Ainsworth are all set to unveil a new slot at online casinos this month. Players with eagle eyes may note that there is something which stands out about the new Twice the Gold slot. It is very similar to Ainsworth’s older Twice the Money slot. In fact, the two are so similar that we could be looking at the makings of a franchise.
Of course, like other Ainsworth slots, the emphasis here is on providing gameplay for high-rollers. Low RTP (return to player) rates and high volatility put paid to seemingly any chance of this game being a hit amongst players on a budget.
The Start of a Series or Franchise
You don’t have to have played Twice the Money for long to realise that the old slot has so much in common with this new game. Ainsworth’s Twice the Gold provides 5 reels and 25 lines (like most slots), and it can be played for as little as 25p a spin. However, maximum wagers are considerably costlier.
The return to player (RTP) rate in this game is set to 93.99%, and that is hardly the most impressive thing we’ve seen from Ainsworth. The game is highly volatile, so players shouldn’t expect wins to come crashing through every two seconds.
Things to Note About the New Game
Sticky wilds and increasing multipliers are part and parcel of this game’s features. While these sound as though they would make winning a mere formality, they don’t. A free spin bonus does dish out decent prizes, but there may be epic waits in-between triggering the bonus rounds. Prizes are modest in this game, and again that won’t fill too many low rollers with optimism.
There doesn’t appear to be enough special features in this game to warrant extended gameplay, which is a shame. If this is indeed a sequel, players might have hoped that Ainsworth would improve on the original game, instead of essentially duplicated it.
Where to Play Twice the Gold
Ainsworth continues their trend of only really catering those players with super budgets with this release. If you are feeling flush, you can expect to find this game at any top online casino which delivers Ainsworth slots. However, as most of us don’t have a wad that could knock out a whale, players would arguably be better suited trying something more down to earth, a far less expensive.
