Based on the classic English fairy tale, you follow jack through the five reels of this NetEnt Jack & the Beanstalk slot, as he attempts to win you the gold from the two headed giant.
And by win, we mean steal, because after all, Jack is technically a thief and a murderer. But that’s getting off track…
The 5×3 reels and 20 pay lines are graphically beautiful. You get little animation in the background of the reels, and it’s bright and airy theme give you a hint into the country life of our cheeky sociopath.
The symbols are an odd mix of the land of jack and the land of giants; watering cans, axes, and a grumpy goat sit next to the two headed purple giant, a glowing treasure chest and Jack himself. You’ll also find the popular high card symbols with a viney twist to tie in to the whole beanstalk theme.
The Jack and the Beanstalk slot machine is NetEnt’s most famous walking wilds game, a feature they’ve also used very effectively the Invisible Man.
If you’re not familiar with them, it’s pretty straight forward. Whenever a wild (in this case the Jack & the beanstalk slot logo) appears on the reels it will move one space to the left and give you a free spin until it falls off the left of the reels.
So if you get the wild on reel 5, you get 5 free spins as the wild moves from right to left. If you get the wild on reel 1, you only get one free spin, as the wild comes off the screen.
This makes this fairytale slot a huge amount of fun. It the base game they are pretty much your only opportunity to get wins that cover your bet and above.
The wilds multiply your bet by x3 and they give you extra free spins in the base game.
We’ve managed to get 18 consecutive free spins due to these wilds. That said, you usually get about 3 – 5 at any time.
Still even with with that, your chances for big wins is really in the the main free spins round. Of course, we should warn you right now that it doesn’t match the kind of wins you’ll find in jackpot slots like Mega Fortune Dreams or high variance games like Piggy Riches.
But what Jack and the Beanstalk slot has got is thrills. And the knowledge that whilst you could still win big, the action is constant, and your money won’t disappear down the drain in a few quick spins.
The free spins games are triggered by getting 3 ore more of the glowing treasure chest scatter symbols anywhere on the five reels.
Get 3 more during the free spins, and you’ll re-trigger them, giving you 5 more spins.
But if that was all, Jack & the Beanstalk video slot would be a little lacklustre. You’ll notice that there’s an extra key symbol added to the 5th reel from time to time.
The key unlocks extra wild bonus features throughout your free spins.
But how do you manage to unlock all 9 keys with only 10 free spins you might ask?
Well, don’t forget those walking wilds and the free re-spins. Which on a good round can actually give you 15 – 20 free spins, rather than just the initial 10.
Let’s be honest. Usually you’ll get as far as the money bags, and probably, walk away with about 30 times your bet.
Every once in a while, if you play long enough, you’ll come across the wild hens and then things start to get interesting, with wins fluctuating between 50 to 80 times your bet.
And then, one day, you’ll get the expanded golden harp wild and get… nothing. Just nothing. And you’ll cry because it felt so close to a big win, you could practically taste the fried green beans.
But then it will happen again, and this time, you’ll walk away with anything from 100 to 1000 times your bet and it will be a moment you’ll never forget.
Home invasion has never looked so good.
And if you are a fan of playing NetEnt casino slots on your smartphone, tablet or iPad then the Jack and the Beanstalk mobile game is one to take a look at.
Not everyone will be lucky enough to get the big wins here. But it’s a very welcoming slot for all, from beginners to experienced players, giving equal amount thrills and the hope for big wins.
