Jack Hammer 2 Slots

Most Popular Slots in NJ

Do you remember the film noir classics where the bad gangster abducts a beautiful singer, only for the downtrodden detective to save the day?

Well, this is the simple premise for Jack Hammer 2, one of the most unusual, and certainly enjoyable, New Jersey online slots you’ve played in years.

NetEnt has packed this slot with a host of features, some of which are rarely seen, as it’s packaged the whole thing to look like a 1930s comic book. The result is extremely easy on the eyes, but the big question is, does the slot play as handsomely as it looks?

Let’s take a closer peek and find out.

Overview: Jack Hammer 2

Jack Hammer 2, which is available to play at Golden Nugget online, is unashamedly leaning on its comic book look, and it’s a treat.

From the graphics, down to how the reels are presented, through to how the story behind the game resolves itself when you get to the bonus rounds, everything is highly stylized. It looks superb and gives the slot a whole new dimension.

The reels are on a 5×3 matrix and there are a number of different symbols which tell aspects of the story, as well as the usual wild and scatter symbols. However, what separates this slot is the Sticky Win feature, which we’ll examine in more detail later.

There are a total of 99 different paylines in operation on every spin.

The jackpot is a huge 990,000 coins, which means that this is a game that big money hunters will certainly play. And from $0.50 to $50 per spin, it isn’t going to eat huge chunks out of your bankroll if you play at the right level for you.

Who will Jack Hammer 2 slot appeal to?

I believe that Jack Hammer 2 is one of those somewhat rare slots, like a Thunderstruck II or an Avalon, that will have universal appeal. Sure, fans of cartoon-style slots and big jackpot games will love the slot, but there is so much else in this game that almost any player would like.

Jack Hammer 2 has the uncommon mix of presentation, features, and value for money. In short, this is a slot that you’ll be happy to put on autoplay for 99 free spins, sit back and then enjoy them as the auto spin plays out.

Gameplay: Jack Hammer 2

Jack Hammer 2 Golden Nugget NJThe one disappointing thing about the presentation of the slot is found when you first begin to play: silence.

There’s no background music, and while sound effects kick in and music plays when you land certain features and bonuses, the silence in the base game is somewhat stark in contrast.

At first when you hit a base game win, you’ll be disappointed at how little it is, but then the Sticky Win feature kicks in.

While sometimes, the feature doesn’t add any cash to your win, on regular occasions you can build more and more winning paylines with every subsequent spin of the reels.

You add winning symbols to those already accumulated. They “stick.”

The wild symbol and free spins symbol also add levels to the game, with the wild appearing regularly, especially during Sticky Win spins. They add value to your win and the frees pins symbol appears across all reels.

You need to land five or more to trigger the scatters, but the fact that these symbols are held in place during Sticky Wins and can accumulate on subsequent spins makes that less of an issue.

The bonus features can be triggered relatively frequently and can result in a mix of wins. Some are low, but a fair amount are mid-range, and occasionally you can trigger some big wins, both in the base game and free spins.

Special features: Jack Hammer 2

Sticky Win

If you land a winning bet line or three or more free spins symbols, then Sticky Win is activated. This holds all winning symbols and respins all the other non-winning symbols.

If you create more winning lines on the next spin, the feature holds and another respin takes place. The feature stops when there are no additional winning lines to the previous spin. This is a great feature and allows you to build bigger wins from small initial wins.

Wild

The red wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the free spin feature, which helps create winning paylines. It can be used to continue the Sticky Win feature.

Free spins

The Electric Eel free spins feature can appear on any reel in any position. You must land five or more on a single spin to trigger between 10 and 20 free spins.

All wins during the free spins round are subject to a 2x multiplier. During free spins, random wild symbols will appear and substitute for all symbols apart from the usual wild and the free spin symbol.

What works?

Comic book presentation

The Jack Hammer 2 slot is presented in the style of a comic book, and it’s brilliant. It allows the player to get away from thinking of the slot as five reels, but as 15 individual symbols.

This feature makes the Jack Hammer 2 slot not only look great, but it plays well too.

Sticky Win

The Sticky Win feature is triggered often and it can prove to be a big earner for players who can keep growing winning paylines. Of course, how much you win does depend on your initial bet, but occasionally, this feature can lead to decent-sized wins in the base game and that is never a bad thing.

990,000-coin jackpot

Land the right combinations during free spins and you can win up to a massive 990,000-coin jackpot. That is a life-changing amount of money at whatever level you play the game, and it certainly helps attract New Jersey online casino players to give the slot a try.

What doesn’t?

Sound

NJ online slots reviews Jack Hammer 2I was disappointed with the sound in Jack Hammer 2. Yes, there are sound effects in the game, but given its film noir feel, I’d expect a slow-jazz soundtrack to accompany it.

Instead, there is just silence. That does tend to detract a little from the atmosphere of the game, which is meant to be about the kidnapping of a famous singer.

Low top bet limit

You can play Jack Hammer 2 from just $0.50 per spin up to $50 per spin, which makes this a great value slot for the low- to medium-stakes player.

But those who prefer to spin for above $50 won’t find an awful lot to keep them here, other than that big jackpot.

Low base game wins

The reason the Sticky Win feature is so vital to the slot is because most base game wins are generally low and won’t cover your bet. So if your Sticky Wins don’t pan out, then you’ll find that a winning spin still ends up costing you cash.

The scores

[wp-review id=”5100″]

Graphics and soundtrack 3.5/5

If only the base game had a little additional music to keep things going. The graphics, presentation, and music in other areas of this slot are top notch, but playing the base game in silence is somewhat disappointing.

Originality and creativity 5/5

From the presentation, down to the Sticky Win feature and the use of wilds and free spins symbols, everything about the Jack Hammer 2 slot is innovative, fresh, and enjoyable. It’s one of the most imaginative slots I’ve played in many years.

Play value 4/5

I’ve deducted a mark for the initially low base game wins, but hit free spins or get lucky with the Sticky Win feature and you can find yourself winning a decent amount of cash relatively frequently.

Jackpot potential 5/5

With the chance to win up to 990,000 coins, that is one jackpot well worth chasing.

Repeat play 5/5

Absolutely, this is one slot that you will load up time and time again to enjoy.

Total score 22.5/25

Jack Hammer 2 is an absolutely fantastic and creative slot, packed with clever features, bonuses, and it rewards the player in exactly the right way. Slightly larger base game wins would have made this almost perfect.
