Jack’s Beanstalk is a slot by NextGen Gaming, and while the slot closely resembles the title of a slot by a different developer, this slot is significantly more modern. Compared to other slots by the same developer, this slot certainly stands out. The usual frame at the bottom of the slot is missing, the animations are enjoyable though definitely not well-executed, and there are two different features to enhance gameplay. The slot also has a bonus game, and there is a possibility to win free spins, though these are indirectly linked to a feature you must unlock first. That is, there is no separate symbol for the free spins.
How to play Jack’s Beanstalk?
Normally, it’s possible to adjust the pay lines before you start playing the slot. Well, you can forget about that, since in this slot the number of pay lines has been fixed by the developer. If you look closely, you’ll find that you can change the wager at the bottom of the slot. Namely, at the tip of the carrot in the left lower corner of the slot, there’s a red and a blue arrow, which both allow you to set the wager. Jack’s Beanstalk also features an autospin function, which you can set to a certain number of spins. There’s also a wild symbol, which is the bean, and which contains a special feature.
The feature on Jack’s Beanstalk
If a handful of magic beans lands on the second, third or fourth reel, the feature gets triggered. The hand with the beans will become a wild symbol, and you will get a free re-spin. During the next re-spin, the wild will expand upwards, and, during the next respin, it will do so again. This means you can earn a maximum of three spins from a handful of magic beans, but this number can increase when more hands with magic beans land on the other reels. This way, you can continue playing with the free spins that are actually re-spins. What’s more, when you land two expanding wild symbols adjacently, your chances to win increase drastically. That is, you’ll only need one more symbol to reach the highest win!
The bonus game on Jack’s Beanstalk
If you land three gold eggs on your reels, you’ll climb the beanstalk a little, towards the clouds. In these clouds above the slot, there are swans breeding their eggs, out of which you can choose one. When you’ve chosen, this swan will take off from her nest, revealing the egg you’ve chosen along with the corresponding win. You will not be shown the winnings belonging to the other eggs, but you can certainly win big here! After your win has been calculated, you’ll automatically return to the base game.
Pay lines on Jack’s Beanstalk
Jack’s Beanstalk uses a total of 25 pay lines. These pay lines are fixed and cannot be adjusted whilst playing. Technically speaking, this is an advantage, since lowering the number of pay lines would only decrease your chances of winning in the game. That is, the special function of the wild makes sure that you can win a lot during the re-spins. This is the moment the Big Win will appear on the screen, and a shower of coins will fall through the slot.
