About Sherlock Mystery Slots
You can’t avoid Sherlock Holmes right now. From TV series (BBC’s Sherlock and the US drama, Elementary) to big-screen Hollywood outings from Guy Ritchie, the Victorian detective and his amazing sleuthing abilities keep finding new fans.
And with Sherlock Mystery, Playtech have gone back to basics. Played over 20 paylines and five reels, Sherlock Mystery is styled on the original Arthur Conan Doyle books than any Hollywood films. Characters are cartoonish and old-fashioned, and include Holmes, his sidekick Dr. Watson, the arch-enemy Professor Moriarty, a gun and a knife.
Moriarty is the Wild and substitutes for all regular symbols in the game except the Scatters. Also, five Wilds on a payline pays a big-time 10,000-coin jackpot. There’s a nice added extra if you land Sherlock and Watson facing each other on the reels. For that you’ll earn a jackpot worth 3x your total bet.
Three or more 221b Baker Street Scatters (Holmes’s legendary address) anywhere triggers a free spins bonus feature with 10 spins, an extra Wild, and a random multiplier attached to all wins. You’ll get the multiplier if and when the Wild participates in a win, and you can win 2x, 3x or 5x your win.
Meanwhile, land BONUS symbols on Reels 1, 3 and 5, and you’ll start the Crime Scene Bonus. Here, you need to search for evidence at the crime scene. Pick from eight possible items to reveal a cash prize. Hit the ‘Collect’ symbol and your bonus round ends.
For fans of simple bonus features and uncomplicated features, Sherlock Mystery is a good showcase of Playtech’s arsenal. If you’re after more involved bonus features, however, you might want to hunt elsewhere.
