The sequel to the wildly successful Jackpot Jester 50000, Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge, sees that developers NextGen make another take on the three-reel classics.
How it looks
The game has the look of a Vegas fruit machine, complete with the richly coloured carpet and an aquarium in the background. The foreground of the screen, however, is taken up by what looks like an arcade slot. This machine in the centre, however, is split up into two halves, top and bottom, each with a separate set of three reels.
The symbols all make up a relatively classic fruit salad with lemons, cherries, plums and strawberries joining lucky number sevens, bells, and diamonds. The game has wilds, shown as jesters, but no scatters. The wilds replace every other symbol in the game.
How to play
Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge is actually two games in one. When you start, you will be playing on the bottom reels, which is the standard game. When you win the normal game, you can keep playing it at the normal level by cashing out your winnings, or you can use your winnings to bet on the super game which is played on the top reels. The gameplay for both is pretty simple as there are no mini-games.
The super game, which happens to be the game’s equivalent of a bonus round, is essentially a more lucrative version of the standard game. It offers better odds as well as stacked wilds, though it does require twice the number of coins per spin. This means that the slot can require some skilful decision making on whether to take your winnings or risk them to gain potentially far more.
The minimum and maximum stakes are 10p and £20 for the bottom reels and 20p and £40 for the super game. The game has an RTP of approximately 95 %, though the number will vary slightly depending on which set of reels is used more. Note that the £200,000 jackpot may only be won during the super game.
A higher volatility slot, Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge is not for inexperienced players, but with its high-risk high-reward feel, as well as the almost vintage look, it is a must-play for any classic slots aficionado.
