How to Play Halloween Jack Slot
The Halloween Jack slot is a spooky release, developed by NetEnt. There are 5 reels and 20 paylines, with bets starting at just 20p. A skeleton stays put on the screen but isn’t very talkative throughout the game. There are wilds, scatters and extra special feature to be built up with free spins. Are you brave enough to take on this casino game?
An ominous release from NetEnt, the Halloween Jack slot is ghoulishly fun if you can handle the spooks. The game centres around a story of a girl who discovers a cursed jewellery box and finds herself in this game. At Temple Slots, we want you to have less tricks and more treats, but can you creep it real under the pressure of the scary settings?
Prepare to get Spooked
Getting set up to play this dark slot game is surprisingly scare-free. All 20 paylines are in play throughout, but you can increase the amount you bet against these paylines. You can change your coin value between 1p and 50p per payline, which will be multiplied by the 20 paylines to decipher your total bet.
If you’re feeling flush, you can increase the bet level, too. This adds extra weight to every payline and will multiply your bet by the level you set it at. Beneath reel three, you will see your total bet, so make sure you’re happy with this before you spin. You wouldn’t want to get spooked by this!
Hit the spin button which looks like its coming out of the mouth of the skull under reel three. We hope it doesn’t bite.
Paylines are played from left to right and you will need to match at least three of the same symbols on a payline to win on this hallowed set of reels.
A woman whose eyeliner has well and truly run down her face looks very unhappy with some spikes coming out of her head. Creepy though she may look, she is the most valuable character in the game. Landing 5 of the woman on a payline can pay out up to 1000 times your coin value.
The red-eyed horse with a scowl can award up to 750 times your coin value for landing 5 on a payline. Now that would look intimidating.
A bat flying through the reels, and the ominous-looking crow, can both pay out up to 250 times your coin value for matching five-of-a-kind on a payline.
The horseshoe clad in spiderwebs may usually be a symbol of good luck, but with the theme of this game, we’re not sure all is as it seems. You can still win up to 125 times your coin amount for five horseshoes on a payline.
Some incredibly terrifying card symbols held in the arms of perhaps the undead rising from the ground are the lower value symbols. Maximum payouts range between 30 and 100 times your coin bet, depending on value.
Jack’s Special Features
Take all of the features you would expect and give them the spook factor. These, and a special added feature, are sure to keep you looking over your shoulder wile hopefully building your prize fund.
The pumpkin, or jack o’ lantern, is the Wild symbol in this game and can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. It can substitute for all of the standard symbols to make winning paylines.
In addition to the substitution feature of the Wild, there is an added bonus. You will get one re-spin when a Wild appears.
During the re-spin, the Wild symbol moves one reel to the left. On its way, any matches it makes can award wins. This will continue until there are no Wilds left on the reels.
The Scatter symbol in the Halloween Jack slot is the cursed jewellery box which the story is based around.
Land three of the jewellery boxes anywhere on the reels and you will be awarded 10 free spins.
If, during your free spins, you land another three scatters, you will win 5 more free spins!
Jack ‘O’ Lector
During your free spins, you can collect lantern symbols which land on reel 5. Depending on how many you collect, you can unlock different levels of bonus feature.
- Stacked Hell Hound Wild - This sounds petrifying, but really, just collect three lanterns and the next Wild which appears will be a two-symbol-stacked Hell Hound wild.
- Stacked Jack ‘o’ Lantern - Collect six lanterns and unlock a three-symbol-stacked Jack ‘o’ Lantern wild which will cover a whole reel.
- Expanding Death Reaper Wild – If you succeed in collecting all possible nine lanterns, you will unlock this wild. The Wild expands to cover the whole reel and then shifts left one reel at a time. Maximum scare-factor, but maximum potential for winning matches!
At the end of free spins, all collected symbols are discarded.
A Spooktacular Slot
If you get easily frightened, or are scared of the dark, hold tight. The lightning flickers in the background and the flames in the foreground bring a movie-like realistic feel to the game. Imagine the creepy piano and faraway howls and cries you see in the films. It’s here, too. It’s up to you whether you keep the volume on or switch it off.
Halloween Jack slot is a fast-paced game, with no messing around. All of the features and movement within the game are slick, making for smooth gameplay so the only thing you have to worry about is the haunting setting.
The bonus features are plentiful and with different levels of the Jack ‘o’ Lector feature, there’s some leeway for a couple of changes to your game each time you play.
