One of Play’nGo’s classic slots and still a player favourite, Fire Joker was created in 2016 and was the first in the ‘Joker’ series. A suitably volatile slot, with an RTP of 96.15%, Flaming Respins, Stacked Wilds, and a potential hot max win of 800x your stake, it’s no surprise this slot continues to catch on. Let’s take a closer look at how-to, as the tagline says, ‘Fight Fire with Fire’.

How to play Fire Joker Slots
As this is a classic slot, there are only three reels and five paylines and the reels are populated by the standard slot machine symbols of fruits, lucky 7s and gold stars. Set your stake by using the arrow buttons in the middle of the bottom of your screen, to change your amount, from 0.05 coins up to 100 coins. Then hit the ‘Spin’ button to the right or the ‘Autoplay’ button to the left.
How to win Fire Joker Slots
You need to match three symbols for a win. All wins are left to right, horizontally or diagonally and the winning paylines burst into flames to show you have caught a hot streak. The lower paying symbols are the fruits, while the lucky 7s, Bar and Star are the high-value icons. The Fire Joker acts as the Wild symbol and will substitute for all others to increase your chances of forming winning combinations.
Three wilds on a line will earn you 80x your stake. If you land a win with an X symbol, you will get 2X your stake and a win continuing a lucky 7 will grant you 25x your stake.
Special Features and Bonuses
There are only two bonus features in Fire Joker, but they provide plenty of excitement and winning potential.
Landing two full reels of any symbol will activate the Flaming Respin on the third reel. Landing one or two Wilds on the reel will give you a win, but you really want a full house of matching symbols. If successful, you will activate the second bonus feature - the Wheel of Multipliers.
Wheel of Multipliers
You can also activate the Wheel of Multipliers on a single spin, but a flaming respin is more likely, as it is activated by a full house.
The board is set on fire and a glowing wheel appears in the centre with different multipliers on the sections, from 2x to 10x. Whatever you land on is how much your winnings are multiplied by. This means if you have landed a full house of wilds and then spin a 10x, you can win 800x your stake.
Design & Theme
The design and theme are simple but stylish, harking back to the classic jester and joker slot machines of old. The reels are set against a two-tone harlequin diamond pattern in rich russet shades indicating we are in the fire joker’s domain. The symbols themselves are the classic fruits, gold bars and numbers that formed the basis for most land-based slot machines. Fire unsurprisingly features heavily, with wins shown by a line of fire and the background sparks to make it look like it is a crackling fire. The up-tempo music doesn’t distract from the game.
Fire Joker has a better than average RTP of 96.15%, meaning it pays back 96.15 coins on 100 coins spent to the players.
There’s plenty of fiery fun to be had with Fire Joker, particularly for those who enjoy an ‘old-school’ slot’. The graphics are good but not hyper realistic, and while there are no bells or whistles, there’s plenty of ‘on-theme’ touches. The 800x potential win is certainly enough to heat up the action, and the bonus features are well executed. In a world of megaways and complicated mechanisms, sometimes it's nice to go back to basics. Our final word? Fire Joker is simple but very effective.
