It was back in 1886 that Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic horror novel ‘The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ was published. Over 130 years later it remains a hugely popular subject for films, even a musical and slot games. Play this entertaining slot and there are plenty of chances of getting winning combinations.
With expanding wilds on the reels, the wins should be coming along as regular as Dr Jekyll transforming himself into Mr Hyde. Throw in some multipliers that can get as high as 5x and this is a game full of profit.
Of course, potions are a key part of this classic tale and you will be keen to stay out of the trouble in the free spins round and avoid breaking any of the doctor’s precious potion bottles to ensure even more wins.
This is a tale that has been told many a time and this dark and gothic feeling slot from Ash Gaming is a huge success. It’s a five-reel slot that has a total of 25 fixed pay-lines. The least you can spend on one spin of the reels is €0.25 and the maximum is a whopping €100 so hi-rollers will be in their element here. Simply gamble amounts you can afford to lose.
There’s also the feature bet but this doubles your stake.so be careful with your budget. With this feature, you require one scatter to trigger free spins even when one position above or below the reels.

There’s also the ten to Ace playing card symbols. The best paying symbol is Dr Jekyll and five of those on a pay-line wins you 1000x your line bet.

There are full details of how much the winning combinations are worth in the paytable. Also, have some free games to see how all the features work. It’s also possible to set up to 99 automated spins of the reels.
The wild symbol here is the demonic looking Mr Hyde. Don’t be scared though because he can provide you with some big wins. This only appears on the second, third and fourth reels but when it does it isn’t satisfied with just taking up one space. It suddenly expands and takes up the whole reel and then you see how much money you might have won because of that. It can’t substitute for the scatter symbols which are the red and green potion bottles.
The green scatter is the standard scatter, the red one is the powered-up one. This can help trigger the bonus round even if it happens to be one position above or below the reels so keep an eye out for it as it can point you in the way of some big wins.
To get some free spins you need three of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Now it’s decision time as you have to decide whether to be Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde which is basically wilds v multipliers.
If you decide to be Mr Hyde, then the Dr Jekyll and the two female assistants symbols become wild during the free spins, so some big wins could be coming your way. Wilds will appear on the second, third and fourth reels and expand to fill the whole reel if that will produce a winning combination.
If choosing the Jekyll mode, then the multiplier increases by 1x when a scatter arrives on the reels and this can get up to 5x. There are ‘unlimited’ free spins whether you are Jekyll or Hyde but actually they end when four potion bottles are broken. That happens when a scatter comes along.
If you love the Robert Louis Stevenson story, there’s also the BetSoft game, ‘Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde’ that is extremely entertaining to play. Those of you who like games with expanding wilds, then have a bash at IGT’s ‘Isle of Plenty Mega Jackpots.’
Another great slot from Ash Gaming. The Jekyll and Hyde theme is always a popular one and it’s well adhered to here. The bonus games offer some great chances of big wins whichever mode you choose, definitely recommended.
