Being a classic story of a split, psychotic personality figure, it’s a dark, but enchanting story with Mr. Hyde being the alter ego. And Playtech’s version includes great graphics and design like a horror flick, instead of this game having a cartoony and generic feel. Even the soundtrack will give the player the chills as with the feeling of going through a real, live haunted house.
And besides the graphics, this game is also very exciting and fun due to many of it’s extraordinary features, bonuses, reels, paylines, and so forth. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has 25 paylines and five reels. It has scatter and wild symbols as well, and the play range is extensive from 25p to £2,500 for each spin.
In this story created by Robert Louis Stevenson, some of his story characters, a cane, a notebook, and a top hat are included in the lower levels of this game. The green potion bottle, which is the scatter bonus symbol, can be on any reel, and the Dr. Jekyll’s symbol, which is the wild symbol, can appear on reels two through four. The Dr. Jekyll symbol will also expand when a win is possible covering the entire reel. When this happens, Dr. Jekyll is also transformed into Mr. Hyde. Additionally, the potion bottle can unlock the feature round, but three green potion bottles must be anywhere throughout the reels to get the free games feature. If opting to use the feature bet, players can also have the red bottle to trigger a spin that can occur even when landing outside live reels. This would improve the player’s chances of activating different features, even though it costs more for using this privilege.
Additionally, there are more details to Playtech’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For one, the free spins bonus is gained when the player spins three scatter on reels two through four. With this option, the player has the choice of Jekyll or Hyde spins in which Jekyll is beneficial with an increasing multiplier, and Hyde is beneficial with increased wild symbols. Another aspect of this game is when the potion bottle lands on reel five during a free spin. In this instance, the player will either receive an extra wild symbol, or an increase in multipliers. And furthermore, a small amount of the potion is used each time the position is used. Indefinite bonus spins can also occur when the player keeps retrieving free spins until the potion is used up after the fourth potion appearance. In these cases, some players think it’s better to choose the free spins of Jekyll to obtain up to 5x multipliers, and in hopes of the potion scatter not appearing again.
With Playtech Jekyll and Hyde, bonus features can lead to sticky wilds, free spins, and up to 5x wins with the multipliers. Another thing to note is that once a feature round is triggered, the Jekyll spin option that lands a scatter on reels five can increase the multiplier eventually up to 5x. The Hyde spins option that lands the scatter on reel five will turn a symbol into a wild for the remainder of the free spins.
