Sherlock Holmes The Hunt for Blackwood Slots

It’s time to travel back to the 1890’s where you’ll join the infamous private detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. John Watson to bring Lord Henry Blackwood to justice and prevent him from committing more hideous acts of evil – and you’ll be well rewarded for doing so in this feature rich slot from IGT!

While we’ve seen several online slots based on the private detective who resides at 221B Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes The Hunt for Blackwood is based on the blockbuster 2009 movie which was directed by Guy Ritchie and stars Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law with Holmes and Watson searching for clues as to Blackwood’s next devious plot to stop him in his tracks.

The Stakes Are High

With Blackwood plotting against the establishment and lives being in danger the stakes are extremely high, and this is translated to the betting limits on this 5 reeled slot that contains 30 paylines as you’ll have to stump up extra coins for a feature bet, meaning that 60 coins is the minimum you can join the hunt for, while 6,000 coins is the maximum. It’s well worth the fee though as it boasts several exciting bonus games including two completely random features along with the Picker Puzzle feature that will see you spinning a wheel to collect prizes while evading Blackwood and a free spins feature!

Familiar Faces on the Reels

If you’ve watched the movie or read the books the faces on the reels will be all too familiar for you with Sherlock Holmes, Dr. John Watson, Irene Adler, and Inspector Lestrade making their presence known. The biggest rewards of all come from the Sherlock Holmes logo though, plus you’ll also see Holme’s dog Toby, a violin, stopwatch, magnifying glass, and pipe, plus an assortment of other symbols are used for the free spins bonus feature.

Pick Your Way to Rich Rewards

The atmosphere gets even more intense whenever you trigger the Picker Puzzle feature by landing the Bonus symbol on the first, third and fifth reels during the same spin as you find yourself in Sherlock’s room for a pick ‘em bonus game that sees you reveal cash prizes (one for 2x your stake, two for 5x your stake, or three for 10x your stake) or clues which can lead to the following bonus features for even greater rewards – having an eye for detail pays very well as Sherlock came to learn!

Blackwood Wheel Bonus: Three Wheel symbols grant you access to this feature, however you should aim to collect four of them as this sees you spin a wheel with even richer rewards. You’ll then spin an ornate wheel which is adorned with a trio of emerald gemstones and contains cash prizes along with Sherlock and Blackwood symbols. The objective is to dodge Blackwood while collecting as much cash as possible, however when you land on him one of your three emerald gemstones will become inactive. Landing on Sherlock will see all of them reactivated, and should you be fortunate enough to enjoy ten spins of the wheel and still have active gemstones, your winnings will be doubled in value.

The Hunt: Locating three Hunt symbols will arm you with 10 free spins while four Hunt symbols sees you begin with 15 free spins, with them playing out on reels designed in the style of a map. This map will have five locations circled, which are where Blackwood has committed his terrible crimes, and should you land a Holmes or Watson symbol on these locations it will become a Locked Wild (also known as a Sticky Wild) that remains in place until all of your spins have been played. On top of this, if you’re lucky enough to fill all five positions with Holmes or Watson your winnings will be doubled!

Mystery Features Create Suspense

When spinning the reels in the base game you could be treated to random mystery features that occur completely at random, with two variants included in this slot to further increase the level of suspense you’ll experience.

Multiplier Bonus: This simply sees a multiplier bonus worth between 2x and 10x applied to the spin that you just made

Teamwork Feature: When this feature triggers all the Holmes and Watson symbols that appear on the reels will be combined into a single symbol featuring both of them which is worth much more
