Joker’s Luck – One Reel, Huge Winnings
Start the New Year correctly with a bit of Joker’s Luck on your side. The slot from Skywind is an interesting game as it only has a single reel and one payline. Above the reel, there are three different Cashpot Towers for the game’s symbols. On the right-hand side of the reel, there is a Cashpot with a value inside and a Collect button. As far as the presentation goes, that is all that there is to Joker’s Luck slot.
In Joker’s Luck, there are a total of five symbols. Three of them are collected and are displayed as Cashpot Towers above the reel. Those three symbols are a bell, a star and a horseshoe. The towers consist of five different levels. The other symbols include a blue joker and a red joker. The blue joker, acts as a wild, adding plus one level to all symbols in the tower. As for the red joker, it resets all the towers and cashpot back to 0.
Every time you click on the spin button, there is a chance of landing on any of the five symbols or landing a blank. A blank basically means a winless spin. If you manage to land a star, it is collected in the star tower cashpot. The more stars you collect, the higher in the tower you climb. In addition, the cashpot prize also increases and can be collected at any time. The same goes for the horseshoe and the bell.
Should you land on a red joker, everything that you have done up to that point is eliminated with the towers and cashpot resetting back to 0.
Each tower consists of five levels. To advance through the levels, you have to collect symbols of that tower. Here you can see the prizes available at every level of each tower:
- 1 symbol is worth 1 times your stake
- 2 symbols are worth 2 times your stake
