We have here a little nod to the cartoon comic book heroes of our youth. Boku Slots loves it when two things collide and with Jack Hammer they are exploding onto our screens with the retro ‘bang’, ‘pows’ and ‘wallops’ we grew up reading. We have the amazing team at NetEnt to thank for bringing to life the character Jack Hammer and his arch nemesis the evil Dr Wuten. So make sure you read on to see if this is your kind of game.
Jack Hammer is a 5-reel and 25 pay line slot that offers up an amazing 97% RTP for its players. The game is well animated with its comic book style graphics and thankfully it has a very low-key sound track, making it easy to play with the sound on.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 25p per spin and can be increased up to a maximum of £250 per spin. Make sure you have adjusted the coin value and coin level to suit your requirements, before hitting the spin button.
Wild Symbol – The wild symbol is depicted by the word WILD in front of an exploding background, in true comic book design. It substitutes for all symbols except the bonus spins.
Scatter Symbol – Your scatter is shown by what looks like dynamite ticking away. Land 5 or more of these across the reels and you will trigger the bonus spins feature. If you land 3 or more of your bonus spin symbols, you will also trigger the sticky win feature as well.
Sticky Wins Feature – What we love about Jack Hammer is that NetEnt has taken a regular feature and tweaked it slightly. So instead of sticky wilds you have sticky wins. This means if you land a winning combination of 3 or more symbols, the wheels will respin whilst that combo remains in place. If any further matching symbols appear they too become sticky and remain in place whilst the reels respin. The respins end when there are no more matching symbols on a new spin and your total win is added up and moved to your balance.
Bonus Spins Feature – When you have landed 5 or more of the scatter symbol which is the ticking dynamite, you will trigger the bonus spins feature. The amount of spins you are allocated are as shown below:
- 5 scatter symbols awards 10 bonus spins,
- 6 scatter symbols awards 15 bonus spins,
- 7 scatter symbols awards 20 bonus spins,
- 8 scatter symbols awards 25 bonus spins,
- 9 to 15 scatter symbols awards 30 bonus spins.
The joy you have here is that because we have the sticky wins feature that is also activated on 3 or more scatter symbols, you are in with a chance of hitting those higher spins. All wins are tripled on bonus spins as well.
Whether Jack Hammer defeats Dr Evil Wuten or not, we had an amazing time playing this slot. It didn’t once get boring or monotonous and the features triggered fast and often. We look forward to playing Jack Hammer 2 and hope it lives up to its predecessor’s high standards.
