How to Play

To begin playing, players must select the amount they wish to bet. You can play the game from as little as 20p a spin to as much as £100 a spin. There is both a manual spin option, for cautious players, and an autoplay option, for those who like to sit back and watch the reels spinning.

The regular gameplay is very straightforward, simply match the symbols in a winning combination across a single payline, and the game will award you your winnings. The lower value symbols are the playing cards, from 10 through Ace, the higher paying symbols include, a two headed purple giant, a skinny goat, an axe, and a tattered watering can. The very highest paying symbol naturally features the fairy tale’s hero, Jack.  The game also has a scatter symbol, a treasure chest, and a “walking wild” symbol, which is the game’s logo.

Furthermore, the game has many bonus features and free spins which could potentially result in some impressive payouts over time. Despite the lack of a giant progressive jackpot, this game is of medium volatility and currently has a very generous 96.3% RTP. If you’re looking for a game which offers the thrill of winning a life changing sum, with high stakes and big deposits, then this isn’t the game for you. That being said, this game could certainly earn you a tidy sum if you’re lucky enough.

Special Features and Bonuses:

  • Walking Wild feature: this feature is a minor bonus, but still very good to win. If a wild symbol land anywhere on the reels, you will earn a single free spin. The wild symbol will then move one place to the left, and if a second winning combination is created, you’ll be granted another free spin. This feature continues until the wild symbol exists the reels on the left. Also, the wild symbols come with a 3 x multiplier attached.
  • Free Spins feature: This feature is activated by landing 3 or more treasure chest symbols anywhere on the reels. When this happens, the game will reward you with 10 free spins. If you land a further 3 chests, while this feature is in motion, you will be granted an additional 5 free spins.
  • Treasure Chest feature: Finally you have the Treasure Collection – during the free spins feature, you will notice several “key” symbols appear on the 5th reel. If you collect 3 keys, the next wild appearing on the reels will become a “stacked” wild which displays 2 money bags. If you collect a further 3 keys, then new wilds will change into stacked wilds of 3 golden hens. Finally, if you collect a final extra 3 keys, then all wilds become expanding golden harps. When a stacked or expanding wild appears, it will move 1 reel to the left until it reaches the first reel. These symbols are extremely high paying, and you could potentially reach wins of up to 500 times your initial stake!

Graphics and Sounds:

NetEnt clearly invested heavily in making Jack and the Beanstalk into a truly beautiful game. The game’s charmingly drawn characters and the 3D graphics help to draw the player into the story. The symbols are magnificently styled, even the numbers have a curved leaf-like appearance.

Adventurous, fairy-tale type tunes accompany the Walking Wild when it’s activated, and the background music is symphonic and pleasant.
