Jack in the Box Introduction 

Roll up, roll up, the circus is in town! Pariplay brings all the action of the big top to Videoslots Casino in Jack in the Box. This 6-reel slot features rows in a perhaps unusual 3-4-4-4-4-3 configuration, which allows for some interesting bonus features. For instance, the high-paying symbols can appear in giant 4x4 form on reels 2-5 to potentially bring about some big wins. Meanwhile reels 1 and 6 hold the bonus symbols, which will trigger the bonus round if both are landed on the same spin. This involves picking from a grid filled with the toy of the title, the Jack in the Box. Reveal 3 matching boxes and you will get a prize, which can consist of either cash or one of 5 different free spins round! Now let us make our way to the circus as we find out what the Jack in the Box slot is all about! 

The jack-in-the-box is a children's toy that has been around for quite a long time. The anme actually comes from a 16th century insult to describe a swindler who would cheat tradesmen by selling them empty boxes instead of what they ordered. The toy came around in the early 1550s from a German clockmaker, who built a wooden box with a handle. Cranking the handle would make a cartoon devil pop out of the box. This was built as a gift for a local prince, but soon after all the nobles wanted such a toy for their children. The jack-in-the-box became much more widely available in the 18th century, following the improvement of the mechanism powering the toy. 

Jack in the Box Game Features 

Jack in the Box is a slot with 6 reels and rows in a 3-4-4-4-4-3 setup, allowing for a total of 100 paylines. Paylines are formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from reel 1 and moving from left to right. Forming these paylines is a selection of 10 paying symbols divided between 6 high and 4 low pays. On the high-paying side you will find a lion, an elephant, a bear, a cannon a top hat and a bag of popcorn, while the traditional A, K, Q and J make the low pays. The ringmaster is the wild, able to substitute for all symbols except the bonus symbol. The "?" box is the mystery symbol. This transforms into any other symbol except the bonus once the spin is over. As for the bonus symbol, this is only found on reels 1 and 6. Land both on the reels for the bonus round! 

Jack in the Box Free Spins and Bonuses 

Triggering the bonus round in Jack in the Box requires you to land the 2 bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3. Here the reels are replaced with a grid of 24 mystery boxes.
