Jack Hammer 2 : Fishy Business Slot
He's back! NetEnt follow up their 2011 original slot smash 'Jack Hammer' – or 'Jack Hammer Vs. Evil Dr. Wüten' to give the slot its full title – with a sequel, Jack Hammer 2 : Fishy Business. This latest release is a 5-reel, fixed 99-pay line video slot. Jack Hammer is the slots world's favourite private eye who lives in an odd, cartoon world. This game begins with an intro in which Jack is honoured for his successful exploits in the original slot. A beautiful singer named Pearl is nabbed by the crab-clawed underworld boss Don Crabby, and it's up to Jack to defeat Don's fishy-themed henchmen and save both the girl, and the day. Again.
To start Jack's adventure, you need to select your coin size from 0.01 to 0.50, and your bet level from one to ten. Your final wager is these two values multiplied together and multiplied by fifty to cover all 99 bet lines. All 99 pay lines are in play at all times. There are lots of possible pay outs, and to grab yourself one you simply need to land three identical symbols in sequence from the left-hand reel.
Payout & bonus rounds
One much-loved feature of the original Jack Hammer slot was the 'sticky wins' aspect, and this feature returns in the sequel. Any winning combination is held as a free re-spin is triggered, hopefully triggering more wins. You keep re-spinning with sticky wilds until no more wins appear.
Prize payouts start at 2x your bet-per-line for three microphone or machine gun case symbols, up to 500x for five of Jack himself.
The wild symbol in this game is simply the word 'WILD!' in a 1960s Batman-type style. It substitutes for all other symbols aside from the free spins symbol.
An electric eel acts as a free spins bonus symbol. You need to land at least five bonus symbols in order to trigger free spins. Five symbols lands you ten free spins, six lands you 13, seven 16 and eight or more the maximum of 20. During free spins all prizes are doubled and two extra wild symbols appear on the reels.
Jack Hammer 2 matches the fun of the original in every way. This NetEnt game is not the most complex slot you will ever play, but the main attraction (aside from Pearl) is that 'sticky wins' feature which can lead to a series of super wins. The comic book graphics are great too and grant this online slot a really entertaining vibe. Why not take Jack Hammer 2 : Fishy Business for a spin and see if you can hammer out a few sticky wins?
