With a theme that's reminiscent of movies like Shrek, Jack and the Beanstalk is wonderful to look at. Animated reel icons including Jack, the giant, an axe and a fantastic grumpy goat join the usual A, K, Q, J and 10.
The action is set up by a cinematic intro that's on par with animated feature films and the game's background is a charming medieval village that occasionally comes to life. There's soothing birdsong to enjoy, interrupted only by whimsical music that kicks in when a Walking Wild appears.
All in all, the theme is really immersive – it's not often that pokies transport you into a fairytale, but Jack and the Beanstalk does a wonderful job of it.
