And there it is finally: Dr Toonz. This is a new release. Play’n Go has put a lot of effort into it. Dr Toonz is a crazy and completely hysterical online slot from game provider Play’n GO. It is a kind of unofficial sequel to the video slot Energonz, which has been one of the most played Play’n GO titles for years.
Play’n GO has increasingly profiled itself as an innovator in recent years and makes more and more ingenious slots.
The variance is also striking. Although Dr Toonz may look a bit childish, you can win huge amounts of money. And not even with the main bonus feature, the Giant Gargantoon, but with the mini-features, which do everything with the symbols on the screen.
Dr Toonz is not a slot machine that you just start up and immediately understand. It takes a few spins before you understand how everything works. The many space sounds, bright colors and hectic animations don't really help with that either. There is a good chance that it will make you all a bit dizzy quickly.
Our advice: keep going. This is one of the nicest and most lucrative releases. We have already had a payout of 400x - 600x on this slot machine several times and we can tell you: that feels good.
There are reels in this video slot. The game is played on a matrix of 7x7 symbols. So there are 49 squares on which symbols are placed.
The symbols consist of mischievous space creatures and the occasional wild symbol. Winning combinations are created when 5 or more of the same symbols touch each other. NetEnt calls this the Cluster Pays mechanism, which is also used in Emoji Planet and Legend of Shangri-La, for example. The more the same symbols touch each other, the higher the payout.

Winning combinations disappear and make way for new symbols so that you can win several winning combinations in a row. If there is a 2x2 symbol in a winning combination, the payout is doubled - always nice.
The betting range runs from 0.20 to 100 euros per spin and the payout percentage is an excellent 96.52%. The variance of Energoonz is high.
With each spin, 1 special symbol is designated, which lights up. Every time a winning combination occurs with this special symbol, he leaves 2 wild behind. This of course increases the chance of new winning combos.
If you look at the top right of your screen, you will see a large white monster with 3 eyes. Keep an eye on this guy. This is your best friend in the game, the Gargantoon.
This white behemoth can activate a special feature for you. You have to fill the meter for that by making winning combinations. For every full meter, 1 of the 4 boosters is randomly activated.
These boosters are essential for bringing in the big payouts.
- Alteration: 1 random symbol is changed into another symbol - often worth nothing, and sometimes extremely valuable.
- Implosion: Without a doubt the booster: 3 to 6 random symbols are turned into wilds and all surrounding symbols are removed.
- Demolition: All low symbols are removed, causing the premium symbols to fall down.
- Incision: A powerful booster, where a wild symbol and two diagonal rows of the same symbols are placed on the screen. A very powerful booster, especially when the rows are filled with wilds.
The Gargantoon can also land between 4 and 8 wilds after a non-winning spin, the Instability Feature.
When you have filled all 5 meters, our big friend the Gargantoon really comes into action. It appears as 3x3 wild on the screen, then as 2x2 wild, and finally with 9 loose wilds. It's a kind of wild mayhem, with winning combinations everywhere and big prizes. A wonderful feature, which really feels like a reward for your hard work.

Although it can sometimes lead to a big curse if you get stuck at 4 full meters and don't manage to get the 5th meter full.
When 5 meters are filled, it's a party. Now the super-powerful Gargantoon Feature is added to the queue. This Gargantoon Feature provides quite a few extra wilds on the screen. First, a 3x3 wild symbol appears on the screen, then a 2x2 wild, and then nine loose wilds. It seems that the complete hysteria has erupted, often resulting in large payouts.
We had to get used to this new slot machine from Play’n GO. We found Dr Toonz too busy, too childish, and above all too complicated. If your balance also shrinks very quickly, you are able to take your loss and quickly play something else.
Luckily we didn't and gave this Dr Toonz a real chance. And guess what? Dr Toonz This is an insanely cool video slot that can also pay out big.
But be warned: Dr Toonz can be extremely erratic and sometimes has long periods of drought. So make sure you have sufficient balance and do not bet too high.
