About Jack Hammer Slots
Fairytale-themed slots are ten-a-penny these days, but just like the tales themselves, the games they inspire are favourites with players everywhere.
NetEnt have got in on the act with Jack and the Beanstalk, an online video slot based on the classic tale of a dirt-poor boy who sells the family cow for a handful of beans but ends up a millionaire. Surely that’s the story of most gamblers?
The game is played on five reels and with 20 paylines of action. Symbols include 10-to-Ace icons made up of winding stalks, while an axe, watering can, goat, gargoyles and Jack himself.
The Jack and Beanstalk icon is Wild, and substitutes for all regular icons except the Scatters. But here’s where things get interesting. The Wild is a ‘Walking Wild’, which move progressively along the reels after each re-spin. This way, you bag yourself one or two free spins with some nice bonus cash added. Oh, and Wild wins claim a 3x multiplier.
The Treasure Chest Scatter triggers the bonus feature if you land three or more. You’ll win 10 spins to start with, with a further 5 won if you retrigger the feature.
However, look out for the Key symbol. If they land on Reel 5 in the bonus, and you keep on hitting them, you’ll unlock some juicy bonus Wilds. Three keys collected wins you stacked Wilds where moneybags are Wild; six keys wins you stacked Wilds with Golden Hens turning Wild, and nine Keys sees the next Wild on-screen turn into an expanding Golden Harp Wild.
With some great graphics and animation (check out the goat if you make a winning combo with it), together with a generous Free Spins round and the neat Walking Wild feature, Jack and the Beanstalk is a solid piece of NetEnt gaming.
