Jack Hammer 2 slot from NetEnt

Jack Hammer 2 slot from NetEnt
NetEnt studio could not ignore the popularity of the first Jack Hammer slot and 2 years later (in 2012) published the sequel, which immediately becomes trendy and approved because of its widely beloved older ‘brother.’ The developers enlivened ‘Fishy businesses’ - one even more thrilling and enticing plot than the story in the first version. It all takes place in the marina surroundings of the Grand City, where kidnapping and contraband are staged to happen by boat.

This time our protagonist anti-crime - PI Jack confronts a new lowlife, the claw-handed Don Crabby. Staying strongly on the side of justice, helping vulnerable people, and following his mission - fighting the underworld, Jack Hammer has to face Don’s thugs (goons) in a gun and fist brawl through the challenges of rescue the solo performer Pearl, which was kidnapped for her obvious beauty and talent. 

The Jack Hammer 2 slot has a high-quality comics-lookalike design and pleasant retro music pieces in some moments. Big bend orchestra is announcing your big wins, and with those 99 fixed pay lines, your opportunity to win big is highly probable.

This slot has Low Volatility with an RTP of 97.07%, and the maximum winning per single spin is 990000 coins. The RTP allows obtaining a positive mathematical expectation of winning in the casino. 

Even without being familiar with the original Jack Hammer, you can easily grasp the gameplay and enjoy this PI slot. Just launch the Jack Hammer 2 straight from the link on our page. No logins or downloads are needed.

Personal testers’ opinion

  • The follow-up Jack Hammer slot deviates from the first part in several aspects: even lower variance, but much more winning lines (99 pay lines vs 25), different maximum winning prospect, the different multiplier in the bonus game- here and 2x, instead of 4x in the earlier Hammer version, and a tad other RTP.
  • The frequency of any hit (winning on the pay line) is 23.10%.
  • The machine disperses bonus features statistically every 127th spin (0.79%).
  • The wagering tally resulted in near 6 points, which is good news for the bonus hunters. The low volatility, together with the slot’s short cycle, indicates that it is profitable to cover the requirements here. 
  • However, be cautious ‘chasing’ the bonus rounds, for you might have to wait long, but you may also receive 2-3 of them in a short period with 10-30 spins interval between them.
  • Our test team reports 269x total bets as maximum winning during the examination. 
  • Moreover, we spotted good slot behaviour at 10 CAD bet.

Review and recommendations by the testing team

  • As we mentioned above, except for a few modifications, the sequel is almost a replica of Jack Hamer the first. However, regardless of its retro presence (or specifically because of that), both beginners and veteran gamblers still admire this ‘old’ slot. 
  • Jack Hammer 2 is set to 99 winning lines (instead of the 25 for the previous version), which means a seriously increased number of possible combinations - hence larger winning amounts, despite the lower paytable compared with the value of the symbols of the symbols of the original Jack Hammer.
  • Just like with the initial version, here too, the slot will not let you lose the balance in the base game with frequently dropping winning combinations. Exactly as Jack Hammer first, here also high-valued symbols are seldomly falling.
  • 1-2 bonus Free Spins is triggered in a series with 10-15 spins intervals in-between. This, of course, happens after a long time without any bonus, and the series is followed by a long ‘bonus-less’ period again. 
  • It was detected that the bonus Free Spins contain formations with expensive figures more often than the usual spins. 
  • Perhaps the slot is not lenient to reward you with 1000x + bets, but amounts like 100x and 150x total bets are pretty much possible during the bonus round, which is not too shabby. By this calculation, after a good preserved balance in the base game, getting one expensive symbol combination in the bonus game, your winning amount can pile over 250x total bets.
  • Jack Hammer 2 slot is recommended for playing with bonus money. One good play method for the bonus hunters is to hold on till collecting 80x+ bets from 2 bonus rounds or expensive symbols combination and then exit the slot.

The hidden parameters and settings of the Jack Hammer 2 slot (data from testing)

  • The frequency of falling of the bonus is statistically every 127th spins (0,79%).
  • The probability of a hit (any winning) is 23,10%.
  • The distribution of the winnings is 79% in the main game and 21% in the bonus.
  • The maximum payout during the tests was 269x. This is the low number to in 50 000 testing spins. Therefore, the potential of winning in Jack Hammer 2 is small.
  • The average winning from the bonus free spins feature was 34x. The x2 multiplier during the free spins feature is not enough for big winning.
  • Volatility is 3,93 out of 20 (low)—a small potential of big winning. The main reasons are a lot of lines, low coefficients for small and average symbols. 
  • The cycle length is short. It seems that a player can pass the trough cycle via 1000-3000 spins. 
  • The rating of the slot machine for the wagering is 5,90 out of 10.
  • RTP of 97.07% allows getting a positive mathematical expectation of winning at the casino.

Bonus features

Sticky Win feature

If any 3+ same symbols drop on a winning pay line, they become sticky to its place. Re-spin is initiated automatically. New symbols drop on the rest of the reels and make larger the existing combination or form new extra 3+ combinations. The reels keep Re-spinning as long as there are new wins. When there are no new wins and the Sticky Win ends, all active wins are paid. This feature can occur in the usual spins or during the bonus round.

Free spins feature

Electric Fish-y symbols (acting like Scatters) reward with a specific number of Free Spins. All the wins during them have a multiplier 2x attached (excluding the additional Free Spins), seriously increasing the total winning amount. The number of Free Spins depends on the number of Fish-y symbols received: 

  • 5 Scatters - 10 spins,
  • 6 Scatters - 13 spins,
  • 7 Scatters - 16 spins,
  • 8 (and more Scatters) - 20 spins.

Random Wilds

Special Wild symbols - Claw icon or Fist icon can randomly appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 during the bonus round and substitute all other symbols except Fish-y images and regular Wilds. The appearance of Claw, Fist, or regular Wild during the Free Spins: flashing before the spin and sticking if there is a winning combination is the most lucrative variant of bonus spins. In such mode is registered the maximum winning possible for this machine.

How to win at the Jack Hammer 2 slot machine? (Conclusion)

Our first essential advice is to probe all the slot features and our instructions below in DEMO mode before launching real money sessions.

  • We monitored the slot behaviour with more than 50 000 spins and established that the most favourable results are happening with stakes of 10 CAD (or multiples of 10). We encourage you to try with such stakes but don’t go immediately ‘all in,’ work it gradually.
  • We recommend this game to bonus hunters (and not only to them), relying on the factor ‘3’. 1. Low variance; 2. Short cycle; 3. Nicely preserving the balance.
  •  Rewarding strategy with Jack Hammer 2 (playing with real money or with bonus money) can be: 
  • A) Play till you ‘snatch’ 1 or 2 bonus games with winning that amounts to approximately 80x+ the bet.
  • B) Same applies to 1 or 2 good combinations with top value symbols, which total around 80x-90x bets.
  • After such advantageous rounds, the smart move is to change the game or go to another casino.
  • It is observed that the following plan of actions has a positive outcome with Jack Hammer 2:
  • 1. Play 50-100 spins and track if the slot begins to include new symbols to the existing combinations. This counts, particularly for the low-value symbols.
  • 2. If the slot is often including more of the same symbols (for example, instead of 3OAK mikes begin to reward with 4OAK, 5OAK) making combinations near full screen - then you should go on playing and even raise the bet. The slot is ‘hot,’ and this is how it demonstrates it.
  • 3. If the slot recurrently drops some low-value winning symbols, and during the Re-spins does not include new of the same figures- then you should consider moving away to the next slot cause this one is ‘cold.’
