Would you like to relive the thrill associated with the classic arcade slots? You’ll be thrilled with what Mega Joker has up its sleeves. Released in 2011 by NetEnt, don’t expect eye-popping visuals; Mega Joker seeks to impress with revolutionary gameplay and juicy rewards.


NetEnt didn’t want the Mega Joker to be associated with anything regular. Little wonder the slot integrates a 99% RTP and high volatility. What’s better? There’s a massive jackpot in the mix. And landing certain symbols thrice across the reels will earn you the game’s 200x maximum payout. 


To give players a slot adventure they won’t forget in a hurry, Mega Joker integrates a Supermeter Mode. But how does this extra work? Our review holds all the answers.

Slot Features

Mega Joker is a classic slot. It doesn’t have the long list of features like most modern slot games. There are just two extras available — the Supermeter Mode and Progressive Jackpot.

But should that stop you from trying out this slot? Our answer’s a resounding no! 


Supermeter Mode

The Supermeter Mode occurs on the top reels. You’ll activate this round when you land a winning combination on the lower reels (AKA base game). To enter the Supermeter Mode, your base game win must be less than 2,000 coins. 


Once the Supermeter is triggered, your base game winning value automatically becomes the round’s wagering amount. Here, all five paylines are active to increase your earnings.


This bonus round also has an extended paytable, integrating grapes, oranges, and sevens into the reels. Here, the sevens replace the Treasure Chests to deliver a 2,000-coin payout. 


Another aspect that’s peculiar to the Supermeter is the Bet feature. When you make a base game win and unlock the bonus round (Supermeter), you can make a 20, 40, 100, or 200-coin bet. 


However, note that your bet must tally what you won during the basic round. 


Here’s some context for you:


If you make a 20-coin win in the base game, you’ll only have access to the 20-coin wager in the Supermeter Mode. Earning a win of 60 coins in the base game gives you two options — three rounds of 20-coin bets or one 40-coin and 20-coin wager. 


Furthermore, a winning combination that delivers 200 coins in the base game will give you access to all bet rounds. Here, you can place wagers at your discretion to maximise your earnings.

Irrespective of your winnings, you’ll return to the base game once you exhaust awarded coins. 


But there’s more:


Each bet tier in the Supermeter Mode has an attached reward. Let’s see what you’ll need to land to earn the maximum payout in these wager segments:

Bet Tier
Symbol Landed to Earn Max Win (Format)
Maximum Payout
Three Jokers on a bet line
1,000 coins
Three Jokers on a bet line
2,000 coins
A Joker in the middle reel
2,000 coins
Joker anywhere on the reel
2,000 coins

With these explanations, you might think that the Supermeter earned us some goodies, right? 


Drumroll….. it did!

After multiple activations, the Supermeter finally earned us a winning combination worth 600 coins (which translates to €60 as coin wins are divided by 10).

The base game (lower reels) also receives praise from us as we earned winnings valued at 100 coins on multiple occasions. And these regular €10 wins accumulated into something worthwhile.


Progressive Jackpot

Mega Joker has a Progressive Jackpot. Anytime the game is played, 3% of every bet contributes to its overall value. During gameplay, we won a ₹1,53,127 Jackpot. 

Mega Joker Slot Verdict

Mega Joker reminds us of the good ol’ days of arcade games with its vintage-esque design and fruity symbols. However, what sets this slot apart is the availability of two reels — the lower reels and higher reels (AKA Supermeter).


Although the Supermeter Mode can deliver the game’s highest payout of 2,000 coins, we’d classify the bonus round as tight-fisted. Why? It earned us only one notable win. Afterwards, it shut its winning doors. 


Fortunately, the base game (lower reels) earned us numerous low-value payouts. And by collecting most of these wins rather than using them to wager in the Supermeter, we accumulated a worthwhile amount within a short period.


Despite being a slot that has been around for over a decade, Mega Joker holds its own with a 99% RTP and high variance. If you seek huge wins with little wagers, consider giving it a go. 

Similar Slots to Mega Joker

Fire Joker Slot. Dark red background with fire at bottom and joker with hat in the centre.

Fire Joker

Play’n GO released the Fire Joker slot in 2016. Like Mega Joker, this game has a 3×3 layout. But Fire Joker’s RTP (94.23%) is lower than what Mega Joker features. 


Fire Joker has more extras than Mega Joker, hosting a Respin of Fire Feature and Multiplier Wheel. We enjoyed the Respin of Fire add-on as it was easy to trigger and earned us juicy winning combinations.

Regarding payouts, Fire Joker has an 800x maximum win — four times what you’ll get on Mega Joker.

Triple Jokers Slot Pragmatic Play. Purple Background with gems floating and joker in front.

Triple Jokers

Pragmatic Play released the Triple Jokers slot in 2019. This game is similar to Mega Joker, hosting a 3×3 layout and five active paylines. Wielding a 96.47% RTP, Triple Jokers is over 2% adrift of what’s obtainable on Mega Joker.

Like Mega Joker, Triple Jokers have one notable feature — Respin Until You Win Feature. But with a max payout of 1,000x, Triple Jokers stands tall in the maximum win department.
