Symbols and rewards
During the game the rewards are paid for producing successful combos. The combos are formed from identical symbols aligned in sequence. Combinations are read from left to right The first picture in a combo must be landed on the first (leftmost) reel.
Each winning combo has been assigned its own multiplier for the line bet. The size of your winnings depends on the amount of credits that you bet on each line. The appropriate multipliers for each combination are listed in the paytable:
- A martini glass and a stethoscope pay 5, 20 and 100 total bets for three, four and five identical pictures respectively
- A deckchair and a suitcase — 5, 25 and 125
- A ball and a heart — 10, 30 and 150
- A plush turtle and a plane — 15, 50 and 200
- A sunburned gentleman — 3, 20, 100 and 250 for two, three, four and five pictures respectively
- A nurse — 3, 25, 200 and 1000
Besides the regular symbols, the game also features ones that perform some extra functions. The Wild symbol depicts the Doctor. This symbol can substitute for any picture missing in a combo. Combos with a Wild symbol payout double values. The Doctor can also produce his own combos of two, three, four or five pictures. They pay the multipliers of 10, 100, 1,000 or 5,000 accordingly.
The other special symbol is the Scatter. A surfboard can produce combinations of its own that will be formed by applying special rules. The Scatter's position on the game screen is not important. What is important is to collect the required number of pictures. The multiplier for the combination of surfboards applies to the total bet. Two, three, four and five of these pictures will earn you 2, 5, 15 and 100 bets per spin respectively. The Scatter performs yet another function — to trigger free spins.
Three, four or five surfboards landed on the reels will get you a series of free spins besides the reward in credits. Depending on the number of Scatters in a combo, you will be given 12, 16 or 20 free spins for three, four or five symbols respectively. Bonus rounds use the same number of paylines and the same bet size as in the main game.
Winnings for successful combos triple during the bonus spins. The function of the Wild symbol also remains intact. If two Doctors are involved in a winning combo, the multipliers for free spins and the Joker symbol are all added up. This is how one combination can earn you a reward multiplied 6 times.
If another combination of 3 to 5 Scatters lands on the reels, a series of free spins is continued.
The winnings that you earned in the main game can be either doubled or quadrupled. Click on the button with the card suits on the control panel once the winnings for the last spin have been calculated. This button will open an additional screen with the risk game.
You will have to take your guess:
- The colour of a face-down card
- The suit of a face-down card
The less chances you have to provide the correct answer, the higher the multiplier will be for your bet in the risk game. Your bet comes from the reward that you earned in the last spin. If you guess the colour correctly, your reward will be doubled, if you guess the suit, it will be quadrupled. Any wrong answer will forfeit this amount.
Your rewards in this round will not increase indefinitely. You can only play a maximum of 5 rounds. You can decline the next round and claim your winnings if you so desire. If you would like to exit the risk game, clicking on the Take Win button.
Doctor Love on Vacation by Microgaming is a slot with low variance. Combinations are produced quite frequently but rarely do they earn you any big rewards. Low multipliers are often offset by the operation of the Wild symbol that acts as a multiplier. You earn significant winnings during a series of free spins, which you can extend.
