40 Joker Staxx

 

40 Joker Staxx (also sometimes referred to as 40 Joker Staxx: 40 Lines) is one of many Playson slots to feature jester/joker icons, and a simple classic slot theme worked over the 5 reels of a traditional video slot game. As its title suggests, stacked icons are the order of the day in this release, which is also one of the more elementary releases you may find in the casino world.

Playson are the developers behind this release, which although it doesn’t allow players to alter the number of lines in the game, does at least provide cheap bets. Wagers range from a floor of just 20p per spin and can rise as high as £100 a game at times. It is almost as if players are getting a two-for-one promo on paylines in this slot, which carries a non-progressive jackpot that is pegged at around 800 coins in all.

Special features

Don’t expect overly complicated special features in 40 Joker Staxx, for those which appear in the slot are basic at best. The game features fruit symbols aplenty, though, and they can all dish out decent wins in relation to your bets. However, some symbols are slightly more valuable than others.

The joker (or jester, if you prefer) appears as a woman, and she can substitute for any other icons you may need to snap up a win, save for scatter symbols. Wilds can appear on all the reels of this slot. Wild symbols can pop up as stacked icons on the reels, and as you might imagine, these help no end towards bagging big wins.

Scatter themselves appear on all the reels, too. Players who land 3, 4 or 5 such symbols anywhere on the screen during a base game spin will pocket 1x, 5x or 40x their bet in scattered cash prizes.

Bonus features

Ordinarily, if you were to land 3 or more scatters in virtually any video slot, you would expect to be enjoying a free spin bonus or at least a click and win prize game shortly afterwards. This doesn’t happen in 40 Joker Staxx. Instead, this game merely pays out its scattered cash prizes and move on. There is no free spin bonuses, no instant win feature – nothing.

Overview

To be frank, the lack of any bonus rounds will hurt this slot’s chances of being a notable success story. 40 Joker Staxx is just a more advanced version of the other classic fruit machines bearing the Joker Staxx name from Playson. What players are looking at here is a glorified fruit machine, but one played over 5 reels, with a surplus of lines and stacked would symbols. Still, if you’re the type of slot player who gets their rocks off playing classic slots and fruit machines, the chance to play one with a few (and we mean a few) added perks woven into its design might be an opportunity you wish to grasp with both hands.
