The game offers 5 reels with a total of 20 paylines for several chances to win some pretty good prizes! Sherlock Holmes, as a brand, has led to the production of TV shows, films and video games. In the pokies game, you assist Sherlock and Dr. Watson in solving the big mystery to catch Moriarty, a dastardly villain with a winning smile.
About the Game
The game has 20 paylines and 5 reels. You can place a single coin per line with a minimum value of 0.01 and a maximum value of 100. The jackpot is set to 10,000 coins, which can total to over a million with the betting options set to maximum.
There are three awesome features that you can take part in. There’s the Crime Scene feature that requires that reels 1, 3 and 5 have Magnifying Glass symbols all at once. The crime scene is a bedroom that has evidence, a total of 8 pieces. You select different evidence to win coin winnings until you select an object that says ‘collect’. Any winnings are transferred to your balance. There’s a feature called the Sherlock Meets Watson. When Dr. Watson is on the right beside Sherlock’s symbol, you trigger this round. You’ll hear Sherlock say his catch phrase: Elementary, my dear Watson. Your wager is tripled. The last bonus feature is the Free Games one. You need to land 3 or more 221b Baker Street symbols to unlock it. You’ll be given 10 free spins, and an additional wild symbol (which is the gun symbol) that reveals a random 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier when it is part of a winning payline.
You can trigger the other features during your Free Games round, which totals out to even higher payouts for the player. You can also trigger more free spins. All in all, the game offers some wide flexibility in terms of betting options that will appeal to betters of all types.
