With just 5 paylines, this Joker Expand mobile slot has more in common with a classic 3 reeler than a 5 reel video slot.
Yes, this Playson game has 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols. Yes, you even get a wild in the form of the joker which expands when it can create a win.
But don’t let that fool you. This is closer in terms of gameplay with the likes of the Red Diamond or Break Da Bank by Microgaming than it is with more complicated games like Thunderstruck or Robin of Sherwood slot.
Because this is basically a fruit machine in disguise. You’ve got cherries and 7s and bars, all littering 3 rows of just 5 paylines.
So, much like a classic slot, there are no multipliers, no big features – you just need to get some good five of a kind wins with the 7s; preferably with all the 7s.
The wild symbols will help with this because it expands to cover the reels when they show up. It’s a much friendlier joker than you will find in games like the Quickspin Joker Strike slot, that’s for sure.
It’s fairly volatile, so don’t expect the wins to come quick and fast, but every so often you get a lovely surprise.
Look, we are not going to pretend like this is the best slot for mobile or online casinos ever to be made.
In fact, it’s not. The Joker Expand game is not that different from many out there or breaking any moulds.
But it’s good enough. There’s some good five of a kind wins, there’s a little extra fun with that expanding wild, and the fruit machine theme is nice enough.
We wish they would have added more than just 3 scatters to the reels, but that’s only a small complaint about a simple 5 reel classic slot.

Expanding Wilds: The Joker is the wild symbol and when it shows up on the reels it will expand to cover said reel, if it can create a win.
It will replace all other symbols over this 5 payline slot machine, but won't replace the scatter.
Scatters: The star is the scatter symbol and getting 3 on reels 1, 3 and 5 will give you a 3 of a kind win.
As long as you don't expect anything more than a simple fruit machine, this Joker Expand game will tick the right boxes.
You have good 5 of a kind wins, some simple spins, and the occasional expanding wild to keep things ticking along.
It not earth-shattering exciting, but it's a decent 5 payline game that should please most fruit slot lovers.
