Jack Hammer 2
Jack Hammer 2 from NetEnt
If you’ve read our review of the first Jack Hammer slot then you’ll undoubtedly have noticed that it happens to be one of our favourite games – not to mention one of the most popular NetEnt releases of all time. When a slots developer is onto a good thing, they usually try to capitalise on that success and that’s the case here as our detective returns for a second issue, this time tackling some Fishy Business.
With the first game having been so good, the first question may well be what the developer has done to make things even better. That will strike players as soon as they come to place their bets as the number of win lines, which previously weighed in at 25, has been bumped all the way up to 99 and that’s huge by any standard. Throw in the wild card that is covered in bullet holes and you’ve got every chance of making up a big win without even entering the free spins bonus round!
The sticky wins which were an integral part of the first game return here and the concept remains the same. Whenever a combination lands on the board, a free respin is awarded, giving players the chance to win again or even improve the original prize. When the wins continue, the respins do too and you’ll really notice the difference between making use of this feature on 99 line as opposed to 25.
Free Games on Jack Hammer 2
The features haven’t actually changed all that much as the other bonus to be on the lookout for is a free spins round. Like before, you’ll be looking to make use of the respins to land as many electric eel free spin symbols as possible, with five or more triggering the feature. A slight tweak to this particular bonus comes in the form of a multiplier, plus a random wild. Every prize is worth twice as much as it would be within the base game and a wild card is assigned to one symbol area before every single free game.
If we were being cynical, we might well say that Jack Hammer 2 is basically the first game with more lines. However, the visuals are crisper and a few extras in the free spins round really set it part. The choice generally comes down to the fact that this one obviously costs a little more to play due to covering more lines. However, that’s almost certainly worth it if it fits your gaming budget. Why not try both? They’re completely free to play here at Games Mania and you’ll also find both games ready to go for real cash and bonuses at the top notch casino brands featured on the right hand side of this page.
