Slot games really would be short of material if it wasn’t for children’s stories. This time around it’s the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Who would ever have imagined that at the top of a giant beanstalk would live a giant who in this game has two heads. Then again, who’d have ever imagined such a thing as a giant beanstalk existed in the first place?
This is another great game from NetEnt who keep on coming up with the goods time after time. The introduction to the game sees Jack and his chicken encounter the giant and do a runner.
The game itself keeps up the theme well. In the background we have Jack’s farm which doesn’t look to be in the best of condition. ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ has five reels, three rows of columns and twenty paylines. Playing the game costs between £0.20 and £200, that’s a wide range so there shouldn’t be a problem finding a level you can comfortably play at.
Symbols in the game include Jack, a watering can, the two-headed giant, his wife, an axe and a cow that’s seen better days. There’s also the ten to Ace playing card symbols. The wild symbol in this game is the game’s logo and this can substitute for other symbols in the game to get you some winning combinations. It doesn’t substitute for the scatter which is the treasure chest. As you’ll read, this plays an important part in triggering the bonus game.
When the wild symbol appears on the reels that gets you a free spin. The wild then moves one place to the left and if you’re lucky gives you another free spin. It’ll keep edging to the left of the reels until it doesn’t get a win or doesn’t have anywhere else to go.
This isn’t the most complicated of games but a good look through the paytable and rules and having some free games will really help you. It’s also possible to take some time away from the screen if you want by activating the autoplay feature. You can get between ten and 1000 if you so wish.
To get some free spins you need to get three of more of the treasure chest scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. This gets you ten free spins and if you can land another three scatters then you’ll get another five for doing so. During the bonus game you have the task of trying to get keys on the fifth reel. Three will turn the next wild into a stack of two money bags, six mean the next wild symbols become a full stack of three golden hens. Nine is really handy because the next wild turns into an expanding one with a golden harp and some big wins are heading your way.
Another great game from NetEnt. The theme is an enjoyable one and the bonus games give players a good chance of getting some excellent wins. The wilds really help you in this game so keep an eye out for them.
