With five reels and 20 Paylines, Double Dragons Slot from operator Yggdrasil Gaming features a somewhat foreboding backdrop of snowy mountain tops and has a sweeping, Hollywood movie-style soundtrack. You have a bird’s eye view of the dragons’ lair from the start. Reels are blue and red, with a design that looks almost Gothic.
And, as the name suggests, the game is based on the mythical beasts of legend.
In keeping with what players have long come to expect from this gaming studio, this slot is also fantastic to look at.
How to play
Play from 25p a go up to a very high-rolling £125, on your device of choice, mobile or otherwise. A quartet of glaring dragon’s eyes makes up the symbol set, in blue, purple, orange and green. The typically lower-paying card suits in vivid colours constitute the less lucrative emblems.
A dropdown win feature means that, once you bag a winning combo, the contributing icons vanish, to be replaced by fresh ones providing a new opportunity to score a win. What’s more, this carries on for as long as you keep winning.
Double Dragons Slot special features
In terms of Wilds, look out for two different dragon heads, one in blue and one in red, representing ice and fire respectively. These trigger features later on in the game, as described below.
They can show up in both stacked and cascading form in the base game.
Double Dragons feature
Activate this once you’ve landed four wins in a row in the main game to release the dragons! A couple of stacked Wilds will be added to the reels, and these can be up to 15 symbols high. It essentially means that, on one spin, you can enjoy a couple of Wild reels.
And you continue to benefit if you keep on landing winning spins.
Dragons Head feature
Here, dragon heads behave as Wilds, with the Fire beast converting two or three standard icons into Wilds. Meanwhile, its icy counterpart grants dropdown wins a 2x multiplier. This can be quite a nice little earner if you manage several dropdown wins in a row.
Only gathered in the main game, dragon heads are kept to the right of your reels.
If you manage nine heads of the same type, you launch this perk and can enjoy nine free whirls, with more Wilds available to enhance your prospects of a decent win.
The maximum win in Double Dragons is 20,000 coins, or €100,000.
Return to Player (RTP)
Variance in Double Dragons is best described as being on the higher side of medium and triggering the free spins round may take a shade more patience than you’d ideally like, although the odds for a good win are not outrageous. RTP or Return to Player is a decent average of 96%.
There’s a huge amount to enjoy in Double Dragons, a game one reviewer describes as ‘another belter from Yggdrasil Gaming’. Of course, these creatures have been done in slot games before. But there are some cracking features that are part of this slot, and it also has some hefty winning potential.
