Jack Hammer 2 – Fishy Business Slots

Jack-Hammer-2-Fishy-BusinessThis is the second comic book themed slot that Net Entertainment releases in the Jack Hammer universe, with the same character being the hero, but with different enemies and story. It incorporates a lot more fish related images and an evil character called Don Crabby, which actually has crab hands instead of regular ones. There is a dame as well, called Pearl, you will find Jack Hammer as the main character and goons that manage to get beaten by our hero.

Jack Hammer 2 comes with 5 reels and a huge number of paylines, 99 being made available to the player. Its prizes will reach $2,500, which is not a lot, but you get a lot of chances each round to get a prize, plus you will take advantage of free spins with multipliers, scatter symbols, sticky wins and wilds.

Features of Jack Hammer 2 – Fishy Business

The features of Jack Hammer 2 are going to include the same sticky wins as the first version, plus a wild symbol, a scatter and free spins with attached multipliers.

To start with, you have the usual wild symbol, one of the more basic versions you will find, as it does substitute for all the regular symbols, but it doesn’t give you anything else (doesn’t have multipliers, doesn’t stack and doesn’t expand). It also doesn’t offer any of its own prizes, something that’s become quite normal these days.


Free Games Feature

The free spins have become almost as common as the wild symbols are, and as usual you need scatter symbols to get them to trigger. In this case, we have a symbol with a fish on it, marked Free Spin. You can have as many of these symbols as there are positions on the reels, so the free games only start when you have a minimum of five scatters. You get 10 free spins for 5, 13 spins for 6, 16 for 7 and 20 spins for free with a minimum of 8 symbols.


The prizes obtained during the free spins are worth twice as much as they do in the base game, thanks to the multiplier of x2 that is used. For the duration of these spins, you will also get random wild symbols to appear, with either the fist or the crab claw in them.

Sticky Win

The Sticky Win is present in this slot as well, just like it was in the first one. Whenever you have 3+ Free Spin symbols on an active payline, forming a combo, you get this feature to activate. It will keep the reels where the winning symbols are located, spinning the other ones in order to get better paying combinations. It will keep doing this until no more wins are formed.


Betting options and jackpots

You don’t actually place a bet on each individual payline, which is a good thing since there are 99 total. You use a total bet instead, with multiples of 50 coins selected, depending on the Bet Level you’re working with. You start with 50 coins, which is the minimum, and you can reach 500 coins. Since denominations go from $0.01 to $0.50, the total bet has a range of $0.50 to $250.

As for the top jackpot, you get 500x in return, so you take home 500 to 5,000 coins. That means up to $2,500 cash, or up to $5,000 during the free spins.

Design and symbols

The game remains just as attractive as was the first title from the series. The symbols use the exact same style, but the action in them is different. You get the city in the background image, once again, only the action takes place at the docks. Don Crab kidnaps a singer called Pearl, so Jack Hammer goes to the rescue and fights of the goons of the evil guy. The comic book theme will appeal to a lot of people, it certainly did to me.


Symbols: Wild Explosion (wild), Fish (scatter), Jack Hammer (500x), Pearl (250x), Don Crabby (150x), Goons (100x), Dock (35x), Boat (25x), Barrels of Fish (20x), Gun Case (20x) and Microphone (15X).


Is It Worth Playing?

Both Jack Hammer slot machines are interesting with their graphics, and they actually have a story behind them that is supported by the symbols. Its payouts are the ones that seem to disappoint at first, until you notice just how many paylines there are, with just as many chances to win during each round.

This Jack Hammer 2 – Fishy Business slot is offered by all online casinos with Net Entertainment software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
