NET ENT have created an absolutely brilliant pokies/slots game – Jack Hammer – and we’re pleased to announce that it can now be played with bitcoins at bitcasino.
It’s highly enjoyable and provides an exciting “Sticky Win” feature which comes up every time a winning pay line is rolled and can convert a modest win into a really big score! Furthermore, the Sticky Win applies to free spin feature symbols, meaning you will hit the free spin feature and have a reasonably good chance of rolling up more than the minimum number of free spin symbols, netting more than the standard 10 free spins.
Better still – the game provides a really good mix high-winning and low-winning symbols, with wilds regularly helping things along. There is no bonus round, but this game proves that it isn’t necessary. The fantastic sticky-win aspect is a real winner with players, evidenced by its 5-star rating from regulars.
The general theme of the game is playful good-vs-evil comic book adventure with a strong film noir flavour (1940s-1950s crime mystery).
Interface and Layout
The layout of the reel is the standard 3 x 5. Buttons and display panels are neatly arranged, without being cluttered. The instructions are straightforward and you need roll a few winning spins to follow how the Sticky Win feature works.
Hats off to simplicity. This game generates excitement without transporting users to highly interactive bonus games and sticks to basics in terms of presentation. Excellent sharp contrasts and colour variations make it super easy to follow your favourite winning symbols.
Game play is smooth and paced perfectly. The pay lines are relatively standard and the number is higher, giving you more opportunities to win with every spin.
Why we like it
We are completely sold on the Stick Win feature of this game. Every time you start with a winning combination, the game holds those winning symbols in place and spins the non-winning reels around them. If you catch another winning combo or enhance an existing one, that symbol is also locked in space and you spin again.
This continues free until no additional winning combos are created. Below, we started with three matching potion bottles on a pay line. After three Sticky Win spins, it built up to five (including 5-of-a-kind) and still continued spinning for more winners.
Free spin feature
What we didn’t like
The bonus and free spin symbols seem to cause more pain than joy. Because both have reel requirements (1,3,5 for bonus, 2,3,4 for free spin), they have a habit of breaking a lot of winning pay lines, especially because they regularly make an appearance in their respective reels. Furthermore, hitting the free spin feature was rare, though the bonus round seemed to come up regularly.
