It’s not every day that we get to see an adaptation of a popular fairy tale in the world of online slots. Well, this time we’re in for a real treat: the latest NetEnt slot that has once again justified its reputation as having some of the best graphic solutions in the industry. “Jack and the Beanstalk” is the name of this brand new 20-payline release that will keep you glued to your computer chair indefinitely, at the same time earning you some great prizes!
If you’re into a good old fairy tale, you should really give this slot a try. It’ll take you to another world, where you’ll meet Jack and his chicken chased by a two-headed giant whom they’ve robbed. The graphics are so colorful and realistic with all the treasure chests, silly goats, bean tree-shaped poker symbols, axes, etc, that you won’t find it difficult to immerse into this new world and keep spinning and winning on some of this slot’s exquisite special features. Those include an innovative walking wild and a scatter that brings generous free spins, as well as an interesting twist to the story in which you collect treasures that turn into new winning opportunities.
In terms of the affordability of “Jack and the Beanstalk”, there’s no need to worry, as this great slot can be played by virtually any type of player. Its coin denominations comprise amounts from $0.01to $0.50, and in addition to this, players can place up to 10 coins per payline and thus increase the range of bets if they prefer playing on higher stakes.
When it comes to winning odds in this slot, they are significantly increased by its special features, which are adorable, generous and innovative. The first one to draw our attention is the Walking Wild – a feature which combines a wild symbol function with re-spins. Namely, whenever a wild symbol occurs, you will be awarded a re-spin, during which the wild will move one reel to the left, awarding another re-spin. Hence, you will get as many re-spins as the wild remains on the reels. And to make things even better, all the winnings hit with the help of the walking wild will be tripled, so this is a feature worth hoping for.
Then, there are the scattered treasure chests, three or more of which will start a round of 10 free spins. In addition, if you hit another 3+ scattered chests during the free spins round, you’ll get five additional spins. Finally, we have the key symbols that appear only on reel 5. They are collectible, which means that certain number of collected keys unlocks certain wild features – three of them will turn any new walking wild into a stacked wild of two money bags; six of the keys will activate three stacked golden hen symbols to replace any appearing walking wild; and nine keys will make any new walking wild become an expanding golden harp symbol – all of these wild variants promise excellent additional prizes, so golden keys are wanted goods in the Beanstalk land!
Now, having in mind all of the above mentioned features, its affordability, the adorable graphics and winning potential, there’s no doubt this winter’s about to become much, much warmer with NetEnt’s “Jack and the Beanstalk!”
How to play Jack and the Beanstalk
This video slot from Net Entertainment is a truly remarkable game, and is one of the latest in a series of 3D video slots for both online, and land casino distribution. There is a good range of websites where the game can be found, but this software developer does keep things a little exclusive, so, you will only find it at the best of the best. Jack and the Beanstalk™ relates the classic childhood tale of a poor boy in his pursuit for wealth. It is innovation personified, brought to the reels once again in a five-reel, twenty pay-line, non-progressive game, with a coin bet range of 0.01 up to 0.50; maximum coins per line of 10, and a top bet of 100.00. Guaranteed to keep players of all bankroll sizes, quite literally glued to their seats!
Theme and Design of the Game
As we said, this is a classic tale that everyone can relate to. It opens up with an introduction that is worthy of Pixar, or any of the other large animation film-makers. Don’t skip the introduction to get down to brass tacks. It contains a large part of the entertainment value of the game, which is absolutely brilliantly illustrated and features all the right sounds (exactly how a movie would sound). Jack’s search for treasure in the land of the giants takes us to heights unheard of in online video slot games even today, wrapped up in exquisite artwork – castles in the clouds, and all the fabulous frippery of fairy-tale-esque in 3D.
Symbols obviously feature Jack, his beanstalk, and a chicken (why did I think it was a golden goose? Must be another story), a preposterous purple, two-headed giant, a treasure chest filled with gold, keys, bean-stalk rendered playing card icons, axes, watering cans, and a goat. The “Jack and the Beanstalk” icon is the walking wild, and the game is packed to the brim with wilds, free spins and scatters. Walking Wilds are brilliant as they progressively move to the left, and at no extra cost to the player, can generate even more wins.
Jackpots and Bonus Games
While there is no progressive jackpot prize in Jack and the Beanstalk, there is still a very generous prize of 30 000 coins. At the highest bet ratio, this amounts to $15 000! Virtually every moment in this game is a bonus, with free spins which can be unlocked by collecting keys, and unlocking different types of wilds. Wilds turn into Stacked Wilds, and as if this wasn’t enough, Treasure Collection Free Spins takes players on to win even more.
We have very few words to say about this game – we love it…you have got to try it. You would be mad not to!
