How to Play

This traditional, retro-themed slot game is easy to play for both beginners and experts alike. Follow these simple instructions to get the game started:

  1. Choose your wager amount by clicking the minus and plus symbols on the bottom of the display (or clicking directly on the number you want to bet). You can have a minimum bet of £0.50 or wager as much as £100!
  2. Click the big, green SPIN button on the bottom right-side of the display to start spinning the reels. Select the AUTO PLAY button in the bottom left corner of the screen to set the auto spin feature.
  3. Watch for winning combinations of the six classic game symbols and spin again when ready!

As a 3-reel, 5-payway slot, you’d expect only a few symbols on this near-classic slot… so watch out for:

  • Joker Hat Scatter
  • Gold Star
  • Bell
  • Grapes
  • Lemon
  • Cherries

Important symbols in Mystery Joker:

  • Scatter: Joker Hat
  • High value symbols: Gold Star, Bell and Grapes


While there isn’t a progressive jackpot attached to this slot, you can still rack in 10,000 credits with the top jackpot on Mystery Joker. This game has an RTP of 96.98% making it a med-high variance slot, so winning isn’t too infrequent, which we like.

Special Features and Bonuses

For a basic slot game, we were happy to find a few bonus features to sweeten the deal:

  • Free Spins Scatter Feature: land three Joker Hat scatters and receive 10 free spins on the main board, these free spins can be retriggered during play for as many as 50 free spins.
  • Mystery Win Feature: land two of the same symbol and a Joker Hat to receive a Mystery Win during the Free Spins Feature. A Mystery Win is worth anywhere between £1 and £100.

Graphics and Sounds

The graphics, music and sound effects are true to the old-school theme of this classic slot game. While playing Mystery Joker you’ll listen to retro, arcade-style music as the 2D drawings of bells, stars and fruits scroll down the reels. The frame of the display is full of yellow stars that light up with wins and when the music picks up. It’s not a game to be wowed by in terms of graphics but it’s one that sticks to its true value as a classically-themed slot.
