Jack and the Beanstalk is a 5 reel 20 pay line pokie from Net Entertainment (or NetEnt). This slot is based on the classic tale of a small boy named Jack and his search for riches in the land of giants.
Jack and the Beanstalk boasts some truly gorgeous graphics and sounds. That is not all, though: this hugely popular pokie also has some very nice innovative bonus features including the Walking Wild feature and the Free Spins Feature.
Pokie players looking for big wins will be pleased to hear that these will frequently happen on both bonus rounds.
You can play the game from as little as $0.20 per spin up to as much as $100 a spin.
Jack and the Beanstalk Bonuses
During the base game, whenever a Walking Wild appears on any reel, you will get a free re-spin. After the winning combinations have been added to your winnings, the Walking Wild symbol moves 1 reel to the left which gives you, even more, chances of winning. As long as there is at least one Walking Wilds symbol on the screen, you get extra free re-spins. You can also get extra Walking Wilds during the during the re-spins, and each Walking Wilds comes with a 3x multiplier attached to it. Big wins galore!
The main bonus feature is the Free Spins feature – land 3 or more scattered Treasure Chest symbols, and you will be rewarded with 10 free spins. During the Free Spins Feature, it is possible to retrigger for 5 additional free spins.
The Walking Wild feature is also present during the Free Spins Bonus, but the real aim of the bonus is to unlock extra treasures.
By collecting key symbols on the 5th reel, extra Stacked Walking Wilds are released, which can lead to huge wins. The more keys you collect, the bigger the winning potential. Every three keys collected unlock extra Walking Wilds, which also come with a 3x multiplier.
With a decent amount of luck (and enough keys), wins of 500x – 2,000 x bet are quite common in the Free Spins Feature.
Jack and the Beanstalk: our verdict
Jack and the Beanstalk is one of my favourite pokies. The main bonus game does disappoint sometimes but can also award you with huge session-saving wins. It’s one of NetEnt’s most popular pokies and for a good reason.
