Quickspin has another new slot on the way, this time intended for high rollers. Joker Strike is set to hit online and mobile casinos on April 10, 2018, and will be fully optimized for iPhone and iPad play, among other operating systems.
Slots experts like Lucky Mobile Slots have revealed more information about the new game, stating that it is well worth playing simply because it is such a unique concept for Quickspin. So far, it is known that the game’s design has a classic harlequin look to it, along with some attractive bonus features and an unusual Strike feature that can lead to big rewards.
According to LMS, players of Joker Strike could win up to 1,211x their bets in this medium to high variance game. The slot offers an RTP of 96.46%, which can increase to as much as 98.11% when it is played in Big Bet Mode. The game has a minimum stake of 0.10 and a maximum stake limit of 100.00 per spin, making it suitable for a wide range of budgets – although the biggest wins will only be triggered when playing at maximum stake.
The most notable feature in Joker Strike is that players will be given the chance at a second big win if they land a winning combination on the reels, should the wheel surrounding the reels land on that symbol. Big Bet options also allow for better bonus features and improved wins, and will be fully optimized for use on mobile devices as well.
LMS has already deemed the new game worth playing, although their experts are concerned that the slot may be geared more towards high rollers because of its Big Bet format. The ability to purchase extra features for a higher price will seemingly give high rollers an advantage when it comes to winning – but it is important to note that many slots have a similar premise, allowing players only to win the largest jackpots when playing at max stakes.
The slots experts have also pointed out that this is a well-known and classic theme from Quickspin, rather than an innovative and revolutionary one. Fans of joker-themed slots will no doubt appreciate Joker Strike, which offers card symbols, stars and jokers as its reel symbols. Of course, the Big Bet symbols that add extra wilds to the reels of the slot are an exciting new addition.
Considering all of this, Joker Strike may not offer a ground breaking new theme, but it still offers some unique and thrilling bonuses and many chances for players to win big – especially those with expendable bankrolls. For now, however, players will just have to wait and see what Joker Strike will add to their gaming experiences when it officially debuts on April 10.
