It was 24th October 2018 that another Halloween video slot was added to what can be called a pretty wide range of spooky NetEnt slots. Good timing with only one week to go to Halloween, by far the most frightening day of the year! It also seems that Halloween is one of NetEnt’s favourite days of the year as this developer has brought quite some spooky games to the NetEnt Casinos already.
I’m sure that with a Return to Player (RTP) of 98% Blood Suckers™ will always be the favourite of many players while the Blood Suckers 2™ slot is bringing amazing animations to the reels. Playing the Zombies™ slot, you’ll end up in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Spooky, but not frightening, the Devil’s Delight™ slot will bring you some fun Halloween excitement. The only branded Halloween slot is Universal Monsters Dracula online slot™ and I’m sure you’ll be intimidated by NetEnt’s Dracula. This is just a selection of what could be Halloween slots, but NetEnt has a lot more video slots available that could get you in the Halloween mood such as Ghost Pirates™, Mythic Maiden™, Spellcast™, The Invisible Man™, The Wishmaster™, and The Phantom’s Curse™ slot.
No matter if Halloween or not, with this famous gameplay (which I will explain later), you will enjoy the Halloween Jack™ slot all year round. Nevertheless, you should be aware this is not a video slot for the faint-hearted. The game will take you deep within a ghostly, dark landscape, and nerves of steel can come in handy.
Halloween Jack™ and Jack and the Beanstalk™
Hellish features seem to await you when you decide to play the Halloween Jack™ slot at one of the many NetEnt Casinos. One of these slot features is the Walking Wild and whoever is familiar with NetEnt’s greatest slot games, will recognise this slot feature from the Jack and the Beanstalk™ slot. And if you are aware of this fact, you might know that the Jack and the Beanstalk™ slot is a high volatility game and able to pay out incredible wins.
While sharing the name Jack, the two NetEnt slots Halloween Jack™ and Jack and the Beanstalk™ have something more to share. What has been a very successful aspect in the Jack and the Beanstalk™ slot is available in Halloween Jack™ as well. And yes, I’m talking about the innovative Walking Wild, but that’s not all the Halloween Jack™ slot borrowed from Jack and the Beanstalk™ as the entire gameplay is exactly the same. I do believe that no NetEnt fan will see a problem in that as this game has been a success ever since it was launched at the NetEnt Casinos in 2011.
No matter how spooky the Halloween Jack™ theme is, there’s nothing frightening about the betting options in this NetEnt slot. The 20 bet lines could be called pretty standard and the same goes for the 5×3 layout. I would say that 0.20 as the minimum but is pretty normal, but there’s something with the maximum bet. Average as a maximum bet these days is 200.00 or 250.00 per spin, but Halloween Jack™ shows a maximum bet of 100.00. Considering that the game took over the gameplay of the Jack and the Beanstalk™ slot, it’s no wonder that the two games share the betting options as well. The maximum bet might be lower than average, but I’m sure that many players would be fine with that as only a small group of players prefer to play with high bets anyway. Besides, you have 10 levels and 6 different coin values available to get to a bet you feel comfortable to play with.
Halloween Jack™ slot features
To be sure of my case, I had to play the Jack and the Beanstalk™ slot, followed by Halloween Jack™ and there’s no doubt that these two games indeed share the same gameplay. This is how the Walking Wild is returning to the reels in the Halloween Jack™ slot while the Treasure Collection can be enjoyed as the Jack’O’Lector.
Sharing the gameplay with the Jack and the Beanstalk™ slot, the Walking Wild is obviously acting the same way. This means that every time a Wild symbol appears on the reels, a Re-spin will be awarded. The Wild will walk to the left until no reel is left and as long as the Wild can continue walking, a Re-spin will be awarded. The Walking Wild feature will be available during the Free Spins feature as well.
Halloween Jack™ involves a Scatter as well, always there to activate some sort of slot feature. And what slot feature. I’m still charmed by the combination of Free Spins and the Treasure Collection. However, this time the combo consists of Free Spins and the Jack’O’Lector!
Three or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels in the main game will activate 10 Free Spins while there’s the possibility to win additional Free Spins. But Free Spins isn’t all there is as you’ll be able to collect the Jack’O’Lector as well.
This extra feature within the extra feature can be unlocked by collecting three treasure chest symbols acting as Scatter. During the Free Spins feature, you’ll be collecting Lantern symbols.
Three of Lantern symbols result in a Stacked Hell Hound Wild of two while six Lantern symbols collected will make a Stacked Jack’O’Lantern Wild appear. Nine Lantern symbols will promise an expanding Death Reaper Wild for even bigger wins.
