Double Happiness sounds like a superb title for a slot game. The title image itself looks dreamlike and delightful, with perhaps a touch of magic in it as well. Does that provide any clues to what we can expect in this game? It comes from SA Gaming and was released just before we wrote this review, so we can confirm this one gives us an Oriental theme. The five reels are set into an Oriental building, and the detail here is second to none.
We don’t get paylines though – instead, there are 243 ways to win. There are some jackpot amounts to the right of the reels too – three of them, each bigger than the one before. You can expect to find the typical A, K, and Q icons on the reels, along with some Chinese-style lettering that is easy to spot as well. The controls are easy to see under the reels, so they shouldn’t give you any concern.
Double Happiness provides a multicolored symbol as the wild, substituting for everything else you may spot in a spin. It only appears on reels two, three, and four, but it can be very useful when it does pop up. So, why the Double Happiness title, you might ask? All is revealed when you realize each spin will see two or more adjacent reels spinning identical symbols into play. This can occur on up to four reels. As such, there is a chance for some wins on every spin if the other reels play ball too.
