1. General Overview
When a player encounters a Betsoft slot game, it is usually easy to identify them as the game’s developer. Such is the case with the 3D video slot game titled “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.” The primary characters in this game are represented by those unique caricatures for which Betsoft has become popular and famous for creating. The game’s background places the player right in the middle of Dr. Jekyll’s laboratory where the animated doctor moves about freely from one side to the other. The video features are absolutely amazing, letting the player know they are in for an interesting experience.
2. Game Description
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde comes in a standard five reel format with 30 different pay lines. The game’s minimum bet is $.02 per pay line up to a maximum of $1.00 per pay line. The low paying symbols are represented by key components from the storyline (The Bobbie (cop), newspaper, Dr. Jekyll’s mansion, notebook, fireplace, door lock and of course Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) with the game logo serving as a wild symbol. However, this wild symbol only appears on reels 1,3 & 5 and only works in conjunction with the two main characters to create any significance. The blue and red beakers of the devious potion serve as scatters.
3. Features and Bonuses
The most interesting aspect of this game is the unique assortment of game features and bonus opportunities.
Free Games – During main game mode, the red potion beakers will appear throughout the reels. Each time one shows up, it fills the potion meter. After 100 hits, the filled potion meter ignites the free spins mode. During the free spins mode, the player is allowed to keep spinning for winnings until 12 blue potion beakers have appeared, filling the potion meter. This brings the free spins round to an end.
Double Up Feature – After each winning spin, the player has a chance to hit the “double up” button for a chance to double up their winnings. During this game, the player chooses heads or tails, doubling up each time until they bust or decide to collect their winnings.
Frenzy Bonus – If Mr. Hyde appears on reels 2 and 4 with the wild symbol on reel 3, the Frenzy bonus game is initiated. During this game, the player runs through the streets of London stealing bonus dollars until caught. The game comes with a potential multiplier of up to 30X the bet amount.
Potions Bonus – If Dr. Jekyll appears on reels 2 and 4 with the wild symbol on reek 3, the Potions bonus game is initiated. During this game, the player has to identify the elements that create the perfect anti-monster serum. The goal is to do this as fast as possible in order to increase the prize amount and earn a multiplier as high as 120X the bet.
While the baseline payouts are rather small, the game provides huge multipliers that can ring up big winnings. While waiting for the big hits, the video features and bonus games are exciting enough to keep the player interested.
