If Carry On films did slots we’d like to think they’d be something like Doctor Love. It’s a light-hearted, 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from NextGen Gaming that comes with a free spins feature where all wins are trebled and jackpots of 5,000 times your line bet from a single spin. Head to hospital from between 20p and £40 per spin.
The reels are filled with cartoon-style hospital themed images including stethoscopes and cups of medicine, crutches and hospital notes, get well flowers and nurses’ watches, teddy bears and ambulances. The biggest payers of the standard symbols are the bandage clad patient who will give you 750 coins and the female nurse who’ll provide 1,500 times your line bet if you find 5 on a line.
The biggest payer overall is the cheesy looking Doctor Love himself who’ll give you 5,000 coins for a five symbol combo. Doctor Love is also the wild, substituting for every other symbol apart from the love meter symbol which acts as the scatter.
As well as offering scatter payouts of between 2 and 100 times your total bet, the Love Meter will also activate the Free Games feature. Three scatters will give you 10 free spins, four will offer 15 with five providing an off the charts 20 free games.
And that’s not all that’s on offer as all wins in the feature round are subject to a 3x multiplier and trebled. More free spins can be re-triggered so hope to find those love meters. That means there’s up to 40 free spins available if you’re lucky.
The visuals have a jokey feel and that’s complemented by the soundtrack which features bursts of “Oh, dear what can the matter be” on successful spins. Dr Love’s medicine cabinet isn’t brimming with original features but the free spins round is decent. It won’t hit that often but thanks to the multiplier can deliver some seriously impressive payouts when it does hit.
Being ill is usually a pretty miserable experience but his is one hospital visit you won’t mind making. Theme wise, there isn’t any other slot game which is similar but in terms of features, there are plenty. If you want a good game with multipliers in the free spins feature, 300 Shields by NextGen Gaming giving you the possibility to get up to a 300x multiplier – tread carefully though as this game is extremely volatile.
