Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge from NextGen Gaming: Slot Review - this Golden Jester wants to lead you to the jackpot

Take on the mysterious golden Jester and nudge all those wilds to claim a huge jackpot!

The first thing that struck me about the game is the cover star is a sexy female jester covered in gold. I am sure there is a wee nod to Harley Quinn there. It is also set in an underwater casino so normality goes out the window here!

Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge is the much-vaunted sequel to Next Gen’s classic Jackpot Jester 50000. It is quite similar to the original but you know what they say...imitation is the highest form of flattery!

It is a 3 reel slot game with 3 rows and 5 paylines and has some cool features such as the Super Game which opens an additional slot game within the game.

Special Features

The first feature of this game worth highlighting is the Wild Symbol which is depicted by the Golden Jester. It substitutes for all other symbols in the game.

The main feature of this game is the Super Game. In order to activate this feature, you have to bet at least 20 coins. Each time you land a winning combination across the reels then it is transferred to the Super Game balance. Once you have some coins in the Super Game, you can either collect your winnings, continue playing to increase your winnings or just use your winnings in the Super Game. It is worth noting that you need to have at least 100 credits saved up in order to play the Super Game.

It’s a great feature and really innovative how you can toggle between two slots while playing.
Another nice addition to this feature is that Wild Symbols are stacked and if just a part of a stack of wilds land then the whole stack will be nudged and this greatly enhances your chances of a huge win. If you manage to fill all the wilds then you will the massive jackpot.

Theme and Graphics

The game looks great and I really liked the retro feel of it. From the use of old-school symbols such as Cherries and Bars through to the flickering lights on the slot itself.

The background has a very aquatic theme with fish swimming slowly among the reefs and clams opening and closely their shells. The symbols swoosh along the reels quite nicely.

The music is quite trippy and a little bit techno but it suits the game’s theme quite well.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 3 reels and 5 paylines and an insane jackpot of 100000 coins! The RTP is a respectable 95.1% which is a decent return the more you play the game.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.

0,01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.04, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.25, 0.50, 1, 2, 2.5
