Set against a backdrop of graceful Japanese pavilions, Aristocrat’s Double Happiness online slots offers classic slots action enhanced by exciting bonus features. Among these are bonus symbols such as roaming wilds, and free spins.
The theme inspired by the land of the rising sun runs throughout the game, which can, at times, take on the feel of a cultural celebration.
Look and Feel
The brilliant, clear graphics of Double Happiness online slots are underscored by an enchanting soundtrack, and are brought to life in expert animation.
The interface features all the controls players would expect to find on a slot machine. These include buttons to select the number of paylines to be played, the value of the coins, and the amount bet per spin.
Players will also find the all-important Spin button that gets the reels turning, an Auto button to set the game to play itself for a number of spins, the Bet Max button to place the maximum bet and activate all paylines, and the Gamble button, which gives players the chance to double or quadruple their wins.
Double Happiness Slot Reel Symbols
The reels of Double Happiness online slots feature higher value symbols and bonus symbols that are entirely in keeping with the Japanese theme of the game. The lower value symbols, however, are somewhat more sedate.
The higher value symbols include a woman with a fan, lanterns, drums, gongs, and firecrackers, while the bonus symbols take the form of green and red dragon heads, and a red Japanese character. The lower value symbols include the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. This game’s highest paying higher value symbols are the woman, the drum, and the firecrackers.
Double Happiness Scatter Symbol
The red Japanese character is the scatter symbol on the reels of Double Happiness. Three, four, or five of these symbols need to appear anywhere on the reels to activate the Free Spins game.
Three symbols award 10 free spins, four symbols award 15 free spins, and five symbols award 25 free spins.
Two Wild Symbols
The green and red dragon heads are the wild symbols in Double Happiness online slots, and like some wilds in Mac slots, these can go a long way toward making wins.
The green dragon head is the wild in the base game. This symbol can help form winning combinations on the reels by substituting for other symbols. However, it cannot substitute for the scatter symbol. Being a roaming wild, this symbol can move across the reels to form combinations. When it forms part of a combination through substitution, players will receive a re-spin, giving them another chance to win. It will also pay out a high amount if five of these symbols land on the Double Happiness reels.
The red dragon head symbol appears on the reels during the free spins game, which is triggered by the scatter symbol. Here it will act as a regular wild. This means it will also substitute for other symbols to form winning combinations. If five of these appear on the reels, players will win the game’s top payout.
