NetEnt’s Halloween Jack is the game for those who like the dark. It is the game for the one who walks around the cemetery on a late and dark evening and it is the slot machine for those who like the dark and scary.
This is without a doubt an introduction that makes it go cold down the back of most people. Halloween Jack was launched to the market in October 2018

Slot Machine background story.
The vending machine tells the story of a young girl who gets hurt to discover a bewitched jewelry box. The shrine influences the girl and makes her do terrible things. She tries to get rid of the crap, but it was no easy matter. Instead of getting rid of the jewelry box, she instead came to release the evil herself. The result is that even things that should protect her, such as the Jack-o-lantern (pumpkin lamp) also face her in the walking wild feature during re-spin.
How to Play on Halloween Jack.
Like so many slot machines online , Halloween Jack also comes with traditional five reels and three rows, and it offers 20 payline lines that are fixed and work from left to right. You can adjust your bet from 20 euro cents up to 100 €, or if your casino uses Norwegian kroner, from 2 kroner and up to 1000 kroner. We always recommend that you adjust the bet level to an amount that suits you, before you start playing.
The payback percentage of the machine is 96.28. This percentage says something about the percentage of funds spent that goes back to the player mass. Note that it goes back to the player mass and not to the player. The game also has a volatility of around medium and a strike rate of 34.43%. The game’s maximum payout on a single spin is 30,000 coins.
Symbols used in Halloween Jack.
As usual, the Halloween Jack symbols are also divided into two categories. These are standard symbols that are also the ones you know from the deck, ie the symbols from 10 to A. The symbols are great, dark and creepy and are part of the fantastic atmosphere created by NetEnt in Halloween Jack. They are gray and dark and a pair of gray hands with thin fingers swirl around them. The higher paying symbols are in descending order of value; the young girl herself, a dark horse with red eyes, a bat, a raven and a horseshoe.
The symbols with special features, which we will look at in the next section, are reminiscent of the person we would in good Norwegian call the man with the scythe. Here he is called the Expanding Death Reaper. It is a hooded figure where you can see a skull under the hood. The next symbol is Halloween Jack himself. This is a gentleman figure with a pumpkin to the head. This symbol has NetEnt named Stacked Jack-o-lantern. Then we have a symbol that is a wolf. This is called Stacked Hell Hound Wild. The last special feature symbol is the wild symbol and it is symbolized by a pumpkin lamp.
Halloweens Jack’s wild symbol will replace all symbols except the scatter or lamp. During the base game, the wild symbols will only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. However, during re-spin the reels will be able to appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 both in the main game and during free spins. If you are really lucky and win with a wild symbol, your winnings will be multiplied by 3.
Free spinning mode.
If you manage to spin three or more Halloween Jack scatter in the form of a coffin, during the main game, you will be rewarded with 10 free spins. And if you get three or more scatter symbols during the free game, you will get 5 extra spins extra. The free game has a very prominent place in this game and it is actually one of the best features of the whole game. The walking wild feature can actually be activated within the free spins mode.
Walking wild function.
This is a feature that we have encountered before in many other slot machines. An example from NetEnt’s own portfolio is Jack and the Beanstalk, Yggdrasil has the feature in Tut’s Twister and ELK Studios uses it in Wild Seas . Here in Halloween Jack the Walking Wild feature is activated when a pumpkin pops up on your wheels. You will be rewarded with a spin and the wild symbol (the pumpkin) will move a symbol space to the left. The feature can be activated both in the main game and during free spins.
Jack ‘o’ Lector feature.
During this feature you will collect lantern symbols and by that means the three special symbols which are the man with the scythe, halloween jack or the wolf. During free spins, any lantern symbol that lands on reel five will unlock the feature of the game. It works as follows: If you get three lantern symbols then you will get a Stacked Hell Hound Wild. If you get 6 lights symbols you get a stacked Jack ‘o’ Lector wild. If you are lucky enough to collect 9 symbols of happiness, it means you get an Expanding Death Reaper wild.
Halloween Jack is a perfect slot machine for long dark nights. Both the graphics, the sound effects and the story it is built upon are great. There is a slot machine we would definitely recommend you to try, preferably at one of our recommended casinos online.
