Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel on the battle between good and evil has been incredibly popular since it came out in 1886. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has inspired many play writers, filmmakers and even game developers. In 2012, Microgaming released its own adaptation, a 243 Ways-to-Win online slot game: Jekyll & Hyde.
An online slot game with a dark side
Good and evil. The battle between these two started when humanity came to life and never ceased. Many have attempted to reach the pinnacle of altruism, without much success, while others have followed the darker path. But the truth is that absolute light or darkness doesn’t exist. The balance between the two is total and exists in everything and everyone. But what would happen if a man was able to separate his own nature? Would one trait be able to conquer the other one or would the eternal fight continue?
In an attempt to liberate himself from his inner demons, Dr. Jekyll conducted an experiment in 1886 that enabled him to disjoint his personality. Liberated from his conscience, the evil alias of Jekyll’s Mr. Hyde was free to satisfy his sinful desires. At first, the experiment seemed to be a success, Dr. Jekyll’s mind was finally at peace. But Mr. Hyde’s psyche rapidly started to overshadow his gentile soul and started to prevail. Now Dr. Jekyll is reduced to liberating his evil side only at specific moments, as he hopes it will help him keep control and retain his own personality. Will you join him in the universal battle between good and evil?
