The Joy of Six Slot Review

Sadly there’s no spelling mistake in the title, this really is the Joy of Six not a certain book written by Alex Comfort in the 1970s. That book gave a lot of people some comfort with its instruction manual and some people actually read the words I hear. Anyway this has nothing to do with that book but if not typed right it could lead to an interesting Google Search.

What we do have here is a slot from top designers Microgaming that has a bit of a casino feel to it and concentrates on dice, where of course the numbers go from one to six. It’s a fun game that gives you plenty of chances to get some wins.

This is a five-reel game that has a total of 30 paylines in all. Those paylines aren’t a fixed amount so it’s up to you to decide your stake per line which can be anything from £0.01 to £5 and then the number of paylines you want to activate. That means this can be played from between £0.01 and £150.

There’s a green backdrop to the symbols which fits in with the casino table feel. There’s also some poker chips above the reels. The main symbols in the game are a pile of chips hopefully more than when play began, a stiff drink just in case they’re not and a Joy of Six chip. The wild symbol in this game is a red dice and can substitute for others to get you some good wins. Any you get that include the wild will be doubled It can’t substitute for the scatter symbol which is the croupier.

Before you start playing the game, do a bit of research. That means having a look through the paytable and then having some free games to see the game in action.

Bonus Games

If you can get at least three of the dealer scatter symbols then this gets you 15 free spins which is never a bad thing is it? A really important task during the free spins round is to get a winning combination that includes the wild dice. This can be worth anything up to a 6x multiplier depending on which face value comes up on the dice. It’s also possible to re-trigger the free spins while playing the bonus game.

When you do get a win in the base game there’s a chance to win some more via the gamble feature. It’s not compulsory so if you want just go onto the next spin. If you do take up the gamble then you simply have to correctly guess the colour of the next card to double your win or be even braver and try and get the next suit correct to quadruple your win. One good feature here is that you can use the ‘Half Gamble’ button to put just half your winnings on the line. At least you don’t lose all your win for an incorrect guess.

Conclusion

Yet another entertaining and potentially profitable slot from Microgaming. The theme is a good one with a cheeky title. The bonus game can be really profitable thanks to the multiplier and wild. Just be careful not to lose wins by taking up the Gamble Feature.
