As you will quickly notice, Xmas Joker is a classic slot machine, at least if you go by the number of reels that are present inside, which is 3. However, there is also an incredibly good looking Christmas theme that is used by it, with tree decorations, with gingerbread men and candy cane being used as symbols. The slot’s 5 paylines come with a 96% RTP, which is better than what a real classic title will bring you, but not particularly impressive for an online variant. Regular symbols offer you up to $1,000, while scatters can do a lot better, even $10,000 being possible.
The Christmas theme is the main focus of the game, even though the Joker might sound like it’s the main character inside. While you will find the Joker in one symbol, the other six symbols are all Christmas related, for the most part things you would put in a tree or sweets that you would eat. The design quality is very high, and it’s one of the best looking classic slots that I’ve seen with this particular theme.
You don’t actually choose how many lines you want, or what the individual line bet should be. You click on the value of the total bet instead, or use the Minus and Plus buttons to arrive to the amount you’re comfortable with. The smallest one is $0.50 ($0.10 per line), while the largest one is $100 ($20 per line).
Two special feature icons are used, both scatters, but one is reserved for the base game and the other for the free spins. Get the Joker to appear three times, on the three reels, and you will be rewarded with 10 free spins.
While these free spins are in use, you can get Xmas Gift symbols, also scatters, which will give you prizes or retrigger the feature. If you have two or more Gifts, you will get a prize from them which is valued at anywhere between 1x and 100x the total bet value.
