Jack and the Beanstalk Slots

Themed on the well known English fairy tale of the same name, Jack and the Beanstalk video slot was released by NetEnt in December 2011 and it has been earning rave reviews. The software developers did well to bring the fairy tale back to life at online casinos everywhere, introducing some very interesting features such as Walking Wilds and Treasure Collection that can seriously increase players' line wins.

How to play Jack and the Beanstalk

The game comes with five reel, twenty paylines and there rows of game symbols, where players need to match at least three icons on an active line starting from the leftmost reel. Press the paytable button located in the bottom left corner to familiarize yourself with game payouts, special features and payline scheme. Jack and the Beanstalk logo is Wild and it is used to substitute for all non-feature icons, where all prizes involving the symbol are tripled. Each time Wild appears on the reels, it moves one reel to the left and a re-spin is awarded. This continues until the symbol disappears from the game screen. Treasure Chest is Scatter and it is used to unlock the Free Spins round.

Betting Options and Payout

The game is played at fixed 20 paylines, but players can increase/decrease their total bet using coin value and bet level buttons. Choose from six different coin denominations, ranging from $0.01 to$0.50 and select bet level between 1 and 10 to wager said amount of coins per line or between 20 and 200 credits in total. Since Wild and Scatter do not offer payout on their own, the little boy called Jack is not only the main character, but it also acts as the highest paying symbol. Get five of these to appear on an active payline and you will be awarded between 1,000 and 10,000 credits depending on your bet level at the time.

Symbols an Extra Features

Jack, giant and his wife, goat, axe and beat-up watering can appear as regular game icons in addition to playing cards Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace which are made of beanstalk. Game logo, treasure chest and key are the so called special icons, whilst money bags, golden hens and golden harps only occur during the Free Spins round. Receive three or more Treasure Chest Scatters in any positions and you will be awarded 10 free games. A number of additional features can be unlocked by the key symbol appearing on reel 5. Collect three keys and the next Wild appearing on the game screen will become a Stacked Wild of two money bag icons. Collect six keys and next Wild appearing will be Stacked Wild of three golden hen icons. Collect nine keys and next Wild appearing will be Expanding Wild with a golden harp icon.
