Playing Lightning Joker slot is reminiscent of playing a retro slot in a casino or arcade – meaning you really just need to select a coin value and total bet size (your coin size is multiplied by the slot's five paylines to create the total bet in the middle of the interface).
Once you're happy with the bet size, you simple need to click Spin to start the round; no more interaction is needed during the round, even if you trigger the bonus features. You can click next to the Spin button to set 10-1000 Autospins, and also click on the Settings (Gear icon) button to customise sounds, speed and loss limits.
Lightning Joker slot's retro design will have you recreating arcade slot sessions from decades gone by – whether you used to play them for real, or just want to experience the old school vibe for yourself. The graphics are bright, with electro styling of the 80's and a chunky look to the reels.
Lightning Joker slot is has a classic old school reel structure, with a solid 3X3 reeled screen. There are five paylines, which are always automatically spun and can't be changed.
To select a bet size, you need to tap the Coin button to slide the value between €0.02 and €10; your coin is then multiplied by five to create your actual spin value between €0.10 and €50 for true high rollers.
Few players will get close to wanting to spin on the max – so be sure to select a betting level that lets you play safely and supports value for money slot sessions.
