Jack and the Beanstalk online slots is based on one of the most widely-known children’s stories. A young man, after climbing a magic beanstalk and finding a goose which lays golden eggs, manages to escape the clutches of a giant in the clouds.
Jack and the Beanstalk is a simple, straightforward online slots game. The bonus features allow for staggered wins and have the potential to sustain long periods of Free Spins that compliment other bonus features and special rounds such as the Walking Wild and the Treasure Hunt feature. Being able to compound these two bonus features at the same time offers the potential for large payouts in a short amount of time.
Playing the Game
Jack and the Beanstalk online slots has 20 paylines and 5 reels, offering a Walking Wilds Feature, free spins and a bonus round called Treasure Hunt. Landing three Scatter symbols, a treasure chest, in a row grants the player ten 10 Free Spins. While using these Free Spins, players have the opportunity to gain additional Free Spins.
Jack and the Beanstalk online slot has a payout percentage of 96.3% and 10 bet levels to choose from.
Reel Symbols and Look
The slot symbols draw on the narrative of Jack and the Beanstalk, beginning with an axe and followed by a goat, magic beans, a water can and a giant. The design is relatively simple and making it appealing to casual players or those who are just starting off.
Walking Wild Feature
Every time a Wild Symbol lands on the reels, the game grants an additional spin. The Wild symbol will shift to the reel on the right and additional spins will be granted until the Wild Symbol moves to the far right reel.
If a player activates the Walking Wild feature on a free spin, the Walking Wild Feature will take over until it finishes. Winnings from Wild symbols are multiplied by 3 and can replace other symbols.
If 3 keys land on the 5th reel at any time during free spins, Wild Cards will become stacked. Stacked Wild Cards take up 2 or 3 positions, have greater value and increase the chances of a large payout. With the first three keys, the Wild Card turns into a Stacked Wild Card next to two money bag symbols. With 6 keys, the Stacked Wild Card loses its money bags and 3 golden hen symbols will appear in their place. Finally, with 9 keys, the Stacked Wild Card becomes an Expanding Wild flanked by golden harps. This Expanding Wild covers the reel and shifts in the same way a Wild would.
A Trip Down Memory Lane
There seems to be a large emphasis on slots based on storybooks and children’s nursery rhymes, with Microgaming’s Rhyming Reels series also being very popular with players. Jack and the Beanstalk is another online slots game that inspires nostalgia and takes players on a trip down memory lane, only this time there are plenty of opportunities to win big along the way.
