Despite its name Doubles has nothing to do with tennis – nor spirits for that matter. The doubles of the title are double symbols contained this old school fruity makeover from Yggdrasil Gaming. It’s an action packed 243 ways to win title that features a bonus round that offers up to 50 free spins and jackpots of 25,000 coins. Play from between 25p and £50.
Anyone who grew up playing classic fruit machines will find plenty to enjoy here – the reels include nine very familiar symbols. Look out for plums, lemons and oranges, melons, cherries and stars, horseshoes, 7s and diamonds. They can appear as both single and double symbols.
Just 3 will get you a win given the 243 ways to win game engine. The payouts can really start to fly when you hit multiples of same double symbol though. The top payer is the diamond which will net you an eye-popping score of 25,000 times your line bet if you manage to find a 10 symbol combination.
The double symbols on their own would be enough to keep the pace high – Doubles has the added attraction of a bonus round. Find 3 or more Free Spin symbols to trigger the feature. Here you’ll be awarded between 8 and 40 free spins depending on how many bonus signs you hit.
Before the free spins play out you have to choose a symbol. Your chosen symbol will then only appear as a double during the bonus games, offering the chance of some very decent scores.
The classic theme in Doubles is evident in the sound and visuals – the images have a blocky feel and are reminiscent of the graphics on an old home computer or console. The action plays out to a plinky, electro style soundtrack that sounds like it was created on a Casio keyboard in the early 1980s. It all adds to the old school vibe though.
Scandinavian developer Yggdrasil has a reputation for developing lavish, graphically rich slots. In Doubles, they’ve shown they’re just as comfortable with a classic theme.
If you’re after complex feature rounds and sophisticated imagery Doubles may not be the slot for you. If on the other hand you want fast action with touch of nostalgia, complete with the chance of some big wins then Doubles should fit the bill nicely. I do prefer the volatile Cazino Zeppelin or Vikings Go Wild which are both high variance offerings (from Yggdrasil Gaming).
