The much loved mobile pokie, Jack and the Beanstalk, has finally been released by NetEnt on mobile devices through their NetEnt Touch platform and we’re very happy to say that it totally delivers just as you’d expect any good NetEnt pokie to.
You’ll only find this game at casinos that run the NetEnt games or software as part of their portfolio but luckily this includes great casinos such as Casumo, Mr Green and BGO Vegas – all highly recommended by us here at the Australian Mobile Casino Expert.
Jack and the Beanstalk is a 5 reel and 3 row video pokie that has 20 paylines available, which makes it a pretty standard video mobile pokie in that respect. As per usual it’s up to you in terms of the level you want to play at so you can set this and the coin value, giving you a betting range between $0.20 and $100.
The beauty with the game is that NetEnt have taken the innovative approach again and have loaded it with plenty of features and bonuses to keep all mobile casino players entertained whilst giving them the opportunity to win plenty of money along the way.
The premise of the game is to help Jack gain his riches and the tiles are made up of Jack himself along with images from the famous childrens story and as usual, you make winning paylines by matching relevant tiles across the reels. It’s the features that set this game apart though and they’re a little different from the norm at times.
The first innvovative feature is a Walking Wild which occurs when you get a Jack and the Beanstalk wild symbol on your reels. When it lands, it will then trigger one re-spin and it will move across one tile to the left and you will continue t receive re-spins until the wild is no longer on the reels – so ultimately a maximum of 5 re-spins. All wins during these Wild re-spins will have a multiplier of x3 applied to them, so there’s a real chance to win big.
Then there is a scatter symbol in the form of a treasure chest. If you get three or more of these in the main game it will trigger the free spins game where you’ll get 10 free spins. However, get three or more treasure chests in the free spin games and you’ll be awarded a further five free spins!
Within the free spins game, you will start to collect keys to treasure chests on reel 5 of the pokie. If you collect 3 keys during this time, your next wild will be a stacked wild of 2 money bags, which will help you to win bigger.
If you collect 6 keys during the free spins game, you’ll be rewarded with a stacked wild of 3 golden hens, giving you even bigger winning capabilities.
However, if you collect 9 keys during this time, you’ll trigger the expandng wild in the form of the golden harp and this is your best chance at a big payday and once all the free spins and wilds have been utilised, the game will go back to the main game so you can continue playing.
All in all, it’s a great new take on a well-known feature and it really adds something to the game; a game that we really recommend very highly here at the Mobile Casino Expert.
