Another beautifully designed, graphics-oriented offering from Yggdrasil Gaming, Double Dragons is a gamer's delight. In addition it has excellent mini animations and sections within the gameplay to excite any slot machine player. Set on a somewhat foreboding looking background, the reels of Double Dragons are red and blue within what looks like a gothic style design. The fiery looking background is lighter on one side and darker on the other, with vague mountainous outlines visible behind.
Double Dragons is a five reel slot with twenty paylines on offer. The ominous ambience already created when entering the game is only heightened by the theme's symbols. The low values are simply brightly coloured suit symbols, but the higher ones are displayed with glaring dragon eyes in various hues. There are a few extra symbols to look out for, the important ones being two wilds symbolized by two separate dragon heads, one red, one blue (representing fire and ice). These will activate further features later on in the game.
As the dragons begin to circle and the game heats up, there are a couple of necessary bits of information for players to know. 1 coin is the minimum and maximum allowed per line. Coin size ranges from 0.01 up to 5 and ends with a jackpot of a simple 125 coins. With an
of 96%, and a medium level variance, Double Dragons offers players pretty good odds for a good win.
Even without the extras, this game offers big wins to players in the simple base game, as it offers up stacked and cascading wilds. Stacked wilds turn up on all five reels. Cascading wilds simply explode the reels so that more symbols will drop down from above, thus creating more winning opportunities.
The big draw, though, is still the Double Dragons feature. This is triggered by getting four consecutive wins in the base game. This releases the two aforementioned dragons onto the reels. These two icons form more stacked wilds and can number up to as many as 28 at one time. Obviously this provides players with some huge winning opportunities. In addition, throughout this Double Dragon game play, players should collect dragon heads. Every time a blue one is found, all wins are doubled. A red dragon adds two or three further wilds to the game. To reach the Free Spins round (yes there is one of those too!), players need to collect nine dragon heads of the same colour. This will offer up nine spins to the player.
Double Dragons is well worth the time to play. With huge winning potential, any spin could win players over 1000x the bet. In addition, the base game’s bonus features do get activated very regularly, and can offer some of the game’s larger wins.
