Jack and the Beanstalk is an online poker machine based on the classic fairy tale. The game feature 20 lines with Walking Wilds which award frequent re-spins and a free spins feature where you collect keys to unlock different wild symbols.
You can choose from a range of credit sizes starting at just 1 cents and you can also select to bet between 1 and 10 credits per line. The lowest possible bet with all lines active is 20c per spin.
The Jack and the Beanstalk logo is wild for all symbols except the scattered Treasure Chests. Every time at least one wild is on the screen the Walking Wild feature is activated. This feature awards re-spins where the wild symbol or symbols move one position to the left.
You keep getting re-spins until the wild symbol is one position off the left hand side of the reels. All wins with a wild are also tripled. It's quite a unique feature and means you get regular re-spins which can give you a lot of winning action for a single paid spin.
Getting three or more of the Treasure Chest symbols anywhere on the screen gives you 10 free games with the Treasure Collection feature. During the free games a Key symbol appears on the last reel only and collecting keys gives you different types of wild symbols. These wilds are as follows,
- 3 Keys : Wilds appear in stacks of two on the reels
- 6 Keys : Wilds appear in stacks of three on the reels
- 9 Keys : All wilds become expanding wild symbols
This idea of collecting symbols to get better wilds reminds us a bit of the feature on More Chilli or More Hearts in the fact that the faster you can collect the Keys the better your feature should pay.
The three different wilds on the free games are still walking wilds so you can get a whole screen of wilds that will award a lot of re-spins and some huge jackpots of up to 600,000 credits.
To get the biggest wins you really need a re-trigger or two. Getting three or more Treasure Chests during the free games add an extra 5 spins to your remaining feature games.
