Jack Hammer Slot Review
Grand City’s famous detective, Jack Hammer, is trying to defeat the mad and evil Doctor Wuten, who is looking for a perfect opportunity to destroy the city with his poisonous bombs. NetEnt’s Jack Hammer is a five-reel, 25-payline video slot that offers the Sticky Win feature, where winning symbols remain on the reels while the other reels respin, and the Free Spins feature, which triples all wins. Join the famous detective on this exciting mission and you will have a chance to win up to 750,000 coins, which is the maximum possible payout in the 2011 release.
The NetEnt title is done in a comic-book style, with a private eye theme. The most important character on the reels is Jack Hammer, the famous detective. You will also meet the evil Doctor Wuten, who is the biggest enemy of our detective. Also, Hammer’s Wife is among the high-value symbols, as well as the Newspaper Boy. Wuten’s Zeppelin, which carries the poison, is also there, just like the Phone, Car, Poison and the Newspapers. The Wild substitutes for all regular symbols, while the Bomb Scatter triggers the Free Spins feature.
As for the rules of the game, they are pretty common and all of you who play other NetEnt products will understand how everything functions in the Grand City in no time at all. The 2011 release features five reels, three rows and benefits from 25 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the far left reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. Gamers can bet from £0.25 to £250 per single spin, they only have to set the bet level (1-10) and the coin value (£0.01-£1) and they are ready to spin the reels.
The Sticky Win feature is activated every time you land a winning combination. The winning symbols will remain on the reels, while the other reels perform a respin. Respins continue until you manage to land new winning symbols on the reels. The Free Spins feature is triggered when you land 5 or more Scatters on the reels. Here, the Sticky Win feature might be very helpful, because, when you land an insufficient number of Scatter, the reels respin, while the Scatters are locked in place. It is possible to land up to 15 Scatters and trigger 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 freebies in total. Regardless of the number of freebies you trigger, all wins during the Free Spins feature will be tripled.
When talking about payouts, it is possible to win up to 750,000 coins, which is a very sweet deal. Jack Hammer is the symbol that pays the most, offering 1,000 coins for five of a kind. Both features will really help you win big, especially the Free Spins feature, where all wins are tripled, so try to trigger as many free spins as you can. Jack Hammer’s RTP is 97%.
Jack Hammer on Mobile
Chasing mad doctors who are trying to poison the entire world can be a very dangerous mission and not every gamer out there is prepared to risk his life for big wins. Fortunately for all of us, NetEnt made sure that the 2011 release is playable across all devices, so you can enjoy Jack Hammer on your desktops and on the go.
+ A rewarding Sticky Win feature
+ Up to 30 freebies with tripled wins
+ Interesting theme
– Not easy to trigger all 30 free spins
– Not everybody is a fan of cartoonish graphics
We are positive that you will like Jack Hammer. The theme of the 2011 release is extremely popular, even though not all spinners are fans of comic books. We love the fact that the Sticky Win helps gamers land bigger wins, due to the fact that winning symbols are locked in place, while other reels respin, looking for new symbols to increase the winning combo. Also, the Free Spins feature offers up to 30 freebies, where all wins are tripled. The only thig you need to worry about is the mad Doctor Wuten and his poisonous bombs.
