Spin the reels to save the world! Enter the retro noir world of crime-fighting private eye Jack Hammer as he tries to stop the Evil Dr. Wüten from poisoning the population of Grand City. If you love comic books or if you just love to have fun, you’ll revel in NetEnt’s beautifully crafted adaptation of the classic hard-boiled detective comic.
The layout is simple: 3 rows, 25 fixed paylines and 15 reels. The symbols are straight from the original 1920s comic book, when gangsters ran liquor not casinos. Vegas casinos had yet to be built ... The Bet Level ranges from 1 to 10 and the Coin Value from 0.01 to 1.00. Minimum bet is 0.25 with a Bet Level of 1 and a Coin Value of 0.01. “Max Bet” is 250 per spin.
“Trying to play me for a sucker, pal? I see only five reels and three rows. How can you say there’s 15 reels, huh?” Well, what’s unique about Jack Hammer is that each symbol spins independently, so you get 15 symbols from 5 reels and 3 rows! Not bad, huh? Fifteen comic-book drawings all spinning at once... A glass vial of poison held up by an anonymous hand... A sinister ringing telephone held up by another...The Evil Dr Wüten’s blimp floats through the sky... A man shoots a gun from the window of a black car... “Mad Doctor THREATENS Grand City” shouts a headline held by two anonymous hands...Four higher-value character symbols include Jack Hammer, his nemesis the Evil Dr. Wüten clutching his poison, a desperate damsel about to be captured by the arch-villain, and a paper boy holding up the latest news. Get the picture? This Vegas casino game fires with both barrels!
One reason Jack Hammer is a star in international online casino gaming solutions provider NetEnt’s catalogue is a bunch of special features that punch up the fun. Every time you line up a winning bet or have three or more Free Spins, the “Sticky Win” feature kicks in – the reels with the winning symbols stick in position while the others spin again and re-spin until no more new wins are formed. When the new wins stop, you get your payout.
A massive explosion with “WILD!!” on top of it represents the wild symbol and can stand in for another other symbol on the reels apart from Free Spin. Once five or more of these ticking time bombs land on the reels, the bonus feature kicks in and the free-spins begin – 10 for 5 bombs, up to 15 for 6, 20 for 7, and 25 for 8, while 9 to 15 bombs will bag you the maximum of 30 free spins. You don’t have to wager on free spins so when the bomb starts ticking, your heart should start beating at the prospect of big wins!
All in all, Jack Hammer is a whole new dimension in online casino entertainment. The control panel is clean, the labels are clear, and you can even adjust the sound level with a slide control. With NetEnt’s Advanced Autoplay feature, you can play anything from 10 to 1000 spins automatically, stopping either at a pre-programmed level of wins or losses or when Free Spins begin.
Unsurprisingly for a NetEnt game, Jack Hammer is fully compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android operating systems. As for display, the simple but stylish graphics will render beautifully on the device of your choice, whether it’s a laptop or desktop computer, or an iPhone or Android device for mobile casino gaming.
