Jack and Jill is a Microgaming-powered slot machine in the Rhyming Reels series. All of the five video slots in the lineup are based on nursery rhymes, and in this case it is an English rhyme titled Jack and Jill, first published in 1765. The slot developer adapted the storyline to the adult audience making the icons somewhat spicy and giving it a more grown-up theme, with the characters going up the hill for a romantic meeting, to put it mildly. The slot features wilds, scatters, multipliers, free spins and a fixed jackpot of 4000 coins.
This is a five-reel twenty-payline video slot. The original Jack and Jill rhyme suggests that the young couple “went up the hill to fetch a pail of water”; then “Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill came tumbling after”. Microgaming has its own take on the story, so the symbols incorporate the first aid kit, the well, Jack in pink underpants and a semi-disrobed Jill. The other icons in the slot are playing card symbols from 10 to Ace that keep your bankroll ticking over. The highest paying symbol is Jack awarding a 1500-coin jackpot for five of a kind. The Jill symbol grants x40 to x1000 times a line bet for 3 to 5 of a kind. Any mixed combination of Jack and Jill symbols on an active payline awards a payout of up to 700 coins.
A coin denomination runs from $0.01 to $0.1, and the number of coins you are permitted to bet per spin is 1 to 10. Therefore, the top wager you can place per each spin amounts to $20.
The Jack & Jill logo serves as a wild multiplier. This means that the logo can substitute for other icons to complete a winning combo, and multiply the payout when substituting. Each wild replacing one or more symbols in a winning combo adds a x2 multiplier to a payout.
The bucket of water is a scatter, with 3, 4 or 5 of them triggering the free spin feature. You are awarded 15 free spins at a x4 multiplier. Besides, a scatter pays out on its own. Two Buckets landed in any position pay out x40 times a total bet, three scatters award x80, four scatters award x200, and five award a jackpot worth x1000 a total bet. By the way, the Jack symbol grants x1500, for five of a kind, which seems a bigger amount as compared with the payout for rolling up five scatters. Actually, regular wins are based on a line bet, whereas scatter wins are based on a total bet which is x20 times higher in the Jack and Jill slot if playing with all lines activated. Thus, hitting five scatters across the reels will give you a huge win, not to speak of the high-paying free spin round you’ll get. You may grab an immense award when playing the feature worth some 880,000 coins!
Though based on a nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill has a modern kinky twist to it. With its wilds, scatters, free spins and wild multipliers, the video slot has everything to keep the gamblers satisfied, including a truly huge jackpot win.
