Today 7Slotmachines has been testing the original Jack Hammer slotmachine game developed by NetEnt. In this review you will read about general features of the game and our experience with it using our famous 1000 spins back test. We don’t like lying or lies at all, so that’s why we included a video where you can see every single of these thousand spins to confirm our authenticity when it comes to slotmachine back testing.

We have to start by saying that of course Jack Hammer is some of the what older slotmachines developed by NetEnt and therefor less smooth or high-tech than we are used to nowadays from the Swedish game developer. The Jack Hammer original version is by gameplay a lot more simple than the newer NetEnt slots like Jack and the Beanstalk and Gonzo’s Quest, but that shouldn’t be a problem for true slotmachine lovers. I have to say here, that Starburst is a super simple game too, yet the most populair online slotmachine game ever.

Jack Hammer itself is super popular worldwide, the game did it so well that they released a sequel to it, Jack Hammer 2: Fishy Business. Starburst hasn’t have any story whatsoever, the original Jack Hammer and it’s sequel do. When Jack Hammer was released in 2010 by NetEnt this was quite unique for slotmachine games at the time.

The game is based on the comic icon Jackhammer created by Marvel Comics. Hammer is a so called ‘private eye’, a private detective that fights crime from the comic city of Grand City. There’s a big villain there that wants to poison all residents, Dr. Evil Wüten. Guess who’s the only one who can stop him? Exactly… you! For all lore fans out here, it’s quite nice to know that the developers at NetEnt got their inspiration for Jack Hammer from the American comic hero Dick Tracey.

Jack Hammer slotmachine game and it’s features

Jack Hammer has 25 win lines and you can play for real money as low as $0.01 per line. Minimum bet is thus $0.25 per spin. The game features 5 reels with 3 symbols each. The symbols consist of funny comic drawings. What was super special about this slot back in the days and still is quite good today, are the sticky wins. Whenever you spin three or more of the same symbol on a reel, you will receive a free spin. The winning symbols stay on the reels and if the new spin generates a new, higher prize, you will be rewarded another free re-spin. This goes on until you don’t spin any winning symbols anymore.

Although it’s not in the video we made whilst back testing Jack Hammer with 1000 spins and you have to take my word for it, I remember when I was 19 years old, one day, I had a screen with all 5 reels all 15 squares filled with ringing telephones. As I bet only small at that time, $0.02 per line $0,50 per spin, it netted me like $50+, more than 100 times my wager per spin, which I would never forget, as it was my initiation into online slots at the time.

Whilst back testing the win rate of this slotmachine game again 7 years later, I realize again, that in this slotmachine game, although you bet quite low, the sticky wins sometimes generate more than 100 times wager per spin payouts, even when your total bet value is like just a few cents. This makes me legitimately clarify here that you can actually stretch your Dollar quite long on this game. If you’re looking for a slotmachine game where you can play for a super long time, using just a few Dollars, this is definitely one the games to play.

Jack Hammer has one sweet feature as well. If you spin 5 or more Free Spins symbols, you will get free spins, according to the total amount of free spins symbols. You will receive a minimum of 10 free spins and a maximum of 30, each with a profit multiplier of x3 (all money you will win goes times three during these free spin modes).

Jack Hammer actually makes it super easy for you to get 5 or more free spins symbols. If you just get 3, they are gonna stay as sticky wins and using the re-spins you get it shouldn’t be to hard to get 5 or more.

Jack Hammer slotmachine game conclusion and experience

Jack Hammer is one of the older slotmachine games around. That doesn’t matter, because the slot looks modern and has unique, fun and exciting ways to win (sticky wins). The symbols are quite funny and the music from the soundtrack is quite good too. Definitely for players who don’t like to play jackpot slots or who wanna stretch their Dollar quite far on a regular slotmachine that performs well, Jack Hammer might be the best choice.

Fun Fact: Before the game was called Jack Hammer, it was called Jack Hammer vs Dr. Evil Wüten. Online casinos didn’t agree with this long name and chose a shorter name: Jack Hamer. Also the sequel is not even called Jack Hammer 2: Fishy Business anymore, rather just Jack Hammer 2.

If you wanna play Jack Hammer I suggest you take a look at LeoVegas Casino. There you will get some free spins and whenever you decide to make a deposit, you will get a 200% bonus upon it directly. So if you deposit let’s say $50 on LeoVegas, you will receive a $150 starting balance, which is more than enough money to try this slotmachine game out and maybe even a few others!

P.S. I always recommend to have enough money to spin at least 200 spins on your favorite wager per spin level. With less than that you cannot get the most out of most slotmachine games, but maybe it’s just me. In this article you can read more about my recommended bankroll for online slots.
