The best way to go back to television serials of decades ago is through branded online pokies. The Love Boat was an extremely popular television series of the romantic comedy genre that was aired on the ABC television network from 1977 to 1987. Playtech, the leading software provider to Australian online casinos, has branded video pokie based on The Love Boat in its portfolio. You can play this game at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
The high paying symbols in The Love Boat are the lovable crew members of the luxury cruise liner. Fans of the television series will recognise Captain Stubing, Dr Adam Bricker the ship’s doctor, Burl Smith the purser, Isaac Washington the bartender and Julie McCoy the cruise director. As expected, the win animations in these symbols play out the best scenes from the television series. The low paying symbols are also thematic. They include silhouettes of wine glass, clipboard, heart and float. The Love Boat is the wild symbol and also awards the highest line payouts. Another brand identification is the popular theme music from the serial played in the background.
In this online pokie you will find many interesting bonus features based on the theme of The Love Boat. The compass symbol triggers the Match Bonus feature when it lands in the same spin on reels 1, 3 and 5. It is a bonus game on the second screen. You have to select a female and a male passenger for instant bonus credits. Your selection will then be put to the test by the love meter, which will reveal a multiplier for the bonus credits based on the compatibility of the chosen passengers. A perfect match will multiply the bonus five times. The game logo symbol awards 10 free spins and again the love meter makes an appearance. Every time Dr. Bricker lands on the reels, the meter reading increases and awards benefits like freezing wilds and additional free spins. If you are able to reach the highest reading on the love meter then you will win a multiplier for the free spins payouts.
The Dream Cruise Jackpot is a prize draw that is in built into the online video pokie. You automatically earn a random number of tickets for the prize draw whenever the ticket symbol lands on reel 5. The larger your bet is, the more tickets you are likely to win. The prize draw is held live every week and the winner gets 10,000 credits.
