A pokie themed after a fairy tale? It’s certainly been done before, but it’s admittedly not usually the one that jumps out most at us when deciding which pokie to play next. However, we’d be fools to have passed on this Jack and the Bean Stalk pokie from NetEnt.
As you’ll learn in our review of Jack and the Bean Stalk, this is one pokie that is highly probable to grow your bankroll in unique and interesting ways (and at the same time you grow the beanstalk of course).
No pokie is perfect, and Jack certainly has some things we would wish upon a star to be a little different (like having a true bonus game). However, considering all the other features we’ve never seen anywhere else along with an incredibly large jackpot, our review of Jack and the Bean Stalk earned high marks from our team across the board.
Why Play This Pokie
Re-spins that just keep growing and growing...
Wilds pay out 3x when they help complete a payline
Unique Treasure Collection feature makes you feel like playing an RPG
Smartphone play done right on NetEnt’s mobile Touch collection
Jack and the Bean Stalk Key Features
While the theme didn’t seem too exciting at first to our Jack and the Bean Stalk online pokies review crew, nothing about this slot’s great qualities turned out to be a fairy tale (though the top jackpot might seem like it). They especially loved:
- Treasure Collection “side-quest” is fun, interesting, and lucrative
- Walking Wild feature can create perpetually-going free spins
- Impossibly large jackpot of 600,000 coins
- Included on NetEnt’s mobile ‘Touch’ line of pokies
- Great graphics and fitting sound effects
Unbelievable payouts combine with exciting mobile gameplay and a plethora of high-paying features to create a pokie with no flaws.
There are wagering options for all types of players within the beanstalk. Wagers can be made with Jack in increments of .01, .02, .05, .10, .20, and .50 and on pay levels of 1-10 that multiply your bet by a designated amount. This make the game’s max bet 100.00 and the minimum .20.
The game’s basic symbols that will help you win big real money are Jack, the evil purple Kings, a goat, an axe, and a watering can. Jack is the highest paying of these at 1000 coins when he shows five times. There’s also 10, J, Q, K, and A icons that pay out less than the other symbols in the game. The game’s scatter symbol, a treasure chest, activates 10 free spins when it appears three or more times. If it appears that many times again during those free spin, that’s even more free games you’ve earned.
Jackpot & Bonus Games
There’s no true bonus game in Jack and the Beanstalk, however there is a pretty interesting feature called the Treasure Collection. Key symbols appear on reel five and accumulate in a queue on the bottom of your screen as you collect more and more. Collect three keys and the next wild to appear becomes a stacked wild of two money bag symbols. Collecting six makes the next wild a stacked reel of three golden hen symbols, and collecting nine becomes an expanding wild in the form of a harp.
War Machine: You’ll have eight free spins during which at least three random wilds will appear on every game. Landing more can obviously result in some even larger real cash wins, and if you show a War Machine symbol on the middle reel you will earn three more free spins.

Jack and the Bean Stalk is part of NetEnt’s mobile Touch line, which means you are getting a mobile experience similar to playing on an app without having to actually download one.
The mobile experts we had doing our Jack and the Bean Stalk mobile pokies review hate downloading apps to play pokies. So since that’s not required with NetEnt Touch pokies, they were all very happy to find:
- All the same great features and ways to win real cash as the PC version
- Easy to navigate interface just like it were on an app
- Mobile-friendly graphics and interface that look great on smartphones and tablets
- Re-spins on re-spins on re-spins possible
- Easy game to pick up and play for those 5-10 minute waits
