Though there is no shortage these days of simpler slot machines, Joker Expand 5 Lines appears to be giving us more of the same, as a game that has a joker and fruit related theme and few features for us to explore. Its layout doesn’t appear to be too elaborate either. As for the developer that worked on it, we’re talking about Playson here, which has a good reputation for offering games of high production value.
The layout is pretty much revealed in the title, so you already know that it’s going to have 5 lines. You just need to know that it’s a slot with 5 reels. It’s going to offer rewards even of $50,000, but only if you use considerable wagers for each of those lines. As for the big features, they have expanding Joker wilds and scatters.
Betting and Prizes
The selection of the bet takes into account the value of the coins, but you always have the same number of coins in the bet, so that part doesn’t change. You start from the minimum bet of $0.10 and you get up to $100 at most. Bets of up to $20 for each line should be possible through these options.
We get a chance at payouts of just 500x the line bet in this game, so up to 2,500x if you manage to fill up the reels with the same symbols. That could turn into a jackpot of $50,000.
Joker Expand: 5 Lines Slot Features
Playson intended to create a very simple game in this case, and so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they got exactly that from it. It’s going to feature just a couple of lines, a regular fruit theme and as extras it will have a couple of symbols that end up behaving differently. It’s not something to get overly excited about though, unless you’re really into these simpler types of games.
First, let’s check out the feature that gave this slot its name. It’s got the image of a Joker for starters, and it’s a wild symbol that expands, so that explains the first part of the slot’s title. The expanding Joker will appear on a reel and will have the ability to expand on it and give you wilds on all three positions that are available there. It’s a female Joker as well, so it’s not the image that you expect to see from most such slots. The downside, the only one that I could find, is that it’s not actually appearing on all reels, only on the middle three ones. The result is that it can’t create a combo just with wilds alone and it can’t pay you by itself.
The only other feature implemented in the game is the scatter, and it’s not the kind of symbol that you have in other slots. It doesn’t give you a feature when it appears, only a cash prize that could reach 100x the stake in value.
Theme & Design
The lack of excitement that can be felt from the fruit theme of this game is mirrored by the feature list that I mentioned above. You get the Joker as a major symbol, a wild feature which expands, while the scatter will show off a Silver Star. Regular symbols in this game give you things like melons, grapes, lemons, cherries, oranges or plums.
Joker Expand 5 Lines has little to offer, but that’s probably the whole idea with it, to make it accessible to players that prefer simple gameplay.
