Sherlock Holmes the Hunt for Blackwood video slot from IGT is based on the blockbuster movie from 2009. I know that I was waiting for the movie with anticipation so when I saw that there is a game that is based on the same movie I had to play it. The sound effects are really good, because you feel that any moment something good will happen. I was not disappointed. There are many features and some good wins and I do not remember when was the last time I have played a game that is as interesting as this one.

Sherlock Holmes the Hunt for Blackwood is a 5 reels and 30 pay lines video slot game. As soon as I started playing the game I managed to activate the Picker Puzzle. I got 3 bonus symbols on the first, third and fifth reel. Then I had to pick some objects to collect a cash prize or to continue to the next round. This time I was not lucky enough because I only won 30 x bet and I could not continue to the Blackwood Wheel Bonus or the Hunt Bonus.

There is another feature during the base game which awards a multiplier that goes up to x 10 and I never won a higher multiplier than x 7. Holmes and Watson symbols also appear stacked on the reels during the base game and they can bring some good wins too. During my session I did not manage to activate the main features but I will definitely play this game again.

Sherlock Holmes the Hunt for Blackwood is a game that I highly recommend. This is one of the best games that I have played recently. There are some really nice wins during the base game, but it is a bit difficult to activate the main feature. But still even if you are not a fan of the movie or the books you should try this game.

I'd never seen this game available on-line until the other day, it turns out it's not all that rare now I've actually looked into it but I did previously think this was a land casino only game. I've had a couple of big hits on the game in my local Grosvenor Casino in the past few years so I was definitely excited to give the on-line version a try.

I was attracted to this game in the casino when I saw another player in the bonus round with a bunch of locked wilds on screen and random multipliers up to 10x being awarded at the end of every spin. I figured the game must have some huge big win potential and jumped right on after watching that player cash out £2500 from a £3.00 bet. Of course it took quite a while before I managed to experience the same combination of features that player scored, in fact I think it was several trips to the casino later but I did eventually manage to get all five locked wilds during the free spins which not only awards a tonne of big wins but also doubles your final total at the end of the bonus round!
It can be quite hard to get the free spins as you need to first catch the bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, then you need to pick at least three of the right symbols out of just five picks. To get the maximum number of locked wilds too you need a lot of luck with 10 free spins although if you manage to get the maximum 15 then your in with a reasonable chance.

There are 30 fixed paylines and also a bonus bet that has to be played on every spin doubling the minimum stake to 0.60 per spin. I really don't like this and would prefer IGT had built their paytable taking into account the additional features, but at least the features offered do give you a sense that they are worth a little extra investment.

The graphics do look a bit cheesy to me, it's kind of hard to explain but I guess I never think photos of people look that great as symbols on the reels. The animation is a little bit choppy as well and could certainly have benefited from a few extra frames.
