Double Dragons, launched on September 9, 2016, is an online game from Yggdrasil Gaming. Described as a breathtaking slot game that lives up to its crowd-pleasing reputation, Double Dragons is among the three Yggdrasil games that are based on the Chinese mythology; the other two are Legend of the White Snake Lady (July 2016) and The Legend of the Golden Monkey (May 2016).
There are lots of rivaling games, including: Dragon’s Myth (April 2015) from Rabcat Gambling, Dragon’s Wild Fire (2015) from Greentube, House of Dragon from Microgaming, and Eye of the Dragon from Novomatic.
The name “Double Dragons” indicates the two featured dragons. Mythologically, the red dragon is made of and exhales fire, and thus called the Fire Dragon; the blue dragon is made of ice and exhales cold, and therefore named the Ice Dragon. The Double Dragons match three, four, or five dragons’ eyes or card suits.
