When it comes to detectives, there’s probably one more famous than all the rest, Sherlock Holmes. It’s no surprise then that there are a number of online slots with this infamous sleuth as the theme. Another joined the ranks on 9th July 2019, Sherlock of London ™.
The game was created by RabCat Gambling, one of the many developers who have teamed with Microgaming to bring new and interesting titles to the online casino market.
The game is available at various online casinos that offer Microgaming titles, but we opted to give it a try at 32Red.
Playing Sherlock Of London ™
When you first open the game it’s easy to see why many have waxed lyrical about the graphics of Sherlock of London ™. It’s characters are well designed and the Victorian London backdrop, shrouded in a dark veil of fog, really sets the scene.
On the reels you will find many of the characters from the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novels. Of course, there is Sherlock Holmes and his trusted sidekick, Dr Watson. Moriarty is also there and Inspector Lestrade and Irene Adler also make an appearance.
The playing card symbols from 10 through to Ace are present, but with a Victorian feel to them. Additionally there are are wilds, free spins and 221B Baker Street symbols.
Features Of The Game
Sherlock is the game’s wild and he will substitute for all the standard symbols on the reels. He is also linked with all the games bonus features. These are:
Connecting Wilds – when you spin in two or more wilds on the same spin, they will connect by forming a trail of wilds – much like Wild Toro.
Double Win – if two wilds land next to each other on two separate columns then all wins created will be with a 2x multiplier.
Bonus Spins – this is triggered when a wild is on reel one or two. You will be awarded either one or two bonus spins. Any wilds that land will then be locked in place. Both of the above features can be triggered during the bonus spins.
Free Spins – you need to land at least three of the Holmes and Watson symbols on the reels (the scatter) on a spin to trigger the free spins. You will be awarded 10 but please note, the bonus spins cannot be triggered in free spins mode. However, the Connecting Wilds and Double Win can be started.
Whilst in the free spins mode, Dr Watson becomes a second wild. He does not trigger the bonus features but does substitute for the standard symbols to create winning combinations.
The free spins feature can be retriggered.
