Reflex Gaming haven’t been shy of dipping into the Yggdrasil Gaming bag of tricks to apply some of the team’s most popular mechanics to their own releases. We recently saw this in Desperate Dawgs 2 Gigablox, where the team at Reflex applied the Gigablox mechanic, and Dublin Up DoubleMax – obviously working alongside the DoubleMax mechanic. Now, we’re revising the latter, with Double Lucky Mushrooms DoubleMax – a highly volatile release offering a fixed RTP of 95.50%, and wins up to 19,999x bet.
Visually. it’s all pretty reminiscent of Dublin Up. It’s about as Irish as you can get – like Rainbow Riches, but kicked into high gear. Rainbows, rolling green hills, and some sort of female leprechaun fairy character all go towards this idea, aided by Celtic stylings, mushrooms, and wishing wells. It’s all very cliche, but if Rainbow Riches has shown us anything, it’s that there is definitely a market for this sort of thing. Flute music ties it all together – an expected choice, but a fine one.
Double Lucky Mushrooms DoubleMax Base Features
Taking place across 5 reels, wins are formed on Double Lucky Mushrooms DoubleMax by matching 2 or 3 symbols across adjacent reels, beginning with the leftmost reel, across 1 of 20 fixed win lines. Symbols available begin with non premiums, with Ks, Qs, Js, and As, awarding wins of 0.4x bet for 3 of a kind matches, increasing to wins of 8x bet for 5 of a kind. At the premium end, we have leprechaun hats and mushrooms, awarding wins between 1 and 2x bet for 3 of a kind matches, increasing to values between 10 and 12x bet for 5 of a kind. Double Lucky Mushroom logo images are the final symbol and also the only to pay for 2 of a kind. Land 2, 3, 4, or 5 of these symbols across a win line to see wins of 0.2, 2.5, 5, or 25x bet, respectively. Finally, Wild pots of gold and Clover Super Wilds are available, and substitute for all symbols except Scatters or Free Spin symbols.
There isn’t a great deal happening in the base game of Double Lucky Mushrooms DoubleMax, especially compared to other DoubleMax releases which bring multipliers and Golden Bets into the mix. What we do have though are Wild Clover Super Wilds. On any spin, if a Clover Super Wild symbol lands in view, it will expand to cover all positions on the reel it has landed upon. This Wild Reel will then substitute for all symbols except Scatters or Free Spin symbols.
Apart from this, it’s all about the two bonuses in this release, and we’ll take a look at the first one now, since it’s fairly straightforward – the Wishing Well Bonus. After landing 3 or more Scatters in view, Wishing Wells will appear, giving a choice for players. After choosing a Wishing Well, it will reveal a cash value. The cash values are dependent on the number of symbols that triggered the feature.
Double Lucky Mushrooms DoubleMax Bonus
Land 3, 4, or 5 Free Spin symbols to trigger 8, 12, or 16 Free Spins, respectively. Players who trigger 8 or 12 spins have the chance to win up to 16 spins with the gamble feature. There are two gambles – from 8 to 12 spins, and from 12 to 16 spins. Both gambles are carried out via a wheel gamble, and both result in the complete loss of Free Spins if unsuccessful. Players can collect at any point.
- Odds are 58.55% for the chance of winning the gamble from 8-12 spins
- Odds are 59.96% for the chance of winning the gamble from 12-16 spins
During Free Spins, Mushroom symbols can land on reels 1-4, and will reveal a cash value when they land. The Lady Luck symbol can land on reel 5. When a Lady Luck symbol lands in view, it will reveal a multiplier, beginning with x2. Each subsequent time a Lady Luck symbol lands on reel 5, its multiplier will be doubled.
If Mushroom symbols and a Lady Luck symbol land on the same spin, the Mushroom cash values will be multiplied by the Lady Luck symbol multiplier.
Finally, players in appropriate regions can skip straight to the action with the Buy Bonus option. For a cost of 65x bet, players have a chance of landing 3 Free Spin symbols or 3 Scatters:
- 8 Free Spins – 79.0% chance
- Wishing Well Bonus – 21.0% chance
The maximum win available in Double Lucky Mushrooms DoubleMax is 19,999x bet. If the sum of a single game round exceeds this, the game round will end and 19,999x bet will be awarded.
Double Lucky Mushrooms DoubleMax is an interesting release, because it applies the DoubleMax multiplier made popular through Raptor, but adds its own twist. Had Raptor not been such a stellar release for the team at Yggdrasil, this might not have been such a big deal, but given that it was so popular, it feels a bit like ‘if it ain’t broke, why fix it?’. In general, it feels interesting the team at Reflex chose to go with the DoubleMax label on this one, since it feels like they’d have gotten away without it, but what do I know.
Gameplay in the base game is fine, with expanding Wilds and the Wishing Well bonus going most of the way towards keeping things moving forward. When you move into Free Spins things certainly do pick up, and in true DoubleMax fashion, it’s all about those final few spins. There’s no sense in lying though, if you’re a big fan of DoubleMax, you’ll definitely miss the sight of win multipliers in excess of x1,000.
Maths is highly volatile, RTP is fixed at 95.50%, and wins are available up to 19,999x bet, so statistically things are fine – as we’ve come to expect from Reflex. All this to say, if you’re a fan of Ireland, doubling multipliers, or ‘pick bonuses’, this one will suit you just fine.
