Jack and the Beanstalk slot
Listening to the tales that our mothers and grandmothers told us in childhood, we closed our eyes and moved to the fantastic world, imagining ourselves in place of heroes. Children's years have gone to the past, but, unfortunately, many dreams have remained unfulfilled. Wishing to please their fans, the developers of NetEnt created Jack and the Beanstalk video slot, which will take you to one of the fairy tales, probably you heard you many times it in your childhood.
The plot of the game is the story about the boy Jack who planted a magic grain, from which soon grew a massive tree in height, leaving the crown in the very heavens. Without thinking, the boy went on a trip, deftly jumping from one branch to another. Finding himself on the ground of two-headed giants, the prankster Jack dragged off from them a magic chicken that could carry golden eggs and rushed headlong to the field.
Personal testers opinion
Jack and the Beanstalk is one of my favourite slot machines. It has the excellent potential of the winning during "the free spins feature". If you are lucky enough to receive 4-5 harps - you will hit super mega win (1000x+). Note that slot is shooting good bonus feature very rear - statistically every 90th bonus feature. In the process of testing for the real money, one of the testers won almost €80,000 of a €25 bet. I recommend betting of €25 (not more), it is optimal for the winning (from the theory of prize pools). The bonus feature (statistically) is triggered in each 168th spin. During the feature, 23% of the prize pool is paid. During testing, my average winning in free spins feature amounted to 40x. Maximum winning was 1 190x. The frequency of any hit during the usual spins is 34.50%. If you see the free spins feature on the last stage (harps) without any big winning - you should stop with this machine for today. If there is a situation, when the slot triggers a lot of free spins features with winnings around 10-25x - same (stop with this machine).
Review and recommendations from the testing team
Jack and the Beanstalk, also known as Jack is quite a beautiful slot with a really good idea, graphics and sound. It is ranked quite well among the players of all nationalities and levels, being preferred by both low and high rollers.
- Why is it so popular? It gained such a popularity thanks to just a single factor, the potential bonus game. This slot may easily give away winnings of х1000 and х2000 and that is not the limit.
- However, despite its high dispersion and regular Wild re-spins, it keeps the balance up quite well, so it is suitable for playing the bonus money and fulfilling the wagering requirements. It does not require a large stock of bets.
- Here you will not get bonus games so often and in most cases, they give winnings of just 50-100 bets.
- In my opinion, the only con of this slot is that it is slow and tedious, even a fast spin does not make it better.
- The recommended game strategy: wait for a bonus game as long as the slot keeps the balance up in the normal game mode. If there is no bonus and your balance keeps going down, you better leave the slot, since Jack and the Beanstalk is part of those slots, at which a balance going down is not a good sign of getting a bonus game.
- Ps: Note that providers regularly change the slot scripts, which may lead to a different slot behaviour. The BNC team will do its best to keep you updated on the changes made! Remember that these are just some of the schemes and examples, you could find a completely different slot behaviour!

- The probability of a hit (any winning) is 34,50%. This number is above middle line due to walking wilds feature (all respins is counted as one spin).

- The average winning from the bonus was 40x. Players can see even 1-2x here.
- Volatility is 8,44 out of 20 (high). This slot has massive potential for big winning. Just "survive" until harps in the free spins feature and catch 3-4 of them.
- Cycle length is long. To collect a huge amount of money, slot needs to take it from the players first. So - a lot of sessions will be in minus.
- The rating of the slot machine for the wagering is 4,02 out of 10. Walking wild feature helps to keep the balance, but it will be going down anyway. Not the best choice for wagering.
