With five reels and 20 adjustable Paylines, the NextGen-powered Doctor Love Slot video slot could be just what the proverbial medic prescribed!
It’s a pretty straightforward offering, with numerous opportunities for small wins to maintain interest. And while the bonus feature is pretty basic, it’s a fairly profitable affair nonetheless.
This slot is pure Carry On Doctor, complete with cartoon-style, hospital-themed imagery. The super-cheesy Dr Love himself is in the backdrop, as is a somewhat stereotyped image of a female nurse which may not be to everyone’s taste.
That said, this is a light-hearted game, tongue (or perhaps thermometer) firmly in cheek. The soundtrack, for example, is peppered with regular cheery bursts of ‘Oh, dear, what can the matter be?’ whenever a spin wins.
How to play
You can play Dr Love Slot from between 20p and £40 a spin and up to 100 coins on all Paylines. Reels are packed with hospital-related imagery including a stethoscope, crutches, clipboard, flowers, ambulance, pocket watch, teddy bear and patient.
Winning symbols come to life with sound effects to celebrate the recuperated patient.
The best payer among the standard icons is the bandage-clad patient, who awards you 750 coins, while the nurse offers 1,500x line bet for five in a row. Lowest payers are the meds and stethoscope, with five of a kind paying just 100 coins.
All symbols pay from right to left, except the Love Meter, which does so in either direction.
Meanwhile, Dr Love Slot offers the best cure of all, bestowing a whopping 5,000 coins for five of him. Dr Love is also the Wild, replacing every symbol apart from the Love Meter, which serves as the Scatter.
Doctor Love Slot Bonus rounds
This is the main bonus element in this game – land at least three of the Love Meters anywhere on the reels in the base game to trigger it. All wins are subject to a 3x multiplier, and you can retrigger the feature when you land another three or more of the love meters.
You win 10 free spins for three love meters, 15 for four and 20 for five. Jackpots of 5,000x line bet are possible from a single spin here.
The gamble feature
Use this in the base game if you wish, when you land a winning combo. (Just press the Gamble button after a win and you’re away.) The format is a standard card game, and you can get double winnings by choosing whether the next card will be black or red, quadrupling them if you also get the suit right.
You can gamble your winnings up to five times, although not jackpot wins.
Return to Player (RTP)
At 95.04%, the RTP in Dr Love Slot is quite low, so it’s a good job the bonus round is potentially lucrative.
This may not be the most sophisticated slot out there; indeed it’s as corny as a bunion – and the bonus features are hardly original. Yet there’s still much to like in Doctor Love Slot – it’s bright and cheery with swift gameplay and even a rather addictive feel.
So give it a whirl, for fun to start off with, or for real money. If you’re a casual player, like to vary your bets and just want some cute, high-quality graphics, alongside a simple format with which to enjoy the spins, you’ll love Doctor Love Slot!
