Rhyming Reels – Jack and Jill is a five-reel 20-payline online video slot that features wild and scatter symbols as well as free spins and a top jackpot of 15 000 coins.
The Rhyming Reels – Jack and Jill Storyline
Everybody knows how the old ditty goes…
Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown
and Jill came tumbling after.
Although the characters and setting of Rhyming Reels – Jack and Jill remain pretty much the same as those in the original mildly violent nursery rhyme, Microgaming has spiced things up a little by turning the tale into a love story, which is why the reels as set against a red background covered in hearts.
Rhyming Reels – Jack and Jill symbols include, of course, the dashing Jack and his gorgeous Jill, the infamous water pail, the well at the top of the will, and an emergency medical kit – presumably to treat Jack’s cracked cranium. The regular low-paying playing cards also make an appearance in Rhyming Reels – Jack and Jill.
The Pink Jack and Jill Logo is Wild
