It’s like we have started a game on the good old Super Nintendo! The Doubles slot gives us the feeling of a computer game from the 90’s. The landscape has some similarities with the new Minecraft craze, so angular that you can count the pixels. An original idea from developer Yggdrasil to apply this style in a slots game. It is time to transform those pixels into Pounds!
Our first experiences..
When we start the slot we first see the logo of Yggdrasil. For our readers who wonder why the company has chosen such a complicated name? Yggdrasil, is the tree of life and knowledge of the Norse cosmology.. Next we get an quick introduction and then we can start with the first spins! The animations perfectly match the style of this slot, simple yet entertaining. When we win a prize the matching symbols explode and then they are visible again flashing on the screen..
Free spins and Doubles
The Doubles slot is packed with nice features. When you get 3 or more free Spin symbols the bonus feature is activated. 3 free spin symbols means you won 10 free spins, 4 means 20 free spins and if it’s your lucky day you will receive 40 free spins! But you do need 5 free spin symbols for that. If you have 3 or more of these free spin symbols, you can immediately choose a symbol which counts for double. This makes it a bit easier to win a prize. It is also the time to make a strategic choice, will you take a symbol that often occurs and that will give you a great chance of winning? Or will you choose a symbol with the biggest reward, but a smaller chance of winning.
With the Doubles slot you have 243 ways to win! The symbols that are used fit the retro character of this game very well. Like the famous fruit symbols: the grape, lemon, orange, melon and cherry. But also the star, horseshoe, diamond, and the lucky number 7.

We actually like the original choice from Yggdrasil to go with a 90’s retro style. The only drawback we can mention, is the fact that there is no mobile version of Doubles for the smartphone or tablet. After the test, our review team also found that the sound is not working on a MacBook OS X version: El Capitan. When you just want to play through a Windows desktop or a Mac and you do not need sound, experience the Doubles slot by yourself. We from SlotsDaily think it’s a fun game!
