Jester’s Wild Slots

Jester's-WildJester’s Wild is the kind of game that is simply inspired by gambling, no matter what form it takes. Some of its symbols are playing cards that look better than the usual ones, others are with the roulette wheel, with dice or wheels of fortune. Whatever image is shown, you can be sure that a connection exists with the world of gambling. It’s one of the slot machines which has been created by developers from WGS.

One of the modern WGS titles, Jester’s Wild offers 30 bet lines and 5 reels to support them. There are bonus features, wheels of fortune, free spins, 6x multipliers and wilds. In addition to those features, there are also prizes of up to $60,000.

Features of Jester’s Wild

If you play Jester’s Wild, you get from it free spins, scatter symbols, a wild and multipliers. A bonus game can also be triggered along the way.

The Jester symbol, where this character is shown as he’s holding a WILD card, will be the only one to act as a substitute for other symbols. What I enjoyed most about it was its ability to form combinations and pay very well in the process, up to 4,000x the line wager. Given its substitution ability, you also get this symbol to be part of other combinations when it lands on the right payline, which has the rest of the required symbols in place.

Jester Bonus Feature

Whenever a Jester icon lands on the 3rd reel, in any random location, it triggers a very special feature. Four symbols with Jester wilds on them will be placed on the slot’s other reels, so you will have a total of five such symbols present at the same time.

Free Games Feature

The free spins are obtained with the help of a bonus feature, which spins the wheel of fortune to decide how many spins you get, and with what multipliers. You need three scattered Wheel of Fortune symbols first though, or the feature can’t trigger.

The first time the wheel spins, you will find out what kind of multiplier you will get to use, the maximum value being 6x. The second spin of the wheel brings you a number of free spins, the maximum amount being 32 in this case.

The possibility to retrigger the free spins is there, as long as you land the 3 scattered Wheel of Fortune icons once again.

Spin-Up Your Way

A feature that triggers randomly, it will offer you a wheel of fortune with values from 0 to 5 on it. That value applies to payouts from winning combinations, and the prize can be up to 5x bigger.


Betting options and jackpots

The bets you can place in this game require up to three coins for each payline. Since 30 lines are used, you can wager with 90 coins each round. The value of a coin reaches a maximum of $5, so in theory you can end up using bets of $450.

The rewards offer you back 4,000 times the line bet, which would mean at best $60,000 from 12,000 coins. If the multipliers from the free spins get involved, the payouts could reach an impressive value of $360,000.

Design and symbols

Though a lot of symbols in this game are inspired by playing cards, I’ve appreciated the fact that the developers didn’t just use standard icons here. They actually worked a bit on the images, and the Queen icon shows you a woman dressed as a ruler, and the same goes for the King which is holding a short sword. Other images benefit from the same treatment, done in a cartoon style but attractive enough for the purposes of this game.
