The wombat says: Microgaming (who also built the Racing for Pinks video slot) bring us a 3rd instalment in their ‘Rhyming Reels’ slot series, that are all based on children’s nursery rhymes – and this time it’s ‘Jack and Jill’ that gets the slot treatment. Remember how the ditty went?
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after
Up Jack got, and home did trot
As fast as he could caper;
To old Dame Dob, who patched his nob
With vinegar and brown paper
Ahhh, such sweet memories. But we’re pretty sure this particular Jack and Jill have grown up quite a bit since they were appeared in that innocent nursery rhyme, as their trip up the hill has become a bit on the saucy side. Yes, a very buxom Jill appears to have lost her bra in the process of ‘tumbling after’ Jack, while Jack himself is sporting a particularly cheeky look on his chops. It could be something to which having his nob patched. Ah well, there are plenty more fish in the sea, as they say in the Alaskan Fishing slot (another one from the Microgaming studios).
Like most of Microgaming’s slots, this game has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines – well, they also have a whole range of 243 Ways too Win games like the Win Sum Dim Sum slot I suppose. On this slot, your low value symbols on the reels are made up of the standard playing cards 10, J, Q, K & A while the big payout symbols are all themed around the famous nursery rhyme. They include; a first-aid kit, a water well (with Jill’s bra hanging off it. Mystery solved), smirking-faced Jack, Jill in a see-through shirt, and the pair of them together about to ‘roll’ down the hill (or in the hay whichever way you want to look at it).
The Wild in the slot is the Jack and Jill logo which will substitute for all other symbols on the reels. It will also add a 2x multiplier to any winning combo that you land. The pail of water is the scatter symbol in Rhyming Reels Jack and Jill slot – so you’ll need to get 3x or more of these to set off the Free Spins bonus.
Free Spins Feature
Once you’ve landed those Scatters, it’s 15 Free Spins for you! In fact, you’ll be so dizzy after the bonus round, you may fall down that ruddy hill yourself Wombat Fans!
And there’s more good news; land any winning combo during the Free Spins feature, and your win will get a 4x multiplier added on to it.
It’s enough to make this wombat wanna lose his undies too!
‘Oooh matron’. They might as well have called this Carry On Jack and Jill, it’s so saucy. Although Microgaming have been inspired by a children’s nursery rhyme, this is deffo an X-Rated slot! To be honest, we prefer their other Rhyming Reels title, Old King Cole, with its Free Spin 7x multiplier, Gamble Feature and rap soundtrack. That said, aside from the innuendoes we didn’t mind this game. The Free Spins are easy to trigger, and we are always fans of a Wild multiplier, as it stacks up small but frequent payouts. So overall it’s a thumbs up from us.
Wombat Score: 3/5
