Jack & the Beanstalk
This slot probably needs no introduction, as we probably all know the fairy tale about Jack and the Bean Stalk involving golden goose eggs and giants. This story made a perfect inspiration for NetEnt game providers as they brought us an amazing slot game with great in-game features. This slot is all about fun and great winning potential that goes up to 300,000 coins. It comes with Walking Wilds, Free Spins Bonus with Stacked as well as Expanding Wilds. With all these wilds you know you can expect a great gaming experience. Visually, you’ll also have a great experience with sharp graphics, great design, and fun animations. The game starts off with an introductory video of Jack being chased by the two-headed giant and you can expect to have the exact same adrenaline rush as Jack in your own gameplay running after those wilds and big wins.
Jack and the Bean Stalk features 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 pay lines. The betting scale goes from a minimum of 20p per spin up to a maximum of £100 per spin for those filling brave enough for some risks. After setting your bet, you can proceed on spinning the reels and start aligning the symbols. There are 10 regular symbols in total, five of them including classic card icons which carry the lower payout values. The bigger wins occur with higher paying symbols represented by a watering can, an axe, a goat, the giant, and Jack himself who is the most lucrative symbol on the reels.
Jack and the Bean Stalk and The Walking Wild Feature
During the base game, as well as the Free Spins round, there is a mini bonus feature that includes Walking Wilds. Firstly, the walking wild is represented by the game logo, appears on all reels except the first one, and it substitutes for all symbols on the reel, except the scatter and Key symbols in the Bonus round. Now, whenever you land a wild on the screen you’ll get a free re-spin. The walking wild then moves one position on the left giving you another re-spin and more chances for wins. Re-spins continue as long as Wild is present on the reels, that is until it reaches the first reel. Furthermore, these walking wilds come with a 3x multiplier. This in-game feature is quite amazing as if you get a wild on the last reel you are in for a mini free spins round. This is why Jack and the Bean Stalk is a great game. But the greatness continues in the Free Spins round where you get even more wild features.
Free Spins Bonus with Three Types of Wilds
To activate the main feature of the game, you need 3 treasure chest scatters on the reels. This will award 10 free spins with some extra features. Upon activating the Bonus, the Bean Stalk will pull Jack up in the clouds where you get to play the bonus. First of all, walking wilds are also active during the bonus round with their 3x multiplier. Furthermore, the Bonus includes Treasure Collection feature which can activate stacked and expanding wilds on the reels. Mainly, the Key symbol appears on the fifth reel and depending on the number of these that you collect, you will get the following features:
1. With 3 collected keys, any wild that appears on the reels will become a stacked wild of 2 money bag symbols;
2. Collect 6 key symbols, and the next wild appearing on the reels will become a stacked wild of 3 Golden Hen symbols;
3. If you collect 9 keys in total, the next wild on the reels will become Golden Harp expanding wild.
All these wilds that appear on the reels, whatever the type, will act as Walking wilds giving you re-spins until they reach the first reel, just like in the base game with regular wilds. With all these wilds and re-spins, as well as the chance of re-triggering the bonus with 3 more scatters (5 extra free spins), you’ll definitely end up with more than the initial 10 free spins on your hands. All this makes this Bonus round quite exciting and loaded with great winning potential.
