NetEnt's spooky but fun Halloween Jack was let loose upon the casino game-playing public just in time for a spot of trick or treating in October 2018. With a similar format to the incredibly popular Jack and the Beanstalk online slot game of 2011, you are guaranteed to enjoy some great entertainment along with a mega-paying Jack-o-Lector free spin bonus round. Horror fans will love the screen display which is as atmospherically dark and gloomy as a shadow-filled tomb. Ancient skulls, creepy Halloween lanterns smirking from out of the swirling mist and an eerie, howling soundtrack are sure to make every game player's nerves tingle with excitement.
How to Play Halloween Jack
Halloween Jack is a spooky, fun-filled online slot game that is accessible on any device. The action takes place across five reels and three rows providing a total of twenty fixed paylines. Amidst an action-packed backdrop of lightning flashes, swooping crows and skeletons dragging themselves out from beneath a tombstone, the reels feature a spooky assortment of symbols.
Watch out for the high payers which include a ghostly horse and lost horse shoe, s jet black raven and a flying bat. The zombie style lady brings the largest reward of 50 times your original wager if you manage to land a row of five. As usual, the low paying symbols are playing cards. Whenever you strike a win the symbols are suddenly ablaze with fire and the background music sets off a thumping, echoing heartbeat to add to the excitement.
A scary carved pumpkin head is the wild symbol and appears on all the reels except the first one. It replaces all other symbols apart from the scatters and the lanterns. The scatter symbol is a treasure chest and when it forms part of a winning line, it multiplies your win by three times. Land three scatters in any position and the Jack-o-Lector, one of the most exciting free spin rounds in any slot game, is activated.
