We Check Out Quickspin Forthcoming New Online Slot in the Tales of Dr. Dolittle!

Vera and John Casino Logo

Quickspin is preparing to launch its next online slot the Tales of Dr Dolittle which is based on the 1920’s novels rather than the Eddy Murphy film, with a schedule released date of the 25th April 2019 there’s just 1 week left before you will find it playable at Vera and John Casino.

The Tales of Dr. Dolittle uses a regular 5×3 reel layout and comes with 25 fixed paylines, Quickspin has opted for a quirky cartoony design in this release and of course, the higher paying symbols are a mixture of various wacky animals and the Doctor himself.

Experienced players will notice a couple of things immediately, firstly, the mechanics to this slot are very similar to Quickspin’s Wild Chase slot to the point that we could almost just call this a graphically re-skinned clone slot, secondly, looking at the paytable makes for grim reading with the highest paying symbol paying just 2x stake for a 5 of a kind win.

The main features of this slot do help counter the shocking paytable somewhat, with a re-spin feature that locks winning combinations in place and grants a free re-spin of the reels. In addition, there are also special Multiplier Wilds that rise in value when more wilds become locked on the reels, rising up to a maximum of 5x.

The main bonus round has a slightly different trigger in that 3 scatters must be collecting during either the initial spin or any of the subsequent re-spins, and are tracked easily in the collection meter above the reels.

The bonus round uses the same mechanics as the base game with the addition of adding 1 multiplier wild onto the reels on every free spin, which obviously helps greatly in scoring winning combinations.

You can check out all of the gameplay features and bonus round in the gameplay video below.

Overall Opinions

The Tales of Dr. Dolittle Slot is a somewhat disappointing release from Quickspin primarily for the points outlined earlier, the mechanics are basically a clone of the Wild Chase slot, the paytable is just not that appealing even after you factor in the multipliers.

Even with a perfect setup of a 5x multiplier and the rest of the reels having the highest paying symbol would result in a 250x win. Even if this is aimed at the low variance players there just doesn’t seem to be enough volatility to get excited about.

We did manage to squeeze 1 bonus round out from this slot at over 100x stake win, but generally, they were more in the 15x to 30x range.

Overall this slot just doesn’t bring anything new or exciting to the slots genre, our advice is to pass this one over and check out some of the older Quickspin slots such as Sakura Fortune or Durian Dynamite which are already playable and offer much more exciting gameplay and potential rewards.
