Room to Breathe
One of the main design features of this slot is that it has 243 ways to play, in place of the traditional winlines. As a result, not only do you have more places to move and thus more chances of winning, but you’re also unable to customise your playthrough, a factor some may dislike. However, while you’re restricted in one sense, you’re freed up in another, providing a catch-22 style outcome.
When it actually comes down to landing those wins, although the theory is one of generosity, we found we won no more than usual; there was no revelation or winning time and time again. Having expected to be rolling in dough, we were left disappointed and a lot more sceptical of ways to play titles.
The ways to play isn’t the only design trait that this game has that’s exclusive to this experience – there’s also the Twin Reels Feature. This isn’t one you have to activate, as it operates every time a new spin is started up; what it does is have two reels revealing the same symbols. They become identical twins. You may ask why that’s useful, well, how about the fact that you’re technically more likely to create a winning line if you already have two reels on side.
In addition to this, there’s also more to the feature in that it can expand, turning into triplets and so on. You could end up with a whole grid of twinned images, if you’re lucky enough for that to happen. Our experiences weren’t that rewarding though, in fact, we only ever got one win as a result of this feature; it’s unique, but it doesn’t seem to work out as a well as it should do.
So what else are you going to get besides what we’ve already covered? Seriously, not a lot more. The paytable for Double Cash is surprisingly sparse, meaning that you put down a wager for next to no variance at all. Luckily, you can expel a sigh in relief in knowing that the pay-in isn’t that costly, and so you only lose 0.25 credits if you play for cash.
In reality, we shouldn’t be surprised by this decision by Fugaso, for they’re always tending to produce titles that lack impact and diversity. However, that doesn’t mean we have to be happy at the fact they make filler games rather than substantial ones; it’s like they’re reducing their own worth.
When it comes down to where we stand with Double Cash, we’re on the fence. We’d like to say this is a good title, worthy of a paid playthrough, but if we were you, we’d play for free. After you’ve seen the double reels a couple of times, the novelty of the design fades away, leaving you with nothing but wilds to bring the big bucks in. Hardly the stuff that dreams are made of!
This is by no means the best the brand has to offer, but it’s a good indicator of what you can expect from many of their other activities. Consequently, you’ll be able to work out in short order whether you like what you see or not, which is the one good thing that comes out of playing this slot machine.
