When Betsoft revisits The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde!

It’s been a very long time since Betsoft Gaming has gratified us with a new 3D slot. But the users who were able patiently to grin and bear it will today be more than fulfilled: the developer that has taken under its wing the excellent online casino Tropezia Palace has just launched its new title Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde™, and in version HD if you please! Betsoft Gaming has thus decided to tackle afresh a masterpiece of British literature. But what can we observe about this production with expectations as a blockbuster? Is the contract duly fulfilled? We are going to tell you.

A slot machine as good as the original work?

This is naturally the main question that Internet users, slots fanatics and library rats are asking themselves. For the challenge is formidable: to tackle The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a novel penned by Robert Louis Stevenson and published in 1886, is no small feat. For all that, the developer Betsoft Gaming seems to have done it brilliantly. From the standpoint of the narrative, the slot in 3D from this publisher remains completely faithful to the cult masterpiece: Dr. Jekyll, philanthropist who nurtures an obsession with his split personality, concocts drugs in his chemical laboratory. Hoping to separate himself from his malevolent form, Dr. Jekyll will see his experiment turn into a nightmare: night after night, the monster that lives inside him will take control of his mind; he will then become a colossal and ultra-powerful creature named Mr. Hyde.

“With its stroke of the pen so distinctive and realistic, fascinating work on the interplay of shadows and light, and total mastery with regard to graphics and sound effects, Betsoft Gaming once again offers us a promising title”.

The game’s introductory clip will in any case suffice to set the tone of the story, and even those who have never had the occasion to read the Stevenson novel will be left spellbound by this delicious tale, which ultimately goes to the heart of the concept of the struggle between good and evil. This Manichaean vision is, by the way, particularly present in Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde™. In the game, one clearly has a distinction between the doctor and his other half, who is hostile and disagreeable, to say the least. But Dr. Jekyll, who thanks to his flasks can push to extremes the personality he fears, does he not ultimately have the power to control his destructive impulses? We will be given the benefit of the doubt, for as in the novel the choice to turn toward evil seems to be deliberate in Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde™.

A great tribute to the work of Stevenson

betsoft jekyll and hyde gameThe slot from Betsoft Gaming is quite simply sumptuous.

What is certain, it’s that the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson would have appreciated this adaptation of his book, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. One will notice that, contrary to certain of the sixteen films that have been produced around this theme, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde™ remains quite faithful to the master work, which however was considered to be a “notebook full of rubbish” by the writer’s spouse. With its stroke of the pen so distinctive and realistic, fascinating work with the interplay of shadows and light, and total mastery with regard to graphics and sound effects, Betsoft Gaming once again offers us a promising title that will rivet the attention of players for many months. Moreover you will quite soon be able to play Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde™ for free on our site, which will be the occasion for you to defy the terrible Mr. Hyde and perhaps to save the man who carries within him the burden of two entities.
