ALL ABOUT DOUBLE STACKS SLOT
NetEnt might be one of the most popular game studios on the planet but they have come into a lot of criticism over the years for producing light weight slots with low variance and low potential. Too much Starburst and not enough Dead or Alive.
Of course, its horses for courses but here at The Slot Buzz we like our games to pack a punch and offer some real thrills. And that means something that can offer a decent payout. That’s why we’re intrigued by news of NetEnt’s latest release, Double Stacks.
Fans of Twin Spin and the recent BerryBurst will love the bright colors and old skool fruit-machine vibe of Double Stacks. But what’s more exciting is the wild stacks and the free spins round that can push massive wins with over 30 plays available, each with stacked wilds on the reels.
It looks and sounds sharp, and it has potential. So let’s find out more …
Double Stacks Game Set Up
This is a 5 reel and 3 row game with 10 fixed paylines. The vibe is definitely old skool with fruits, bars and bells on a brightly colored reel set. You can spin Double Stacks from 10p up to £200 per spin.
Double Stacks Game Symbols
The low value symbols in Double Stacks are the fruits – the watermelons, lemons, plums and cherries. There are also four premium symbols – these are the 7s, bars, bells and diamonds. The latter pays out the highest return at 4.5x for five on a payline. All these premium symbols will come stacked, giving you the chance to fill the screen with diamonds for the top payout of 1,000x per spin.
Look out as well for the Wilds that substitute for all other symbols bar the scatter, and the scatter itself which is needed to trigger free spins.
Double Stacks Features
Double Stacks – If you land a reel with a full stack showing then each symbol will count twice in creating paylines.
Free Spins – You can score up to 30 free spins in Double Stacks. To do so you’ll need to land 5 scatters on the reels in one go. 3 scatters will get you 5 free spins and 4 scatters gets you 15 free spins.
During the free spins round not only do premium symbols come in stacks, but Wilds do as well. You can also trigger more free spins by landing additional scatters – 2 gets you 2 free spins, 3 gets you 5 free spins, 4 gets you 15 free spins, and 5 gets you 30 free spins.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
Double Stacks might be one of NetEnt’s better releases this year. It’s a pretty straight forward slot with a slick, retro look, but where it really kicks on is with the stacks of premium symbols in the base game, and wilds in the free spins round. It may be medium variance but a good run in the bonus game could land you some serious payouts here, so we’re recommending this one to all slots players.
