jack-beanstalk-slotThe classic tale of a boy and his beans comes to life in this enchanting 3D version of Jack and the Beanstalk video slot from Net Entertainment. With so much more to offer than just a fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk brings action, fun and value to the table.

Overview

The Jack and Beanstalk slot features 5 reels and 20 pay lines. You can play this game for as little as $.01, a spin or as much as $100 for maximum winning potential. You can win up to 600,000 coins if your luck is just right. There are 10 levels of coins that you play per pay line. This means you can play up to 10 coins on just one pay line and 200 on all 20.

Jack and the Beanstalk features some impressive bonuses as well. The most unique are the Walking Wild symbols that can move across the reels to create multiple wins during a spin. You also get to win free spins, bonus multipliers and collect precious keys during the bonus rounds to create a row full of wild symbols that can produce massive payouts.

Symbols

The common and lower paying symbols are the typical Ten through Ace symbols. You must get 3 in a row from left to right to activate a winning spin.

The higher paying symbols feature famous symbols of the fairy tale itself. A watering can, an axe, a goat, the giants and Jack himself are all found on the reels with high paying rewards. Again, 3 or more matching symbols in succession from left to right will trigger a win.

Wild Symbols

The wild symbol is the Jack and the Beanstalk icon. When it appears on any reel it triggers a re-spin of all reels. The wild symbol will then move across the reels with each spin creating more possible wins. As long as there is a wild symbol on any of the reels, the re-spin keeps re-activating. All wins with the wild symbol are also multiplied by 3.

Scatter Symbol

The wild symbol is a treasure chest that will also trigger the free spin bonus round. Three or more of these on the reels will activate a free spin round with 10 free spins being awarded. During the bonus, more free spins can be won as well. Each time you get 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels during a bonus round, 5 extra free spins are added to your count.

During the free spin round you can collect keys on the 5th reel. Once you collect 2 keys, 2 stacked, wild money bag symbols will appear on this reel. Collect 6 and all of reel 5 will feature 3, stacked golden hen wild symbols. If you get 9 keys during the bonus round, the 5th reel will turn into a walking wild that will move across the reels, creating wins of epic proportions.

Each key that lands on reel 5 is added to your count. You do need to collect them all in one spin.

Graphics

The cut scene to open the game is memorable and entertaining. It will immediately show its true potential and make you want more. Once you begin playing, the ambient noise and the crisp graphics will be easy on your eyes to make playing a joy.
