Preview of Double Stacks: A New NetEnt Slot
High speed, fruits and double symbols. - That’s Double Stacks from Netent in five words for you right there. Netent’s take on the classic fruit slot comes with five reels, three rows of symbols, and symbols that double whenever they come stacked. RTP is set at 96.02%, and a medium volatility. We find wild symbols, both during the base game and during free spins which are triggered by the scatter symbols in the game. Look out for stacks of wilds as well during the free spins in double stacks. Netent confirms the release date is on the 24th of september.
Design and Symbols
Double Stacks is a bright and fast-paced video slot, which is very well reflected throughout the game. Symbols have this candy styled theme popping with colours. The symbols are all familiar, like the “BAR” “7” and cherries among others. On top of the reels, we find the higher paying symbols with an amount next to them. These are not to be confused with jackpots though, as they are merely an indication on max potential win should you get a full reel set with the adjacent symbol. The sounds in Duoble Stacks are so-so. It’s quite generic and can remind you a bit about a toned down version of the sounds in hotline from the same developer.
One of the main features in the game revolves around the name, Double Stacks. You will notice that the symbols in the game comes stacked. Whenever they fill a reel, they will double, effectively doubling the payout for that symbol should it land on a winning line. Beyond that we find a scatter symbol and a wild symbol in the game.
Land three scatter symbols to receive five free spins.
- Get 15 when you land 4
- Get 30 if you are lucky enough to land a scatter symbol on every reel.
During the free spins, all higher paying symbols appear stacked. In addition, you will be glad to find stacked wilds, and a higher frequency of normal wilds as well.
The scatter symbols are also in play during free-spins, and if you get two or more you will receive some extra spins.
- 2 Scatter symbols = 2
- 3 Scatter symbols = 5
- 4 Scatter symbols = 4
- 5 Scatter symbols = 30
All in all, we find the features ok for a low volatile slot. - The “jackpots” on top might a slightly miss leading in some ways, as I was honestly expecting some kind of minigame to release the prizes.
Our thoughts on Double Stacks
The low volatility and high potential of free-spins give a potential of loads of spins for the buck in this game. That said,with a max potential of 1000x if you fill the reels with the highest paying symbol, don't be expecting huge winnings any time soon. The game pops and if you are a fan of a high-speed video slot with loads of free spins, this game should be just up your alley.
