Wild Jack 81 is a simple Wild West adventure that puts a set of fruit symbols under the scorching prairie sun. The game unfolds on three rows, four reels and seven paylines – which don’t always remain at that number.

Besides lacking a heartbeat, the game doesn’t do well with the visual design either, a factor that may turn many players away. That is unless you are reading my review and are just finding out about the maximum exposure of 2240x your bet.

Theme and Design

The background of a prairie makes it known that Wild Jack 81 is set on a ranch. The game is about Jack, who is the game’s wild symbol that can turn a regular winning outcome into something more substantial, but more on that shortly.

There really isn’t much to say about the graphics. The symbols are drawn in a very basic way and win outcomes aren’t marked by any visual effects. In all due respect, I find this one of the blandest games on Wazdan’s catalogue.

On the other hand, the game was meant to appear as a commonplace classical pokie – one that players don’t bat an eye at on the casino floor, in favour of games that are ‘loud’ and have a poignant visual appeal. The reason why some players like Wild Jack 81 is the big win potential.

Extra Features

Wild Jack 81 has only one extra feature that can be found across a few other slots by Wazdan, including Dino Reels 81.

  • Wild

    The Jack character is the wild symbol. It substitutes for any of the symbols on the paytable and provides the biggest payout. In addition to this, any time a wild appears on the reel-set, in any position, the number of paylines increases from seven to 81. In plain words, the wild symbol improves the odds of a payout from that spin.

  • Gamble Game

    This is a standard feature in Wazdan slots. Any winning outcome can be gambled for a chance to double that amount. This is a guessing game where you have to press on either the black or the red card. Each good guess doubles the amount you have won up to that turn.

Bets and Payouts

Wild Jack 81 plays on three rows and four reels, so each payout has to include four matching symbols or a combination of that symbol and the wild.

Three fruit symbols and the bells comprise the minor payouts, which are 1x and 2x your bet. The stars, the sevens and the BAR symbols pay 8x, 10x and 12x respectively. Big payouts are made with the bulls and the wilds at 60x and 120x your bet.

The game has a value for the RTP (return to player) that is above average, at 96.73%. The range of bets begins with 10p per spin and end with a maximum of $80.00.


Since the option to choose the volatility level is not included in the game, Wild Jack 81 has been given a medium volatility. I had both small and medium payouts occur, but it is hard to pinpoint the hit rate.

At times, the game can have these wild swings that have resulted in several good payouts, followed by near-misses, and then few small wins, and so on. Maybe this is the reason why some players like it. This kind of unpredictability could possibly lead to payouts that lean closer to the 2240x maximum.
