Jekyll and Hyde Slot Review
The Strange Case of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde is a world known novel that has been read and republished for a very long time.
The eternal battle of good and evil is a never ending inspiration for many great creators, including video slot game designers. Jekyll and Hyde is the latest video slot game inspired by this novel, with some decent animations and corresponding background music. Visually the game looks attractive and can be very rewarding at times.
We are happy to see that smaller software providers like Ash Gaming are struggling in creating great video slot game that can compete with the biggest providers in the industry.
The video slot games coming from this provider are small in numbers, but have an attractive appearance and interesting bonus features.
How to Play
Jekyll and Hyde features a standard video slot game design with 25 pay lines, 5 reels and 3 rows. The minimum bet to spin the reels is $0.25 while the maximum is $125 per spin.
There is a Turbo Button available for anxious players that enjoy extra fast game play and the standard Spin and Auto Spin Button.
Jekyll and Hyde has only one classic bonus round in the form of Free Spins. Still there are some extra base play features in the game that are worth mentioning. The wild symbol can land on the 3 central reels and expands to cover the entire reel when substituting.
Another feature in the game is the Power Up Scatters feature. It can be activated by the player’s choice and makes the bonus round easier to trigger in exchange for a doubled bet size. The Free Spins Bonus with the Power Up Scatters Feature on can be triggered even if the scatter symbol is one position under or below the corresponding reel.
This way even if you don’t see the full 3 scatter symbols on the screen, the Free Spins Bonus will still be awarded. Once you do that, there is a choice offered between 2 different sets of Free Spins. The first is called Jekyll Free Spins and has an increasing multiplier feature attached. The second is called Hyde Free spins and here there are extra wild symbols awarded.
The number of free spins in both features is unlimited and the bonus ends when 4 scatter symbols in total land on the last reel. There is a catch in both features though, because the extra added features are triggered as a scatter symbol lands on the last reel.
In the Jekyll free spins the multiplier value is increased with each collected scatter up to x 5, while in the Hyde Feature a high paying symbol is turned wild with each collected scatter. The biggest wins can come with one scatter symbol away from ending the bonus round, which makes the free spins very interesting and intense.
We don’t know what the maximum payout potential of the game is, but the free spins can award some big wins on the reels.
The pay table is weak with a 1,000 coins max win, but in the bonus round it is increased substantially to at least 200 x total bet win in a single spin.
We have to admit that we were really attracted to the overall game design and visual appearance, but the pay table was a real disappointment. The highest paying symbol only awards 1,000 coins or 40 x bet win for 5 of them on an active pay line.
Because of this base play wins are small and your balance can drop very fast unless you hit a good bonus round. The free spins are interesting and have interesting features like the added wilds or multipliers. We like the Hyde free spins more because the extra wilds combined with the standard expanding wild can form many winning combinations on the reels.
Still you need a lot of luck to win anything decent in this game because most of the time the bonus round ends very fast, even after only 6-7 spins. This basically leaves you with a barely 10 x bet win and can be very disappointing.
The good side of the free spins in that you can win a big number of spins with only the last scatter waiting to land on the last reel. The tension whether the next spin will end the bonus or award a big win makes the free spins much more interesting. Big wins do come and our biggest was about 200 x bet, thanks to the 17 spins we played while we were waiting for the last scatter to end the bonus round.
