Can you think of a more Australian name than Jackaroo Jack?

Okay, maybe Outback Jack, but that’s about it.

Their Stellar Jackpot games are very popular, and they occasionally manage to come up with other fun slots.

How well does Jackaroo Jack stand its ground among all the online slot competition? We will show you.

Jackaroo Jack gameplay and features

We see the backyard of our friend Jackaroo Jack, the scorching hot Australian Outback in the background.

Jackaroo Jack has 5 reels with 4 rows of symbols. There are no paylines on this slot: the win all ways mechanism is active. In other words, it doesn’t matter where on the reels the symbols fall, as long as they appear on consecutive reels from left to right.

There are a total of 1,024 ways to win.

Betting is done from $€ 0.40 per spin, which rises to a maximum of $€ 12  per spin.

The theoretical payout rate is 95.62%: not very good, nor terrible, but the middle of the road.

Symbols and payouts

The wild symbol replaces all symbols, including the scatters. It can also activate the free spins bonus. That is good news. The bad news is that the wilds only occur on the 2nd and 4th reel: a reasonably small chance.

The 4 premium symbols are a wild bull, a wild horse, a windmill and a kookaburra bird. The kookaburra is a guess because it is a typical Australian bird and we are slots/casino reviewers, not birdwatchers.

Spin 5 of the same premium symbols and you win between 100 and 200 coins.

The card symbols J, Q, K and A yield between 50 and 80 coins to a 5-of-a-kind.

2nd Chance Respin

If the wild symbol falls on the 2nd and/or 4th reel and there is no prize, the wild stays, and you get a free second chance to win a prize.

Free spins bonus

6 or more scattered wilds and/or Jackaroo Jack symbols activate the free spins bonus.

You now see a menu with different options, each with their specific risk profile.

Choose from 5 different combinations of free spins and wild multipliers:

  • 20 free spins with multipliers of 2 x and 2 x (maximum multipliers: 4 x)
  • 15 free spins with multipliers of 2 x and 4 x (maximum multiplier: 8 x)
  • 12 free spins with multipliers of 3 x and 4 x (maximum multipliers: 12 x)
  • 10 free spins with multipliers of 4 x and 6 x (maximum multipliers: 24 x)
  • 6 free spins with multipliers of 5 x and 8 x (maximum multipliers: 40 x)

The higher the maximum possible multiplier, the less free spins you get.

Our verdict on the Jackaroo Jack slot

Jackaroo Jack is a fun, but not very jaw-dropping video slot from Lightning Box.

This slot only really comes to life when the free spins bonus feature gets activated, and you can select your combination of multipliers. Then stimulating possibilities open up to bring home some

Although this slot pretty well captures the Australian Outback theme, we can’t get very excited about it.

3 out of 5 stars.
