Jester's Jackpot Pokie Machine

Simple 3-reel, single payline pokies used to be the only option for people who liked to spin the reels and see what symbols lined up in the right places for a win. Now there are 5-reel, multi-round games that have free spins, wild symbols, multiplier payouts, side games and just about every theme that can be thought of, but these old-style Poker machines have remained popular.

Easy gameplay, quick winnings and a lack of distractions have kept casino players coming back to pokies like Jester’s Jackpot which is a classic example from Microgaming, who are something of the experts in this sort of game.

The software behind Jester’s Jackpot is the same as that used in a number of others from the same developer, so it differentiates itself by having bright colours and a popular theme of a court jester up to his tricks.

A light and dark blue chequered pattern sits behind the game, offsetting the greens and reds of the logo image which comes complete with our jester friend peeking out from behind the game title. The reels are above this, while the right side of the game is taken up by the paytable. Because players can opt to use 1, 2 or 3 coins, there are 3 columns of numbers on the table that correspond to how many coins will be won depending on how many are in play.

The amount won remains in the same proportion to the amount staked, and unlike many similar games, there’s no enhanced jackpot payouts when playing with 3 coins. The amount bet is decided using the control panel at the bottom of the game, with players able to adjust the value of a coin from the minimum of 0.25 to 0.50, 1.00, 2.00, 5.00, 10.00, 20.00 or to the maximum of 25.00. Then they can play with up to 3 coins for a top wager of 75.00 per spin, with the relevant column of payouts lighting up for clarity.

Most of the symbols are exactly what players want and expect from a classic game such as this, starting off with the cherry that’s worth 2x the bet when a single example stops on the payline. Two cherries on the line are worth 5x, as is any combination of the bar symbols, with the single bar on its own being worth 10x the stake when it fills the line.

A full row of cherries is valued at 20x, then the jester’s bar is up next, paying out 50x the total stake when it lands across the line. The final symbol, and the one that this game is all about, is the pointy jester’s hat that comes complete with little bells on the end of it.

When it lands right across the centre of the reels, players win the jackpot prize, with 800x the amount bet per spin being paid out. At the maximum of 25.00 per coin, that’s an impressive win of 20,000.00 to add to the bankroll.

Jest the Ticket?

This is the sort of pokie that people either love or completely fail to see the point of. There are no bonus features, no incentives to play with maximum coins, no wild substitutions and as for a free spins game? No chance.

But that simple style is exactly what many players are looking for, as pokies such as Jester’s Jackpot focus on the business of spinning the reels and hopefully collecting some wins along the way, without any side games or features to distract from it.

Jester’s Jackpot has bright colours and smooth animations to the reels but as the gameplay is very similar to other pokies in the Microgaming range, it’s really just the design and theme that makes it different.
