Yggdrasil Gaming decided to devote their newest product to the never-ending battle of fire and ice presented through Fire Dragon and Ice Dragon.
Dragons have been used in many cultures and folk tales as symbols of strength and power and you will get your chance to witness the power of these magnificent mythological creatures once you trigger the very interesting additional features incorporated in this five-reel slot that offers 20 fixed paylines.
The reels are set high on a mountaintop where the battle of night and day, fire and ice is taking place. The soundtrack is quite similar to those used in Game of Thrones, or Lord of the Rings, and it brings up the tension as you keep spinning the reels.
Despite the fact that Yggdrasil Gaming is somewhat new in the online gambling industry, the company is rapidly becoming popular among gamers worldwide due to the fact that they offer some amazing video slots, which are a perfect combination of state-of-the-art technology and very interesting special features.
The company was founded in 2013 and is based in Malta, with a major development office in Krakow. After releasing the Monkey King and the Legend of the White Lady, Yggdrasil decided to create yet another mythology-themed slot called Double Dragons.
How To Play It
Once again Yggdrasil Gaming did a remarkable job concerning the overall visual appearance, due to some top-notch graphics, very good animations and an outstanding soundtrack. High paying symbols are represented as dragon eyes and you will come across Purple Eye, Red Eye, Blue Eye and Green Eye.
Low paying symbols are gem-looking card suits. There are also two types of Wilds, the Blue one and the Red one. Dragon Heads may appear on those Wilds as well.
The Fire Dragon is a Wild which can convert up to 3 regular symbols into Wilds once it appears on the reels. The Ice Dragon serves as a multiplier that will multiply the Dropdown Win by x2.
Double Dragons is a five-reel slot with 20 fixed paylines, meaning that you have to bet 20 coins each spin. The coin value goes from $0.01 to $5. The minimum wager you can place is $0.20, while the maximum bet is $100, which will please a wide range of gamers.
Paylines pay left to right starting from the leftmost reel, and at least a three-of-a-kind combination is needed to start winning.
The 2016 release is packed with special features. The first we will mention is the Dropdown Win. Thanks to this feature, after every winning, the winning symbols will disappear, making room for new symbols to drop in and possibly form a new winning combination.
If you succeed in forming four consecutive dropdown wins, you will trigger the Double Dragons feature and release the dragons, which will award you with 2 Highstack Wilds that may be up to 15 symbols long. Basically, two reels will turn into Wilds and they might help gamers land some rewarding payouts, especially if several consecutive winnings are landed.
As mentioned above, dragon heads can come on some of the Wilds once you landed them. Apart from having the described functions, both Ice Dragon and fire Dragon heads are stored on the right side of the screen.
Once you store nine dragon heads, you will be awarded with nine free spins, during which more dragon heads appear than in the base game. Free Spins feature is crucial for winning hefty payouts, because you can get loads of Wilds and multipliers during freebies.
When it comes to maximum payouts, in Double Dragons slot you may win 80,000 coins per single spin. If we did our math right, you could land as much as $400,000 with just one spin, provided you placed the maximum wager of $100.
In reality, hefty payouts can be expected during free spins, since you will get many Wilds and a decent amount of multipliers due to the fact that both Ice Dragon and Fire Dragon heads appear more often than during base game.
Judging from the released demo, it seems that Yggdrasil Gaming has done it again, since they got it all wrapped up and tied with a bow with Double Dragons slot. Amazing graphics, awesome soundtrack and more than enough special features to chain you down to your seat for hours.
However, you should bear in mind that dragons are not very fond of sharing their treasures, so it may occur that you can spend much of your time and money without being rewarded with a proper win, but if you are patient enough, you just might be successful and take some of that wealth home.
