A trend players see a lot of while looking for a new slot game to play is one where slot machines are taking on a theme whether it be from a real movie or a real television program whether from the past or present. The Love Boat is no exception. Playtech has taken the popular 1977 to 1986 TV show, turned it into an online slot game and presents it to you for your gaming pleasure … orginal soundtrack included!
The 5 reels and 25 paylines are packed with familiar characters who act as symbols in the new game. These characters are Captain Stubbing, Dr Bricker, Julie McCoy, Isaac Washington and Burl Smith. Other symbols that dot the reels have a mid 70’s feel to them and fit right into the Love Boat theme.
The wild symbol is the Red Cruise Ship. The Love Boat logo is the scatter symbol and the Cruise Ship’s Controls is the bonus round symbol. Each one has their own unique outcome when they appear in the reels.
If the Cruise Ship’s Controls symbols lands in reels 1, 3 and 5 in a single spin, the Matchup Bonus will trigger. A screen that shows silhouettes of curvy women will appear and players will get to pick from them and match them up to win multipliers and cash prizes.
The Love Boat symbol is the symbol needed for the free spins bonus round. During the free spins, when Doc lands in the reels, the Love Meter will fill. As it fills up, a new bonus is given for the remaining free spins. Freezing wilds and more free spins are possible. Wilds and more free spins are just what the doctor ordered in order to fill a bankroll!
As you can see the fun based around the TV series The Love Boat is still ongoing even though the show ended years ago. The lovable and funny characters bring the online video slot to life again and reward passengers and players alike.
