Jack’s Beanstalk Slots

Jack's-BeanstalkJack’s Beanstalk is a game which was created by NextGen Gaming. It’s one of their latest releases and it is themed around the famous story with Jack and the magic bean which turns into a huge beanstalk, a way to get into the realm of the giants which live up in the clouds. The story has actually gotten attention from another developer as well, so it’s not the only slot machine to focus on it.

The game uses 25 win lines, active at all times, and with 5 reels spinning to offer you prizes. You also get a bonus game here, free spins, wilds and scatter symbols. There is a top prize of $5,000.

Features of Jack’s Beanstalk

If you check out the paytable, you will find scatter symbols, the Upwild feature with free spins, the Pick Me feature and some wilds, but only during the free games.

The game comes with two different types of scatter symbols. One of them is the one with the Magic Beans, and it is going to appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4. Whenever you have one of these Magic Beans symbols, no matter on which of the three reels it landed, you will trigger the Upwild Feature

Upwild Feature

During the Upwild Feature, you will get 3 free spins from the slot. The reel on which the Magic Beans were present will start growing a Wild Beanstalk. Each round, the beanstalk will grow by one position, so you start with 1 wild and you end up with 3 wilds by the time the free games are over. Get an additional Magic Bean, and you retrigger the feature.


Pick Me Feature

The second scatter has the Golden Egg on it and it has to appear three times during the same round before the feature can start. You have to choose one of the three Geese next, and you will get a prize which is worth between 25x and 2,500x the value of the total bet. Golden Egg is also present only on three reels, and they’re the same ones, the three from the middle.


Betting options and jackpots

You get to place your bets on 25 lines, with just as many coins being used each round. You don’t have the option to reduce the number of active lines. You can only modify the coin denomination, in the $0.01 to $2 range. The largest wager is at $50, the smallest one at $0.25.

The game awards payouts of up to 2,500 coins, and in this case that means up to $5,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The design of the game is one of the best things about it, the cartoon style chosen from it looking modern enough. Despite the cartoon like quality which also applies to the background, you’re still going to enjoy the image you see there, with green fields and big rivers, with clear blue skies and little houses. The icons include poker cards among them, but there are very well done themed symbols as well.


Symbols: Magic Beans (scatter), Golden Egg (scatter), Jack (2,500 coins), Giant (1,000 coins), Giant’s Castle (500 coins), Harp (250 coins), Axe (250 coins), Ace (100 coins), King (100 coins), Queen (100 coins), Jack (100 coins) and 10 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The story is a popular one, and the game has the right graphics and even the right features to be a fun way to spend some time. The prizes it offers tend to be on the low side for the most part, but it doesn’t ask of a lot of money from its players either.

The Jack’s Beanstalk slot machine is offered through the NextGen platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
