The Joy of Six

We’ll bet someone in the software development team at Microgaming was having a good old snigger when they announced the title of the Joy of Six slot. However, there is no relation whatever to the illustrated sex manual of the 1970s – rather an enjoyable five-reel online slot with thirty pay lines and a casino-style look and feel. It comes complete with scatters, free spins, wilds, multipliers and a bonus game and an attractive maximum jackpot of 15,000 coins.

As The Joy of Six slot has a casino-themed appearance, you’ll not be surprised to see the black and green colour scheme that’s reminiscent of a gaming table at a real-life casino. There are also casino chips behind the slot’s title at the top of the reels. And several gambling-themed symbols like croupiers, dice and betting chips along with glasses of whisky, cigars and cards 9 through to Ace. Winning combos completed with the game’s logo, the scatter, and the stack of chips pay the most, offering up to 7,500 for five scatter symbols.
The betting range of 0.01 to 150.00 and a max coins per line of 5 makes The Joy of Six slot a great all-rounder for all types of online slots fans.

Wild Symbol:

The wild symbol is the Red Dice, which appears on all five reels and can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter. The wild is also significant during the free spins round, which we’ll expand on in a moment. Any winning combinations that include the wild during the base game includes an x2 multiplier.

Scatter Symbol:

The scatter symbol is the Female Croupier, and three, four or five of her featured anywhere on the reels will instantly reward you with 15 free spins.

Free Spins Round:

Three or more scatters will award you with 15 free spins. During the free spins feature, all wins that include the Wild Dice are multiplied by as much as x6. The value of this multiplier is determined by an automatic roll of the dice, meaning you could receive as little as x1 or as much as x6.

Double-up Feature:

If you want to take a risk with your winnings to see if you can multiply them, you might want to try the Double-up feature. To double the value of your stake, you’ll need to guess whether the next playing card that the game deals is black or red. Alternatively, if you’re feeling daring, you can also select one of the four suits for the chance to multiply your stake by four. Each time you use the Double-up feature, you can either gamble all or half of your winnings.

Our Verdict:

The Joy of Six is a bold, bright slot. If you’re looking for that comforting feel of sitting in a real-life casino, it will hit the nail on the head thanks to its theme and casino-style sound effects. The random multipliers in the free spins round can help your winnings add up significantly and, as the free spins feature can be re-triggered, there’s the potential to enjoy an impressive payout.
