This light-hearted 20 payline slot by NetEnt feels almost like playing a kid’s cartoon. Jack and the Beanstalk has very impressive 3D artwork and a madcap style that gives the game a feeling of energy. This five-reel slot livens up the action with some interesting features like the Walking Wilds.

Look and Feel

Jack and the Beanstalk begins with a brilliant 3D animated movie, showing Jack sneaking out of the giant’s castle with a chicken! The two-headed giant soon finds him and gives chase, setting the scene for a fun adventure. Yet again, NetEnt have produced a game with pleasingly high quality graphics, comparable to some movies.
This slot is set in Jack’s sleepy village, with some really nice details like an axe in a stump in the foreground. This slot has animated symbols which pair up with lively sound effects to create a fun, jaunty feel.

Gameplay

The base game is very simple on Jack and the Beanstalk. The characters of Jack, the giant and Jack’s goat represent the biggest base wins, respectively. It’s a very casual game where you don’t have to worry much about what you’re doing, just go along with the flow.

This game has an interesting Walking Wild feature which is unique and opens the way to bigger wins. It’s very simple – if you land a wild, which is a gold-framed symbol, then you get a free re-spin. On this re-spin the wild ‘walks’ to the next reel on the left, giving you another free spin. In other words, you get free spins until the wild reaches the leftmost reel. All wild wins pay x3, so this simple idea can be lucrative.

The minimum bet is 0.20 coins, with a maximum of $100, and a standard jackpot of $1,000.

Bonuses

This game also has a simple free spins feature, where landing three or more treasure chest scatters triggers ten free spins. You can retrigger this for five more spins. Most importantly, this is the gateway to the excellent Treasure Collection bonus. During free spins, keys will appear on reel five. If this happens three times, your next wild becomes two money bags – a stacked symbol.

Collect another three keys, your wilds become three golden hens, a taller stacked symbol. Best of all, get another three keys for a total of nine, to turn wilds into expanding golden harps. Just like the harp in the fairytale, this is very valuable! Remember, these are still walking wilds, giving you more free spins!
