Action Joker by Greentube released on 03.03.2020 is a 5-reel & 4-row online slot with 40 fixed pay lines and a 95.12% RTP. This is a -themed game offering players a max win of up to x their stake. Action Joker can be played on all devices from €1.00 to €10 per spin and is considered a High volatility video slot.
Action Joker is one of the new releases from game developer Greentube. As suspected from the slot title, we are looking at a classic fruit-themed slot, which means reels filled with colourful fruit and berries and of course a joker somewhere. The joker has after all turned into a kind of mascot for many classic slots out there, which makes it no big surprise that the joker is king in this Action Joker slot. The question most slot players will be asking themselves here though, is what really makes this fruit-themed slot stand out from all the others that already exist?
When taking a look at the set up of the game, you will see that Greentube has decided to stick to a pretty classic reel set consisting of 5 reels and 4 rows. Here, you will find 40 fixed pay lines to place your bets on. Bets will be able to be adjusted through the “total bet”, starting from a minimum of €1 per spin and up to a maximum of €10 per spin. In other words, there isn't much of a range available here, making the slot pretty limited in terms of which players it is suitable for. You will be getting wins on the reel set for three or more of a kind, while the top prize is 80 000x your bet per line.
Surprisingly enough, there are actually a couple of different features going on, even as a classic slot. You will see scatter symbols, wild symbols, stacked wilds, a gamble feature and even a free spins bonus round. Action Joker has an RTP of 95.12%.
When it comes to classic slots, we tend not to expect too much when it comes to any special features or bonus rounds. In Action Joker, however, you will find both special symbols as well as a free spins bonus round which is activated by the scatter symbols of the game. The joker is, of course, the wild symbol and can appear stacked on the reels.
Through the menu of the slot, you will be able to activate the gamble feature should you wish to do so, this is optional. With the gamble feature activated, every time you get a winning combination on the reels, you will be able to choose if you want to collect the win or gamble the amount for a chance to win even more.
Joker Wild symbol
The wild symbol of the slot is fittingly enough, the joker himself. This symbol has the ability to substitute all other symbols of the game with an exception of the scatter symbol. The wild symbol will also be able to show up during the free spins bonus game, in fact, it will be even more present there than during the main game in order to help you get bigger wins. Joker symbols will, however, appear stacked on the reels during the main game.
Free Spins feature
The main feature of the game is, of course, the free spins feature, which will be triggered by the scatter symbols. To be triggered, you will need to land between 3 and 5 scatter symbols on the reels, which will reward you with up to 30 free spins. 3 scatters give you 10 spins, 4 scatters give you 20 spins and 5 scatters will give you the maximum of 30 free spins.
While this feature is active, you will notice that many more joker symbols will be present on the reels of the game, which will, of course, help you out in getting bigger and better wins. What makes the free spins bonus feature even better, is the fact that it can be retriggered, meaning you have the chance to get even more free spins.
Design and Symbols
In Action Joker you will be travelling back in time to the good old classic fruity slots that were all the rage when slots were just starting out. Of course, this type of slot machine is still a clear favourite amongst many players, both experienced and new. For players who are new to this type of slot, you can expect a pretty plain and simple design, with not much going on neither in the background, on the reels or any animations around the reel set. This is the case when it comes to Action Joker too as the background is pretty much just different shades of red and there is nothing else really going on except for the symbols on the reels.
The symbols on the reels, of course, consist of all of the typical fruit and berries are seen on these types of slots. There are a total of 10 standard symbols as well as 2 special symbols. The lowest paying symbols are the cherries, lemons, oranges and plums, then you have the watermelon and grapes, the pears and strawberries and finally the red 7s and the blue 7s. The coloured 7s are the two symbols of the highest value.
There are two special symbols in the Action Joker slot. The scatter symbols are represented by a golden star and is responsible for triggering the free spins feature bonus round. The wild symbol of the game shows the joker himself and can appear stacked on the reels during the main game and also has the ability to substitute all other symbols in the game with the exception of the scatter.
Our Thoughts on Action Joker
Action Joker will be a great choice for you if you are looking for just another classic fruit-themed slot. For players who are looking for anything more than this, we are sad to say that we think it will be a disappointment for most. The graphics and design is extremely simple, which of course is suitable for the theme, but seeing this is a modern take on a classic slot, Greentube could easily have gone a step further here.
However, we have to say that there is, of course, the surprise of having both special symbols, as well as a free spin feature present in the game. Which are all a part of making the game slightly more entertaining and interesting? We like that the free spins feature can be re-triggered and that wild symbols appear stacked and are a part of both the main game as well as the free spins round. Other than that, there isn't much more to say about Action Joker apart from that it clearly isn't a favourite.
