Following the success of Jack Hammer vs. Evil Dr. Wüten, Net Entertainment created this fabulous sequel, Jack Hammer 2 – Fishy Business.

Jack Hammer 2 features the same cartoon-like graphics and retro animation as the original while Jack Hammer encounters new adventures fighting against the evil Dr. Wüten. But NetEnt upgrade the game play significantly in the sequel, with Random Wilds and an exciting Free Spin game. Also, with 99 paylines in the sequel, your winning opportunities are dramatically improved!

Game Description

Jack Hammer 2 is played with 3 rows of 5 symbols. As in Jack Hammer 1, each symbol rotates independently, giving a total of 15 reels.

As with other NetEnt slots, the aim of the game is to make winning combinations of 3-5 like-symbols appearing in succession from leftmost to right across an active bet line.

In the main game, The “Wild” symbol substitutes for all other symbols, except the “Free Spin” symbol, to help complete a winning combination. During Free Spins, additional Random Wild symbols appear randomly, and substitute for all symbols except the regular Wild symbol and Free Spin symbols.

There is no scatter symbol in Jack Hammer. There are also no “player’s skill” features in this game, like the “nudge” or “hold” features, so you have no ability to manipulate the spin results.
There is also an Auto feature, which automatically plays the game for the selected number of rounds. You also have the option to set up Advance Autoplay Settings. You can choose to stop Autoplay after a win, or when your cash funds are reduced or increased by a certain amount, for example.

Paylines and Betting Options

Jack Hammer has an impressive 99-payline. The number of active paylines is fixed to 99.

Depending on the coin value and bet level you choose, the bet per spin ranges between €0.50 – €250. Max bet automatically plays the game at the maximum bet level and the pr- selected coin value.
The current bet level, coin value, bet per spin and remaining coins/cash funds remain displayed on the bottom of the screen during the game.

Bonus Features

Free Spins – in Jack Hammer 2, if you get 5 or more Free Spin symbols anywhere on the reels, you win Free Spins (or bonus rounds). The number of free spins is according to the Paytable. For example, with 5 Free Spin symbols you win 10 Free Spins, and with 8-15 symbols you win 20 free spin. This is significantly lower than the maximum of 30 free spin you could win in the first Jack Hammer game. As in the first game, you can win additional free spins during a free round.

Sticky Wins – as in the first Jack Hammer game, a wining bet line or 3 or more Free Spin symbols trigger the Sticky Win feature. The symbols making up a winning combination are held in place, while all other symbols continue spinning, giving you a chance for additional wins. The symbols continue re-spinning as long as wining bet lines come up. A no-win spin ends the Sticky Wins feature.

Multipliers – in Jack Jammer 2, all free spin winnings are doubled, except for additional free spins winnings. Compared to the first game, in which all free spin winnings are tripled, the sequel again proved to have less generous bonuses.


jack hammer 2Jack Hammer 2 is not a progressive slot game. The Paytable payouts are more modest than the first Jack Hammer game, with a maximum jackpot of 500 coins for 5 Jack Hammer symbols (compared to 1000 coins in the first game). However, as in the first game, the Sticky win feature and the Free Spin multiplier gives you plenty of opportunities for bigger wins.

Also, according to NetEnt publications, the theoretical rate of return to player, or RTP, is 97.1%, which is slightly higher than the first Jack Hammer game.


If you enjoyed the first Jack Hammer slot, you will definitely enjoy the sequel. Although the sequel features less attractive bonus features, it has 99 paylines, compared with only 25 in the first game. That, together with the extended game play which is the result of the unique Sticky Win feature, promises you plenty of winning opportunities. So don’t hesitate to try Jack Hammer 2!
