Enjoy a retro-themed slot with a bright new style in the Joker 3600 video slot game from Kalamba Games. There are old-school symbols that players will recognise from fruit machines, but there’s much more on offer here. Together with the regular payouts, there are progressive jackpots, so the reels are loaded with potential.
The design has a slightly psychedelic look, a long way from Kalamba’s usual intricate style. With neon gridlines and a sparse background, it almost feels as if you’ve entered the matrix with glowing symbols and signs in sharp contrast to the black and purple space.
The reels are also lit up with a neon frame, with the joker appearing in silhouette at the top. The slot is set up with a 5-4-3-3-4-5 layout which includes 3600 ways to win – as the name suggests! The betting range is huge, starting at 0.6 and climbing to 600.00, so there’s an entry point for all players.
The theoretical RTP is above the average at 96.6% but can be boosted higher by opting for one of the HyperBonus selections (only for players outside the UK). Volatility is high, so there could be a low strike rate, but there is also a higher chance of a larger win.
Like many joker slots, the reels are loaded with fruity goodness, which will be a blast from the past for many players. The low pays are made up of pineapple, grapes, cherries, lemon, watermelon and plums, while the high pays are a series of Lucky 7s and diamonds. The gold illuminated is the wild which can substitute for any of the above symbols to make a match.
There are some bonus symbols on the reels too, and these can unlock some of the extra features.
The pink and white bonus symbol is the scatter and landing three at once will trigger the free spins round. It’s possible to win between six and 20 free spins, depending on the number of scatters you land. During the free spins round, the normal wild symbols are replaced with multiplier wilds of either x2 or x3. You can retrigger the bonus by landing two or more scatters during the free spins.
Bonus Cashpots are also available for landing 12 or more wild jokers and/or diamonds on the board. These are progressive prizes, so the longer you play without a win, the higher the prize will climb. The x2 and x3 jokers that land during free spins will count as two or three, respectively. Twelve or more jokers and diamonds are needed to trigger the Silver Cashpots, 14 for Gold, and 16 for Platinum.
The HyperBonus option is available to players outside the UK and provides instant access to the free spins round, for a cost.
