player quit the game while it is in progress and that spin hit a payline, that payout will be restored when the player revisits the game. Along the same lines, if a player must close the game during respins, they will remain intact for the next time the player opens it.
Where to Play Joker Reelz
When this appears at your favourite online casino, take a minute to check it out. The payouts can be lucrative, and the Towering Reels make every spin different. It spices things up.
Joker Reelz is now featured in the King Johnnie Casino and Joka Room promotions sections as new games. Since it was just released on May 6, players should find it in the “new games” section for awhile as well.
