The Pumpkin King has landed on the NetEnt slot reels and he looks incredible in this Halloween Jack mobile slot which has some truly nightmarishly big wins.
We love it when a slot game provider really thinks about a new slot theme. And NetEntertainment is brilliant at putting together atmospheric Halloween slots, from the truly terrifying Zombies online slot to the creepy Mythic Maiden game, they clearly love all things horrifying.
And this video slot is horrific. From the green ghostly features that appear on the reels in anticipation of more scatters, to the Grim Reaper himself appearing during the free spins, you have a story worth exploring.
If you’re interested, go to the paytable and right at the bottom you’ll get an interesting exert into a woman’s slow descent into madness and the story behind the jewellery box scatter symbols that trigger all the monsters to come out and play.
Creepy is an understatement.
Of course, once you look past the theme, you start noticing that this is basically the Jack and the Beanstalk slot.
The Jack O Lantern is the wild symbol and when it shows up, you get a free re-spin of the five reels as it slowly moves from right to left. That’s the main focus of the base game, and you have to love this walking wild respin feature to truly appreciate this Halloween Jack game by NetEnt.
Why? Because whilst you are mostly waiting for the free spins to hit, these can take a day and a night to show up. Think 200 odd spins on a good day.
At the end of the day, this is a medium to high variance slot machine. If you can’t handle a slow base game, you should probably head to Coins of Egypt slot instead.
The Halloween Jack free spins are where this slot game truly turns to the dark side, and how you fare on that first round will decide if you love or hate this casino game.
Mostly because we’ve played 10 free spins where we’ve walked away with maybe 5x our bet. And then there are times when we keep catching wilds and re-spin making those 10 spins feel like 30 spins, and you get more impressive wilds.
We are talking wilds that come stacked 2 or 3 symbols high, or even the expanded wild which hits just the sweet spot. We’ve walked away with 1,500 times our bet thanks to the expanding Death Reaper symbol, and we would open that spooky jewellery box again and again.
Halloween Jack is not for the faint of heart. In fact, it’s a love it or hate it kinda game, and as you can tell by the 5-star slot review – you know where we fall on this superb NetEntertainment gambling game.

Walking Wilds: When a Jack O Lantern wild symbol appears on the reels, you will be given a re-spin. The wild will then walk from right to the left of the screen, and you'll get a re-spin for every move from right to left.
So, for example, if you get a wild on reel 5, you will get 5 respins as the wilds move from reel to reel.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 jewellery box scatters anywhere on screen will activate 10 free spin bonus games.
If you get 3 more boxes during the free spins, you'll get an extra 5 spins. During the Halloween Jack free spins, you will have special lantern symbols.
Every three that you catch will unlock:
These are all walking wilds, on top of the normal walking wild symbol.
The Halloween Jack slot on mobile is beautifully thematic.
With those thundering clouds in the background and the walking wild keeping the game moving, we can see ourselves playing this well beyond old all Hallows eve.
Even the Ace to 10 symbols looks like they've been skillfully carved out of stone with hands moving around to give each symbol a unique and wonderful feel for a usually familiar sign.
But it's the free spins bonus game that truly make this casino slot a dream and a nightmare, as you either get huge wins that make all your long sacrifices worthwhile or leave the casino at the hands of the grim reaper.
If you like classic horror and walking wilds,The Invisible Man slot by NetEnt has plenty to recommend it.
