Halloween Jack is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Net Entertainment which can be played from 20p to £100 a spin across all devices including iOS and Android. With a Halloween theme and not for the faint-hearted, hellish features await you including re-spins with walking wilds as well as free spins where lanterns will give you access to 3 different wild features. Enter if you dare!

Visually, Halloween Jack looks fantastic – set within a ghostly, dark landscape, it has a harrowing soundtrack which is actually quite scary. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals which are hugged by creatures’ hands (very creepy). You’ll also see horseshoes, ravens, bats, horses and a female vampire – the latter is the most rewarding giving you 50 times your stake for 5 across a payline.

The Halloween pumpkin symbol is the wild and substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter and lantern – it appears on reels except reel 1 in the base game. Now, any win involving a wild symbol will apply a 3x multiplier. When a wild appears, the Walking Wild feature is triggered.

A re-spin is then awarded – all wilds move 1 reel to the left with more re-spins to follow until no more wilds remain present on the reels. The Walking Wild feature can be triggered in both the base game and the Free Spins feature – more info below.

The Free Spins feature can be entered when you get 3 or more treasure chest scatters anywhere on the reels – your reward will be 10 free spins. If you get 3 or more scatters during the feature, you will win 5 more free spins taking your potential total to 15.

As mentioned, the Walking Wild feature can be triggered on any free spin – this happens when the wild appears on any of the 3 middle reels. Any winning combination involving a wild, like in the base game, is boosted by a 3x multiplier which really helps.

Look out for the lantern symbol which only appears on reel 5 during the feature – when it lands, you will activate the Jack ‘o’ Lector feature which gives you access to 3 wild extras:

  • Stacked Hell Hound Wild – collect 3 lanterns symbols with the next wild appearing on the reels becoming a 2-high Stacked Hell Hound Wild. This will then trigger the Walking Wild feature.
  • Stacked Jack-o’-lantern Wild – collect 6 lantern symbols with the next wild appearing becoming a 3-high Stacked Jack-o’-lantern wild. Again, the Walking Wild feature is then played.
  • Expanding Death Reaper Wild – collect 9 lanterns with the next wild becoming an Expanding Death Reaper wild symbol. You will therefore get a wild reel which shifts 1 reel at a time with each free spin.

I really like Halloween Jack – it looks absolutely fantastic as its crawling with ghosts and ghouls. Variance wise it’s high with maximum wins of 3,000 times your stake on every spin/re-spin/free spin. For this you’ll need a win involving a wild due to the 3x multiplier.

Overall, it’s a brilliant slot from NetEnt which is frightfully feature-packed with tricks and treats. If you like the theme, I highly recommend you play NetEnt’s Blood Suckers II as well as iSoftBet’s Paranormal Activity.
