If you’ve you ever watched a Sherlock Holmes film or television show, you’ll instantly recognise the theme of this slot machine. Set in a dark and dank street, unpleasant crimes are taking place and you must spin the reels to try and stop the criminals and put them behind bars. There are paylines highlighted to the left and right of the reels with the control panel sitting to the lower of the screen.
The story of Sherlock Holmes takes place with the symbols on the reels, these are high-collared criminal, Sherlock Holmes, Dr Watson, pistol, letter, 221b Baker Street logo, magnifying glass and card values from 9 through to A.
Reward for Justice
Get that high-collar wearing criminal to fall as a complete payline and you’ll trigger that 10,000-coin jackpot. No matter what your stake – small or a high rolling 2,000, should this symbol fall as a five of a kind, that 10,000 non-progressive jackpot will be yours. Naturally, the more you stake per spin, the bigger the value that jackpot will be. Sherlock Homes will award 2,000 coin for five of a kind whilst Dr Watson awards 1,500 coins.
Scrutinise the Slot Bonuses
You can get your hands on a bonus game, free spins and multipliers, but not only that, wilds and scatters can also work to your advantage. Take the wild symbol, this is your high-collared wearing criminal. The wild will substitute for all other symbols bar the scatter and bonus to help form winning paylines.
The iconic 221b Baker Street logo is your scatter, three in view and you will be awarded with the free spins feature. You will initially be handed 10 free spins – all wins that you trigger during the free spins will be awarded with a random multiplier. Not only that, but there will be extra wilds added to the reels. You can re-trigger free spins by landing three more 221b Baker Street logos on your paylines.
Land a magnifying glass on reels 1, 3 and 5 to initiate the Crime Scene Bonus. You will be taken to a crime scene and you have to search the items within that room to look for evidence. Pick from the 8 pieces of evidence to win cash prizes. Pick a ‘collect’ will return you a cash prize and end the bonus game.
Can You Receive Lots?
Players can trigger plenty of wins whilst playing the Sherlock Mystery slot game, because when you are in the free spins bonus round, you can not only re-trigger free spins, but you can also trigger the bonus game by landing a Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson on your reels.

Sherlock Mystery is a medium variance slot that triggers big wins via the bonus game and free spins bonus.
