Why is the Jack Hammer slot so special?
Comics seem as big now as they have ever been, though perhaps they don’t have the mass market reach that they did in the 1930s pulp fiction heyday of the noir gumshoe that is celebrated in Jack Hammer, the fantastic crime-themed 15-reeler from NetEnt.
A picture is worth a thousand words
The theming of some online video slots is skin deep, but Jack Hammer really brings the age of permanently smoking shooters and Good V Evil battles to life in vivid newsprint colour.
The reels become a moving comic strip telling the story of our hero, the hale, hearty and hunky Jack Hammer, as he cleans up the city.
The jazz and sirens soundtrack is the perfect complement to this beautifully realised visual world
Big wins under the gloss
A good looking game is a good start, but games don’t get or stay popular unless they deliver great gameplay and decent returns.
The theoretical return to player of 96.96% in Jack Hammer slot game is a big temptation to players to join this crime-fighting crusade themselves. With a volatility rating of “low”, this games should also keep regular wins coming.
The independently-spinning symbols that make up the 15 reels aren’t just visually arresting, they bring a new dimension to gameplay that is boosted by the trademarked NetEnt Sticky Win feature and back it with a big-paying free spins round.

The ‘I’ icon is where you will find the paytable of payouts, rules on how to play and the various win lines.

Jack Hammer Slot Game on Mobile
Any mobile or tablet device will allow you to indulge in some comic-book action. When you launch Jack Hammer on mobile, you will need to rotate your device to landscape mode – to allow the slot machine to load.
You spin button is no longer housed on the control panel, instead it’s situated to the right of the screen and almost covers the middle symbol of the fifth reel, but fear not, when those reels spin, the spin button will vanish and allow you to view the whole 5×3 grid of symbols.
The control panel has changed from silver and green to black – this offers a more pleasant player interface. Your bets, bankroll, wins, the paytable and sound options are all housed on the control panel as normal.
Our Verdict on Jack Hammer Slot Machine
If you’re a fan of comic’s – you’re going to love Jack Hammer. Why just read comic books when you can immerse yourself into them? Jack Hammer allows you to play the part of the private eye, tracking down evil and reaping big rewards, but which how do you win the big cash?
The top prize is awarded if you can trigger the free games, land the highest paying symbol as a full win line and make use of that 3x multiplier. Okay, so maybe it’s a big ask to get all those three to work in your favour, but there are plenty of generous wins to be had during the base game.
Wins are few and far between, which means you will be playing for considerable lengths of time before triggering a big-value win, so make sure you look after your bankroll.
Low stakes players won’t have to fear much – other than running out of funds before the free spins have been triggered, but high rollers have the issue of splashing big cash in every spin, with long periods with no returns.
This medium to high variance slot is exciting, especially with that sticky win feature – but you’ll need a win to fall before this comes into play.
