Top Casinos to Play the Game:
The dark reels of Halloween Jack are set out in a 5x3 format with 20 pay lines to spin in evil wins for cash. You will need to line up symbols in combinations of 3, 4, or 5 from left to right during both the base game and free spins round. On top of this, you will have walking wilds and free spins scatter symbols to help you bring in coins wins from the depths of the evil created by the cursed jewelry box.
In the paytable, there are 10 regular symbols split into a medium win and low win category. The unfortunate girl, now possessed by the jewelry’s evil, pays the highest reward. 5, 4, or 3 symbol combinations will result in 1,000, 200, or 20 coins paid out. The total number of coins won is multiplied by the ‘Level’ bet. The lowest paying symbol is the ‘10’ giving you 30, 10, or 3 coin wins for 5, 4, or 3 symbols respectively. Any of the regular symbols can be substituted by the wildcard which is the ‘pumpkin’ symbol.
Options in the setting menu are available to control your gameplay and will differ depending on whether you are playing on a mobile or desktop device. All players will be able to control the volume, set quick spins, select auto-plays, and use the max bet option.
Bonuses and Free Spins
Free Spins: The cursed jewelry box is the scatter symbol. Landing 3+ will trigger 10 free spins, and another 3+, while free spins are in motion, retriggers 5 additional free spins. The scatters do not need to land on pay lines to trigger this bonus.
Jack ‘O’ Lector: The free spins bonus includes a lantern symbol. When it hits reel 5 it starts a counter leading up to more evil powers unleashed on to the reels.
- 3 lanterns will release a stacked wild Hell Hound
- 6 lanterns will release a stacked wild Jack ‘o’ Lantern
- 9 lanterns will release an expanding Death Reaper wild
Re-spins: In the base and free spins games the pumpkin wildcard symbol will trigger a re-spin.
Walking Wilds: Re-spins include a walking wild. It will move across the reels from right to left for each respin. Re-spins will cease once the wild symbol leaves reel 1.
Bet sizes, RTP and Variance
The minimum bet is 0.20 per spin and the maximum 100.00. For the low bet, use ‘Level 1’ + ‘Coin Value 0.01’, and the high bet is ‘Level 10 or press Max Bet’ + ‘Coin Value 0.50’. The Halloween Jack slot is rated as high variance as the majority of your big wins will come when the free spins game is triggered. With all the extra stacked wilds and retriggers, players usually exit free spins with big wins. Even with the high variance rating, your expected RTP is 96.28%.
