Jack and the Beanstalk is a very creatively done video slot from Net Entertainment, telling the familiar tale of a young boy and of course the beanstalk. This is an enchanting version of the story done in 3D, which offers a lot more than you would ever expect with tonnes of action and loads of fun.
The Jack and the Beanstalk video slot game has 5 reels and 20 pay lines. You can start this game with as little as £0.01 per spin or spend the maximum of $100 for top winning potential. If you’re lucky, you can win as much as 600,000 coins. You can play with 10 levels of coins per pay line, which is to say you can go up to 10 coins on only one pay line and 200 coins on all 20.
Jack and the Beanstalk also offers some original and innovative bonus features. The most interesting ones are the Walking Wild symbols, which wander across the reels creating multiple wins while they’re spinning. You can also win free spins and bonus multipliers plus collect valuable keys while in the bonus rounds, which create a row packed with wild symbols for huge payouts.
The lower level symbols are the playing cards symbols of 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. To trigger a winning spin, you need to get three in a row going left to right.
The higher level symbols are items from the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, such as an axe, a watering can, Jack himself, and the Giants. These symbols are on the reels having the highest rewards. Again, you need three or more symbols that match from left to right in succession to win.
The icon for Jack and the Beanstalk is the wild symbol. When it pops up on any of the reels, it will activate a re-spin on all the reels. Then Jack will start moving across the reels on every spin to create more wins. As long as Jack is on any one of the reels, re-spins will continue to be re-activated. Any win you get with the wild symbol gets multiplied by 3.
The treasure chest acts as the scatter symbol, and it also activates free spins. If three or more pop up on the reels, you will win a round of 10 free spins. During the free spin bonus round, you can also win more free spins if 3 or more treasure chests pop up on the reels in a bonus round you will win 5 more free spins.
While in the free spin round you can gather keys on the 5th reel. If you can collect 2 keys, you will see 2 stacked symbols of wild moneybags popping up on this reel. If you can collect 6 keys, then all of the 5th reel will show 3 stacked wild symbols of golden hens. If you collect 9 keys while in the bonus round, then the 5th reel becomes a walking wild moving across the reels, which means huge wins.
