Jacks Beanstalk is a pretty recent release from NextGen Gaming. This online video slot features the standard five reels and twenty five paylines, but comes with a pretty decent set of extra features. Jacks Beanstalk offers a jackpot, as well as two bonus rounds and a number of other ways to win. The five reels offer fifteen positions on which to spin winning combinations, should you choose of course to play all the paylines.
As with most video slots, the more paylines you play, and the higher you wager on those paylines, the more your chances are of hitting the bonus rounds and the jackpot. Players are able to select how many coins they wish to bet on each payline per spin by using the red and blue Bet Up and Bet Down arrows to select your total bet figure. They game has a simple layout, which is easy to understand. This is a fun game for beginners, as it has good graphics and fun animations as well as a pretty low minimum wager.
Jacks Beanstalk Fairy Tale Theme
So we all know the story of Jack and his Beanstalk. Jack swopped the family cow for some magic beans, that grew into a magical beanstalk over night. The beanstalk led up into the sky and into the kingdom of a scary giant who owned a goose, which laid golden eggs.
Jack climbed the beanstalk and stole the goose, much to the giant’s dismay. In our slot, Jacks Beanstalk, we play the part of Jack and have to steal the Goose, which lays the golden eggs. And not get caught by the giant of course. The graphics are crisp and bright and all in 3D. Behind the reels is the giant’s kingdom that looks like a nice place to go. The reels themselves are gold with green beanstalks curling around them. All in all this is a good-looking modern slot with a fun pleasing theme.
Fairy Tale Symbols
The symbols in Jacks Beanstalk are of course all taken from the fairy tale. Matching three or more of these on an active payline will award you with not only a payout, but a fun animation too. On the reels you can find the giants Axe, his Harp, his Castle, the Giant himself and of course, Jack. At top 10 online casinos New Zealand, the symbols pay out from lowest to highest in that order, starting with the Axe. The rest of the symbols are the playing card basics.
Magic Beans Feature
The Magic Beans symbol will land on reels two, three and four, but it only takes one to launch the UpWild feature. In this feature the magic beanstalk will grow and fill an entire reel. Landing a magic bean will award you with three spins as well, and the beanstalk will grow one further position for each free spin. Finding any additional magic beans during this round will retrigger the feature, growing a new beanstalk and another three more free spins. Upwild feature wins are added to payline wins and will be played under the same conditions as the original triggering spin.
Golden Egg Feature
The other special feature in Jacks Beanstalk is the Golden Egg, which is laid by that desirable goose. Finding three eggs on your reels will trigger the Pick Me feature, where you will have to choose three geese to reveal your prize. Finding a Golden Egg during this will result in a 2500x multiplier to your original bet. The other prizes range from 25 to 500 coins, which is not to be sneezed at either.
