Joker’s Jewels is a video slot created by Pragmatic Play, which emulates old physical machines with great accuracy! They’re upbeat and colourful, perfect for lulling you into a sense of comfort and security. But we’ll warn you right away, this game will be something you love or loathe immediately. And it all depends on how you feel about no special features being available.
Oh yes, the old-timey inspiration extends to more than just the graphics! Joker Jewels captures the simplicity of these type of slots. The only thing close to resembling a bonus is the fact Scatters can pay from any position. There are no free spins or Wilds. No re-spins or tumbling reels. There’s just you and the grind, and the promise of a 5,000x jackpot if you succeed.
Play Joker’s Jewels
Pragmatic Play made sure that the symbols fit the theme. Not that we’re sure about what exactly the theme is beyond a joker and his jewels.There’s three types of jewels to collect, along with the joker’s shoes, bowling pins, a guitar and the Joker himself. The golden crown is Scatter and can award wins from any position instead of following fixed paylines.
How to Play
The game is played on a 5x3 board with 5 paylines which cannot be turned on or off. The layout does its best to emulate a physical machines, complete with a colourful paytable at the top of the screen.They even go so far as to let you see the ‘edges’ of the machine. Now that’s dedication!
As with all other Pragmatic Play releases, their Spin button is the company’s own logo. The Autoplay is snugly pressed beneath the Spin button, and gives players lots of options to choose from. To change their total bet, gamblers have to adjust coin value and the number of coins on each payline. Through this, they can stake as little as $0.25, or as much as $25 per spin.
Collecting three or more identical icons in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel, awards a win. However, all wins must follow one of five active paylines, or else the cash prize won’t be granted. There’s one exception to this rule, which we’ve already mentioned: Scatters!

So, what’s a player hungry for jackpots to do where there are no special features to hunt? The answer is simple. Budget carefully, and don’t let Joker Jewels tempt you. The slot can be very tricky when it wants to be, and it’s all over if your balance runs dry.
