If You Are in the Mood for Love This Cartoon Doctor has the Right Medicine
This bright, cartoon-like online slot from NextGen Gaming stars a smiling doctor of love. This guy might claim to have the right medicine – though looks like the type of character you’d find on a late-night infomercial. There is an obligatory sexy nurse, and a sick patient also on the reels. You’ll find the Doctor Love online pokies in mobile and desktop format. There is now a sequel – Doctor Love on Vacation.
Love meters play an important role in this game. While the gameplay is simple, the lighthearted feel and big win potential are sure to keep you entertained.
Here are the main features to look out for:
Most of the symbols are medicine-themed. The ‘Love Meter’ is an exception. This gadget is presumably used to measure the success of the doctor himself. This symbol will give you prizes in multiples of your total bet. You only need two anywhere in view to get a prize, though five will get you a payout that you’ll fall in love with.
In addition to these big scatter wins, these symbols will also give you access to the potentially profitable free spins bonus games.
This free spins game is the only feature of this online pokie – and is well worth hitting. Gameplay is the same as in the base game, with the stake level of the triggering spin used. What is different is that all wins are tripled for the duration of your free spins. This puts the top line prize (for five doctor symbols) up to an enticing 15,000 coins.
The number of free spins you get depends on how many Love Meter scatter symbols you triggered with. For the maximum five, you’ll get 20 free spins – giving you plenty of time to accumulate those tripled wins. The minimum number of free spins is 10 for three of the special symbols. You can retrigger for more spins during this bonus.
Doctor Love uses a standard setup. There are five reels, each with three rows of symbols. 20 win-lines cross these reels, these are not adjustable. You can bet from just 20c per spin – or add a multiplier for bigger spins.
The Doctor himself is the wild symbol. His big grin will help you win over multiple lines by substituting for the other symbols. Note that Doctor Love will not substitute for the Love Meter scatters. This symbol is worth 5,000 coins for the maximum five. Like the nurse and patient symbols, it pays for just two or more from the left.
There are no filler symbols used on this pokie machine from NextGen Gaming. All the images are unique. There is a blue teddy bear, ambulance, flowers and some medical instruments completing the symbols.
Overall, this is a simple design. All of the symbols are bright, drawn with a cartoon look to them. The doctor stands out. He has a huge blonde quiff and is surrounded by hearts. Whether you’d want this character to treat you is another question…
I also like the sick patient. He is wrapped in bandages and has a thermometer sticking out of the side of his mouth. Most of the sound effects on this pokie are standard electronic warbles. When you trigger the free spins, you’ll hear a heart-warming tune while you play.
If you are playing the mobile version of Doctor Love, a big spin button can be found mid-reels on the left-hand side. You can use the slider to the left of this to adjust your bet sizes.
This simple NextGen Gaming pokie has a lot of character. While the gameplay is straightforward, the cartoon characters and theme give it a lighthearted feel. There are some opportunities to win big. When the free spins bonus kicks in, all your wins will be tripled. This is a great time to hit the high-paying Doctor Love scatters, or those wild symbols.
