Just like the Batman movies forever set the expectation that the Joker is a slightly crazy guy with his only goal in life being to do bad things, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the Bonus Joker 2 online slot. Not only are there two jokers but their goal is to make you happy and help you win.
A fruit machine with a surprising point
Apollo Games, the company responsible for the Bonus Joker 2 have created a traditional three-reel fruit slot in a fairly original way and we were able to have some pretty good fun while playing it. At first, the low number of reels, three rows, and only 5 fixed winning lines did put us off a bit (similarly like with the Smiling Joker II slot machine) but we very quickly got taken in with the spinning of the reels with Jokers and we’ve had more than good fun.
We remembered that with one eye closed, this is a fruit machine. The main tasks are, however, taken over by the duo of jokers that are a lot more fun than lemons, cherries or sevens. The visuals are very well done by the authors although the absence of any music did surprise us. And we were missing some soothing tones while playing.
The joker bonuses are no laughing matter
We would miss bonuses while playing a lot more than music. Luckily, Apollo Games did not hesitate in this category and they played good cards.
There are only two bonus symbols and they are both joker symbols but they aren’t boring. The Joker symbol is the classic Wild symbol. If it's part of a potential winning line, it can fill in the missing symbols and change this line to a winning one. What's great is the fact that this is an Expanding Wild symbol, although it doesn’t always expand. However, if you spin it on one of the reels, there's a chance of a proper win, it will expand to the entire reel which will complete the line.
The second joker symbol also works as a Wild symbol. The Bonus Joker can also replace missing symbols in winning lines and it also functions as a scatter symbol that will move you to games with free spins. In order for that to happen, you have to get a minimum of three of these symbols. If you manage that, the game will give you free spins. There can be 5 or up to 15 of them. While playing for free, certain special rules apply. The Bonus Joker can once again get you up to 15 free spins but also just spinning it on the reels will bring you up to eight-times your original bet. Also applicable is that the Bonus Joker does not pay out for one winning line but instead pays out for the number of times it's on the playing field.
Try out the Bonus Joker 2 at a casino
When playing the Bonus Joker 2, we were happy that Apollo Games once approached a classic type of slots with innovative thinking. If this slot was only about fruit, we can honestly say that we wouldn't enjoy it. But with the bonus Joker symbols, it's another cup of tea. They kept us playing and they will probably manage again from time to time. Try out the Bonus Joker 2 at an online casino and you’ll get your own idea about the game.
