Dr M Brace Slots

Dr-M-BraceDr M Brace is the second title I see from Cryptologic that mixes attractive nurses with doctors and it has a theme that is at least in part about the heart. Though the other game was more of a Valentines Day choice, this one seems to be mostly about a heart doctor, his nurse, sponge baths and they’ve thrown in some classic symbols as well. The slot aims to be a bit sexy and naughty, and it succeeds with the help of the blonde nurse, but otherwise it doesn’t have that many elements that contribute to this theme.

A game from Cryptologic that mixes a 5 reel layout with 25 lines, Dr M Brace offers impressive prizes, $200,000 being the maximum value, plus a big range of features that cover everything, from the typical free spins with multipliers, to two different wilds, a scatter symbol and a bonus game.

Features of Dr M Brace

The bonus games, scatters, free spins, multipliers and wilds provided inside all contribute and make this game a fun one to play, so you get more than just a pretty nurse to keep you interested.

Two different wilds are going to make appearances, but each one has a single reel it can be on. Instead of offering cash prizes, these wilds contribute to combinations and then they also help trigger a bonus game, called Liaison Feature. Dr M Brace is the wild symbol offered on the 1st reel, while Nurse Chastity is going to only show up on reel 5. Neither wild can substitute for the scatter symbol.

Speaking of the scatter, you’re going to easily recognize it, being the only love related symbol present in this slot. It shows the image of a red heart on it and a stethoscope, the Love Heart that the slot mentions on the paytable. As a scatter, its role is well known, which is that of a trigger for free spins and cash prizes (2x – 150x the bet).


Free Game Feature

With only two Love Heart scatters present in the game, but appearing starting from the left, you can win between 5 and 20 free spins (depending on the exact number of scatters present). You do get a 2x multiplier in place for the duration, but you don’t get the option to retrigger these free spins.


Liaison Feature

When both wilds appear on their respective reels at the same time (Dr M Brace on the 1st, while Nurse Chastity is on the 5th reel), you are rewarded with a Liaison Feature, a bonus game where you start with a picking game. Initially, you are asked to pick three of the five displayed curtains, to find the location of Dr M Brace. If you find him, you get a random prize out of it. A smaller prize is given if you don’t locate him.


Betting options and jackpots

You’re not going to find this a cheap slot to play, not with wagers of up to $500 possible and required if you want to get the biggest prize possible. The game uses coins that can be valued at $20 each, and with 25 lines usable, you can easily get to the maximum wager I’ve mentioned.

In exchange, the game has the capacity to reward you with not just free spins with multipliers (which I assume apply to the top jackpot as well), but also with a base game prize of $200,000 (10,000 coins).

Design and symbols

A hospital serves as the location of the love connection that Dr M Brace has with Nurse Chastity, so this game has both the usual love theme and the hospital theme blended in. Some classic fruit symbols were added as well, though they don’t fit that well into the general design. Though the characters aren’t drawn that realistically, you get the feeling that this is exactly how the developers intended them to come out.

Symbols: Dr M Brace and Nurse Chastity (wilds), Love Heart (scatter, 150x triggering bet), Shocking Machine (10,000x), Sponge Bath (1,000x), Triple Bar (500x), Double Bar (500x), Single Bar (250x), Melon (250x), Strawberry (150x), Plum (150x), Lemon (100x) and Cherries (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Dr M Brace is an interesting slot, mostly because of its big prize, but the developers have put enough features into it, plus some attractive graphics and a themed bonus game. All in all, I found it a refreshing slot, and I think it would work well as an alternative to the way too pink slots destined for Valentines Day.

The Dr M Brace slot machine is offered through the Cryptologic platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
