Joker’s Riches Wins Plaudits in Sweden
The independent iGaming developer High 5 Games is having a fantastic 2019 so far. Not only have they recently celebrated the launch of their 300th video slot, Queen of the Rose, but they have also just announced that several dozen of their slots are now live on the hugely popular SlotsMillion online casino, which has become a haven for slot fans in recent years.
One of these slots, Joker’s Riches, is proving to be a big hit with SlotsMillion players, as well as players of many other online casinos, and it is doing particularly well in Sweden. This Scandinavian country has witnessed an overhaul of its gambling regulations in the last year and that has given developers like High 5, and games like Joker’s Riches, the chance to appeal to millions of new customers.
A Royal Success
High 5 Games launched in 2012 with 14 land-based titles. They followed this with the launch of their 100th slot in 2014, followed by their 200th in 2017, making them one of the fastest growing online casino developers in the world right now.
Joker’s Riches is one of the standout slots in this vast portfolio. It is a HTML5 ready slot that uses a 3x5 format loaded with a huge 40 paylines. Players are tasked with assuming the role of a court jester as they try to win respect from the king and queen. If they succeed, then they will be invited into the castle for an exclusive party, which takes the form of a bonus feature.
Wild joker symbols pop-up throughout the base game and these can turn the game’s other joker symbols wild. There is a great soundtrack and impressive aesthetic all round—players are even treated to a trumpet march as they enter the bonus feature.
The goal of the bonus feature is to win a treasure chest that is packed full of coins and other treasures, gifting players a potentially huge win if they are lucky enough. Joker’s Riches has a medium volatility and it can be played on mobile devices.
The Success of Joker’s Riches
According to a spokesperson for High 5 Games, Joker’s Riches is one of the company’s “top-performing” titles in both Sweden and the United Kingdom, which are two of the biggest online gambling markets in the world right now. They also noted that they hope it will continue to be a big success as they expand their offerings into new gambling markets and continue to create even more top slots in the coming years.
Another recent deal that has greatly helped their expansion efforts was a contract they signed with BtoBet, a sports betting and iGaming platform. The deal will provide great benefits to both parties and should prove to be very lucrative for them.
High 5 Games have a large presence in the social casino sector, but are looking to turn those social plays into real money plays as they expand rapidly into the world of real money online gambling. They certainly have the credentials for it and if Joker’s Riches is anything to go by then they have the games for it as well.
