There is no Wild symbol when playing Holmes and the Stolen Stones.
There are two bonus features when playing Holmes and the Stolen Stones. The first bonus feature can be activated in a couple of different ways. The first way happens when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Lock Free Spins’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. The second way when you receive a ‘Coloured Shard’ symbol. Each time this happens the Coloured Shard is banked at the top of the reel it lands on. When you have collected 5 Coloured Shard symbols on a single reel the bonus feature is triggered. When the bonus feature is triggered you will be awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins all wins are multiplied by 3. During the free spins each reel has 5 diamonds above it. Each time you receive a ‘Diamond’ symbol it will be banked at the top of that reel. If the free spins were triggered by collecting five Coloured Shard symbols that reel starts with one Diamond already in the bank. If you collect 5 Diamonds on a single reel during the free spins you are awarded the progressive jackpot shown at the top of that reel.
The second bonus feature is triggered when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Lock Bonus’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing a warehouse and 18 crates. Select the crates one at a time to reveal cash prizes and Coloured Shards. The Coloured Shards will be added to the appropriate reel bank at the end of the bonus feature. The bonus feature ends when you reveal a Smoke Bomb. If at the end of the bonus feature the addition of the Coloured Shards you collected would result in one of the banks about the reels reaching five Coloured Shards you will automatically trigger the free spin feature described above.
