Double Dragons is a beautifully designed, fantasy themed video slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. It’s played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine and comes with Dropdown Win technology where successful combinations are blasted from the reels and replaced by the symbols above to give a second shot at winning. Also on offer are stacked wilds and free spins. Play, on all devices, from between 20p and £100 per spin.

Video slots from Yggdrasil Gaming are usually among the best designed you’ll see and once again the Scandi developer hasn’t let us down – joining the heart, diamond, club and spade symbols are green, blue, amber and purple dragon eyes. Whenever a winning line is created, those symbols are blasted away with new symbols dropping in their place. These symbol drops continue as long as a new winning combination is created.

4 successive Dropdown Wins triggers the Double Dragons feature which adds 2 stacked wilds to the reels. These can reach up to 28 symbols in length and certainly boost your winning chances.

The dragon’s head symbol is the wild, replacing all other symbols. The dragon’s head also has some magical powers – if you land a fire dragon, it will breathe out flames to convert 2 or 3 other symbols into wilds. The ice dragon multiplies the Dropdown win by 2 and doubles the payout.

Every time you land a dragon’s head, it will be collected in a meter to the side of the reels. Once you have collected 9 of either dragon, you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and be awarded 9 free spins. Extra wilds are added to the reels here. You only need 2 successive wins to trigger the Double Dragons feature too which further increases your winning opportunities.

Yggdrasil Gaming is rapidly building a reputation for creating superbly designed and highly playable slots – Double Dragons will further embellish that lofty reputation as it’s a cracking game. Easy on the eye and featuring a sweeping soundtrack, it has a real epic feel. The features stack up very well too, offering plenty of high octane action.

The variance here is in the medium to high range. The free spins aren’t the easiest to trigger but can certainly deliver when they do hit. Likewise, the Double Dragons feature where the 2x multiplier really moves things along. There’s an impressive 800 times your stake available to be won each spin!

There’s much to enjoy in Double Dragons. With great design and fine features, these mythical creatures can deliver some very real entertainment. If you like the theme, I recommend you try WMS’ Viking Vanguard.
