Joker Drop™ from Stakelogic
By Simon Wright Oct 26, 2021
It’s a case of old meets new in Stakelogic’s innovative Joker Drop™, as the in-demand software developers combine the sights and sounds of a classic slot with cutting-edge PopWins™ Mechanic and more Free Spins than you can shake a jester’s stick at.
Joker Drop™ comes after Stakelogic entered into a licensing agreement with AvatarUX that will see the supplier get exclusive rights to the popular PopWins™ mechanic for a period of 6 months.
The deal will see Stakelogic incorporate the unique PopWins™ mechanic into its own games, with two titles already confirmed – Mystery Drop™ and the now launched Joker Drop™.
Played out on a starting 5 reels with 4 rows matrix, at first glance the game looks like a conventional retro slot with its range of fruit symbols, playing card values and lucky sevens. Looks can be deceiving, however, and when players land their first pay way win, they’ll soon see what Joker Drop™ is all about!
Once players land a win, things start to get really interesting. Here, the PopWins™ Mechanic kicks in and the reels will expand as a free respin is awarded and continue expanding in this way until they’ve reached a massive seven symbols in height each. Naturally, bigger reels mean more ways to win, with an incredible 16,807 pay ways possible.
Should the maximum 5 reels with 7 rows reel matrix be achieved, players will also unlock the Gamble Drop feature. Here, they’ll be awarded an initial number of Free Spins that they can either accept or gamble for the chance to win even more.
When they’re happy with their total, the Free Spins will begin, with a progressive multiplier applied that increases by +1 for every consecutive win to create huge payouts.
If players opt to place an additional wager and activate the Super Stake feature, extra scatter symbols will be available during Free Spins. Landing three of these will add a further three games to your current total, and though they can’t be gambled, more re-triggers are possible.
Players can also opt to buy into the feature directly with 5 Free Spins using the Buy A Bonus option.
As a final incentive, players will also be able to fill special coin and diamond meters by landing random symbols that feature these two icons in their top right corner. With five symbols required to fill each meter, the coin meter will add random, instant-win cash prizes to the reels, while the diamond meter will place wild symbols across the central reels to help players complete even more pay way wins.
Olga Bajela, CCO at Stakelogic, said: “We pride ourselves in offering our players & operator partners cutting-edge products and innovative features such as Super Stake™ and with the PopWins™ mechanic, we can further enhance our offering.”
“With the power of our state-of-the-art slots combined with a great mechanic like PopWins™, Joker Drop™ is destined to be chart topper.”
Marcus Honney, Managing Director at AvatarUX, said: “Our PopWins™ collection has been a great success for us and the games are performing extremely well with players, so we are thrilled to give the trademark rights to Stakelogic.”
“We are certain Stakelogic’s titles featuring the mechanic will be huge hits with operators and players alike.”
