Ainsworth’s Twice the Money slot is not the most popular of their titles, although to be fair, it is hard to come across at most online casinos.
This is a gold-themed video slot, but you couldn’t really tell by looking at the imagery on the reels.
True, there is a rather nice gold backdrop, and you get quite a bit of mileage out of the scatter symbols in this slot, but it can hardly be compared to the bit BetSoft Gaming and Microgaming slots with the same theme.
Twice the Money’s title also doesn’t really make sense. We’ve been through all the features; all the imagery and the title’s meaning is somewhat lost on us.
As for the developers, Ainsworth remains one of the smaller scale developers of online slots, despite their huge presence in the land-based casino world.
Twice the Gold has been designed to be mobile-friendly, so it may win a few fans in that regard, but there are better, more gold-related slots out there on the net, and they easily match Twice the Money in virtually all departments. This is not one of the strongest efforts from Ainsworth by any means.
How to play it
Twice the Money offers players a very basic wagering range. As we’ve touched on, this slot has been designed to be used by mobile slot lovers, so the buttons are big, bold and bulky. Players can use the buttons to adjust any of the slot’s 30 lines, and the values of their coins.
Twice the Money comes with a minimum bet which is fixed at $0.30 per spin. At its costliest, you can expect to be able to wager as much as $100 a pop on this slot machine. That’s a relatively fair wagering range, but again there are other slots with larger and more flexible wagering ranges than Twice the Money.
How much can you win?
If your luck is in, you could potentially win as much as 300,000 coins in all. You will need to be playing with the maximum wager to pocket that cash prize, though. For all intents and purposes, the standard non-progressive jackpot is fixed at 100x your total bet.
Players are going to need to land 5 of the golden nugget symbols on any active line to win that cash prize, which won’t be easy, to say the least.
Play For Real Money Twice the Money Slot With These Bonuses:
Wild symbols: Twice the Money uses dynamite as its wild symbols. These symbols can substitute for all other icons in the game, except for the golden nugget scatter icons. Wild symbols cannot offer you cash prizes, which is a bit of a shame since that seems commonplace in most slots now. However, wilds can boost your wins in the free spins feature.
Scatter symbols: Twice the Money’s scatter symbols are represented by the golden nugget symbol as we’ve said. These scatters are virtually the only proper gold-themed symbol to appear in the game, and they can show up on all the reels.
Land 3 or more of these to trigger the slot’s singular bonus feature, or land 5 of them to win the non-progressive jackpot carried by the game, as mentioned earlier.
Free spins bonus: This slot’s single bonus round is a free spins feature. As we’ve said, you’ll need 3 golden nugget symbols to trigger it. Once it is activated, players will get to play with whole new symbols (well, they are the same but they are worth more).
Players will also get to prosper from multipliers which are added to the wild symbols. During the bonus round, any wins you pocket which features wilds could be boosted by multipliers which include 2x, 4x, and 8x in total.
The wild multipliers in the free spins feature are easily the best aspect of this otherwise rather disappointing slot machine game.
Overall experience and final thoughts
To be honest, we’d give this one a miss. Ainsworth has released better slots than this, and no amount of mobile compatibility is going to save this one. Given what we’ve seen, there is no surprise that Twice the Money isn’t the hit we were expecting.
There are better gold-themed slots out there on the net which offer you a lot more bounce for your buck. We don’t want to sound too harsh, but pretty much any one of the Microgaming, Playtech or BetSoft gold-themed slots will trump this game, which is mediocre at best.
