Megaways Jack is a 6 reel slots game, with each reel varying in size. The number of Megaways available will depend entirely on the number of symbols that are used to make up each of the reels, something that changes every time you spin them. Each reel can contain up to 7 symbols, which means that the number of winways available will change randomly with each and every spin. If the maximum number of symbols are present on the reels then there are 117649 Megaways in total.
Tumbles – You form wins in Megaways Jack when you land matching symbols of 3 or more across adjacent reels. This means that there are no paylines and the most you can land in a combination is 6, as there are only 6 reels. Each time you land a winning combination, the symbols involved will disappear off the reels and will then be replaced by new symbols after the remaining ones have dropped down into the missing places, essentially providing you with a respin.
Beanstalk – Each tumble will move you one leaf up the beanstalk, with a total of 8 leaves needed to trigger the Free Spins.
– The theme for this slot is fairy tales, with a specific focus on Jack and the Beanstalk. As such, the beanstalk plays an important part in the game, allowing you to trigger the Free Spins. You have Magic Beans symbols, a cow and other important elements taken from the story.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Golden Egg”, which will substitute for all paying symbols, automatically doing so for the highest paying option. Wilds will only appear on reels 2-6.
Magic Beans – Magic Beans can only appear in the base game and only during tumbles. 1-3 of them can land at once and they can help contribute to you moving up the beanstalk.
Magic Harp – The Magic Harp is a random feature that can only trigger following a win. It is more likely to trigger during the Free Spins. It can award the following:
Up to 4 additional Wilds
Up to a x5 Multiplier
Up to 3 positions on the Beanstalk
A single respin, during which the position on the beanstalk will be held
During the Free Spins the Magic Harp can award the following:
Up to 4 additional Wilds
Increase the Win Multiplier by up to 3
Up to 4 additional Free Spins
Free Spins – After you manage to light all 8 of the leaves on the beanstalk you will trigger 8 Free Spins. However there is a chance to that you can light up more than just 8 leaves, with 9 earning you 9 Free Spins, 10 earning you 10 Free Spins with a x2 multiplier, 11 earning 11 Free Spins with a x2 multiplier , 12 earning you 12 Free Spins with a x3 multiplier and 13 earning you 12 Free Spins with a x2 multiplier and more chance of trigger the Magic Harp feature. During the feature, once you have landed a set of 7 symbols on one reel, that reel will remain that size for the duration of the spins. When this happens a multiplier will be added to your wins, which will increase by one with every subsequent locked reel. On the last spin locking reels will award 1 additional spin, that can re-trigger if it happens again. If you land 4 tumbles in a row you will earn 2 additional Free Spins.
Pay to Play – This slot also comes with a Pay to Play option that allows you to play the Free Spins feature without waiting for it to trigger. There are different options available, with the highest number of Free Spins with the best multiplier costing you 240x the bet.
