Gamesys have released another version of their popular Double Bubble game. It's available to play on Jackpotjoy, Heart Bingo and Virgin Games and is called: Double Bubbly Jackpot. The main difference between the two games are that the newer version has a progressive jackpot that, at time of writing, was over £20,000!
Double Bubble Jackpot is a 20 payline slot which can be played from just 1p a line. The first thing that struck us about Double Bubble Jackpot is that it looks and feels very old school fruit machine. Now for some people that may be a tad too retro, but we quite like it. The graphics are basic and the sounds simple, but it does make you feel like you're playing a good old fashioned slot.
To aid the retro feel, the icons on Double Bubble Jackpot are made of Bars, Cherries, Oranges, Lemons, Bells etc. There are wilds, multiplies and of course a progressive jackpot. The slot also has a Bubble Line bonus - get five symbols in bubbles to win the prize (x22 multiplier of your wager). The progressive slot can be won when you play the Bubble Pop Bonus round.
As Gamesys haven't made any upgrades to the look and feel of the game, the only difference is the progressive jackpot. With this in mind we wonder whether anyone would choose to play the original. In many respects this reminds us of the Fluffy Favourites to Fluffy Too upgrade. The latter was launched last year and supersedes the classic game.
If you've not tried Double Bubble then the game is available to play in free & demo mode at Heart, Jackpotjoy and Virgin. To celebrate the launch of Double Bubble Jackpot you have the chance to win 1 of 1710 prizes worth up to £1000. Opt-in and wager £30 on the game in a single day to earn a prize draw. The promotion runs until the 12th February 2017.
