This is lightyears away from your standard joker betting machine as this Elk Joker Gems mobile slot does something a little bit different from usual.
When you think ‘Jokers’ your mind immediately goes to fruity supermeter slots where you have to bet back your winnings for the chance to win more.
Well, not with this Elk video slot, who instead offer you a 5×5 grid and 3 in-game jackpots which, if you win together, could make you 80,000 richer – and that’s not counting the potential symbol win of 700 times your bet.
In short, this might not have a super meter, but it sure has super wins so if you like this kind of jester themed games keep reading, we promise this is worth your while.
This Joker Gems slot machine can be described in one sentence. In fact we wrote it above in one easy sentence and if you know anything about these bonus features, you’ll start getting excited.
Now unlike other grid slots like Emoji Planet by NetEnt or Rise of Olympus by Play’n GO, here your grid rarely fills with paid symbols – instead you get maybe 5 to 10 symbols and the rest little diamonds that pay nothing.
But you do get a beautiful glittering night sky full of potential as you spin to get clusters of 3 or more symbols touching anywhere on the grid.
Because once you do, those symbols will stay sticky on screen and you’ll get re-spin after re-spin to try and catch more winning symbols.
Joker Gems is a volatile slot, so how come it only has 700 times your bet when other’s like Berryburst Max has 6,000 times your bet?
That’s because if you keep getting those sticky re-spin symbols, you can trigger any one of three jackpots: 10,000, 20,000 and 50,000 in cash – not progressive, but in the game itself.
Fill enough of the screen and you can win all three, making this gloriously exciting to watch. That said, bigger betters have better odds of triggering the slot jackpots so it can feel a little frustrating.
However, there’s an easy flow here that keeps you spinning away to get clusters of 6 or more symbols, even if you know (in your heart) that you’re really only playing for the chance to land one of those 3 jackpots.

Sticky Win Respins: Clusters of 3 or more identical symbols will stay sticky on screen and the rest of the symbols will re-spin.
You will keep getting re-spins if you get more winning symbols. The re-spins stop once no more symbols are found.
Light Chaser: A stream of light will randomly appear between spins. It will create a cluster of 4 to 5 identical symbols resulting in a win when it stops and creating further re-spins.
How to win the Jackpot: If you get a cluster of any 9 symbols in the centre of the grid, you'll win 10,000 in cash.
If you fill just the outer rim, you'll win 20,000 in cash.
If you fill the entire grid with the same symbols, you'll win 50,000 in cash, plus the other two jackpot amounts.
Considering this isn't a progressive jackpot slot game it kinda plays a little bit like one.
That's because, despite a decent top win, it's not quite enough to make up for the volatility of this slot - you need to get over 8 symbols to get anything ok, and one of the jackpots to really be in the money.
Still, those 3 jackpots are worth playing for, and this beautiful theme is a nice twist on the usual Joker fruities.
Overall we could see giving this Joker Gems game a few spins on our mobile and tablet in the hope to catch those symbols with a few lucky re-spins.
