If there is one fairy tale that we remember from our childhoods, it has got to be Jack and The Beanstalk. Who didn’t want to be the boy who gets the magical beans which leads him to treasures and riches in a giant’s castle high in the clouds? Many of us might have imagined what it would be like to climb to the clouds and find a hidden castle.
Now Net Entertainment brings the classic tale in the form of an online video slot that all slot players will enjoy.
Re-creating A Fairy Tale
The thing with fairy tales is that they retain a sense of innocence even if the story is a bit dark. The story of Jack, too, involves him stealing from the giant and killing him when he chases down our hero. The developers have recreated the innocence with a pleasant visual tone and imaginative graphics.
Right from the welcome screen, you feel as if you stepped into the tale. The background is a rundown hut that is reminiscent of the one in which Jack and his widowed mother lived. If you look a little bit closer, you will probably see the bean sapling that has just broken ground. Next to it is the axe: an ominous portent of what follows next in the story. Net Entertainment has created the right first impression, which will only make you want to play the game and take a trip down memory lane.
The Reel Icons
The fairy tale feel continues with the reel icons. Taking centre stage is none other than our hero, Jack. The boy appears with a mischievous smile: a teaser to what you can expect from the slot itself. Then you have an odd looking goat with an expression that will surely have you laughing out loud. The story may be dark and grim, but the developers have added a sense of humour and levity with their reel design.
When the story revolves around a magical beanstalk, can that be far away from the reels.? It appears with an imaginative twist. The developers have used the beanstalk-inspired design for the letters and numbers that appear on the reels.
In the story, Jack gets his hands on all kinds of treasures from the giant’s castle. In the game, you can get your hands on treasures, too, in the form of big bonus wins. The Jack and The Beanstalk logo is a Wild and replaces other icons on the reels. All prizes associated with the symbol are tripled when this happens. The game also has the gold coin sack, the golden hen, and the harp appearing as Wild symbols. To make the slot even more rewarding, you have two special features – Walking Wilds and Treasure Collection. The former allows Wild icons to move to the left to accommodate more bonus symbols. The latter allows players to stack Wild symbols and boost their wins.
Hit The Road Jack
Net Entertainment has ensured that their fairy tale-inspired offering is a must play by offering easy rewards and big bonuses.
