It is no wonder why players keep on returning to the Mega Joker slot machine with its progressive jackpot potential and intriguing slot game layout. Any game with three paytables is sure to create some talk amongst players and while there are no Wilds or Scatters in play, the number of symbols and game modes help to make up for that obvious loss. The betting system is simple with three choices and then you are given one of two options in the Supermeter mode. Mega Joker from NetEnt is one of those classic-looking games that attracts all types of players. Sure, the layout might look busy at first glance but once you start playing, it all becomes glaringly obvious about what you need to do. The Jokers are your goal and spinning them will guarantee a worthwhile payout, and they might just trigger that progressive jackpot, too.
You start this video slot game by choosing your bet amount and this is done by selecting any one of the three Coin Value options in the bottom right-hand corner; 0.1, 0.2 or 1. You will notice the total coin bet amount change on the left and this will indicate how much you have left to play with. Take note that you will need to play the maximum bet amount of Coin Value 1 to qualify for the progressive jackpot.
The reels are set out in a very basic 3x3 slot grid and this comes with five fixed paylines in total. Each of the payline patterns can be seen on the reels and the corresponding symbol prizes can be seen to the paytable on the right. Match up any three of the symbols to trigger a winning prize and also your ticket to the Supermeter bonus round paytables at the top. We will explain the Supermeter later on, but now for the symbols.
The first set of symbols are to the right of the reels and these are linked to the base game. Cherries, Lemons, Watermelons, Bells, Treasure Chests, and the Jokers make up the symbols here and the prizes range from 20 coins to 400 coins when landing three matching symbols. Hit any one of those winning combinations and you will move up to the Supermeter mode, and here you can then access one of two paytables. Again, don’t go expecting any Mega Joker free spins here or Wild substituting powers from this bonus game.
So, you have the basic Supermeter paytable on the left and the other one on the right is the Mega Supermeter paytable. You will find some extra symbols in this mode and so the full list includes Cherries, Oranges, Lemons, Grapes, Watermelons, Bells, 7s, and then the highest value symbol, the Jokers. Depending on which paytable you play for, the prizes can range anywhere from 100 coins up to 2,000 coins in total during this bonus round. Next, we will explain how to play the Supermeter bonus round.
You may have already played a Supermeter mode before in other similar games to Mega Joker, but this particular Supermeter comes with a twist and some options. So, each win from the base game will allow you to either collect the winnings or transfer the winning amount to the Supermeter balance. We will take the decision that you want to play the bonus round and so now you will have a Supermeter balance ready to play with. You then have the choice to play either the Basic paytable or the Mega paytable, and you make your choice by clicking the Bet button.
The Basic paytable will cost you 20 coins per spin and the Mega paytable will cost you 40 coins per spin, and the prizes are obviously bigger if you go for the Mega option. You will need a balance of 40 coins or more to play the Mega paytable though, but you are free to swap between the two paytables whenever you want, as long as you have enough coins in your Supermeter balance. The Joker symbol can also trigger random prizes throughout the game when you land either one on the middle reel in Basic mode, or one more anywhere on the reels in Mega mode.
The Mega Joker RTP has been set to 99.00% and it is also known as a highly volatile slot. This means the game is a lot riskier than most and you may go through long spells before you hit any wins, so patience and a big enough bankroll is required.
