Jack and the Beanstalk is one of the most popular fairy tales in the world. NetEnt decided to use the fairy tale and develop an online slot game with the same name that consists of 20 paylines. The online slot is based on the fairy tale so it is very easy to play and follow. The theme revolves around a poor boy named Jack, magical beans and a giant who lived up in the sky.
To start the game, you should choose your wager, which can be changed by pressing on the “Level” buttons. The coin value should be selected which range from 0.01 to 0.5; the coin size can be changed as well by pushing the “Coin Value” buttons. The bet level can also be changed from one to 10, which means the maximum overall total can be 100 for every spin. You should press the “Max Bet” button for this purpose.
You need to press the “Spin” button to initiate the game based on your chosen bet and wait for the results. You can also press the “Autoplay” button, which will automatically spin the reels for the pre-set number of times on a continuous basis. Keep in mind that there may be 20 paylines in the game but these cannot be customized due to their fixed design.
When the wild card, the game’s logo appears on the reels, a re-spin is activated. The wild card will then move a single reel to the left resulting in another re-spin. The re-spins will continue provided that the wild card still appears on the reels. All the winning combinations that include the wild card have the x3 multiplier.
The number of scatters also trigger and determine the number of free spins. For example, three scatters will trigger 10 free spins, and in case three or more scatters are shown during a free spin round, you will be awarded another five free spins. Both the base game and the free spin game have the Walking Wild feature, so your chances of winning may also increase.
If the Key symbol appears on the fifth reel during a free spin round, the Wild Feature will be activated and you will unlock either of these three: two Stacked Money Bags for three Key symbols; three Stacked Golden Hens for six Key icons; and Expanding Golden Harps for nine Key icons.
Best of all, if five symbols representing Jack, the hero of the game are shown on an active payline, you will win the 1000-coin jackpot!
Pros and Cons
The game itself has a few unique features that make it a delight to play for the first few spins. But the game play becomes repetitive after several games with many players complaining in frustration that all spins seem to have a similar outcome. The Walking Wilds feature disappears when the Beans and Chest icon appears on the reels so it’s nearly impossible to get it during free spins.
This isn’t one of the best high roller slots around but if you get lucky the bonuses can pay quite large amounts. It’s fun enough and entertaining enough to keep you engrossed with offer high bets and big jackpots, for that reason this is definitely one for the bingo players.
The Jack and the Beanstalk slot game is an enjoyable game, especially with its high-quality graphics but is by no means a thrilling and adventurous online slot game.
