Jack Hammer 2 Slot Review

Jack Hammer 2, or as it is known by its full name: Jack Hammer 2 – Fishy Business is the sequel to the popular gangster underworld-theme Jack Hammer slot from Scandinavian online casino software provider, Net Entertainment. Imagine a superhero (though not your conventional one) who fits and batters criminals of the underworld in a bid to save the world from a deadly enemy (Electric Eel) and you’ve got the theme of this slot cracked.

Look & Feel

This slot machine – just like its predecessor – features cartoony, comic-book style graphics. Let’s face it, these sorts of symbols work best with superhero slots. Action text, fight sequence symbols and a simplistic but realistic early Twentieth Century look and feel add grime and excitement to the Jack Hammer 2 slot.

Although there are 5 reels, the symbols on each reel (3 per reel) can all act individually during a sticky wins feature, which we will come to in just a moment. Upon those 5 reels sit 99 paylines, all of which are fixed into place. Players can adjust both the coin values which feature in the game, as well as the number of coins they stake per line, though, giving Jack Hammer 2 a wagering range that flexes from 50p per spin up to £250 per game.

The main wild in the game appears as a piece of action text, common in comic books. With “wild” written across it, it is impossible to miss. This symbol can substitute for all standard paying icons but cannot replace the Electric Eel scatters.

Bonus Features

Sticky Wins Bonus: Following any winning combination on the reels, the symbol which starred in the win will become frozen, and all the other reels (and individual symbols on those reels) will spin independently. Any further winning symbols will also be held in place, whilst the reels spin again. This happens time and time again until no new winning symbols crop and allows players to potentially steadily build up winning icons from the leftmost reel to the rightmost over several re-spins if they’re lucky.

Free Spin Bonus: Pocketing 5, 6, 7 or 8 (or more) Electric Eel scatter icons on the reels will trigger a total of 10, 13, 16 or 20 free spins in this bonus. During the feature, any winnings you happen to pocket will be doubled, and random wilds can show up on each spin. The Sticky Wins Bonus is also in session during this feature (with frozen wilds) so you get excellent value for money whenever the feature is triggered.

Jack Hammer 2 RTP:

Jack Hammer 2 has an industry standard RTP (return to player) rate. That rate is fixed at 95%. Whenever you bag wins in this game, they tend to be special, and they seldom tend to be alone. Top prizes worth 500x your total bet can be won in this game.

Verdict:

Despite its age, the Jack Hammer 2 slot is still one of the most popular NetEnt slots around, and can commonly be found amongst the most played titles and in “hot games” sections of most casinos.
