The middle ages have a lot to answer for, the joker or jester being its least offensive legacy possibly. How else are the Royals supposed to enjoy themselves whist the masses revolt, other than being verbally tickled into a writhing ball by a chap in a funny hat with ADHD. Booming games have dragged him into the 21st century, but been kind enough to leave him in his natural surroundings with Joker’s Wild!
Presented over a 5 x 3 setup with a reasonable 25 paylines, this luxurious looking slot may be a tad off the mark when it comes to middle ages chic, but hey how would we really know in truth.
