Megaways Jack slot review (Iron Dog Studio)


We liked Pirate Kingdom Megaways so much; we even decided it was our favourite online slot of 2019. So, we were very curious about Megaways Jack. Would it be just as good? Megaways Jack is based on the famous fairy tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. We know that the Netent & Red Tiger combo is hard at work, turning memorable Netent classics into Megaways slots.

Megaways Jack is the second Megaways slot by Iron Dog Studio, which has already made a name for themselves with Pirate Kingdom Megaways

They probably won’t be amused that Iron Dog Studio has released this slot before they can introduce their Jack and the Beanstalk Megaways slot to the public.

Anyway, as Frank Sinatra sang: “That’s life; that’s what it is.”

Megaways Jack gameplay and features

The Megaways Jack video slot has the classic Megaways setup of 6 reels with a maximum of 117,649 Megaways (to win).

Winning combinations disappear, after which new symbols take their place. This creates chain reactions, which can result in large payouts and activate the free spins bonus.

Betting starts at 20 cents per spin and runs up to $€ 20 per spin.

Big wins are possible with Megaways Jack, no matter what your wager is. The maximum win is 25,000 x the total bet, so even when you wager two dimes (2 x $€ 0.10), you can still make a cool $€ 5,000.

The volatility is high, as is the case with almost all Megaways slots.

If you don’t use the Buy a Bonus option, the theoretical payout rate is 96.2%. This is a very respectable RTP, but there are better paying Megaways slots.

If you buy the bonus round, the RTP drops slightly (96% – 96.1%). A bit odd: usually, you will be rewarded with a much higher RTP when you use the Buy a Bonus option.

Symbols payouts

There are three types of symbols: wilds (the golden eggs), premium symbols and low symbols.

The premium symbols consist of Jack (the highest paying symbol). The giant, the farmer’s wife, the cow and the goose. Spin a 6-of-a-kind, and you make between 2 x and 25 x the total bet.

Although the card symbols are not worth that much with six identical ones, they can still result in enormous profits.

The Harp Feature

On the left side of the reels, the golden harp plays a crucial role in the game.

As soon as you hear the harp playing, it means that you have landed an extra prize.

The harp is active both during the base game as well as during the free spins bonus.

You can win the following extra boosters:

  • Extra free spins (only during the free spins)
  • Up to 4 extra wilds
  • Up to 3 extra steps (only during the base game)
  • Securing a reel with 7 symbols
  • Additional multipliers
  • A re-spin

Free spins bonus

The free spins bonus can be activated in two ways.

The quickest way to play the free spins bonus is by shelling out some coin to acquire the Buy a Bonus feature. Depending on how many free spins (up to 12) you desire and whether or not you want to play with additional Harp features, the Buy A Bonus will cost you between 40 x and 240 x your bet.

You can also choose to earn the free spins the usual way. On the right side of the screen, you can see the famous beanstalk. Each winning combination brings you one step (a golden bean) closer to the free spins. Sometimes you get several magic beans as a gift so that you can take extra steps.

The higher you get on the beanstalk, the more free spins and the higher the start multiplier. If you get to the top step, you win 12 free spins, a 3x multiplier and lots of extra Harp features.

The Harp features can make or break you during the free spins. Especially the booster that is used to form sticky 7-symbol-high reels is extremely valuable.

Our verdict on Megaways Jack

With Megaways Jack video slot Iron Dog Studio, this small provider, has released yet another potential Megaways blockbuster.

We love the extra boosters you can grab during the free spins with the Harp feature. They provide extra excitement, even heftier profits and can often lead to surprising results.

We congratulate Iron Dog on a job well done: they have been able to stand out with their second Megaways slot in a very crowded and competitive Megaways market place.

This slot comes highly recommended and seriously raises the bar for Netent & Red Tiger and their Jack and the Beanstalk contender!
