Iron Dog Studios bring us their version of 117,649 ways to win in this Megaways Jack slot, but will it have a happy ending?
Who doesn’t know the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk? You’ve got all the key aspects here in this Megaways Jack mobile slot, from the little cottage to the magical harp, the giant and the beanstalk that you climb to get to the gold.
But in order to climb to the beanstalk and get to the gold, you are going to have a long journey to sell that cow at the market, we promise you that.
That’s ok though, with up to 117,649 ways to win and 6 reels with ever-changing rows of symbols, add plenty of wins, especially as the avalanching wins create explosions on screen that give you a quick win flow that is typical of how Megaways slots work.
And you don’t even have to climb up the beanstalk to get it, it’s sitting right there to the left of the reels.
Randomly during the base game, that harp can give you a multitude of features, from up to 5x multipliers to extra wilds, to more rows in a reel, or a respin to give you more chances of getting scatters.
It’s a fun little feature, but mostly it just keeps you entertained as you wait to catch not one, not three, but 8 magic bean symbols to get just 8 free spins.
During the free spins is where you’ll get the big wins of 25,000x your bet or more thanks to an increasing multiplier on every single win. Without those multipliers, the paytable isn’t worth a whole load.
It’s hard work getting those 8 magic beans, as you have to have multiple avalanching wins in a row to catch that many. Granted, one symbol can make you go up as many as 3 steps in a row, but it’s pretty rare.
And that’s the problem with this Megaways Jack slot game. It’s so damn frustrating, trying to get enough magic beans to get up to the Giant’s castle. Even then you are just as likely to be chased out than walk away with the golden goose.
Thank-fully you do get nuggets of help. Sometimes you can get reels locked so they always show 7 symbols, giving you more ways to win. If you get enough beans, you may start the free spins with a 2x multiplier or more harp features.
There’s hope, but we certainly weren’t lucky enough to trick this game to give us the gold. We’d probably still prefer to play on the Bonanza slot game or maybe the NetEnt Jack and The Beanstalk slot.

Wild: The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except for the magic beans.
Avalanching Reels: Every single win will create an explosion of the symbols, allowing more symbols to drop down. This gives you a second chance at more wins. This continues until no more wins are found via the tumbling symbols.
The Harp: In the base game the harp by the side of the reels may randomly award any of the following features:
During the free spin bonus, these change to:
Magic Beans and Free Spins: The Magic Beans is the scatter symbol and each symbol that shows up can move you up to 3 places on the beanstalk. Once you've climbed 8 leaves, you trigger the free spins:
On every win, the multiplier goes up by 1x. Randomly, reels may also lock with 7 symbols for the rest of the entirety of the free spins feature. When the reels lock, it also increases the multiplier by 1.
If you get 4 tumbles in a row, you'll trigger 2+ free spins.
Buy Free Spins: You can choose to buy any of the free spins above (or less) for a certain amount of cash.
This is only worth your while if you manage to get those big multipliers and big wins.
There's something about this Megaways Jack slot machine that is hard to resist, and not just because of the gorgeous graphics.
But it has a short life span mostly because getting those top multipliers just feels harder than most Megaways slot machines. Which it shouldn't, but that might be because the long laborious climb to the top of the beanstalk rarely pays off.
And that's fine when games like the Medusa Megaways slot have an advantage because the free spins are easy enough to get that even when it doesn't pay huge you don't mind.
Unfortunately, this Jack and the Beanstalk fairytale game didn't quite give us the golden goose, but that's not to say it's not a fun adventure.
