We had to admit that Doctor Love had us stifling a chuckle from the get-go. This slot game is centred around a rather cheesy doctor who appears to be a bit of a parody. It mixes a romance and a hospital theme, as you may have gathered from the title. On top of providing us with several chances to take home a healthy reward, this game provides a bit of hilarity. After all, they do say that laughter is the best medicine.
About the Developer
NextGen Gaming is behind the Doctor Love slot game. It has since gone on to span a few sequels, attesting to its huge success. NextGen has been in the industry a long time with a number of popular titles to their name. We always look forward to seeing what they’ll come up with next.
About the Game
Doctor Love opens up to a bright pink and purple backdrop. The game is certainly eye-catching. There are 5 reels and 3 rows, which is common among Net Gen slot games. Players can choose to enable up to 20 pay lines when they place their bets. The betting range is decent. You can begin playing with just a penny, or hit the top bet of £40 per spin if you’re looking to take a larger risk.
When you look at the symbols, you’ll see that they are a mix of hospital related icons and those related to romance. Symbols include an ambulance, a teddy bear, an ill patient and an attractive nurse. Despite being an older edition, this game has a payout structure that keeps it competitive. By landing 5 nurse symbols on an enabled pay line you’ll multiply your line stake by x1500!
The wild symbol is covered by none other than the eponymous Doctor Love. He will come to your aid and resuscitate your gaming by substituting for all symbols with the exception of the love meter. The scatter for this game is the colourful love meter. It is a fantastically important symbol in this game as it will provide you access to the free spins bonus round.
The free spins feature is the primary bonus feature included in this slot. Landing 3 love meter symbols anywhere on the reels not only guarantees you a scatter win but also triggers this round. With more love meter scatters you’ll receive more free spins. 3 generates 10 free spins, 4 awards 15 and with the maximum of 5 scatters, you’ll receive 20 spins. For extra oomph, the game boosts all wins incurred during free spins by 3. It can also be re-triggered from within by landing 3 or more scatters.
The theme is definitely one that grows on you. Although the Doctor’s grin is slightly unnerving, the payouts that the game offers makes it playable. It can become strangely addictive, making it easy to see why it has spawned so many sequels. For a higher risk game, players can even opt to enter the gamble feature where winnings can be doubled or quadrupled.
