Joker slots have a reputation for being hard-hitting, simple, gambling games. This Joker Stacks mobile slot is not it.
That’s not to say that this iSoftbet slot machine doesn’t have some redeemable qualities.
With 15 paylines, 5 reels, and sticky wilds, there’s certainly a glimmer of hope, but if you are a fan of Joker games like Mystery Joker 6,000 or Jackpot 6,000 slot by NetEnt, walk away now.
About the only similarity is the fact that you get one big fool of a symbol on screen.
With 7s, Bells, and Fruit symbols littering these 5 reels, you’ll be forgiven for thinking this is similar to a classic fruit machine.
But with 5 reels that are 3x4x3x4x3 rows high, it takes a little getting used to.
That said, there’s still only 15 paylines to play here, so it’s unclear why you need the strange layout which is usually reserved for video slots who like to give you extra ways to win like in Siberian Storm Dual Play or Mermaid’s Diamonds.
Still, it does mean that the minimum bet is a low 0.15 a spin, which will make casual gamblers happy, though high-limit slot players are better off looking elsewhere as the max bet is only 15 cash a spin.
You get decent wins in one of two ways.
You can randomly, after any spins, get a stacked wild on reels 1, 3, and/or 5. If you get one, it can help top up your balance, but if you get 3, that’s when things get fun.
You very, very rarely get 3.
The same problems happen in the Joker Stacks free spin bonus round, where you need to collect normal wild symbol on screen to turn reels wild for the duration of the free games.
On 15 free spins, you generally turn one reel wild because collecting 6 wilds isn’t hard.
But trying to collect 16 wilds in total to get 2 wild reels? or 26 wilds to get 3 wild reels? With only 19 possible free spin round? You do the math, it doesn’t add it.
And whilst one wild reel is nice, it’s hardly going to bring earth-shattering big wins.
There are big promises here, but unfortunately, this Joker Stacks online slot never quite delivers.
You are better off trying something like the Joker Pro mobile game or the Dark Joker Rizes by Yggdrasil, if you like 5 reel Joker slots.

Wilds: The Joker is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol over these 15 paylines to create a win.
Stacked Wilds and Re-spins: Randomly after any base game spin, you can get a stack appear on either reel 1, 3 and/or 5.
Usually you get one or two fully wild reels for one extra spin.
Scatters and Free Spins: The star bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 will trigger 15 free games.
During these free games, you collect any normal wild symbols leading to:
Collect 6 is hard enough, trust us.
This Joker Stacks slot on mobile annoyed us because, on paper, it does a lot of things right.
In the base game, you can suddenly get up to 3 reels wild. In the generous 15 free rounds that you get, you can potentially turn 3 reels wilds and keep them sticky for the whole bonus game.
That's the kind of mechanics that made us fall in love with slots like Cazino Zeppelin.
However, in practice, this iSoftbet fruit machine is full of hot air, rarely giving you those stacks of jokers and wilds, leaving you feeling cheated after not many spins.
