About Jack’s Ride
Jack’s Ride is a September 2017 Wazdan-owned html5 video slot adaptation of a North American-style transnational road trip in a luxury car. This game’s setting befits the term “British Columbia-Route 66 road trip” as it begins from British Columbia, Canada and traverses the famed interstate U.S. Route 66. Other thematic elements are romance, elegance, traffic signs, neon signage, cruising, and hitchhiking.
Jack’s Ride is among the seven online games under the “Jack” series whose other games are Jack on Hold (February 2016), Mega Jack (August 2012), Mystery Jack (February 2013), Mega Jack 81 (July 2013), Demon Jack 27 (February 2016), and Mystery Jack Deluxe (December 2017).
