First Wish: Does Xmas Joker’s Gameplay Make Us Feel Festive?

Christmas can be a pretty manic time, particularly if you’re the so-called ‘head’ of your household. There are tons of presents to wrap, meals and parties to attend; the list goes on. Xmas Joker is one of the most laid-back seasonal slots available. This makes its gameplay experience perfect for those looking to have another form of entertainment after a long day of Xmas prep. This three-reel, five-payline slot machine was made by Play N Go and uses a familiar fruit machine style for straightforward gameplay. It features a bonus round of free spins, a randomly awarded instant win cash prize, and other features which we’ll explore later. Xmas Joker is playable on all platforms, including mobile phones and tablets and spins range from 50p to £25 per spin which should suit the budgets of most players. This slot also has a particularly generous RTP average of 96.8% as well as a medium volatility rating.

Second Wish: Does Xmas Joker’s Game Theme and Symbols Inspire Christmas Cheer?

There are plenty of Christmas-themed slots that go hard on the visual aspects of their gameplay with reels festooned in tons of decorations. Xmas Joker takes a more subtle approach. Xmas Joker resembles a classic one-armed bandit but with a festive Christmas touch. The reels feature images of gingerbread men, bows, baubles, bells, and stars against a background of green and red, embellished with Christmas bells. The slot has a red and green colour scheme with ribbons and bells surrounding the reels. It is clear that this slot game has been inspired more by Santas Elves (who aren’t too dissimilar to the iconic Joker seen in slots) over that of Jolly Old Saint Nick himself. To make a winner and receive between 10 coins (the gingerbread men) to 50 coins (if you land the stars), you must locate three symbols in a payline.

Third Wish: Do Xmas Joker’s Features Feel Like a Gift?

Christmas Joker doesn't have a wild symbol, which is a little odd, but don’t feel like Christmas is ruined just yet, because it does include a scatter symbol in the form of the Joker. If you manage to land three jokers anywhere on the reels during the base game, you'll receive ten bonus spins. Let’s look at this feature more closely:

Free Spins (And Present Instant Win)

You'll note that the scatter symbol transforms from the joker to a pink gift when you're using your free bonus spins. During your bonus spins, if you find two of these adorable gifts, you will receive a bonus cash win that can be worth up to 100 times your initial stake.

You will receive an additional ten bonus spins if you are fortunate enough to locate three pink prizes on the reels. Before the bonus game concludes, you can do this to win up to 50 more free spins.

Genie’s Farewell

Overall, Xmas Joker makes for the perfect festive slot for those looking to unwind this holiday season. While it has been made for traditional slot players in mind thanks to its slight retro style, the Xmas Joker slot has more than enough jingle to entertain most slot players. While the omission of a wild symbol seems a little strange the generous free spins bonus round complete with its instant cash prize feature more than makes up for any shortfall. So, as a whole, the Xmas Joker slot machine is certainly on our nice list, and if you’re looking for more slot games that fit this category, why not explore our blog post 6 Days of Crimble - Top Christmas Slots, to discover more?
