Jumping Beans is all about Mr. and Mrs. Bean who obviously are from Mexico judging from the theme of the slot. This is a pretty fun and well executed 3 reel and 5 pay line slot. It seems that at times it is difficult to have as much fun on such small slots in comparison to the 5 reel and 50 pay line ones out there, yet RTG pulls it off quite well here. You have a scatter, a wild and free games including additional bonus features.
There are two bonus features in this game that will make you forget that you are playing with just 5 lines and on 3 reels, especially if you are accustomed to the bigger video slots. The first is the Auto Nudge. This feature gives you a second chance of scraping some more wins even after the reels have stopped spinning. Once the reels stop and wins you have are paid out, if by chance any of the reels have a Mr. Bean, the wild, and Mrs. Bean, the scatter, appearing above or below the reels, the reels will nudge to bring them onto the screen and payouts will be awarded again after the nudge.
Once you have three Mrs. Bean symbols anywhere on the reels after the nudge, the Bonus Bean feature will be activated. You get 10 free spins during which you collect Bonus Beans, which are tallied. Anytime a Bean character appears on the reels you accumulate bonus beans. Depending on the number counted once the spins are over you will get a significant payout. You can re-trigger the feature just once when 5 more spins will be added.
On top of all this the slot is tied to two jackpots which are triggered at random during the game.
The controls are more than simple since the 5 pay lines are fixed. You just need to set the bet. Here again you will not be disappointed that you are playing such a 'small' slot since the bet can go from as little as $0.05 to as high as $25. You also have the Autoplay option and various buttons to get more information on the features and payouts.
