Who Knew Dragon Breath Could Be So Lucrative?
Double Dragons is a 3-row, 5-reel, 25-fixed payline slot set against a split background. Each side is devoted to either fire (right) or ice (left). The graphics are richly detailed and animations such as drifting clouds, dragons breathing fire/ice, smoke billowing, and dragon eye symbols twitching make this online slot a visual treat. The soundtrack successfully sets the mood for an epic adventure.
Yggdrasil slots generally allow players to select cash or coin view which will set the game to display Balance, Total Bet and Win accordingly (the default is cash). This online slot offers a Total Cash Bet ranging from 25p – £125 at Mr Green online casino. To choose, players must select a Coin Value (0.01 – 5.00). Double Dragons’ Paytable displays winning symbol combination values in coins only. These pays remain fixed despite changes in bet selection. Coin wins are displayed across the center of the slot screen while cash wins are displayed in the win box.
Double Dragons has 12 symbols with 4 special and 8 regular. The special symbols include 2 Dragon Head Wilds (1 Red and 1 Blue), a Red Wild and a Blue Wild. All Wilds can substitute to complete winning combinations, however, none can form a winning combo independently. Double Dragons’ regular symbols consist of either slit dragon eyes or gemstone card symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Purple Eye, Orange Eye, Blue Eye, Green Eye, Spade, Heart, Diamond and Clover.
Gameplay is left to right in both Main Game and Free Spin mode. Players must get 3+ matching symbols across adjacent reels, starting from reel, to win. To profit along a single payline, get 4+ Dragon Eyes or 5+ of any regular symbol.
The highest paying regular symbol is the Purple Dragon Eye which shows a value of (125, 60, 20) giving Double Dragons the potential to award up to 5x the Total Bet along a single payline. At Mr Green casino, that’s a win of up to £625 with a 5 of a kind match. When combined with the Bonus Features, the Purple Dragon Eye gives Double Dragons its maximum prize potential of awarding up to 80,000 coins in a single spin (that’s up to £400,000)!
Yggdrasil slots typically show an Autoplay option that ranges from 10 – infinity spins. It can be set to stop automatically when Free Spins activates, on a single win amount and on a set cash increase/decrease amount. Yggdrasil slots also offer several useful Game Settings: set it to show values in either coin or cash, select ‘spin speed’ ranging from tortoise slow to rabbit fast, adjust volume and toggle sound on/off.
Double Dragons Bonus Features
Dropdown Wins: Any time a winning combination occurs, the winning symbols disappear only to be replaced by new symbols that fall from above. This functions in a similar fashion to a Re-spin and provides an additional chance to form winning combinations.
Dragon Head Wilds: There is a Red and a Blue Dragon Head Wild. The Red Dragon breathes fire adding 2 – 3 Wilds to the reels. The Blue Dragon breathes ice and grants a 2x Win Multiplier to any new ‘Dropdown Wins’ that may occur.
Double Dragons Feature: This activates after 4 consecutive wins occur. Each win fills up the tower to the left of the slot screen. When it reaches the top, 2 ‘Highstack Wilds’ are added to the reels. These can be up to 28 symbols long.
Free Spin Mode: Along the right side of the slot screen, there are 18 notches. 9 are red and 9 are blue. Each Dragon Head Wild (red or blue) that appears during gameplay automatically fills 1 notch. Once either 9 Fire (red) or 9 Ice (blue) Dragon Heads have been collected, a round of 5 initial Fire or Ice Free Spins triggers. This mode gives the added advantage of only requiring 2 consecutive ‘Dropdown Wins’ to trigger the Double Dragons Feature.

Borrow the Power of Fire and Ice
Double Dragons has the outstanding graphics quality, animations and big win potential to make it worth a spin. Players that enjoy slots which award small wins frequently will find this to be a perfect fit. Not to mention, fans of the Dropdown Win Feature will probably also enjoy the similar Cascading Reels of NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest or Rolling Reels of Jungle Jim El Dorado.
While taking the demo version of Double Dragons for a 100 spin test run, this online slot awarded an average of about 4.6 wins every 10 spins. While we experienced a high frequency of wins, only 15% of all wins were profitable. Out of 100 spins, the Red and Blue Dragon Heads triggered once each and the Double Dragons Feature triggered once awarding a substantial win of 1610 coins. Free Spins did not activate.
