Jack Hammer 2 is the sequel to the original comic book slot, developed by NetEnt. It has 15 reels and 99 fixed paylines, with bets starting at 50p per spin. In the second instalment with the crime fighter, we are spoiled with some fantastic features to help make the most of what’s on the reels. From wilds to free spins and win spins, there is plenty to play for in the Jack Hammer 2 slot, which is set aboard a cruise ship.
The Jack Hammer 2 slot opens up with a celebration of his success in the original game. Having beaten the baddie, of course, there is now another one causing trouble. Set on the cruise ship, the party for Jack Hammer has a blonde lady performing, Pearl. The clawed baddie, Don Crabby, kidnaps her and the rest of the story is uncovered throughout the features.
If you are looking to spin with the crime-fighting private eye, then let’s see what the Jack Hammer 2 slot has got in store.
Place your Bets
There are 99 fixed paylines in the Jack Hammer 2 slot game.These 99 paylines are encompassed within a line bet of 50 coins.
You can then decide the value of these coins and how many you want to play per spin.
Starting at 1p per payline, your bet is multiplied by the 50 lines in play. This means that your minimum bet would be 50p. You can increase this if you wish, up to a maximum stake of 50p per payline, taking the maximum coin bet up to £25.
Keen to add some extra weight to the bet? You can change the bet level, which is equal to adding extra coins to each of the paylines. The level should be automatically set to 1, but it can be increased up 10, should you wish.
An increase in the bet level will multiply your coin bet by that amount, too. Any wins, as well as being multiplied by the line bet, will also consider the bet level when rewarding you.
You can check up on the total bet before you start on this investigative mission. It will be displayed just below the green spin button, which you can then hit once you’re happy with your stake!
The reels are filled with fresh symbols, as fresh as the water which the baddie will try to make his getaway in.
As with its predecessor, the Jack Hammer 2 slot has 15 reels. This means that for each position on the game, there is an individual reel for each one. Each of the symbols can then spin independently of one another, which adds great excitement to gameplay, don’t you think?
Wins are paid from left to right, and you will need to match three or more of them to win.
Jack Hammer is back, with his brown trilby and a plaster on his nose. There are two versions of him which you may see at different points in the game, but you’ll know it’s him from his green coat. Landing the maximum of five Jacks on a payline can pay out 500 times the line bet.
Pearl, in one essence, looking calm and cool, and another looking a little less so, is the next most valuable in the game. Five of a kind across a payline will award you 250 times your coin bet.
The baddie himself, Don Crabby, is easily identified by his unusual hands. If you can land Don Crabby all the way from left to right on a payline, you could be looking at 150 times your line bet.
A pair of goons across the whole five columns, should they cover one of the 99 paylines, will pay out 100 times your coin bet.
The lower-value symbols in the Jack Hammer 2 slot include the getaway boat, a crab climbing out of a gun case, and more. Anything which isn’t a character is a lower-value symbol. Top payouts for five of a kind matches can vary from 15 to 35 times your coin bet.
A red explosion symbol synonymous with comic books is the wild symbol. The Wild can substitute for any of the standard symbols to create and extend winning paylines.
Our free spins symbol looks like some kind of zombie robot fish. Land five or more of these anywhere on the reels and you will trigger the free spins feature.
In the feature, you will have to save Pearl from being dunked into a big tank by Don Crabby!Random wild symbols can also appear randomly to substitute any of the standard symbols on the reels.
Free spins wins are doubled, too.
Whenever you land a winning line, or three or more free spins symbols, you can activate the Sticky Wins feature. This sounds unusual, but it is brilliant.
The symbols which make up the winning line are held in place, with all other symbols on the reels re-spinning. This can give you a second or third attempt to increase your wins!
Your reels will keep spinning as long as new wins keep appearing. The feature will end when there are no new wins.
A Smashing Sequel
We loved the original, and NetEnt have done well in creating a sequel which is just as exciting.
Yes, the bonus features are pretty much the same, but the excitement which comes from the new addition to the story is what makes it a joy to play.
The Jack Hammer 2 RTP (Return to Player) is 97.1%.
