Full of stacked wilds and stacked symbols, this Joker Lanterns slot looks good on paper, so why does it feel like you are about to get burnt with every spin?
Every October we get a whole load of spooky Undead casino games, and this Joker Lanterns mobile slot online ticks all the right boxes.
With 6 reels and 40 paylines, what you have here is a familiar fruity with just one little vegetable thrown in – specifically the Pumpkin Jack’O’Lantern wild. That, and the background, is about the only hint we get that this is anything to do with Halloween.
In short, this is another fruit machine, only bigger. And you get to pick whether you want multipliers on the wild and how many free spins you get on the bonus. What’s not exciting about that?
Here’s the reason why this Joker Lanterns slot review only gets 3 stars. To start with you have to choose your hyperbet.
What doesn’t that mean? It means that much like Golden Fish Tank slot, for a little extra bet you get more features. Only this is a whole load of extra bet.
The minimum bet of Joker Lanterns is set at 0.50 a spin. But that means that you get no multiplier on the wild, and only 5 free spins in the bonus.
You have to increase your minimum bet to 3.74 to get all the good features. That’s when the stacks of wild will now have a 10x multiplier and you’ll start the free spin bonus with 12 spins.
And like so many real money slots out there, this is all about catching the free spins. Because when you do, the reels are just richer in wilds, jackpot symbols and star symbols.
Catch 3 star symbols and you’ll get +2 spins. Catch stacks of wild symbols and you’ll get huge wins. Catch stacks of jackpot symbols and you could wing anywhere from 2x to 10,000x your bet.
Despite the so-so theme, this Joker Lanterns slot is not for the faint of heart. But if you love casino games that have big win potential, and you don’t mind paying a little extra to get there, this game has a good RTP and great top win.
If you don’t want to bet as high as 3.74 to a maximum bet of 74.80, then maybe it’s time to check out some other undead creatures – the Walking Wild slot review perhaps?

Multiplier Wild: The pumpkin wild will substitute for all symbols, except the bonus and the jackpot symbol. When a multiplier wild occurs in a winning combination, it's multiplied by that value. The worth of that multiplier depends on your hyperbet levels.
Free Spins Bonus: When 3 bonus symbols appear, you initiate the free spins. How many you get depends on your feature bet level. Every 3 stars you collect gives you +3 free spins. The reels are richer with jackpot and wild symbols.
Which hyperbet level should I choose: for an extra bet you can choose any of these levels.
To give you an idea of cost, at the minimum bet, the levels are worth:
Bonus Jackpot: The amount of these bonus jackpots change per player. This is not a progressive jackpot, but a small amount of your own bet is used to increase these pots, so when they hit you win back bigger amounts. These amounts are saved in-between gameplay, as long as you play at the same casino.
These are seed amounts only. The jackpot can grow vastly on these amounts.
This Halloween themed game isn't the prettiest, or smartest, but if you have the cash to burn there's a whole load of big wins. This is mostly thanks to four in-game jackpots and some big multipliers - which you have to buy.
And that right there, is why we can only give this Joker Lanterns slot review 3 stars. We actually liked it a lot. But that hyperbet is expensive to buy, making the minimum bet of this machine an expensive 3.74 a spin.
Basically, we don't like games that force you to bet big. If you want to bet only 0.10 a spin, you should be able to, without feeling like you are missing out on game features.
But then again, critics will say that there's plenty with low minimum bets such as the Hyper Burst slot, and few games where, for a little extra cash, you get a whole load more bang.
