This slot is set in the grounds of an old farmstead, providing a relaxing view out towards the rolling landscape of the countryside. The countryside environment is brought to life with the calming sound effects of the chirping birds and nearby wildlife together with creative graphics and animations, such as the random passing of butterflies and birds in and around the reels. During the free spin feature the background changes as Jack finds himself at the top of the beanstalk. The giant’s castle is set in the background, with dark overbearing cloudy skies and music creating the tension that a big win may be imminent.
The game’s symbols are also thematic. There are high value symbols including Jack, the giant, a goat, an axe and a watering can. Lower value symbols are formed by the swirling foliage of the beanstalk represented by the royals A, K, Q, J and 10.
The wild card is a Jack and the Beanstalk framed logo. When this symbol lands on the reels it becomes a walking wild. The wild will activate an automatic re-spin feature. With each spin the wild will move one reel to the left. This continues until the wild has been removed from the leftmost reel and no further wilds land. An additional benefit of the wild card is that any wins are calculated with a x3 multiplier and it is active both in the base game and the free spins. The wild will substitute for all symbols except for the scatter and key symbols.
The scatter symbol is a lilac decorated treasure chest. If you land three or more of these scatter symbols you will be awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins your bet will remain the same as that placed when the feature was triggered. An additional 5 free spins are awarded if a a further three or more scatter symbols land simultaneously.
There is an extra bonus feature called the treasure chest during the free spins. The treasures that can be unlocked are stacked or expanding wild cards. They are unlocked by landing the key symbol on the fifth reel enough times. Landing the key symbol three times unlocks a wild money bag symbol that is two positions high. Six key symbols will unlock the golden hen wild that is three positions high and nine key symbols opens the expanding golden harp wild, which will cover the whole reel when it lands. The treasure symbols will also act as a walking wild.
