Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is the kind of character – or characters if you prefer – that slots developers absolutely love. Everyone knows who it is, but you don’t need to shell out for a license to depict the character itself as nobody actually owns it.
BetSoft has taken the plunge with the game and it is fair to say that they have pulled out absolutely all of the stops in order to make it a cracker – something that you’ll notice as soon as the game loads thanks to the truly excellent visuals. It is one of the best looking slots ever and if that matters to you then that is reason enough alone to give it a spin.
Graphics aren’t everything of course and we’d expect some solid game-play and features to match. Fortunately, BetSoft has more than delivered in this area too. The action takes place across the standard five reels and up to thirty win lines are available, although they are fully modifiable. You can then opt for either manual or automatic play when you’ve selected a coin bet, by which time Dr Jekyll will undoubtedly have paced around the reels a couple of times already!
The first thing to keep an eye out for on the game is the potion meter. It replaces scatters functionally, as you’ll add to the meter every time the red potion icon lands on the reels. A hundred appearances are required in order to trigger the feature rather than three scatters, but what it does mean is that if you play the game for long enough, you’re certain to hit the bonus round, where free spins await.
If you manage to land red potions alongside a Dr Hyde symbol, all Jekyll and Hide symbols, together with the game’s logo, will turn into wilds. They’ll then spread themselves around the reels a second time, bringing even more wins with them.
If you carry out that combo with blue potions instead, then a random multiplier of between five and twenty times the standard prize value will be applied to all displayed wins. These features also continue within the aforementioned free spins round, making it possible to stack up some truly massive wins.
Great looks and some truly unique features definitely make Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde stand out in the crowd and it is worth a few spins of anyone’s time.
