Based on the classic Jack and the Beanstalk story, Giant Riches is an unusual 8 reel, 6 row and 60 payline 2BY2 Gaming slot machine. This fairytale-themed game comes with mystery symbol transformations and a bonus feature that allows you to award up to 100 free spins with a multiplier of 2x. Try turning magic beans into cash between £ 40p and £ 160 per spin.
The visuals all relate to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk – flanked by a mighty castle and Jack climbing in a magic bean, pastel tones dominate the reels. Look for less valuable playing cards alongside a harp, magic beans, a goose, a purse, the giant and of course Jack.
The reel configured in Giant Riches is a bit unorthodox – the game is played on an 8-reel machine. There are 2 rolls on the left, the two compounds of 6 rows. On the right, 2 sets of rolls 3×3. They combine to create 60 paylines with many chances to win. On rollers 1 and 2, standard symbols of higher value can appear stacked up to a height of 6 symbols. On rolls 3 to 8, they can reach 3 symbols high.
The Giant Riches logo is the game’s wild game, replacing everything that separates it. You only need 2 wilds to create a winner. 5 will bring you 12.5 times your total bet. The symbol of the castle is the dispersion. Up to 8 of them can land on the 3 sets of reels. To trigger the Free Spin feature, you need to see 3 or more anywhere on the reels. The number of free spins depends on the number of castles you get:
Three castles – 8 free spins
Four castles – 12 free spins
Five castles – 16 free spins
Six castles – 20 free spins
Seven castles – 30 free spins
Eight castles – 50 free spins
8 castles will also bring you an exceptional gain of 30 times your total bet. No matter how many free spins you win, all payments made during the bonus round are doubled. You can also rediscover the feature with an incredible offer of 100 free spins.
The other plus in Giant Riches is the Mystery feature – it can hit both basic and free spins and can turn symbols in mystery positions into a single symbol. In free spins this can be the harp, the goose, a coin pocket or the Giant Riches logo.
Can Giant Riches live up to his name? We found that the variance was relatively high. Despite the 60 paylines, we endured periods of leanness but we managed to hit him hard enough in the long lap.
This slot machine is certainly a little unusual and it takes a while to understand the unusual game engine. Some demonstration tours are recommended. Once you have tuned in, you can take full advantage of it. This is not the most sophisticated slot machine you’ll see visually, but a lot of free spins with the dubbing multiplier and the giant riches offered here are more than just a fairy tale. If you like the theme, NetEnt’s Jack and the Beanstalk is recommended.
