Mystery Joker 6000 is a unique traditional slot and Wheel of Fortune hybrid, with dominant and recognisable classic fruit machine features. Together with the conventional slot icons – Cherries, Lemons, Watermelon, etc – the slot also features a Joker symbol which can unlock one of the three bonus games.
As uninspired as it may seem at the first glance, the selection of theme is actually quite refreshing, and the danger of becoming monotonous is avoided with the introduction of the Mystery Wheel, Super Meter and Respins.
The new generation of players may feel that the visual side of the slot and the theme itself is a bit outdated and overly simplified, but if you are a fan of retro slots as well as the Wheel of Fortune, it is highly unlikely that you will find a better combo than the Mystery Joker 6000; not to mention that the graphics and the animation style is perfectly fitting to the old school theme.
Play N Go is one of the most acclaimed software developers in the online gambling industry and although it may appear that this particular slot is not along the line of their recent, more advanced (animation-wise) releases, it is actually an upgraded re-make of the original Mystery Joker slot which become a great success soon after being launched.
There is no stopping for Play N Go; the developer continues to grow and expand across different markets. As of January 2018, their games have been certified in both Columbia and Spain and their portfolio enriched with the acquisition of Proactive Gaming.
How to Play It
Mystery Jackpot 6000 retains the 3 reels/5 paylines structure of the original release, with a notable difference in the command screen layout. The coin value is adjusted manually, just like in the slot’s predecessor.
To start playing, the player clicks on the Spin button, just next to the Auto Play tab, which allows you to start the automated spin sessions. The auto spins will run until the session expires and in accordance to the pre-selected options, which will halt the spins when a certain balance amount is reached, after a win or when a bonus round is unlocked.
In order for a payout to be generated, the player will need to line up at least three matching symbols.
As expected, when it comes to the slots’s bonus features, Mystery Joker 6000 exceeds the original release, threatening to take its place and maybe even send the Mystery Joker into oblivion.
The first major difference is the Mystery Wheel, activated by the combination of three Joker Symbols. Spinning the Wheel will award a random cash prize. For a combination of only two Joker icons, a Respin will be activated. The Respin feature can only be unlocked during the main game.
Winnings generated during the base game can either be collected or transferred over to the Super Meter, located in the right upper corner of the game screen. Transferring the funds over to the Super Meter rather than immediately collecting them, will increase the players’ odds of a more substantial winning amount.
The minimum bet one can place in Mystery Joker 6000 is $0.10, with 10 coins per spin, ranging from $0.01 to $10 in coin value.
The number of coins is doubled when Super Meter is activated and the highest amount one can win playing this slot is x6000 bet increase, awarded by spinning the mystery Wheel. Lower payout table is applied for landing the combination of the 7s, Stars, Bells and Fruit icons, with the theoretical return to the players of 96%.
If you happen to crave some good old fashioned fruit machine with an affordable betting range and a promising payout potential, your search may as well end here.
Mystery Joker 6000 is definitely not the most original slot that you will come across, but it is definitely one of the best Fruit theme games in the category and, with the exception of having a prolonged dead spins intervals, far from being boring.
One other thing that can be regarded as a shortcoming is the lack of Free spins. Instead, Mystery Joker 6000 offers respins in the main game, which can be regarded as a sort of a compensation.
