Jekyll and Hyde Slots

When Robert Louis Stevenson penned Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in 1886 he wouldn’t have known the eventual impact the novella would have. Originally, the story would appear as a stage show, but would go on to spawn countless movies, TV series, audiobooks, songs, video games and even parodies. Of course, the story is now also the subject of this MicroGaming slot, where you’ll find Dr. Jekyll on the reels throughout the game. However, when you enter the free spins round, you’ll also encounter Dr. Hyde, who although evil, offers the highest pay-out at the entire game.

Alongside Dr. Jekyll you’ll find his beautiful, long dark haired love interest on the reels, who he will surely try to shield from Mr. Hyde. You’ll also find a bottle of purple poison and test tubes containing colourful liquids emitting strange gasses. These gasses actually form the playing card letters and numbers which complete the reels. The visuals of the game represent the Jekyll and Hyde story perfectly, as both the reels and the title are a good mix of the normal and the mysterious, with a splattering of blood in the middle of the title suggesting the horror filled nature of the story. The accompanying sound to each spin is much like what you’d hear at a horror movie of old, the theme adding much tension to each spin.

How to play & real money versions

Jekyll and Hyde is a 5 reel game which offers 243 ways to win. Very different to the usual win lines, here you’ll gain a win when hitting three or more symbols on adjacent reels from left to right, irrespective of the position on the reels. These 243 ways to win come at the cost of 25 credits. You’ll choose both the number of coins and the coin value, which you’ll multiply by 25 to give you your total stake for each spin.

In the base game, Dr. Jekyll appears very smart in a white collared shirt (looking very much like Hugh Jackman in fact) and is the highest paying symbol, worth 1,500 coins when landing 5 in a row. The dark haired lady comes next at 1,000 coins while the poison and the potions pay 750 and 500 coins respectively. The playing cards bring up the rear paying between 250 and 100 coins for landing the maximum 5.

The wild symbol is represented by the word ‘wild’ in flames, a nice mixture of yellow, orange and red. This will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter. Somewhat disappointingly there are no added extras with the wild – usually you might find a multiplier in place or a huge win when landing 5 in a row, but this wild is a very straightforward one.

The scatter symbol shows the title of the slot, with the same upright lettering for ‘Dr. Jekyll’ and the wispy green lettering for ‘Mr. Hyde’. This appears on all 5 reels of the slot and should it land 3, 4 or 5 times you’ll win cash prizes of 50, 250 and 1,250 coins respectively. More importantly perhaps, you’ll also enter the free spins feature.

The feature round sees you gain 10 free spins, with one key difference on the reels – Dr. Jekyll has now been replaced by Mr. Hyde. Mr. Hyde has a menacing look, with scars on his cheeks and is bathed in a green glow. However, it’s the pay-outs that really differ. Hitting this symbol 3 times in a row pays 500 coins, 4 times is worth a whopping 3,750 coins, while the maximum 5 pays the highest win at the entire slot of 7,500 coins. Most people would say they prefer Dr. Jekyll, but having played this slot, you’ll certainly be more drawn to Mr. Hyde! As an added bonus, should you land 3 or more scatters again during the feature, you’ll earn an additional 10 free spins giving you more opportunity to see Mr. Hyde.

List of Microgaming Slot Games


Jekyll and Hyde is an interesting game, but in a re-telling of the famed story, it won’t quite match your expectations. There is much scope here for a feature round outside of the reels, but the game is actually completely standard, with just a free spins round. This feature round is a good one with some originality, as it is unusual to have such a dominant symbol (in Mr. Hyde) but this doesn’t do enough to lift the game above average. Nevertheless, if you enjoy an atmospheric game with an air of mystery, this MicroGaming slot might fit the bill.
