Gameplay, Playability and Volatility
Halloween Jack is a relatively standard video slot. It offers simple gameplay, a standard number of paylines and all of the usual features you would expect. However, it does stand out in terms of bonus features. NetEnt have pushed the boat out with a range of features, most included in the free spins mode, that make Halloween Jack fun to play.
The walking wild feature is triggered whenever there is a wild symbol on the reels. Once all wins have been counted up a free respin will be triggered. Once it has been triggered the wild symbol will move one space to the left. The respins will keep happening until the wild moves completely off the reels. If a wild symbol lands on the reels during this mode then this will keep the walking wilds feature going
3 or more scatters landing on the reels will instantly award 10 free spins, every time 3 scatters land on the reels during the free spins an extra 5 free spins will be awarded. During the free spins mode all wins are multiplied by 3 and the walking wilds feature can be triggered, which doesn’t use up any free spins. There is also the Jack o’lector feature which is triggered by collecting lanterns on the fifth reel. When 3 lanterns have been collected and a wild lands on the reels it will turn into a 2 symbol high wild. When 6 lanterns have been collected it will turn into a 3 symbol high wild. When 9 lanterns have been collected it will turn into a stacked wild that covers the whole reel. Each of the wilds still triggers the walking wilds feature
Halloween Jack is a medium volatility game. This means that wins comes along quite often, but they are very rarely set at a high level.
RTP, Wagers and payouts
Halloween Jack has an RTP of 96.28% which is above the market average.
The maximum wager of $100 means that high bankroll players will be able to engage with the game quite comfortably. The minimum wager of $0.20 allows low bankroll players the chance to play the game in the long term without going over budget. The maximum win of 3,000 times your stake allows for a payout of $300,000 which is quite high for a medium volatility game.
Halloween Jack: Overall
Halloween Jack offers a really enjoyable experience from start to finish. It has a large amount of features, most of which are inside the free spins mode, but it also has a very rewarding base game feature in the walking wilds. The only real negative about Halloween Jack is that the free spins takes so long to trigger. 4.3/5
