Travel to the metropolis on the Huangpu River in Double Bang Crackers. The game impresses with a Chinese theme and double symbols. Here you will benefit from stacked and double premiums and wilds. The free spins you can re-trigger indefinitely and pocket up to 1,000 times your stake.
NetEnt is the creator of this slot, which is planned for the 19th of March 2020. It is suitable for all kinds of players as the bet level allows for smaller and larger bankrolls. Thanks to the appearance of double and stacked symbols you can win from 10 of a kind combinations. This is possible for the premium and wilds, which you can also land stacked on the reels.
This game is inspired by Double Stacks, which was released in 2018. The original slot can’t boast with quite a success. Double Bang Crackers has 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 fixed pay-lines. To win you need to match 3 to 5 symbols on a line from left to right. You can take part in the reel adventure with wagers from 0.10 to 200 credits per spin. The slot has a medium level of volatility and an RTP of 96.10%.
Double Bang Crackers includes double symbols for the 4 premiums and wilds. The premiums appear stacked in all stages of the gameplay and wilds too, but only during free spins. The top payout is from a full screen of the gong or wild when they land as double symbols. This results in 1,000 times your stake or £200,000 for those using the highest stake.
The game uses Shanghai Pudong’s district as the horizon on the backdrop. The grid is semi-transparent and reveals the rest of the city. You will see skyscrapers and tall buildings. Pudong is famous for being a satellite district. The city was built on the opposite position of the Huangpu river on drained swampland.
Today it is a lively area with all kinds of family attractions. There are many high office buildings and it houses the tallest TV tower worldwide. On the dark reels, you will see card symbols styled plainly in different colours. There are also red packets, drums, gongs and fans. The graphics are simple and clean in the Eastern style and bright colours.
The symbols are 8 in total and the J to A card royals are the low-value ones as usual. They can give you from 2 times your stake for 5 of a kind to 6 times your bet for 9 of a kind. Scoring wins from 9 of a kind card symbols is possible thanks to the presence of double wilds as parts of the combinations.
Only the premiums and wilds can land as double symbols. This creates the potential for 10 of a kind paying combos. The drums, red packets, gongs and fans reward with 3 to 9 times your stake for 5 of a kind.
Double symbols can make 10 of a kind wins that pay from 10 to 100 times your bet. The best paying symbol is the gong and it brings from 10 to 100 times your stake for 5 to 10 symbols of a kind. This is the payout of the wild as well.
In the base game, only the 4 premium symbols land appear stacked. In free spins, the wild symbols can also land stacked. Landing a full stack of any symbol on any reel doubles the symbols and they pay as 6 of a kind instead of 3 of a kind. This way one symbol counts as 2 and only 1 more of the same kind is necessary to complete a winning line. If you get 5 double symbols on a full pay-line you win as 10 of a kind.
Hitting 3, 4 or 5 scatters in one spin anywhere on the grid triggers 5, 15 or 30Free Spins, respectively. You can re-trigger then indefinitely. If you get from 2 to 5 scatters during any of the free spins, you will add 2 to 30 more free spins to the ones you get left.
The wild symbol appears stacked and it doubles when it covers a whole reel. This way, you can score max payouts from 10 of a kind of the best paying symbol, as the wild rewards the same as the top player. Thanks to this feature, you can pocket 1,000 times your stake during free spins more easily. This is so as there are double chances to score wins from the best paying symbols – from the gong and wild. Both of them appear stacked and double when covering a whole reel.
The original slot, which Double Bang Crackers was inspired from, didn’t impress the casino community. Yet, the follow-up might be more successful. It is not aimed at high rollers so, newbies and ordinary players can find it fun.
The max win of 1,000 times your stake is not bad and with a wager of £200 per spin, this can result in £200,000. You can try the slot in March and see for yourself if this is your type of game.
