New video slot from the masters at NetEnt
What do these events have in common: volleyball was invented in Massachusetts (1895), Giuseppe Verdi’s opera ‘Falstaff’ premieres in Milan (1893) and the Tom Cruise film (just as he was starting to get really weird) ‘Magnolia’ won the Golden Beat at the Berlin Film Festival (2000)?
The answer is that they all happened on the 9th of February. And what’s significant about that date (I hear you ask)? It’s the day that in 2017 NetEnt release their new slot Joker Pro.
NetEnt is of course one of the big players amongst slot providers. Not only did they make arguably the two most famous online slots in the world – Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest – but they’re also responsible for others that would enter any discussion about the best-known slots out there. Games like Guns N’Roses, Jack Hammer, Warlords, Aloha and Mega Fortune, probably the most talked-about Jackpot of them all.
I was lucky enough to be allowed to play Joker Pro at NetEnt’s Head Office. I was admittedly only allowed to play it for half an hour and I was not completely sure that it was necessary to have a bouncer supervising us while I played it. But there you go.
When it’s launched it will be available on both desktop and mobile, of course. And if the suspense is killing you, here’s what I can tell you about it prior to launch…
Old meets new…to good effect in Joker Pro slot
The best way to describe this slot is to say it’s a sort of ‘old meets new.’
On the one hand, it’s as much of a classic slot set-up as you can get. A 5×3 reel slot with old-school Bar symbols, 7s and bells that look like something out of a fruit machine in an old English pub. That you’d play with a pint of warm beer in your hand. What’s that all about, by the way? ‘I’ll have a warm one please, mate.’ Just doesn’t have the same ring to it as ‘just grab me a cool one, will you?’
But what do you expect from a nation that puts vinegar on chips?
Anyway, where were was I? Oh yeah… so that’s the ‘old’ element to it but the symbols have an extremely clean, polished and modern look to them. It’s quite a nice mixture. Like sweet and sour pork. Or cronuts (yeah, it’s a thing. A cross between a croissant and a doughnut.). Or those movies that Bruce Willis used to make in the 90s that were part action and part comedy.
I miss them.
There’s clearly a bit of a ‘luck’ theme to the slot because other symbols include a lucky horseshoe and a four-leaf clover. Then there’s a Diamond and of course the Joker’s hat. More on that later.
You’ll need to get between three and five of the same symbol to secure a win.
As you’d expect, all the other usual options are there, too. Meaning you can adjust your bet size, place the Maximum Bet at the press of a button or select the Autoplay function if you’re feeling a tad lazy.
Have the last laugh with the Sticky Wild Re-Spin feature
NetEnt clearly went out to create an uncomplicated slot because…there’s only one Joker Pro feature to talk about.
And surprise surprise, it all centres around a Joker.
But let’s talk about the feature.
Sticky Wild Re-Spin feature
If you get the Joker’s Hat anywhere on the reels, you’ll activate the Sticky Wild Respins.
Want to know the best part about getting them? When you activate them there’s a guy who has a very deep voice (a bit like the voice-overs in movie trailers or the one who announces the prizes on TV game shows) says ‘Stickkkkkky Wild’ and then ‘Reeeeeeeee-spins.’ It’s class.
What happens here is that Reels 1 and 5 become Wild whilst Reels 2, 3 and 4 spin. The Wilds on those two reels almost guarantee that you’ll walk away with something decent.
It’s a bit like watching a Woody Allen film. You’re almost guaranteed that it’s going to be good.
You also have the chance to re-trigger the free spins.
It may sound obvious but how many times you get to hear that deep voice ahead of Sticky Wild re-spins will be the difference between a lean spell and on the game and having the last laugh against the Joker Pro himself.
It will be here on February 9th…no joke
So that’s the slot in a nutshell. There’s been a tendency over the past six months or so for the big game providers to either go ‘retro’ or to go in the completely opposite direction and go all guns blazing with 3D graphics and endless bonus features and. So it’s kinda fun that with Joker Pro, NetEnt have decided to make an entertaining, easy-to-play and fun slot that’s somewhere in between the two extremes.
I can’t promise that Verdi will premiere another Opera or that another world-famous sport will be invented on the 9th February. But I can promise that you’ll be able to play Joker Pro right here at G2G free online slot section that day.
