Jack and the Beanstalk
Help Jack find a fortune in the clouds in Jack and the Beanstalk, a fairytale-themed slot from NetEnt that includes a free spins bonus that benefits from increasingly valuable wilds. Featuring state-of-the-art 3D graphics and immersive sound, players will have the chance to climb their way to a top base game award of 1,000x their stake – with all regular wilds tripling the value of any wins. What’s more, the free spins feature includes a collectable key symbol that will transform these wilds into more rewarding icons, with stacked symbols and unique “walking wilds” available.
As the name would suggest, Jack and the Beanstalk is based on the classic fairytale in which a young boy sells his family’s cow for a handful of magic beans. With these beans sprouting a giant beanstalk overnight, Jack climbs the towering plant to reach a castle in the sky where a giant and his treasures await. The slot faithfully recreates this story thanks to 3D graphics and suitable symbols, with Jack, the giant and various golden trinkets all featuring on the reels. The game starts off on the ground outside Jack’s house, but when the free spins are activated the backdrop changes to a setting high up in the clouds with the beanstalk growing further whenever three golden keys are collected.
First and foremost, Jack and the Beanstalk benefits from a unique wild feature known as “walking wilds”. Whenever a wild symbol appears anywhere on the gameboard, players will receive a free re-spin as the icon moves one reel to the left. This will continue at no extra cost until the wild leaves the reels, meaning any regular spin can potentially trigger five re-spins for additional rewards. This becomes increasingly important when players land three treasure chest symbols to trigger 10 free spins, because now these walking wilds can be increasingly valuable. By collecting the new key symbols found on reel five, wilds will increase in size from one to two to three spaces high until, at the final level, they will simply expand to fill the entire reel whenever they appear. Essentially, this gives players the chance to enjoy five free re-spins with a completely wild reel present each time.
Another exceptionally straightforward slot from NetEnt, Jack and the Beanstalk features just two adjustable buttons – bet level and coin value. With left and right arrows controlling both options, players can choose a bet level from 1-10 and a coin value from £0.01-£0.50, with these two settings being multiplied together and put through the slot’s 20 paylines to create a total cost per spin of £0.20-£100.00.
A wonderfully designed and hugely rewarding slot, Jack and the Beanstalk really is a NetEnt game that gives you extra on every spin. The presence of walking wilds in the base game can substantially boost players’ regular winnings, but it is during the free spins where they really come into their own; with increasingly valuable wild symbols resulting in some truly gigantic payouts.
