The famous Victorian tale of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a popular one for slots, with this example from Iron Dog Studio being among the best. The Victorian theme is replicated nicely in simple, yet effective graphics and the mood is enhanced by the sometimes sinister music that is appropriate to the overall theme.
With high volatility – we may even say very high – and a 95.6% RTP this is not a game for the feint of heart, but it is one for those who like their special features when playing a slot. Jekyll and Hyde offers no fewer than 4 bonus features, some of which we will describe at the end of this brief review.
A simple 5 x 3 layout makes the game visually familiar and it is easy to get to know, yet the multiple bonuses do make the overall game somewhat complex. Once a player has the game play understood there is a 1000x maximum jackpot and various free spin bonuses that can be quite lucrative.
Symbols include the evil Mr Hyde, who pays 33.3 times your stake for 5 in a row – the most valuable symbol – plus his alter ego Dr Jekyll, a policeman’s helmet, smoking cigar and other associated items, as well as the standard playing card symbols.
How to Play Jekyll and Hyde
The basic game is simple, the aim being to line up matching symbols in the winning area as with most pokies. However, the fun with Jekyll and Hyde comes with the four different bonuses, so we thought it best to skip straight to the special features as that’s what you want to know about.
Special Features of Jekyll and Hyde
The four possible bonus features are:
- Scatter free spins provides spins of various quantities, triggered by the scatter toadstool symbol on the odd reels.
- Expanding Wilds comes into play when the wild symbol of potions appears, providing a lucrative possible win arrangement.
- The Police Badge triggers wilds across the reels and lines, giving a variety of win options.
- Potion expanding sticky wilds is another possible feature triggered when the potion scatter is in the right places.
Jekyll and Hyde is a more than engaging slot if you can manage to understand the many different bonus options, and we recommend you play in demo mode before you give it a real go.
