Jester Spins is not a typical slot machine for the guys from Red Tiger Gaming, a developer that’s gotten us used to much more feature heavy titles and regular themes, rather than classic fruit icons and 3-reel setups like we get here. Still, I think you will want to see what they came up with, and what sets this game apart from others.
Take a look at Jester Spins and you will notice that it’s a slot with only 5 lines, using 3 reels that will spin each round. The unusual bit about it is that it offers free spins and scatter symbols, which is not expected of most classic titles. With its best rewards, the game can pay as much as 500x per win line, or up to 2,500x from a full screen ($20,000 jackpot).
Betting and Prizes
The betting system isn’t all that different from the usual options you get from other Red Tiger Gaming slots. You once again have the starting point at $0.20, which means that the minimum amount that goes to each line is $0.04. With the Total Stake reaching a top value of $40, the maximum line bet can be set to $8.
The prizes you see mentioned in the paytable area will give you the number of coins that are paid for each combo, so take into account the line bet for them, not the total bet. The 500x reward that can be obtained in a combo during free spins will pay $4,000, and since 5 lines are available, a screen filled with wilds will pay $20,000. A 500x jackpot is not that impressive, but Red Tiger Gaming rarely excels at offering convincing top rewards in their games.
Jester Spins Slot Features
When a game doesn’t give you big jackpots, often enough it will be because it will have the features to make up for that. Jester Spins isn’t that kind of slot though, and about the only thing that you can expect from it feature wise is to get a scatter symbol to trigger free spins for you.
The Jester symbol will be the star in this case, by which I mean that with three present in the base game, you get 10 free spins in exchange. Once inside the free spins, there are rewards of up to 50x given when you have two Jesters, or up to 500x when there are three such symbols. You get the jackpot of the slot through them, but first you need to be in the free spins mode.
Theme & Design
The theme is one that’s based on the classic fruit and jester combo, these symbols being used in much more dated form in countless other slots. The one we’re looking at here is a modern design though, and quite pretty to look at, not something I’m used to saying about fruit themed games to be honest. The Jester’s Hat will be the in main role, followed closely by Fire 7 with its 100x payout. A Golden Star, a Bell, Watermelons, Grapes, Plums and Cherries are the rest of the symbols that you get. As you can see, there aren’t that many symbols present on those reels, which is a plus since that means it’s going to be easier to form combinations.
Jester Spins is not going to be the best classic fruit themed slot around, but it has better graphics than most and it offers free spins, which is rare enough in this category.
