BetSoft are the creators of the Double Sixteen slot machine. BetSoft have been creating slots since 1999 and offer something to suit every type of slots player with varying budgets. So, what do you get with the Double Sixteen slot game? Well, if you love to play classic slots, you will love this one.
Double Sixteen aims to offer something more than just your classic slot machine and on first impressions it does exactly that. The slot machine is styled on a real slot machine, so you will find the silver metal frame surrounding the machine with various buttons stamped to the lower of the machine.
Your first set of reels are situated to the lower machine with paylines highlighted in individual section to the left and right. Your paytable of symbols and cash values is sitting next to the reels with your betting options flashing to the lower of the reels.
The top machine offers another set of reels with a win panel and total panel. To the right of the upper reels are 10 individual meters, when you win, the winning values will be shown via the meters.
Selecting your bets may see like a complicated thing to do, but you simply select; start bet 5 for 4 paylines (this costs 5.00), start bet 10 for 8 paylines (this costs 10.00), start bet 20 for 16 paylines (this costs 20.00) or start bet 40 for all 32 paylines (this costs 40.00). Symbols on the reels are treasure chests, single bars, watermelons, strawberries, plums, grapes, lemons and oranges.
Big Winning Potential
You can get your hands on a 200 coins, just spin in four of a kind of the treasure symbols to trigger that jackpot cash prize. There are only one other high value symbols, this is the single bars with 120 coins. All other symbols award between 40 and 80 coins.
You won’t find any slot bonus features to this game unfortunately, what you see is what you get – base game wins. There are no wilds, scatters, free spins or anything to offer – this is because it’s a classic fruit machine with double the action.
Looking for a Classic
If you prefer the thrill of classic fruit machines, there are literally thousands to choose from online. One of the most popular retro themed slots is Break Da Bank from Microgaming. There are 3 reels and 5 paylines allowing you to play between 25.00 and 125.00. You are required to try and break into the vault to trigger the big cash jackpot on offer – there’s a top base game win of 2,400 coins up for grabs.
Twice the Fun
Double Sixteen is quite a complicated slot game to understand at first. When we stumbled upon the slot, we were left wondering how to play and what the two reels actually offered. The meters to the top right have no real impact on the game, they are there to highlight how you’ve won – but in our opinion you don’t even need these as you can see how much you’ve won via the win panel.
Selecting your bet is the easiest thing you can do, just press once on your desired bet and press again to activate the spin. Double Sixteen is a medium to high variance slot which offers twice the fun of your usual classic fruit machine, but you only get base game wins when you match 4 of a kind. We struggle to see how this slot game can keep players entertained for long periods of time.
