The soapy evergreen from Roxor Gaming has just received a substantial upgrade. Double Bubble Megaways brings back the original slot from 2006 and combines it with the dynamic reels of the game engine from Big Time Gaming. The fizzling gameplay has been spiked with wild substitutions, a Bubblemania machine feature and a Bubble Pop Bonus game where you can win free spins or the progressive jackpot.
Double Bubble Megaways is a progressive jackpot slot with six dynamic reels featuring 2 to 7 symbols and 324 to 117,649 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet, you can bet from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 95.48% of which 0.15% is the jackpot contribution.
The original Double Bubble wasn’t really a graphic masterpiece but the simplicity was fitting for the gameplay. They have been updated with the upgrade, with the bubble machine still at the centre of it all, holding the now larger reel set and the key to the only modifier included in the features. The pale green background with pipes leading to the machine and floating bubbles remained virtually unchanged which can also be said of the main part of the audio. Feels like a trip down memory lane for some.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from 10 through to A, awarding across the board 1x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by cherries, melons, oranges, bells and Super 7s. Hit six across the reels to win between 1.5.x to 25x your stake. A pink bubble marked with the word itself is the wild symbol appearing on all reels bar the first and performing the usual substitution duties. A blue Bonus icon acts as the scatter.

Double Bubble Megaways is Roxor Gaming’s third foray into slots with the immensely popular game engine under licence from Big Time Gaming. And this time they chose one of their most successful slots that was released in 2006 when they were still operating under the Gamesys umbrella and gave the oldie but goldie a substantial upgrade. Reason enough to take a closer look at what you can expect.
Having forgone the cascading symbol mechanic with reactive wins on this occasion, the base game relies heavily on hitting multi-way wins as well as triggering the Bubblemania feature. While spinning the reels, you will observe that on every spin one randomly chosen pay symbol marked with bubbles. Wilds will always appear marked. Hitting a win with the selected symbol or in combination with wilds will activate the Bubblemania machine on the side of the game window (desktop). Once the initial win is paid, the machine will add more matching bubble symbols on random positions on the reels and thus create bigger wins. A second win evaluation is done after all bubble symbols have been placed and any new wins from the feature paid. However, any potential wins with non-marked symbols are not awarded a second time.
Hitting three or more Bonus scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger the Bubble Pop Bonus. The game will lead to a second screen and offer you three bubbles to choose from. They can contain varying numbers of free spins or the progressive jackpot. Mostly, all three bubbles contain free spins only. You can pick one of the bubbles to pop and reveal your prize. The jackpot has a seed value of £25,000 and 0.15% of every bet made on the game across the entire network will contribute to it. Winning the jackpot will instantly end the bonus game. Should you win free spins, then you will be heading into the bonus round.
Getting to this stage of the gameplay indicates that you won free spins in the Bubble Pop Bonus. The round is played at the same bet size that triggered it with the added benefit that the Bubblemania machine will frequently add Wild Bubbles to the reels, although not on every free spin, thus making it easier to score a win and also to trigger the Bubblemania feature. And you could potentially have another shot at the jackpot. For that, you will need to hit two or more scatters to retrigger the Bubble Pop Bonus which will offer you again three bubbles to choose from.
Double Bubble was a good choice for the Megaways upgrade as the slot series is a popular franchise in the casino community. In fact, the entire concept has been kept including the bubble symbols and the progressive jackpot with the ladder appeared only later on in the franchise. Overall, a playable slot that is however missing the cascading symbol mechanic which is a good part of the attraction on Megaways games.
