We’ve spent a few weeks looking at some of the different key terms that you’ll need to know in order to...

Included within our NetEnt slots in 2018 article is the September scheduled Double Stacks game, but it deserves a piece all to itself. That’s the official day after summer ends, so could we see a new set of features to spice up the casino fun? The Double Stacks slot title suggests it’s a very real possibility…
So, what does the name Double Stacks mean to us? Of course, this article is purely conjecture at the time of writing and in no way foreshadows what’s to come – but we thought we’d have a crack at it all the same.
We won’t lie though, our imaginations immediately wandered to two NetEnt features merged into one…
The first is the Stacked variation of Wild symbols that we’ve seen in a number of NetEnt works over the years. This is where more than one adjacent symbol positions on a row or reel (but usually the latter) are taken over by Wilds – with often entire rows or reels covered. See above for an example.
The second part is the linked spinning reels feature that was introduced in the popular Twin Spin slot. Whenever a round began, at least two adjacent reels would turn together to guarantee the same symbol across both columns – boosting your chances of a win. For a quick demonstration, you can play Twin Spin slot for free to check it out now.
So, what do you get when you combine Stacked Wilds with the Twin Reel spin feature – Double Stacks!
Okay, it’s not the most foolproof logic – with Twin Stacks obviously being more appropriate – but surely whatever NetEnt have planned will be done twice.
With a Monday 24th September 2018 release set for Double Stacks slot by NetEnt, we’re guessing a preview will land in early August to test our theory. We’ll make sure to bring it to your attention as soon as the teaser trailer is uploaded, followed by its addition to our NetEnt slot video reviews soon after.
All new NetEnt brings with it casino free spins, and Double Stacks won’t buck this trend.
So, on Monday 24th September, expect a number of options to get your Double Stacks free spins bonus.
As NetEnt’s Double Stacks slot is a few months off at the time of writing, there are other sources of iGaming entertainment to pass the time.
