Juicy Joker: Mega Moolah Slot Review
Microgaming and Just For The Win are launching yet another online slot together, and this one’s especially noteworthy, due to its connection to the world’s biggest progressive jackpot network. Juicy Joker: Mega Moolah now joins a collection of games that have been responsible for a large number of prizes worth over £1 million, so if you want to become a millionaire, this is the type of slot you need to go after. They’ve chosen a more classic approach to the theme of this one, but graphics aside, you will find excellent features inside.
5 reels get to spin each round, and there are 20 lines active for the game area. Juicy Joker: Mega Moolah can deliver the usual progressive jackpots of the series, the best one being Mega, worth over £1 million. It also pays some much lower prizes on its own, offering as much as 500x the stake in a single spin. All this, and it has medium volatility, along with a fairly low 92.03% Return to Player. You might enjoy its features more, as they include several types of wilds, re-spins, free spins and bonus games with great potential.
Juicy Joker Mega Moolah Betting and Prizes
$0.10 is the absolute lowest wager that is permitted here. You can go quite a bit higher, to $10 even, but that’s it.
If we’re looking at rewards, the regular side of the slot machine doesn’t have a lot to offer. It’s understandable, since it has to leave room for a progressive jackpot as well. The result is a 500x top jackpot, in a game with medium volatility and a Return to Player which averages out at 92.03%.
If we’re checking out the game’s progressive jackpots, those are considerably more impressive. Part of the world’s biggest progressive jackpot, Mega Moolah, it can deliver wins worth over £1 million. It’s not a guarantee that you will get that one, it could be a lower prize, but there is that tiny chance of a life-changing jackpot as well.
If we look at the big features that are available in this one, I think you will be surprised at the options available. The game has three types of wilds, though it’s the regular one that you will see most often.
Diamond Wilds can show up on all reels if they come in the regular version, and they will form combinations which pay up to 25x the stake per line (500x total for a full screen).
3rd reel wilds can come in the form of special re-spin triggers. These get marked as Returning Wilds when they land, along with all the other wilds which are present. The re-spins continue if you keep getting new wilds, and once that stops, all those Returning Wilds will be brought back on the reels, for a final big round.
Scatters and free spins are also part of the game, and the former trigger the latter, whenever they show up three times in a single round. You get 9 initial rounds, where you collect the various wild symbols that can show up (by activating their positions, for later use). The Returning Wilds are brought back during the 10th round, being added on the reels in the positions that they activated previously.
The final feature is the Jackpot Wheel, which you can use to trigger regular and progressive jackpots. Access to it is available to all, but the odds are better when you use larger bets. You need the Joker symbol landing three times on the reels 2-4, to get access to this one.
Theme & Design
With a classic theme, which revolves around the Joker and a number of other older symbols, Juicy Joker fills a niche within the network, so that players with a taste for the oldies have something to play on. It’s OK in terms of design, nothing too special.
The list of symbols will range from Diamond Wilds, to Free Spins logos, Joker scatters, and then there are regulars such as Watermelons, Grapes, Oranges, Cherries, followed by the lowest paying icons, the four card suits.
Juicy Joker: Mega Moolah is not a particularly impressive addition to the slot series, but it has its own spot within it, and there will be players interested in its classic theme, or at the very least in its special features.
