About Jack and the Beanstalk
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 re-spin 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.
