The Wombat says: A mad scientist-themed slot? Yes please Games Global / Microgaming! Just when we thought we couldn’t take another Irish game, along came those imaginative slot wizards and gave us totally bonkers Dr Watts Up slot.
We find ourselves in the crazy doc’s lab where all manner of creepy experiments are taking place, and even more peculiar inventions are being put together.
Help the evil genius and his beautiful assistant carry out their weird experiments and get your rewards on the reels!
Barmy. That’s the only way to describe the design of this slot. The background to the reels is Dr Watts’ dark and creepy workshop, while the games’ designers really went to town with the imaginative icons that are made up of various devices and contraptions. The goggle-wearing monkey in a lab coat with the banana in his top pocket is this Wombat’s favourite, but each of the 3D symbols is given a quirky trait that reveals itself when there’s a win. Crazy graphics and a fun soundtrack too, we like.
Dr Watts Up Slot Gameplay
Dr Watts Up slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 paylines. The minimum bet iset is 0.09 coins up to a maximum of 18.00 coins.
The highest paying symbols are Dr Watts Up himself and his pink haired assistant, land 2 or more matching symbols to trigger a win.
The lower paying symbols include are all straight from a mad scientists lab – monkey in a lab coat, a robot, a test tube, a flask, a brain, a rat in a jar, a laser gun, a microscope, an atom and a green-coded laptop. Landing 3 or more of these symbols triggers a win.
Instead of a scatter symbol, one of the Free Spins containers in the Green Feature Tube above the reels will activate the Free Spins round.
The Dr Watts Wild symbol (his name not his picture symbol) is multifunctional. Firstly, it can be used in place of other symbols to complete winning chains. Secondly, it collects the containers above the reels to reward you with free spins, cash, a mystery prize, or a wild reel. Landing 2 or more of Dr Watts Wilds will trigger a win too.
The green Feature Tube sit above the reels. Four containers randomly move across the reels, Cash, Free Spins, Wild Reel, Mystery and randomly award prizes.
After each spin, each of the four containers can appear above the fifth reel. Once they appear, they shift to the left position with each subsequent spin. When a Dr Watts wild appears beneath one of the containers containing a Cash Prize, Mystery Prize, Free Spins, or Wild Reel, that particular feature will be activated. You also have the potential to activate many features on the same spin.
When actived the Wild reel will expand to cover the entire reel. Up to three reels can turn wild at once.
The yellow Mystery container will randomly award one of the other three container’s prizes when activated.
If the blue Cash container is triggered a mini wheel will spin and reward you with a cash prize of between x2 and x100 your bet.
The blue Free Spins container triggers when a Dr Watts Up Wild lands underneath the container on the reels. You will receive 10 Free Spin. However, if you land 5 Dr Watts Up Qilds under the containers, you can get up to 50 Free Spins.
The Free Spins feature has a container on each reel, unlike in the base game, where it is random, or there could also be no containers. Any retrigger of the feature will reward you with another 10 Free Spins.
Dr Watts Up slot is a very entertaining game. We loved the Feature Tube with the 4 container bonus feature. This slot has vibrant graphics, catchy animations and a foot-tapping theme tune. What’s not to like? Fire up those bunsen burners! It’s time to get crazy…
Wombat score: 5/5
