The first Jack Hammer slot from NetEnt was a deservedly massive success. It had brilliant graphics that looked just like a comic book and some excellent features that helped get some great wins. Well something that good really deserves a sequel and that’s just what we have with Jack Hammer 2.
After saving Grand City the mayor has decided to honour our hero detective. As the great introduction to the game shows he has more problems on the horizon though. At the event in his honour is a pretty female singer called Pearl but she has an unwanted admirer. The new villain in town is Don Crabby, a gangster who just happens to be part crab. With his huge henchmen it appears both Jack and Pearl are in real trouble.
This is a five-reel game that has three rows of symbols and a sensational 99 paylines. Playing the game costs between £0.50 and £100, that means there shouldn’t be a problem in finding a stake level to play at which you’ll be totally comfortable with.
Again the game has fantastic graphics and the reels are full of symbols that are just like a comic book. There’s a crab that has one of those guitar cases that you can keep your gun in, Pearl’s microphone, Pearl singing, a moonlit dockside view with an empty boat, Don Crabby’s henchmen, a kidnapped Pearl in the back of a boat, some turned over barrels with fish on the floor, Don Crabby and Jack Hammer. It’s the four main characters – Jack, Don, Pearl and the henchmen – that are the highest paying symbols.
The wild symbol in this game is a bit like the signs that used to come up in the Batman TV series, when he was fun before becoming incredibly moody. It can substitute for other symbols in the game apart from the free spins symbol.
The sticky wins that were in the first game are back again. That means if you get a winning combination then the symbols that got you the win will stay exactly where they are. There’s a re-spin of the reels and if you’re lucky you’ll get another win. This can really get you some good wins as this will keep spinning until the wins come to an end.
If you want some time away from the screen then you can use the autoplay button. This can give you between ten and a thousand automated spins. Alternatively you can create a more advanced setting allowing you to keep the automated spins going until a certain win is achieved or a balance reached (good or bad).
To get some free spins you need at least five of the free spins symbols to appear anywhere on the reels. Five get you ten free spins, six take that up to 13, seven increases it to 16 and eight or more will see you playing with 20 free spins. During the free spins round all of your wins are doubled and it’s possible to get some more free spins if you’re lucky.
Another great game from NetEnt and roll on Jack Hammer 3. The game looks fantastic, the bonus game can really give you some excellent wins and those sticky wins can do nothing but good for your account balance.
