A simple fruit machine, Mega Joker mobile slot has all the you need if all you want are a few quick spins with lots of potential.
We have to admit to not being hugely dazzled when we first opened up this fruity. The symbols were clear enough, and as an Android phone or iPhone slot, it probably works better as the simplicity fits the smaller screen.
It just felt a little too simple for a video slot. In fact, it felt like a classic slot game that had simply been made bigger, over 40 paylines and 5 reels. Which is exactly what this is.
And we love classic slots, with the likes of 5x magic bringing something a little different to the genre, or the Jackpot Jester 50,000 slot game bringing with its multi-line thrill. But the Mega Joker slot was hard love; not quite one thing or another, it wasn’t simple enough to follow the wins, but didn’t have that much happening on its five reels to thrill us.
What it does have is stacked wilds and large wins. The scatter will bring you the biggest wins of the game, with 5 scatters creating winning combinations that get you a beautiful 400x your bet win.
But it’s the stacked wilds that bring the biggest wins in the main game, as they line up just so to get you several four or five of a kind wins over any number of the 40 win lines in view.
It’s impressive, and your budget isn’t hurt as much as many other Novomatic slot machines. But you quickly tire of the same sounds and the dead spins, wishing for something more to happen on the reels.
Which is why, after a few spins, we’ll bet our blue, green and red hat that you’ll suddenly find yourself playing the equally simple, but far more thrilling, Book of Ra Deluxe slot machine.

Stacked Wilds: The jester in the funny hat is wild and replaces all other symbols except scatter. He comes stacked across all reels, which can bring with it some beautiful wins.
Scatters: The star represent the scatter symbols and is the highest paying symbol on the reels. These pay no matter where they are on the reels, with three or more symbols.
The Mega Joker mobile slot isn't bad. In fact, as a classic mobile slot, it would almost be good, but with 40 paylines it doesn't bring the thrill you'd expect.
In the end, we could easily see ourselves playing on this Novomatic game for a little while, trying to hit some big wins with those expanded wilds, before moving on to so many of it's much greater sister slots.
