As NetEnt’s new slot machines in 2018 just keep on coming, here’s a first glance at September’s addition – Double Stacks. The game’s appeal looks certainly to lie within its titular feature – where symbols count for double to boost potential – but there’s also the maximum payout mechanic too…
Double Stacks Sees Symbols Multiply by Two
Hit play on the above Double Stacks trailer and you’ll quickly notice how reels draped in the same symbol will double in size.
Then, if you manage to land a winning betline that contains one of these doubled-reels, those particular symbols will count for two.
Even better, it seems as though Wild symbols can be given the Double Stacks treatment during the Free Spins Bonus Round!
It’s not yet confirmed as to whether all icons can be boosted in this way, but we’ll make sure to clear all that up in our NetEnt slot video review of Double Stacks in a few weeks.
What of Those Mysterious Cash Pots at the Top?
Yet, although this eponymous feature heavily influences this slot game, it’s not the only thing that caught our eye.
We’re sure you noticed it the first time, but if you didn’t then you can replay the above video to see how there are four separate cash prizes listed next to the top four paying symbols.
These all form the Maximum Payout – meaning if you manage to cover the entire board with one of those four symbols, you’ll receive the corresponding windfall.
Not bad, eh!?
A Double Stacks Free Spins Round is Included
Finally, we’re rather happy to see a Free Spins Bonus Round packaged with the Double Stacks slot.
It seems as though it’s triggered using the classic format of a minimum of three Scatters appearing across the board – but this can be enhanced if you see four or even five Scatters instead.
Also seen in the preview video is the possibility to add additional free spins to the counter during the bonus round – again by seeing more Scatters land.
