A train load of gold and outlaw Mystery Jack, in a classic western adventure from Wazdan
Mystery Jack is a Wild West themed video slot from Wazdan, available at EnergyCasino. The plot sees you on a train that is transporting the captured outlaw Mystery Jack and a hauling a cargo gold – what can possibly go wrong? With a simple, 3-reel, 3-row format and 27-paylines, Mystery Jack is very much inspired by classic land-based slots, and will appeal to gamers looking for some nostalgic old school action.
The gameplay console in Mystery Jack is straightforward and easy to use, with the usual glowing green ‘spin’ button at the lower centre, ‘autoplay’ and ‘max bet’ buttons either side, and a bet amount control to the right. If you scroll the mouse wheel, or press ‘PgUp’ on your keyboard, you can see the ‘top’ of the machine, with symbol information. At the lower left of the screen, you can access detailed game information, paytables, game settings and audio controls. Minimum bet per line is 0.10, and maximum is 10.00, making a max bet of 100 possible.
The background for Mystery Jack is an Arizonan desert scene, complete with arid mesas and saguaro cactuses. An old American steam locomotive is hurtling along the railroad tracks, aiming right for you. The blue sky has animated sun rays and clouds, and the desert floor features animated dust – all making for a convincing and light hearted southwestern desert atmosphere. The reels have white backgrounds, trimmed with rope.
Will Jack go wild, escape from the caboose and steal the treasure from the wagons?
In terms of special features, Mystery Jack features a Wild symbol– the bandana wearing, ginger haired Jack (worth 16 for 3) – that substitutes for all other symbols except for the Mystery and Free Games.
