Cracker Jack comes from Microgaming, and this slot is inspired by firecrackers apparently. There are quite a few classic icons as well inside, so if the 3 reels didn’t give it away, then this might tell you that it’s a classic slot machine. The firecrackers are not very evident in the design, at least not in the background picture. Leaving aside the layout and the theme, what we’re left with is a top payout of $25,000, and a couple of features which can improve the lower payouts.
Betting & Jackpots
You may use up to 2 coins for a bet that will get the three reels to spin. There is only 1 line on them. I’d recommend going with the 2 coin bet at all times, since the top prize is better that way. Your coins can have a denomination between $0.25 and $5, with a value of up to $10 per spin.
With the 2 coin bet in place, the top reward will get you 5,000 coins back, if triggered. The value for that kind of jackpot will go up to $25,000.
The features offered here, though great to have, are not unusual for such a game. The slot can take advantage of the jackpot symbol in another way, being able to use it as a substitute if it appears when it is needed, and on the payline. If the payline is covered only with wilds, then you get the top jackpot, which would be the best case scenario for this game.
Whenever a wild appears once on the line, and in the other two positions are identical regular symbols, a combination forms and it will pay 2x the typical value.
Should two wilds appear together, with a regular symbol in the other position, the multiplier offered for the win will be at 4x.
The theme of Cracker Jack has that inspiration which appears to come from firecrackers, but the subsequent explosion seems to bring the player gold coins, at least if we go by the background image, shown behind the logo. Symbols include the logo, the purple 7, a yellow 3Bar, a red 2Bar, a blue 1Bar and the firecracker.
You’re not getting anything from this game that you couldn’t get from another one. Unless you have a special affinity for firecrackers, there are better games to try out there.
