Double-up Option

The Double Up Option is also known as the Gamble feature. This is one of the most exciting features of a slot since it gives players a chance to double, triple, or even quadruple their winnings. It’s a quick and non-skill-related way to increase the players’ winnings.

How This Feature Works

This double up option or gamble feature comes in different ways. Different slots offer different ways for players to double, triple, or quadruple their winnings. The most common method is through guessing the color or suit of a card. Another method is through guessing the outcome of a toss coin. If players guess it correctly, their winnings will be increased. However, it’s common that when they lose, they might lose everything.

Types of Double Up Option

  1. Heads or Tails (BetSoft) – For this type, players will have to guess the outcome of a toss coin in order to double their winnings. If they choose heads and the outcomes turns out to be heads, then their winnings will be doubled. It must be noted that there’s no quadruple option in this game.
  2. Hi-Lo (Barcrest) – In this slot, players will asked to guess if the next number to be shown is higher or lower than the one being shown, with the numbers ranging from 1-12.

  1. Pick a Symbol (Play N Go) – In this slot, Players will be asked to guess what’s hidden behind the card on the screen. Players will be asked to choose from three or four symbols and if they guessed correctly, they can double or triple their winnings.
  2. Playing Cards: Guess the Color (Playtech) – This is actually one of the simplest ways to present a double up option. Players will be asked to guess the color of the next card to be drawn. They’ll choose from red or black and if they guessed right, their winnings will be doubled. Players will be allowed to keep on drawing a card and guessing its color. However, once they guessed wrong, they might lose the entire lot.
  3. Playing Cards: Guess the Suit (Aristocrat/Microgaming/Play N Go) – For Microgaming slots, players will be given a chance to guess the color of the card to be drawn next and if they guessed it right, their winnings will be doubled. The next step would be to guess the suit of the next card to be drawn. If they guessed it right, their winnings will be quadrupled. In some slots, players will be given a chance to play the double up option for up to five times before returning to the original game.
  4. Split Gamble (Booming Games) – Players will guess the outcome of a toss coin but there will be an additional option- the Split. Players can choose to bank 50% of their winnings and continue gambling using the other half.
  5. ‘Your Gamble’ (Microgaming) – This one’s pretty interesting since after getting a winning spin, players will be given a chance to play the Gambling Wheel. There are two areas in the Wheel; the red or ‘Lose’ section and the blue or ‘Win’ area. Players will have the option to increase the ‘Lose’ area in order to also increase the winnings at stake. Players can keep on playing the Gamble Wheel but once they’re ready to stop, they can just select the ‘Collect’ button to get their winnings.

The Downsides

Every slot feature has either a minor or major disadvantage. When it comes to nice things like a promising slot feature, there will always be a catch. The major downside of the double up option is the high risk of losing their original winnings. The idea of increasing your winnings might be really tempting, but if you’re not extremely lucky when it comes to guessing things, then it might not be worth it.
