Once upon a time… I’ve seen the future and it’s an old fairytale. Jack and the Beanstalk online slot is another groundbreaking game from fledgling online gaming software developers Net Ent and – like every good Thai masseur – it comes with a happy ending.
Based on ye olde fairy tale of a dim-witted twat who trades his heifer in for a handful of beans… which end up sprouting a massive beanstalk in his garden… which leads to a castle in the sky… which is owned by a nasty old giant (two headed in this game for some reason)… who owns a golden egg laying chicken… which the dim-witted twat steals- finally redeeming himself by cooking gold omelettes and living happily ever after in solid gold egg-bound bliss.
Anyway… Everyone knows the story. Apparently, stealing from giants is OK. Although, I think it’s a bit off to be honest. He didn’t ask for trouble did he…
Whatever. What we have here is a five reel, 20 payline online slot, based on Jack and the Beanstalk and it’s good.
Jack Your Body
The game opens up with a Disney quality animation of our young thief escaping the giant’s castle with his fortune laying foul. The high end graphics continue into the gameplay alongside sprightly fairytale music.
Game symbols include a chopper, the two headed giant, young Jarvis Cocker lookey likey Jack, and a mangled watering can. Also in play is a treasure chest scatter symbol and a Jack and the Beanstalk Wild symbol.
Line up three treasure chest scatter symbols and you get 10 free spins. Hit more scatter symbols during your free spins and – like the aggrieved giant – the spins keep on coming. The Walking Wild symbol is a little more complicated: when this hits you get a free re-spin. The symbol moves to the left. As long as it is on screen, the free spins keep on coming. Hit a winning line with a wild symbol and you get three times the regular payline. Good beans!
There’s more. When you are in the wonderful world of free spins, not only are your wins multiplier but there is also the chance to unlock the Treasure Collection Feature. Should a golden key appear, you will start to unlock a variety of enhanced bonus features.
What’s not to like. Innovative, fun, engaging. Online gaming software developers Net Ent are truly the golden goose in this competitive market at the moment. Their games are fun to play and deliver on their promise. Ironically, the Jack and the Beanstalk Slot machine is a giant.
“Man, I grew a little stalk of my own when I played this game. Yeah… it’s a whole bag o’ fun but I wish we could have had more golden chicken and a little less goat. The feature round was fun and heralded another pretty cool animated sequence.
It’s a great game for the young at heart and you could live happily ever after if you catch a big one on this game!”
