Halloween Jack is a NetEnt slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Straight out of your deepest, darkest nightmares, this high variance game can give you monstrous rewards to those who dare spin the reels. It comes with a Walking Wild feature where wilds shift with free re-spins – wilds also give you a 3x multiplier. Then you have the Free Spins feature where the Walking Wild feature also comes into play. With up to 15 free spins to be won, look out for lanterns as these trigger the Jack ‘o’ Lector feature which can give you stacked 2-high, 3-high wilds that give you re-spins as well as a wild reel that shifts with each free spin. A seriously superb slot from NetEnt!
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.
