Jackpot Jester

There are three Jackpot Jester slot games out there for you to play, and both come from NextGen Gaming’s arsenal. The first was launched way back in 2013 and is known as Jackpot Jester 50,000. This was followed by Jackpot Jester: Wild Nudge. The most recent game – Jackpot Jester 200,000 – made its debut in 2018. All the games feature similar action and are based on classic slot machine games albeit with a few twists thrown in. Expect classic slots, video slots and fruit machine action all rolled into one with this game. 

Jackpot Jester 200,000 is played over 3 reels like its sister slots, but there are 5 paylines for players to bet on. A spin will cost a modest 10p a turn, and that’s not too shabby when players consider that they can win up to 200,000 coins in this release, as its title suggests. Maximum bets do not exceed £20 a spin. Players will note that there are two sets of reels in this game. The base game reels are those on the bottom, while those on the top are for the Super Game, which we will explain in just a moment. 

Special Features 

Most of the symbols which appear on the reels of this slot wouldn’t look out of place in a standard fruit machine. There are fruit symbols aplenty, including cherries and plums, but also diamonds, sevens and bells. Players will want to keep their eyes peeled for the titular jester. This joker character acts as a wild symbol and can substitute for all other symbols.  

Players can wager either 10 or 20 coins in this game. Wagering with 20 coins active can see players potentially trigger the Super Game. Following a win, players who have wagered the necessary number of coins can transfer their winnings over to the Super Game, where they may have a chance to play for larger prizes. If they opt not to do this, they can collect their win and gameplay continues via the base game reels. 

Bonus Features 

Once the Super Game reels are active, players are going to need to place additional bets. Each Super Game spin costs 100 coins, but the prizes available are substantially more profitable than on the lower reels. Jesters count as scatter icons in this round and landing nine of them in every spot on the reels will see the non-progressive jackpot of 200,000 coins paid out. Players can opt to transfer their winnings back down to the base game (to collect them) at any time following a spin on the Super Game. 

Overview 

Jackpot Jester 200,000 doesn’t really bring anything new to the table that can’t be found in its 50,000 or Wild Nudge sister slots. However, there are substantially more valuable prizes up for grabs in this game. It does cost a touch more than the other two releases at our casino, but you get what you pay for. A simple slot game, Jackpot Jester 200,000 has much in common with the “pub fruities” of old.
