Head deep in the jungle with Dr Magoo as he searches for adventure and treasures. You’ll find more of the first than the second, but the search certainly takes you to see some pretty sights.
First things first – this is a Sheriff Gaming mobile slot. So some things we can tell you straight away that won’t surprise you. It’s pretty. The graphics are well thought out and nicely represented. From bird pooping on Dr Magoo’s head during the expanded wild feature (Yes it’s funny. We smiled. We are children at heart) to the descending grate of gold after the free spins round. Every symbol is unique and beautiful.
The main problem with this video slot is that it doesn’t pay out an awful lot. The return to player rate is a very conservative 95%, which is at the lower end of the scale for online slot machines. At that kind of rate we expect slots to be at the higher end of the variance scale – so not pay out often, but when it does, pay out big. Not so with Dr Magoo. At best this is a mid-to low variance, so it tries to give you tiny little wins that are unimpressive, fooling you into thinking your account is still within the money. And to be fair, most of the time it will be, as you can play a long time on this slot, without seeing huge damage to your bank balance.
But the point is you, won’t see much change to your bank balance full stop, The win in the main base game are generally low, with little chance of a big win anywhere we can see. The only exception is the Expanded Wild on the centre reel that appears often enough to give you some decent 4 to 5 symbol wins. Sometimes.
This of course changes when you get to the visually arresting free spins round. Here you’ll head deep into a Mayan treasure trove, with completely different symbols on the reels that pay out more than in the base game. It did bring us enough excitement when we hit the bonus feature as here you can potentially win 25,000 in real money, which makes our heart race and be a little more forgiving to one of Sheriff Gaming’s older slots. Of course, getting that maximum win is about as likely as actually donning the adventurers hat and heading into the deep jungle to find actual treasure.
Dr Magoo is a low risk mobile slot, for those who want to spin the reels for as long as possible, at little costs to themselves.

Wild: The two little birds sitting on a tree branch is the wild symbol and substitutes for all except the features bonus symbol.
Expanded Wild on Reel 3: Those two little birds might not respect Dr Magoo much, but they certainly like us! The most frequent bonus feature in the game, if you get the Wild symbol anywhere on reel 3 it will expand to cover the entire reel (and the two little bird poop on Dr Magoo's head... *snigger*). This feature will give you the more exciting wins of the game.
Free Spins: 3, 4 or 5 scattered Tomb entrances will give you 10, 15, and 25 free spins respectively. Needless to say, this feature is hard enough to hit, never mind getting more than 10 free spins. Still when it hits it's pretty exciting and makes you pay attention.
Here you'll get taken deep into the jungle for a treasure trove of riches... maybe. You have three scattered symbols, giving you more chances of wins, plus the symbols themselves are richer with higher payouts. You can also get more free spins if 3 or more Dr Magoo symbols show up anywhere on the reels.
It's the best bonus feature of the game, but hard to find.
This is one adventure we will more than likely avoid. The one exciting feature in the game, the free spins, is difficult to hit and is the one chance you'll get at any decent wins in a game that pays out very little generally. At one point of game play we thought the free spins were as mythical as the lost Mayan treasure we were working so hard to find. We persisted and found them, but we were close to giving up.
However, you'll be able to play for a long time on Dr Magoo's Adventure mobile slot. Reason being, the payouts are small, but often, especially when that frequently occurring expanding wild on the third reel shows up to give you 4 or 5 symbol wins.
We probably won't be playing Dr Magoo's Adventure often, if at all, but we know it has a loyal fan base online with those who enjoy spinning away with only a small risk. And hey, there is always hope at getting that 25,000 jackpot right? Best of all you can free play this game at any of the mobile casinos we've listed below, so you can see for yourself if this is the mobile video slot for you.
If you love the graphics, but are uncertain about Dr Magoo, we would recommend the excellent The Amsterdam Masterplan mobile slot by the same provider which is more generous in nature.
