Double Happiness slot - Free Play - Game Review
Double Happiness is a Video Slot from Aristocrat Gaming Technologies, and much like many of their recent games, it’s a Video Slot that takes you around the world; this time, placing you in China, and the beautiful Asian realms.
Featuring a very interesting bonus round, the game is comprised of a classic 5-reel design, with three rows and 25 fixed pay lines making up the structure.
While the fixed pay line structure means you – unfortunately – can’t vary the pay line number you play, this generally doesn’t really matter is it means you will always be playing the maximum number of lines on offer.
Double Happiness is designed to look as pretty as it sounds; you’ll be greeted by a warm, aesthetic look, with the Chinese theme very prominent throughout.
Symbol-wise, you’ll see the traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace), as well as high-value symbols which include Fire Crackers, a Drum, a Fan-Wielding Monk, and Chinese Lanterns.
The wild symbol present is a Golden Dragon, and this substitutes for all symbols, aside from the scatter feature.
The free-spins round is triggered by landing 3 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view, and this allows you to enter the free spins bonus.
When this happens, you’ll be awarded either 10, 15, or 25 free spins, dependant on whether you landed 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols respectively. During the free spins, you’ll see what are known as “Roaming Wilds” appear, and these are basically wild symbols that stay for two spins.
They randomly move around the screen, allowing you to make decent 4-of-a-kind and 5-of-a-kind pay lines you get them in the right places.
You can also re-trigger the free-spins round by landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters during the free-spins gameplay.
There also exists a gamble feature, which allows you to double, or quadruple your win, up to five times. This acts as a classic red/black/suit pick, with the red or black option giving you odds of 1/1, and the suit-picking option giving you odds of 3/1.
Double Happiness isn’t yet optimised specifically for mobile players, but iOS, Android, and Windows players report that they are able to play the game from their phones and smart-tablet devices, so while there’s no guarantees… you’ll probably be OK.
Pros: Double Happiness is fun, exciting, and unique – it’s new, so you’ll want to check it out!
Cons: finding the game may prove hard as of now – it’s not yet available at a HUGE range of online casinos, but that’s sure to change as the game becomes more popular.
