Joker Expand Slot From Playson Adds Extra Features To A Classic Fruit MachinePublished July 29, 2018 by Arthur M
Joker Expand: 5-lines is a new slot game from Playson that takes the traditional fruit machine format and adds extra features, headed by expanding wild symbols
The newest slot game from Playson is a fruit machine with a difference. Joker Expand: 5-lines is filled with cherries, plums, grapes and watermelons, but comes with a special wild symbol that can complete winning combinations and be seen stretched over several reels at once.
A Happy Harlequin
A deep red background contrasts nicely with the colourful symbols of fruit that appear on the reels in a 5x3 grid. It looks stylish on desktop and mobile platforms.
In the basic games, players will need 3 or more matching symbols across any of the 5 paylines to claim a win, and the rewards for landing the red 7 symbol are 500x the total stake when it stops across all 5 reels.
Gold and Diamond stars both act as scatter symbols, paying out prizes without having to be on a payline. It's the Joker who gives players the last laugh when he appears on reels 2, 3, or 4, as this is a wild symbol that can act as others, apart from the scatters, and complete extra winning combinations.
Stretching Out Winnings
The Joker is first seen in a single symbol position, which can then expand across the whole reel, making it easier for players to complete lines of matching symbols. If multiple Joker wild symbols appeared on different reels in the same spin, they will all expand, filling the middle section of the game and creating multiple 4 of a kind winning lines at once.
The straightforward gameplay suits the fruit machine style, but having the special Joker symbol adds extra winning opportunities for players. Animated flames and showers of coins are there to celebrate big wins and the soundtrack consists of mechanical effects, with flourishes of music when winning lines are landed.
Punters are offered a wide range of bet sizes and it has a Return to Player percentage of 96.50%. Joker Expand: 5-lines is available at Playson online casinos.
