There are five reels and three rows. The game has 243 fixed paylines, meaning that you cannot select fewer paylines or cheaper spins. However, you can select coin values from 1p to £2 per payline. This translates to 25p to £50 per spin.
Now, what is the deal with Double Symbols? Double symbols counts as two single symbols, and the player can win on up to 10 symbols in a winning way. All symbols in this slot come in Singles and Doubles, including the high-value Diamonds and Sevens.
To understand the game better, I’d recommend that you take a quick flip through the paytable. You’ll see the payouts for wins of 3 similar symbols, up to 10 in a row. With such a large range of possible wins, it is easy to hit winning combinations in this slot. Of course, the amount of cash offered in each win can differ greatly; more often than not, the prizes are mediocre in size.
There is only one other special symbol in the Doubles slot – free spins. Three free spin symbols award 10 free spins; four symbols gives you 20 free spin and five symbols triggers 50 free spins! The Free Spins mode is even more exciting than the regular base game too. Firstly, you’ll get to select one regular symbol to be a Double symbol. For example, if you pick a watermelon, all the watermelons that appear during your 10 free spins are Double Watermelons.
The game offers some handy advice as well – pick a low-value fruit like lemons and oranges for small, frequent wins; or take a chance of Diamonds and Sevens for huge wins. One single payline with Ten diamonds gives you 25,000 times your wager. You’d typically score few paylines in a single win and this makes for some pretty huge wins. I wanted the best of both worlds and went for the cherries and starfruit, both of which sits smack in the middle of the scale. Although these free spins do not occur very often, they are definitely worth the wait.

Double has a refreshing aesthetic. The symbols are classic fruits that you’d find in any video slot machine from the 80s; however, these fruits have a multi-faceted poly-graphics look. I love the fun colours, the toe-tapping music and explosive animation. All of these elements go together quite well and create a fun gaming experience. However, I have a small bone to pick with Doubles. Each spin goes on for slightly too long. I understand that the developers are trying to build suspense, but they are toying with my patience. I prefer faster-paced games. After some digging around the Settings dashboard, I did find the option to choose faster spins.
Yggdrasil Gaming is a relatively new gaming company. Despite that, they have racked up quite a few awards, including Software Rising Star at this year’s EGR B2B Awards. They boast a handsome portfolio of games, including Jokerizer, Vikings go Wild and the famous, Joker Millions. Surprisingly, Doubles is their first slot with 243 paylines. Thankfully, they did not just pack a simple game with hundreds of paylines. Instead, their creative minds twisted the usual slot format and produced this unique game that is Doubles.
Doubles is the kind of slot that would please any type of player. There are frequent wins as well as big ones; small wagers as well as big ones. Yggdrasil Gaming also made the smart move of allowing players to customize their bonus game.
Players with a taste for high risk would choose the Diamond, while softy players like me derive great joy from doubling Lemons. The Doubles feature also offers a unique twist to the world of slots. I’d highly recommend this game to everyone.
