Jack’s Beanstalk Slot – Nextgen Gaming
Jack’s Beanstalk is a slot we have previewed some months ago from Nextgen Gaming, and over the last few days has now been officially released, you can find it playable in a whole selection of our recommended online casinos that run Nextgen Slots including Mr Green Casino.
Jack’s Beanstalk is a fairly standard release from Nextgen with a few new features, so if you are a fan of fairytale themed slots and are looking for something a little higher variance than standard releases then this might be worth a play.
The slot uses a regular 5 x3 reel layout and has 25 fixed paylines, there are 2 bonus rounds but no regular free spins bonus round as such, instead there are Magic Bean symbols that appear on reels 2,3 and 4 that grant 3 free spins whilst the Upwild feature is activated.
Jack’s Beanstalk Bonus Rounds
3 Free Games are awarded when 1 or more of the magic beans appears on the reels, the Upwild feature adds wilds in the form of a beanstalk at the bottom of the reel, this then grows to the top of the reels with each spin, covering the entire reel on the final spin.
If during these Free Games more magic beans appear on another reel, the number of Free Games remaining is reset to 3 with the Upwild feature then starting on that reel also.
This process continues until the 3 spins are over and no more magic beans land on the reels.
Golden Egg Bonus
The Golden Egg Bonus is awarded when 3 Golden Eggs land on the reels, this then triggers a picking round where the player has to select 3 Geese to reveal various prizes.
The eggs contain random prizes which are multiplied by the bet of the triggering game for each pick, these are in coin values that could be any of the following coin amounts x bet size 25, 50, 75, 125, 250, 375, 500 or 2500.
Nextgen has classified this slot as high variance and given the maximum award in the Golden Egg Bonus and potential 3 wild reels we can see why, the regular game can produce some good wins too with the highest paying symbol awarding 2500 coins for a 5 of a kind.
If the Upwild feature activates on all 3 reels simultaneously you are going to be hoping for matching symbols on reels 1 and 5 for lots of big 5 of a kind wins, on multiple lines.
The stated RTP for this slot is 95.459%, you can check the slot out for real or play money at Mr Green Casino.
It’s worth noting that Mr Green has already started planning for an extra special set of Christmas promotions this year, which will start in around a month’s time, make sure to get registered before this time, and it will be a month packed with great offers and freebies too!
