Sherlock Holmes was one of my favourite fictional characters when I was growing up and I believe that I have read all the stories that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has written. So when I found this slot I had to try it of course.

This is 5 reels and 20 pay lines medium variance slot from Playtech software provider. It has one feature that I really like and it is called the Crime Scene Bonus and the most that I have won here is 30 x bet. In order to trigger this feature you need to land 3 magnifying glasses anywhere on the reels. In this bonus feature you need to solve a crime, you are actually taken to another screen where you need to choose pieces of evidence. You are collecting the pieces until you find the one that says ‘collect’. Sherlock meets Watson is another feature 3 which pays 3 x bet every time. This feature happens on a regular basis. There are also regular five of a kind wins and the most that I have got was 7.50 euros, and the free spins of course. The free spins are triggered with 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels. You get 10 free spins and if you get the revolver on an active pay line it will award a multiplier that goes up to x 5. The first time I triggered the free spins I got 20.60 and the next time I got 14.60.

The graphics are not that stunning, the symbols are too big and the background is very simple. Only at the top of the reels you can see some London streets from the 19th century I suppose. The higher value symbols are designed specifically for this slot so you can see a revolver, a letter opener and Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson of course. The wild in this game is the evil Moriarty and the scatter is the Baker St. sign.

Do you like detective themed video slot machine? If you like it, I think this could be very good game for you to try it out. Playtech designed good game here, 5 reels video slot with 20 paylines. I tried to play this game many times while I was playing at Playtech casinos and I liked it.

The game offer free spins feature and bonus game. The bonus game is set in that way that you need to pick from 8 different pieces of evidence and you win cash prizes. Picking ˝collect˝ will exits the bonus game. I had only twice this bonus game and I never won any big amounts on it. But I like it, I like to play detective.

The free spins feature is much more better. 10 free games with extra wild symbols and random multipliers. I really like this feature, my best result was near x60 bet from this feature. I liked that time when I got two wild symbols with x5 multiplier. I think this game could provide big winnings and I think I will play it more often in near future.

The sounds are good so as the graphics. I also like that there is turbo mode button, which I used sometimes to speed up my gameplay session. Most of the time I ended at zero on my balance, but I still like it because it is a good game.

During main game I also had some nice winnings around x20 to x30 bet. The free spins feature could also be retriggered during free games which is cool. For me this video slot is much more better than some others from Playtech software company. I like the theme about Sherlock. I will rate this game with 9 stars. I took it one star because of payouts into bonus game. I expected higher winnings.

The legendary crime buster is back, this time with Sherlock Mystery, one of the newer addition to Playtech stable of games. Sherlock Holmes lovers would love this game, but me, I love any game that pays well, Sherlock, Warlock, Whateverlock it may be. The entire scenario is very well presented with a dark brownish hue, probably to reflect the centuries old atmospheric conditions that Sherlock was accustomed to, and with acceptable music and sound effects to go. Nothing to complaint about. 0 star down/up.

Rather unexpectedly, the Wild symbol isn’t Sherlock himself, but a ninja-like criminal instead, with a lovely 10,000 x line bet win for 5 of them. The ‘221b BAKER St’ Scatter symbol pays 200 x bet, awarding 10 free games at the same time, Sherlock pays 2000 x line bet, Watson 1500 x, whilst a combination of Sherlock+Watson icons pay 3 x bet. The Bonus symbol does not pay anything besides awarding a Bonus Game. Paylines are 20. A very good Playtech paytable, as always. 0 star down/up.

The 10 free games come with an Extra Wild, the Pistol, has a random win multiplier of x 2, x 3 and x 5, and of course, can be retriggered infinitely. Anything less wouldn’t be Playtech! Activation of the free games is by getting a scatter on reels 1+3+5 at the same time. A Bonus symbol on reels 1+3+5 at the same time activates the Bonus Game, whereby you pick items from the crime scene, a bedroom, and get cash rewards. Pick ‘collect’ and the picking ends. Get a Pistol on reels 1+3+5 at the same time and you win nothing, unless they make a winning combination, hehe. 0 star down/up.

Only 1 thing is lacking in Sherlock Mystery…Expanding Wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4, which could bring about huge payouts that all players love. Still, the Extra Wilds in the Free Games are doing a pretty good job by appearing quite in numbers regularly and creating lots of wins, big and small, so that covers a bit for the absence of Expanding Wilds. Picking items in the bedroom, or anywhere else, has never been a big hit with me, purely because the cash rewards are hardly ever big, usually within 20 x to 30 x bet amounts, but they do come quite often though, so it’s better than nothing. The Sherlock+Watson icons combination comes quite regularly too, but only paying 3x bet amount, with Sherlock saying “Elementary, my dear Watson”. Hmm. I would prefer “Consolation, my dear Watson”, referring to the 3 x bet win. Ah well, another better than nothing win. Other than that, the game plays well, pays reasonably good, but I like the Free Games the most, because they usually pay more. What I’ve got so far are all within 30 x to 70 x bet amounts, but I haven’t played enough of Sherlock Mystery, so those big wins are probably hiding under the bed in the bedroom, waiting to be picked out! Just you wait you 5 Wilds…I’ll get you with that x 5 multiplier one of these days! Hehe. A very satisfying game with very good win potentials, although not as massively as some games could. 1 star down.
