Long Pao, new NetEnt slot and Jack Hammer clone

The last couple of months NetEnt has released several previously released slot games with a re-skin for the Asian market.

Games like Dead or Alive became Who’s the Bride, Piggy Riches became Pirate from the East and Super Lucky Frog became Gold Money Frog.

Now NetEnt has taken Jack Hammer and changed it into Long Pao.

Long Pao comes with 25 lines on 5 reels, 3 symbols high. All symbols spin individually. There are wild and scatter symbols on all reels.

Sticky Win

Just like Jack Hammer, Long Pao also comes with the sticky win feature.

When you get a winning combination, all winning symbols are held. All other symbols will re-spin. As long as you improve your win, you will get another re-spin. The re-spins end when no improvement appears.

Free Spins Feature

Getting 5 or more free spins symbols will trigger the free spins feature. The more symbols, the more free spins you will receive.

  • 5 scatters award 10 free spins
  • 6 scatters award 15 free spins
  • 7 scatters award 20 free spins
  • 8 scatters award 25 free spins
  • 9 or more scatters award 30 free spins[/fancy_list]

During free spins all wins are multiplied by three. The Sticky Win feature is also active during free spins.

Verdict

I am not a big fan of this re-skinning of older NetEnt slot games. I get it, but for most players this will not add something new.

But it is a good way to bring old, sometimes forgotten, slot games back into the picture. Like Jack Hammer. That game is a couple of years old and I think pretty much forgotten. But it is a fun game!

The re-spins are a nice feature. And the three times multiplier during free spins on top of the re-spins can really give some good wins.

Check out Long Pao at any NetEnt casino.
