It’s always important to strike the right kind of balance with slots because for every light-hearted and amusing theme, you also need to have something a little bit spookier. Case in point: the Spin Doctor slot game.
Today, we’re going to take a look and see just how scary it really is.
The Spin Doctor slot game opens up with a fairly standard 5×4 reel layout that truly does fill up the entire screen, and with 20 paylines to work your way through, there’s a lot to keep you occupied.
The usual playcard symbols that we all know and tolerate are present, but in addition to that, we’ve also got the following themed efforts: a top hat, a mask, a book, potion, the head of a bird and more.
The return to player (RTP) percentage always needs to be handled with care, because even if you don’t personally subscribe to the idea that it can benefit your gaming experience, others see it in a different way. It’s utilised for slots across the globe including the Spin Doctor slot game with the reported RTP coming in at 95%. That’s definitely below the standard average but if you’re patient enough, you could be rewarded with significant wins.
You can change and alter your stake at any available point by using the button at the bottom of the reels, but the real headline is that you could win an absolutely incredible £250,000 if you’re fortunate enough.
We do think there should’ve been more attention given to the background as the reels themselves dominate the entire scenery quite dramatically, but in terms of the theming, we really like the weird, spooky direction that they’ve decided to go in.
The pink ‘Wild’ symbol is one to keep an eye out for as it can replace all other symbols outside of the Spin Doctor bonus.
If you want to trigger one of the bonus features, you’ll have to land three bonus symbols on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels. From there you’ll be given a screen of bubbles that you will select until you find three of the same colour, determining which feature you receive.
Red Super Swamp – unrestricted free spins alongside the 3rd reel being fully wild until you receive at least 20x your stake.
Purple Freek – 10 free spins are given if you land a voodoo doll, which removes the least rewarding symbol from the reel, and if you see more than one, your free spins will increase even further.
Green & Golden Croc-Trails – spin a dice and travel through the swamp, picking up multipliers in the process.
You can also utilise the Win/Win mode which sees Papa Croc pop up and present you with three tarot cards that could increase your winnings. Oh, and the Bonus chance provides you with more bonus icons, too.
The Spin Doctor slot game falls short on some of the consistency within the design work, but as a finished product, we still really enjoy it. There are some huge wins on the table for punters to win and the bonus features are bound to keep you entertained for hours on end.
