Jack Hammer 2: Fishy Business: Slot Overview

Jack Hammer 2 - Fishy Business is the sequel to the mighty popular original game about the hard nosed private detective, Jack Hammer. This time there is a new storyline involving a case of “sleeping with the fishes”, and NetEnt released this long-awaited sequel in November 2013, around 2 years after the original game was launched.


The storyline might be new, but it still takes place in Grand City, and it all plays out on 5 reels, 3 rows and 99 paylines. You can place bets as high as £250, and the cartoon strip style is, of course, kept intact. The bonus features are also pretty similar to the original game, and you’ll benefit from Stick Wins in both the base game and the free spins feature.


The free spins have a 2x multiplier (instead of 3x as in the first Jack Hammer), and you can win up to 1,980 times your stake against the 3,000x potential of the original game. The RTP has increased just a little bit (from 97% to 97.1%), and the volatility is still low. This is a good follow-up by any measure, but we might still prefer the original game due to the higher potential.


Jack Hammer 2: Fishy Business: Slot Features


What symbols are there?

As in the original game, Jack the private eye, is the most rewarding symbol, and you also find many other higher value symbols on this game. Either way, you need 3 to 5 matching symbols on one of the 99 paylines to win:


Jack - Pays 10x for 5 symbols on a payline

Lady Pearl - Pays 5x for 5 symbols on a payline

Don Crabby - Pays 3x for 5 symbols on a payline

Goons - Pays 2x for 5 symbols on a payline

Harbour at night - Pays 0.7x for 5 symbols on a payline

Speed Boat - Pays 0.5x for 5 symbols on a payline

Barrels - Pays 0.4x for 5 symbols on a payline

Weapons case - Pays 0.4x for 5 symbols on a payline

Microphone - Pays 0.3x for 5 symbols on a payline


What are the bonus features?

The bonus features are pretty much the same as on the first game in the series, and on every winning spin you activate the Sticky Win feature. This means that the winning symbols are frozen in place, while the rest of the symbols re-spin. If the re-spin gives you new matching symbols or a wild, those will be added to the locked symbols and the remaining symbols spin again.


This goes on until the screen is filled with winning symbols, or you don’t land anymore winning symbols or wilds to add to the sticky symbols. The final payout is then calculated and paid out, and it can become quite massive if you’re a bit lucky.


Free spins in Jack Hammer 2

The free spins feature is also pretty similar to the one found in the original game, and you trigger the free spins by landing at least 5 scatter symbols on the same spin. More scatters will give you more free spins, and it works as follows:


  • 5 scatters gives you 10 free spins
  • 6 scatters gives you 13 free spins
  • 7 scatters gives you 16 free spins
  • 8 or more scatters gives you 20 free spins


In the free spins round you’ll benefit from a 2x multiplier on all wins, and extra wild symbols will be added to the reels in addition to the regular wilds. You will also benefit from the Sticky Win feature during the free spins, which will make it last much longer and boost your winnings for sure Land at least 5 scatters and you get more spins up to a grand total of 40 free spins.



Jack Hammer 2: Fishy Business: Slot Verdict

NetEnt has played it rather safe with this sequel, and it’s understandable given the success of the original game. Still, we would have hoped for a little more innovation. All the bonus features are pretty much the same, and the potential is significantly lower than the first game. The only real change is the storyline, the symbols and the fact that you now have 99 paylines instead of 25.



  • Sticky Win feature on every spin
  • Free spins with sticky wins and 2x multiplier
  • Win up to 1,980x times your stake on a low variance slot



  • Potential is lower than the original game
