Dr Jekyll Goes Wild is a 5 reel, 10 payline slot powered by Barcrest – the game can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from as little as 10p to as much as £500 per spin. It comes with Barcrest’s Big Bet feature as well as 2 free spins features.

Visually, Dr Jekyll Goes Wild has a dark feel to it – set in an empty street at night somewhere in London, symbols on the reels include low value A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols as well as street lamps, Big Ben, scrolls, test tubes and the Emperor, they all pay 10, 25 and 60 times your total sake for 3, 4 and 5 on the reels. Dr Jekyll is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols bar the scatter.

As for the Big Bet feature, this consists of 5 linked spins – you can play at £20, £30, £40 or £50. Look out for scatter symbol as this adds 1 position to the trail – after you play the last Big Bet spin, the position you achieve on the trail is awarded with a number of free spins credited. The Free Spins feature then begins. In terms of the Big Bet options, here’s what you will get:

  • £20 Big Bet – you get 5 Big Bet spins and there’s a 10-position trail which any scatters appearing on the reels will add to the trail. You can get 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 75 free spins.
  • £30 Big Bet – you get 5 Big Bet spins with a 10-position trail – scatters will add to the trail with 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 or 75 free spins to be won.
  • £40 Big Bet – you also get 5 Big Bet spins with 5, 10, 20, 25, 30 or 75 free spins.
  • £50 Big Bet – 5 Big Bet spins are awarded with a 10-position trail. You can win 10, 20, 25, 30 or 75 free spins.

The other way to get free spins is to trigger the Free Spins feature which is accessed by getting 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 12, 14 or 20 free spins. Look out for wild symbols during the feature as 2 or more will give you extra free spins.

The other symbol to look out for is the potion symbol as 1 of these with 1 or more wilds will trigger the Hyde Spins feature. Here, wild symbols lock in place for the duration of the Hyde Spins feature – they also substitute for all other symbols bar the Sand Timer symbol.

You will carry on spinning until the sand time appears anywhere on reel 5. Once this happens, the Sand Timer will take you back to the Free Spins feature or will continue in the Hyde Spins feature. There’s an unlimited amount of Hyde Spins to be won so hopefully you’ll get plenty of sticky wilds in place.

Dr Jekyll Goes Wild is a superb slot in my opinion – it looks fantastic and accessing the Hyde Spins feature is where the big wins will come from due to benefitting from locked wilds. It’s a medium variance title with potential wins of up to 500 times your total stake on each spin. If you like the theme, Playtech’s Jekyll & Hyde is a superb game to play.
