Happy Birthday Doc.
Happy Birthday Doc. Nintendo

If you have Dr. Mario World on your smart phone, you’re probably thinking that the game isn’t very old. In a way, you’re correct since the game indeed released to the mobile platform back in 2019. However, the series itself had its beginnings all the way back with the first Dr. Mario game released on July 27, 1990. That means we've had thirty years of our favorite plumber taking a role in the medical field.

In celebration of this momentous milestone, Dr. Mario World is holding a special even and they’re giving the 8-Bit Dr. Mario to everyone as a gift. All players need to do is simply log-in to the game. There’s also something extra for all players. There’s going to be two availability periods for the gift and players can earn one per availability period. That means everyone has a chance to get two doctors.

Here’s the schedule players need to keep in mind:

  • 8-Bit Mario Gift 1
    • Start date: July 27 at 2:00 AM ET
    • End date: August 6 at 1:59 AM ET
  • 8-Bit Mario Gift 2
    • Start date: August 6 at 2:00 AM ET
    • End date: August 30 at 1:59 AM ET

There is also a Heart gift event which has already started and is set to end on August 5 at 1:59 AM ET. Take note that the actual celebration is only available until August 6 at 1:59 AM ET.

These are the other offers that players can take advantage of during this celebration:

  • Daily Featured Staffing
    • Different popular doctors get boosted staffing rates each day.
  • Boost to the Daily Booster
    • The number of times a player can use the daily booster is doubled.
    • The number of times players can play for free is increased to two times per day.
    • The number of times players can play again using diamonds is also increased to two times per day.
  • Doctor’s Orders
    • The wait time until the next doctor’s orders appear is reduced by half.
  • Heart (30 minutes of infinite play) Gift
    • A Heart is going to be sent to the player’s doc box each day.
    • This allows for 30 minutes of infinite play when used.
