Slot theme

The Jack and the Beanstalk Slot is based on the fairy tale where a little boy called Jack sells his poor mother’s dairy cow for some magic beans, which his mother throws into the garden soil in disgust. Then something amazing happens and the beans proceed to grow into a gigantic magic beanstalk. Jack can be seen as the original Bart Simpson and where players are in luck is that they can follow Jack up the legendary beanstalk in search of the fortune that could change their life forever!

Whether a fairy tale theme excites players depends on their tastes but it is hard to criticise the imagination that went into making this Slot game.


This imaginative Slot game is made up of all the characters and items those in-the-know would expect to see. There is of course Jack, the mischievous boy who wants to find a fortune, there is a two-headed giant from the top of the beanstalk, a goat from the family’s farm, a watering can to help the stalk grow, and an axe to cut the stalk down if the giant appears. Then there are 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace symbols, made of branches from the stalk, plus a Treasure Chest, a Key and the Jack and the Beanstalk icon symbol.

The Treasure Chest is the game’s Scatter and if players find three they will receive a tremendous 10 Free Spins. If players find three additional Scatter symbols during these brilliant Free Spins they will get another five added to the game.

The Jack and the Beanstalk icon symbol acts as a Walking Wild and it gives you an extra re-spin for every reel it lands on as it creeps to the left. It substitutes for any other symbol except the Scatter and Key.


Players who land on three or more Treasure Chests will be thrown into a Bonus Round with 10 Free Spins. During the Free Spins round, excitement builds as players wait to see if they will find keys. Three key symbols will present you with two stacked Money Bags, six keys will bring you three stacked Golden Hens, and if you are very lucky and get nine keys in the bonus round you will get the Golden Harp wild symbol. Plus the Walking Wild symbol gives you the chance to multiply your win by three!
