Microgaming has released a new slot game Sherlock of London developed exclusively for them by Rabcat. This new title brings the excitement and intriguing adventures to life in the form of a thrilling 5x3 reel, 25 payline online pokie. Through the sinister smog of Old London, a legendary detective and his loyal partner are hot on the trail of big wins.
Pursuing the city’s most wanted in metropolis, the brave duo are skillfully aided in the main game by a line-up of double wins, connecting wilds, and bonus spins. The supposed mastermind of investigation is skillfully portrayed, appearing as a wild symbol throughout the main game and offering numerous ways to high rewards.
The game has a number of symbols. The low paying symbols include the A, K, Q, J and 10 card suits. Other symbols include Dr. Watson, Irene Adlers, Inspector Lestrade and Moriarty. The 221 Baker Street sign is the most paying and awards 40 times the wager for five on an active payline.
If more than one wild appears on the reels connects all wild symbols together and change all other symbols on the way into connecting wilds. If two wilds land adjacently, they will combine to trigger the double win feature making all line wins from that spin to be doubled.
Moreover, one or two bonus spins can be activated by landing one wild symbol on either reel 1 or 2. During the bonus spin feature, the activating wild stays fixed on the reels while the rest of the symbols spin again.
There is also the Free Spins Feature, which is activated by landing three, or more Holmes and Watson scatter on one spin. This will give you ten free spins. During this feature, the bonus spins are not active. Instead, single wilds that appear expand and fill the whole reel. The Connecting Wilds and Double Win features can hit during the free spins as well.
In the Free Spins Feature, the Dr. Watson symbol acts as a second wild. It doesn’t activate the extras like the standard wild but it replaces all the usual symbols. The range of extras on offer here is quite impressive too especially all the wild perks. The free spins can be re-activated with the scatter symbols up to a total of 20 extra spins.
The game’s bet options are shown at the bottom and you can easily adjust the amount going on each line. You can only change the stake, while the lines are fixed at 25. The bet range runs from $0.01 to $2, and the total bet also changes from $0.25 to $50.
In terms of payments, Sherlock of London pays out as much as $2,000 per line or S$50,000 total with a possibility of winning up to $100,000 if a double win spin occurs. This means a maximum of 2,000x the bet on each spin, free spin or bonus spin. This is a medium variance game therefore the max pay is quite good.
