They lease their games out to casinos using other platforms as a bolt on package. Yggdrasil Gaming publish the Return to Player/House Edge of their slots games within the game help file.

The second bonus feature is activated any time you receive a winning combination. When this happens you can choose to collect your win or can spin for 20 coins/spin in Jokerizer mode. In Jokerizer mode any spin that results in two or more of the Dark Joker scatter symbol awards a mystery prize of between 20 and 6000 coins.

There’s a lot to like about Dark Joker Rises. Visually it’s attractive. The bonus features are engaging. The sound track is well chosen for the theme of the game. However, the House Edge range is potentially huge and poor strategy can clearly cost the player dearly when playing this game. As the optimum strategy for this game is unknown, it’s likely best for the life expectancy of your bankroll to choose another game.
