The sinister Doctor, together with his troupe of freaks, allows players to enter his realm of dreams and curiosities to experience things beyond the comprehension of imagination.

The bonus wheel happens often enough to keep spiking entertainment levels, while the free spins can dish out huge wins with the right combinations.”

“The cross-vertical nature of the game presents our operators with a prime opportunity to introduce their players to new verticals, using a character and game mechanics that they are familiar with.”

“If you ever hear Dr Fortuno, also known as the King of Yellow, whisper his catchphrase, ‘By the pricking one of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes!’ roll up, roll up and join his troupe to make fortune smile upon his lucky patrons. You never know, if picked he could bestow you with riches beyond your wildest imagination.”
