Master Joker is the latest in a series of fruit slots recently released by Pragmatic Play. The game immediately stands out with the 1 row 5 reel setup and you will see a wild and a bonus wheel of fortune above the regular reel. There are also some twists to this game, and it is by no means what you could call an ordinary fruit machine.
As I said, there is only a single row reel here, and you don’t even have to land adjacent symbols to win. That’s right, every win is a “scatter win”, and all you need to win is to land at least 3 matching symbols anywhere on the line. The game comes with a decent RTP of 96.46%, which is slightly above average, and this is a slot with high volatility (rating 5/5 on Pragmatics’ own volatility scale).
The main attraction is the multiplier bonus wheel, as this can lead to the game’s maximum win of 10,000 times the bet. It is triggered every time the wild is part of a win, which is not too often (we must say). The game requires some patience, and you can expect a lot of dead spins while waiting to trigger the multiplier feature.
What are the symbols?
The special thing about this game is that you only need three matching symbols on the single payline to win. You could say any symbol will bring you a “scatter win” as long as you land between 3 and 5. The purple 7 is by far the most valuable symbol, and here we present you the paytable for the Master Wild slot:
- Purple 7 – Pays 100x for 5 on a payline.
- Gold Bar – Pays 50x for 5 on a payline
- Watermelon – Pays 25x for 5 on a payline
- Plum – Pays 15x for 5 on a payline
- Cherries – Pays 12x for 5 on a payline
- Lemon – Pays 10x for 5 on a payline
- Strawberry – Pays 8x for 5 on a payline
What are the bonus features?
You won’t find too many bonus features in this game, but the few you do find have a high impact. The wild wild symbol is the one that everything revolves around here, and it only lands on the middle reel (that would be reel 3, in case you were wondering). Of course, it is wild and intervenes for all other symbols in a way that maximizes your winnings, but there is more to it than that.
For one, the wild can ensure that you win from 2 different combos on the same spin. If you land 2 plums on one side of the wild and 2 watermelons on the other, a double win will naturally occur. Normally in most slot machines you only get the highest paying combination, but not in this game (which is possibly why it is called the “Master Joker”).
Whenever you land a joker that is also part of a winning combination, the wheel of fortune that you see above the reels becomes active. The joker (who looks a bit scary) spins the wheel and lands on a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 15x, 25x, 50x or 100x. Whatever you won on the spin is increased by the multiplier you land on the bonus wheel.
Free Spins in Master Joker
You won’t find any free spins feature on the Master Joker slot, and we know that this might disappoint some players. However, this game is modeled after the classic slots and there is usually no such bonus round. Here, it’s all about the Joker Wild Win multiplier, and the good news is that it can lead to some very nice payouts.
What is the jackpot (maximum win)?
There is no progressive or fixed jackpot that can be won here, but you can still make some pretty massive payouts. The maximum win of the game comes when you place two 7-symbols on either side of the wild joker and get the 100x multiplier. This gives you the highest win of 10,000 bets, which is very solid even for a very volatile game. Play with the highest possible bet of €100 and you can pocket up to €1 in a single spin.
