Love is Certainly in the Air
Design wise, the game is very stylised. From the moment you launch the game you’ll be welcomed by a beautiful backdrop of palm trees. If you look up, you can see a clear blue sky and in the near distance you can even see a blue ocean. There are multiple symbols in the game. One of the symbols that you’ll encounter in this game is the stethoscope, which is meant to signify that Doctor Love is listening to his patient’s hearts and he’s helping them find that special someone in their life. Next up we have the cocktails, the deckchairs, the beach balls, and the plane, which is obviously meant to take the loved-up couple back home.
Design wise, we can’t look past just how odd the theme of this game actually is, as it certainly takes a detour from the original Doctor Love. Even though the theme is somewhat “off the wall”, we can’t fault the production values used, as NextGen Gaming has come up big again with this real money slots release really looking part.
When Man and Woman Come Together
Considering how barmy the design of this game is, the gameplay is more or less largely as you would expect. You can choose how many coins you want to bet on, although it is preferable to go all out from time to time, since that would help the two find love faster. You can bet up to 0.20 per spin, with a maximum of up to 200.00 per spin. 20 paylines, 5 reels, and not all that much else, in gameplay Doctor Love on Vacation doesn’t think too far outside of the box in our opinion.
The biggest rewards from the normal symbols that you’ll find pretty often in this game will be offered by the woman and the man symbols. This is basically meant to show that they’re lost without your help, and by finding them they can find each other as well. Outside of these two symbols, the game is all about the bonus icons, which we address in detail below.
Love is the Best Medicine
Getting right to the point, the Wild of the game is represented by Doctor Love himself. Every time you find him he can be replaced for any other symbol in the game, except for the scatter. If you do get three or more scatters at the same time then you’ll get between 2 and 100 times your winnings, alongside 4 free games in which every win you make will be tripled. Doctor Love on Vacation also throws in a gamble game, which will be perfect for the old school slots fans out there.
Searching for Hidden Treasures
When it comes similar games, there is simply isn’t any better place to start than with the first Doctor Love. While it may be the original game, there is simply no denying that it actually exceeds what Doctor Love on Vacation has to offer. Super fun and super silly, you would be foolish not to give this game a try. If you want to stay away from the love theme, but still want to experience similar gameplay, take a look at Atlantis Treasure from Mazooma, as it is more or less a Doctor Love on Vacation clone when it comes to gameplay.
Take a Trip With Doctor Love on Vacation!
Doctor Love on Vocation is a mixed bag of a game, as while it’s fun, the original medium variance offering is still better in our eyes. It’s not the juggernaut that we all expected it to be, but it is also in no way a disappointment. It’s a great game, just not on the same level as the previous games released by NextGen Gaming, so bare that in mind before you spin its reels.
