Rhyming Reels – Jack and Jill Slots

Rhyming-Reels-Jack-amd-JillJack and Jill is the name of this particular Rhyming Reels slot machine, and like every other title from the series it comes with a theme inspired by a nursery rhyme. This particular rhyme goes back quite a bit, being from the 18th century or later. It’s about a boy and a girl (Jack and Jill), which went up a hill to get some water, but Jack fell down the hill and then Jill tumbled after him as well. No need to find deeper meaning, it’s only a nursery rhyme after all, but all sorts of variations and interpretations for it exist. Microgaming decided to use it as a basis for this slot machine, where the two main characters look like they’re in love.

You are offered top payouts of up to $12,000 while playing this game, with wagers placed on up to 20 bet lines. You have free spins, multipliers, scatter symbols and wilds, all great features.

Features of Rhyming Reels – Jack and Jill

Two different symbols were selected to be used here, one a wild with a multiplier, the other a scatter responsible for the start of the free spins (which also have a multiplier).


The Jack & Jill Logo acts as the game’s wild feature. You can get it to help you out as you play the game, as it is used as a substitute when it lands in the right location. The rest of the symbols on the payline need to be matching ones, but if that happens you can expect a combo forming with the wild’s assistance, plus a prize worth twice the usual amount (2x multiplier applied). It can substitute for all symbols, the exception being the Water Pail scatter. Also, the wild doesn’t form its own combinations in this game, so don’t expect it to award the top jackpot, like it happens in other titles.

The Water Pail scatter is going to bring you some decent prizes, of up to 10,000 coins, though at 50x the triggering bet the amount offered is not as interesting as it is in other games. You need two to five scattered Water Pails to get paid in this slot.

Free Games Feature

Access to the free spins is obtained with the help of a minimum of three scattered Water Pails. They need to appear in the same round, but it doesn’t matter where exactly they land. You get 15 spins for free out of it, with 4x multipliers applied to all wins.

Betting options and jackpots

The slot offers you the possibility of choosing the number of lines that will be active (between 1 and 20), the number of coins usable for each one (1 to 10) and their individual denomination ($0.01 to $0.10). You create your wager from there, with the line bet reaching $1, while the total goes up to $20.

Though the slot only gives away payouts of up to 1,500x, if certain things happen at the same time they could go up to 12,000x. You need the wild symbol to contribute with its 2x multiplier, and the jackpot has to be won during the free spins (4x multiplier). The payouts are anywhere between $1,500 and $12,000 from the same combo.

Design and symbols

The game has an attractive design, though the developers couldn’t help themselves and used the same playing cards that dozens of other slots offer. The story is represented rather well though, with high quality symbols and with attractive adults being the two main characters which seem to be in love. The reels are encased in a book like area, a good choice for a nursery rhyme themed slot.


Symbols: Water Pail (50x bet, scatter), Game Logo (wild), Jack (1,500x), Jill (1,000x), Fountain (500x), Jack Falling Down (400x), First Aid Kit (200x), Ace (60x), King (40x), Queen (30x), Jack (20x) and 10 (20x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s an attractive slot machine, though this only applies to the themed symbols. The game doesn’t pay enough, and only manages to scrounge up an average payout if a couple of multipliers get involved.

The Rhyming Reels – Jack and Jill slot machine is offered through the Microgaming platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
