Jekyll & Hyde, the online slot from game from Playtech, is based on the classic novel that was written by Robert Louis Stevenson. The online slot game emulates the tale of Dr Jekyll and his destructive transformation into Mr Hyde.
A total of five reels showcase themed and standard playing card symbols all designed to fit the sinister setting of this online slot game. The reels spin amidst billowing green smoke with eerie sounds playing in the background and a foggy stoned wall sets the backdrop.
There is a feature bet option available for those wishing to play Jekyll & Hyde with higher stakes. Expanding wilds are present and the free spins feature comes with two modes in which to play. Dr Jekyll is the expanding wild that only is seen on the three reels in the middle. If he forms a win he transforms into Mr Hyde and expands to cover all positions on the reel.
Game Details of Jekyll & Hyde
Jekyll & Hyde has 25 fixed pay lines with bets in the normal play starting from 0.25. In order to play the feature bet the stake must be doubled up. This will power the powered up red potion symbols and have them available to trigger free spins. Auto play and turbo mode features are available too.
Symbols pay left to right and must match three to five times on a pay line. Top paying symbols are three characters from the story. The male and two females can pay out if two are present on the pay line. They pay up to 1 000 coins while a top hat and a note book are worth up to 150. The reels also feature playing card icons that represent lower paying symbols.
Free Spins Bonus with Two Modes
The Jekyll & Hyde scatter symbols are those displaying green potion. Being scatter symbols they do not have to appear in any particular order but there must be at least three on the reels to play the free spins bonus. If the feature bet is in play the red potion symbols will count as scatters even if they are slightly off the main reel set.
The free slots spins bonus of Jekyll & Hyde offers a choice of two different modes in which to play out the free spins feature. These are the Dr Jekyll mode and the Mr Hyde mode.
Choosing the Dr Jekyll mode means that any scatter symbol landing on the fifth reel awards a multiplier which increases for every scatter further landing on reel five. The multipliers start at 1x and increase to 2x, 3x and lastly 5x.
Mr Hyde mode turns any character symbol into wilds when a scatter symbol lands on reel five. These become wilds for the duration of the feature and any standard wilds land stacked.
There is no exact number of free spins that is awarded for either option. Free spins rather play out for as long as the green potion bottle has liquid. Every time a scatter lands on the fifth reel, the bottle empties and the Jekyll & Hyde free spins bonus will end when it is completely empty and smashes.
