The wombat says: This is one scary goddamn slot Wombat fans and not a game for the faint-hearted. NetEnt have rolled out their yearly Halloween outing, and it’s absolute cracker! Don your scariest mask and let’s get spinning!
NetEnt are known for their visually stunning games like the Coins of Egypt slot and this spooky slot just adds too that reputation.
Look and Feel
Glowing pumpkins light up the spooky scene and your reels are set between two crumbling columns against a backdrop of fog and crows. No-one does a licensed slot like these guys (if you don’t believe me, try the Vikings slot which will knock you out, I guarantee it!)
As is always from NetEnt, Halloween Jack features stunning graphics. Uneasy and unsettling is how this wombat felt as the reels spin – perfect if you’re in the Halloween mood. Oh, and the best bit: when you land the Free Spins ghoulish Jack zooms out of the screen to congratulate you – it is really very frightening indeed! If you get too freaked out, you can always head to a jolly game like the Rainbrew slot or Finn and the Swirly Spin. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Halloween Jack is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 25 fixed paylines. Your symbols on the reels are all pretty terrifying and include a scary lady, the red-eyed horse (possibly a zombie), a very frightening vampire bat, plus and ominous huge crow and the glowing horseshoe.
Bets start at 20p and go up to £100 per spin, which means that both high rollers and low stakes players can enjoy a spin on the reels.
The 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards make up the lower values and are being grabbed by what looks like zombie hands.
The glowing scary ass pumpkin (Halloween Jack himself) is wild symbol here and will substitute for all others on the reels to help give you extra winning combos – all except for the bonus symbols. It will land on reels 2 to 5 only.
And speaking of which, the golden treasure chest is the Scatter symbol and the key to the bonus round.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Before I go into this feature, can I just say: “OMG, how scary is this girl?” I am phoning my mummy right NOW.
Anyway, let’s distract ourselves with this Walking Wilds feature shall we which is a nice little feature and one that NetEnt have used before in games like Jumanji. When a wild symbol lands on the reels, it will pay out a 3x multiplier on any win that it is involved in (which is very nice). PLUS it also awards a free re-spin and will move one reel left at a time until it disappears from the reels.
Land 3x or more treasure chest symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll set off the free spins round. Next you’ll get 10 free spins with some rather cool bonus features that you can trigger. They include:
Stacked Hell Hound Wild
Collect 3x of the lantern symbols and the next wild that lands will turn into a stacked Hell Hound wild and trigger off the Walking Wild feature.
Stacked Jack ‘O Lantern Wild
Collect 6x of the lanterns and the next wild that appears will be a Jack ’O Lantern Wild stacked 3 rows high. Nice!
Expanding Reaper Wild
Collect 9x lanterns and the next wild that lands will become an Expanding Reaper taking up the whole reel. It’s spine-chillingly good..
Well, it’s Walking Wilds are the game changer here wombat fans and during base game they will land very often! Chuck in some great graphics and seriously scary sound effects (which really do give you the willies) and this is a game you should play.
