You’ve read the classic fairytale and you've probably played the Netent slot, now is the time to play the game. Jack’s Beanstalk, from Nextgen Gaming, is a fantastic slot game that offers two hugely enjoyable bonus rounds and a wealth of ways in which to win some decent payouts.
Join Jack on his magical adventure in the pursuit of the 600,000 coin jackpot, and defeat that nasty giant and knock him down off his perch. You will have plenty of support along the way: the Magic Beans and the goose’s Golden Egg symbols will help you to make your money stretch further, and if things go to plan then you will be able to enjoy your own fairytale ending.
There are five reels to work with along with three rows, and so offers 15 positions on which to spin those winning symbols. There are 25 paylines to enjoy too, so each and every spin offers great potential.
Players are able to select how many coins they want to bet on each payline per spin; just use those blue and red ‘Bet Up’ and ‘Bet Down’ arrows to select your Total Bet figure. Players can get from 1p to £40 per spin, so there is something to put a smile on the faces of smaller budget players and high rollers alike. When you’re happy, hit that green Spin button to set those reels in motion.
The symbols are all items that are linked to the classic Jack and the Beanstalk fairytale; and you are looking to match three or more of these on an active payline to pick up a prize. The wins are:
Then there are the playing card symbols, which each pay five coins for matching three, four pays 20 and five rewards players with a handy 100 coins.
The Magic Beans symbol will land on reels 2, 3 and 4, and it only takes one to trigger the Upwild Feature, where a mighty beanstalk will grow and fill the reel. The wild beanstalk will grow one further position for each free spin, of which players will be awarded three for spinning those Magic Beans.
Land any additional Magic Bean symbols on your reels during a free spin and you will re-trigger the feature, with three more spins and a new beanstalk growing on that particular reel as well.
Upwild Feature wins are added to payline wins, and will be played under the conditions of the original triggering spin.
The Golden Egg symbol, laid by that chirpy-looking goose, will trigger the Pick Me feature when three of them appear on your reels.
Your job will then be to select three geese to reveal your prizes, and if you pick up a Golden Egg you will be paid out at 2500x your original bet. Otherwise, prizes range from 25 to 500 coins – not too shabby at all!
And remember, each and every win in Jack’s Beanstalk can be gambled. You will need to correctly guess the colour of a playing card to double your winnings, or if you are feeling particularly lucky you could try and guess the suit to quadruple your win. This gamble feature can be replayed a maximum of five times.
Nextgen Gaming slots are well renowned fas they look sublime and play like a dream; and Jack’s Beanstalk is no exception. The symbols are vibrant and full of detail, and the gameboard is presented in fantastic fashion. Even the background, the lush green landscape, is a joy to behold. Innovative animation can really enhance a player’s enjoyment, and this is clearly something that Nextgen have recognised.
But there is plenty of substance to back up the style. With a top prize of 600,000 coins, and stakes ranging from 1p up to £40, there is plenty of versatility for players of all preferences. With two unique bonuses that offer money-making potential, and free spins up for grabs as well, Jack’s Beanstalk is a rewarding game to play visually and financially.
