Launched as a Japanese-themed slot machine, Double Bonus is one of many similarly themed games from the Skywind Group. This game offers a generic Japanese culture theme, which is played over 5 reels and a total of 20 paylines. As is often the case with Skywind games, you don’t have room to wiggle with paylines, but you can play a Turbo Mode to speed up gameplay if you wish. Wagers range from just 0.20 per spin up to a considerable 2,000.00 per spin. Few players will be wagering that kind of cash on this kind of slot. Bagging 5 wild symbols in this game is profitable since they are the best-paying symbols in Double Bonus. Landing them on a payline will see you pocket a non-progressive jackpot prize which is capped at 10,000 coins in total.
So, wild symbols can result in players winning non-progressive jackpots. As you well know, though, they can also substitute for other symbols. In fact, they can replace all other symbols save for scatters and flower/pearl symbols.
Scatter icons appear as coins, and these symbols can deliver scattered cash prizes whenever they land anywhere on the reels. Counting no matter where they fall, these symbols can deliver wins worth 5x, 25x or 100x your total bet when 3, 4 or 5 appear on the reels.
The Double Bonus symbols (which appear as flower/pearl icons) can trigger a Double Bonus Round when they show up on both the first and fifth reel at the same time. In this bonus, a dragon will reward you with up to 16 free spins in total. The same dragon can also use a magic lotus flower to multiply any winnings you pocket in this game by up to 16x the normal rate of pay. This is prosperous stuff from Skywind. Two more bonus icons will also retrigger the feature.
One of the more noticeable things about this game is that it is not apparent where the “Double Bonus” part of the title comes from. There aren’t really two bonuses in the game – just the free spin feature and non-bonus triggering scatters. The odd title aside, Double Bonus is still a game which can deliver wins with cheap stakes and that’s all that matters, really.
