Elementary my dear Watson…
The Sherlock Mystery game had 5 reels, 20 paylines and you can bet one coin per payline.
The ‘Moriarty’ symbol is Wild.
There are three bonus features when playing Sherlock Mystery. The first bonus feature is activated whenever the ‘Sherlock’ lands with the ‘Watson’ symbol on its immediate right. When this happens you will be awarded 3x your total bet.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive the ‘Magnifying Glass’ bonus symbol anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing a crime scene with 8 pieces of evidence. Select the pieces of evidence one at a time to reveal prizes. When you reveal ‘Collect’ the bonus feature ends.
The third bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘221b Baker Street’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded 10 complimentary spins. During the complimentary spins and additional ‘Gun’ extra Wild symbol is added to the reels. When this symbol contributes to a win it will multiply the win randomly by 2, 3 or 5.
Sherlock Mystery has a reasonable selection of bonus features, but none of these bonus features are stand out original and many games with similar bonus features can be found elsewhere with far lower House Edges. It just doesn’t add up to choose this game.
