The original Jack Hammer video slot – known as Jack Hammer vs. Evil Dr. Wuten is now something of a legendary title. This Net Entertainment game is played over 5 reels and 25 paylines, and is just as cartoon-like in design as its successor, the hugely popular Jack Hammer 2 slot.
Even in this early Net Entertainment video slot, players were not able to adjust the number of lines which featured in the game. They can alter the value of their coins, though. Coin denominations start at 0.01 and can rise as high as 1.00 in all. Players can adjust the betting levels in this slot, and that will see them wager anything from 0.25 per spin, up to a maximum stake of 250.00 per spin in all.
As for special features, players will require these to get anywhere near winning the 1,000-coin non-progressive jackpot carried in Jack Hammer.
Jack Hammer contains a Sticky Wins feature – the same feature which appears in its sequel. After any winning spin, the winning symbols will remain on the reels, whilst the remainder will re-spin. As long as you keep landing winning symbols, you will keep on bagging re-spins via this Sticky Wins feature.
A wild symbol in this slot is represented by the “pow” icon. This symbol can replace all other symbols save for scatters. If you can land these symbols during the Sticky Wins feature, then you're in for a really good time.
There is a more standardised feature in this slot, though: the free spins bonus round.
When players land 5 or more of the free spin symbols anywhere on the reels in Jack Hammer, they can trigger a free spins bonus round. In this feature, players can begin with between 10 and 30 free games depending on the number of free spin icons they landed on the reels. The free spins game works in much the same way as the base game. Understandably, since you are not paying for the spins, the Sticky Wins feature really comes into its element with this feature.
