Jack Hammer

NetEnt has designed its Jack Hammer slot to look like a cartoon comic strip. It's proved to be such a popular game that NetEnt soon followed it up with a sequel.

Delve into the murky underworld of 1950s America with Detective Hammer, and you could uncover a hidden den of special features that includes sticky wins, wilds, and a Free Spins bonus that's activated by ticking time-bombs.

The Jack Hammer slot includes a night-time cityscape across the top of its reels, and the words, "A Net Entertainment Production" that complements its comic strip appearance. The cartoon symbols include a time-bomb, a newspaper boy, a telephone, a detective (Jack), a lady on the phone), an airship, Evil Dr. Wuten (Jack's arch-nemesis), a flask of poison, a car, and a copy of the Daily Grand newspaper.

It's a five-reel game with three rows and twenty-five paylines. You can play it with bets of 25p to £250 per spin, and the top jackpot is worth 250,000 coins. The RTP is 97% that is considered high.

The Sticky Win feature takes effect after any winning combination is formed or when three or more free spins symbols land on the reels. It causes all of the reels containing winning symbols to be held in place while the remaining reels are re-spun to give you a chance to score a bigger win.
