Joker's Riches 2 is an online slot developed by High 5. It has a 3x5 layout and 20 paylines. This card and royalty themed slot has a 96% RTP. Bonus feature include free spins and Lasting Loot Activated Wilds.
If you’re familiar with High 5’s other online slots, you may have previously enjoyed Joker’s Riches. Joker’s Riches 2 is a worthy sequel that uses similar imagery and gameplay along with a new Lasting Loot Activated Wilds feature as well as copying the original’s free spins. Both slots have three rows of five reels, but Joker’s Riches 2 does have fewer paylines - 20 instead of 40. That is balanced out by the increase in bonus features.
Joker’s Riches 2 has three low-paying card symbols, three middle-level Joker symbols and three higher-paying royal symbols. The Wild symbol (which actually comes in six different forms - three different-coloured Jokers and three different-coloured sceptres) is the highest-paying symbol in its own right and also acts as a substitute. Some Wilds are only available during Lasting Loot Activated Wilds. The Bonus symbol, which also acts as a Scatter, is only available on the second, third and fourth reels and can trigger the free spins feature.
Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack
You might not be surprised to hear that the Joker is a recurring image in this slot. In fact, there are three of them, each with a different colour and shape of hat. It’s familiar imagery if you played the original Joker’s Riches slot by High 5, and it’s not dissimilar to the many jokers who appear in slots and other gambling games across the internet. Here the Joker is a bridge between the royal card symbols (J, Q and K) and three actual royals, a Prince, Queen and King. With the reels set against mountains and castles in the background, it’s a reminder of the Medieval origins of the Court Jester (as is the distinctly Medieval soundtrack), and it makes things a little more interesting than if it was just cards.
Joker’s Riches 2 RTP & Volatility
The RTP of Joker’s Riches is 96%, which is solidly average. It also puts it level with the original Joker’s Riches and many other High 5 demo slots. There’s no official information on volatility, but the original was medium variance, so it’s likely this is similar.
How to Play Joker's Riches 2
At first glance, you may wonder where all the controls for Joker’s Riches 2 can be found, but it’s quite easy when you know where to look:
1. The most obvious control other than the Spin button itself is the bet adjustor, which is found at the bottom right of the screen. Click the arrows to raise or lower your bet amount.
2. All the other guides and settings are hidden behind the little plus symbol floating at the top right, above the Spin button. Click for the volume control and a link to the paytable and game rules.
3. Before you start playing, it’s always good to set a budget and some win and loss limits. Even if you’re playing or free, it gets you into good habits and stops you losing control of the game.
4. If you don’t like having to manually click the big Spin button every time you want the reels to turn, there is an autoplay option set just below it. Open the controls to set number of spins, loss limit, cash increase, single win or bonus triggering as stopping points for autoplay.
5. Now all you need to do is have fun!
Bet & Win Sizes
You can set a bet between 20 and 40,000, which is a pretty impressive range. Without allowing for bet modifiers, the paytable for the base game offers the following maximum payouts for each symbol:
J, Q, K - 20
Jokers - 40
Prince - 100
Queen - 150
King - 250
Wild - 1000
Joker’s Riches 2 Bonus Features & Free Spins
Lasting Loot Activated Wilds
A version of this feature can appear in both the base game and free games. In the base game, a Wild appearing on the fifth reel will replaces all Wilds of that colour with a Joker of the same colour, whilst Jokers of that colour will become Wild Jokers. This will last for three spins.
After one free game, all green Jokers will turn into Joker Wilds. The orange Joker will follow suit after three free games, and the blue Joker will do the same after five free games, until free games have finished.
These are triggered by hitting three bonus symbols, which will award a flat rate of seven free games. This isn’t the most exciting free spins round in the world, but it’s better than nothing and it does have the activated Wilds to spice things up a bit.
It’s not the most radical or exciting of slots out there, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun playing Joker’s Riches 2. The bonus features, including free games, are a little thin, but the Medieval royal family alongside the card symbols makes for an interesting variation on an old theme. It also has a fairly simple layout and gameplay, meaning it shouldn’t take too long to get the hang of it. If you like the Joker theme but want a bit more from your free spins, you could try the Joker Troupe demo slot.
