Where to play?
With 5 reels and 20 paylines Yggdrasil Gaming presents Double Dragons. This video slots is flushed with dragons, a free spins mode, wilds and a sound track that sounds a lot like The Lord of the Rings. The theme of the slots covers all manner of dragons be it your fiery or ice dragon and comes with a Double Dragons and Dragon Heads feature too. From the looks of things Yggdrasil certainly pulled out all the stops with this one and it might be that elusive money-printing game I’ve been looking for. Set against the backdrop of the reels is a snowy mountain cap.
The top jackpot is 150 coins-yup that’s it but it does come with a respectable average return to player (RTP) payout of 96.5%. Symbols that appear on the reels are different coloured dragon eyes (purple, blue, orange and green), wilds, a free spins mode and card symbols. From a visual point of view the graphics and animations are crisp and a feast to the eye. The game fits the screen of mobile devices and playable on desktops for free or for real cash.
Before you start hunting for dragons and the riches they offer upon the reels, select the coin denomination that fits your budget best. The reels can be spun from £$0.20 up to £$100. The usual customization options like audio, coin range, Auto Play and graphics settings allows you to tinker the game that suits your style of play.
Okay let’s be honest here, here be dragons. The reason why I’m saying this is because there’s a dragonlicious (don’t think there’s such a word) 4 bonus rounds. To me the slots cuts both ways: It pays well during the base game and pays out spectacular during the bonus games. However, don’t expect wins on every single spin, it pays out on every 4 to 7 spins.
Winning symbols disappear and are replaced by new ones, this can go on for quite some time but the beauty of it all is that they keep on coming (up to 15 symbols long). If you hit 4 consecutive wins the Double Dragons feature is triggered unleashing the dragons. This is where the fat cash lurks because 2 Highstacked wilds are added to each reel.
During the feature the Fire Dragon turns 3 symbols into wilds while the Ice Dragon doubles the Dropdown wins (2x multiplier). Once again kudos to Yggdrasil for coming up with this novel streak.
The free spins feature is unlike any I’ve seen before. It’s triggered once you’ve collected 9 Dragon heads of the same kind-you’ll win 9 free spins for your effort. Wins during the free spins are boosted when the Dragon wilds pitch. Nine might sound like a lot of Dragon heads but the beauty of it all is that you collect them during the base game-you’ll see a screen to the right of the reels where the heads are stored.
With a couple of strapping bonus games interspersed with wilds and a unique free spins feature, Yggdrasil’s Dragon Wilds deserves a pin in it. I really enjoyed playing the game, but it takes some work to get those free spins going; it’s a medium to high variance slots where you can win as much as 800 times your stake on a single spin. The largest win I recorded was 60x my stake which was during the Dragon Heads feature since the Ice Dragon (wild) doubles all wins (2x multiplier).
