Iron Dog took on the challenge to take things a step further with its latest release Megaways Jack. Since 2011, NetEnt’s Jack and the Beanstalk has been a massive hit with players nationwide, so we are interested to see how Iron Dog studios has interpreted the fairy tale story into a megaways slot game.
Jack is, of course, on another adventure leaving his small little English village behind to take a trip up the gigantic beanstalk into the clouds. Released on the 29th May 2020, the new slot is under licensing from BTG and is available to play all on devices.
Set upon a 6x7 reel set, the highly volatile megaways slot comes with 11,949 ways to win and has an RTP of 96.2%.
Megaways Jack has plenty of features to offer players, along with a chance to win up to 25,000x your bet. You can enjoy playing the casino game from € / $0.20 per spin up to the maximum amount of € / $20.
Please note that the RTP and bet amount may vary slightly depending on the casino you play at, or whether you are playing a demo or real money.
Bonuses and Features
Help Jack climb the Beanstalk and discover if you will come out with the Golden Egg or whether the Big Scary Giants will knock you back down again. Megaways Jack is packed with great features along with a Feature Buy to help you boost those winnings and hopefully help little Jack go home with some goodies.
If you are more interested in the special features a lot has to offer, then Magaways Jack allows you to skip straight to the fun with this Feature buy.
Unlike most, this Feature Buy comes with several options for you to select from including;
- Free spins
- Free Spins with an additional Multiplier
- Free Spins with an additional Multiplier plus Harps
The cost of the feature buy will be determined by the amount your stake is placed at. The least expensive option would be 6 free spins at a cost of € / $8 with your stake set at € / $0.20. The most expensive option available is 11 free spins with a 2x multiplier which will set you back € / $1,500 with your stake set at € / $10.
To trigger the free spins feature, you are required to help Jack climb up 8 levels on the magic beanstalk where you will be awarded 8 free spins. If Jack manages to reach a high level this will affect the number of spins you will be awarded. For example;
- Position 8 on the beanstalk will award 8 free spins
- 9th position on the beanstalk will award 9 free spins
- 10th position on the beanstalk will award 10 free spins + x2 multiplier
- 11th position will award 11 spins + 2x multiplier
- 12th position will award 12 free spins + x3 multiplier
- The last and final position on the beanstalk will award you 12 free spins + x3 multiplier + more chances of landing the Harp.
Jack will increase his position on the beanstalk if the Magic Bean or Harp feature insists he does, or after each winning spin is created.
During the free spins, if any reels become made up of 7 symbols, they will automatically lock symbols on that reel for the duration of the feature. Every time a reel is locked into place you will be awarded an additional multiplier.
When the Free spins come to an end, all reels which were locked will award an additional spin which also has the ability to activate a retrigger. In addition to this, landing 4 or more tumbles will award you an extra 2 free spins.
The harp feature has several functions and can land either in the base game or the free spins round.
Harp in the base Game
The Harp Landing in the base game has the ability to award you with
- Up to 4 additional Wild symbols
- Up to x5 multipliers
- Up to 3 positions on the beanstalk
- Or a single respin while holding on to your beanstalk position.
Harp in the Free spins round
The Harp landing in the free spins can either award you one of the following;
- Up to 4 additional Wilds
- Up to 4 additional Free spins
- Increase the Global Free Spins multiplier by up to +3.
This feature can only be triggered during the main game. To activate the Magic bean you are required to land 3 Magic Bean symbols on the reel at the same time.
Once activated the Magic Bean has the ability to help Jack climb up to three places on the beanstalk.
