Every man can relate to this in the dog eat dog world of today’s finance. This touching slot offers plenty of thrilling ways to win. Make sure you check out those Walking Wilds in both Free Spins mode and during the main game (those mean a 3X multiplier). This quality NetEnt slot, which was implemented in 2011 and is very popular to this day with gamblers of all walks of life, is a good choice for hearty entertainment across the board. In case you haven’t heard the story, check out the background here. Also a very popular story on stage, plus an interesting topic for the papers.
Make your way all the way up the career ladder (remember our other famous fan of climbing) as Jack progresses along the bean stalk, rising higher and higher both in terms of Free Spins and in terms of seeing the bigger picture. We loved the graphics and sound in this game, which are indeed very impressive, and the amounts of bonuses in this game are also terrific, with plenty of opportunities to win (as well as increasing your ability to generate income the more keys you pick up). What we also found nice was that, compared to older versions, this one has been through quite a few updates, and a few bugs have been fixed, which means that the designers are keeping an eye on the quality of the game and are keeping up with players’ feedback.
How does it work?
Collecting all kinds of nifty bonuses sees you to the end of this exciting adventure. Those include key that you pick up which allow you to generate Stacked Wilds x2, and with more keys, Stacked Wildsx3. With more keys you get introduced to Expanding Wilds. The amounts of bonuses, re-spins, Free Spins, and additional opportunities to win this game takes you to greatest highs anyone has ever seen in the gambling world. This delightful, nifty video slot is full of all kinds of pleasant surprises for you to discover. Just like with Battlestar Galactica slot, the graphics are very well designed.
Up there at the top of the charts with the greatest of them all, this game will see your balance going down faster than a French hooker, but, given that you play your cards right, you can win plenty. We have to warn you in advance that this is not the game that players should take lightly, because there is a potential to quickly pour all your bankroll down the drain. However, in skilled hands it can really work. The way spins turn out, everything is completely unpredictable here in terms of large wins, which, we guess, is good for a casino games. In other words, if you’re trying to see predictable patterns here, highly likely you will be wasting your time. This game is kind of a risky bet (don’t come here if you need to make money), but it’s abundant fun provided a substantial budget.
The bonus feature we liked most of all of everything in the game, although the graphics and the sound was terrific. A high-variance slot, it can really deliver in terms of big wins, but it is quite temperamental. The biggest possible wins are 3000 times the original bet, which is okay (we’ve seen bigger wins, for example, in Cashapillar slot), but, in truth, the base game wins could be bigger, which is one of our few negative comments (or desires for improvement, as we gallantly put it) about this cool little game of chance.
We like getting Free Spins completely randomly though (nice touch), but scatters seemed a little vague in this one (no reward for them), and the expanding wilds are pretty hard to get, although they offer decent rewards when you do.
Features, Symbols And Special Features
The symbols are Treasure Chest, Jack and the Beanstalk, Key, Jack, Two-headed Giant, Goat, Axe, Watering Can and cards from Ace to 10. The symbols form 30 winning combinations.
Jack and the Beanstalk is the wild that helps to complete winning combinations by substituting for other symbols. The wild can’t substitute for the scatter and Key symbols. Jack and the Beanstalk slot offers a walking wild. Every time it appears on the reels a re-spin feature becomes active. During the re-spin the wild moves to the left and another re-spin starts. The feature stops when the wild leaves the reels. The wild triples all the wins.
Treasure Chest is the scatter. The scatter can appear anywhere on the reels to win. Three or more scatters win 10 free spins. During free spins you can win 5 additional free spins.
Key can appear on reel 5 and start wild collections. When you collect 3 Keys any walking wild turns into a Stacked Wild of two Money Bags. Six Keys turn a walking wild into a Stacked Wild of three Golden Hens. Nine Keys turn a walking wild into an Expanding Wild with a Golden Harp.
The coin value is from $0.01 to $0.50. The game has 10 bet levels, so you can bet up to 200 coins per spin, so the maximum wager is $100.
There are different slots based around the same story all by different companies. This version by NetEnt is by far more accessible, with lower bet limits (but bear in mind it’ll take more time for you to reach bigger wins because winnings are directly proportional to bet size, as always). This game has a big potential, we feel, and, according to the rumours, some players had thousands of Free Spins on this one (although we only have players’ words for it and, you have to admit, they are kind of biased). This game needs a strong hand and a substantial budget (although this is not Mega Moolah, you will not get much out of this one with a small bank roll).
The theoretic payout for this slot is 96.3%.
This slot features 5 reels and 20 paylines.
