Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde slot review
Is it possible to distinguish the good from the bad in people? Dr. Jekyll tried to do that with his potions, creating the evil Mr. Hyde, who roamed the streets, looking for victims. Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel was used as the main theme in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a five-reel, 30-payline video slot, developed by BetSoft. The 2014 release is packed with features and gamers who decide to help Dr. Jekyll will be generously rewarded for their trouble, up to 480,000 coins. Mix potions to trigger the Free Spins feature, create Wild Hydes, win instant payouts of up to 20x the bet. The Frenzy Bonus can reward you with up to 66x the bet, while Potions Bonus offers a maximum prize of 160x the bet.
The reels in the base game are set in Dr. Jekyll’s study and he will keep you company and mix potions as you spin the reels. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are the two symbols that pay the most, offering up to 1,200 coins. The Logo is also there, acting as a Wild only for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde symbols, and also triggering additional features. The Police Officer is looking for Mr. Hyde on the dark streets. Also, there is a Lock, Dr’ Jekyll’s Mansion, Fireplace, Diary and Newspapers, all acting as low-paying symbols. The Blue Potion and the Red Potion are crucial for the Free Spins feature.
The mansion is pretty dark, so take care when mixing potions, because you can easily make a mistake. The 2014 release features five reels, three rows and benefits from 30 adjustable paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Choose for yourselves how many paylines you want to play with, but we advise you to use all of them, simply to boost your winning chances. Set the coin value somewhere between £0.01 and £1 and set the bet per line (1-5). Betting starts at £0.30, while the biggest wager you can place per spin is set at £150.
Land Red Potions on reels 2 and 4, while landing Dr. Jekyll on reel 3, to turn all Jekyll, Hyde and Logo symbols into Hyde Wilds. The elements will go crazy and randomly switch positions on the reels, creating new wins and rewarding players with special Hyde Wild payouts. Land Blue Potions on reels 2 and 4, while landing Mr. Hyde on reel 3, to get a special random bonus of 5x-20x the bet.
As you spin the reels, you will notice that the Red Potion fills the Potion Meter beneath the reels. Land ten Red Potions to fill the Meter and trigger the Free Spins feature. Freebies are played outside, on the city streets. During the feature, the Blue Potion will start filling another Potion Meter beneath the reels. When you collect five units of the Blue Potion, you will fill the Meter and end the feature.
Land Mr. Hyde on reels 2 and 4, while landing the Logo on reel 3 to trigger the Frenzy Bonus. This will make Mr. Hyde travel the streets of London, avoiding officers of the law. Gamers can win up to 66x the bet in this Bonus game. The Potion Bonus is triggered when you land Dr. Jekyll on reels 2 and, while landing the Logo on reel 3.
