Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde slot game is yet another high-quality 3D slot by Betsoft, published in July 2014. It has 5 reels, 30 paylines, and the bet can range from $0.02 per payline up to $150 max bet. The game offers a maximum win of 480,000 coins, and if you’re prepared to wait you’ll enjoy the Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde slot.
Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is the archetypal tale of evil in all of us and the violence that lurks within, published as a novella by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886. The story revolves around Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde, and here is the psychological horror story in shape of a slot game.
Graphics are visually impressive but don’t work too well for a slot game. Symbols are really full of detail and each one of them is stunning, but they are not easily distinguishable from one another – most are just brown stuff when you see them with your peripheral vision. The entire game feels a bit dark, too. The characters are nicely done in high resolution, but this is how characters were being drawn in computer games in 2000s so Betsoft can’t get too many points for this, despite the obvious effort. Not that the animations aren’t great, but this game runs in 1067×600 default resolution and 1280×700 recommended resolution, which means it isn’t true HD. What a shame.
The game is forcing you to play with a lower bet because the goal is to fill up the red meter, and you won’t have enough spins to do that if your bet is too high as this game eats up your bankroll rapidly during normal play. You’ll need some 100 Red Vials to fill up the red meter, so it will take anything between 150 and 200 spins to do that. And you’ll likely use the excellent Autoplay feature to get there. Note: any change in bet value resets the red meter.
When you finally fill up the red meter, Dr. Jekyll will drink the red potion and will change to Mr. Hyde. The game screen will change as well, and this time it will be the blue vials that boost the blue meter, and it will only take around ten of them to fill the meter. As long as you’re in this game, you’re getting free spins, and you’ll get a total of 15 to 20 of them, depending on your luck. When you fill the meter, Dr. Jekyll will drink the blue potion and will change to Dr. Jekyll again.
The game isn’t too rewarding when it comes to paying, and it will take some time before your balance goes back to positive and even more time before you see a significant profit. If that happens, the best choice is to just collect the winnings and walk away because the game will inevitably eat up your profits again. The Return to Player (RTP) of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde slot is 96.17% but that takes into account the maximum win of 480,000 coins which is extremely rare, of course, and during normal play the RTP is just not good.
All Betsoft casinos will have this game as it’s fun to play yet isn’t too rewarding financially. 5Dimes is the best choice, their Jackpot Casino, to be more precise, one of the six casinos they have. Other options are Videoslots and Bet365.
