We’re usually not big fans of horror slots. Most of them fail to properly tickle your imagination, and do the bare minimum to qualify. But that’s not the attitude this game has! Oh no. This NetEnt release drops you in the middle of a spooky graveyard. Ahead of you is a thick fog, with only the occasional flash of lightning guiding your way. Do you have the guts to venture forth into the fog, and face the unknown?
The music blends the organ and ambient noises to constantly keep you on edge. Halloween Jack’s RTP is 96.28%, which is higher than the current average. Those willing to brave the horrors of what lies ahead will be rewarded with familiar special features. Free spins that can be retriggered, Walking Wilds that change positions, and enhanced Wilds locked behind collecting lanterns. Yes, dear readers, the true horror of this slot is that it’s actually a clone of Jack and the Beanstalk! The jackpot is worth 600,000 coins.
We’re absolutely amazed at how gorgeous this game is. Every little detail has been accounted for to create the perfect horror release. The symbols are unnerving by themselves, but they’re also paired with the thick fog. The ambient noises and creepy music help your imagination run wild. It’s sad to see that all that effort was wasted on a mere clone of a previous slot.
Coins can be set between ₹1.00 and ₹50.00 for each spin. By changing their bet level and coin value, player are able to also adjust their total stake. You can wager as little as ₹20, or as much as ₹1000 per spin. It’s a great betting spread which will leave most gamblers satisfied.
Symbols are a mixture of playing card royals and haunted creatures. We quite like the creepy hands clinging to the letters and numbers. At the same time, the woman, horse, bat and raven icons all look creepy with their unnatural eye colours. The 600,000 coin jackpot is a promise of a frighteningly good time!
Free Spins: Collect three or more haunted jewellery boxes in any position on the board to trigger ten free spins. If three or more Scatters land after the extra turns have been activated, gamblers will win five more free spins.
Walking Wild: When a Wild appears on the board, it will trigger a re-spin. The Wild will then move one position to the left, and another re-spins is awarded. This continues until no more Wilds are visible on the playing field. So, if another Wild appears while the first one is marching left, the re-spins are extended. If a Wild is part of a winning combination, it will increase the cash prize by 3x. Wilds can replace any icon except for Scatters and Lanterns.
Jack’o’lector: While free spins are being played, there’s a chance a lantern will appear on the fifth reel. Collecting enough lanterns will add the following Wild bonuses:
We could go on and on about the graphics. But we really don’t have to. Unless you come from the distant future, this slot boasts some of the best graphics currently on the market. There’s no way you play Halloween Jack and don’t get put on edge just a little bit.
We loathe to recommend playing a total clone of another game. But we’re willing to make an exception for this NetEnt slot. As this slot proves, the gameplay of Jack and the Beanstalk is still quite popular. However, that slot is quite old at this point, and its visuals have not aged well. We would rather let Jack’s gameplay live on in a package new players will enjoy. Because of that, we recommend Halloween Jack.
