Is 'Jack Hammer' the worst paying slot ever made?

    I don't literally mean payout %. Moreover, I'm talking about the frequency of payout symbols in winning spins.
    I constantly get the lesser symbols, but the further up the pay table you go, the less frequent the other symbols appear. Even though Jack Hammer, Doctor Wuten etc only pay tiny amounts [in the great scheme of things] for 3, I have only ever seen the the top two pay on a win line ONCE each.
    This is the pattern I see:

    Potion thingy - Constant

    Telephone - Constant

    Newspaper - Almost constant

    Car - Regularly

    Blimp - Occasionally

    Paperboy - Basically never

    Lady on Phone - Less than never

    Doctor Wuten - Who?

    Jack Hammer - Had 3 of him ONCE in countless thousands of spins

    :confused:


    This isn't a rant as such, because I've had plenty of decent wins on the slot, I just find it odd that the top 4 symbols are so rare they might as well not be part of the game.
    In any other slot I've ever played, I see 3 of the top paying symbols almost as often as the lowest paying symbols. It's just really difficult to hit 4 or 5 but on Jack Hammer, hitting 4 or 5 would feel like a jackpot.

    Yes, at least one of the worst.

    As you said the top symbols are very rare and seems to come once in 1000 spins. The Free Spins also sucks more than my Electrolux, takes forever to get them and they usually pay between 0 and 10x stake. And it even says Congratulations you won 0 coins.

    Asked a Netent I play at if they could block it so that I wouldnt play it even by mistake, sadly they couldnt. Plus I havent seen any big wins on it, that would be +200-300xbet.

    Thanks spiderlegz :)

    I'm genuinely hoping that by posting this thread, someone (probably Kasino King himself) will post a picture of multiple Jack Hammer wins in one spin.
    I doubt it though :(

    yeah I don't like that game myself for the very same reasons. But I have to admit that I can't make general assumptions because my sample size really is not that big, I played that game for 2 or 3 hours or so altogether.

    I have wins far and between with NetEnt games. I still try more than i should though :oops:

    This is the most i have won on jack and i have only ever got 3 jack hammer dudes too and max 6 scatters out of tens of thousands of spins...:rolleyes:

    Derail from Jack Hammer....
    The worst game for me at the moment is Dead or Alive...i cant hit any wilds in the free spins.

    This is a game is DEAD for me now, i hope the alive comes back soon.:)

    I have been trying for 6 months to get 5 wilds on a pay line...i have come close a few times and even gotten the extra five spins some but i am always one short...i do have some great screenshots though. :D

    Below i was betting $0.50 and won $100 just incase it's too small to read

    Thanks for that screenshot. I've never seen anything like that! I would love to, seeing as I play it @ €2.50 a spin (would be €500 for all paperboy symbols) :)

    Nope - I have hit 5 of them right across the top row once - but I didn't take a screenie of it.

    Like most people I have a love/hate relationship with Jack - I love it when the wins come thick and fast as they often do, but hate it when it goes dead for 20, 30 or even 40 spins! :eek2:
    You would think it would be low variance they way it works, but it's actually quite high IMO.
    Still my favourite NetEnt slot right now though - and I've had lot's of bet x 100+ wins on it, but nothing over bet x 152 yet...

    I have a shot similar to the one above - loads of Paper Boys and Wilds AND a free-spin trigger at the same time!

    Interestingly, I just got free spins whilst betting €2 per spin.
    The first spin was 5 (FIVE) 'lady on phone' symbols on the top row = €60. The FS then re-triggered and I won a total of €144 from 25 spins.
    Still not big enough for the screen-shots thread, but decent nonetheless.

    Just a warning, NEVER chase freespins with Jackhammer!

    I have had some decent wins in the game, but a lot of the time it will just kill your bankroll with no mercy.

    Case in point, just yesterday I decided to have a test run with it, minimum stakes 0.25c, till I get free spins. It took 1241 spins until I got 10 free spins that paid out a whopping 1.05€! I was down +70€ at this point.

    This was no isolated incident, either. Jackhammer is probably the most volatile net ent slot all in all. Beware.

    Just a note, I have played probably over 20.000 spins on the game but I have never gotten a line of 5 Jack hammers yet.

    My record of dead spins is 39 in a row.

    Jack hammer is a shit game

    stay away from this dirty rigged game, netent games are all manipulated and after winning some small amounts you keep losing and losing... The developer of this software may burn in the hell

    Woah there easy now lol. Netent games do behave like how you describe most of the time I wont deny that but so does pretty much every other slot provider. Your either gonna bust out most of the time or win something 'some' of the times. Does not really matter which slot you jump on its just how it goes else everyone can just quit their job and gamble full time.

    I personally don't like NetEnt that much but not all their games are bad. I used to love jack hammer 1+2 and it was all I played for a week once but like the OP said I don't even remember getting 5oak of the high symbols in one week of daily play but the variance did not seem so bad. You could go for long sessions of basically staying the same balance on a good day but like all other slots on a bad day its nothing but dead spins infinitely. I don't play jack hammer 1+2 anymore because the sticky features were awesome when I had never played that kind of slot before but now the novelty has worn off.

    My flavor of the month netent slots are reel steal, wild turkey, dead or alive when my balance is under $5 rolling at 0.09p, mythical maiden and at this moment it has to be alien robots because I've played it for probably less than 15 minutes last month and got a nice bonus round of x500. Don't think I'll ever see that in jack hammer lol

    I really have no idea who like jack hammer slot... Played it a lot of times couple of years ago, and i never had even 100x total bet feature or base game hit. Not saying about 5 of a kind Jacks...Variance you can say :D

    I got a 25 spin 0 win run, and since then decided to never play this game again......25 spins and not even 1x win in any of them..... my advice also would be to stay away from this unless you have like a 1000x spin roll and want to give it a try for say 100-200 spins.....

    It isn't the worst slot ever made. I actually won my first no deposit net-ent chip thanks to jack and his sticky wins. Secret code and Jack Hammer wow that was a long time ago now! Anyway regarding jack hammer and jack hammer 2 they just take either lots of luck or lots of patience or both. When they win big they are capable of mega hits especially inside of the free spins feature even full screen of telephones is like a massive hit! Saying all this though my luck on both nowhere near as good as it used to be and I must say I lose patience but get jack on a good day and it could easily contribute to all your winnings/potential cashing out ;) :cool::thumbsup:

    I like jh2, had some good wins (never any massive ones) and it's my go-to game if I have a small amount of WR left.
