Doctor Love is a cheesy romp through a 70s-style soap opera - although it keeps its tongue firmly in its cheek throughout. All the elements of the great soapie hospital dramas of old are here: the sexy nurse, the dashing eponymous Doctor, the battered patient with the mysterious condition.
It's all presented in a campy, cartoon style that's pleasantly amusing, with animated sequences sure to make you chuckle. That's just the visual angle, though - featurewise, this game offers a decent and satisfying player experience. It's got Wild symbols to pick up the earn rate, it's got Scatters for instant win potential, and it's got a fantastic Free Spins feature that's a real boon when you hit it.
Interning with Doctor Love
This isn't the sort of video slot that requires a manual - the game's been designed so that you'll be able to pick it up quickly without a medical degree.
The concept is delightfully simple. There are five reels, all covered with medical imagery. You will be spinning them, and trying to get matching imagery to line up along predefined pay lines.
Unlike 3-reel slots, you're not limited to just the center pay line. Instead, Doctor Love has a total of 20 lines that you can place bets on. Each line follows its own route across the five reels, costs a single coin to activate, and adds an extra chance to win with every spin of the reels.
The Cast of Characters
Before we get to the main characters in out hospital soap drama, the pay table begins with some more generic medical goodies. It starts with medication, stethoscopes, stopwatches and flowers, and progresses on to ambulances and teddy bears.
The symbols you really want out for are the Sick Patient, the Sexy Nurse, and Doctor Love himself, who is both the game's top prize and Wild symbol. Five in a could earn you up to $50,000, if you hit it on maximum bet.
Huge Hospital Handouts
Doctor Love doesn't have a specific bonus game as such, the way some video slots do, but it does offer an excellent free spins feature which cranks up your winnings in much the same way a dedicated bonus round would.
The free spins feature is triggered when at least three Love Meter Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. The exact number of free spins it will be awarded depends on how many scatter symbols turn up, but it's possible to win up to 20 spins completely on the house.
The best part about the free spins feature in this game is that anything you win during the bonus round is automatically trebled!
