NetEnt’s modern classic Double Stacks™ slot now available at the NetEnt Casinos
Many modern-classic themed games have been launched in 2018 already including last month’s Swipe and Roll™ and Berryburst Max™, and now another game of this type is available at the NetEnt Casinos. It’s today that NetEnt is officially launching the Double Stacks™ slot, paying another tribute to the timeless “fruity” slots
Another new fruity “kid on the block”!
If people don’t want to eat their 2 fruits a day, people will get their fruits another way, NetEnt must be thinking. I start to see fruits everywhere when I browse through the long list of NetEnt video slots. Fruit Shop™, Reel Rush™, Fruit Case™, Stickers™, Fruit Spin™, Swipe and Roll™, Go Bananas™, Aloha! Cluster Pays™, Twin Spin™, Twin Spin Deluxe™, Berryburst™ and Berryburst Max™ while Double Stacks™ is making the list of fruity games longer again and I didn’t even mention the old-fashioned classic slot games!
All of these NetEnt slots offer a modern gameplay which means a standard 5×3 layout is available or a similar layout. You’ll also be treated at least 9 win lines or a modern slot mechanism such as 243 Ways to Win or Cluster Pays™.
The reason I call them Fruity slots, is simply because the old-fashioned fruit symbols have been used on the reels. These fruit symbols, often cherries, oranges, plums, lemons, grapes, melons, and sometimes pineapples as well, were some of the first symbols available in a classic slot machine. It was either the fruit symbols slot machine creators used or card symbols like hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs.
In 2018, these fruit symbols are still loved by video slot developers with a wide range of fruity slots as a result. Alone this year, five fruity games have been launched by NetEnt starting with Twin Spin Deluxe™ in January and followed by Fruit Spin™ (February), Swipe and Roll™ and Berryburst™ (August), and the Double Stacks™ slot as the new fruity “kid on the block”!
Double Stacks™ slot release
In the style of Twin Spin™, Twin Spin™ Deluxe, and Joker Pro™, the Double Stacks™ slot is offering a classic-themed video slot with a modern gameplay which has been enriched with Wild, Free Spins, stacked Symbols, and Double Stacks. It’s now obvious where the Double Stacks™ slot gets its name from.
It’s the Double Stacks feature that has a very important role to play in this new NetEnt slot and it’s not hard to figure out that this slot feature has something to do with stacks of symbols being doubled, but how exactly does this work?
The eponymous Double Stacks feature doubles all stack symbols that land flush in the reel. The four highest paying symbols will become Double Stacks. They will only become Double Stacks when they appear stacked on the reels. This means that if one reel is fully covered with one of the 4 highest paying symbols, these 3 symbols will become 6 symbols.
During the Free Spins feature, however, Wilds can also be doubled up. It’s this innovative slot feature that brings a lot of excitement to the reels. Double Stacks™ presents a visual feast of falling fruit pieces as it focuses on maximizing the excitement of classic 5-reel gameplay.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, says: “We wanted to celebrate the enduring appeal of fruit style video slots and are delighted with the results. The key to Double Stacks™ is ageless simplicity, combined with radiant visuals – we are sure it will be a hit with old school players and newcomers alike.”
