Sherlock Mystery Slots

The world's favourite pipe-smoking detective with the most brilliant mind and the most ludicrous deer stalker is on the hunt for clues in this recent release video slot from Playtech. It's a charmingly tongue-in-cheek homage to Arthur Conan Doyle's quintessentially Victorian British creation.

20 paylines across 5 reels the free Sherlock Mystery slot has a Free Spins round with Extra Wilds plus Multipliers and an additional Crime Scene Bonus Round where the gambler gets to play detective themselves. Professor Moriarty, Sherlock's arch enemy, features, offering generous cash prizes and the game is full of quaint little quirks like the 'Sherlock meets Watson' Bonus.

Enter 221B

There's no mystery about how to play this crime themed slot because it's available on all the big online casinos and you can choose whether to play for free or to play for real money. Either way there's no download needed for Sherlock Mystery.

All 20 paylines are adjustable to maximise on your wallet, but, if you want to maximise your chances of win lines you need to use all paylines. For this bets range from low limit 0.20 coins to up to 2000.00 coins for the high rollers.

There are Autoplay and Turbo Mode functions for speed junkies to take advantage of. We do, however, recommend that you play at first in a more leisurely mode to enjoy the in-reel animations and Sherlock's voiceover pearls of wisdom. Of course the pace is faster in Turbo Mode, but, you also lose a lot of the charm of the game.

Elementary Symbols On 5 Reels

Against a minimal black backdrop and reels the function buttons have a bricks and mortar feel and low-paying symbols playing cards A through 9 resemble door letters/ numbers.

The high-paying symbols are illustrated in a stylised retro cartoon fashion and feature Sherlock, Dr Watson, Moriarty and various iconic items of crime detection. The pistol and letter opener offer up to 400x your bet for 5OAK. Dr Watson and Sherlock will reward a player with 1500x and 2000x their bet respectively for 5OAK.

The cloaked and mysterious Moriarty, however, is the hero here posing as Wild Symbol and substituting all symbols except the bonus symbols. For 5OAK he will reward a player with the highest cash prize of 10,000x their bet.

Scatter Symbols are the 221B Baker St plaque landing anywhere on the reels and triggering the Free Spins for three or more.

Look out, too for the magnifying glass landing on reels one, three and five. All three of these will trigger the Crime Scene Bonus.

A Bounty of Bonus Features

In Sherlock Mystery there are three bonus game options to boost your bankroll. The first, Sherlock meets Watson, occurs when Dr Watson lands immediately to Sherlock's right. The two squares are then transformed to the drawing room where the gentlemen are enjoying a revitalising pot of tea. Sherlock remarks "Elementary, my dear Watson" as they reward you a 3x Multiplier of a player's bet.

Next, we have the Crime Scene Bonus where three of the magnifying glasses will cause Sherlock to ponder thoughtfully as he mutters "Hmmm, mysterious!". The player is then taken to a bedroom crime scene with a variety of 'clues' strewn around. Your task is to play detective and reveal the cash prizes that each 'clue' offers. The more you reveal before uncovering "collect", the more you win.

Third are the Free Games Bonus where 10 Free Spins are on offer with Extra Wilds. You're taken to a new set of reels, which, in a nice touch, feature ornate flock print wallpaper as if we've arrived in the drawing room of 221B.

The pistols now double up as Wild Symbols and, when they complete a win, will shoot the symbol revealing a random bet Multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x. Free Spins can be retriggered infinitely and both other Bonuses are still available during this one.

Prolific Holmes In Online Slots World

The much loved Conan Doyle character and novels are as common a slots theme as they are inspiration for films and TV series.

Indeed IGT's Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt for Blackwood video slot of the recent feature film, starring Jude Law and Robert Downey Jnr, is a fantastic online slot to try. It boasts 30 paylines, multipliers and lots of Bonus options.

Turn Detective and Play for Free now

If you compare this Sherlock Mystery video slot to IGT's big film tie-in, Playtech's offering is a lot more simplistic with a Victoriana feel. It does, however, offer huge charm of its own with a catchy little tune and amusing references to this ever popular character. It's a diverting online gambling game and we recommend you don your deerstalker and give it a whirl.
