Jack Hammer vs. Evil Dr. Wuten is a 15 reel, 3-row, 25 payline video slots by Net Entertainment software. It’s based on the highly acclaimed Marvel comic book detective Jack Hammer-guaranteed to bring out the sleuth in you. It features a wild symbol, scatters, free spins, sticky wilds and a non-progressive jackpot win of $10,000.
What impressed me about the slots is that it’s got that comic book feel and look. Your aim in this slots is to ensure that justice prevails by apprehending the evil Dr. Wuten. Characters that feature across the reels are detective Jack Hammer, Dr. Wuten, Ringing Phone, Evil Zeppelin, Chemical Beaker, News Paper Boy and Car Chase.
Jack Hammer offers a fixed jackpot payout of 250,000 coins. To win it you must land 5 Jack Hammer symbols on adjacent reels. The Sticky Wild feature is activated by 3 or more Free Spin symbols. What makes this feature so unique? It allows you even bigger wins when the reels containing winning symbols are held in place whilst the other reels re-spin.
Jack Hammer vs. Evil Dr. Wuten comes with 10 bet levels, an Auto Play, Max Bet and Coin Value. The coin value starts off with $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20 and $0.50. When you click on the Auto feature a little screen pops up indicating the amount of times you’d like to spin the reels automatically (10, 25, 50 75 or 100 times).
The minimum amount that can be wagered is $0.25 and the max amount is $125. Bet line wins in coins is the same as the value indicated in the paytable multiplied by the bet level. This amount is also multiplied by any applicable multipliers.
The Free Spins are triggered when 5 or more Free Spin symbols appear anywhere across the reels. The amount of free spins that can be won depends on the paytable. Whilst the free spins are in motion additional free spins can be won. The free spins are tripled, however, additional free spins are excluded. Please keep in mind, if you win additional free spins they are not multiplied by the Free Spins multiplier.
The Bomb is the scatter symbol it triggers the ‘real’ free spins. If you land 5 to 8 scatters you’ll win 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins. If you land 9 to 15 Bombs on an active payline you will receive a whopping 30 free spins. The good news is that your wins will be tripled allowing you to win additional free spins.
The wild is the ‘pow’ style icon. It replaces all the other symbols except the scatters. Of the three features it is the simplest yet the most lucrative especially if it is used with the sticky wins feature.
In summary. The feature that carries the day, for me at least is Jack Hammer’s ‘sticky wins’. The moment a winning combination is in motion the reels re-spin whilst the winning combination remains in place. NetEnt’s innovative 15 reels enables you to hold the reels individually or you can spin them to create extra wins.
The game will appeal to high-staked players and to those with smaller bankrolls. Expect regular wins in between albeit small. Jack Hammer video slots offers a return of 97% to the player. In other words it offers 3% to the house which is not bad at all.[addtoany]
