Jekyll And Hyde is a five-reel video slot played at 25 fixed paylines which is totally based on the famous novella by Robert Louis Stevenson The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr. Hyde set in London back in the Victorian Era.
As Dr Jekyll turns into a diabolic man known as Mr. Hyde when he drinks his magic potion, the bottles of magic potion also control the course of the game offering many winning chances both in the base and bonus game.
The gaming company Playtech did a great job when it comes to visuals and animations as they serve to the theme well while soundtrack and sound effects add to its eerie atmosphere. The game offers the feature bet option which doubles your stake and offers powered up Scatters which deliver free spins even when they appear on the reels partially.
What We Love
We love the concept of the game as it reflects the main idea the novella elaborates and that is a split personality. Just as Dr Jekyll turns into his hideous Mr. Hyde, your game transforms depending on the mode you have chosen to play at. The most lucrative feature is expandable Wild appearing both in the base and bonus game and completing your winning combinations whenever it is possible.
We also love the possibility of winning dozens of free games as the feature is designed to award free spins as long as you get four Wilds on the last reel. During the free spins feature you may benefit from additional Wilds and up to 5x multipliers depending on the mode you have chosen. Whether you choose Jekyll or Hyde Spins mode you may expect huge payouts.
What We Do Not Like
We find that you do not get much in return for activating the feature bet as it doubles your bet and only offers more chances of triggering the free spins feature.
As we tried both modes, we can conclude that we hit even more wins during the regular one. Wilds appear only on three reels which lessens your winning chances. The gameplay may seem a bit confusing due to all the modes of play offered, but once you start playing it you will figure out that the crucial difference lies in the bonus game.
The atmosphere the game creates and all its bonus features make this game a real attraction for all fans of horror stories. You may get multiple chances of winning especially during the bonus game which offers additional Wilds and multipliers applicable to all your winnings as soon as they are triggered.
You should consider giving the Jekyll And Hyde slot a try as you may win big while enjoying a thrilling gaming experience at a decent price. You sould also try out other games based on this masterpiece which has been an inspiration to many movies and other forms of arts over decades.
