I am a rare breed in that I'll many times take an old-school looking classic slot over an over-complicated video slot any day of the week. Because of that, I was geeked when I first laid eyes on NextGen Gaming's Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge slot, which gives us a multi-tiered classic slot that is a real joy to play.
Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge is a 3 reel, 5 payline video slot that features two tiers tied into it. The game works with players trying to set up a win on the bottom reels by matching 3 of the same symbols throughout the game. Once you end up banking at least 100 credits, you can opt to move to the upper reel in the game, where wins are paid out with higher win totals, and joker symbols are nudged to fill an entire reel.
Symbols in Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge include cherries, lemons, plums, strawberries, bells, diamonds, 7s, and the golden jester, which is the game's wild. The symbols are identical for the upper reels as well, but the payments are inflated. The slot has a posted RTP of 95%, which can rise to 95.1% if you play a 20 credit base and take advantage of the Super Game upper reels.
I have put some serious time into this slot and simply love how simplistic yet fun the game is. The game seems to really have some of that old school charm I love, and I really enjoyed the upper reels, which essentially serve as a gamble feature within the game, albeit with expanded payouts.
A game like Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge goes to show you that you don't need to have an overly complex game for your customers. I'm more than content to spend my time spinning the reels here, and I think you'll really enjoy it too.
