Joker Gems slot announcement- ELK is back!

ELK hasn’t really released many slots this year.  They did release ‘Platooners’ recently which is a fun slot to play with potential., but that is the only one for the year really worth mentioning.

They have finally announced a big release and it looks exciting. The new slot is called Joker Gems and set to release on all sites with the provider 4th September. It is a very vibrant unique slot with a 50k jackpot! This is ELK’s first, so it’s nice to have something new from the provider. The game has an RTP of 96.3% with a max win of 700x bet and 120k with the jackpots too. Bet sizes are the standard 0.20- £100.

joker gems base game

Base Game

The slot is a grid of 5 reels by 5 rows. In the base game, the symbols will create clusters if there are 3 identical connected symbols. There will then be a respin and they will keep respinning as long as there are more of the identical symbol connecting to the original cluster or adding to a newly made one during the respins.

This feature reminds of the base game in ‘Northern Sky’.  As soon as you have a spin with no symbols adding to the cluster/s there will be a normal spin next and the reels will reset.

There is a Light Chaser feature also in the base game. This is randomly triggered by any spin and will travel over the reels and will stop in random positions. It will award players a cluster win of at least 4 or 5 identical symbols then there is a respin for a chance to rack up bigger clusters.

elk jackpots

The Jackpots can only be won if a player manages to land a predefined cluster pattern. So each jackpot will have its own cluster pattern, so if the player manages to land it they will win the jackpot which seems a bit confusing but I’m sure it will be better explained by ELK soon. The higher the bet the better chance players have of winning these jackpots which I feel is wrong.

I think no matter what bet size it should be an equal chance for everyone to win them. The three Jackpots are; 10k, 20k and 50k. Players can win these unlimited times too.

There is no bonus confirmed, but because it is a jackpot game and the style indicates to me there will not be one. But we can always hope.

Overall I am really excited to play this slot, the graphics look insane and it seems to have some serious potential. Really glad ELK are trying something different and are finally announcing more slots. More information will be posted when I get the chance to try the slot.
