The Double Happiness pokie is an Asia themed game, and one which has been produced by Aristocrat. The pokie machine contains all your usual elements, such as Mahjong pieces, fans, Chinese books, cymbals, and dragons. It also contains your customary high playing card icons. Would you expect anything less from the Australian online poker developer?
Double Happiness is played over 5 very colourful reels, with players able to wager on 25 paylines. They won’t be able to adjust any of those, though. Line bets can be adjusted, and they range from 0.02 up to 4.00 in all. With the Double Happiness pokie, you’re going to be wagering anything from a floor bet of 0.50 per spin, up to a ceiling bet of 120.00 per spin.

Wild symbol: A golden dragon is the wild symbol in Double Happiness. As a wild, it can substitute itself for all other icons, except scatter symbols. These symbols are also the best paying ones in the pokie.
Roaming wilds: A slightly different wild icon is present, too. Roaming wilds can walk across the reels, replacing all other symbols barring scatters.
Scatter icon: The Chinese text – which resembles a Mahjong piece – is the scatter symbol in this pokie game. If 3, 4 or 5 of those scatter icons appear in any positions, then the player will pocket 10, 15 or 25 free games. Scatters also pay 5x, 20x or 100x your total bet, for each respective scatter appearing on the reels.
Free games feature: During the free games feature, it is possible to land double roaming wilds. This means that two can appear next to each other, and roam across the reels together. For every roaming wild you find in the free spins bonus, you’ll pocket an additional free spin. Roaming wilds can also offer multipliers worth up to 10x the normal rate of pay. Landing scatter icons underneath roaming wilds will also result in a special scatter prize being paid out.
As we’ve said, wilds are the best paying icons in Double Happiness. If you manage to acquire 5 of them on any active payline, then you will be walking away with the non-progressive jackpot in this game. That non-progressive jackpot is fixed at a total of 2,500 coins. This isn’t bad, considering how cheap the pokie is to play. Aside from the wilds, the next best paying symbol is the fan icon, which can be worth as much as 1,000 coins if 5 appear on a payline.
Double Happiness has tried to make itself stand out with its roaming wild features. To a certain degree, it has succeeded. However, there is still not really enough to distinguish this Asia and Chinese themed pokie machine from other similar themed games. Double Happiness is cheap to play, and it does have decent prizes, but one has to wonder just how long it will be able to keep you spinning its reels. The use of wilds, roaming wilds and double roaming wilds is perhaps overkill.
