Joker Bombs by Hacksaw Gaming now live online

Hacksaw Gaming appears to have developed a severe case of the sweet tooth recently, as Joker Bombs is the company’s second video slot release inspired by Sweet Bonanza in a short period of time. Tasty Treats was a carbon replica of Candyland in terms of theme, but stood apart due to a new twist on the features. While the sugar rush is toned down in Joker Bombs, the game itself is even more reminiscent of Pragmatic’s highly successful installment.

Joker Bombs

Joker Bombs features a similar 6×5 scatter-pay grid with Cascading Wins, and similar to Pragmatic Play’s SB-inspired Gates of Olympus, the base game includes multiplier bombs. However, there are three distinct types of Joker Bombs, including one that can increase the total multiplier by up to x10. This appears to be the key to unlocking the 5,000x multiplier, as more lucrative bombs land more frequently during the bonus round.

To win, you must match between 8 and 15+ symbols anywhere on the 6×5 grid, and 15+ of the four premium candy symbols pays between 50 and 200 times your wager. The Cascading feature eliminates all winning symbols, and new and/or existing symbols then descend down to fill in the spaces. This process continues indefinitely as long as you continue to win, and it may result in multiplier bombs, as discussed below. Multiplier Bombs can land at any point during the game, and if multiples land during the same Cascading sequence, the multipliers are added together (or multiplied) before boosting the total win. There are three distinct sorts of bombs, each of which operates in the following manner:

● Normal Bomb – landing with a visible multiplier of x2, x3, or x4, which is added to the pending total win multiplier.

● Revealing Bomb – is a more advanced mystery bomb that lands with a question mark and reveals multipliers of x5, x10, x25, or x50. After the value is disclosed, the multiplier is added to the pending total win multiplier.

● The Epic Bomb – denoted by a ‘X’ shows a multiplier of x2, x3, x4, x5, or x10. The critical distinction is that this bomb multiplies the pending total multiplier, rather than adding to it.

Bonus Round

The Bonus Round is initiated when three or more jack-in-the-box joker symbols appear anywhere on the reels, and it begins with ten free spins. During the feature, multiplier bombs will appear more frequently, and you will have a greater chance of landing more lucrative multiplier bombs than in the standard game. Additionally, you receive +5 additional spins when three joker symbols appear in the same cascading free spin sequence. Finally, players from outside the United Kingdom, as well as those who reside in an eligible jurisdiction, can purchase the Bonus Round directly from the in-game menu. This will cost you 100x your bet and will guarantee you three joker scatters on the subsequent spin. By utilizing the Bonus Buy option, the top-tier RTP is reduced significantly, from 96.48 to 96.46 percent.
