There is also a free spins feature that also brings the walking wild into play again. There is a total of 15 free spins up for grabs, and players need to keep their eyes open for the lantern symbols as these will activate the Jack ‘o’ Lector feature where wilds can land two and three high and award re-spins but better still there is also a wild reel that will shift with each and every free spin. When it comes to the visuals Halloween Jack really is superb. Set amidst a dark, ghostly landscape complete with a truly harrowing soundtrack, that really is rather scary! When it comes to the gaming symbols players can expect to come across the usual playing card symbols, Ace through to 10 and the cards have a creepy theme as they are all held within creepy creature hands. Other symbols include ravens, bats, horseshoes, horses and a female vampire who is also the most rewarding symbol and pays out x50 of the players stake for landing five across any pay line.
The wild in Halloween Jack is depicted by the pumpkin and can substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter to create winning combinations. The wild can appear on all of the reels in the base game apart from reel one, and any win that is made using a wild is awarded with a x3 multiplier, as well as the Walking Wild feature coming into play whenever a wild is landed. Once the Walking Wild feature is activated a re-spin is deployed and all wilds in show will move one reel to the left and the player is given additional re-spins until there is no more wilds in show on the reels. The Walking Wild feature can be activated in the free spins feature and base game, giving players some great opportunities to land wins. Players will trigger the free spin feature when they land three or more of the scatters which are represented by the chest.
Landing three chests sees players awarded with 10 free spins and landing a further three or more scatters awards five more spins giving a winning potential of 15 spins in total. As stated above the Walking Wild feature can be activated on any free spin and this is activated when the wild lands on any of the three middle reels. The lantern symbol will only make an appearance on the fifth reel and when it lands the Jack ‘o’ Lector feature is then activated and will give players access to the following three extra wilds. First there is the Stacked Hell Hound Wild, to activate this players need to land three lanterns with the wild appearing on the reels then changing into a 2-high Stacked Hell Hound Wild, and this will then also activate the Walking Wild feature. Next is the Stacked Jack-o’-lantern Wild, to activate this players need to land six lanterns and the next wild that appears will then become a 3-high Stacked Jack-o’-lantern wild, and the Walking Wild feature is activated again. Finally, there is the Expanding Death Reaper Wild which comes into play when the player collects nine lanterns and the next wild then becomes the Expanding Death Reaper wild symbol, players then have a wild reel that shifts across one reel with each free spin.
