Sherlock: A Scandal in Bohemia is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game uses 25 paylines, playing from left to right.
Wilds – The “Female” is the game’s Wild symbol. Wilds substitute for all symbols, except scatters and bonus symbols.
High Paying Symbol – The highest paying symbol in the game is the “Mirror Kiss”. The “Mirror Kiss” will pay out 10 times the bet if you can land 3 as part of a winning payline, 15 times the bet if you can land 4 as part of a winning payline and 25 times the bet if you can land 5 as part of a winning payline.
Free Spins – The “Padlock” is the game’s Free Spins symbol. 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels will award you with Free Spins. 3 gains you 10 Free Spins, 4 gains you 15 Free Spin and 5 will gains you 20 Free Spins.
Bonus – There are 2 Bonus symbols: the “Sherlock Holmes” Bonus symbols and the “King of Bohemia” symbol. Three or more of either of them will trigger their respective bonus features.
Free Spins – You trigger 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins by landing 3, 4 or 5 Free Spins symbols respectively anywhere on the reels on a single spin. The Free Spins cannot be re-triggered and the amount you can win on the feature is limited to the amount set by the operator. If that limit is met the feature will end before all Free Spins have been completed.
The Paparazzi Bonus Game - The Paparazzi Bonus Game is triggered when 3, 4 or 5 of the “King of Bohemia” symbols are revealed on a single spin. The feature is played out over 4 levels. Each level has a number of different options from you to choose from, with those numbers reducing as you move up levels. Level 1 has 4 options, level 2 has 3 options, level 3 has 2 and level 4 has only 1 option. All wins as added together and if you reveal a Paparazzi, the Bonus Game ends. The game cannot be triggered during the Free Spins feature.
The Newspaper Bonus - The Newspaper Bonus Game is triggered, when 3,4 or 5 of the “Sherlock Holmes” Bonus symbols appear in any position on the reels. The Bonus Game features only one level which offers 6 options to choose from. Each option will award you with a cash prize and the feature ends when one of the pictures you reveal turns out to be a compromising one.
Sherlock: Scandal in Bohemia is a fantastic looking game. The symbols are all well designed, as are the reels and the background they sit in front of. What I like most about this game is the narrative that it has been given and how all of the bonus features fit it so well. You get free spins and wilds along with 2 bonus features, each one linked really well to the Sherlock Holmes story. The house edge is a little higher than we would have hoped for but is still good enough for us to recommend this game.
