Update: Out now to play at LeoVegas mobile casino »
Yggdrasil Gaming will be releasing a brand new slot machine on the 22nd of September. We take a quick insider look at whether it will double your wins or double your troubles.
We love getting details of new casino games, and the Double Dragon slot tingled our senses the moment we heard about the which video slot software was giving it to us, and some of the images and features.
Because if there’s one thing that wets our appetite, it’s Yggdrasil slot games.
And whilst mostly they create simple games, like the Legend of The White Lady mobile slot, sometimes they make things a little more complicated, but no less interesting.
That’s exactly what we are getting with this Double Dragon game.
A fair bit actually. We even have some images to show you, with some of the more exciting features on show.
Plus a total 200 free spins (250 for the UK) before and after your first deposit!
Sure, the name sounds like a bad 90s movie… wait a minute… it totally is a bad 90s movie! And it’s got none other than Robert Patrick, AKA the T1000 in Terminator 2, as the evil blonde(ish) gang leader.
God we love random moments of movie recollection.
But no, this is nothing like that, children of the 90s. Apologise if we got you excited. This is as opposite of that as it comes.
This isn’t quite as beautiful as we’d have hoped, but still highly detailed.
You’d think, considering the ‘Double Dragon slot’ title of this Yggdrasil machine, that there would be more dragons on the five reels.
But instead you get the typical hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs, and then… dragon eyes? Dragon talisman? Dragon clocks? Not 100% sure what those are suppose to be.
Basically generic symbols of different colours. Which is a little disappointing. If there is anything that Yggdrasil is good at doing is creating beautiful immersive slot themes.
Even the Seasons slot, with it’s cartoony style, has more interesting symbols. That said, you can’t deny the background and decorations are gorgeous to look at.
Lets hope the animations makes this Double Dragon slot game more interesting when playing.
By our count there are four types of wilds here.
That’s a whole load of slot wilds. Enough, in fact, to make this game very interesting indeed.
Cascading wins seem to be popular recently, Microgaming only just released their pretty Jungle Jim El Dorado game.
But whilst that machine was just a copy of Gonzo’s Quest, this Double Dragon online slot tries to do something a little different with the cascading reels.
It’s all down to that Double Dragon feature we were talking about a moment ago. That’s what caught our attention enough to write this mobile slot preview and bring our level of interest from ‘meh’ to ‘intriguing’.
We do not get intrigued a lot by new slot games. Mostly, we can look at what we are about to get and take a good educated guess whether we are going to like it or not.
Look at the upcoming Motorhead slot, for example. That’s going to be somewhere in the middle of the range, fun but not earth shattering.
Double Dragon, on the other hand, has a feature intriguing enough that we won’t be able to tell you if we like the game until we play it.
Unlike the likes of Gonzo’s Quest or Cool Wolf slot, these cascading reels won’t give you multiplier on each win.
Instead, whilst winning symbols will disappear, and more will come cascading down from above, you’ll need 4 cascades to trigger a bonus feature.
This adds 2 stacks of wilds on screen.
The reason it makes it interesting is because if those stacks are in the right position, and you can get as many as 28 high stacks, you can get a whole cascade of wins, after wins, after wins.
Of course, it won’t be until we play it that we’ll find out how easy it is to get those cascades. In Yggdrasil’s Incinerator slot, for example, they were relatively easy to get.
But then, that was a fairly low variance slot machine.
This Double Dragon mobile game, on the other hand, aims a little higher, with 800 times your bet available on one spin, or one massive cascade of wins.
Not as high as some, but high enough to make us hope that we will catch that Double Dragon slot feature often enough to make things interesting.
We suspect these cascades will be more like the Pixies of the Forest mobile slot; slow, with many dead spins, until you suddenly catch a chain reaction to die for.
Lots of great casinos on Android and iOS will host Double Dragon come the 22nd of September 2016.
Our favourite has to be Vera & John casino, as you get an exclusive bonus of 10 free spins no deposit + 100% up to £€$200 first deposit bonus.
That said, UK players won’t be able to see Yggdrasil games at that casino, and V&J no longer accept Australian casino players. So this is for Europeans only.
But don’t worry, we have a brilliant alternative for Aussie and UK gamblers, namely the always fun Leo Vegas casino, who do have an Yggdrasil license available for all countries.
And you get a decent 20 free spins no deposit (50 if you’re in the UK) followed by a 200% bonus and 180 free spins.
Plenty to keep you busy till the 22nd of September. Our recommendation? Start with Yggdrasil’s latest, the Big Blox mobile slot, which is big, bold, and for the brave.Start Playing at Leo Vegas »
