Ever since I first discovered online slots, they’ve become one of my favorite pastimes. For me, there are very few things that can compare to the buzz of a big win and the adrenaline of a long-awaited bonus feature. Of course, not everyone I know shares my enthusiasm for slots, but Lucas is one of a few friends who always understood what it was all about.
Every now and again, Lucas and I skip on a weekend out and instead of going clubbing or whatever, we spend a Saturday evening playing online slots. There are some games he loves, there are some I prefer, but in general, we have no problems picking what to play next.
The last time we played was a couple of weeks ago and it started like every other slots night we’ve had in the past. We went through the usual titles like Steam Tower, Piggy Riches, Danger! High Voltage, and a few more, and after maybe 20 different games, we were pretty much where we started.
As I was browsing through the slots to see what we could play next, Lucas (who had a few beers by this time), started shouting: “Let’s play Mega Joker.” I was surprised for two reasons. Firstly, in all the time we’ve been playing together, we’ve never touched that slot. Secondly, I don’t particularly like Mega Joker – it doesn’t have any interesting bonus features and it can eat up your balance pretty fast.
However, Lucas continued shouting “I promise, Mega Joker is one of the best video slots”. Knowing that there isn’t much point in arguing with my friend after he’s had a few, I sighed and proceeded to load Mega Joker. After all, we could get lucky with it once – it’s been known to happen to other people.
We’ve given the game more than a fair chance, playing through some 300 spins before calling it a day. As it turned out, it wasn’t our lucky night after all, but the slot played pretty well, so we ended up pretty much breaking even. There were a few good spins in there, but we always came just short of a truly big win.
That said, after giving it some spins, I must admit I changed my mind about Mega Joker slightly. Although I can’t say it is my new favorite slot, I can definitely see us playing it again and going for a big jackpot. We’ll see!
