Oh, the joy of getting six! Six what? Makes you wonder doesn't it? Well, that joy of getting six refers to getting the number six on the dice, the maximum number on the dice, the maximum number of multiplier you can get in this game. If you don't get the six, just too bad, less joy for you. If you keep getting the ones and the twos, better cry your heart out, because the game isn't going to get any better than that. It's an old game from Microgaming, playing with 30 paylines, and yet another clone of In It To Win It and Sovereign Of The Seven Seas. Yep, even from years ago, Microgaming has been keeping up with their cloning and recloning of their games, for more quantity, not for better quality, sad to say. Recognise the same exact card symbols being used in this game too? But of course, this may not be apparent to most players, because the main symbols are different, and the Wild symbols play and pay differently too, but everything else remain basically the same.
The Dice is the Wild symbol, a typically dumb symbol that doesn't pay anything for itself. It doubles all wins with it in the base game, but pays according to the dice number during the free spins, from 1x up to 6x. It substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol, and doesn't become stacked or expanded with wins. The Lady Dealer is the Scatter symbol, paying 100x the total bet for getting 5 of her, and getting 3 or more of the Scatters trigger 15 free spins, without any multiplier. However, wins with the Wild symbol are multiplied by 6x, and more free spins can be retriggered. No wild symbol means no win multiplier, simple as that. Not really good but bad. The other symbols in the game pay from 20x down to 3.3x the total bet for getting 5 of each kind. The paytable? Yet another very low one.
What is it about most Microgaming games that make them always start damn blardy cold? This is one aspect of MG games that I could never appreciate until now, and why almost 99% of my plays always end up with losses! Sheesh! The Joy Of Six didn't come out any better than the rest, but at least it gave me 1 Free Spins game when I was almost through playing it. The payout? A meagre 15x my bet amount, as expected. Personally, I wouldn't know for sure if this game can pay any better, which it should, but I'll never know. Nope, no way would I risk losing more of my money just to find out. It's just not worth it.
