Double Wammy Slots

Double-WammyDouble Wammy is one of Microgaming’s classic slot machines, a game which manages to give the player a mix of icons that are often found in pub slots, along with one special symbol which just happens to be the most valuable one of the lot. While most of the time the theme is about classic icons, the main symbol includes two diamonds in it, so the Double Wammy title seems to refer to them.

Playing Double Wammy requires you to bet on 1 line, and to spin its 3 reels each round, in the hopes of getting that $12,500 top jackpot. You might get some help from the wild and its multiplier along the way, but not with the big prize.

Features of Double Wammy

A single feature was added to the slot’s reels, but they made it much more important than it is in other classic slot machines. It is a wild symbol that comes with multipliers attached, which is a good thing since the regular symbols don’t have big prizes to give you on their own.

As a wild symbol, the Double Wammy Logo will act on the payline in whatever capacity it is needed. As a wild, it will contribute to new combinations with one or two symbols, the rest of the line needing one regular icon or two matching ones. If only one wild contributes, the multiplier applied to the prize is at 2x. If two wilds do it, they offer a combined multiplier of 4x for that combination’s prize.

Sometimes, though it’s very rare, you will see three wilds on the slot’s only payline, and at that moment you should be jumping up and down for joy. It’s the combo that gives you the 2,500 coins of the top jackpot.

Betting options and jackpots

The use of 1 to 3 coins per round is authorized, while denominations are valued at $0.25 to $5. You can wager a maximum of 3 coins, with a total value of $15.

As for the top prize, if you get three wilds on the payline you will win up to 2,500 coins. That means $12,500.

Design and symbols

The theme of the slot doesn’t manage to stand out, being mostly a classic with a game logo as the only symbol that is different. The background picture shows you the same Double Wammy Logo with diamonds on it, plus a blue background picture with black horizontal lines.

Symbols: Double Wammy Logo (2,500 coins, wild), Red 7 (240 coins), Three Yellow Bar (120 coins), Two Purple Bar (75 coins), One Blue Bar (30 coins) and Cherry (30 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a bit more generous than other 3 reel titles, it has the same features as them though, plus its graphics are nothing to write home about. All in all, I’d pass on it.

The Double Wammy slot machine is offered through the Microgaming platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
