Players looking for big wins choose jackpot slots, and players looking for frequent wins choose regular online slots. That's the rule. But somehow, Jack and the Beanstalk manages to cater for both crowds.
It might not have a progressive jackpot, but that hasn't stopped NetEnt's flagship slot from paying out big this month. Over at bgo Vegas, not one but two players were treated to jackpots in excess of £10,000. Ruth from Gloucester netted £10,535 from a single £2 spin, while Stuart Banks from Lancashire landed £12,260.
On the face of it, this cute, fairytale-themed game is a standard five reel, 20 payline slot, albeit with above average graphics and an excellent ambient soundtrack. However, it only takes a few spins to discover that it has plenty of tricks to set it apart from its rivals.
For starters, there's the Walking Wilds, which move from right to left with each subsequent spin. So if a Wild lands on reel five, it will stay for four more spins, moving a reel to the left each time. Not only does this increase the odds of the Wild delivering a win, it also increases the chances of Wilds stacking to produce more, and bigger, paylines.
The Free Spin feature, activated by landing three treasure chests on a single spin, also goes above and beyond the call of duty to deliver sky high profits from the giant's castle in the clouds. During Free Spins, landing a Wild at any time triggers a re-spin, meaning players usually get many more than the initial 10 spins. Players can also collect keys, which add up to deliver expandable Wilds of increasing size and profit potential and can lead to gigantic wins.
With all of these bonus features, it's no surprise that the return to player ratio is an impressive 96.3%, or that two players took home more than £10k in a single month.
