In the style of Twin Spin™, Twin Spin Deluxe™, Joker Pro™, and Dazzle Me™, it was in September 2018 that NetEnt added the Double Stacks™ slot to its wide range of NetEnt slots. Like all of these NetEnt slots, Double Stacks™ is offering a classic-themed game with a modern gameplay. However, NetEnt introduced a new innovation to the game. At first sight, you’ll believe this game is offering some sort of non-progressive jackpots, but when you get to know the game, or simply by reading this Double Stacks™ slot review, you’ll soon find out that these amounts are related to the Double Stacks feature. Keep on reading to find out what this Double Stacks feature is all about and what else to expect when you select the Double Stacks™ slot as your next NetEnt game.
Classic-themed video slot
I always start a slot review with a video slot intro after which I start to describe the video slot. Unfortunately, it’s pretty hard to come up with a video slot description as this NetEnt slot is all about the Double Stacks™ slot feature. And as mentioned before, all you can expect from its design is a mix of classic slot symbols, a superstar Wild, and shiny Scatter.
When a bunch of classic slot symbols is brought to the reels, it often means you can look forward to fruit symbols such as lemons, melons, plums, and the famous cherry symbol and the Double Stacks™ slot is no exception. And to add to the classic slot experience, the 7 symbol, BAR symbol, Diamond symbol, and liberty bell symbol return to the reels as well.

Regarding the betting options, Double Stacks™ doesn’t differ much from a standard NetEnt slot with ten different bet levels and eight coin values available. I do believe that careful players will enjoy the minimum bet of 0.10 while high rollers might find the Double Stacks™ slot interesting enough for its 200.00 bet, the highest available. If 0.10 is too low and 200.00 a bit too high, you can always use the different coin values and levels to get to a more comfortable bet.
Double Stack™ slot features
Twin Spin™, Twin Spin Deluxe™, Joker Pro™, Dazzle Me™, and Double Stacks™ all have a lot in common. Besides their design, they all have just a few slot features available as well. The same goes for NetEnt slots like Starburst™ and Berryburst™ which are praised for the one main feature available. Double Stacks™, though, has been enriched with two slot features, the Double Stacks™ feature and the Free Spins feature.
It’s obvious where the Double Stacks™ slot got its name from as the main feature in this video slot carries the same name. And it’s not hard to figure out that this slot feature has something to do with a stack of symbols that gets doubled, but how exactly does this work?
The Double Stacks feature is new and innovative, a typical invention from the talented NetEnt developers. Free Spins, the Wild and the Scatter are pretty traditional and don’t have anything new to offer. They are still a pleasant addition to the game though with the Wild substituting for any other symbol except the Scatter while three or more Scatters are responsible for the activation of the Free Spins feature.
The four highest paying symbols will become Double Stacks when they appear on the reels in the main game. They will only become Double Stacks when they appear stacked on the reels. This means that if one reel in fully covered with the Diamond symbol, the three Diamond symbols will become six Diamonds. In Free Spins the Wilds can also double, potentially creating double the excitement!
The fields at the top of the screen show the maximum cash win for these symbols, this the amount that will be paid out if the entire reel area is filled with the corresponding reel. The higher your bet, the higher the maximum wins will be. The entire reel area covered by Diamonds will end up in the highest maximum payout, but I’m sure you’ll appreciate all maximum payouts available in the Double Stacks™ slot.
While classic-themed, NetEnt didn’t hesitate to add a Free Spins feature as well. Three Scatters will have the honour to activate the Free Spins feature which will result in either 5,15 or 30 free spins depending on the number of Scatters. Two or more Scatters during Free Spins result in an additional 2, 5, 15 or 30 free spins.
