The love boat – A Cheesy 70s vibe and a dating match up bonus
If you like games that offer something unique then you’re in the right place. We took the Love Boat for a few test spins and found that, even in a marketplace of thousands of slots, there’s always room for another!
What’s it all about?
This game most certainly has a Carry On/Radio Caroline feel going on and looks like it’s been plucked right out of the 70s. This 5 reel, 25 Payline slot game will see you spinning reels stuffed full of party ship based symbols. At the top of the payout table you’ll be hoping to spinning 5 occurrences of the Wild Symbol (which is a red boat); this symbol can earn you anything up to a 3000x multiplier.
The characters also fare well (the captain, and the ship’s staff); the captain himself is worth a 1000x multiplier for the spinning of 5 occurrences, and the staff are worth 400x, 300x, 200x and 150x multipliers of 5 occurrences respectively.
Any Bonus Rounds/Special Features?
The Matchup Bonus round is triggered by spinning 5 ship controls onto reels 1, 3 and 5. During this round you’ll be matching up dudes and chicks to win cash prizes and multipliers.
To start this round you’ll need to pick a foxy lady from the group shown on screen to be matched up with a gentleman. This first stage could already see you winning some serious instant cash prizes, after this however the couple will be put to the match o meter test to see if they’re really meant to be. If the meter gives them a good score then you’ll see your cash prizes being multiplied by some serious figures. Here’s the matchup possibilities:

It’s my one true love – A 5x multiplier

The Dream Cruise Jackpot
This unusual bonus feature sees a jackpot drawn each week. The date and time of the draw is displayed to the right of the reels. You can win tickets to the draw by spinning the Tickets symbol onto reel 5.
How does it look?
This game doesn’t half manage to pull off a cheesy 70’s style with grace. The reels are super colourful and the animations are as smooth as any we’ve ever seen.
We love it when we come across a game that has something totally new to offer the world of slots, and this game easily manages it. In particular we loved the unusual bonus rounds and the fact that the £10,000 jackpot draw is a physical draw that you need to head on back to the game for.
