Megaways Jack is a 6-reeler, offering up to 117, 649 ways to win. It is playable across desktop and mobiles and accepts bets in the range 0.20-20 per spin.
The symbols you will land on the reels are represented by low-value A to 10 Royals, as well as better-paying cow, goose, Jack’s mother, and Jack himself with the latter being the top payer among them. The golden eggs is the wild that appears on all reels except the first. There is no scatter.
Similar to all Megaways slots, Megaways Jack uses cascading symbols that give you the chance to score an unlimited number of wins in one spin. The symbols that form a winning combination are removed from the reels and replaced by new symbols that may form a winning combination as well.
The feature ends when the symbols that appear in view do not form a winning combo. Every new combo comes with a different number of ways to win, which is essentially the feature that made the Megaways slots so popular.
Every winning cascade makes the leaves in the progress bar golden. When you have eight golden leaves, the free spins feature is triggered. The golden leaves will lift you up to the clouds, but if you do not make it to the top, the ladder will reset.
Magic Beans – land three magic beans in one spin and you get 1, 2 or 3 extra steps on the beanstalk ladder.
Magic Harp – randomly triggered feature during the base game that awards you a re-spin, extra steps on the beanstalk ladder, up to 4 wilds added to the reels, or up to a x5 multiplier
The number of the free spins and the starting multiplier are determined by the number of consecutive tumbles you made. Every winning cascade during the free spins round increases the multiplier x1. If a reel with 7 symbols appears during the free spins round, you get the max 117, 649 ways to win for the remainder of the free spins.
The magic harp modifiers may randomly come into play and award you extra wilds, progressive multiplier or extra free spins.
Bonus Buy Feature
If you reside in a jurisdiction where the bonus buy feature is available, you may want to take advantage of it. The feature is configurable, meaning you can pay between 30x and 130x your stake worth. The number of free spins, RTP, and locked reels are adjusted accordingly.
It would not be excessive to say that Megaways Jack is one of the most entertaining Megaways slots we have reviewed lately, and we are curious to find out if it would attract a large playerbase.
*As we are carrying out this review weeks ahead of the official launch date, some in-game elements might be missing or incomplete. We will update this review (if needed) once the slot goes live on June 17, 2020.
