Dr. Love on Vacation Review
NextGen Gaming’s ever-popular Dr. Love is back! But this time, he’s finally getting a chance to take a vacation! So, join his lovely red-headed assistant as he travels to Hawaii and get a chance to spin for the £50,000 jackpot!
Before you set out on this exciting holiday, it is best to find out how to play along with Dr. Love so that you increase your chances!
The gameplay in Dr. Love on Vacation is simple. You start by setting your bet. To do so, you need to first decide on the number of paylines; they range from 1 to 20.
We recommend that you keep all paylines active since this means that you will increase your chances of landing those elusive wins. Next, you need to set your coin amount. The value ranges from just 20p all the way up to 40. You need to remember that this game has an RTP of 95.43%, which means that you will not get those bigger wins too easily, especially since this is also a medium variance game. Because of this, we would recommend that you keep your bets low so that you can spin a larger number of games. Keeping all paylines active will mean that your bets will automatically be higher, which is why keeping your coin size low is a good idea. This way, you get to activate the bonus features and get bigger wins.
If you land a few big wins, then you can look at increasing your bets, but it is also wise to remember that Dr. Love on Vacation is a game of chance – just like all slot machines. There will be times when you have a lucky streak and win big, but there will also be occasions when you don’t win anything or very little.
Once you’ve set your bet, you can click on the heart icon at the bottom right of the game screen, which is actually the spin button. To win at this game, you should land at least 3 identical symbols along a payline. The amount you win depends on three factors:
- The size of your bet,
- The value of the symbols that make the winning combination and
- The number of symbols forms the winning combination.
The lower-value symbols are the cocktail glass, Dr. Love’s stethoscope, the beach chair, the holiday suitcase, the beach ball, and the Get Well Soon wreath. The maximum you can win with these symbols is 150 coins. The high-value symbols are the medical airplane, the green stuffed toy, the sun-burned patient, and Dr. Love’s sexy red-headed assistant. Dr. Love himself is the most valuable symbol in the game, and if you land all five of him on a payline, you win a massive 5,000 coins!
Additional Game Features
The biggest wins in Dr. Love on Vacation come from the additional game features. So, let’s find out what they are!
Love Wild – Not only is Dr. Love the most valuable symbol in the game, but he is also the Wild. He can substitute for any other symbol with the exception of the Surfboard Scatter. And the great part about this Wild is that if you land 2 or more in a payline, then you get a winning combination. And if Dr. Love is a part of a winning combination, then your prize is multiplied by 2x.
Surfboard Scatter & Free Spins – The Surfboard Scatter not only triggers the Free Spins round. It also can form winning combinations of its own. So, if you land 2 or more Scatters on the paylines, here’s what you win:
- 2 Surfboards win your 2x payouts
- 3 Surfboards win you 5x payouts and 12 free spins
- 4 Surfboards win you 15x payouts and 16 free spins
- 5 Surfboards win you 100x payouts and 20 free spins.
While the Free Spin feature is active, all winning combinations are subject to a 3x multiplier.
And for every extra Surfboard that lands on the reels at this time, you win another 4 free spins! And finally, if Dr. Love the Wildlands is on the reels and is a part of a winning combination, then you win 6x your stake! Its especially as fun as Double Bubble.
NextGen’s game design for Dr. Love on Vacation is as crazy and fun as the original, Dr Love. But in this game, the theme is a beach vacation, and its design definitely reflects that.
The background of the gamescape shows you a tropical beach with palm trees, hills, and even a volcano in the distance. The skies are bluest blue and the sands are golden yellow. The reelscape is framed by bamboo rods, with fronds and flowers of tropical plants adorning the frame. The reels themselves are just plain off-white and the symbols are cute cartoon characters reflective of a fun summer holiday.
The entire game oozes colour and exudes a sense of fun, which is enhanced by the happy music that plays in the background.
NextGen’s sequel to Dr. Love, Dr. Love on Vacation is a winner of a slot machine! The fun graphics and animations, the great gameplay, and the pretty decent big wins are as good as – if not better than – the original. The maximum payout of 50,000 is also not a bad deal considering bet sizes. So, this is one game that we would recommend you try out – especially if you enjoyed the first Dr. Love.
