- Paylines: 20

- RTP: 96.3%
As the name suggests, this online slot game is loosely based on the popular English fairy tale featuring a boy named Jack, who climbed a beanstalk and stole riches--including a goose that lay golden eggs--from the giant who lives in a castle at the top of the beanstalk. The game developers did make a few alterations, which includes having Jack steal a hen instead of a goose in the game intro. Despite the alterations, you still get the small village appeal from the fairy tale setting and background music.
The intro takes only a few seconds and helps set the mood for the game itself. But if you’re not interested in watching it and want to dive right into the game, there is a Skip button you can click. After the intro, or after clicking the Skip button, you will be shown the base game interface, where you can start by setting your wager.
Click the left or right Level tab at the control panel on the bottom of the screen to adjust the bet level. You may also adjust the coin value by clicking on the left or right Coin Value tabs; you can go from 0.01 to 0.50. Once your wager has been adjusted to your liking, you can start playing by clicking the Spin button at the center of the control panel or Auto Play to the left for several uninterrupted spins.
The game features the traditional A, J, K, Q, and 10 symbols, but because it carries the Jack and the Beanstalk story theme, these symbols take the form of beanstalk leaves. Added to these symbols are theme-related icons like a watering can, a goat, an axe, the giant, and of course, Jack himself. There’s also the Wild card represented by the game logo and the Scatter symbol represented by a treasure chest.
You may also see a Key symbol, which unlocks some bonus features that will introduce you to even more symbols--2 Money Bags, 3 Golden Hens, and the Golden Harp symbol. The Money Bags and Golden Hens are both stacked symbols, while the Golden Harp is a special expanding symbol. The three special symbols are unlocked when you get 3, 6, or 9 Key symbols respectively during a free spin.
Perhaps one of the best things about this game is that there are several ways for you to possibly win big. Every single time a Wild symbol appears on any reel, a re-spin is triggered. And what’s unique about this symbol is that it is a Walking Wild, which means it will move one reel to the left after each re-spin and you keep getting a re-spin for as long as the symbol is on the reels.
Another notable feature is that you get 10 free spins when you land at least 3 Scatter symbols. And when you get another 3 or more Scatter symbols during a free spin, you are awarded with 5 more free spins, which means you can get up to 15 free spins at a time.
Perhaps even more exciting is the fact that it is during these free spins when the Key symbol may appear on the 5th reel. Three Key symbols unlock the Money Bags, 6 Keys unlock the Golden Hens, and 9 Key symbols unlock the Expanding Golden Harp. finally, if you land 5 Jack symbols on any active pay line, you win the 1000-coin jackpot.
