Much like the fruit machines Joker Strike is emulating, the casino game is built around relatively simple mechanics, which can be a little bit boring for players used to titles that are packed with features. That said, Joker Strike will appeal to high roller players in particular, thanks to its volatility and flexible betting.

Joker Strike bonus features
Quickspin has stuck with the classic look for this 5-reel, 3-row slot and Joker Strike looks exactly like an old fruit machine, except a little bit shinier. In terms of symbols, we can see the classics like lucky 7’s, bells and stars, as well as hearts, clubs, spades and diamonds.
The Joker symbol is the one to look out for. It will pay out the most, awarding 100 times the wager when completely covering a payline.
The Wild symbol in Joker Strike can substitute for any other symbol and is fairly high value in and of itself. It will pay out 30 times the stake when 4 land on a payline.
Joker Strike Free Spins
There is no free spins feature in Joker Strike. However, there is plenty of other action to enjoy on this Quickspin slot.
Joker Strike feature
The Joker Strike feature is triggered when the player lands a winning combination. You will notice that the game screen is surrounded by a row of symbols that goes all the way around the reels. This is where the Joker Strike feature plays out.
Once a win is clocked, the symbols that make up the winning combination are highlighted on the outer wheel and a light will spin around it. If the light stops on one of the winning combo symbols, that is a Strike! Additional instances of the selected symbol will be added to the reels at random.
The number of symbols forming the winning combo will determine how many symbols are activated in the outer reel. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of a kind will result in 6, 8 or 10 extra symbols being added, respectively.
Hi Roller feature
This feature allows the player to make bigger bets and to select which mode the subsequent spins will be in.
Each of these modes is active for five spins at a time. Betting £20 will guarantee a Wild on each of the following 5 spins. The Wild will move clockwise during the spin and will land when the reels stop. Wild Strike mode introduces two Wild symbols on the outer ring and Wild symbols will be added to the reels if the light marker stops on any of these Wilds. The bet size is £30.
At a bet size of £50, the player activates the Double Chance, which adds a second light marker to the outer ring, thus doubling their chances of landing a Joker Strike.
Joker Strike jackpot
There is no jackpot on Joker Strike. However, it does have a 10,000-coin max win limit, which is not bad for what is essentially a fruit machine with a makeover.
The RTP for Joker Strike is 98.11%, which puts it at a higher rate than a lot of its competitors at this level. It also has a high volatility and will appeal (as the name suggests) to high rollers who enjoy betting big and winning big.
Joker Strike Mobile
As with most Quickspin titles, Joker Strike is fully mobile compatible and can be enjoyed on all kinds of mobile devices as long as they are connected to the internet.
