This is certainly not the first time that we have seen Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde make an appearance on the reels, but the BetSoft version that we are looking at here has been around for long enough to generally be considered the market leader and standard for players. If you are into BetSoft games then you will be well aware of how good they look and this one does not disappoint in that regard, and plenty of win lines are joined by a huge number of features to make for one of the most epic slots gaming experiences that we have ever seen. It can be tricky to keep track of on mobile screens at times, but if you want a mobile slot app with a bit of depth, this is almost certainly what you have been looking for.
What to Expect
Every symbol on the board looks great and fits in with the theme too, and one of the most important is the wild card – although it might not necessarily be exactly what you were expecting. The Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde logo is the symbol in question and it can only land on reels one, three and five. It will not fill in for just any symbol or land any wins in its own right, but what it can do is turn into either a Jekyll or Hyde symbol if it will complete a winning combination. Given that they are the highest value symbols on the game, we would rather it turned into one of them than one of the other themed symbols!
The red and blue potions on the board are crucial to the action and each is associated with one of the starring characters. A red potion on reels two and four with Dr Jekyll in between will see all Jekyll, Hyde and logo symbols turning into proper wild cards, and they can even move around the board to make for even bigger and better wins. With the blue potion and Mr Hyde in the same configuration, players will be awarded an instant prize that is worth anywhere between five and twenty times their total bet.
If you land a red potion on its own, you will fill the free spins meter at the bottom of the screen. You will need a hundred of them in total – fortunately not all at the same time – and the spins will begin. Rather than a set number, the game will instead keep track of blue potions landing. When this number reaches twelve, the free games are over, but it is easily possible to play through dozens of games before this happens.
There are pick a win prizes in the Frenzy bonus and even more cash to be won in the Potion Picking Bonus. They are every bit as good looking and well-themed as the rest of the game, but they are not the most involved features and actually feel like they have been stripped back somewhat compared to the online version of the same game.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
One thing that we never like to see is a mobile version of the game that has been compromised compared to its online counterpart but that has been the case here – even though the pick bonuses still lead to basically the same prizes, it does leave us feeling like we are missing out a bit. Nevertheless, the rest of the action on offer here on Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is top notch and will be exactly what BetSoft fans are generally looking for as part of their gameplay. The game is a bit light-hearted compared to what we would expect too, so horror fans might want to look elsewhere. Overall, we would have to say that Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is pretty solid, but some distance from being as spectacular as it could be.
