Special Features

The first feature to discuss is that this game features a massive 1,024 ways to win where wins are formed by landing 3 or more adjacent symbols on the reels. With over a thousand ways to form winning combinations, you’ll be leaving the outback with a nice cash prize quicker than you can say “Crikey!”.

An image of a Cattle Skull is the Wild in this game and like most Wilds, it replaces all other symbols apart from the Scatter to help create winning combos on the reels. It only appears on reels 2 and 4 in the main game. When this symbol does show up and is not part of a winning combination then it will trigger a Free Respin with Wilds being held in place for that spin to give you another chance to win. This is known as the 2nd Chance Respin feature.

The Scatter symbol is represented by an image of the title character Jackaroo Jack. It is the highest paying symbol in the game as if you land 5 of these symbols as part of a winning combination then you will win a top prize worth 300 credits! Get a combination of 6 Scatters or Wilds on the same spin together to trigger the special Free Games feature where you get to choose from 5 different Free Games options which are as follows:

  • 6 Free Spins with 5X and 8X Wild Multipliers
  • 10 Free Spins with 4X and 6X Wild Multipliers
  • 12 Free Spins with 3X and 4X Wild Multipliers
  • 15 Free Spins with 2X and 4X Wild Multipliers
  • 20 Free Spins with 2X and 2X Wild Multipliers

The Wild symbol is extremely lucrative during this feature as Wild Multipliers are combined when they appear on the reels to give an even big cash payout. For example, if you select the 6 Free Spins option and land a 5X on reel 2 and an 8X on reel 4 then you will be awarded a massive Multiplier payout worth a whopping 40X! Players should note that there are some restrictions in place for the number of potential multipliers you can land as it depends entirely on the size of the wager you place. We should also mention that the 2nd Chance Respin feature can be triggered in Free Games and it's possible to retrigger the Free Games feature by landing additional Scatter or Wild symbols.

Theme and Graphics

The presentation of the game is outstanding as it takes place in front of a dusty canyon environment with a clear blue sky overhead and large rocks and green trees in the distance. Symbols are neatly designed and consist of Jackaroo Jack, a Bird, a Bull, a Horse, a Windmill, along with classic K – 9 icons. Interestingly enough, there is no ‘A’ playing card symbol which is quite strange to see. The animations are excellent as symbols burst into life when part of a winning combination. For example, when the Bird symbol is part of a win on the reels then it will fly off its perch and land back down upon it.

The music is relaxing with lots of soft and slow guitar sound effects. It fits in perfectly with the Outback theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game features 1,024 ways to win, a decent RTP of 95.62%, and an incredible maximum payout worth 768,000X your stake!

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.
