The follow up hit by Yggdrasil Gaming, The Dark Joker Rizes mobile slot is as dark and twisted as you’d imagine.
This casino slots developer created the Dark Joker Rizes after their over night success, The Jokerizer, became an instant hit with players. It was a fun, carnival theme game, which was pure popcorn fun.
So then, it made sense to murder that happy clown, send him to hell and back, and let him loose to haunt an abandoned carnival with frankenstein fruits and flaming wins.
Because clearly, someone in Yggdrasil had it in for that joker.
You have to be careful with the Dark Joker Rizes slot game.
It only has one feature, but it’s one that, when used carefully, can richly reward.
Personally, we find the Dark Joker Rizes slot difficult to get into. The reason being that, you can collect all the bells, sevens or fruits on these 5 reels, get 5 of a kind wins, paying both ways even, and it doesn’t matter one bit.
What you need is the joker symbol to appear multiple times, and the nerve to gamble back all your winnings in the hope of a bigger payoff.
The big wins are whenever you get at least 3 or more jokers in the base game. The more jokers you get, the better your chances of hitting that 600 times your bet max win.
Thing is, those jokers are hard to find. So whenever you find anything more than 20 coins, you can bet those winnings back in ‘jokerizer mode’.
This mode, means that you’ll get more frequent jokers, and you’ll only need two to potentially win anything from 2x to 600x your bet.
It’s a huge gamble, but one that if you don’t take, you might as well play on something like Chibeasties slot, which is far more traditional, with free spins and wilds.
The dark theme only helps bring out the fact that this is a pretty unforgiving machine. But you can’t deny that your blood pumps high in your veins as you spin back all your winnings, just hoping that damn joker shows his face.
For us, it feels a little too much like paying the devil to take your soul, which is why we’ll always play on the brilliant Cyrus the Virus slot instead.
But let it not be said that the devil doesn’t know how to reward its loyal clientele, with some beautiful wins for those who have nerves of steel.

Base Game Joker Mystery Win Feature: Three or more jokers appearing anywhere on the 5 reels trigger a mystery win.
The Jokerizer Feature: After any win where you collect more than 20 coins, you can choose to collect your winnings, or enter the jokerizer mode.
Here you'll spin the reels at 20 coins a spin, using your game winnings, but you do get an upside.
Not only are these reels richer with jokers, but this time you only need two jokers to win anything from 20 to 6,000 coins.
A mystery win of 500 coins or more will automatically end the jokerizer mode, though you can, of course, collect whenever you want.
Mystery Win Bonus Spin: After any mystery win is revealed (whether in the base game, or the jokerizer feature), a free bonus spin may be awarded, completely randomly.
Any jokers on screen will stay sticky and the rest of the symbols will spin, hopefully getting you at least another joker, and another mystery bonus win.
We'd said that the Dark Joker Rizes mobile slot is more of a classic game than a video slot.
After all, it has only 5 paylines, which pay both ways granted, one big feature that can reward gutsy players.
It's for those chasing the simplicity of all slot machine fruities where you just needed one good spin to walk away with your weeks wages paid for.
Not for everyone, but a popular classic from the Yggdrasil range. Though if you want some simply fun, you should also check out the Pyrons slot game by the same provider.
