When you heard this fairytale as a child, it surely never crossed your mind that you'd return to Jack and the Beanstalk in a slots game as an adult.
But Net Entertainment took the treasure-seeking elements of the story and crafted it into a quite entertaining game.
It opens with a beautifully-animated short film where Jack is trying to sneak out of the giant's castle with the magic, gold-egg-laying hen.
The ugly, two-headed giant catches him in the act and a chase through the clouds ensues.
Jack and the Beanstalk is a 5-reel, 20-bet lines game with 10 bet levels and an exciting "Walking Wilds" feature that really multiplies your earnings.
It can be played on Mac, Linux and Windows operating systems.
Net ENT spared no expense in making Jack and the Beanstalk into a truly beautiful game.
With 3D graphics and pleasant bird-chirping background noises, it's easy to feel drawn into the story.
Adventurous, fairy-tale tunes accompany the Walking Wild when it's activated, and other symphonious sound effects keep you audibly engaged.
And every so often, a butterfly flutters its way across the screen, which depicts a background scene of Jack's house and yard.
Smaller-value symbols are represented by the 10, J, Q, K and A and appear as gorgeous, curling leafy vine letters atop wooden squares.
The higher symbols naturally feature our hero Jack as the highest-valued character.
