Joker Bombs Slot (Hacksaw Gaming)
Hacksaw Gaming, the masters of mobile-focused slot machines, take it easy on the creative brainstorming with their new slot, titled Joker Bombs. It is a game with a familiar theme, and it seems to have massively borrowed from Pragmatic Play's portfolio, and precisely their Sweet Bonanza slot and Gates of Olympus.
Joker Bombs, like Pragmatic's previous releases, is a pay anywhere style game that relies heavily on cascades and multiplier icons to power its way to modest wins, by Hacksaw standards.
6x5 is the reel design that you are going to work with, and for the features, Hacksaw has given Joker Bombs things like Free spins bonus, Buy Feature, Cascading Reels, Multiplier, Wilds, Random Multiplier, Retrigger, as well as Scatter Pays.
Betting and Prizes
Do you love playing slot games for real money as I do? Well, if that is the case, then you will be happy to know that this slot allows bets of between $0. 20 and $100 per spin.
The slot offers a fair decent top payout with the maximum going to 5000 xs the stake. Although it is not a brutally volatile slot, this game has a fair RTP of 96.48% making it a good choice to many players.
Joker Bombs Slot Features
Just as is the case with Pragmatic Plays slots, you need some matching symbols on the reel to hit a win on this slot.
With the presence of the Cascades, winning icons are removed and replaced with new ones. I love this feature because, with its help, you can land very many wins.
Then there are Multiplier Bombs, and during each spin, any winning combo on the slot is shown at the top of the screen where it appears as a pending win. In case bomb symbols land while in a spin, their multiplier values will be combined. Once the cascade/win sequence is over, the multiplier values are either added or multiplied after which they are applied to the total win sum. Joker Bombs offers three versions of bombs:
Normal Bomb – it will land with a visible multiplier, with the possible winnings being x2, x3, or x4. The values will be added to the win multiplier.
Epic Bomb – it will land with an 'X' icon and will afterwards reveal the values of x2, x3, x4, x5, or x10. Its total value will not be added to the win multiplier although it will multiply it.
Revealing Bomb – it lands with a question mark to reveal x5, x10, x25, or x50 values. These values will then be added to the win multiplier.
I love Free Spins and upon landing 3 jack in the base game, Joker Bombs rewarded me with 10 free spins. While in the free spins mode, I got more multiplier bombs, and an extra 3 joker symbols bring along an additional +5 free spins.
Theme and Design
In a sunny fairground is a colourful Ferris Wheel with a roller coaster track whizzing past, plus some balloons that hover around the grid.
On the lower paytable are five balloons, while premium icons are represented by candy looking symbols.
It is not a surprise to see people imitate others, but it is pretty odd for a high calibre developer like Hacksaw Gaming to copy the work of a fellow game provider so closely.
I was expecting the usual original ideas from Hacksaw Gaming but this is not the case with Joker Bombs. However, if you don’t mind the originality, and are more interested in the feature plus the payout, this is a great slot title.
