Joker 10000, released in May 2017, is a Betdigital Ltd-owned video slot distributed by NYX Interactive and SG Digital. Clown, fruits, and classic slot machine are its themes. Joker 10000 has a sequel named Joker 10000 Deluxe (Betdigital; 2017). Other classic Betdigital-owned slot games include Blazing Hot 7’s, Mega Pots Mega X, and Super Pots Bar-X. The rival games include Joker 8000 from Microgaming, All Ways Joker from Amatic Industries, and Joker Jackpots (May 2019) from Electric Elephants Games.
The slot name “Joker 10000” refers to the highest bet multiplier that its players can win, thanks to the clown-inspired mystery prize. All ordinary symbols require three combinations, while the clown requires two or three combinations. The side game is all about guessing colors.
Joker 10000 Game Characteristics
Joker 10000 has a white-and-yellow 3X3 grid with separate reels fastened together with five blue pins that point towards the pay lines’ direction. It has two side games: a gamble game and a so-called “Supermeter” game. Joker 10000 is a multiplier slot with regular payouts set between X20 and X10000, and has five adjustable pay lines.
Joker 10000 is fitted with six symbols—five ordinary symbols and a special symbol. The ordinary symbols are: a green-leafed pair of cherries; a leafy lemon; a halved watermelon; a white-and-black “BAR”; and a gem-encased predominantly golden crown. The special symbol is a mystery prize-triggering happy clown amid red, golden and green clown’s caps.
These are the thirteen Joker 10000’s coin values (and the bet sizes for a single active pay line; coin value X2 bet: $0.01 (minimum bet), $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $2.50, and $5.00. Bet sizes for two active pay lines (coin value X4): $0.04, $0.08, $0.12, $0.16, $0.20, $0.40, $0.80, $1.00, $2.00, $4.00, $8.00, $10.00, and $20.00. Bet sizes for three active pay lines (coin value X6): $0.06, $0.12, $0.18, $0.24, $0.30, $0.60, $1.20, $1.50, $3.00, $6.00, $12.00, $15.00, and $30.00.
Bet sizes for four active pay lines (coin value X8): $0.08, $0.16, $0.24, $0.32, $0.40, $0.80, $1.60, $2.00, $4.00, $8.00, $16.00, $20.00, and $40.00. Bet sizes for five active pay lines (coin value X10): $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.40, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $2.50, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $25.00, and $50.00 (maximum bet).
The Joker 10000’s payouts for three winning combinations: paired red cherries pay X20; lemon has X40; watermelon gives X60; BAR offers X80; and crown pays X100. Two or three happy clowns offer between X20 and X10000 the staked amount. Two clowns reveal one mystery multiplier; three clowns guarantee X10000 the bet, but the player must set five active pay lines.
The gamble side game involves choosing between flickering black spade and red diamond playing card suits, wherein the black suit replaces “+BET” icon and red suit replaces “-BET” icon to enable the player click one of them. Immediately pressing “Spin” after winnings resulting from playing with five active pay lines unlocks the “Supermeter” side game—its winnings can be collected (by clicking “collect”) or transferred (by clicking “transfer”) before being gambled.
Maximum payouts for each pay line: one active pay line has X400; two active pay lines have X800; three active pay lines have X1200; four active pay lines have X1600; and five active pay lines have X10000 the $50.00 maximum bet, which amounts to $50000 non-progressive jackpot.
The good Joker 10000 software has a simple and classic user interface, with the buttons placed along the bottom, and slot machine sound effects. Although its 3D graphics are unanimated (apart from a flicker effect, digital counter, and audio prompt), Joker 10000 stands out specially for the Betdigital’s slot titles seemingly embedded on classic slot machines in the background.
