Dice Lab, a business obsessed with the six-sided dice, has released a strange new online slot called Jolly Dicers. After the strange but fun Sugar Cubes slot, we decided to offer another game by this developer. That lovely small game was a little different, but not a terrible alternative for some light fun. Their follow-up, Jolly Dicers, is even harder to get into than their first. You may probably argue that it’s completely unique.
Jolly Dicers is not devoid of intrigue; in fact, its enormous potential is probably the game’s primary selling point. All aboard if you’re ready to learn the joys of dice rolling on a ship at sea!
Whether or if you end up enjoying Jolly Dicers depends largely on your first impression of the game. The visual style and animations have a bouncy quality that calls to mind early 2010s PC games like Tales of Monkey Island or, more tenuously, Age of Booty. The action of the play takes place on the ship’s deck. Initial play has symbols falling into a 4×4 inner grid, with a special symbols-filled 1×1 outer grid around it. Below this 6×6 matrix, a captain and his companion turn wheels on each spin to get the symbols moving. It’s interesting and reminiscent of NetEnt’s Finn and the Swirly Spin, but I can see how it could irritate certain players. There’s a lot happening, and it would be wonderful if people could disable the animations if they wanted to. It’s only a thought; maybe other people might enjoy the ambiance.
Betting time, before sending pirates to animate reels. To adjust the stake per spin, click the coin symbol and pick an amount between 10 p/c and $/€100. While auto-spin is available, free spins still have to be played manually. There are a few numbers to go over while we’re here. The return to player (RTP) percentage is fascinating, coming in at 96.39% during the main game (which isn’t too awful). However, it skyrockets to 97.5% during the Gamble Game (which we shall examine later). Finally, volatility is significant, with a 4/5 rating on Dice Labs’ Richter scale, so be ready for some chilly swings in between the hits.
When 4 or more identical symbols touch each other vertically or horizontally, a winning combination is formed. When a cluster occurs, the affected symbols are deleted and replaced by fresh ones, giving the player more opportunities to win. The standard payout icons are representations of the numbers 1 through 6 on a die made out of various colored wood pieces. Payouts start at 0.4 times the investment for 4 “ones” and go up to 9.6 times the stake for 16 “sixes,” indicating that the larger the number, the greater the payoff. There is also a wild that moves along the Orbiting mechanism throughout the base game. It can complete a cluster by substituting for any other symbol on the dice.
