Dark Joker Rises Slot Review

Released: January 2015

The Dark Joker Rises slots game is produced by Yggdrasil Gaming. Yggdrasil Gaming take their name from Norse mythology where Yggdrasil is a magical tree where dragons lived and Odin sacrificed himself. Yggdrasil Gaming are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment – with a strong focus on the development of slots games – but have gained a strong portfolio of clients and are now branching out to round out their games offerings with other types of casino games. 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 House Edge of Dark Joker Rises is 3.7% to 20.3%. We assume the variation in House Edge is accounted for by differing player strategies.

Venture into the dark world of the joker.

The Dark Joker Rises game has 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. This game has with 5 paylines and you can bet one coin per payline. Wins pay both left to right and right to left.

There is no Wild symbol when playing Dark Joker Rises.

There are two bonus features when playing Dark Joker Rises. The first bonus feature is activated any time you receive three or more of the ‘Dark Joker’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded a mystery cash prize of between 1000 and 6000 coins with larger prizes being available for wins with more Dark Joker scatter symbols.

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. Jokerizer mode ends when you have either exhausted the won funds or receive a mystery win of 500 coins or more. After a mystery win you may receive a free respin. If you receive a respin all reels containing a Dark Joker spin are locked guaranteeing a further Dark Joker mystery win. During Jokerizer mode, if you have more than 200 coins available you can choose to bet 200 coins per spin. When you do this a Dark Joker symbol is locked in place in the middle position of reel 3.


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.
