Play’n GO presents the 5 paylines slot based on a classic fruit theme with a joker twist.
Inferno Joker: No laughing matter
By most slot standards, Inferno Joker is a straightforward game to play as far as fruit themes go, and only three features including scatter pays, gamble and re-spins. The game is played on 5 reels with 5 paylines.
Inferno Joker is a 5×3 grid slot with 5 paylines using a classic fruit theme. This is because we’ll find traditional fruit symbols including watermelons, lemons, plums and cherries as well as gold bars, a lucky number seven and a Joker as the highest paying. The artwork is colourful and detailed for a fruit theme, and there is an energetic musical tune pumping excitement and intensity. The slot has an RTP of 96.3% and very high volatility meaning high risk and potentially higher rewards. The game can be played with a range of wagers typically starting from £0.05 to £100. It also counts desktop, Android and iOS devices amongst its supported platforms.
The slot has high volatility and RTP of 96.3%.
Inferno Joker scatter
This slot comes with an Inferno Joker scatter that will award payouts of as much as 125x, 375x or 2,500x total bet in sets of 3, 4 or 5.
Inferno Joker Re-Spins
The Inferno Joker Re-Spins feature is unlocked whenever an Inferno Joker scatter symbol appears on the third reel. For this feature, the third reel is locked while the others spin for the chance for joker symbols to appear. For the duration of the feature, all jokers become Inferno Joker scatter symbols as well. If another joker appears, then its corresponding reel is also held in place for another respin. This will continue until no new jokers land or all reels have an Inferno Joker scatter.
Highlights of the game include re-spins, scatter pays and a gamble feature.
The Gamble feature is triggered after any win and offers the choice of the red/black for a 50-50 chance at double or nothing or the suit pays for a 25% chance of winning 4x our gamble amount. We can play the feature a maximum of five times or until we have reached £750 – whatever comes first!
While I am not a big fan of fruit themes just for the sake of fruit themes, the joker angle did work for me. Here are some other slots with the same theme that I like.
Classic fruit theme with a joker twist but few laughs
Inferno Joker is a fresh, colourful and fittingly sound-tracked slot from Play’n GO. Unfortunately, I felt like something was missing with the absence of an extra spins feature and wilds considering only 5 paylines.
The top payout per payline is 500x bet with 5 joker symbols – and 2,500x bet if we can land 5 fully stacked reels of them! We’ll have to do this without the wild though as there are none in this slot. During the re-spins, landing five Inferno Joker scatter symbols is another way of winning 2,500x bet. Players will really need to be a fan of high volatility slots to appreciate this one but Play’n Go has a few of these including Book of Dead which are better. For this reason alone, I would not put it at the top of my list!
