Jack and the Beanstalk Pokies Review

Sold the cow for some magic beans? Never fear; Jack and the Beanstalk has a hefty jackpot of 600,000 coins, so there's a chance for you to get out of the doghouse yet.

Another 3D pokies title from NetEnt with outstanding graphics, Jack and Beanstalk is absolutely worth a try. But does it have what it takes to keep players loyal?


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.


One neat feature of Jack and the Beanstalk is the Walking Wild. When one of these appears, it makes its way to the left hand side of the screen but triggers up to five re-spins before doing so. This can help your bankroll go a LOT further – how could it not when it can mean 5 spins for the price of 1? – and it's something we'd love to see in more games.

The bonus round is a bit more traditional – 10 free spins with the possibility of triggering additional free spins, which does happen more often than not, and stacked wilds if you can collect enough keys. Unfortunately, the treasure chest symbols seem pretty hard to come by and you might be playing for a while before you get to enjoy a bonus round.

Wins in standard play can be pretty low, so prepare yourself for a long slog that might chip away at your bankroll before you have a chance to win it all (and hopefully) more back in the bonus round. If you fancy a go while you're away from home, there's also a mobile version available.

Added Value

Jack and the Beanstalk's X factor is the Wandering Wild. There's no predicting when it's going to appear (as often as possible, we hope!), but the possibility of one is always there.

The free spins bonus round is excellent, with a jackpot of more than half a million coins up for grabs. Unfortunately, it feels like a long wait before you actually get there. That may well enough to keep you coming back to Jack and the Beanstalk, but you could be returning for the wrong reasons; by the time you strike it big in the bonus round, you may have put a dent in your bankroll.


With fantastic graphics that look like something out of a big budget animated movie, a great Walking Wilds feature to help you get more bang for your buck and a hefty jackpot of more than half a million coins, it's difficult to find anything bad to say about Jack and the Beanstalk. We will say that it can sometimes take a while to trigger the bonus round so, if you make the mistake of setting your bet a little higher than you should, you could find yourself burning through a lot of cash in the heat of the chase.
