So the interface of Double Wammy is very decent just like the used symbols which are the very common ones what a classic product can offer – cherries, bars, seven and diamonds – and if somehow bell icon would have been integrated we can say that every traditional symbol are available here. Creators used lot of powerful colour tints here which is not too common for mini games but fortunately they did it in reasonable manner so this absolutely don’t decrease the overall visual effects and for me more importantly it isn’t getting eye bothering as the play session progresses. All in all, this is a very correct but average pictorial work with no exceptional or terrible qualities, so basically this is a well playable interface for a land based slot imitation.
Personally, I prefer the one or two coin machines for some reasons and only see advantage of 3 coin slots if the grand prize is way more as if less coin would be used as bet but here the difference is not worth mentioning as the Jackpot of the game is 2500 coins (instead of 2400) if the maximum number of coins are placed. Despite of this fact mostly I use it with 3 coins with the minimum coin denomination of $0.25 because it is in my favoured bet range and I noticed the game is relative more rewarding with 3 coin stake, although I still think it’s obvious there’s a lot of room for improvement in this area and the average winning tendency should be higher. I’m saying this despite the name giving emblem is also working as Wild and doubles the values of wins if it completes a winning combination alone but if two Double Wammy icons arrive on the line it quadruples the winning combination. Unfortunately, unlike other similar slots where Wild is built in, this substituting symbol alone on the payline doesn’t replace the less paying Cherry symbol which is not a good thing at all. Anyway, Cherry does that regardless of what reel it landed on and doubles the coin value.
As I’ve said earlier, my biggest problem concerning this slot is the winning tendency. I’m absolutely not satisfied with the appearance frequency of the winning combination and sadly the slot tends to hide them for very long stretches when the player really can feel as if the money is just thrown out of the window. It still remains true if once I had enough luck to hit the Jackpot and won a little bit more than $600 but generally I believe the slot could be considered as a real good game if and only if this ‘problem’ would be fixed in any way and an average play segment would be more varied and entertaining but until then I guess there’s better alternative for classic slot lovers in Microgaming repertoire.
