Lightning Joker Slot Review – Yggdrasil Gaming

It has been a hot minute since I reviewed a slot by Yggdrasil Slots. The most recent was ‘Arthurs Fortune’, in May. ‘Arthurs Fortune‘ based on the Arthurian legends in the British isles is a fantastic creation by the studio and a fun one to play. My personal favourite release so far in 2020 is ‘Multifly‘, we are only halfway into 2020 so a long list of releases is still on the way. Next from the studio is something more old school. Titled ‘Lightning Joker‘, which is available to play now across all sites.

Lightning Joker looks basic within visuals, the background is a simple striped image. The real detail is within the reel set, with a gold border and bright coloured symbols. It is not always about the appearance of a slot if it makes up for this within gameplay and statistics. Symbols are just like from the old school machines, such as sevens, bells and various fruits.

This game has a setup of 3 reels by 3 rows, this includes 5 set pay lines. Lightning Joker is a high variance slot with a set RTP of 96.3% and max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.05 – £50.

There are 9 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by cherries, lemons, grapes and watermelons. There are also 3 premium symbols, these are represented by bells, sevens and stars. In addition to these regular symbols is a wild which substitutes for all regular symbols and joker. The highest paying symbol is the wild, which pays 16x for 3 across a pay line.

If 2 reels of the same symbols or wilds land this will trigger a ‘Rapid Respin‘. This will respin all non-winning symbols.

Filling the whole reel set with the same symbols or wilds will trigger ‘Multiplier Strike‘. Which will pay a multiplier up to 10x.

Landing 2 or more jokers will award a mystery win and multiply your bet up to 10,000x. 2 Jokers = 2x – 10,000x, 3 Jokers = x100 – 10,000x and 3 jokers on a pay line = x1000 – 10,000x.


Overall, I think this game is well suited for players who like simplified slots. But also appeal to players who like high variance, with simplified gameplay and features. Paired with a max win of 10,000x. Be sure to try the game out for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
