Where to play?
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is another visually rich slots offering which can be played on any Betsoft casino. The slot machine is based on Louis Stevenson’s Victorian era horror novel the ‘Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde‘.
‘‘The bonuses are reasonably predictable but there’s a monster raging just beneath the surface that makes Betsoft’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde graphically exciting.”
If you are not familiar with the story, Gabriel John Utterson a lawyer from London investigates the odd behavior and occurrences between that of his old friend Dr Henry Jekyll and the evil Edward Hyde. You can find out more about the classic tale on this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strange_Case_of_Dr_Jekyll_and_Mr_Hyde
With 30 paylines, 5 reels and a non progressive jackpot of 24,000 coin, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde has an average return to player (RTP) percentage of just above 96%. The game can be played on mobile phones and PC desktops from $0.60 up to $150 per spin.
If it’s your first time playing the slots we recommend that you play in the ‘Free Mode’ before you play it for real cash. Reason being it gives you a handle on the payouts at different coin levels, the symbols that pay the top cash prizes and how its bonus features can be triggered. The free spins bonus mode is initiated once you’ve accumulated 100 potions which is equivalent to 100 free spins but the average is 8 to 10 free spins with no multipliers.
If you’re looking for a slot machine with hard-hitting big wins this is not it, instead you’ll find a lightweight game that offers oodles of entertainment.
The good news is that Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde 3D online slot machine has more bonus features than most dogs have fleas. If we have to describe every single one of them this review will be the length of a short novel. Paying symbols that appear across the reels are Mr Hyde, Dr Jekyll, cop, golden key hole with key in it, a mansion and the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde logo (wild).
The coin range is 0.02 to 1.00. To get the most out of the game play with all 30 paylines. It contains a ‘Max Bet’ button for high staked players, a Double Up and Auto Play features. The latter feature spins the reels automatically for you for a pre-determined amount of times.
”Experience a classic tale of deep-rooted evil as a doctor develops a drug that unleashes his murderous personality.”
The Dr Jekyll and Dr Hyde logo is the wild, keep in mind when it appears on its own no cash prizes are awarded but should it appear in conjunction with the 2 highest paying symbols wins can be good.
Dr Jekyll Symbol and Red Potion
Should the Dr Jekyll symbol pitch on the third reel and a red potion on reels 2 and 4, all the Jekyll and Hyde symbols will be transformed into wilds. It occurs quite often and pays more or less 10x your stake.
Mr Hyde and Blue Potion
It’s similar to the above bonus feature. However, instead of one 2 blue potions are needed on reels 2 and 4 along with a Mr Hyde symbol on the third reel. The interesting bit about the feature is that you change into the evil Dr Jekyll, the cash prize awarded hovers between 5x up to 20x your stake.
Free Spins and Potions
For every red potion that appears on the reels the free spins meter fills up, it’s situated at the bottom end of your screen. The free spins feature is initiated once you’ve accumulated 100 potions which about 100 free spins. What we like about the feature is that you can keep tabs on your progress and that you’re guaranteed free spins.
Once you’ve notched up 12 blue bottles the free spins mode ends, you’ll most probably end up with 8 to 10 free spins. The biggest win we had during the free spins was 40x our stake. Once the free spins feature ends you have to fill up the meter again which felt more like work to us than entertainment.
During the bonus feature you become Mr Hyde, instead of murdering or maiming folk like in the novel, you steal candy from shops. The feature is triggered when Mr Hyde pops up on reels 2 and 4 and when the game logo pitches on the third reel, all in one go obviously.
The feature lacks that oomph and plays more like gamble feature to us, here’s why. The cops are chasing you and you must decide in which direction Mr Hyde should go-left or right. If you picked the right one you’ll find the loot, pick the wrong one and the cops will catch you. The biggest win during the feature is 30x which could best be described as ‘meh’.
At least this bonus feature offers a better cash price than the previous lot. It’s played when the Dr Jekyll symbols appear on reels 2 and 4 along with the logo symbol on the third reel (reel 3).
The top payout that can be won here is 120x your stake while the average cash prize is 50x your stake. You must pick a selection of chemical elements, basically it’s a ‘pick me’ feature. Your job here is to find 4 components that produces the anti-monster serum. If you succeed a huge payout will be coming your way. We must warn you though, it’s not easy to initiate the feature because of the cash prize it offers.
If you’re a low roller and looking for a game with loads of bonus features, Betsoft’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hide 3D slots is the way to go. Graphics wise it’s a cutting edge affair, the biggest cash prize can be won during the ‘Potion Picking’ bonus but triggering it is not easy.
