If the gritty and glamorous crime underworld, and the life of the 1930’s private eye is one of your favourite genre’s, then Jack Hammer vs. The Evil Dr. Wuton could be a great game to play. The even better news is that Net Entertainment have brought out a Jack Hammer 2, too. Obviously this fifteen-reel, twenty-five pay-line video slot game is proving to be popular, or there would have been no episode 2. Net Entertainment have certainly changed the face of video slots with the design of this game.
It is a non-progressive prize slot that plays like a comic book reads, but who needs a progressive prize when there are 250 000 coins as the top jackpot prize? A bet range of 0.01 to $/£/€250 per spin keeps it real for both low and high rollers.
There are tons of killer features in this game that is designed to keep players entertained as well as winning. Perhaps the best feature of all is the “Sticky Wins”, don’t ask how feature this works, it works, we have just played the game. We could also only alter the coin value - apparently this is due to the sticky wins feature.
The theme is in the Dick Tracy mould - Jack Hammer is a Private Detective, and is also something of a super hero, although in more human form. Dr. Wuton wants to destroy the city, and this crime fighter is in a race against time to try and stop his arch-nemesis’ plans for global domination. Symbols include Jack Hammer, Dr. Wuton, A lady on the phone who is obviously in trouble, newspaper headlines, a newspaper boy obviously shouting “read all about it”, chemistry flasks containing mysterious liquids, dirigibles, old-fashioned telephones ringing off the hook, bombs (award free spins) and so on. The “Wild” icon is wild, and there are free spins as well as bonus multipliers given away.
The objective of this video slot is to land as many sticky wins as you can. This fun and highly lucrative feature keeps spinning for every three winning symbols. The winning icons stick to the screen and make up more winning combinations as the free spins progress.
There are two bonus features on this video slot – one we have already spoken about which features the sticky wins, and the other which is activated when 5 and 15 of the ‘Bomb’ free spin icon lands anywhere on the reels. If this takes place between 10 and 30 free spins are given away, but this amount depends on how many ‘Bomb’ free spin icons are landed.
