This video slot is simple looking; the design of the slot conveys a modern feeling with a structured reel canvas and a thinly lined frame. A deep space scene makes us remind of the infinite time of the universe. Typical fruit symbols bring us back to the more recent period of early slot machines while the timepieces showcase the advance in technology to measure time.
In the background it shows beautiful night, and you will see beautiful decorations all around the reels. Symbols have the Joker, Sun dials, Hourglass, Pocket Watch, Digital Watch, but also grapes, plums, lemons or cherries.
Chronos Joker is a video slot in a 3×3 format with five fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three matching symbols or in combination with a wild symbol on a line from left to right only. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet, you can bet from 0.05 to 100 credits per spin.
The pay symbols start at the low end with cherries, lemons, plums and grapes, awarding 0.4x to 1x your bet for a single three of a kind. They are complemented by four types of timepieces, each from a different era – sundial, sand clock, pocket watch and smartwatch. Hit three on a line to win 1.4x to 4x your stake. The Joker is the wild, substituting for all other pay symbols. He is also the top payer with 16x your bet when three appear on a line.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Chronos Joker” and will substitute for all symbols.
Chronos Joker Slot Features
The significant key to the gameplay and big wins on the slot are the stacked symbols as they will trigger one of six Respin features. Play’n GO finalized to give up a typical free spins round and added instead a modern twist with a flurry of different respins.
Landing two full stacks of matching or different symbols on any two reels will trigger one re-spin feature based on what multiplier is active. The game will re-spin the reel that does not contain a fully stacked symbol. If the stacks are different, then the one with the lower-value symbol will re-spin first. The standard feature ends at this point and any potential wins are then paid.
However, here comes twist that can have quite an impact on your potential winnings. Watch out for the win multiplier bar at the top of the game window as it can randomly activate while the respin is in progress. Based on what win multiplier is awarded, it will trigger one of three Respin features that will guarantee a win.
Standard Multiplier – There is a random chance that a multiplier may be applied to any one of your spins. You will know that this has happened if the multiplier panel above the reels highlights a multiplier. If the highlighted multiplier is blue then it can range from x2 the bet up to x10 the bet.
Super Multiplier – If the panel above the reels highlights a multiplier in red then you will have hit a Super Multiplier, which ranges from x4 the bet, all the way up to x20 the bet. Again this triggers at random and any wins that they are applied to will also be doubled.
Double Stacks – Symbols in this slot come in stacks. If you can land 2 fully stacked reels then you will trigger one the special respin features. There are 6 in total and the one you are awarded will depend on the multiplier that is in play when the double stack lands. Each one is described below.
Spins of the Future – If you have a standard multiplier at x2 the bet in play, along with 2 double stacks then you will trigger the Spins of the Future feature. Respins will begin and each time you fail to land a win the multiplier will increase up to a maximum of x10 the bet. Respins will continue until you land a wining spin.
Spins of the Present – If you have a standard multiplier at x3, x4 or x5 the bet in play, along with 2 double stacks then you will trigger the Spins of the Present feature. Respins will continue until you land a winning bet and the multiplier will remain at the level that it triggered.
Spins of the Past – If you have a standard multiplier at x10 the bet in play, along with 2 double stacks then you will trigger the Spins of the Past feature. Respins will begin and each time you fail to land a win the multiplier will decrease down to a minimum of x2 the bet. Respins will continue until you land a wining spin.
Super Multiplier Spins of the Future – If you have a Super multiplier at x4 the bet in play, along with 2 double stacks then you will trigger the Super Multiplier Spins of the Future feature. Respins will begin and each time you fail to land a win the multiplier will increase up to a maximum of x20 the bet. Respins will continue until you land a wining spin.
Super Multiplier Spins of the Present – If you have a Super multiplier at x4, x6 or x8 the bet in play, along with 2 double stacks then you will trigger the Super Multiplier Spins of the Present feature. Respins will continue until you land a winning bet and the multiplier will remain at the level that it triggered.
Super Multiplier Spins of the Past – If you have a Super Multiplier at x20 the bet in play, along with 2 double stacks then you will trigger the Super Multiplier Spins of the Past feature. Respins will begin and each time you fail to land a win the multiplier will decrease down to a minimum of x4 the bet. Respins will continue until you land a wining spin.
Chronos Joker Jackpot
There is no jack-pot in Chronos Joker, and this isn’t one of Play’n Go’s highest-paying slots. The maximum win possible is 1,600x which is a quite far from their usual 5,000x, so a Chronos Joker progressive jackpot would have been a fun addition here.
RTP and Volatility
The game has medium variance (6/10) with a default RTP of 96.54%. Some operators choose the secondary RTP of 94.57%, always make sure to read the help files to find out which version you will be playing. There aren’t as many big wins landing, but there is a good mix of small and big wins to keep things interesting.
It’s very likely that many casinos like Mr Green and Karamba will offer Chronos Joker bonus spins to let you try this game out for yourself.
Chronos Joker Mobile
Chronos Joker is an excellent choice for mobile play, since it was almost destined to be played on a smaller screen.
- Stacked symbols
- Respins bonus features
- Smaller payouts
- No jackpot
- No free spins
Other than it is apparent simple, there is a lot to like about this slot. However you only get 3 reels and there are only 5 playlines, considers as a recipe for dull disaster. The random multipliers seem to trigger quite regularly, as do your double stacks, making this a slot that feels like something could happen on every spin. There are not enough Free Spins, which is disappointing, but this one makes up for it through those re-spins that assures a win with a multiplier. You get wilds and you get a very aggressive house edge, making this a slot that we would thoroughly recommend.
Over all it’s a decent slot, the win potential won’t excite you much but I can see the game delivering consecutive wins in the 100x to 250x range. Anything more will be quite a task. For the maximum of 1,600x your bet you will need a full screen of Jokers with an x20 win multiplier. According to the game sheet, the chance for that to happen is 1:3.68011E-07 or in clear numbers 1:36.8 million spins. That might take some time to roll in.
