Jack is back, with more wild west slot spinning fun from Wazdan
Everyone’s favourite ginger haired cowboy is back, in Mega Jack from Wazdan – available to play at EnergyCasino. A bright, western themed 3-reel, 3-row slot with 27 paylines, Mega Jack is a firm favourite of players looking for slot fun with a land-based feel.
Mega Jack features Wazdan’s usual clear, easy-to-use game interface, with a glowing green ‘spin’ button in the lower middle, ‘autoplay’ and ‘max bet’ buttons either side, and the bet amount control to the right. Minimum bet is 0.10 and maximum is 10.00, making for a slot that suits players with any size budget. Again, as with many Wazdan games, scrolling your mouse wheel up, or pressing the ‘PgUp’ button, will allow you to view the ‘top’ of the ‘machine’, with bright graphics showing game information. More detailed game information, as well as audio controls and game settings, can be accessed via the small buttons at the lower left of the screen.
The reels in Mega Jack feature traditional fruit machine symbols, and some wild west style variations. The Wild, outlaw Jack himself, substitutes for all other symbols, and is worth 16 for 3. Other symbols include an angry red bull (worth 8 for 3), a bar sign (worth 4 for 3), a sheriff’s badge (worth 0.80 for 3), a red ‘7’ (worth 0.80 for 3), a bell (worth 0.40 for 3), a melon (worth 0.40 for 3), grapes (worth 0.40 for 3), a raspberry (worth 0.20 for 3), a strawberry (worth 0.20 for 3), a plum (worth 0.20 for 3), an orange (worth 0.10 for 3), a lemon (worth 0.10 for 3), and cherries (worth 0.10 for 3). If you get a wall of the same symbol, you will multiply your win x3.
Traditional fruits with a western twist, in a classic old school style slot
Graphically, Mega Jack is designed to take players back to land-based arcade slot machines. There is a blazing sun in an orange sky, which is animated to look like the backlit slots of days gone, cartoon style saguaro cactuses, and a wooden fence. The reels have a plain white background, and are trimmed with a rope pattern, and Jack and a red bull are peeking out over the top of reels 1 and 3. The symbols themselves are bright, simple, and 2D, again obviously inspired by old school slot machines.
In terms of audio, Mega Jack has an interesting background track that sounds like cowboys at a rodeo, complete with an opening and closing gate. The reels make a retro land-based electronic sound, with nice clunks as they stop spinning. Both the sound effects and background track can be adjusted and muted individually.
Mega Jack is altogether a very entertaining and polished video slot, with good production values, that successfully infuses a retro land-based feel into an online game. With good winning potential, thanks to its 27 paylines, nice graphics and ease of play, it is great for both the casual gamer looking to fill a few minutes, and the more serious player in pursuit of big wins through longer sessions. Mega Jack will appeal to any Wazdan fan, and looks set to remain a favourite at EnergyCasino.
