slots fans are seeing triple with Pragmatic Play’s new Triple Jokers
There’s just something about classic 3-reel slot machines that
continue to enthrall players of all generations. It’s something in
the simplicity of it. All slot machines are renowned for their lack
of complication, but classic slots go so much further. Their paylines
are understood without question, their symbols are straight forward,
and the pay table is displayed right there on the side of the main
Add in an appealing theme with vibrant graphics and a reasonably high
RTP, and you’ve got the makings for a fan favorite. Develop it as
part of a series, and manufacturers can captivate audiences for years
to come. That’s exactly what multi-national digital gaming studio
Pragmatic Play is hoping to achieve with its recent release of the
Triple Jokers classic reel slot.
The problem with that plan is that the Joker’s series this new game
appears to follow wasn’t created by Pragmatic Play. It is an
extensive series produced by Play’n Go over the years. Sure, no one
owns the rights on jokers or their crazy bell-jingling hats, but the
ostensible mimicry was enough to make this seasoned iGaming vet do a
With that said, let’s see if this new Triple Jokers online slot lives
up to its erroneously assumed reputation…
Pragmatic Play – Triple Jokers Slot Review
I’m pleasantly surprised to report that this game has some admirable
qualities. It’s a standard 3×3 reel, 5 payline game with common
classic slot graphics. The Joker is the highest paying standard
symbol, worth 20x the line bet. Other symbols are 7s, bells, bars,
spade, hearts, clubs and diamonds.
I played this for a few spins before entering the pay table – not
an uncommon way to play 3-reel slots since the payouts are listed in
plain site. However, I immediately noticed some extra features being
triggered, and had to delve deeper to find out how and why. It turns
out all symbols have a propensity to stack for a reason.
When the jokers stack 3 on a reel, they transform into Wild Jokers and set off the Spin Till You Win feature.
The stacked wilds remain in place while the rest of the reels spin again. If no win results, those reels continue spinning until one does. If a second 3-high stack of jokers appears, it too will lock in place and turn wild for a respin, giving players the best chance of landing wild jokers on all 9 positions. Doing so will pay out the max 5000 coins payout.
Triple Joker Specs
With a bet range of $0.05 up to $50 per spin, it’s got potential to
entertain both budget bettors and high rollers, but it could take a
well stocked bankroll to hit the biggest wins. The paytable says
straight out that this is a highly volatile game. As Pragmatic Play
puts it; “High volatility games pay out less often on average but
the chance to hit big wins in a short time span is higher.”
The designers made sure to give Triple Jokers Slot a viable RTP of
96.47%, meeting the industry average for online slot machines.
Engineered in HTML5, it’s fully compatible with all major operating
systems, therefore playable on both desktop and mobile.
It also comes with customizable autoplay functions that include a
turbo spinner, but I do not recommend using it. By my calculations
(stop watch and demo play), at max speed, you can autoplay up to 90
spins per minute! That is not a healthy or entertaining way to play
the slots. Slow the pace, take your time, enjoy the game, and as
always, gamble responsibly.
