    How is this slot licensed?
    I know it is Net Ent and most of the games are good if a little tighter than MGS in my experience but in all the casinos and over all the years I have played this slot (especially Jackhammer 2) I have never understood how it can be licensed as it is seemingly not random stops and works like a lottery rather than a slot - that is I can predict what it will give on the respins such as I know when it won't give a 4th matching symbol as it has patterns. (the prize is predetermined)
    Same with the scatters. They pretty much appear two at a time every spin but hitting 3 or more to start the respin to get more is a rare event. How can this be when you hit 2 any combo nearly every spin?
    Also it will just hand out 30 to 50 dead spins in a block even though you average a win every 3 or 4 spins normally (win meaning any return)
    Same thing you will have a run of respins where you are lucky to hit anymore symbols at all and you know if you hit one respin then you will get a run of bad ones.
    Likewise if you fill in more symbols you will generally do that each time until it changes.

    Every slot can have streaks but this is beyond that.

    Basically it seems to batch results and they are all from the same pot be that a stinking pot of dung or something a little more pleasant.

    Does this game have a TRTP? Do all slots work this way but just disguise it much better?

    Only comment if you have played this game many tens of thousands of spins as I, and have played millions of spins on slots please.

    Does any of what I wrote ring true with you?
    Does it matter how a slot plays if the results are drawn from a prize pool rather than stop positions and paytable?
    I only played the dumb game tonight for a change as got sick of it ripping me off long ago(seemingly - I prob have about 70% RTP on it)
    Never to be played again though. (By the second version seems even streakier than the first version)

    Firstly to hopefully make you feel that I know what I'm talking about lol, I've been an online slot player for about 10 years, so I'm with you on the millions of spins 'thing'

    Slots can blow hot and cold at anytime, any game, any casino

    I only deposit in small £20GBP most times and vary stakes between 9p and 90p depending on slot, lines on slot and whether I'm winning or not!!

    Sometimes my deposit is gone in minutes, even playing 4 or 5 different games at minimum stakes, other times It's lasted 2-3 days and I've managed a decent withdrawal, this process is ongoing, to sum it up in one word 'gambling' as exactly the same happens to me at 'land' based casinos / arcades.

    With regard to the Jack Hammer game, I'd say although it is not one of my faves, I have done a good few hours on it over the earlier part of this year.

    I've filled up the screen a good few times, mainly the lower symbols (Flask, Car, Hot Air Balloon) and as far as I can recall never experienced a really bad spell on the game.

    I did hit a £75+ free spins feature once, on minimum stake but unfortunately I'd taken a 50% bonus and It was the first game I played, need I say more...... :p

    Although Jack Hammer has never treated me really bad, I very rarely play it nowadays as I have games I much prefer, Best of luck

    I'm a big fan of both games. I used to play the first one a lot, but since the second one came out I play that one much more.

    It's hard to tell whether the spins are "pre-determined" or the result of a truly random selection from 15 fixed reel strips, and I guess at the end of the day it doesn't make any difference - though I would always prefer truly random if I had the choice (i.e. if I knew).

    I don't think you can predict you wont get the 4th matching symbol. Like many slots, the symbols are "weighted" differently on each reel and it's obvious that the low-pay symbols occur much more commonly on columns 1-3 than on 4 & 5, and the the high-pay symbols are the opposite.

    According to Video Slots Casino, the TRTP of JH1 is 97.0%, and for JH2 it's 97.1%

    In my "library" I have 10 wins over x100 on JH1, but only 4 on JH2 (which surprises me a bit).
