Are there any scientists out there that aren’t mad? Over the years slightly crazed scientists have kept slot game designers in work and here’s another one in ‘Dr Watts Up’ from Microgaming.
This is a five reel slot that has 243 different ways to get a win. I won’t name them all but a quick look through the paytable will reveal all you want to know. Playing the game costs between £0.30 and £120. It’s best to just work out a financial budget and stick to it then carry on enjoying the game.
Symbols are theme-related and include Dr Watts Up, his pink-haired assistant, test tubes, brains, chemicals, electron guns, a monkey scientist and a lab rat.
The wild symbol in this game is the Dr Watts Up logo and this can certainly help you get some winning combinations without having to endure any crazy experiment. It gets you wins by substituting for other symbols in the game apart from the scatter and bonus symbols.
There is an autoplay feature which is always handy if you want a bit of time away from the computer screen. It’s possible to select either a set number of automated spins or choose your own and set some conditions. For example, when your account balance rises to or falls to a certain figure or after a big win you fancy keeping hold of.
The scatter symbol is the Nexus and this plays an important part in triggering the bonus game as will be fully explained shortly. There’s also a bonus scatter symbol which is the Lab Rat.
There are two bonus games in ‘Dr Watts Up’ and both give you a good chance of getting some good wins.
Three of more of the scatter symbols get you into the free spins feature. If three trigger the game then you get ten free spins. Four see you playing with 15 and five gets you 20 to try and get some good wins with. There’s definitely a good chance of that happening as during the free spins one reel will turn randomly wild.
As well as the free spins round there’s also the Laboratory Bonus Game. The Bonus Scatter symbol is the one you need to look out for. When this appears on the first, third and fifth reel then that’s qualified you for this feature. It’s a second screen game and as you might expect in a laboratory there are plenty of test tubes hanging around. It’s your job to choose two of the test tubes and give them to the mad doctor. He then calculates their value by putting them into the chamber. If you want to try to win a larger prize you get two more goes at doing so. It’s an entertaining bonus game and you can get some good wins from it.
This is another humourous slot from Microgaming who have been busy supplying us with some excellent slots for a couple of decades. the game looks great, the soundtrack is bearable and the bonus games definitely give you the chance of getting some decent wins.
