Home » Jack and the Beanstalk: Slot review

Fee-fi-fo-fum! Relive the classic fairy tale in this popular online pokie. Jack and the Beanstalk is one of the most beloved children’s fairy tales of all time. Jack trades the family cow for a handful of magic beans, which grow into a beanstalk reaching up into the clouds. In the casino version, you can use some of the game’s magic features to send your winnings sky-high.

Walking Wilds

One of the highlights of this casino game is the Walking Wilds feature. Every time a Wild symbol lands on the reels, it will remain in play and move/walk one position to the left on each spin. You will then receive free respins until the Wild has fully “walked” off the screen. These respins continue as long as the Wild is visible, even if they don’t contribute to winning combinations. 

Jack and the Beanstalk Free Spins

If you land a minimum of three Scatter symbols on the same spin, 10 Free Spins are awarded. Similar to the base game, Wild symbols once again “walk” across the reels, while triggering respins. What’s more, all winning bet lines containing a Wild symbol will receive a 3x multiplier boost.

In a Free Spins game round, landing 3 or more Scatter symbols will result in 5 extra Free Spins.

Win extra big by collecting key symbols, which will appear only on reel #5 in the bonus round. If you collect three key symbols, the next Wild symbol will become a stacked symbol of two money bags. If you collect six symbols, the next Wild will be stacked and consist of three golden hens, while a golden harp will represent the expanding Wild if nine symbols are collected. This symbol will occupy the entire reel, which significantly increases your chances of a big win.

Since Wild symbols dish out free respins until they disappear off the reels, an opening haul of 10 Free Spins can easily climb to 20 with a little luck.

A Colourful NetEnt Game

While Jack and the Beanstalk might not be among the most famous in the NetEnt catalogue, it remains a highly entertaining online pokie. As we’ve come to expect from NetEnt, the production quality is characteristically superb, complemented by Walking Wilds – a smart addition to this bright and colourful game.
