Jack Hammer 2
Jack Hammer 2
The wombat says: He’s back! Yes, everyone’s favourite crime-fighting Private Eye is in town again for another round of bad-guy busting in the Jack Hammer 2 slot: Fishy Business. It’s got that retro design feel about it like the Steamtower slot, but with all the latest gizmos.
The comic book hero must save Grand City’s most beautiful lounge singer, Pearl, from the evil fish mogul Don Crabby – while you must battle all of Grand City’s nastiest crims to bag yourself some very nice cash prizes… And best of all Wombat fans, Jack Hammer has still got that mystery plaster on his nose, too! Let’s let down to the nitty gritty.
About the developer
Net Entertainment was founded in 1996 in Sweden, and these Scandinavian slot wizards have made a reputation for themselves ever since for creating some of the best online casino games in the business. Their slots are characterised by smooth play and top-notch graphics as well as new and innovative game mechanics. Some of this wombat’s fave NetEnt games include the infamous Starburst and Finn and The Swirly Spin among others…
Look and Feel
We love our comic slots here at Wombat Casino. We’re talking games like the Foxin’ Wins slot among others, so it’s hats off to NetEnt for coming up with the goods once again – although this is a different kettle of fish to their Rock Out range that includes the likes of our Jimi Hendrix slot game.
Yes, this wombat can’t get enough of the cool movie-style intro where we meet the slot’s main characters. And we love the moody pulp fiction graphics, and stylish saxophone soundtrack, too. Set against the backdrop of Grand City’s dark nightscape, your reels are made up of comic symbols including: Jack Hammer himself, Pearl the dame in distress, Don Crabby and a load of nasty looking fish.
How to Play
With 5 reels, 3 rows and a whopping great 99 pay-lines, there’s plenty to keep you busy in Jack Hammer 2 slot – plus all the characters appear on the screen at least twice. The highest-value icons on your reels belong to our eponymous hero Jack, and landing 5x of these on a payline will pay you out a cheeky 500 coins. Wagers start at 0.01 and go up to 0.50 plus your bet levels can be adjusted from 1 up to 10 which means there’s something on offer for al types of players.
Then there’s Pearl warbling into the microphone, and crying in distress in another symbol, meanwhile 2 Don Crabby symbols make up the third-highest payouts, and Don’s meat-headed henchmen make up the fourth. These are joined on the reels by a dodgy dockyard, a motorboat with poor old Pearl tied up, a barrel of manky-looking fish, an empty gun case, and a vintage microphone. Your wild in the slot is the Wild! Symbol which will complete winning combos.
We first saw this handy little feature in the original game, and we’re happy to see it return in the Jack Hammer 2 slot sequel. This cool extra allows you to rack up the wins on every single spin as the Sticky Wins lock a winning spin in place. Then the rest of the reels will keep spinning giving you extra chances to win. Each time a winning combo is landed during the round, the reels will spin again until no more wins have been made. Kerching!
Scatter and Free Spins
Be on the look out for Electric Eel Free Spin symbol. Bag 5 of these slippery little Eels and you’ll get you 10x Free Spins, but you can get up to 20x if you reel in 8 or more of the Scatters:
5 Scatter Symbols = 10 Free Spins
6 Scatter Symbols = 13 Free Spins
7 Scatter Symbols = 16 Free Spins
8 Scatter Symbols = 20 Free Spins
All your wins during this round are multiplied x2, and Sticky Wins work on the Eel Scatters too – so you’ll be seeing a lot of fishy business on your reels… Electrifying! Finally, during the Free Spin round, you’ll come across 2 random Wild symbols that are added to the reels. One is Jack Hammer’s fist punch, the other is Don Crabby’s claw. Could there be any more good news?
Like most games developers these days, NetEnt have ensured that this slot is fully playable on all devices. The mobile version is called Jack Hammer 2 Touch and looks just as good on your smartphone or tablet, as this classy desktop version. We also like that if you are on the go (or your connection is just a bit crap) you can turn down the quality of the game’s graphics to reduce the amount of data transferred.
Which is perfect if like this wombat you’re a big fan of spinning the reels on the move!
Jack Hammer 2: Fishy Business slot has an RTP of 97% which is one of the highest around – making this another great reason to play the game.
With 99 paylines and some good payout rates, this game is low variance which means you’ll scoop a lot of little wins rather than chunky jackpots. But who’s complaining? Lots of small payouts is good as far as we’re concerned. So wombat fans, it’s worth remembering that it’s the sticky win bonus and/or the free spins feature where you’ll be able to bag larger wins.
We loved the original Jack Hammer slot, so were a bit wary when NetEnt announced they’d made a follow up. BUT, we couldn’t happier with this sequel!
The only real difference is that the original only used 25 paylines, while the Jack Hammer 2 slot has a much more impressive 99. Add this to the atmospheric comic-book graphics, and the awesome Sticky Wins feature and you’ve got a cracker of a game. To sum it up: razor-sharp graphics, a bunch of cool characters and a brilliant jazz- lounge soundtrack means there is nothing fishy at all about this NetEnt slot.
Oh my, there may very well be some fishy business to investigate in the world of Jack Hammer, but in our humble opinion- this game came up smelling of roses. Give it a spin and see for yourself!
