The brilliantly-named Jack Hammer is an original superhero creation from the bright minds at NetEnt. Jack is a crime-fighting private eye in a universe that seems like a wonderful combination of the classic Batman, Superman and other hero comics that you know and love.
Along with the original-meets-familiar theme (that looks fantastic we might add) is some original-meets familiar gameplay. We’ve all played on pokies that give out free spins, but probably not as many as this game does. Also, rarely have we seen a sticky wild feature activated during those free games, which is Jack’s main feature.
Read on in our Jack Hammer review to find out just why we were so impressed with this Jack fella and all that he offers up players.
Jack Hammer’s biggest strength (among many) is the huge amount of free spins he gives you, which more than make up for lacking any sort of true bonus mini-game.
Why Play This Pokie
Exciting superhero theme makes you feel like you are in an old school comic book
Sticky wild feature adds to both the excitement and your bankroll
Re-spins are plentiful and free game wins pay 3x
Top jackpot of 250,000 coins
Jack Hammer Key Features
The minds behind our review of Jack Hammer were expecting some sort of crime-fighting mini-feature at least, but ultimately weren’t too disappointed when they discovered that this pokie offers many things even better than that:
- Sticky Win feature lets you earn free spins on top of free spins
- Wager ranges for players of all budgets
- Triple payouts during free spins
- Beautiful and interesting comic-book inspired graphics
- ‘Sticky’ symbols get held in place until there are no new real cash wins
The originality and heavy detail of the theme and its characters meant that this game was already excellent before its other features were even looked at.
Wagers in Jack Hammer can be made at coin values .01, .02, .05, .10, .20, .50, and 1.00. Then, there are 10 different bet levels which each multiply your wager by an increasing amount. Given all that, the minimum bet you can make is 0.25 and the max is 250.00.
The game’s symbols all stick with the superhero comic book theme. There are four character ones that pay out from 200-1000 coins for five of a kind and then five inanimate object symbols that pay out 40-125 coins for showing the same amount (and on down for three and four of a kind). There are also wild symbols which don’t pay anything themselves outright, but can sub in for other symbols except for the free spin ones (we explain their function a little later on in our review of Jack Hammer).
Jackpot & Bonus Games
There’s no supervillain-battling bonus game in Jack Hammer, but instead there are Sticky Symbols and free spin rounds which can be pretty lucrative. Free spins are triggered by, surprise, landing at least five free spin symbols, which will earn you 10 free games. Six symbols earns you 15, seven nets you 20, and so on up to the 30 free spins you will earn if nine-fifteen free spin symbols are showing at once. All real money wins during these free games pay out 3x in coins.
The sticky symbols show up after you complete a winning bet line or when three or more free spin symbols show. Any reels with winning symbols are held in place while all the other reels spin again, possibly leading to some big real money wins. This continues until there is a spin that doesn’t result in a win. Taking into account these two features, that makes the top jackpot in the game a whopping 250,000 coins.

- Same great straightforward gameplay just like on PC
- Clear sound effects even on tiny speakers
- No need to download clunky apps
Why Jack Hammer Is Worth Playing
