Jackaroo Jack is one more Australian themed slot machine which comes from Lightning Box, a developer which is based there. They’ve launched other slots as well for Australia, such as Redroo, where the hero was a kangaroo. In this case though, we’re looking at an Australian adventurer and at a variety of creatures from the region.
The layout is a modern one, delivering 1024 ways to win and just as many chances for winning combinations, all on 5x4 reels. You have some impressive payouts to look forward to, of up to 8,000 coins, thanks to up to 40x multipliers delivered by wilds during free spins. RTP wise, the slot delivers only 95.62% back to the players.
Betting and Prizes
40 coins make up the wager each single round, that being the part which can’t be changed. You may only modify the denomination of the coin, and only within a small range of $0.01 to $0.30. This will give you a wager of $0.40 to $12 which you can place each round.
A regular winning combo will pay at most 5x the stake, which can still mean quite a bit in the base game, since you have so many ways to win. Things change for the better once the free spins trigger, as certain versions of the feature get up to 40x combined wild multipliers. At that point, a single combination would offer 8,000 coins, or 200x the stake. The potential of the game appears to be huge, but we don’t know if there are any limits placed by the developer on how much it can pay.
Moving on to the Return to Player, it’s set to 95.62%, which is not a lot. It’s also described as a slot with Low to Medium volatility.
Jackaroo Jack Slot Features
A major symbol in the game will be the one sporting the cow skull, with the Wild logo underneath. It’s going to be the substitute, and it will be available only on the 2nd and 4th reels. Jackaroo Jack is the only one that can use it as a substitute, but all the regular symbols do have that chance.
If you get a wild symbol, but there is no win, then a 2nd Chance Respin will be offered. The wilds get locked for that respin.
The symbols with the Man, representing the Jack character, are all marked as Bonus icons. These appear scattered, and they trigger the free games whenever they’re visible in at least six positions. Should they appear on consecutive reels, they also offer a decent sized payout of up to 7.5x the stake.
Once you trigger the free spins, you have a choice for the number of rounds and for the values given to the wild multipliers. These multipliers can be combined if you get both the one from the 2nd and the 4th reels. The options give you 20 free spins (2x and 2x wilds), 15 spins (2x and 4x wilds), 12 spins (3x and 4x), 10 spins (4x and 6x) or 6 free spins (5x and 8x wild multipliers). That last option can bring you wild multipliers of up to 40x, if both are present in a single round.
Theme & Design
The theme is Australian related and with a focus on a man that’s living there. Images of bulls, horses, wind mills and birds are also available for the better symbols, while lower ones get the Royals. I’d call this an average design, there isn’t anything truly special here.
Enjoy Jackaroo Jack and its Australian inspired theme, and make sure you do your best to trigger those 40x wild multipliers, they could make a big difference.
