The wombat says: A mad scientist-themed slot? Yes please 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!
Look and Feel
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 has 5 reels and is a ‘243 ways to win’ slot. Your symbols on the reels include, Dr Watt, the mad-eyed crazy-haired scientist, his busty bespectacled assistant, some kind of weird ray gun, a blue brain inside a jar of water, a green slimey thing under a microscope, a glass beaker containing some smoking pink liquid, and that scientist chimp.
There’s also a robot brandishing a test tube full of some radioactive-looking green liquid, and a bemused rat in a glass cage.
The Wild in the game is the Dr Watts Up logo, and it will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the screen. But it’s also the slot’s top jackpot – land 5x of the Wild symbols and you’ll scoop 83x your bet!
Scatters and Free Spins
‘Experimenting with Scatters can be quite lucrative, mwah ha ha ha’, says the mad scientist. Land 3x, 4x or 5x of the green Nucleus Scatters anywhere on the reels and a positively electrifying x10, x15 or even x20 Free Spins will be yours.
Plus, after each free spin, Dr Watts will mutate a random reel into an expanded wild that will take over the entire column – giving you extra wins.
The Free Spins Bonus can’t be re-triggered, but if you get 5x Scatters anywhere on the reels, you will scoop a nice cash prize of x50 your bet.
The Laboratory Bonus Game
This pick ’em Bonus Game is set off when 3x of the Lab Rats turn up on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. Next, you’re taken to a second screen, where you have to choose 2 tubes of coloured gas from a possible 12. The creepy doc then mixes the contents of both, starts his experiment on an ill-fated rodent and then calculates your cash prize!
Rely on your intuition here Wombat Fans and try to find the most rewarding tubes. Still, if you choose badly you have 2 more chances to change your mind…
A very entertaining game and with 2 bonus features, Dr Watt’s Up slot can be quite lucrative, too. 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…
