When a film becomes a success, it often gets a second part. Nowadays the same happens with video slots and Jack Hammer 2™ is one of them.
It’s the sequel to Jack Hammer™, a video slot based on the comic Dick Tracy, published for the first time in 1931. From this moment Dick Tracey fans enjoyed the comic for quite a while as it was brought to an end in 1977. This means there were definitely more than two parts of this comic. No wonder Dick Tracey has never been forgotten.
And even though Jack Hammer™ isn’t about Dick Tracy himself, you can clearly see that it inspired NetEnt. A very good reason to come up with a part two after Jack Hammer vs. Evil Dr. Wüten attracted so many players.

Jack Hammer 2: Fishy Business
We all know it’s almost impossible for a follow-up to become just as successful as the first part, but Net Entertainment came very close with Jack Hammer 2™. Just as the first part is about Jack Hammer saving the world, the second part is as well. Again it’s up to Jack Hammer to get rid of the evil, and safe the pretty girl.
This means there’s a hero (Jack Hammer himself) and a girl to save. When a combination like this pops up, there must be a villain too. And just as part two consisted of these ingredients, Jack Hammer2 isn’t much different than the first part and I’m not only talking about the story line.
The sequel of Jack Hammer got a slightly different story line, including new symbols, but if looking at this video slot in general, it does have a lot of similarities. Nothing wrong with that though, because when something is a success, it’s better not to change too much. However, you notice a few changes when you play Jack Hammer 2™. It consist of 99 bet lines, for example, many more than its forerunner.
Let’s be honest, none of the versions would have been so successful without the Sticky Win feature. And again this Sticky Win feature perfectly fits the comic-based theme, responsible for the success of Jack Hammer™.
Just as in Jack Hammer™, you can’t play with just one bet line. The extra features wouldn’t work out. For this reason, you always play with 99 bet lines. Also, responsible for many winnings, especially in combination with the Sticky Win feature.
This means your bet is the level you play with in combination with the coin value. The minimum bet Jack Hammer 2™ offers is 0.50. With ten different bet levels and six coin values between 0.01 and 0.50, there are many betting options possible.
Just as the first part is popular with high rollers for its high maximum bet of 250.00, Jack Hammer 2™ has the same betting options. This doesn’t mean low rollers can’t enjoy Jack Hammer 2™, even though a minimum bet of 0.50 is the lowest this video slot has to offer.
Sticky Win feature
By far the best video slot feature ever created by NetEnt does the Sticky Win feature return in Jack Hammer 2™. And although Jack Hammer 2™ offers a Wild and Free Spins, the Sticky Win feature is the heart of the game.
Without this extra feature, both Jack Hammer slots would have been less interesting and not as highly recommended as they are including the Sticky Win feature.
With every single casino game, Netent strives to come up with innovative and remarkable features. Sometimes they manage, as for example with the Avalanche feature in Gonzo’s Quest. Or the magic portals feature in Magic Portals. But sometimes NetEnt reuses extra features proved to be successful in other games.
In an attempt to keep you interested while playing Jack Hammer 2, NetEnt reintroduced the Sticky Win feature. Very understandable as it doesn’t matter what Netent Casino we are talking about, Jack Hammer has been a success with all of them. Players simply can’t get enough of the Sticky Win feature which comes whenever you get a win, either regular or with Wilds involved in it.
Spin Again And Again
Once this happens, all winning symbols remain on the reels. Meanwhile, the remaining symbols spin again and again. Just until no new winnings are available.
This also explains the need for 15 separate reels instead of the usual five. Each symbol can be held separately to create more wins. While going back in time with Dick Tracy, the comic hero Jack Hammer 2 has been inspired by, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the Sticky Win feature.
But let’s not forget about the other extra’s Jack Hammer is hiding as the Wild symbol should not be forgotten, just as the Free Spins feature. As usual the Wild symbol appears quite often replacing all other symbols except the scattered Free Spins symbols.
During Free Spins Wild will be turning another random symbol into a much more useful substitute, making the Wild feature even more special. Free Spins will get activated when five or more Free Spins symbols appear.
Normally this would be a tough combination to get, but with 15 Free Spins symbols in total and the Sticky Win feature, it’s certainly possible.
Although Sticky Wins happen more often, Free Spins will come by once in a while. If they do you will get 10, 13, 16 or 20 free spins for 5, 6, 7, or 8+ scattered Free Spins symbols respectively. Just as the Sticky Win feature Jack Hammer2 is so famous for, the Free Spins feature is definitely one to look forward too as well, as winnings can go sky high, especially with the help of the 2x Multiplier.
Jack Hammer2 Touch®
It wasn’t that much later after Jack Hammer Touch®, also Jack Hammer2 Touch® could be found between the mobile casino games. And just as Net Entertainment managed to retain the cutting-edge comic based design, so recognisable for the Jack Hammer games, in Jack Hammer, also Jack Hammer2 Touch® remained unchanged. Even though significant changes have been made, Net Entertainment has been extremely careful not to sacrifice any of the great gameplay and excellent graphics that made the games so popular in the first place.
