The compelling tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde that was presented to the world by author Robert Louis Stevenson has inspired many works. These include films, stories and not least of all online slot games. Unlike some of the similar offerings out there, the atmosphere in this Playtech offering is rather subdued and very eerie. Be sure to keep the sound on for the great atmosphere building FX and its overall impact on your experience. There’s a brick wall as the game’s backdrop, and it’s covered in a green mist that further intensifies the creepy vibe. The Victorian portrait symbols on the reels don’t do much to cheer the place up either.

To shake off the uneasy feeling that Jekyll and Hyde leaves you with, let’s have a look at its layout instead. It boasts a total of 5 reels and 3 rows, and comes with 25 active paylines. The number of paylines is fixed so you won’t have the opportunity to regulate them at all, and this affects the betting range accordingly, where the minimum bet is a total of 25p per spin. The maximum bet, on the other hand, will set players back some £120 per single spin.

Wild

Keep an eye on Dr. Jekyll on these reels, as he acts as the game’s Wild symbol, and as such he will be able to replace any of the other symbols with the exception of the Scatter. In doing so, it will help contribute to winning combinations. What’s more, whenever there is a possibility for the Wild to form those winning combos, it will expand to cover the whole reel it’s on, while at the same time, Dr. Jekyll will transform into a terrifying Mr. Hyde. Keep in mind, however, that the Wild can only land on the middle reels 2, 3 and 4.

Scatter

If you land 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels this will trigger the Freespins Feature, where you actually get the choice of two differing Freespins modes. One is the Jekyll Spins, which will provide you with a Wild multiplier. Initially it will be 1x and every time you land a Scatter on the screen during the feature, that multiplier will increase – first to 2x, then to 3x and finally to 5x.

Your second option is the Hyde Spins. During this mode one of the higher value symbols will turn Wild whenever a Scatter lands on the reels. Now, regardless of which mode you go for, you will notice that there is no specific number of freespins that are awarded, instead, the feature lasts until you have landed 4 Scatter symbols on reel 5. With this in mind, it should also be clear that there is no opportunity to retrigger the bonus.

Feature Bet

At an extra cost, players will have the opportunity to increase their chances of triggering the Freespins Bonus. This can be done with the help of the Feature Bet. If you choose to activate it, it will cost you double your regular stake. And as a result, you will have the opportunity to trigger the bonus round with Scatters that are even a position below or above the reels. Notice also that when the Feature Bet is active, the potion symbol that is the Scatter will turn from green to red.

Verdict

If you scare easily, Jekyll and Hyde may be a little too much for you. But fans of this type of genre will be absolutely thrilled by the fantastic atmosphere and high quality visuals that this title boasts. In addition, the medium variance will ensure satisfying wins and at decent intervals, too. Of course, the Feature Bet will also make for a handy addition if you’re more of a high roller.
