Jack Hammer 2 Slot Review
Adding Jack Hammer 2 to the list of free slots games here on Casino Expert was an easy decision. This is one of the best slot games that Net Entertainment has produced and still consistently makes the top ten on many slot game fans lists today.
If you've ever seen the film “Dick Tracey”, then you'll know exactly where Net Ent drew their inspiration from for this slot game. It is full of comic book characters, and they pick up in this sequel where we left off in the original Jackhammer
It is arguable whether this game is better than the one that went before it. Personally, I'm a fan of the original Jackhammer slot, but this game uses a much better theme and provides a unique game experience – if they were to continually recycle the original material then it wouldn't be much fun would it.
The original version of the game had 25 pay lines whereas this has been upped to 99 pay lines with three rows and 15 reels for this edition and the RTP (return to player) is set at a giddy 97.1% so be prepared for some extended play. Sticky wins are retained so that you can get additional winning symbols to increase the win.
In this version of the game, we are off to Grand City where the crime-fighting private eye “Jackhammer” goes up against his arch-rival villain “Don Crabby” who is claw-handed and your job is to rescue the Dame from his evil clutches.
The game opens with a short animation that introduces the characters that are going to appear on the reels. You'll probably watch the opening intro once and once only although you might want to listen to the music again because it's quite catchy!
The comic book style is faithfully adhered to in this edition, and when you get to the game, you'll see the city lights in the silhouetted blue background. The graphics in this game are fantastic and vividly and brightly coloured.
The soundtrack lulls you into believing you are sitting right by the docks with the sound of seagulls in the faint distance. Look out for the big band that plays when you hit a big winning combination. Don Crabby and his Goons are coming to get you!
Your hero Jack Hammer is the wild symbol, and he appears on the reels in two guises, either smiling or grimacing and the wilds substitute for all symbols except free spins.
I love the sticky wins feature which shows up every time you get a winning combination. Your winning symbols get frozen and as long as more show up the sticky wins will keep freezing your symbols. It is a treat to watch.
Free Spin Feature
The Electric Eel is the free spin feature, and it works just like a scatter. 5 Eels will get you ten free spins, but the sticky wins feature can also work on the free spins, so you'll be catching a lot of fish on your reels.
This game has smooth gameplay and eye-catching graphics. The swing theme and the big band all add to the atmosphere retaking you to the fifties.
It's not progressive, and there is no jackpot, so you are not going to see a life-changing amount of money suddenly flash before your eyes, but it is a fun game to play peppered with consistent small wins and the odd 20x stake.
