Tales of Dr Dolittle is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Quickspin that is based (loosely) on the doctor that can talk to animals. Playable from 25p to £100 a spin across all devices, it comes with a streak respin feature, multiplier wilds up to 5x and a Free Spins Bonus feature where each free spin comes with 1 guaranteed multiplier wild.

Visually, Tales of Dr Dolittle is what you’d expect from a Quickspin production – with an upbeat soundtrack, you will see Dr Dolittle’s house on top of a hill where the sea is in the backdrop. With cartoon style graphics, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as a bow-tie wearing pug, a monocle wearing parrot, a horse with glasses and Dr Dolittle himself. He is the most rewarding symbol giving you 2 times your stake for 5 on a payline.

When it comes to bonus features, Tales of Dr Dolittle has 3. If you get any winning combination in the base game, you’ll trigger the Respin feature. All contributing symbols lock in place with the other symbols respinning – if those new symbols add to the win, they too will be locked with the other symbols respinning. This continues until no more new winning combinations are formed.

The slot also benefits from a Multiplier Wild feature – any multiplier wild symbol that is part of a win will award a multiplier:

  • A win with 1 wild will give you a 2x multiplier
  • A win with 2 wilds will give you a 3x multiplier
  • A win with 3 wilds will give you a 4x multiplier
  • A win with 4 wilds will give you a 5x multiplier

Lastly, there’s the Free Spins Bonus feature where is played when 3 or more bonus scatter symbols appear on a spin – this will reward you with 10 free spins. Now, every free spin is guaranteed to feature 1 multiplier wild symbol. This means it’s possible to get a 5x multiplier on every single free spin!

In terms of variance, Tales of Dr Dolittle is in the low to medium range – filling the reels with the high-value Dr Dolittle symbol and 5 multiplier wilds will give you just 250 times your stake. Saying that, the bigger wins will come from the Respin feature as you can get multiple wins (with multiplier wilds) from just 1 base game spin. It’s a decent slot but I prefer other Quickspin titles such as Ark of Mystery or Pirate’s Charm.
