Jack and Jill is a new slot from Microgaming, released in June 2013. This new slot is part of the Rhyming Reels series of slots from Microgaming and features 20 paylines, a multiplying wild symbol, and a free spins feature.
The theme of this slot is based on the old nursery rhyme “Jack and Jill went up the hill, to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill came tumbling after”. I had always assumed that Jack and Jill were brother and sister, and my wife had the same assumption, probably due to the cartoons we watched as kids.
So it came as a bit of a surprise when we played this slot for the first time. The wild symbol has hearts on it and there is a symbol showing the scene where Jack has fallen down, but his pants are halfway down and Jill is standing there topless. There is also a symbol showing the well that they were getting water from, Jack and Jill aren’t in sight, but Jill’s shirt and bra are. If they are brother and sister, that must be an awfully close family, possibly from one of them there southern states… lol
All kidding aside, it is a good slot with great features that can help you hit some big wins. Each wild symbol adds a 2x multiplier to your win. If more than one wild symbol is involved in a winning combination, the multipliers will add together to give you up to 10x your win. The two highest paying symbols, the Jack symbol and the Jill symbol, will award a mixed pay if the different symbols line up three or more on a payline.
The free spins feature is triggered when three or more scattered Pail symbols land on the reels during the same spin. You are awarded 15 free spins with a 4x multiplier. The wild multiplier is still in play during free spins, so it is possible to hit some very nice wins with this feature. Unfortunately these free spins cannot be re-triggered, so getting three or more scatters on a free spin will only pay the scatter win.
You can play Jack and Jill at any of these Microgaming Online Casinos.
