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 scheduled released date of the 25th April 2019 there’s just 1 week left before you will find it playable at Casumo 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.
