- but why not try one of these?
Sheriff Gaming is one of the newer kids on the block but it already has a formidable record of producing top quality online slot machines as well as other casino software. Dr. Magoo’s Adventure is another great looking slot featuring 3D graphics and of course based on the cartoon of the same name.
The game starts with a great intro movie and then you’re presented with the game screen; the background features rocky jungle scenery while the reels themselves are carved into a rock face. Magoo himself loiters at the bottom left of the screen looking suitably jungly with a pith helmet and magnifying glass.
There are five reels and twenty paylines in Dr. Magoo but there are no playing card symbols evident; instead the basic symbols are a carved statue, a puma, Magoo’s kit, a map, a monkey, Binoculars and Dr. Magoo himself. The wild is a pair of green birds while the scatter symbol is the entrance to a temple. There are more symbols within the bonus game but more of that below.
Everybody likes an expanding wild symbol and in Dr. Magoo it only appears on the third reel. When it does, the green birds will fill the entire reel and provide extra opportunities for winning combos. Amusingly the symbol extends to reveal Magoo underneath the birds, perturbed by the bird droppings on his head.
The free spins feature is triggered by landing three or more scatter symbols (temple entrance) anywhere on the screen; three gets you ten free spins, four gets you fifteen while five will win you twenty five free spins. A whole new range of symbols are now introduced for the free spins and they describe Magoo’s journey into the temple, along dark corridors adorned with engravings and finally finding coins and other treasures. Landing five of the treasure symbols will win the jackpot of 5000 coins. During this feature, landing three or more Magoo symbols will win the player more free spins.
The immediate draw of Dr. Magoo’s Adventure is the lovely 3D graphics and the symbols which pop out and animate whenever the form a winning combination. On top of that this is a great game and even if it’s pretty hard to land the bonus game you’ll want to keep playing. Stakes are as little as £0.01 for one payline up to £100 for twenty paylines.
