When you think of the word “comic book”, I’m sure that the first thing that comes in your mind is a superhero. Be it Batman, Superman, Spider-Man or Wolverine (or Kate Bishop, if you’re weird like me), it’s more than likely that someone with extraordinary powers and a strange and often completely impractical costume is adorning the cover of the imaginary comic book in your head. But what if I told you that it wasn’t always superheroes who dominated the comic book genre? In fact, there was a period of time in which superheroes were completely non-existant in the world of comics, replaced instead by horror comics and pulp fiction (yep – the movie by Quentin Tarantino is at least partially inspired by crime comics). In particular, hard-boiled detectives fighting ridiculous bad guys, like Dick Tracy, dominated the comic strips in the 30s, 40s and 50s right up until the Silver Age and the Cold War made superheroes popular again. And while these non-powered comic book heroes of the past are all forgotten, it’s good to see that they’re still being honoured today… Even if it’s in a slot!

Bonus Features

Sticky Win

As with many Net Ent slots, the main bonus feature is all part of the basic game and in this case it’s the Sticky Win; what this means is that each time you land a winning combination or three of more free spin symbols you’ll activate it.  Your winning symbols will remain in place and you’ll get free re-spins as long as you keep making winning combos.  When you no longer spin another win the total prize is calculated.

Free Spins

The good news is that there’s also a free spins round and you can win a lot by landing quite a large number of the free spin symbols as follows:

  • Five – 10 free spins
  • Six – 15 free spins
  • Seven – 20 free spins
  • Eight – 25 free spins
  • Nine to Fifteen – 30 free spins

The obvious way to collect the larger number of symbols is to have the Sticky Wins feature activated by free spins symbols – more will be added as the round continues, earning you the higher numbers. Check the video below to see the free spins round in action.

The Jack Hammer jackpot

The total non-progressive jackpot on offer in Jack Hammer is 250,000 coins, which if the player has the maximum wager staked, can see them pocket way more than the equivalent in real money. This How much more? Well in fact, in Pounds Sterling, up to £10,000 can be won with this slot.

Jack Hammer slot review – The main story behind the game is Jack Hammer, attempting to stop the evil Dr. Wüten from taking over the city, or destroying it. It is set in the early to mid-twentieth century, perhaps the 1920’s, and is told through a comic book strip-style slot game.

Jack Hammer has a house edge of roughly 3%, and with the plenty of special features and free spins opportunities that the slot presents, there are many ways to win.

Graphically, it is one of the best looking comic book themed slots around. The menu bar is typically Net Ent. The gameplay style – such as the inability to alter the number of paylines used by the player – is a little bit un-cool, but ultimately, most gamers almost always use all of the available paylines when playing slot machine games anyway, so it’s no biggie.

Gamers would be advised to play the original Jack Hammer slot machine game, before they delve into the deep end with the sequel, which is more advanced and complex than this first release. All in all, with everything considered, Jack Hammer is a decent slot machine game, with a fair jackpot, okay wagering limits, and a very, very nice looking layout.
