Gaming software giant Playtech never seems to run out of unique ideas for new slots games. Their latest release is Sherlock Mystery. This game is based on one of England's all-time great fictional characters, Detective Sherlock Holmes. The game challenges players to solve the mystery of how to hit the big jackpot. All they have to do is keep hitting those bonus opportunities.
On first impressions, this looks like one of Playtech's better efforts. The game is non-progressive and has 5 reels and 20 pay-lines. The cool looking avatars consist of the playing card symbols plus possible murder weapons, clues, villains and terrific caricatures of Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr Watson. The game's graphics are quite clear and sharp, while the colour scheme is fairly professional looking. The 3D video graphics are interesting, but could have been made a little more exciting.
Features and Bets
Sherlock Mystery requires a minimum bet of one coin with a maximum of 200 coins per line. The coins can be designated with values ranging from.01-25.00. The information symbol effectively explains the game and pay-outs. There are Max Bet and Auto-Play buttons designed to speed things up for players who like their action fast. The game lacks a lot of other bells and whistles until it comes to bonuses. The game's biggest base level jackpot is 10,000 coins and it’s a bit on the high variance with RTP of 94.09%. With Multipliers, the best possible jackpot would be 50,000 coins!
Symbols and Bonuses
Sherlock Mystery is loaded with available bonus opportunities. The evil villain Moriarity has been tabbed as the wild symbol. This symbol substitutes for everything except Scatter symbols. The scatter symbols are represented by the "Bonus" and "Baker Street" avatars. Three Bonus scatters will lead the player to a "Crime Scene" bonus game. In the bonus game, the player keeps choosing from eight pieces of evidence until they hit the "collect" piece after which the player will be awarded any prizes accumulated during the game. Three or more Baker Street scatters will earn 10 free spins. If any "extra Wild" symbols (a gun) appear during a free spin, it will set off a series of random multipliers (2X, 3X, 5X). Finally, players should enjoy the "Sherlock meets Watson" bonus. Anytime Sherlock Holmes lands to the immediate left of Dr Watson, the player will receive 3X the amount of their wager.
Sherlock Mystery is a 5-reel, 20 payline Playtech non progressive video slot machine. Sherlock Mystery also offers free practice, wild symbol, scatter symbol, multiplier, bonus game, free spins and more.
