Jack And The Beanstalk Slots
Jack and the Beanstalk may have been released a few years back, but even then it was ahead of its time. A 3D slot with exceptional graphics and illustrations, the NetEnt game is one of the many in the developer’s collection that offers excitement coupled with multiple opportunities to win. With a 200-coin maximum bet available for every spin, players can choose to bet big or keep the wagers small, both of which come with their own rewards. The fairy tale themed game based on the stories of Jack and the giant he slayed is one that is standard as far as functionality goes but with a special wild symbol, substitutes, free spins and a bonus game, this game is worth your time.
This online video slot from Net Entertainment makes use of the same great graphics and functionality you would expect from the developer, but there are enough bonus features in it to keep things interesting. One of these is the special wild which is represented in the game’s logo and acts as a substitute for any other symbols out there with the end goal being to make winning combinations. Additionally, when this symbol is in play, any winning combinations have a three times payout.
Here’s where it starts getting interesting: the wild is also known as a walking wild and this describes its behaviour on the reels. Once a spin has been completed and there is a wild symbol somewhere on the reels, this symbol will pick itself up and move over to the reel on its left, after which the reels will spin again. But that’s not all. Two additional symbols, the key and the treasure chest, are also very rewarding. The symbols are the ‘key’ to unlocking the bonus rounds, of which the first is all about free spins.
The free spins bonus round unlocks once three of the treasure chest symbols have appeared on the reels and though it’s a pretty straightforward round, it could yield impressive rewards. The other bonus feature is the mini-game that can be unlocked at any time. This occurs when a key symbol shows up on reel 5 and every key that appears is tallied up by the game’s counter. The more keys you collect, the more special features you get and these include stacked symbols, a ‘golden goose’ and an expanding harp symbol, which also acts as a wild.
While the game’s fixed jackpot amount is relatively low, the wilds help push that amount up so if you happen to get the wilds on a top winning combo, you could take home 3 000 coins rather than just 1 000. There’s no progressive in this game though, which is hardly surprising given that very few of NetEnt’s online video slots make use of progressives, and though you would think this would put a damper on an otherwise great game, it really doesn’t. The game is very well-made, interesting and exciting and though it may not make you an instant millionaire, it will provide hours of online gaming fun. Our rating: 90/100
