As with many of the Net Entertainments Platinum Slot range, Jack and the Beanstalk opens with a lovely animated film that shows you the story behind the action. You’re given a look at the fairy tale castle, with our hero trying to steal the Golden Goose away from the evil giant. It’s just the right length to get you into the spirit of the game, and once you’ve seen it you’ve got the option to turn it off, so you get straight onto the reels in subsequent sessions.
The Jack and the Beanstalk features some very good looking graphics. There’s a lot of animation going on in the background, with little blue butterflies fluttering around the reels, and a Jack sprite who pokes his head out of a door when you win big. There’s loads to see in this great slot machine, which is backed up by a first class audio soundtrack – when it comes to top class productions, Net Entertainments really know what they’re doing.
Jack and the Beanstalk’s reel game features 20 pay-lines across a standard casino five reel set up. This is backed up with two special features. The first special feature that we’re going to talk about in Jack and the Beanstalk is the wandering wild. This ingenious mechanism allows you to get multiple spins off a single spin, which is a good thing in anyone’s book. Simply stop in a wild symbol anywhere in view on the grid to start the process. Once all symbols are locked in place and any wins on the grid are paid out, the wild slides one reel horizontally to the left and the reels automatically respin with the wild in place. This can lead to some pretty hefty pay-outs from the reel game and is a lovely little feature.
The wild feature gets absolutely crazy in the Jack and the Beanstalk bonus feature. You’ll get into the bonus round when you stop in the three special purple glowing treasure chest symbols anywhere on the reels. A short cut-scene that sees you transported up to the gigantic beanstalk later and you’re at the game’s fabled second set of reels. Not only do these include more wilds and scatters than you’ll find in the regular game, but there’s also a special key symbol that gives you access to the feature’s special wild symbols.
Stop in three keys to activate the money bag wild – this acts just like a normal wandering wild but it can cover two reels at once. Another three keys sees you activating the Golden Goose wild with the power to cover three reels, again this will wander the reels just like the standard wild. The final level of the bonus game is the special golden harp wild, which will expand to fill the entire reel no matter where you stop it on the reel – and yes, you’ve guessed it, this has the power to wander too.
Slot Professor Says
Although Gonzo's Quest gets a lot of the attention when people talk about the quality of the Net Entertainments Platinum Slots, I'm actually head over heels with the beauty of Jack and the Beanstalk. This game is just so much more creative that Gonzo's, giving players loads of chances to get a unique kind of reel action with the wandering wild.
Jack and the Beanstalk likes to pay-out too. You can grab a lot of gold from the reels before you've even made your way into the free spin section, but when you get onto the free spin round, then you'll really be taking home a lot of cash, although it can be a little bit hard to hit. Most sessions where you hit the free spin round will see you getting at least two of the special wilds, which can greatly increase your winnings, but if you do manage to get that all important third golden harp wild, then you can often be looking at making 10 – 20 times your entire starting balance. This is a machine that can really make your dreams come true.
It's rare that I sit in front of a slot machine that I can't fault in any way, shape or form, but Jack and the Beanstalk is a game that I can play, play and play again, without every tiring of the action. There's so much on offer here in terms of wins in the base game, coupled with a bonus feature that can pay more than most on the block, which isn't just limited to a few spins. A truly great game that deserves your attention right now. This, in my opinion is the very best slot machine on our site.
