The goose that laid the golden egg got slaughtered along the way in this Giant Riches mobile slot.
Good old Jack and The Beanstalk… It’s a story that seems to inspire casino games everywhere, including the most famous of all, NetEnt’s Jack and The Beanstalk slot machine.
So how does Giant Riches compare? Honestly, it doesn’t. The graphics are poor; for a new slot for Android and iOS, this looks like it belong somewhere circa 1997.
The sounds are not much better, with generic bells and whistles that do not get you in the mood to search for a happy ending.
We’d say that 2by2 Gaming can do better, but the last slot review we did of their game was the awful Honeymooners game which only got 1 star.
You’ll notice by the picture that this Giant Riches slot is no ordinary machine. For one it’s got a 5×6 reel set up, with the first two reels having symbols thats can come stacked 6 high.
The following 3 reels are split into six mini reels, each of which can contain symbols stacked 3 high.
It sounds more complicated than it is, but the point to bear in mind with this 60 payline Giant Riches game, are that the stacked symbols are the only way to get a win.
Literally. The only way.
Potentially you could trigger as much as 50 free spins if you found as many as 8 scatters across these 8 reels.
But you don’t. You are lucky to find 8 free spins, and that 2 multiplier, whilst helpful, doesn’t guarantee much bigger wins that you can find in the base game.
To be honest, we found the layout confusing, the images boring, and the bonus games only just redeemable.
It’s not that this mobile Giant Riches slot game is unplayable, those stacked symbols can surprise you at time, it’s just that with so many better fairytale slots out there, it would be a shame to waste your time here.
You won’t find much in these giant clouds.

Wild: The Giant Riches slot logo is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except scatter.
Stacked Symbols: All the high paying symbols, including the wild, can come fully or partly stacked across any of the 8 'reels'.
Scatter and Free Spins: The giants castle is the scatter symbol and trigger free spins with a 2x multiplier.
Getting 3 scatters is hard enough, don't expect much more.
As Fairytale slots goes this Giant Riches mobile game fails to impress.
Not only is the theme barely worthy to be part of the 21st century, but the mechanics behind it seemed rigged to give you a spattering of golden coins, rather than the actual golden egg.
The 8 reels and stacked symbols save it somewhat, if nothing else because it's unusual, but it's not enough to make it playable.
Personally, we'd still rather play on Jack's Beanstalk by NextGen, which also isn't that pretty, but has some fun features.
