Players in search of a new Halloween themed video slot should definitely check out Halloween Jack. Developed by NetEnt, the title has a wealth of gameplay mechanics, aesthetics, and audio that combine perfectly to keep players on the edge of their feet. As you would expect from a NetEnt video slot, this title has Wilds as well as other special features that can help players win. Considering this is a NetEnt-developed title, players should have no issues enjoying it on either their mobile devices or on their desktops/laptops (provided these support HTML5).
Halloween Jack is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 20 betting lines that pay from left to right. As with a lot of NetEnt titles, players can change the betting level and coin value on this video slot if they wanted to increase or decrease their bets. At betting level 1 and coin value .01, the minimum bet will be €.20. Maxing out both coin value and betting levels would result in bets of €100 for every spin. Winning will require a spin that would result in three symbols of the same type showing up on a betting line. The symbols need to be adjacent to each other and their appearance will need to start from the leftmost reel. As of this writing, NetEnt has set the RTP for the video slot at 96.28%.
To help improve players’ chances of winning, NetEnt included a number of features that can randomly show up during spins. Much like most video slots these days, this title has a Jack-o-Lantern Wild symbol that can appear randomly and can substitute for all symbols other than Scatters and Lanterns. If a spin results in a Wild symbol/s appearing, players will get a Re-Spin and the Wild symbol/s will then move to the reel left of where it appeared. This Walking Wild feature will only stop once all the Wild symbols disappear on the reel. It should also be noted that Wins featuring the Wild get a x3 multiplier. This feature activates on both the main game as well as during Free Spins. Speaking of Free Spins, this mode/feature is activated with the appearance of 3 or more Jewel Box Scatter symbols during the main game. Regardless of how many of the Scatter symbols appear though, the number of Free Spins is fixed at 10. With that said, players can get 5 additional free spins if 3 or more Scatter symbols appear while Free Spins is active.
Special Features & Conclusion
Once activated, the Free Spins mode has a special Jack’O’Lector features that can further increase players’ chances of winning big. By collecting 3, 6, and 9 Lantern symbols during Free Spins, players can activate the Stacked Hell Hound, Stacked Jack-o’-lantern, and Expanding Death Reaper Wilds respectively. The Lantern symbols are available only during the Free Spins mode and will only show up on the 5th (rightmost) reel.
