Jester’s Wild Online Slot For All Fools Day


April 1is celebrated as All Fools Day. The exact origin of this has been lost in the mists of time, but it was around in the medieval courts. The jesters helped to lower tensions through their good humoured banter and were honoured on this day. There are a number of online slots featuring jesters, but among the best is Jester’s Wild. It is from the portfolio of Wager Gaming Technology and can be played at online casinos like Liberty Slots.

The theme is a mix of the court and the casino. The symbols are crafted in detail and appear boldly on the reels. Peppy music plays in the background. As expected, the jester is the centre of attraction. He is the wild symbol and also awards the highest line payouts. Five jester symbols pay 4000 times the line bet, which introduces a fair bit of volatility in the slot game. The next highest payouts are offered by the Ace of Diamonds. Then follow three casino symbols, which are roulette wheel, craps table and slots machine. King, queen and jack appear as actual playing card images. The final symbols are 10 and 9.

The Jester Bonus feature is triggered when a jester symbol appears anywhere on the third reel. A jester walks on to the screen, waves his marotte and converts four randomly selected symbols into wilds. So you have a minimum of five wilds on the reels.

When you land three scatter wheel symbols anywhere on the reels, the free spins feature is activated. You are first paid an entry level amount equal to your total bet. You spin the first wheel to win a payout multiplier of up to 6x. Then you spin the second wheel to win up to 32 free spins. The free spins can get retriggered. You get the entry level bonus again and the same number of free spins with the same multiplier.

After any winning spin you have the option to activate the Spin Up feature. You stake the payout and then spin a wheel. You can win up to 5x the staked amount depending on the multiplier indicated by the wheel. Be careful, because half the wheel segments have jesters, and these are dangerous in this feature. If you hit a jester then you will lose the staked payout.

Jesters Wild has the standard 5x3 structure with 30 selectable paylines. The maximum total bet per spin is $150, which is great for high rollers.
