Sherlock’s Reel Mystery Has Recognisable Symbols
This slot game is obviously about one of Sherlock Holmes’s mysteries. This game has five reels and twenty pay lines, and was developed by OpenBet. You can wager one coin on each pay line. The background to Sherlock’s Reel Mystery is pure Victorian, with street lamps already lit and fog swirling about.
Regular symbols include Inspector Lestrade, and Dr Watson, a Dog with bared teeth, Moriarty, the standard Damsel in Distress, and the Baker Street Sign. There are three separate brown bags, each of them stamped with a letter, Q, K and A. The Wild symbol is the Gun with a Wild sign, and the Scatter is the Violin. Bonus symbols are the gold Safe and Sherlock Holmes and a Magnifying Glass. The Gun Wild can substitute any other symbol in a winning combination, except for the Scatter symbol and the Bonus symbols. The symbols in Sherlock’s Reel Mystery all become animated when they form winning combinations.
The Free Spins Feature
To activate the Free Spins feature, you will need three or more of the Violin Scatter symbols to appear anywhere on the reels. You will be given between ten and sixty free spins. These free spins start at once, and when a Wild lands on any of the reels it immediately becomes a Super Wild, and will remain in place for the number of spins determined by that symbol. This bonus round will allow you several Super Wilds on the reels at the same time, and this will help you earn some really good payouts.
The main bonus round is activated when three or more of the Sherlock Holmes symbols appear on the reels. Players can win multipliers in this round that range from five times to five hundred times your original wager. There is no skill required in each of these bonus rounds, and each time you play one you are guaranteed a win of some kind.
Several Bonus Games
The Safe bonus game is triggered when you land three or more of the Safe symbols anywhere on the reels. Moriarty now makes his appearance, and wanders across the screen looking villainous, beginning to blow up some safes. This may be a mini game only, but you can win anything from a multiplier of four to as much as twenty times your total stake.
The Sherlock Holmes feature is an important one in Sherlock’s Reel Mystery. It is activated by the appearance of three or more of the Sherlock Holmes symbols anywhere on the reels. You have to try to see through Moriarty’s disguises to try to identify the master criminal in this final bit of the game Sherlock’s Reel Mystery, and you have five guesses to do this. This bonus round can award you between five and five hundred times your total stake, depending on your guesses being correct or not.
Three Progressive Jackpots
This game also offers a Progressive Jackpot, or rather three progressive jackpots, a mini, a midi and a maxi jackpot. To win the mini jackpot you need to find three Magnifying Glasses on the reels, and for the midi Jackpot you need four Magnifying Glasses. To win the huge maxi Jackpot you will need five Magnifying Glasses on the reels.
There is some skill involved in Sherlock’s Reel Mystery. If you can guess correctly the first five questions, you may be able to narrow the options in the final pick.
