Double Wammy Slot

Looking for a retro style slot machine with a little touch of class and sparkle? Double Whammy might be right up your street with its 3-reels of timelessly traditional slot machine icons and effortlessly straightforward spinning action.

The game by Microgaming has only 1 payline, meaning that players will have to make the most of every win that comes along, especially considering that there isn't anything too spectacular in the bonus gameplay department. There is, however, the chance to increase your wins with a simple wild icon which could double or quadruple your prize money. How about that for some wammy to boost your betting balance?

Spins that sparkle

Slot machines come in all shapes and sizes. Some games out there offer 5-reels of intense narrative based action and huge progressive jackpot potentials, there are even some video slots out there which offer more than 5 reels as well as newfangled and complicated bonus features.

Double Wammy, on the other hand, takes its spinners right back to the basics of the slot machine format with 3 reels that revolve around some timeless classics of the genre. We're talking about bright red cherry symbols, single, double and triple BAR icons as well as some lucky red 7s, just for good vintage measure. The game does have one other symbol which is depicted by a “Double Wammy” logo with two diamond icons to add a touch of glitz and glam to the proceedings.

All thrills, no frills

Graphically speaking, this simple slot machine doesn't offer anything of a magnificently innovative or mind-blowing nature. But you probably could have guessed that from the fact that it is a 3-reel slot machine. The truth is that Double Wammy doesn't really need to go overboard on the design front, because the vast majority of its players are in it purely for the thrill of the spinning action and the chance to win some prizes. Plus, the fact that the game is rendered in basic two dimensions only helps to add to the retro charm which so many punters crave.

Put some wammy in the kitty

In many ways, this slot machine is incredibly easy to get the hang of. There are only 3 reels, just 1 payline, and a small amount of wagering options with coins such as: 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00 and 5.00. However, things doe get a bit interesting when it comes to deciding whether to play with 1, 2, or 3 coins on the game's single payline. Let us explain.

As you can see, the game screen of Double Wammy includes its own paytable of potential prizes for each winning combination with three columns - “1st Coin”, “2nd Coin” and “3rd Coin”. Ostensibly, it would appear that playing with 2 or 3 coins as opposed to 1 coin would be more lucrative since there are higher payouts listed in those columns. However, that is not necessarily the case as the prizes shown are actually proportional in their payout values in relation to the size of the total bet. So, for example, three cherries will award a 10x total bet multiplier no matter how many coins are placed.

The only instance in which the prize awarded is not proportional to the total bet is when 3 coins are placed and a line of three “Double Wammy” logos appear. That is because the prize awarded for this combination of symbols is slightly higher when 3 coins are played as opposed to 1 or 2 coins, as you can see in the paytable below:

Wild wins

There may not be any free spins, bonus sideshows or progressive jackpots available in this simple classic by Microgaming. However, spinners can make the most of one helpful bonus feature – a wild symbol which will multiply the value of normal wins whenever it substitutes for other icons to complete a line win. This wild icon is represented by the “Double Wammy” logo and it will double or quadruple the value of wins when one or two are brought into play respectively. This wild icon will not substitute for a single cherry.

A touch of class

There are loads of classic slot machines out there in the world of online gambling. So, the question is, does this game stand out from the rest? Well, not really, in truth. The game takes after a fairly standard gameplay pattern and design style that has been used time and time again by Microgaming, so you're not going to find anything particularly new or interesting while spinning the reels. Nonetheless, if you do happen to stumble upon the game and decide to give it a go, then you won't be too disappointed by the prize winning potential and retro charm.
