Game of the Week – Mighty Joker Arcade
If you like classic 3-Reel pokies, then you should take a look at Mighty Joker Arcade. It is the latest 3-Reel pokie from StakeLogic, but it is not your average 3-Reel game. Mighty Joker offers three different games that give you the chance to score some big wins. Let’s take a look at the game and the features it offers.
Mighty Joker Arcade is Three Pokies in One
Mighty Joker Arcade is the newest online pokie from StakeLogic. The game features an evil Joker that looks a lot like the Joker character from the Batman series of comics and cartoons. Much like the Joker in Batman, you never know what you’re going to get from the Joker.
This pokie offers three distinct games that you can play. All three games feature a combination of lower paying symbols and higher-paying symbols. Lower paying symbols include cherries, oranges, and lemons. Medium paying symbols are plums and limes. Watermelons, bells, and 7s are among the highest paying symbols. The Mighty Joker Jackpot bag is the highest paying symbol, paying up to 200 credits for three on a line.
There are no wild symbols in the game, but the Joker serves as the scatter. Scatters do not unlock any free spins game but it does give a payout. However, the payout is a “Mystery” payout that varies from 2 to 200 credits depending on the game.
As stated earlier, there are three different games to play in this pokie, so let’s take a look at each.
The base game in Mighty Joker is an old-school single payline 3-Reel game. You’ll play one credit per spin and you’ll earn a payout on either two or three symbols on a payline. Lower paying symbols pay 0 to 4 credits on two of a kind in this game.
The Joker scatters will pay when either two on a payline or three anywhere on the board. The Mystery payment for 2 Jokers is from 2 to 200 credits. When you land three Jokers, you will get from 4 to 200 credits.
After each win, you have the option to gamble or collect your winnings. Gamble can be done by choosing the side of a coin flip. If you guess correctly, your win is doubled. Guess wrong and you lose your winnings.
Also, after each losing spin, you have the option to hold reels to try and improve your odds of winning on the next spin. There’s no additional cost to hold reels.
Top Game Bet 4
The second game available is the first of two Top Games. For the first Top Game, you will bet four credits per spin. Payouts are on three of a kind only, but you get Criss Cross paylines. For this game, two Jokers pay a Mystery prize of 4 to 200 credits. Three Jokers pay 8 to 200 credits.
After each winning spin, you can opt to retain your credits in the Super Meter and gamble with them. If you opt to do this, the credits for your next spin or spins will come from the Super Meter. You can also opt to collect the credits to your game bankroll. Honestly, there’s no advantage to retaining your credits in the Super Meter. It looks cool, but there are no bonuses for playing with Super Meter funds.
Top Game Bet 20
The second Top Game requires that you bet 20 credits per spin. Otherwise, the rules for the game are the same with the exception of the Joker. For this game, the Joker pays a Mystery payment of 8 to 200 credits for every instance of the Joker on board. Get three Jokers and get three different payouts.
Mighty Joker Arcade a Fun Variable Pokie
Mighty Joker is a fun game for those that love 3-Reel classic pokies. The Joker scatter gives you a chance to make some nice wins without having to hit the top paying symbols. You can play from .20 up to $20 per credit, making this game suitable for all bankrolls.
If you’re going to play, the best game is to play the Top Game for 20 credits. The Joker scatter hits frequently enough to reduce the variance that comes from playing 20 credits per spin. I was lucky enough to get scatter wins of as much as 100 credits along with quite a few in the 16 to 32 credit range.
Mighty Joker has an RTP at 95%, but the game has the potential to score some big wins. You can find it at Wild Card City, King Johnnie Casino, and all online casinos in Australia offering StakeLogic pokies.
