Jack Hammer is a 5-reel, 25-payline, comic strip themed video slot launched by NetEnt in 2012. The action is set in the hardy, glamorous underworld of our crime-fighting private detective.
The game has rich and sharp graphics and animations, developed in a colourful cartoony and comic strip style to add to the theme, and make for a visually engaging experience. Sounds effects are nothing to write home about, however some pleasant and fitting jingles accompany your wins.
The game features a whole host of characters and items, removing the traditional J, Q, K, A symbols for Jack Hammer, Evil Dr.Wuten, a ringing phone, a car chase, an airship, a paper boy, a lady in distress and more.
The slot is an affordable choice for most players and should appeal to all different levels of casino players. While the game doesn’t hold a progressive jackpot, the base game and free spin payouts are quite remarkable and the fixed jackpot an impressive 250,000 coins
The Wild can appear anywhere on the reels and can replace all other symbols except for the scatter. The scatter is represented by a Ticking Bomb Free Spins icon and can appear anywhere on the reels.
Even though they don’t offer any payouts like they would in other video slots, they are the key to triggering the free spin round as five or more of these will let players enter the bonus round.
Although the game doesn’t have exceptional base game rewards, there is still a maximum payout of 1,000 coins with five Jack Hammer icons on a payline. The game doesn’t hold a progressive jackpot, but the base game and free spin payouts are quite remarkable and the fixed jackpot available through the bonus round an impressive 250,000 coins.
The free spin round is the main bonus round and without doubt the highlight of the game. Players will need to get at least 5 Free Spin icons to trigger this round and can then enjoy 10 free spins.
Any more than 5 scatters will get you each 5 additional free spins up to a total of 30 free spins when 9 or more scatters appear. All of the payouts during this round will be see their standard value (based on the pay table) trebled.
The game also has a Sticky Win feature, and though this is not really a bonus round, it can help increase your winnings. This is triggered by a winning bet line or at least 3 Free Spin icons.
Once any winning combination is completed, the reels on which it appears will be held as other reels re-spin, offering the opportunity to increase the size of the win. The reels will keep re-spinning so long as winning combinations are formed. This will carry on until the entire screen offers winning symbols or no additional winning combination is generated.
