Jack and the Beanstalk is one of a handful of children’s fairy tales which are known across the world. It is a captivating adventure of a young boy, a giant and a magical beanstalk. While many people will think of the tame, child-friendly tale, the original story, published with the title “The Story of Jack Spriggins and the Enchanted Bean” around 1734, gives a more adult-themed version, which includes threats, sex, and violence.
NetEnt has succeeded in capturing elements of this story and created a thrilling slot game which could see you quickly jumping like a Mexican bean. The game is available to play on desktop as well as mobile devices thanks to its mobile-friendly variant, Jack and the Beanstalk touch.

What really makes this 3D video slot stand out is its numerous game features which can reward you with big wins, relatively quickly. In fact, apart from the opportunity to win additional free spins, you can also participate in a treasure hunt which could massively increase your prize money.
NetEnt have carefully designed every aspect of Jack and the Beanstalk, from the multiple game features to the overall layout and feel of the game. The slot is set just outside of Jack’s humble home and throughout the game you will enjoy a number of surprise animations.
Even the soundtrack has been curated to reflect the different stages of the game, starting with chirping birds during calm moments and switching to energetic music when wins and game features are unlocked.
The game offers you three exciting features, namely the Walking Wild feature, the Treasure Hunt feature, and the Free Spins bonus. The Jack and the Beanstalk game also naturally includes wild symbols, which can replace almost any other symbols to give you a better chance of winning.
Walking Wilds is a unique feature offered by NetEnt in some of its online slots. Whereas in most other slot games the wild symbol is stationary, in this feature landing the wild symbol generates a re-spin where the wild symbol moves one reel to the left. This continues until there are no more reels for the symbol to move to.
In Jack and the Beanstalk Walking Wilds feature, every win which includes wild symbols is multiplied by 3x. This feature is available in the main game as well as during free spins. In the main game, the symbol is a golden box with the name of the game written in gold. However, this can change during the free spins bonus.
Activating the Jack and the Beanstalk Free Spins feature is simple. All you need to do is land three of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. These symbols are easily recognisable as the open chest with bright purple jewels. You will receive 10 free spins at first, however, if you land a further three scatter symbols during free spins, you will get an additional five bonus spins.
We have saved the best feature for last. The Jack and the Beanstalk Treasure Hunt feature is automatically activated during the Free Spins feature. As you are spinning the reels watch out for the fifth reel, where you can land a key symbol. The more key symbols you land, the better your chances of getting a massive win.
Once you collect three key symbols, the next wild symbol transforms into the double stacked wild of two money bags. Then, after you collect a further three key symbols, the next wild transforms into a triple stacked wild of golden hens. Finally, if you manage to collect nine key symbols during free spins, the expanding golden harp wild appears. All of these stacked symbols are also walking wild symbols.
|3 key symbols =||2 Stacked Money Bags|
|6 key symbols =||3 Stacked Golden Hens|
|9 key symbols =||Expanding Golden Harp|
